C.C. Sabathia looks around Cleveland's clubhouse and sees something missing

Wow, talk about a boring read. I swear we need some inside info on some of you people. Baseball hasnt been hot for a while. Hip hop dominates not just black culture but American culture. Hiphop= football and basketball. Thats why blacks play those sports more. More contact, more skill, more speed. Full scholly's help but only an idiot still thinks that coaches dont work out financial aid packages for every kid he wants. You guys are so funny. Let me break it down.....Baseball is not what's hot in the streets, period.

Diversifying a Colorless Game

Y'all are funny. Being black I like to think that black kids are smart enough to know that if you are going to be playing a full contact sport you wear a helmet that fits, a face mask, and a mouthpiece to go along with the pads...especially when what you are playing on is hard as a brick. Yes economics has something to do with it, but do you see football players missing their teeth?

Equal pay for equal play:

I hate this. What a slap in the face to the men. Make the women play best of 5 and its all good. But this is just a complete load of crap. How about a new slogan, equal work for equal pay.

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

Eh, I like free speech. We should let people express themselves so we truly know them. I am not homophobic, because I dont fear gays. Do I respect their lifestyle, no. Do I have any friends that are gay, no. However I am not into persecuting, which can only be done through actions not words by the way, so in the regard I dont bother them. You are never going to be able to tell a whole segment of the population that they have to accept something that they deem incredibly immoral. I assure I dont think that I am morally sound all the time but I tend to not fight nature. If being gay werent a decision thing, like being a thief or crack head, I think there wouldnt still be all this fuss. But all of this revolves around a choice. We dont have to respect, like, or embrace your own personal choice. And you cant even compare people not liking gays to people not liking blacks. A) you are born black you dont choose it. B) gays werent enslaved then actively discriminated against. I'd say they havent been through anything of note, as a group, that makes their cause so special.

Abandoning Your Post.

Obviously someone doesnt know that its easier to have a layup blocked than a dunk. Thats why people do it, not just for flash. If anything the NBA should make the courts bigger and move the 3 point line out. If coaches cant keep their poor shooters from forcing 3s then thats their problem not ours.

Former NBA center John Amaechi announces that he is gay.

yawn, Amaechi was garbage. I'm glad he found a way to make some money off of being gay. kudos for that. Just because one doesnt care for someone of a certain mindset doesnt mean they hate nor fear them. If its not ok for me to say being gay is wrong, then how is it ok to tell me your opinion of my opinion?

Hawaii QB says no to NFL.

How is Tommy Chang panning out? Seriously guys how often do the QBs from the little schools get enough respect to warrant leaving early? Personally a guy would have to be a freak athletically, Big Ben, for me to draft him at a reasonable slot. If piling up monster numbers against pathetic teams was all it took to be a high draft pick then Texas Tech would be sending guys in the first round every year. Not a Colt fan.

Youngest Player in 49 Years Makes PGA Cut

I doubt he gets much media attention. He isnt a 6 ft chick. He is a 5 ft guy that is smaller with more game, big deal. He is supposed to have more game right? He was playing on the tour he was supposed to be, he's a guy.

Beckham makes it official.

Here we go again. I'm not even going to diss soccer, its a very difficult sport to play. However I must say that I dont think Beckham can inspire kids like you guys think he can. I think most of America wont even look at him as one of their own. He doesnt even sound like an American anymore with that prissy accent and that isnt going to sit well in the south to say the least. I wish him luck as he isnt taking any food out of my mouth. And if I were a defender I would break him the first chance I got just for being so crazy paid. Anyway I think an atmosphere of excitement starts from the lower levels and works its way up. If you cant get people to watch highschool soccer or college soccer then it has no future. Needless to say the big 3 dont have that problem.

A Manís Place at a Womanís Practice Faces Limits

Women are catching up to men in air rifles. WTF??? Last time I checked you dont have to be an athelete to shoot a gun or throw a dart. As for basketball, of course you get better when you practice against players that are worse matchups for yourself, so when you get to a good matchup then you can dominate. No different than a frosh and a senior. The frosh should have a bad match up against a senior, but when he plays another frosh he should do even better than he did before. I say let the women stop playing with the men. I am tired of hearing how good they are. If college teams need to take reguar students off the yard to practice then obviously there are some serious gaps in talent.

A.I on his way out.

If I could lead the league in scoring and still be past my prime obviously I wasnt the problem. How many 40 pt 10 asst games has AI had this season already, ummm like 4. STFU.

US all stars sweep Japan.

What was your point MJ? Didnt the article just say the MLB swept the Japan All stars. So should we discount the most recent wins for the latter? In that case Spain still isnt that good at basketball, they only won the last competition. Argentina is the man, but wait we clocked Argentina this year, so we're still the man. Yay!

Lots of Attention. Little Success.

Dont get mad at men for not paying women sports any attention. If I am not mistaken women make up slightly more than half of the population, the onus should be on them to support their sisters. We shouldnt be guilted into watching an effort inferior to what our brothers are capable of accomplishing. And dont compare Dan Marino to these broads, he has won plenty of games. Neither of them has won a race/tournament. That argument was pathetic.

I hope people actually start reading articles before posting in the future. If you dont understand what you read, then please ask for help.

Is the current roster on USA Basketball the new Dream Team?

Are you guys even conscious when you write. The olympics arent played until 2008. The guys will be even more disgusting then they are now. Stop having a cow.
