ESPN's Top Ten All Time Golf Shots

Pavin's four wood from 218 in a hurricane deserved to be rated higher.

Favre Asks For Release

Please go away Brett. You've been retiring for half a decade. I'm tired of reading about it. Get out of the newspaper, talk radio, ESPN and my computer. You're getting to be a bigger annoyance the Michael Jackson.

The Ten Best Individual Sports Rivalries

Although not there personally I saw all three Ali Frazier fights. They were classics. No problem with them being listed number one. But that fact that Bo versus Woody is not in the top ten is unbelievable. Being a Michigan fan and in attendance at the Big House during Bo versus Woody it's apparent that Men's Vogue knows nothing of football.

Bob Knight Resigns

902 reasons to like him. 902 reasons to hate him. That is Bob Knight's legacy.

More Bad Noose for Pro Golf

Tilhgman's choice of wording was marginal. Golfweek's choice of a cover is infuriating. Yet's see now. Taxes up. Gas prices up. Discretionary income down. One magazine subscription must go. That would be Golfweek.

Patriots are perfect 16-0

I saw Miami go undefeated. I saw New England go undefeated. Great accomplishments but only one team didn't cheat and film their opponents. One team deserves and asterisk the other stays flawless.

Strange Days

A fun list to read but the real story was how far off the experts were in establishing the pre-season national rankings. The initial picks were a disaster. I thinking several "experts" at rating college football teams is looking for a place to hide.

There were friendly score keepers in Joe DiMaggio's time. No, say it ain't so Joe. It's nice to know that the friendly score keepers of fifty years ago still exist today. An asterik? You've go to be kidding.

Lions Stun Bears With Record 4th Quarter

Da Bears changed quarterbacks. Maybe they should change their defense.

Lions Stun Bears With Record 4th Quarter

50+ years as a Lions fan? Really? If you know about Commander Cody you're fairly old but 50+ years as a Lions fan. Prove it. What was the name of the stadium 50 years ago and who was Yale Lary?

Tubby Fills A Gopher Hole...

I loved the comment "Kentucky is to basketball what Alabama is to football". You are so correct. Both are former powerhouses who have fallen to mediocrity.

"Moral Bracketology"

Best moment in sports. Colts Win Super Bowl? Why? If a live one more day or fifty more years I will never hear some talking head say Payton Manning and Tony Dungy can't win the big game. Worst moment in sports. A tough one but two come to mind. I'm old enough to remember when TV cut aware from an NFL game to telecast the movie Heidi. Also, I actually saw Chris Berman from ESPN at a golf Pro/Am. He had a horrible golf swing and even worse the golf attire he had on made him look like a physical wreck. He has a huge gut and no butt. Now that is a real visual nightmare. This is a man who should never play golf when there is a chance that it will be televised. My top four seeds. Can't think of anyone real deserving at this point. Maybe UCLA. The rest will depend on how teams do in their conference tournament.

Brett Favre Coming Back For 17th Season

How sad it will be watching a Super Bowl MVP's skills deteriorate for another season.

NFL Hall of Fame class of 2007 includes Michael Irvin, Thurman Thomas

This has to be the bottom of the barrel for the NFL. First, they threatened with a lawsuit a Baptist Church in Indianapolis if they have a Super Bowl party and show the game on a TV screen bigger that fifty-five inches. Second, they have a crack head elected into their Hall of Fame. This weekend has to be a PR nightmare for anyone affiliated with the NFL.
