MLB Resolutions: What better way to set goals for 2007 than with New Year's resolutions for some of baseball's biggest and brightest. (Grum, there is even a shout out for you.)

More than just a 'roid freak...: Sad turn of events for body building's star couple. Kelly Ryan was once a student of Bela Karolyi, before she met Craig Titus.

NCAA deems Chief Illiniwek Hostile: Ridiculous. Shouldn't they use something like academic performance of the athletes to reward schools with post season events?

Whatever Godell says ...

Perhaps the NFL should have its own prison system and those teams can just play one another.

A dazzling Manny being Manny moment

Sorry, but Ankiel had a genuine "great catch" for the Cardinals last night against the Pirates.

Rickroll the Mets!

I'm with Grum, anything that isn't the MLB mandated cookie cutter crap would be nice. (I cringe everytime that "day-O" stupidity comes over the PA.) I had never heard of rickrolling before this. I think its pretty funny.

The Buck Stops Here

It will be good to see/ hear more of Rick Horton. He's got a great voice and excellent baseball knowledge. I would rather Hrabosky part ways with the Redbird booth-- he's a pompous buffoon.

Floyd Irons paid so they could play.

I remember all of the community outrage when this guy was fired. I hope they are keeping up on all of the developments and are outraged that he never paid for their sons to play basketball. I love his angle-- I did it so they wouldn't be on the streets... so they could go to college. He forgot-- for a select few... for a limited time... as long as I am making money. STL public schools are in shambles and this guy makes 90K? Its no wonder STL public schools are a joke and are not capable of managing without state intervention.

Rolen for Glaus?

Bo should know that the Cardinals win if this pans out.

Journalist: The NFL's No Game for a Family

I refuse to go to any Cubs-Cardinals games at Busch Stadium anymore. Fist fights broke out at two of the games I attended and the ushers were so worthless they didn't even kick the guilty parties out of the stadium. The rivalry just attracts a special kind of stupid.

How Oprah ruined the marathon

I volunteered at the finish line of a half-marathon last Sunday. One of the last finishers looked at the time clock at the finish line and said, "I made it in under 4 hours." It wasn't until he went to pull off the race number stub that I realized he had had a stroke that affected the right side of his body. Elites may be the marathon "spirit", but its guys like this who are the heart. I'll run along side, and be honored to get bogged down at a water stop with, guys like that any day.

Yanks' Shelley Duncan Crushes Poor Child's Hopes, Dreams, Future, Then Laughs And Sacrifices A Black Goat To The Dark Lords

If the autograph was so offensive why didn't the kid's mom just throw it away? Duncan is in a no win situation... he just signs his name, the kid takes it to school and makes fun of it ala Chico... signing "Dear Little 10 year old, hope we can still be friends despite your love of the Red Sox" is too ridiculous to imagine... "Dear kid, please let your parents be your role models" is obviously a bad idea as his mother has demonstrated that it may not be her strong suit. Can't blame Duncan if he never wants to sign another autograph. I think its ridiculous some media person (no journalist here) gave this woman her 15 minutes of fame.

From Nike, Thank You

Makes me even happier to sport my Starbury gear. Nike has lost their mind.

Death Race 2007

This sounds like fun. Anyone aware of anything similar (besides the Camp Pendleton Mud Run) in the States? SG: It can't be exactly like the Corps. Unless they have changed some standards and let you do the stuff in your underwear... carrying an inflatable alligator.

Cards win the NL Pennant.

Holden, I'll be in 367-- just look for the Underdog poster, which actually did get shown on Fox during NLCS game 5. Let me know if you need a seat warmer down there in the money rows. Back on subject-- Harry Carey didn't suck, but he couldn't hold a candle to Jack Buck. I wish Bob Costas would loose his mind/sell-out/ignore his morales and return to TV commentary for MLB. He won't, which is why he is my choice for the best modern day baseball commentator. Which I guess I can't call him, since he doesn't do it anymore.

Cards win the NL Pennant.

Holden, what section? I should be at at least one of the three (I predict Cards in six). Regardless of who wins, I just hope the games are rivoting enough to keep me from going insane listening to useless Fox announcer drivel. I should just mute it and play the radio broadcast, but its always a pitch behind. Being from the STL, its hard to admit that Joe Buck is a sell out.

UT tells woman she cheers too much

In my experience, people who "cheer" like this chick are less knowledgeable about the sport they are spectating and therefore have to alleviate their boredom/lack of understanding by being a disrespectful idiot. I'm all for doing whatever it takes to encourage fans to be fun and respectful, but then I can barely tolerate booing, so I may not be the best barometer.
