The greatest 45 minutes in sports: On May 25, 1935, Ohio State's Jesse Owens set four world records in 45 minutes. The feat was so respected that the Univ. of Michigan still honors the achievement at its track.

Nolan Ryan's Crusade: When Nolan Ryan says pitchers can throw more, he speaks from experience: In 1989, at age 42, he threw 166 pitches for Texas in a loss to the Royals. It's the second-highest total by a nonknuckleballer since STATS LLC began tracking pitches in 1988.

Greatest Grudge Game Ever: November 9, 1912 - Collum Field, West Point, N.Y.
The sky was ugly. The temperature hovered around freezing all day, and black angry clouds were swirling over the Hudson River, threatening at any minute to drop a torrent of sleet on the crowd that had gathered to watch the greatest grudge game in football history.

Transgender female sues to play on LPGA

If you want to sound like a bigot, that's your right, but you don't have the right to do it here. Last warning.

Blah. I haven't once exhibited hatred or intolerance in this thread. If Lawless wants to consider himself a female, then OK, but don't expect others to make concessions for him. (Mr,Ms,Mrs, take your pick)Lawless is obviously confused about (his/her) gender, and I am obviously confused as to what to call (him/her). Sorry, but all the surgery, makeup, and therapy in the world cannot change what God created. Besides, I've been kicked out of way better joints than this one. So I will spare you the task of lifting your banhammer and resign my highly enjoyable tenure as a SpoFite. By the way, if Lawless had any respect for women, or golf, whatsoever, he would respect the women born women who made the LPGA great , and not put his personal agenda above the inherent fairness of the game, or the early efforts of Betsy Rawls and Babe Didrickson et al whose struggles against gender inequality and their ability to beat most people with a penis at golf are legendary.

A better person would be ashamed of such.

How the hell would you know, Mr. Anus??

And lastly:
the whole "(s)he " thing smacks of an old man who can't grasp modernity. Just FYI.

Weedy, I am 50 years old. And I've worked hard all my life and I bet I can work circles around you in more jobs than you will ever fuckin know. So, I may be old by your standards, but being old isn't why I don't put the feelings of some gender confused person above what is best or right for all the women in golf, it's because anyone can see how obviously wrong this is...I hope.

Transgender female sues to play on LPGA

I don't think there would be a problem if the LPGA made sure that there was a level playing field, but that isn't what they are doing.

I think that is exactly what they are doing. At age 57, (s)he is able to win long driving contets against real women. You won't see 57 year old men outdriving the flat bellies on the men's long driving circuit. (S)he clearly has an advantage in her long driving ability. However, I think (s)he probably could not compete with the ladies in what is the essence of golf, which is getting it in the hole in the fewest strokes. Double entendre intended.

Of course, one would think that California tournaments would welcome this person to qualify in their events. Guess I was wrong 'bout that.

"There is no such thing as born female. Either you're female, or you're not."


Let the...idiot, try the same qualifying channels the real ladies of golf have to go through. I bet he doesn't have the game to compete with them.

Cliff Lee Leads Rangers to ALCS

I hope the Yankees sweep the George W. Bush Rangers

I hope the Nolan Ryan Rangers kick some Yankee ass.

In fact, I am betting on it.

College Lineman Loses Fingertip, Keeps Playing

Captain: Cowboys Playing 'Stupid Football'

You mean 1 and 5

Both teams had a week four bye...

For Wade Phillips he is a sorry excuse as a coach

He is no { insert name of favorite gruff, foul tempered coach here }, but he's far from sorry. But, I do think the team is not focused or very well disciplined, and mayhaps another coach could light a fire under their collective asses. And both teams have brutal schedules for the next 5 weeks, so yeah, I think this might be a do-or-die game this weekend for both teams.

I can hardly wait for the fur to fly.

even though Young was hitless in the series up to that point, I figured he was going to do something good with the opportunity.

Michael in the postseason at last. I too, thought he might take advantage of that chance.. Sweeeeeet.
