Owens suspended indefinitely by Eagles: I know this is close to beating a dead horse in SpoFi, but it's Terrell, so lets all feed the need.

Men Want to Know How a Batter Swings

Expecting lbb's arrival in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... As a somewhat long time SpoFi reader and someone that has noticed the nuances of specific participants, THAT is freakin' funny! Still love ya, lbb.

Red Sox brass meeting with Matsuzaka's agent

I think everybody recognizes the nauseous game being played out here. Unfortunately, it is a game that needs to be played in the interest of D-Mat and Scott Boras' commision. Boras uses hyperbole and the Red Sox down play. I expect them to meet in the middle.

NBA going back to old ball.

***GROAN*** Another useless collectable coming to an eBay account near you.

Coaches face suspension for wins of 50-plus points

Mocking people from another state, in which you probably have no affiliation with, is sterotypical and ignorant. Your name sums up your point perfectly.

Yet another leak?

Setting reliability and the above Yankee bias aside, getting a career 3.46 ERA, 26 year old for a top prospect seems like a gift from the Gods for the Red Sox rotation. Add Beckett to Johnathan Papelbon and the rotation starts to look above average. Mike Lowell (a Yankee Draftee) will either platoon or outright replace Bill Mueller. It would appear to be a strong move by the GM-by-committee in Boston that does solve a problem and need. The Marlins also get what they want, which is salary relief.

"Hacking at my tackle"

That's just nuts!

That'll shut 'em up (maybe).

LBB, I always wondered where Stuart Scott got most of his flavorful catch-phrases from. I caught the highlights on (you guessed it) ESPN and I like her game. Tojord, she's got a strong build, but yeah, she ain't no Siberian Seductress. Check her here.

Longest touchdown in NFL history

I concur TIEGUY, I've really enjoyed watching the discussions for the last year or so and only recently joined them. However, between the unqualified passionate statements and hateful usernames, this place isn't the same. You gotta love the size of Nathan Vasher's Stones. Either take the ball at your own 35 yard line or risk being in the coaches doghouse when you are tackled short of it. He took door number 3.

Owens suspended indefinitely by Eagles

Playball9, that would open up the running game and Lamont Jordan would go over 2000, yards. My beloved Vikings don't need that level of competition.

Money, it's a gas. Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash. New car, caviar, four star daydream, think I'll buy me a football team.

I think it is fair to say that money buys a greater opportunity for trophies or championships. John Nicholson touches on this point with the quote, "Yes the money gives you a much bigger chance of success by allowing you to have strength in depth..." Does it guarantee success? Most definitely not, due to the overwhelming amount of variables associated with team sports. A cute point of note would be the difference in salary between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, which is about $80 million. What can $80 million buy? It bought the team that won the World Series. I would certainly enjoy a level playing field for the sports that I watch, but there's something to be enjoyed and said for the David and Goliath clashes in organized athletics. Who doesn't enjoy rooting for the underdog, on occasion? However, I can feel for the franchise owners and fans that have to struggle to contend with the Financial Goliaths of the Organized Sports World.
