Who Showed Up? Was it Really Clutch Rex? Bears Move On.

im not sure if it was just me seeing this, but it seemed like there was only one down (third) that grossman actually took the time to look at the entire field. he was consistantly, on passing downs, only watching one reciever and waiting for him to get open. its as if he knows who is getting the ball before the play starts, whether that person is open or not. i saw it on several occasions. im not sure if it is because he is afraid to look over the whole field, for fear of losing track of where the pass rush is or what, but it became painfully obvious to me that he is sticking to the primary reciever far too often.

Writer: Athletes Should Bounce 'Nigga' From Vocabulary

i myself am a black teen from chicago and i believe that the word is relatively inoffensive when used between friends. black or white, i think that if you know the person you are talking to well enough to call them your friend, then you should probably know how they will react to such a word and you go on that. while it may be a "cop out" there is nothing fundamentally wrong with censoring yourself around some, especially when you will be found offensive, and allowing yourself to speak more freely among others. i dont think that it is reasonable to think that this word can be rooted out of modern language, mainly because is has lost much of its taboo in several circles. it also could be construed as a freedom of speach issue. for instance, you go to a baseball game and sitting behind you is someone who is using the "f word" in nearly every sentance. you may say something to this man but there is not much you can do, bringing in the authorities aside, to make this person stop. i think that it would be better to just accept the word for what it has become rather than what it was and try to promote tolerance in other ways.

So...who's for real and who's a pretender so far?

well, the "comedy central" is no longer a joke. they have the 2 best teams in the majors in my opinion (chicago and cleveland), and with detroit plaing the way they are, they will be tough to beat. and u can never count out minnesota. the cubs will choke for sure. i like the mets to get in. what remains to be seen is that any national league team can beat an american league contender. i think that the best team in the national league this season will be worse than any second or third place team in the american league. the yankees wont go anywhere this season. if they even make the playoffs, they will be a quick first round exit. other than oakland (the white sox killers) neither of the west divisions looks like they are capable of producing a contender this season. but then again it is still incredibly early in the season. im just waiting for the royals to shock the world and go on a 75 game winning streak and shut everyone, including myself, up. that would be something. oh, and buffalo, fuck the yankees.

America's new dancing machine!!!

its very interesting how much of a variety of different people we have on this site. there are many different beliefs and ideals and moral standings. we have the "Phuck Sensorship." and the "Somebody please escort the foulmouthed illiterates out of here." posts. so to the stuck-up tightwads that can't appreciate the occasional curse word i say, "fuck you." and to the dumbasses that have nothing to do for the post, i say "shut the fuck up." ...fuck.

The poetry of JJ Redick

not bad. way too religious for me. but not bad. great basketball player. i am very impressed with is abilities on the court. as for his writing....its not something he could make a living off of, but he does seem to have a fairly vast vocabulary and puts it to good use.

Kobe drops 81 for 2nd most in a game in history of NBA.

jonson- i could. u can argue all u want about the authenticity of this amazing feat, but there is no questioning that it is amazing. im still in disbelief about it. scoring 81 points in two games is thought of as having two great games. he did it in one. with both baylor and wilt's highest-scoring games, they were their team's offense. u baisically have to be to score that many points. kobe will never be as good as jordan in my mind, but he is the closest iv ever seen of heard of, selfish ego-maniac or not.

McNabb might be going ... groin ... gone

mcnabb is a much better than average qb in all aspects. iv seen him throw pinpoint passes through two defenders for the touchdown more than once...when he was healthy. and his running was superior...when he was healthy. even his awareness was far better than normal...well, u get the picture. if he can nurse himself back to old form, he should still be one of, if not the best all-around quarterback in the league. but in football, that is a big if.

"Hacking at my tackle"

what the fuck. he is either lying and is completely insane, or he wanted the publicity. u dont cut off ur nuts then pretend like its no big deal. i have dreaded sharp objects around my waist level for years now, and i cannot even picture what the scene was like at this social club. man: HEY EVERYONE, LOOK AT MY NUTS IN THIS BAG!!! fellow club members: OH MY GOD MAN, WHAT THE HELL IS WRING WITH U?? (one man runs up and kicks the man in his bloodied crotch and screams in delight as the man falls over and bleeds to death, while everyone else shrugs off the dying idiot and goes back to their business)
