Congrats to jbou for defeating moi in the spofi basketball league.

He won within the rules. If you are looking for it to be unsportsmanlike like it will be unsportsmanlike. Personally, there's no way I could have kept up with his adding and dropping.

Dodgers win their first playoff series in 20 years.

As a homer, but realistic, Dodger fan I would like to think the Cub's really didn't choke ... but rather the Dodgers just made them look pretty bad. I think game 1, that was pretty much the case.

But in game 2 ... watching in real time, I honestly thought the Cubs were blowing the game on purpose. Those three errors should not have happened. They looked as if they didn't care. While I really doubt they threw the series, they played like something is going on, and it isn't pretty. I actually felt bad for Zambrano.

Game 3 ... aside from maybe two players, the Cubs looked like they didn't care.

Ended up using Edge and Peterson. Maybe I should have used Peterson and Jones-Drew. Still think I am going to win the week (it's my pay league) even with Warner as my QB (he's already out of the game).

"I prefer the whore that is your sister"

At poker tonight, some dude was talking to his mom on his cell in the middle of a hand and his conversation included "hooking up" tomorrow with her. Obviously, that led to a few beer induced off-color jokes about this guy's mom while he was on the phone with her. As soon as he completed his call, he folded his phone, raised the pot, and in a serious tone said, "My mom is dying of cancer." Dude could have head butted me, punched me, or slashed my tires, but he chose to complete with a joke or the truth (we do not know). I guess there is a point in there somewhere. A little off topic, but that documentary about Zidane with the score by Mogwai was the nuts. Ok, enough poker references for one comment.

Tiger is just fun to watch. I also love seeing the emotion coming out of him and the other players. Do you think this is more a generation type of thing? I am Tiger's age and I do not see anything wrong with it from any player. I also think the idolization of the commentators is done for the ratings and sponsor aspect.

Little League controversy

I think both sides are in the wrong ... adults fighting over a game that has made the kid feel worse than he already did. On the flip side, if that kid gets a hit, they win the game, and next thing you know he's on Good Morning America, ESPN, and whatever news outlet. Walking a batter is part of the game, and consequently, part of the instruction of the game, at every level of play.

Read this: Analysis of KJs A big controversy came up last year when Tuan Lee was backed by Hasan Habib. Hasan was up 12 million to Tuanís 2 million in the WPT Championship when they were down to three. Tuan came back and won it all and Hasan had 50% of Tuan.

Done Deal, Nomar to Dodgers

Not to mention I am impressed at the length of these contracts (except for Furcal's). One year contracts give some great prospects another year to progress in the minors.

Done Deal, Nomar to Dodgers

The Dodgers might keep Choi around if they do not sign Reggie Sanders to play left. It looks like Lofton is going to be signed to play center. If Sanders is signed, say goodbye to Choi if he tries to get too much in arbitration. The bigger question is Cesar Izturis and what they will do with him, especially if there are no injuries to the infield by the time he gets back. And I sincerely Damon or the Dodgers are interested in making a deal.

Bargain or bust

Both the LA Times and LA Daily News report Nomar at Dodger Stadium on Thursday. I'd rather see him in the OF than first. This is Choi's breakout year.

"Nobody wants to see another Reggie Lewis."

I certainly would not feel comfortable having my employer tell me to take a DNA test because they are worried about their bottom line and insurance costs. Very illegal and immoral.

Rocker is still ignorant and so are the people still trying to get him fired up. There's no way he's going to make a comeback. He could only make it through a 29 pitch 1/3 of an inning. He's lost his mind and his game.
