Yu Darvish May Need Tommy John Surgery

Sprained? Just sprained?

I don't understand how a sprain is already cause for the Tommy John discussion.

"Sprain" means "torn ligament". The severity is what determines how bad it is. In Darvish's case, he has a Level 2 sprain. Given how it's now a recurring injury, they're considering Tommy John surgery.

Premier League season starts Saturday

What's the fantasy league code? 55086 was not it and I had to sign up for a new account over there after they seem to have deleted my previous account.

Spurs Kick Harry Redknapp

I'm a Spurs fan and like Harry, but he was fired for three reasons:

1. Stumping for the England gig since before Capello got stepped down. (He's always ready to let it be known to anyone who asked that he would take the job in a heartbeat if it was offered.) 2. Dropped a 10pt lead over Arsenal in the table and losing a certain CL spot with an awful run of form late in the season. 3. Publicly demanding in the press for a contract extension.

#3 was the final straw, but #1 was the biggest turn off. He always answered that question hypothetically, saying how great of an honor it would be if he was asked but was happy at WHL blah blah blah. Nobody was fooled to think he wasn't just paying lip-service for the job. He's a good manager and he did an amazing job with this squad but if they kept him around he'd be a huge distraction until his contract issue was resolved. And make no mistake, he was never going to be quiet in the media while that was being hashed out, so you can be sure the club's form would suffer as a result.

Tiger Woods Loses No. 1 Ranking

He's good, but never winning a Major doesn't really make him the de facto number one for a lot of people.

Stanley Cup Finals Pickem 2010

Having family visiting from America and dragging me on a road trip to France (yeah, it sounds better than it is) had me miss my finals picks. Oh well. I feel confident with my winner, sure that my games won't hit and probable about my Conn Smythe winner, which leads me to believe I won't leap into first, but it was fun to play when I was able to get picks in on time.

Next time, no family staying for 16 days in our 1 bedroom apartment.

2010 NHL Playoff Pickem Round 3

Shit, I was away this weekend (but not with Spitztengle) and didn't get picks in.

Habs in 6

If they count, great. If not, that's okay, too.

Golfer's honorable loss.

While Whybark may have thought he was doing something sportsman-like, in reality he just said "I'm better than you so I'm going to give you this so you don't feel bad." Completely a self-aggrandizing dick move.

Also, there's not a single quote from the "winner" about the gesture. That pretty much sums it up for me about how he felt about it.
