Ostertag's out

Ostertag is a dying breed in the NBA. As are the rest of the Seven footers who possess little athletic ability and are clumsy. Now Im not hating...I happened to like Grego.. but him and his kind are through. So long Grego....with many hopes of a happy retirement

Article VI: Online Meta-Correspondence.

More focus on athletics and less on personal issues surounding life. Sports-stardom has been a huge reason that blood thirsty talent has for a large part been replaced with a good show of charisma and nice looks.

3D live sporting events may come to movie theaters

I agree totally with you Timdawg. I can't remember the last time I saw a good movie at the theater....And sadly I go all the time. Also I'd go and watch my favorite teams play live in 3D. I'm sure it would be fun for a while. At least until I start to miss my recliner, my ice cold brews and my refigerator full of food that didn't cast an arm and a leg..

Blues' incredible streak is over

I'm not a big hockey fan, but I have watched the blues over the years from time to time: you know...just trying to support my area teams. And the fact that they have made the playoff so many years running is disturbing. What is up with the NHL and there playoff scheme? STL has had some bad teams over the years and certainly some teams that didn't deserve to make the playoffs. Like this years team for instance. On a side note, I'm glad the streak has ended. A least this year we don't have to watch them choke in the playoffs... amen

Keyshawn to Panthers

Way to go Carolina...Now you've got two selfish, "ME" orientated, give me the ball or I'll scream Wide-outs. It seems everyone is forgetting Smith's just as bad as Johnson...... its just that the later has been doing it a lot longer and Smith has yet to have a massive eruption. It wont be long now though.......

(New) Home, James

First off you can't deny the edge's talent. He's a very talented runner, and reciever, that got put on the back burner for the past couple of years with that QB of his....what was his name again. And secondly I'd like to remind you of a man named Marshall Faulk, who not too long ago found him self in the same situation that james is in now. Before Faulk got traded to the Rams they were one of the worst lines in the league, in both passing and in rushing. I think the first year with the rams Faulk put up over 2000 yr of total offense, 1200 in rushing. And he did all of this with the same line as the year before. Now im not saying that the edge will pull a Marshall, but he's got the talent to be able to do it. All in all, I think this was a smart move for james. The cardinals will help to renew his love for the game as well as hs leadership qualities. With solid depth at WR, a good arm at QB, and a great runner in james, I think the Cards are begining to remind me of the Rams of old. Watch out

Randel El to Washington NFL team

I wouldn't be surprised if he's used mostly as a kickoff specialist, or third down reciever. I think his route running and weak hands will keep him from becoming a # 2 WR. They should have tried to sure up the need for the SS spot before getting a second WR. They had been looking at that SS Archi guy released by the Rams

Shit, fan. Fan, shit.

Vote Bonds for president!!! By the time his long historic baseball career comes to the end he'll be the most popular American alive. The most hated--maybe--but popular none the less. His name will live in baseball infamy forever. Step aside Babe, kneel down Hanks, here comes Bonds. No doubt bonds used stroids, we didn't need a book to tell us that. But you can't deny him of one thing, and that's he was good. He wasn't the only one using stroids you know.....and yet no one else seemed to be that damn good. And Im not just talking about HR. Last I checked stroids did nothing for patience at the plate. I sure do hate bonds, but hes got my vote for pres..

Classic a Good Show for Baseball

The World Baseball Classic. Its kind of got a nice ring to it. And to tell you the truth so far so good. Early on I've been pleasently sirprised by the mount of following it has recieved, as well as how good the matchups have been. It's nice to see so many other countries coming together to play what used to be an all american sport. I think WBC has a chance to become something big...something the whole world can become proud of. Its a great move foreward for not only baseball but the whole world of sports..... Go Dominican....and I dont even feel unamerican

Shit, fan. Fan, shit.

d dog....your in denial...Look at bonds his first 12 seasons in b-ball (both physically and by the numbers he put up). And now look at the last 8 years... Players generally get better with age and put on some muscle, but come on man, not a player past his prime. And just to show Im not hatting...Big Mac..who I adore, is in the same boat. He was just more secrete about it, and people generally didn't hate him as much.
