St. Louis lands the Anti-Martz.

Caught his press conference and a couple of the local one-on-ones. He seems to be likeable, funny and just what the St. Louis media clamors over...a good interview. But, I watch Jay Leno every night. Linehan will only be front and center on game day, post-games and the Monday afternoon Ram Park press update. Let's see how jovial and friendly he is after a twenty point loss to Texas... Anyway, good luck, Scott. With this front office, you might need it!

Blue Jackets' Berard tests positive for banned substance

Did anyone REALLY think this wouldn't happen, somewhere down the line? Sad...

Bonds' quest for the record could stir many emotions.

If he MUST set a record, let it be for the number of intentional walks he gets over however long he chooses to drag this joke on. Is he good? Yeah. Is he THAT good? Uhhh.....

The debate continues over Europe's greatest soccer players.

You guys are BAGGIN' me! Georgie's been gone a month, and everyone's forgotten "the Best"? Look, he's not Pele, but Jesus, a month ago, the WORLD was shedding a tear. Today, you're crying about that bald headed monkey, Beckham. Bend THIS, Davey boy!!!

MLB Cracks Down

Gwyne, Rose, Boggs...TOTALLY different animals!I don't know... honestly, are performance enhancing drugs REALLY that big a deal? McGwire, Barry, Raffi, all "guilty" of the "juice", but really, homers are homers. McGwire hits a 550 instead of a 505, Barry goes Pond...Steroids enhance muscle mass and power, NOT hand-eye skills. McGwire's 70th barely cleared at 325, and nobody bitched. Greenies, speeders, 'roids...they've been around for a LONG time, in one form or another. Truthfully, hitters are banging CRAP pitching. Face it, with the exception of a handful of Clemens', Johnsons' and (as a Card fan) Carpenters',MLB has no legitimate answer to the dinger dilema, without exposing itself for what it offensive-minded cash cow! If you insist on screaming "drug abuse", I still ask the unanswered question; Steroids are reported to aggressively attack the legs and hamstrings. Given his recent persistant leg problems, why hasn't Junior, the "next Babe", been mentioned in this witch-hunt? Just wondering...

Phil "The Power" Taylor wins his 13th World Darts Title

Sport, hobby, recreation...WHATEVER!!! As is always the case, someone has to step up and declare HIS "love" is the only real thing, and everybody else's ain't squat. I've played baseball, football, basketball, soccer, been hunting, thrown darts, been to NASCAR and played poker. Enjoyed it ALL! Get over this macho crap and let people just enjoy themselves, WHATEVER their "game"! JESUS!

Martz dismissed by the Rams

This Rams fan bids farewell to "The biggest SCHMO on turf"! Hoping to see Mike Tice in town for at least an interview. Yeah, he's got some baggage, but the organization seems, at times, to be owned by Samsonite, from "the Queen bee" on down. Don't wait too long on this one. You've had PLENTY of time to get a short list together. Hmmm...I wonder if Rich Brooks isn't sitting by the phone...

Brett Favre & Marshall Faulk want to retire,

Stephen Jackson can't carry Faulk's jock OR cup. He thinks 1000 yards (a 16 game average of 63 yards) is a major accomplishment! St. Louis fans cheer what the young pups call, "the old dude", when he hits the field. "Dude" gives 105%, doesn't bitch when he only gets 8-10 touches(primarily passes) and STILL adds class AND integrity to a program run by the people whom employed the "greatest schmo on turf", Mike Martz. Faulk may not be Brown, Simpson, Sanders or Smith, but he's STILL someone to worry about EVERY time he gets a touch...

Reardon arrested

Points taken, rcade. I guess I sometimes get rackled when "the usuals" go after everyone, no matter the problem. To all offended, my bad.

It's official.

It's two days after Christmas, and we're ALREADY talking baseball. Jesus, I love you guys! It's only fifty-something days 'til pitcher and catchers. Happy New Year, y'all!!!

Reardon arrested

I'm reminded of something the old man used to say; "That's fine, young pup, YOUR day's coming...". Family loss, drug reactions, irrational thought patterns... and now, smart assed comments by pups who haven't been around long enough to catch the whole game. THIS GUY WAS SQUEAKY CLEAN!!! Stuff happens EVERY day. I'm sure that when EACH ONE OF YOU SMART GUYS messes up, YOU will be the first to tell ALL OF US about it, WON"T YOU? Jeffer, don't know ya, bud, but I'M in your corner, and hope the courts are a bit more forgiving than the heartless bastards who throw funny shit under assumed names! Peace.

Castro Cries Foul

The U.S. is PROHIBITING Cuba from sending a team to the WORLD games? What, did Cheney tap a Miami phone and find out who they were gonna get? And we wonder why we're viewed as the world's bullies. This administration has run more flea-flickers and misdirection plays than a high school team, in getting their way on EVERYTHING! And now, THIS... Simply, stay the hell out of sports and get back to the IMPORTANT matters...your next unannounced pay raise, you farging bastids!

JULIO FRANCO 2 year contract with Mets for 2 million plus BS about it. Could probably kick most of the asses in MLB right now! Look for "Moe" Selig and Congress to ponder metamucil as a performance enhancing powder.
