Kazoos and pennies in a jar?: What about the Sacramento fans banging cowbells directly behind the Mavs' bench at Arco Arena? Incidentally, I heard that Cuban was thinking about buying cowbells and distributing them at the game.

I'm sure this is in the best interest of the NBA and its' players, but it doesn't seem fair that one side can do it and the other can't.

NBA playoff predictions?:

Lewis must fight Tyson: says the World Boxing Council. Rumors are suggesting the venue could be at the Texas Motor Speedway or in Atlanta. Good news for the boxing world?

Now every team at the World Cup has played. Thoughts so far?

I was impressed with all of the African teams, especially Nigeria, who could have beat Argentina with a little luck.

Owen wants Heskey moved back to usual position.

Gonna wake up in a few hours to watch this match. I'm predicting England 3-1.

England World Cup squad

England will definitely fare well in this cup, though I agree with sauril - I don't think anyone will be able to beat France.

What's the latest on Beckham? I haven't been watching my Fox Sports World lately because exams are coming up.

World Cup odds for England?

Yeah, I'm going to have to go with France too. Barthez in the net is just sooooo lethal.

Liverpool lose to Bayer Leverkusen...4-2. 4-3 on aggregate.

Thanks to my digital cable connection, I probably watch more soccer football than most Euros. And Owen also had a hurt foot which is why he probably didn't fare all that well.

Should men coach women in collegiate sports?

I think the job should always go to the most qualified individual.

Nuggets trade entire offense to Dallas for washed-up veterans.

A friend ran a credible statistical analysis via NBA 2k2 on X-box and concluded that the Mavs can not lose the championship this year. I would concur.

Ohno wins gold in Men's 1500m short skate.

Pastepotpete - where are you now, man? Free Apolo Ohno!

Ohno has been getting deaththreats too.

Well, I guess you're an expert in Speed Skating. You must have grown up in South Korea, right? And yes, I pay attention to announcers because I don't know all of the rules. But I didn't need an announcer to tell me that Ohno was (for the umpteenth fucking time) tackled.

I totally agree, now that it's over and done with. Ohno is definitely my favorite athlete in these Olympics. He seems like a real stand-up guy (kid).

Check that -- He (Bradbury) was not the one gang-raped and pulled down yards for the line.

Yes, yes, blah, blah, blah. First of all, Bradbury was the only one to stay on the ice as if he deserved the medal. He was the one gang-raped and pulled down yards from the line. Ohno is a stand up guy, and I would expect him to say as much. You must not have been watching it or you would have heard the announcers say it is not uncommon for them to re-race if it is deemed necessary. If getting fucking tackled doesn't qualify them restarting the race, then I would say that's a travesty.

PastePotPete - Give me a fucking break. You must not have watched the race. The Aussie was in 5th place 20 yards from the finish. That means he's the 5th best, not the best. He didn't do better than 4 other people, he just benefited from a travesty. Anybody can see that Ohno got royally screwed. How hard would it be to run the race over again? The judges fell asleep at the wheel, and he got robbed of a GOLD MEDAL that he should have won. And Sprague must have been before my time, btw.

The South Korean guy freaking form tackled him. As he was going down, he did a reach-around on Ohno and pulled him down.
