Report: Dodgers hire Torre as manager; Little fired : It seems pretty certain now that it is true. Don Mattingly, Tony Pena, Rob Thomson and Kevin Long will be coaches. The 2008 Los Angeles Dodgers look a whole more interesting now than they did this morning.

A-Rod Opts Out of Contract : He has taken off th pinstripes. I think he did this now to divorce himself from the managerial decision coming tomorrow. I also think that he knows something about Posada, Rivera, and Pettitte that others don't. Where's he going: nobody knows.

Where have you gone Darius Miles?

Maybe the Clips should bring him back. After all, things can't get worse.

Brett Favre Retires

Rodgers is NOT the answer, they must draft the next Favre or acquire. They must do it now, or they could go 0-16.

The Buck Stops Here

Still can't believe he rooted for the Yanks in the 2006 playoffs (divison series), apathetic about the Redbirds. Jack was spinning in his grave.

If it's not one thing, it's another.

Amazing, the man last pitched in the World Series, which they one. Talking about going out a champ. Great. The arm should force him to stay like that in the history books, despite any resul of the contract fight.

Giants Win Superbowl!

excellent game, go g men. if they cheated, if they just did not deserve it, it is over, their dynasty, their season, their bid for perfection. Don Shula, sleep well tonight, God knows what amazing thing you did, and that is why the anvil fell on NE tonight. Sleep well, my friend.

Mets Get Santana

They still do have missing pieces, but I honestly believe he is enough for a pennant. They will win the NL East. Their only true obstacle is the Dodgers. The greatest (and probably impossible) obstacle to overcome for both is the Tigers. Think about it. Bad move for the Twins. Good move for the Mets, best moe for Santana, balls fly at the Dome, Citi Field is the opposite. It will probably help him put up bigger numbers. Oh well, let's see.

Adolf Hitler, Cowboys Fan

What won't people lay off this man. I have not lived inD allas, but I have visited the place. This man, Romo, deserves to have a sexually active life like other people. Heck, priests and bishops are sexually active these days, this is not Bear Bryant and waterboarding for one less push up. This is not Lombardi and effectively risking your life to play. This is 2008, not 1958 or 1968. I pulled for the Boys, but it is not the end of the world that they lost, it will be if the G Men win it all, even though that will make Shula commit suicide to end it for all, out of joy. I think we should let Romo sleep with Jessica Simpson, mind out own business, and sit in front of the TV on Sunday (if one is not attending or Church or some other activity on routine), and rrot for or against Romo and his gang.

The mighty hath fallen:

Right now, there are lots of people who purchased tickets for the men's final that are cursing the world. Expected: Nadal vs Federer Actual: Djokovic vs Tsonga That would be like wanting a Patriots vs Cowboys final and getting Jacksonville vs Seattle. I am calling Djokovic to win just because of common sense, like Sharapova tonight, even though Ivanovic is better on paper (and that is truth, Sharapova being more deserving is the other side of the coin). However, truth is that Nadal was imploded in a spectacular manner, Federer actually did get to kick and fight. However, Nadal was swept away like cremains. The margin of victory tells you Tsonga will win, but Djokovic is a very high seed, and he a lot of more experience, Tsonga's bio is just dismantling Nadal. However, if you are to look at margin of victory (and ignore whose better on paper or more deserving because of experience and seed), Tsonga would be the favorite in that category (somewhat like Ivanovic tonight, though she and Maria are similar players, and people have much higher expectations of Ivanovic and not Tsonga).

Tom Brady Wearing Walking Cast

Matt Cassel slowly rises from his chair. "I knew this day would come. I have spent many nights preparing for such a scenario, and many days waiting.... And now that it is here - I know I'm ready." (Quickly grabs pre-packed bag of essential items, fake passport and one-way ticket to Bora Bora) I dunno if Brady has gout or what, but he will take a few snaps against the G men and then go out. As for Cassel, rotf, from my hometown, I think he will go to the Dinka Tribe or Rio, somewhere extremely crowded or unable to reach. The Pats are suddenly heavy underdogs. If they win it, Cassel will win it, and he will rise like no other.

Rams owner dies after lengthy illness

I hope they will move back. They were abused because of the Raiders. They are now gone.

Rams owner dies after lengthy illness

May she rest in peace, despite disagreements over the relocation. I do not want to sound wierd, but what is the future of the franchise without Frontiere? is it in STL? Is it in Ed Jones Dome, if in the Gateway City?

Lambeau's changing landscape

Speaking of the area surrounding a football stadium, I recall the Los Angeles Coliseum, in Jefferson Park, South Central Los Angeles. My parents went to Rams games in the late 70's, and I went to Raiders games in the early 90's, and I go to USC games now (sometimes with my parents), but the area surrounding it seems to never change. It is so inviting, it seems to be telling you to come, that all people are brothers once inside that magical stadium.

How Do You Get to 16 - 0?

The same way the Dolphins got to perfection. You need a genius for a coach (Belichick = Shula).

Nevermore! Ravens Fire Brian Billick

Martz if they desire to lose and get high draft picks, if they want to win, well, they should prepare to wait for a few months, unless they want John Fox.

Patriots are perfect 16-0

They join the 85 Bears and 72 Dolphins as unforgettable teams, if they win it all. However, the 1996 Chicago Bulls were the best team in pro sports history. However, that record is being scrutinized now as the Celtics roll.
