Seattle SuperSeahawks

Fantastic game. Congrats Seahawks and fans. Now pack your and get your collective ass to Detroit. If you truly are the best 12th Man in the NFL (and you've been fantastic so far), you will find a way to out-number the Steeler fans at Ford Field. It's a tall task, but I'm calling you out!

NBA brawl in the stands repeated

I hate that correlations are being made between this incident and what happened in Indiana last year. I applaud Antonio Davis for showing restraint and finding out the situation before wildly throwing haymakers. I think if security had been paying more attention, this could have been stopped before it was a news story. Davis did what he had to do. The refs played by the book and ejected him. The NBA will probably fine/suspend him. But he protected his family, that's what counts. I totally agree. I'm sure Davis knew what he was doing was wrong when he was doing it, but it's a small price to pay to ensure the safety of your family. The officials did what they had to do and I wouldn't be suprised if Davis DOESN'T appeal his suspension.

Miller DQ'd near finish line of Swiss race.

I don't honestly believe that he was blitzed while racing. I would like to think that he has better judgement than that. I just like to razz people. If I had just won the WC, I would be up all night partying myself.

I understand missing gates. Believe me, I've clipped enough gates myself to know what it's like to go down the course backwards with one ski on. It's a hard enough thing to do and do well sober (especially at his level) without running gates under the influence. Racing is fun. Having a few cervezas on the slopes with my buddies is fun. Combining the two, probably not so good. RADS - Racers Against Drunk Skiing

Sucker-punch drunk in the NHL front office

Well said, loquax. No penalty will absolutely eliminate these kind of infractions. The only thought I have to add is, if it is the same guys commiting these aggregious acts, longer suspensions and, if necessary, banishments might help eliminate this element via less ice-time for dirty players. Let the players play and the thugs go be thugs on the street.

Yahoo Year-end Photos

I want to know where she got black bubble gum! Hey, guys, save that kind of thing for the showers. Michael Schumacher fails in his first attempt at pizza tossing. I like this one. Notice only the blondes fell down. This is where the Angels lost the Series. 'Scuse me, sir. I can't see the game. Could you please remove your head? When they say Tiger is looming within striking distance, they weren't kidding!! Ho!!! Some great photos. Here's to 2005 starting like 2006. Now, go pour yourselves a cold one.

New World Record Canopy Formation 85 Way!

Especially knowing that their were a few jumpers on the load, who albeit very skilled, had never been on anything as large as a 25-way. Sounds like a Minnesota vikings boat party!

Pot, kettle...kettle, pot. You two should have a lot in common.

"Maybe, in their defense, they sold the tickets when ... we were 2-5. Maybe they said, 'The heck with it, I'm not going to that.' " ... = our players were to busy importing strippers and playing with plastic dicks on boats instead of concentrating on getting better at a time when

Oh wait, never mind. (NFL version)

Except during that Week 1 loss, when he was benched. And that loss, or any single loss from early in the season, could come back to haunt us. (Especially the Steelers loss on Monday Night!)

Oh wait, never mind. (NFL version)

I got to watch the entire game here in San Diego, and for thosse fo you who didn't get to see it, the game was almost all Chargers. They shut out the Colts in the first half and kept Indy out of scoring range after giving up the lead so that the offense could come back and win the game. This team (the Chargers) is too good to be on the outside looking in right now. (Has any other team had a total losing margin of 14 points in a season?) Brees has been money all year (except Week 12 v. WAS), LT has been LT and when LT has been LT-on-the-bench lately, Michael Turner has been a good LT impersonator, Gates is Gates, and the receiving core is actually catching passes this year. Oh yeah, the defense seems to finally be gelling. Too many early round picks to be as bad as they have been. If the Chargers, by the grace of the Football Gods, make the playoffs, they will be a force to be reckoned with.

They are marching in the streets in Detroit.

Great! We can turn Ford Field into Suzuki Stadium or if Toyota gets involved, the Lexus Lions.

New Course, New Guides, Old Wounds

I can't wait. I just wish I had more friends down here in San Diego that were as jazzed about straping on the planks as I am.

It is good to see that the ENTIRE team (men and women) are doing well instead of just one racer like Picabo Street or Bode Miller (when he first broke thru). Maybe I'm just jaded from years of turning on the FIS and seeing the race results with nothing but Austria, Switzerland, and Germany and then having a separate page for the US finishers. Let's go for an all US podium in Turino!! U-S-A! U-S-A!

New Course, New Guides, Old Wounds

If you are near Colorado when this happens, GO SEE THIS!! I worked at Mammoth Mountain when the World Cup came 10 years ago, and these ladies are incredible! As far as young Miss Kildow, this is a prime example of why its important for parent to hire a coach if they wish their children to excel at sports. "He always supported me when I did well, which was 90 percent of the time, but when I didn't, he didn't handle it very well. It was so hot and cold. It was so much criticism and so much negativity, and it was really hard for me to balance emotions." It is so hard for children to separate their emotions for a parent and the criticism of a coach if they are coming from the same source. Kids need the criticism and the drive to succeed from a coach, but also need the love and support from home to balance it out. Its good to hear that the US has a chance in Turino in the downhill events. I'm sick of being second fiddle to the European nations. There is no excuse why we can be as good, if not better, than the elite in the racing circuit. War skiing instead of snowboarding. War Mammoth Mountain War freshies in 8 feet of powder

will the Seahawks beat the Colts in week 16?

D-CAF (bump-bump) D-CAF (bump-bump) I think Indy will win at Jacksonville, clinching a bye and home-field and then (hopefully) start resting their starters against my Chargers. The question is, is the chance for immortality more important to Dungy and the Colts than being healthy for the playoffs?

Turin medals have hole in the middle

I thought piazza's were usu. square. But I haven't been to Italy, so don't look at me. That woulda been kinda cool, a square hole in a circle. If piazzas are square, then a round one would be called a rotunda, wouldn't it? Nope. NBC will air 12 hours a day of US athletes getting beat by the Swiss No, it will be 12 hours of Apollo Ohno coverage.
