Sports Bio

- Bear's season ticket holder.
- Love my Cubs...even though they don't love me back. Did go to game 2 of 2005 WS as a Sox fan. Hey! Yeah you in the back! I heard that! It was a Chicago team and I'm not one of those "love one hate the other" kind of guys. Besides, the Governer of Illinois actually sat BEHIND me, so yeah, they were good seats...and free!
- NASCAR fan but believe NASCAR is perpetuating the "redneck" stereotype because every race I've been to has me facing east so the sun is at my back for the entire race.
- Steel Reserve Scenario Paintball Team rocks!!!

Katrina strikes again: Do any SpoFiers live in Louisiana? I'd like to see more local information about this. This is horrible how they're punishing these kids after their world was destroyed.

What's in a Number?: I know this article is a couple days old but I just heard about it last night. Does every position really need its own numbering system? I'd love to have a referee chime in on this one and can I get a jersey with no number? The thought of it intrigues the collector in me.

NFL Draft Recap: How did your team do, who was the best/worst and who forgot to tell the Bears that no matter what, you're only allowed 11 defensive players on the field at one time?

When is a cap not a cap: Why do they call salary caps, caps, when they don't cap anything? Wouldn't salary guideline fit better?

Why Cyclists Really Shave Their Legs

I hate when style and fashion invade sports. It's like the current crop of eye black stickers that aren't even black or have writing on them. Pointless. There is an outstanding saying that Porsche uses (I have no idea on spelling) Foomsprocken that means Form Follows Function.

Ricky Williams tests positive for marijuana again

I loved his interview on the Dan Patrick show a month or so ago when he said he hasn't smoked in awhile. What is his definition of awhile? Since he put down the bowl or his Bic died? Maybe he's cashed out today? Why not just say, yeah I still smoke. Hell he had to know they'd test him again. Idiot!

Sosa makes history in Rangers' loss

Grum, you hit the nail on the head. Both interleague play and the availability of resources to build new ballparks has made this something that can't be compared to previous eras. I am a fan of the PAPHI stat and have to look into that.

Private eyes are watching you?

All eyes will be on him once he gets the job somewhere so what's so wierd about this? Congrats JaMarcus, you are now a public figure. Get used to it. In the coming years there may be dozens of these people everywhere you go...except then they are called paparazzi. Same exact thing kid, just a different name.

Nice profile of Manny Ramirez

Good article. The man is nutty, that's for sure. But its a good nutty. Favorite Manny moment...aside from the grill for sale on ebay, is the disappearing behind the wall during a pitching change and nearly not making it back out.

2 pitchers for the price of one?

I want to know what kind of velocity he has, and lets all be honest, the picture of him throwing lefty doesn't exactly look graceful.

Space Race...

Hater beat me to it. Are those tethers matched perfect to keep her at earth's gravity level? And she has an advantage of not having to deal with crowds. Cheater...might as well hop in a cab like George Costanza.

Say it is so, Joe!

I feel that Jaws is good but a little overly excitable at times. Has anybody else heard the man call an Arena Football game? He sounds like Gus Johnson during the finally three minutes of a close basketball game at all times.

Clippers Guard Destroys Knee in Freak Injury

I finally saw this thing. It looks like the took the video off the initial site unless you have a membership or something but I'll be darned if youtube didn't pick it up. Ugh, I think I just threw up in my mouth

A Story Behind Every Ring

I read this yesterday as well. I'd be interested to see the losing team's rings from the past 40 years. It says they're allowed to be 1/2 the price. That's still impressive! And does the Patriot's ring from 39 really rock back and forth when set on edge? Is this natural or like those clacky ball things you see on desks from the 70's and 80's?

Asterisk 73 = $238.14.

I think its clever and clearly the guy isn't protesting Bonds but rather making a mockery of him. I'd buy him a beer. Like Weedy said though, It's hardly a protest or even a big deal. You can tell the SF media is hunting for stories.

Texans take a look at Gatlin

My favorite line from the 1991 classic Necessary Roughness, "Don't throw it to stone hands!" Or how about Orlando Jones' character from The Replacements with all that speed but couldn't catch the Twinkie...yeah, I see this going that well.
