Milwaukee Brewers return to the postseason after a 26 year absence. As a St. Louis Cardinal fan I remember that series well.

Johnson survives tire debacle at Indianapolis

I watched for about 10 minutets & when I saw Kevin Harvick getting the "lucky dog" & being 15 laps down I didn't bother watch anymore once I realized that the NASCAR officials had taken all racing strategy out of the race. Once the green flag drops, NASCAR need to quit driving the bus and let the drivers drive the cars with the crew chiefs making the decisions.

The Day Cool Died

I don't remember who made the original quote. When you score or make a big play, act like you've been there before. That's cool walk off like its just another play.

What do you get the hockey fan who has everything?

That's almost as cool as the vibrating tabletop football game from the 70's Seriously the ultimate hockey fan gift would have to be the Wayne Gretzky hockey camp where the Great One laces up the skates & joins you on the ice

The Decline of the National League.

The annual who cares game has lost its roots there hasn't been a decent game in 20-30 years. I'll start watching again when you see home plate collisions like Rose & Fossee or Dave Parker throwing to Gary Carter to nail a runner at the plate. The game has turned into a fan favorite with a bunch of overpaid SOB's with the exception of players like Josh Hamilton, but I'm sure he will bring his status up to that level with the way he is playing. I can remember when an all-star bonus meant something to the players & they where excited to go. Now most of them are disgruntled because they don't get their 3 day break with the rest of their team mates.

A fun article about Yankee Stadium from a Boston Globe writer.

I remember Dale Berra playing in pinstripes. Oops I guess the writer meant Yogi. Oh yeah and that time the Beatles rocked that place in the 60's, nevermind that was at Shea. I've never been a Yankee fan but it was still a good article. I will bleed Cardinal red until the day I die

Lecavalier signs 11-year, $85-million extension with Lightning

The average career isn't 11 years. No wonder these idiot owners are whining they don't can't make money. On top of that ticket prices will increase and with gas going up as well, I will put my money in the gas tank & watch a game at home where I can drink 6 beers for $5 instead of 1 & relieve myself in a much cleaner bathroom

First round KO

Go Jose! away! far away!!! Jose quit looking for an additional 15 minutes of fame everytime you do, you expose yourself as the idiot that you really are. Besides, has anyone ever seen a good bench clearing brawl in baseball, all those guys do is hug each other & dance around. Its not like the good ol days when 40-some year old Nolan Ryan landed a good roundhouse to a batter's head that challenged him

Busch wins at Chicagoland as JGR ties series record

Good luck Tony. There has been very little success among owner/drivers. DEI was successful, but Dale Earnhart drove for RCR which is a different senerio and we have all witnessed DEI's slow decline since Dale Sr. passed away. Initially the fans & sponsors will stick by Tony Stewert, but if he doesn't contend like he did with JGR his flame will die out

Nashville is glad to be rid of PunkMan the Thug Jones Since the Titans selected Pacman Jones in the first round of the 2005 draft, he's had multiple run-ins with police: APRIL 2005 Where: Atlanta. What: Jones is named on an incident report after a fight broke out at a strip club. The female involved said she had no plans of pursuing the case. Outcome: A judge dismissed the case. JUNE 2005 Where: Nashville. What: Security officials at Regal Maxwell House hotel had trouble getting two friends of Jones to clear their room after checkout time.

Outcome: Jones entered a best-interest guilty plea and was sentenced to three years' probation for the felony conviction. MARCH 2006 Where: Fayetteville, Ga. What: Jones was arrested and charged with marijuana possession after police said he admitted to smoking marijuana in his car. Police were conducting a search warrant at the player's home, where the drug was found.

Two of four individuals initially charged were prosecuted, including Jones' mother. The vehicle in question was confiscated APRIL 2006 Where: Nashville. What: Metro police said a vehicle registered to Jones was involved in a drug trafficking ring 1,653 pounds of marijuana, 128 pounds of cocaine and $608,000 cash was seized.

Jones was never a suspect in the shooting but later turned himself in to face two felony coercion charges.

What: Police said Jones, his friends and a second party of three men were involved in an argument over a woman at a strip club.

"Greg Maddux? I bet you could catch him with your eyes closed."

bats right, throws right, farts left thats tame compared to story told by David Wells last year. It seems that Maddux has this habit of initiating or baptizing rookies in spring training by sneaking up on them and urinating on them in the showers. He's got that mature look of innocence but as his team mates will tell you, don't turn your back on him

Get a Vasectomy, Enjoy More Roundball

Just had my vasectomy done last Friday I had to spend the weekend recovering around the 3 reasons why I got it done. I think a weekend of sports is a lot better than 3 kids during the recovery process. This isn't a new idea, my neighbor told me that several of his co-workers rented a hotel suite for the same reason several years ago.

Why Stephen Brunt didn't cast his Hall of Fame vote.

I agree with Brunt, in 1998 Andro was a legal sustance at the time MLB had not banned or tested for performance enhancing drugs. I don't condone what Big Mac did to get a competive edge or to help recover from nagging injuries, but what rules did he break at the time? If the HOF of was based on morals, how many people would they be willing to kick out. Ty Cobb jumped in the stands to fight a heckler, Babe Ruth & Mickey Mantle were drank heavily and were womanizers. The only thing Big Mac is guilty of is making a fool of himself in congress instead of saying "we are not here to talk about the past" he should have told the truth on what he used while also stating that he did not violate any of MLB rules at the time. Not sure if it was bad legal advice or decision on Mac's part, but the congressional hearing is a poor excuse to keep a player who put up the stats he did from being in the HOF

The "clutchiest" hits in MLB playoff history.

How about the 1985 NLCS when Cardinals Ozzie Smith hits his first career left handed home run off the Dodgers Tom Niedenfuer as the late Jack Bucks screams "Go crazy folks go crazy!" Later in the same series Jack Clark hits another big homer to propel the Cardinals to the World Series which they eventually lose to the Royals and the blown call of umpire Don Denkinger
