Ring it up! Celtics crush Lakers for 17th title

Complete and utter dominance by the C's. Paul said it best at the half interview. Paraphrasing "We just want it more, we are not going to take our feet of the gas pedal". The Celt's scored 42 in the last quarter with mostly reserves in the game. That's just crazy.

"This giant strode the football turf of two nations."

Such a sad story. What I don't understand is, if he was still active in football up till 7 years ago why doesn't he have any money? I know the CFL isn't as profitable as the NFL but he must have made enough money over the years to retire and at the very least have decent health care and live at home instead of a nursing home. Not that nursing homes are bad places to live, my fiance works in one, but the elderly don't like living away from their family.

AT&T: Yet another name for Giants ballpark: Delivered.

I dare say in our lifetimes, we will see corporate purchases of actual team names. Holy shit! That'll be the day. I can see it now. The Golden State Googles The New England Razors The LA Yahoos That'd be some crazy stuff.

True Fan or Greedy Fan?

To answer your question. GREEDY What a greedy SOB. Holy Shit, I can't believe it. It does read like a freaking ransom note. Holy SHIT! He put a bad name on all us Patriot Fans. This is just obsurd. Enjoy your freaking ball!

The Coach as Culture Hero

From the followup article... This is just gross: For a while he insisted on sitting in the coxswain's seat. It made the whole boat sag and, with a wind up, water came over the gunwale. I was the guy facing him. He'd say "stroke" and we would row, he'd nitpick, and warn us about "catching crabs." I figured out later why he sat there. It wasn't to give us his wisdom close up; it was to show us his balls. Every time I looked down at my feet, there was one of them staring back at me through a gap in his shorts, legs spread wide. They were shiny and sick-looking. Even when I tried not to look, there one was, lurking out, weird as Sputnik. I lost my timing, I was relegated to the back of the boat and thankfully I never saw them again. And this is just disturbing: He was my coach when I played on our city's summer all-star baseball team. That's when I realized that he not only enjoyed the company of teenagers but had the maturity of one as well. During a practice, I was playing second base when, without warning, he whipped a ball right at me. It struck me in the face and broke my nose. He came over and said, "Got to get your glove up." Recently, he was sentenced to prison for arranging over the Internet to meet a teenage boy to have sex. Either way, there are coaches who deserve praise but there are even more that don't, but because of those few the rest are touted as hero's. Not much we can do about that.

Artest Finally Dealt to Kings

If Artest can settle down and start being a man that is responsible with his Day job he might be able to actually be a good team mate and be able to help his new team. Peja is definately a help for the Pacers but he'll never replace Reggie. We'll see in the long run if this was a good trade.

That bridge is awesome. It looks good in the pictures but a thousand times better in person. I'm also glad Theo is back. Though I wonder if whatever made him leave in a gorrilla suit got resolved and how.

Davis Gets 5 Game Suspension

Though I think the NBA should have suspended him I think it was too harsh. Two, three games tops is what I think should have been the punishment. The man was just trying to look out for his wife and he did it in a calm and adequate manner. The lawsuit is bogus. That's America for ya.

Yet Another Belichick Protege Being Sought.

Mangini does need at the very least another year under his belt. I hope he stays. BB will probably be giving him advice and probably to the extent of staying, not only cuz he needs him, but personal experience with that franchise.

And to think this could have been a shut out. A couple of inches to the right and that kick would have been a clank off the pole.

Wow. Complete and utter dominace people. I was surprised it was such a lopsided score but wow. Watch out the Pats are reving up for the Three-Peat. All I know is that I got my TiVo running and recording every game, it's history in the making.

If Marcus was to be the second coming of his older more mature and law abiding, that we know of, brother, he's got another thing coming. He's declared for the draft and I'm sure some stupid team will take a chance and pick him up but the guy has so much baggage, he needs help, professional help.

2006 NFL Mock Draft

This site was at least updated yesterday. That site has Vince going 3rd, if he opts for the Draft I don't think he'll go third more like second. Vince showed last night why he should go at the very least second. He'd be stupid no to come out this year.

Alexander Runs Away With MVP

I agree. Stats are not everything. Alexander carried his team the whole season, not just in the stretch run, and he set records doing it. Not to mention that he did it in Seattle, which might as well be Mars for all the national dap it gets on a regular basis. I also agree.

Alexander Runs Away With MVP

Tiki had a monster year but I fail to see how Brady worked with a championship team. This team is not the same team that one two in a row and on their way to three :). With all the injuries on this team Brady took it upon himself to carry the team on his back while everybody was getting healthy. That to me is MVP qualities right there. You can make a good case about a lot of players bu the bottom line is we don't vote. On a side not: Now that we have almost everybody back things are shaping up for another run at the Lombardi Trophy and three-peat. Lets go Pats.

Vince Young leads Texas to 41-38 win over USC

Bush should have been in the game on that 4th and 2. Horrible play call. Congrats to Texas and Vince. That game was his to win and he brought the Crystal Egg home to Houston. I think he's opting for the draft. If he don't he's stupid. I still think Bush will go first but Vince will go second. I think any team with any common sense would atleast trade up to get him. I don't think New Orleans is ready to pick a QB, but I might be wrong.

It's all about the Benjamins. I heard him on the radio with the same lame ass excuse as others who have joined the Dark Side, that the Yankees seemed to want or appreciate him more. Yeah, I'd say the same thing if I was getting that kinda cash.
