Calumny: Jon Heyman v Pete Rose: "Pitchers and catchers report," may be the best four words in the world, but "Pete Rose not in Hall," might be five of the most controversial. Turns out the Hit King has been spotted at the Bellagio, among other places, visiting the sports book. Also the IRS is after Rose again in a big way. After the January lovefest, looks like Ole' Petey's on the outside looking in again.

Revised predictions on when/if Rose gets into the hall now being accepted.

Calumny: Jeff Schultz v Georgia Force: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jeff Schultz lights up Atlanta for its lack of enthusiasm regarding the local Arena Football League team. I'm not sure what's more amusing though. That nobody in Atlanta cares (sound familiar?), or that enough people watched nationally to get better ratings than the NHL All-Star Game. NHL, what.. was.. that?

Choice quote (completely unrelated): Tonya Harding reportedly will fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson's next train wreck in Memphis in two weeks. You know, some setups just don't need a punch line.

Meanwhile, this AFL stuff looks like it might actually have traction. Are any of you football junkies actually watching this stuff?

Calumny: Sam Smith v NBA: Under the guise of power ranking the NBA, the legendary (noteworthy? heard of?) reporter gets off a few good ones at The Association's expense. A choice quote:

24. Toronto Raptors. Vince Carter returns after missing six weeks with a paper cut. But says he's not sure whether he can play because he has to attend rehearsal for his graduation from ceramics class.

Ouch!! No team is safe and plenty more hilarity ensues. Take a gander before the local media giant pushes it into the for pay archive.

By the by, I've got a pretty decent roster of comedic sports columnists, but I'm always looking for quality cheap shot artists. Got any suggestions? Please, no ESPN types, I'm trying to keep it real.
