China's National Stadium Design Competition for 2008

I can't say as I've ever seen it, so no. You're not missing out on much.

China's National Stadium Design Competition for 2008

I'd like to see a modern reproduction of the Colosseum You mean Tennessee's doesn't remind you of the Colosseum?? Pshh. With that being said, I don't really like any of them. They look too much like something that walked out of a science fiction movie. The only one I like is B11; someone please tell me what B10 will be used for...I can't figure it out; and is it just me or does B04 look like a yacht?

Carolina Hurricanes win the Stanley Cup in Game 7

As an Oilers fan going into game 7, I have to confess that I was expecting a bit more from them, considering what they'd done prior to that. (Perhaps I was just underestimating Carolina...) Even though I am sad that Edmonton didn't win the Cup, I have to hand to Carolina: these guys deserved it. It's still hard for me to fathom a Southern team beating a Canadian team in a hockey match, but they did it and I thought that the series was phenomenal. Brind'amour was outstanding and was a key component to his team. And hopefully Cam Ward continues to do what he did last night. This series should make some people realize that hockey is still very much alive and that they're missing out.

Football for Jihadists

I cannot believe this! This is insane! Are these limitations only placed on soccer? What about other sports - what kind of regulations are on those? Better yet, why don't they just go ahead and say that they shouldn't play sports at all since other "heretical countries" play them, and that wouldn't be "differentiating themselves from the heretics, the polytheists, the corrupted, and the disobedient".

Jaguars Cheerleader Escaped Murder Plot

This is truly disturbing. All this over a car. It's a CAR, people, a car. The whole Scooby and Shaggy thing is pretty weird, too. Something isn't totally right with these guys...Oh well, I'm glad she's ok.

Coach resigns after high school bans pregame prayer

go notre dame, I very much agree with you, and lil_brown_bat, I agree with you as well. Vouchers should not be an option, but as I said before, no one will ever be happy. There will always be a problem with this subject.

NHL inks TV deal

As of now, the NHL needs all the help they can get. I don't think that they will ever return to their previously attained heights of whatever. Whether or not this will help the situation, well...who knows?

Coach resigns after high school bans pregame prayer

No matter what the outcome of any of this, someone is going to be unhappy. There will always be some faction of people who will be having the freedoms "infringed upon".
