MLB Testing Advanced Replay Systems During Games

Re tennis, it's been greatly improved by replay. Arguments and controversies over line calls are nearly gone. There are many fewer point and game penalties. Now they just need a timer between points...

Mavs Comeback Stuns Heat in Game 2

At seven minutes left I turned the game off, piddled around, then decided I'd endure the 20+ point blowout.

Was a pleasant surprise...

Want to know what Peyton Manning is doing at the line of scrimmage?

80% of interceptions due to bad routes? Seems way high.

Cool read though.

NFL Football: 11 Minutes of Action, 60 Minutes of Commercials

I consider five or ten seconds before the snap to be part of the game--with the quarterback frantically calling plays and changes, the defense showing and pulling back blitzes, players in motion, etc. There's a lot going on.

NASCAR Driver Jimmie Johnson AP's Male Athlete of the Year

The car deserves the award more than the driver. At least with the horse they voted for the thing that provides all the power.

Belichick Call Questioned in Pats' Loss to Colts

"The Colts, to that point, had scored touchdowns on 4/14 drives, or 28.6% of the times they held the ball. Only one drive was less than two minutes in length. I understand that letting Peyton have the ball back is a scary thing, but statistically, they were more likely to stop him than not from 70 yards out."

You're assuming that all drives are equal. The previous drive before the 4th and 2 was the sub two minute drive, and it was obvious watching it that the Patriots' defense was gassed.

More like a monument to socialism/statism given that it's state owned.
