Andre The Giant: With a rowdy New York crowd behind him, giving him the undeniable home court advantage, Andre Agassi pulls off another victory, this time one of the more captivating matches in recent history. If the ailing Agassi can knock of the 112th-ranked B. Becker from Germany, there is the potential for an All-American match, Agassi v. Roddick.

It's All About The Benjamins Baby: Although he is apparently the savior of New Orleans, both as a football player and figurehead, Reggie Bush is holding out. Not only that, but he and his agent are threatening to stay sidelined for the year and re-enter the draft next season.

Ready for a shocker?

I agree with BornIcon. LT is hands down the NFL player of the year. But the MVP should be exactly what it says... the most valuable player. The Chargers are still a playoff caliber team without the monster season that LT had. However, without the leadership and excellent play that the Saints got out of Brees this season, the Saints would not be in the position that they are now, in the playoffs with a first round bye.

Boise State Wins Fiesta in Unforgettable Fashion

In my defense I did say that that doesn't mean that they would beat them. I just said it shows that they would possibly have a chance and so they deserve a shot.

Boise State Wins Fiesta in Unforgettable Fashion

This game proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the BCS system is flawed and that a playoff system should be implemented in college football. Oklahoma is a team that, if not for some horrible breaks from officials at Oregon, would possibly be playing in the national championship. Also, to anyone who is saying that Boise State couldn't keep pace with the so-called elite NCAA football programs such as Michigan or USC let's look at this years football season. Oregon State defeats USC who thoroughly rips Michigan a new one in the Rose Bowl. Boise State defeated OSU by a score of 42-14 if I recall correctly. Sure, this doesn't mean for sure that they would win in a head-to-head matchup against these "elite" teams, but it does show that they have a damn good shot, one that they deserve. All the BCS is is politics. But congrats to Boise State on the huge victory, and to Ian Johnson.

Florida Will Face Ohio State in BCS Championship Game

Good point with Wisconsin and Auburn. It's a shame that neither team could make it with only two teams from each conference being able to make the BCS (SEC: Florida, LSU Big Ten: Ohio State, Michigan). Here's to hoping for a playoff system or some other major overhaul soon.

Mario Williams is no Sam Bowie

Personally, I believe that Bush is a big part of the Saints success. No matter how poorly he is preforming, everyone still respects him because they all know that he can break a big play. This is opening up the rest of the Saint's offense to play like they have this year (of course the the addition of Drew Brees and the surprise that is Marques Colston has helped too).

Roddick and Federer to meet in finals

Federer takes it. But it's good to see Roddick back on top of his game.

Madden 2007

I don't think they take it too seriously. It really is a pride thing. How many people who create themselves in Madden actually give themselves rating that are true to life? Just because someone runs a seven second 40, that doesn't mean they are gonna give themselves a 45 for speed. At lest thats how i view it. I know when I create myself, I like to stack my stats as much as I can, even if it does cost a couple million dollars more.

Beasts of the East.

I would either go AFC North, (Bengals Steelers, and Ravens) or AFC West (Oakland, Denver, San Diego, and KC) as the strongest overall divisions. I don't know what you are talking about. In the AFC North, the ravens will be better, but they still wont be great, and everyone will beat up on the Browns, who you failed to even mention, although i can't blame you if you are trying to make a case for that division being the best in football. It's going to be a battle between the Bengals and Steelers again, just like last year. In the AFC West, KC is not going to be as good as people are expecting them to be. They lost a key part of their line in Willie Roaf, and the rest of the line is getting old too. Don't expect too much out of Larry Johnson or anyone else on the team this year. Oakland had that fall from grace after the Super Bowl a few years back, and since then they have just become a dumpng ground for players past their prime. Just like the AFC North, this will be a two team battle between SD and Denver. NFC East is by far the strongest division in the NFL. As long as things don't implode (which they well could, I am not going to deny that), look for these teams to dominate.

Battle of the Titans

It does seem like something is missing, but from other reports I have seen, including ESPN, the reports have all said the same exact thing.

France stop the samba.

I think I might be France's biggest fan now. Anything to stop that smug git C Ronaldo from winning another game. Amen to that. I think that if I see one more dive from Ronaldo (or any other player from Portugal) I may well throw up. Everyone acts, but they disgrace the game taking it to a whole new level. Grabing your face when you got hit in the neck? Come on. I do think Germany is probably gonna take all home now, and I never thought I would say this but I hope France wins, at least against Portugal.

Oregon State wins their first College World Series title

And so it begins... Maybe more baseball teams from the North will be able to field good teams now and give the Southern teams a run for their money in the good old American pasttime..

Beckham spills guts for England;

I'll second that opinion riffola. The refs have been pulling out way too many yellow cards in this World Cup. Let the boys play soccer. I guess at least they are making bad calls consistently.

No World Cup love for Team USA

Ghana= great game. Best of luck to them against Brazil. USA= Horrible. They completely lacked any heart out there today. Even with their goal they still looked like a shell of the team that played against Italy. Even with the bad ref, they have no one to blame but themselves (and Bruce Arena, who in my opinion at this point needs to be completely run out of US soccer. His coaching at this World Cup was probably some fo the worst coaching, if you call sitting there with your hands behind your head coaching, I have ever seen).

Brian McBride's 42nd Goal Lifts U.S. over Ghana, 110-109

Fantastic generalization there. Every American is close-minded and wants their sports to be high scoring. You couldn't have said it any better. All Americans suck! Ha. Bad wording on my part. I was trying to refer to just that certain group(ie. the ones that like to piss on all the soccer posts), but I guess I did kind of word that like all Americans suck.

Brian McBride's 42nd Goal Lifts U.S. over Ghana, 110-109

You, Mr. Robert Scherer from Montgomery, Ohio are an idiot. Although you won't ever read this I'm sure becuase you are just another close minded American who couldn't name a soccer player if his life depended on it. I don't see why people here think that all sports have to be high scoring or make complete sense. People have the same complaints about hockey. SO let's fix whats wrong with soccer. Kicking a ball into a gigantic net with no goalie in it would make for one hell of a sport. We should probably just try to do away with offsides, yellowcards and red cards while we are at it too. I honestly belive that the lack of scoring in many matches makes it more exciting everytime one team even gets close to the net. Who gives a damn in basketball if the team gets close to the net they are supposed to score in? Probably not very many folks.
