Fan Leaves Stands in Ugly Confrontation with David Beckham

According to FIFA rules national call up takes precedent over any club play. Most thought he was at the end of his career and would not be playing for England in 2010.

Well everyone was wrong. Beckham is passing up a lot of cash to get himself in position to represent his country.

I think that trumps playing for the Galaxy...

Big East Gets Three No. 1 Seeds in NCAA Tournament

What is the affect of having conference expansion? Marquette, Cincy, Depaul and others have joined power conferences. Lately the Mid-Majors havee't been as good IMO. BCS conferences have been gobbling up those guys who built up some of those less known schools.

Troy Polamalu could have been a baseball player

I would hate to be a pitcher who brushed him back. Imagine him charging the mound!

Bonds in the clear?

Here's a photo Bonds time line of historic homeruns starting in 1986. It didn't appear he got huge until somewhere between '98 and '01.

Interestingly enough, Babe Ruth started his career at 185lbs and ended it at 250lbs At one point near the middle he was a muscular 225.

Bonds in the clear?

Actually Bonds biggest gains were in the years between 1993 and'96. He gained about 40 pouneds when he started a weight training program and hired a nutrionist. Some have said his hat size changed, but that is not true according to the equipment manager of the Giants. Fact is that until recently weight training was considered unwise for baseball players.
