You Can't Stop Deadspin; You Can Only Hope to Contain It

I wonder if Deadspin writers consider taking your kids to church to be on par with Nazi indoctrination, like SportsFilter's Frazer? Maybe I'd like it better over there. Thanks for the heads up.

Sticking it to Sidney

I think the Pens should go out and get a thug, just as protection. I know it means they have to free up a roster spot, but they have other young stars besides Crosby and other teams need to know there will be a price to pay if they want to take the low road. I agree with the others, nice column Frazer.

Peyton Manning's Monkey Has Died

I don't think they look at the entire playoff run when choosing the Super Bowl MVP (7 INTs). If they do, though, he deserved it for the second half of the Patriots game alone. As for the Bears defense, yes they were on the field entirely too long, but why were the safeties practically playing prevent the entire game. They gave the Colts the middle of the field, as evidenced by the performance of the RBs. If it was out of respect of Manning's arm, then he deserves the MVP for that reason as well.

Paraglider attacked by eagles.

Apparently the dude was unaware of the International Airspace restrictions. Hey, a bird's got to defend his airspace.

Buffalo Bills: Africa's Four-Time Super Bowl Champs

Alright, some kid in Africa has a Carolina Panthers Super Bowl Champion t-shirt on his back! I feel so much better now.

Brett Favre Coming Back For 17th Season

I'm a Panthers fan, so I'm used to watching a quarterback throw off his back foot into double coverage, but unlike my quarterback, Favre was once a great deal better. I know it's hard for these great athletes to hang them up, but when it's time, it's time.

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

I would have liked to see Art Monk in there. I agree with wingnut on Irvin. The place for an ethics lesson isn't on the Hall of Fame vote.

Giants hopes fans and team will Bonds together.

I've never hoped for a player on any team to suffer an injury, especially a career ending one. Here's hoping one or both of Bonds' gimpy knees finally blow short of 756.

Ted Johnson's on the Injured List Years After Retirement

I can only feel sorry for Ted Johnson. I don't blaim Belichick or the trainers, though. If a man knows he's hurt, it's his choice whether he goes back in. Yes, the coach can get pissed, even threaten him with his job, but he can't make him play. That being said, I really feel for Johnson and the quality of the remainder of his life. I really like the idea of the partially guaranteed contracts.

NFL Won't Let Church Show Game

wfrazerjr, damn, I thought I was bitter toward organized religion. You make me look like a deacon. What would you have parents of small children do on Sunday mornings when they wish to attend church. Find a babysitter early on a Sunday morning so that the kids aren't getting brainwashed? Ever think they take the kids because the church provides free daycare while they worship? Ever think that maybe when the child becomes old enough the parents will respect his/her choice about whether or not to attend church? Careful, your personal issues are showing.

ACC admits to 'timing error' in final seconds in Duke win over Clemson.

As I recall, UNC under Dean Smith got more than their fair share of calls. The same controversy that follows Coach K used to follow Smith. Just like in the NBA, the big names get the calls. It's unfortunate but the way it is.

Champions League on ice?

True. Every NHL team has Europeans on it. It wouldn't be unlikely for that "who do I play for" situation to come about. Then, if the NHL team loses a guy, it's not the same team that won the cup.

Long-shot Serena Williams annihilates #1 Maria Sharapova to win Australian Open.

I agree with Black Hand. She even gave the tennis world a much needed shot in the arm with a little smack talk the other day when she said when she's playing her best, there's no one on the women's tour who can beat her. She obviously speaks the truth.

ACC admits to 'timing error' in final seconds in Duke win over Clemson.

Actually, the more ironic thing is that after winning, the Duke players tackled one another and rolled around on the floor just like Virginia Tech did when they beat Duke. That was when Coach K told some of the Tech players they were too classy and intelligent to behave in that manner. And despite my sign in name, I'm not a fan of any ACC school. I went to UNC Charlotte (undefeated in football yet again in 2006).
