Spectator Sues Little Leaguer Over Errant Bullpen Throw

I've never seen a serious accident happen to a fan that involved a youth player. Of course, I've never seen anyone sit 5 feet away from an 11 year old tossing a ball unless there was a backstop between them.

Cat-Murdering Dog with Dorito's Wins Super Bowl Ad Meter

I liked the Doritos ad with the baby in the slingshot best. Probably because by the time it aired, I was about ready to put a baby in a slingshot.

That's hilarious!!

Chiefs Spoil Packers' Undefeated Season

What was McCarthy thinking going for a 4th and 9? Arrogance or stupidity? Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. I think he just figured he really needed to get something, anything, going in the right direction.

I knew the Pack had a banged up line, but now I wonder how bad the line play coupled with the "bend but don't break" defensive philosophy will hurt them in the playoffs. They've been pretty successful letting teams run wild between the 20's because they could hang offensively up until now.

Legendary KC Broadcaster Bill Grigsby Dies

Fan favorite around these parts for years. Will certainly be missed. Every Sunday before kick off, he'd describe the smell from the tailgating and tell everyone that it was a BEAUTIFUL day for football.

He's certainly within the rules, and there's a lot more of this than is publicized, though barely any have much luck with accuracy.

I don't know what the oil pattern was at this tournament, but my guess would be that he doesn't score as well on drier patterns. I would be interested in finding out what types of equipment he carries, or how he adjusts to different patterns. He obviously knows what he's doing, even if he shot a bunch of 300's on a house shot.

Vernon Wells traded to Angels for Mike Napoli & Juan Rivera

And even after all that, this isn't the most surprising deal to happen tonight...

Didn't see that one coming. It looked apparent that Damon was going to the Rays, though.......but Manny?

8% of Fans Leave Sporting Events Legally Drunk

I actually thought the number would be higher given that legally drunk is typically .08 (or lower). I would bet in some venues the number of intoxicated fans is higher.

NFL Lockout Looming

Isn't "stop your griping" what we're all told by our bosses when we're told to work extra hours, days, weeks, forfeit vacation, take pay cuts, etc.? These days everyone makes it pretty clear that we can all be replaced. Check out the unemployment line.

I'm not unsympathetic to any workers when they feel they're treated unfairly, but it's easy to see Atheist's point. Go tell some 50 year old construction laborer that runs a jackhammer 12 hours a day that the NFL players don't want to play 2 more games, and see how sympathetic he is.

And maybe we're not comparing apples to apples. I don't know what is on the table for the players. Will their salary increase with an extended season, or will they make the same pay since they're paid for preseason games already?

Nick Folk's Foot Helps Jets Defeat Colts

(Anyone else laugh when Collinsworth said that Sanchez "has been high all day"?)

I wondered if I heard him correctly.

The Hoser's NFL Postseason Picks 2010 -- Week 1

Yeah, what a great round. I wouldn't have bet that way, but for a fan with no vested interest in either team........fun day. Especially Seattle, underdog thing and all.

Royals Flush with Top Prospects

We here in KC always look forward to this time of year when we start hearing how great our farm system is.....and how wonderful our prospects look at each level. Of course, by the end of May when we're eliminated, we look forward to football season, and watch as the Royals dump payroll.

Given available evidence, what's the basis for thinking they will take advantage of this chance rather than trade them all away for peanuts once they break out?

No basis whatsoever. But, I like this guys take on it


Leaves me with some hope.
