Can you root for both teams from the Same City?: Both a Giants and Jets fan? How could that be? You could never be both a Cubs and a White Sox fan, that would be sacrilegious. (via Slate)

S.S. Lazio: will not have any fans for it's next European home game. Why? Because of "racist abuse and crowd disturbances" during the UEFA Cup match against Partizan Belgrade. Ouch! In the past officials have imposed a one-goal penalty against Rome's worse half for similar infractions (I'm not sure if the penalty was actully ever assessed). The punishment does not take effect until next year (pending qualification), but does this punishment go too far? Or was it fair? Anyone have a better idea for subduing crazy fans? The BBC story is here.

The New York Mets and the Met Office: are in transatlantic row. Trust me, the Mets have a lot more to worry about (like paying over .500 baseball).

Today: is opening day!!! Check out ESPN's 2003 preview or play a bit of Supreme Court baseball. Will the Angles repeat? When will Sosa hit number 500? Is David Wells done? What about that Cone guy? What is to become of the Yankees and the Braves? Will Godzilla destory America? So many stories, only 162 games. Remeber, it's baseball and you're an American. (Ok, well not everyone here is a American and not all American's like baseball, today is one of my favorite days of the year and can't help but to love bunting.) There is always cricket, but today is the day for baseball.

1,686 yards, 27 touchdowns and a torn ACL,: is taking a chance on Willis McGahee just too risky? We just might be able to count on the Bangels.

Kile in the Hall?: Darryl Kile will be on the 2003 Hall of Fame ballot. Although he was a great pitcher and his death was tragic, his stats just don't add up to enshrinement among baseballís best. This was a wonderful symbolic gesture, but does Kile deserve to be in the Hall? Or even on the ballot?

"White men can't dance.": Terrell Owens asserts that since African-American players are inherently more "expressive" than their fellow white players, African-American players are being punished by the NFL for just being themselves. Is this a legitimate complaint or is Owens just being himself by griping for the sake of griping?

MLB to Washington D.C.: No MLB baseball for you! (At least for the time being): According to ESPN the Expos are going to stay north of the boarder for at least one more year. If the Expos move, the team will likely move to San Juan or Portland. But, is it good idea to move a team so close to San Francisco and Seattle? In the alternative, I think it would be cool to have a MLB team in Puerto Rico.

Curt Schilling: says, "From everything I've heard, we're not going to set a strike date tomorrow. We're just going to give authority to perhaps do something in the future. " But, that sounds like "strike" to me. According to ESPN, events before the 1994 strike unfolded much the same way. So, are the players calling managementís bluff or is it strike time? I'm not optimistic.
