Mike Tice Probed.: An investigation by the NFL for Super Bowl ticket scalping. Wonderful news for the Vikes no doubt, amongst the recent Moss trade and the pending (?) ownership change.

Cool, thanks. She is on there as the Allery Animals.

Fantasy Baseball Reminder

Would there be any objection if, rather than my wife influencing my draft, I just told her to sign up for her own team in the league? Just thought I would put that out there for a thumbs up or thumbs down on that.

Yeah, I tried and I think I had the same problem. I think.

Whitey Ford Never Started an "Ultimate" Game

I'll just focus on the "ultimate game" bullshit.

Yeah, using his rationale Gene Larkin was better than Kirby Puckett.

Heat Fire Entire Season Ticket Sales Staff

Classy move.

(well, at least it sounds like they tried to place them elsewhere and help them out.)

Fantasy Baseball?

I was wondering this also. That and crying about Joe Nathan's arm falling apart.

Russians Honor, Horrify Aborigines with Ice Dance

They must have not gotten the okay for the Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah ice dance routine in black face or something. Apart from the theme it really wasn't that good anyway...not that I understood what I was supposed to get out of it really.

Andre Dawson Elected to Baseball's Hall of Fame

unless MLB is hoping to erase the history of the Montreal Expos from existence...

The Carter and Dawson plaques will be placed in an obstructed view section with a blanket over them...

Andre Dawson Elected to Baseball's Hall of Fame

Can't possibly fathom what the hell Hall voters are thinking on Alomar, unless they are really overreacting to the spitting incident. Alomar and Hirschbeck have become friends since then, and Alomar has contributed much to Hirschbeck's charitable causes.

Well, you can tell by The Arrogant Worms' song lyric (from Me Like Hockey) "Baseball slow like Forrest Gump, 'cept when Robbie spits on ump." That its been some time since the incident. Some people will just use any excuse to not let someone in first ballot who deserves to go in. Some voters seem get stuck thinking so-and-so was not first ballot so Alomar (or whatever current player it is) shouldn't be. Thereby making the same mistake that yesteryear's voters made.

Or..maybe it giving them too much credit to even over analyze their voting? Maybe they plunk darts at a dart board with players' names on it for all I know.

Andre Dawson Elected to Baseball's Hall of Fame

Rafael Palmeiro is going to be at the same time as Bagwell, and he does have those 3000 hits...

I think there is a lot of hate out there towards Palmeiro in that regard. I also thought that Palmeiro was allowed to play on and collect his 3000 hit following a positive test, but I could be mistaken on that part. Not sure how its going to play out.

The Blyleven thing is frustrating. He certainly gets my vote for best curveball.

Washington Hires Mike Shanahan as Coach

I think the only place less appealing would be the Raiders, at least until Davis kicks off. I guess we'll see if Shanahan is up to the big challenge though.

Texas High School Beats Opponent 170-35

Well, I know that in other sports, like baseball, for example, when I played I had a teammate who bunted for a hit when we were up by 9 or 10 runs and then stole second. The rest of us, his teammates, just told him get ready to have them throw at your head for being a dumbass next time up and that he had it coming. I think hockey probably has dangerous consequences for the running up the score/stat-padding, or violating unwritten rules, but is a bench clearing brawl the equivalent for basketball then? Hard foul?
