Barry Bonds signs with Yankees!

Man, when i read that headline, i called my boss before I read the article since we're both baseball nuts here in Houston. After I got off the phone, I opened the article and realised i had been spoofed. Obiviously, i had to call my boss back and changed my story. Nice one, Grum!!

Carl Edwards Heavily Penalized For Cheating, But Doesn't Have To Forfeit Vegas Win.

Would have loved to be there when Edwards got the news. He acts like the All-American, aww shucks kind of guy when things are going his way but whines like a girlyman when it doesn't. Was glad to see Robbie Gordon get a brake from Nascar, tho.

A Crushing Blow to Yao Ming and the Rockets

There's no way the Rockets can overcome this. If they make it to the playoffs, they'll never make it past the first round. They have a grueling schedule coming up in March. You should of heard the local sports radio chatter here in Houston. I thought I was listening to someone's funeral on Sports Radio 610 AM

The Epic of Craig Biggio

I watched Biggio from his rookie year until he retired in 2007. Used to go to the Dome before Minute Maid was built. The guy was fun to watch and he'll be missed by the people in Houston. Thanks Craig, it was a joy to watch ya.

Blockbuster: Tigers agree to aquire Cabrera, Willis from Marlins

Blockbuster trade? I dunno. Cabrera, no doubt he's awesome. But Willis went 10-15 with a 5.17 ERA. But then moving to beautiful Detroit Michigan (input sarcasm), might be what Dontrelle needs.
