Questionable Call

Of course all this happens when I decide to root for the Chargers. I am truly cursed.

Could you root for the Chargers again when they play the Broncos next time? And how about the Raiders? Could you root for them as well when they next play the Broncos? It would be appreciated!

8 OTs fail to decide hockey final.

Man, I would have LOVED to see that game! No mention of how the goalies did - probably ended up as one big black and blue mark!

Belichick and Pioli speak out.

Packer fans, it was your chosen deity Vince Lombardi who said " if you aint cheetin', you aint tryin.'" Uhhh, Vince wasn't the one who coined this phrase. It was someone who came a bit later, and from a different sport - Lary Sorensen.

Colorado wouldn't mind having Peter the Great back.

Smart money is on the Flyers landing him. I don't know about that. The Avs have cap money to spare, Forsberg still has a condo in Colorado, and Sakic can be pretty convincing at times...

Karma is the key for Rockies play-in to playoffs

As a Rox fan, it thrills me to see this. This is only the second post-season showing for Colorado (the first being a wild card slot in the 1995 strike-shortened season, which I'm not sure really counts!). They were beaten by Atlanta in that one (in 4 games) - I'm cautiously optimistic that they will do a little better this year.

When Mascots Attack: Oregon Duck Assaults Houston Cougar

The Hawk mascot has to keep flapping its wings during the entire game (or it loses its scholarship). Are you kidding about this? For real? What the!!??!! Apparently it is true. Here's '5 questions' for the mascot himself.

Broken Faces

Pretty cool. Almost gladiator-esque in nature. Reminds me of why I would rather watch Rugby than play it - the old body probably couldn't take the abuse!

MLB Demands Toothpaste Be Put Back in Tubes, Andy Griffith Re-runs*

It is in Iowa (where I currently reside), and it is 6 teams - here's a blackout map for anyone interested. The blacked out teams don't matter much to me (though I wouldn't mind seeing a Cubbies or Cards game once in a while) as I'm a Rockies fan. With the way the Rocks play (pretty much every year!), I'm not sure if it would bother me that much if they were blacked out!

Notre Dame makes history

the media goofs will figure out that a Gold Helmet Hey, the University of Colorado has that! Why shouldn't they get the same treatment?! and a PAST TRADITION of excellance (sic) Oh, yeah, I guess there is THAT. Ummm, never mind. (I am a CU alum, btw)

Suspensions Handed Out

Ying Yang - it was just a little levity. Would it have been better if I said The Pacers? Or maybe the Lakers? (even though Shaq isn't with the Lakers anymore.) Or (insert your favorite brawling team of the month here)

Suspensions Handed Out

It seems Carmelo was somewhat regretful of his actions. I agree with you, ajaffe. Let's suspend the whole Knicks team along with some Pistons and a few other players to be named at a later date.
