Chargers flushed, Peyton vs. Brady again : Plus, LT got in a fight at the end of the tight game, it apparently had something to do with Shawne Merriman.

Ex-baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn Dies

BTW, he died in Ponte Vedra BEach in Jaxville. That is where Sawgrass, my fav course, is.

Ex-baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn Dies

NHL fans see Bettman as the village idiot. As for me, it was a guy in high school who banged his head into a brick wall over an ex girlfriend.

Ex-baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn Dies

RIP Bowie. Ueberroth, a politician, succeeded him, and Bat Giammatti succeeded him to oust Charlie Hustle. After that, Fay came, certainly a poor choice, who was easily deposed of by Selig, and probably one of the most controversial heads of a pro league all time took the helm. Selig is undoubtedly the most controversial head dog to head the MLB ever til now, and possibly forever, if the Bonds thing does not goi away, and it certainly seems like it is going nowhere. If Bonds were to hit 756 in 2008, Selig would gamble like Charlie, because the one thing he wanted and thought would never happen, a one year delay of his nightmare, had happend.

Teams We Hate In This Year's NCAA Tournament

It is not only Duke. When you see so many favorites winning, there has got to be a problem. That means NIT teams got seeds 9-16, and probably all or most 1 and 2 seed NIT teasm should be in the Dance.

When Naming Rights Become Naming Wrongs

Staples HQ is in Boston, but Staples Center is here in L.A. People go there love it, and see it as the best arena in North America. Nobody cares. However, it is not a good thing, one can say that, for those actually know. Honda Center in Anaheim is named after a Japanese company. When the Nets move to Brooklyn, their arena will be called the Barclays Center, even though the back is in green ole England. Many fans care, but again, most could care less, and many do not even know.

Barbaro Euthanized

We just lost a Triple Crown winner that never was, a modern day Seabiscuit. A legend like Seattle Slew, Secretariat, or Affirmed. RIP Barbaro.

Colts kick past Ravens

I say Saints next week. Pats have not gone dry for two years. Plus, in 2003, the Pats beat an NFC South team in CAR, and won the next Bowl in Florida the next year. Brady's great on turf, at RCA. I say NE def. NO in XLI. Ya Reggie's great, but HOF QB's beat rookie HOF RB's any day of the week.

Davids to bank it like Beckham?

You know how they'll gather $250 million. Sports Authority and Sport Chalet stores here in LA will be chocked full of people trying to buy jerseys.

Barbaro Suffers Significant Setback.

He's doing better.

Ripken, check. Gwynn, check. McGwire, not so much.

Rose and Shoeless Joe. Big Mac and Bonds tomorrow. I hope I'm wrong.

Ownership group buys DC United for $33 million.

Sticking with MLS, I wonder where the Wizards will land. It seems like anywhere.
