Muscle-rub blamed for athlete's death

Again, where are the parents, coaches, etc. With the Bonds issue and "creams, lotions, etc" you would think it would raise questions. Like, you are 17 and you shouldn't have to bath yourself with creams and lotions and icy hot, etc. I wouldn't be suprised if the family sues Shaq cause he makes so things look so cool to wear.

"Once a player hits a home run, that's a fact. It's on TV. Everybody sees it. (The NCAA) can't copyright that fact. The blog wasn't a simulcast or a recreation of the game. It was an analysis."

So, me average joe sporting event attendee take out my cell phone, video King James dunking over Timmaay then put that on Youtube.. what then?

Billy Donovan's Magical Payday

Why should you break your back and bring in a kid who in 2 years is going to be making double your salary.. it is only fair that he takes the success of his past 2 years and go make a buck.

A-Rod calls for the pop-up... as he's running to third.

Last time I checked, MLB does not have a verbal interference rule. So all of this argueing is for nothing. Plus, when a guy is up to bat we are all taught from the age of 5 to scream stuff at them to take away their concentration, its part of the game. The guy made a rookie play and is trying to whine about it.. nuff said

Warriors Beat Mavericks in Series Opener

What about this game was stunning? Nelly played the same way he did all year which has worked and Avery... well he decided to change up, I guess what got them to 67 wins wasn't working out for them so why not change it up in the playoffs? Also, if a team beats you 4 out 6 times by double digits why would it be stunning when they continue that success? But like Dirk and Cuban have been saying all year, you have to beat them 4 times and they think that will never happen. I just hope it takes 7 games to prove someone wrong!

Dale Jr. Finishes Race For Competition's Car

This is what the greats do and it also proves it's not always about money. If Michael Jordan didn't get to the playoffs and if he was allowed and a team like the Piston's had asked him to play for them back in the day I have a feeling he would in a heart beat. I think this is/was great for the sport of Nascar, cause it was truly for the fans, they paid to see Jr race, I don't care what car he is in. Though this also doesn't speak very highly of Bush who apparently doesn't have good communication with his team and up and left the track. There is absolutely no excuse for that. I do personally think the points should be tied to the driver and not the car. I mean with the car of the future... its all about the driver so why not reward the driver. It wasn't like Jr wrecked a last place car and hopped into a first place car and took the race.

Florida 84, Ohio State 75

Let the big man score and keep him in the game. If Oden was in the Georgetown game they would have lost cause he slows down their offense and takes them out of it. I thought that plan was brilliant. If you watched, you would see that they didn't even try to stop him from scoring. The only time a foul was committed was when a guard tried to go to the basket. They kept reminding us in the game that Oden had only played 1 game the entire year over 30 minutes. That he wouldn't be there in the 4th Quarter and the way he was demanding to stay in the game ultimately slow the offense, didn't allow the guard to get hot early and they had to play catch up for 2.5 Quarters. What got OSU to the title game? Oden getting in early foul trouble and going to the Bench so Butler, Conley and Lewis could get hot. Keep the Big man in and out of foul trouble and you greatly increase your average of winning. Seems like Phil Jackson did this with Shaq when he coached the Bulls.

LeBron steps up sneaker war

My argument is this, are these places truly sweat shops? In China and Korea where most of these shoes are made the wages that are paid to these workers are sometimes 2-3 times more than the average worker in their area. Just because that amount of money isn't in US dollars we shouldn't call the place a sweat shop. In China, the majority of the companies provide 3 meals a day along with housing for all employees so with wages lower they are still in a way making out. The people will be with their companies for the majority of their lives. People like Nadar make blanket statements and why should a company like Nike have to answer to lies or misleading information? I think they as well as Michael and Lebron are doing is taking the high road. Every country in the world wish they had American wages but that isn't a reality and if we are raising the wages in China for the average Chinese worker it should be looked at under that scope and not the US wage, etc.

Incident With Daughter Could Get Ukranian Swim Coach Lifetime Ban:

Isn't she 18? Isn't he her father? I understand that doing it in public wasn't the smartest but what exactly is the big deal here? I mean I see high school kids father's and sometimes mothers act this way, trying to get their child to be a star athlete, etc. I think people should mind their own business. If this wasn't caught on tape would it have been an issue? I mean, Bobby Knight does this on a daily basis, its called motivation! If you win no beat down.. its really simple.

Teams We Hate In This Year's NCAA Tournament

If you remove all of the agriculture studies students from the Basketball team how many players would you have? Not enough to play... so what does that tell you about the school? I wish my university had classes to learn about Chickens.... and did you have the same question on every exam? Which came first the chicken or the egg? How many got that right? Sorry, my comments refer to the comments on CostaaNow from last night where Antoine Wright made some nice comments.

You mean we were supposed to elect people?

Pete Rose probably bet this kind of thing would happen.

Tim Hardaway, the yin to Jon Amaechi's yang:

The problem here isn't athletes, its Christianity and all their bigotry. I thougth Jesus's message was love all and forgive all.. didn't recall seeing an astric that said.. * except gays. When it boils down to it these athletes and people are only against it because they are taught that if you are gay you go to hell, until the church stops preaching hate this will be a forever argument.
