It's never too arly to teach them...: that athletes are above the law. The mother is probably right. These kids will be in the news again if they make college ball.

Athletes dumber than Spice Girls?!: Beckham can't help his six year old son with math, and apparently won't be able to in Grammar either. "I think it was maths, actually. It's done totally differently to what I was teached..."

Longhorns preparing for career nfl finding ways to supplement income.: As long as the school doesn't take action and the police don't file charges the Texas DBacks should continue carrying semi automatic pistols, they may need them against USC's passing game.

The San Francisco Giants have now removed prominent tributes in the stadium to Barry Bonds

I think they should put a lifesize bronze statue of Bonds in the batter's box where he was standing when he hit his last homerun. That would make Giants games more fun to watch.

South Korean soccer players dislocate their shoulders to become draft dodgers

I would rather serve in the South Korean Army than play for their soccer team.

What's a coach really worth?

Are High School football coaches paid this much in other states? Yes. I have been a teacher in Texas for 9 years and football coaches consistenly make about twice what my cieling is. I make a little over half my cieling.

Chargers May Play Texans in Dallas

Although Dallas is four hours from Houston, if I recall correctly, it's also a city that has a rivalry with Houston's NFL franchise that's reinforced by a yearly preseason trophy game. Locals will root for the Chargers in that game Wrong. I am a local, and while I love seeing the Cowboys beat the other Texas team, I would still pull for the Texans over any non-Texans. Oh wait, LaDanian is from Waco and Norv gets honorary status as a former Cowboy coach. Go Chargers.

The Dirtiest Man in Football

THIS JUST IN: Science now confirms that if a person devotes their life to violence, including but not limited to football, rodeo, boxing, demolition derby, gang membership, etc., upon reaching "the golden years" they will probably suffer lingering pain. In order to avoid this suffering they should consider a career with a better retirement plan, like teaching grade school, where they will make millions of dollars and be hailed as heroes in the media.

Bird expert who wings in for Wimbledon

Great post. I love seeing someone make a living at their hobby. I wonder if a poster of Randy Johnson would deter pigeons.

The 85 Bears Are Dominating Marketing Like The Defense Dominated The Field

As a lifelong Cowboys fan, this article sounds familiar to me. In the early 90's when Dallas was returning to prominence there was lots of talk that they would never be revered as the Roger Staubach/Doomsday teams of the 70's. By the mid 90's no one was saying that anymore. If the Bears string together two or three Super Bowl seasons in the next few years this team will likely replace the 85 squad in the hearts of many.

NFL Fans, Your Silence is Appreciated

Couldn't wireless communication be intercepted by the opposing team and communicated to the defense? Even if defenses don't do it, anytime a defender gets a lucky guess and breaks up a play it has to enter the mind of the offense and play with their psyche. The crowd noise may actually be less disruptive.

Pokey Reese is Missing

When I didn't show up for two days at my job one time no one came looking, my boss just left a message informing me of my unemployment and telling me if I didn't return the uniform they would dock my pay. It wasn't even a nice uniform, just a blue Dickey's shirt with someone else's name on the pocket and another someone else's name written on the tag with a marker. Maybe he is hiding so he won't have to return the uniform.

Athletes dumber than Spice Girls?!

A little insight as to why so many athletes go broke? They can't count change or figure out how much money they made in the first place. The good news for guys not on their toes enough to get a spice girl to tutor their children...Jessica Simpson is now available!
