So his coach offers support? Buy him a jockstrap.

The_Black_Hand -- I don't understand what you are talking about. How specific do you need to get. Ricky Williams has been tested positive for drugs more 3 times (YES -- Marijuana is an ILLEGAL drug, like it or not). Is it a far stretch that he would be caught a fourth time. Ricky Williams has done nothing but show a complete disregard for the rules of the NFL. They should ban him from the game. As for Saban, he is an idiot if he thinks that backing Williams makes him look like a "players coach". I would venture to guess that most players don't want to put up with a distraction like him anymore.

US MEN Win Curling Bronze 8-6 over Britain

I have become fascinated with curling. It is like bowling, in Antarctica. Wonderful sport.

The Rocket to represent the United States.

Who cares, as long as he is pitching for the U.S. Even though he is eligible for Social Security, he is one of the best in the business. He has low ERA's every year and he brings confidence to the team.

Remind me not to go hunting with Dick Cheney.

This is hilarious. Luckily for that guy, Dick Cheney has had so many heart attacks he travels with a complete ER staff. I have been quail hunting several times and I was always under the impression that you don't shoot until the birds are high enough off the ground that you won't clip the humans, but who am I.

There is more than one way to eliminate the Yankees.

It is great for the kids that they get free jerseys and everything, the question should be, "Why can't the Sox give that stuff away anyways. Why do they have to be acting like little children squabbling over who is bettera before they do something good for the community?" It appears to me that the Yankees and the Sox are jealous because they have to buy fans. The Yankees buy championships and the Sox buy little kids with jerseys. Maybe they should look at the real organizations like the Cubs and the Cards whose fans love them no matter what.

There is more than one way to eliminate the Yankees.

The Yankees and the Red Sox are both ridiculous. They spend more money on salaries then most of the MLB combined. Why don't they just pay each other to go home and shut up. It is ridiculous to bring youth baseball into their petty squabbling. Let the kids have fun. The whole point of youth sports is to have fun and learn SPORTSMANSHIP. NOw we are saying that money is what is important. Great idea.

Lions ink Mike Martz as Offensive Coordinator

As a St. Louis fan, we are more than happy to give him to you. We will miss his offensive prowess, but he was a cancer to our organization. I hope that he has better luck in Detroit.

Super Bowl watched in second-most homes behind final episode of M*A*S*H,

MASH cannot be rivaled by anyone or anything. Seinfeld couldn't lick Alan Alda's boots.

Woods beats Els in playoff to win Dubai Classic

Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer ever. He never loses a lead once it is established and if he gets behind, he is never out of the tournament. The man has ice in his veins.

Emmitt Smith:

So what we are saying is that, gambling is not OK, but cocaine and prostitutes are. Great message NFL. Especially considering gambling is legal and the others are not.

WOW -- 113 in one game is unbelievable. Kudos to her and I hope she does well. Also, I was suprised by the Lisa Leslie note in the article. 110 in one half. Imagine if they had played the second half...200+???

U. of Ill. Appeals to Keep Indian Mascot

This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. No where have I heard the Native American tribes all over the country complaining about the colleges. I would think that it would be an honor that an institution would want to use your heritage to personify their school. (As with Florida State, the Seminole Indians are proud for them to use their names.) If a tribe complains then the NCAA should take a look at THAT INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL, but a blanket ban is stupidest thing in the world. Where does it end??? Why doesn't NOtre Dame have to change their name to keep from offending Irish descendants OR what about Duke/Arizona State -- the "Devil" could offend the Christians, let's make them change their names. THis is absurd.

Heavy NFL players twice as likely to die before 50

Atheist...On the flip side there ARE many jobs that do require health standards. (Police, Firefighter, Military, etc.) Also if you check the trends in society, many employers are beginning to offer incentives for employees to get healthier. You are right, but I think that the weight problem is becoming a major public health hazard and the Supreme Court may become more lax in allowing certain professions to slim down...Especially athletes who are supposed to be healthy and are in the limelight.

Steeler fan has over 200 hours' worth of tattoos

Football fans should not be allowed in tatoo parlors. This guy may be almost as bad as the guy who has the signatures of the Chicago Bears players tatooed on him. I love the Rams, but sports teams come and go.
