De La Hoya wins easy decision: "But fighters have been known to change their retirement plans as easily as they change gloves, and the only thing for certain is that De La Hoya will add many more millions to his already fat bank accounts before he finally hangs the gloves up for good. Mayweather has yet to sign for the rematch, though De La Hoya expressed confidence that the money would be too great for him to refuse."

Tyson vs Holyfield 3?

For some reason .... I just don't think it's a good idea.

Oh, I realize that I can be wildly entertaining. I just didn't like the Borat that much. THX-1138 I agree, did not love Borat. Makes me ill.

Boston Herald Should Name Its SpyGate Source

I suspect the consequences will be that the 'source' will never be trusted again, and the Herald will take a little more care with stories in future. Also, rcade is spot on with his experience that most 'sources' are in fact people closely involved who are primarily interested in getting their spin on things. Newspapers get sucked into these internal battles without even knowing, or worse, because they don't care. Thank You Owlhouse, I would like to continue with this though. The Newspapers are just as guilty and I think they don't care as long as the story is good. I have personal experience with this when I had a story about me go national news. I did some interviews with journalists and during the "proof reading" noticed that they were putting things in that were not said by me. When I asked about it, I was told that "it sounds better" So I happen to KNOW how these people are. They want the story to be "better" so more people will buy their product. Therefore in my mind they are knowingly getting involved (and not sucked in) to these internal battles and knowing that some info is false or exaggerated.

PGA Dresses Down John Daly for Golfing Topless

A little less disturbing than Rodman in a wedding gown, but disturbing at any rate.

Heisman Winner Tim Tebow Circumcises Kids

That is one of the charities I currently give to Thank You Joey Micheals. I am glad you posted tha link. We have a large amount of Sudanese people in my city, I have become good friends with some of them. I will certainly give to this charity. (My oldest son is Joseph Michael) And on the topic of the main story, I think it is a wonderful thing that we have people like Tim Tebow.

Harrison asked about shooting

but I guess that's the sensationalistic nature of the American news factory these days. How true, even I was a featured "sensational" story on ESPN. We don't know why the gun was even fired. So before people go making character judgements we should wait for the whole story, or at least a little more than we have thus far. Maybe.... it was a botched robbery attempt.

De La Hoya wins easy decision

I know, but I'm a lover of boxing. I have watched probaly every fight since before I was born. I know what you're saying though. Older fights you could watch and see the fierce fighter in the eye. Now it's simular to a musical production. I will continue to watch it though because there are those rare good fights still left.

De La Hoya wins easy decision

I think he needs to go ahead with his acting/singing career. He was a great fighter but I just don't think he has it in him anymore. He already had his time. I love Oscar but I hope he stops fighting. Boxing is becoming a joke. I mean really who do we have anymore?
