Should SportsFilter Think of the Children?

the last time I watched a PG-13 there was more swearing than on this site.

The Real Cost of the Ball Game

He just doesn't know where to watch a game...The Angels have $3 tickets and sitting in the boxes (10 rows from the field down the first baseline) can be as low as $33. Parking is only $8 (which I thought was a lot until I went to the Dodger's game)...yeah food is expensive but who goes to the game and buys food? We bring our own munchies and drinks ( have to buy their beer) so we can get the whole family into a game for about $32 cheaper than a movie

Source: Caster Semenya is a Hermaphrodite

I have not read the answer to this question -- does having 3 times the "normal" level of testosterone give her an advantage?

ESPN: Favre Reaches Deal to Join Vikings

I like it better than the Herschel Walker trade... I don't think that the Vikings are any worse off.

CFL Pick 'Em, Final Post-Season Standings

Well, obviously I am the cousin who shows up and knows absolutely nothing about the gathering, tries to participate and manages to spectacularly not get it right. Thank you for the accolades and for allowing me to come to your party. It was fun and I am glad that I came. Thanks Dr. J for hosting the party and for the lovely awards; I will be waiting by the mailbox for the arrival of my 3 spectacularly expensive and gaudy trophies -- 2 Constanzas and 1 for getting 2 Constanzas.

Thanks Dr. J. Maybe next year, I can actually watch a game (or at least a highlight) and do better. Good job to all of you. Great job Tommy.

CFL Pick 'Em, Week 19

Am I eligible for the "award" since I missed two weeks of picking (not that it would have added many points but I don't want to take anyone's trophy if I am not eligible)

I missed last week because I was in the wilds of Oceanside (okay just because there was a shopping center across the street it doesn't mean it wasn't roughing it. There was no wifi).

Dodgers win their first playoff series in 20 years.

Coming back to win game 3 on the road after losing 2 at home takes a lot of character and Chutzpah. It seems that the Cubs ran out of both.
