The Hoser's NFL Picks, 2008 Week Nine

"We were considering sending an email to Terrell Owens suggesting if he wasn't handling enough balls, he could try his own in the shower. But given the number of passes he drops over the middle, we're not sure he has any."

You almost made me ruin my moniter with that one lol. But you better be careful.....I hear Pac-Man has nothing to do for a few weeks and we all know how sensitive TO can be.

Report: Brady's Injury Torn ACL

The thing that gets me about this is that Randy Moss came out and said that the hit was a cheap shot and a dirty play. Now I might not a ref but from what I seen the o-lineman pushed the blitzing safty to the groung because he was gonna beat him with speed,which is what most o-lineman are taught to do,it just happened that when the safty hit the ground his momentum carried him into Brady's lower leg(not his knee)and Brady got twisted up.

While I do not like the Pats it is a shame to see such a good player put on the shelf with such a devastating injury,but I think it reminds us all that no matter how good you are in sports that luck (both good and bad)does play a role.

Fan Ejected From Yankee Stadium For Bathroom Break During 'God Bless America'

A wise man once said "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both."

Seems we have lost commen sense as well.

Next thing you know they will try to stop you from getting a beer during the 7th inning stretch.

Let's Play the Feud!

I'm really starting to think that Joe does this kind of stuff just to keep his name out there because theres no way he can compare to Mr. Cub in all around play or in just being humble. I dont remember him complaining when he was part of "The Big Red Machine" and its not Banks or Sandbergs fault that he isnt even remembered as the second or third best player on his team. Both Banks and Sandberg carried that franchise and Joe had the benifit of playing with some of the best players around. That being said I'm need to go cut my hands off now for defending Cubs players while being a Sox fan.

George Carlin: (Late) Sports Authority

He has to be my all time favorite comic and when i read the news i couldnt understand how it was possible he was gone. I can say that i dont remember a show I have seen where you didnt get your moneys worth. I know this a sports forum but to limit his work to just that would be a crime. He was truly a comic genius and will be deeply missed. Tnip touched on it earlier, I'm sure he is with Pesci.....Because remember....Pesci gets resaults. :)

Pitcher really don't like an ump? Have your catcher duck and hit him in the face!

To me this just sounds like a pitcher and catcher that were tired of a small strike zone trying to get even. Not saying it was right but in the end its nothing compared to the pithcer who beaned the kid in the on deck circle because he thought the kid was tryin to steal signs.

Anyone else think that the owners might be right wanting a rookie salary cap?

Sacks, Lies and Videotape.

Anyone remember the Raiders old motto "If you aint cheatin you aint tryin"? While I dont think this goes for all of sports I do think that if a way to better your game is out there that isnt within the rules some people will use it.Not saying its right but it does and will continue to happen as long as there is a first place and a last place.

NFL Owners Vote Unanimously to End Collective Bargaining Agreement

I cant see how the owners would want to let the players get a taste of a no cap season. Every agent must be drooling like a madman at the thought of this. If there's no new CBA in place before 2010 you can be sure there will be a lockout in 2011. I just hope this doesnt turn the NFL into what the NHL was a few years ago.

If you can't beat 'em, cheat 'em.

I dont know if I would say that the screen was "clean" but it was legal.Horry is to smart of a player to have this happen by accident. When this is all said and done this play may be what does the Spurs in, because if the Hornets decide to play a more physical game now they have the younger legs and i'm not sure if the Spurs can continue to play this many games at this tempo. Dont get me wrong, the Spurs are still the favorite to alot of people but you have to wonder what toll this seris has taken.

The Best Homerun Story Ever

You know...as more and more kids see players with big money contracts and huge endorsements its nice to see that the "spirit of the game" still has a place in it all.

Jays release Frank Thomas:

As a long time White Sox fan I knew this was coming after the comments he made a few days ago. He has never been one to hold his tounge and it has hurt him more times than it has helped. That being said i still think that he is one of the best hitters that I have ever seen and when Ted Williams says that you have one of the purest swings he has seen that means something. To bad he angered so many of the Chicago writers that will one day help determine his Hall of Fame future.

Football ref crew mistake may cost $4.5 million

It's been a long time since I've been able to say this ,but it's time for Ohio State to figure out that they are not the only team with talent. The Big Ten has finally become what people thought it was. And to gobucks,it's not like Ohio State got beat by Eastern Illinois, the Illini have won a few this year.

The dumbest football fines ever!

Some good memories here. I do remember that game jojo, funniest part of that whole thing was one of the announcers asked the other "Can you tell if his head is still in there" to which he answered "I can't tell, I dont see it but if it is he (Turley) needs to try out for the discus event."
