Accept the cash...just don't deliver: It is ok for Nigerian football referee's to accept bribes, it isn't ok for them to actually execute the bribe. Hmmm, is that good advice?

Reds show true color...: We seem to have so many negative things to discuss. Here is another positive story of athletes, people really, showing up and helping out in a time of need.

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

Just to clarify, if I live in Dallas, I do not get Twins games, and I can not get them on Sling either. The Sling only forwards my home signal to me over a broadband connection. So, if I'm on the road, it forwards my Dallas connection to me...same crappy Ranger games. Install one at your Mom's (or someone you know) house in Minneapolis...then you can get the local games in Dallas or wherever. And no...not even that is illegal. What TV station...or advertiser wouldn't want more people watching?

Zidane to bite Big Apple?

Why would Zidane playing in the MLS be bad for the league? MLS needs exposure and 'stars' so some real money starts coming into the league. If MLS hopes to be anything more than a minor league or even a 'retirement castle' as Weedy describes it this they need to do something because that league might as well not exist at this point. Like it or not bringing in Becks and Zidane puts the league in the news. None of the current players are doing that. Now...remember NASL? I used to love going to see the San Diego Sockers when I was a kid. Remember how dominate the Sockers were in the MISL of the '80's? Sure you don't! Of course...bringing in Pele didn't save that league...nor did turning into an indoor league. Get a satelite and watch the Euros...that is where the action is.

Roddick and Federer to meet in finals

LET'S GO RODDICK! (Federer is incredible but I would like to see someone compete with the guy)

Abolish the NCAA

Just to add to the rediculousness of the Ray Ray McElrathbey story, his little brother may not even recieve rides to and from his school with coaches wives (whose kids attend the same school) because that qualifies as an 'extra benefit' for Ray Ray. The NCAA is a mess.

Bill Walton flies coach

I have been on the same SWA flight with Bill a couple of times...he does get on during the pre-board process.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Says you... Indeed. I realized right after I posted that someone would jump on my sweeping generalization of journalists. The sad fact is that 'newsertainment' has broken my trust in the media. I read every story with a pile of salt these days.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Isn't the media supposed to report the whole story objectively? I fell out of my chair laughing at this one. The media stopped reporting objectively a long time ago. Every story is slanted these days.

Homer, Homer, Homer, Homer, Homer, Homer

Luckily, nobody in the left field seats was seriously injured. Funny!

Mitchell to head steroid investigation

"I think baseball has to recapture the moral high ground."-Vincent With all due respect Mr. Vincent, there is not moral high ground to recapture. MLB looked the other way...investigate the league as well as the players. Everyone involved in baseball during the late 90's is complicit in the steroid scandal.

Goodbye Paul.

Way to leave on top, Paul. Let's hope the next guy can keep it going.

Wily Mo Pena traded to BoSox for Bronson Arroyo, Cash

Who's going to wear our white-trash-I'm-not-Kid-Rock cornrows now? Who, I ask you? LOL, you beat me to it. I wonder how those 'rows are going to play in Cincy.

Leiter calls it quits

I don't know if I would classify Leiter as an all time big game pitcher. He had his moments to be sure but I think the real 'Leiter Lesson' is that if you can throw 80+mile an hour strikes left handed you can play for a long time and make big bucks.

T.O. in Big D

P.P.S. It's "Cowboys" or "boys," not "Cowboy's" or "boy's." Unless you're talking about one cowboy. Thanks for the clarification. To the rest of us out here...we prefer....Cowdorks...or just dorks. TO going to the 'dorks is the best thing that could happen. He'll ruin that team like he has all the others he has been on.

T.O. in Big D

Bill Parcells won't take any bullshit from nobody. You would think that he is on the short list of coaches that can control TO. But remember, TO wanted to play in Philly and he wanted to play with Donovan. You think he gave Garcia and MacNabb a hard time? Bledsoe is going to take a verbal beating from TO by week 4. Downhill from there.
