Tim Hardaway, the yin to Jon Amaechi's yang:

"While you're indulging in some fantasy about choosing who you'd like to share a foxhole with--I didn't know you got to pick--" Well you may not know military units are broken down into squad size, approximately 12 men. Like basketball but with much more at stake. "In either scenario, make sure you imagine yourself surrounded by the Creeping Gay Horde." Date who you want dude I don't really care but I don't want to hear the intimate details of your lifestyle choice and problems with your husband. And you guys are a creeping horde everything today is gay gay gay gay. Hollywood and the supporting media is creating the gay state. Enough already.

Tim Hardaway, the yin to Jon Amaechi's yang:

Tim Hardaway doesn't feel like being in a shower with a homosexual ""GASP"". Most of the posts here are sympathetic towards the gay player and I'm surprised. There is a reason the guy was in the closet up to now. It's because he knew the reactions he would recieve, for one he knew the straight guys would feel uncomfortable showering with him and that his lifestyle choice could affect team morale. Being a successful unit on the basketball court requires trust, unity, friendship, and loyalty. Common bonds include love of women, nice cars, nice possessions etc. Maybe that list is shallow but these guys play basketball, they are not computer engineers or ACLU lawyers so what do people expect from a player's reaction? I'm with Hardaway to this extent, if I am in a foxhole for two days waiting for the enemy I want to share that moment in my life with someone who shares my values. When we talk I don't want to hear about how uncomfortable last Thanksgiving was at the "inlaws" house and how hard it is for him and his husband in this society. You have got to be kidding me!

Lefty Answers Prayers of Football's Dirtiest Player

The NFL treats their former players only slightly better than the Roman treated their gladiators. How many kids of disabled former players could they have sponsored to college on the money they paid Prince for that hideous halftime show? Phil is a true role model. I tell my kids to watch his movements. Class personified!

Giants hopes fans and team will Bonds together.

Bonds has made me a Giant hater. He is a narcissist and as a result has no idea what he is doing (and has done) to the game.

Michael Vick Passes the Buck

Who would you want right now if you were starting a new team today? S.F.s Smith or Atlanta's Vick? I'll take Smith. Drop back passer with an ability to roll out vs. a running QB with marginal passing skills. Vick's time has come and gone sad to say.

Broncos' Darrent Williams Is Shot Dead

He seemed like one of the good guys. We have some deep societal issues folks. My sympathies to his family.

Arenas On Kobe: "My Numbers Are Blowing His Out Of The Water"

Frankly the NBA could use a new scoring front man. Gilbert has not been alleged to have raped a blonde hotel desk clerk and then covering it up by buying his lady a 6 million dollar ring (LMAO). Oh btw, that would not work on a smart wife! Dumb and dumber living in bliss? I like Arenas. He was trained by Lute and knows how to carry himself. There could be hope for the NBA yet!

Vacaville HS vs Merced HS (37-36)

Nice story. Good for your school kid. As for his grammar I understand and accept this is now the standard for the average California high school student. My kids attend high school at Clovis West in Fresno and my sophomore informs me most kids never turn in homework or class assignments. Some of the A.P. classes are so noisy the kids that want to learn can barely hear the teacher. The teachers that care are worn down by Christmas break. One P.E teacher is on the cell phone all day talking to her girlfriend even when her class is on the swimming rotation. Even so Clovis West consistantly fields national top 20 sports teams and cheer squads. There are serious minded kids and some good teachers and many graduates go on to Stanford, Cal, Harvard and other outstanding universities. Frankly the kid who wrote the piece above would probably pull a B out of 10th grade English (non-honors) anywhere in the California.

Sorry Mr. Stern but the players have had enough.

I don't watch NBA games for a couple of reasons, One is Kobe Bryant and two, it's boring until the final minute that always turns into 15 real minutes anyway. I don't care about foul calling and I understand why they keep a tight reign on these guys. If they allow it to get too sloopy they will be tempting all out brawls and then it will just end up hockey by another name. My final knock on the NBA is the players are generally pot heads. I know not all of them are high 24/7 but everyone knows the NBA and pot are an issue. I don't really care if a person drowns himself in smoke every night but I will not point my kids to games played by people that use it.

Quick, name a sulking NFL receiver looking bad on the sidelines: Marvin Harrison?

Please don't even put the classy Harrison on the same page as Owens, Johnson or Moss. Harrison is one of the only role models in Football period! I believe Harrison accepts the reality that he makes millions of $s per year to play a game of pitch and catch. Do your job, thank God for the opportunity and be humble in the process. He does that.

Bo Schembechler Dies on Eve of Michigan/Ohio State Game

That's why my kids won't be going to a university in Ohio. Too many pinheads reside there. Go Michigan!

My Space

However it could be used smartly to get under the skin of an opponent. Register under your rival school name and prop some goats or other farm animals in mock dorm rooms, pop some photoshop cropped photo's on the site and........ah I miss college!
