Wie Makes Cut in South Korea

The nmumber of "eye candy" female golfers who are now playing is great regardless of which tour they play on. Soon however, the draw of the centerfold gets them and off they go to the studio, movies, commercials, etc. Just like the russion tennis players.

Legends of the game are perplexed

Let's not forget that Jack was the Tiger of his day. He always held an advantage because of his length. Also, while Tiger is the one you hear about, other guys are constantly hitting it as long as Tiger.

Sharon Robinson doesn't want to water down the significance of Jackie's retired number

I am 62 and got to see Jackie play many times. He layed the groundwork for African Americans not only to play the game but to show they could play it as well as most and much better than some. He also was able to influence many racist players to revise their conduct and beliefs.There was black, white and most importantly there was baseball. Robinson played in an era where baseball was your summer job. In the winter you worked in a deli, laid bricks, sold cars, etc. MLK marched and made speeches. Now he has streets named after him and a national holiday. Jackie Robinson did more for the African American movement by stealing (bases) than MLK can dream about. Jackie had a dream, he also followed it.

The debate continues over Europe's greatest soccer players.

OK, I didn't know the rule extended to players who are Mexican (Luis Garcia) who happens to be playing in Europe. Mexico is not in Europe.

Beckham would be on the list assuming you are talking about present day players and not going into the past.

Nobody in that group worthy as first timers. A few will struggle for years before squeeking in.

Taking a Header

On second thought, the kids could use the helmets to put the 2,000 orange peels in that their parents give them at halftime.

Taking a Header

Banning heading in soccer is by any definition ridiculous. Heading is an intrinsic technique in both attack and defensive modes. At one point in time several years ago there was a statistic that showed the overwhelming percentage of goals scored inside the box were header made and/or assisted. A helmet on a player can actually be classified as a "weapon" under certain conditions. You can do more damage to someone with a helmet than can be done to you without one.
