49ers Let Cardinals Off the Hook: Tony Kornheiser was right -- the 49ers snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory must have been scripted -- or that's just what bad teams always do. The 49ers coaching staff and players totally mismanaged the end of the game. With no timeouts and less than 20 seconds, you keeping throwing -- or spiking -- the ball until the last play ... then maybe you run.

Island Breeze: The dominance of Caribbean (Jamaican) Sprinters: Coming from a Caribbean person, I wish there were more stories like this that highlight that, apart from the American and Jamaican sprinters,almost everyone else in the final fields for the men and women 100m and 200m finals were also Caribbean runners (Netherlands Antilles, Cayman Islands, St. Kitts, Bahamas, Trindad & Tobago, etc)

Football: Swazi women's team win 33-0

No comments? I know its soccer, but this is crazy! It's hard to score 33 goals if no one is on the field.

Giants' Receiver Burress Shoots Leg in Gun Accident

Plaxico is an idiot of the highest order -- the Giants have been too loyal to him. Time to wave him bye-bye.

49ers Let Cardinals Off the Hook

"...Finally, it was only third down, theoretically allowing for the 49ers to again spike the ball and call a different play on fourth down." - from the ESPN story posted by brainoftrain.

Of course I'm not buying it! However, that is admittedly a tough spot for a new head coach and his talented-but-underperforming offensive coordinator.

Reliant Stadium severely damaged by Hurricane Ike.

Maybe Howard invoking Christ's message was unfortunate fodder for Jews or others sensitive to Christianity. But Howard's point is well taken. How about every descendant of slaves in the US not having to pay taxes because the US government enabled slavery, and for a time, Jim Crow laws and segregation? Jews have a right to still be jaded by certain ties, but as a whole, I hope that level-headed people and organizations not make decisions solely based on surface knowledge.

I could beat Michael Phelps

I can't believe you guys get worked up over what Ocho Cinco says. Just laugh at what he says and keep going. What is unfortunate is if some people in the "inner city" or with no opportunities take Chad seriously and use his words as excuses.

I for one think that Phelps is even more great because he has the opportunities, is expected to win, AND STILL WINS, even with all that pressure! Now that's clutch. He is clearly the Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods of swimming.
