Vinatieri Signs with the Colts

Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that Belichick knows something that we don't know? Name one player he has let go who hasn't shown diminished skills -- and yes, that goes for now-blimpy Ty Law, despite his deceptive stats.

Top 25 Baseball Innovations

What belongs in the Top 10 is the incessant barrage of ridiculous mini-advertisements we have to put up with at every opportunity DURING the game: from "the McDonald's I'm Lovin' It Starting Line-up" to "the Goodyear Tire Player of the Game" (not to mention "the Lo-Jac Caught-Stealing replay," or the "Rolaids How-Do-You-Spell Relief incoming pitcher statistics," or "the Safe at Home Depot moment," or "the WaterPik Professional Oral Cleaning System Pick-off attempt replay," or "the ‘Oh what a feeling!’Toyota game-recap", or...

The next Derrek Lee?

John Papelbaum: As a starter OR a closer. That's how good he's going to be.

Very superstitious, writing's on the wall

An hour before every Patriots playoff game, I like to get laid for good luck, among other reasons. But before last week's abominable loss to Denver, my girl wasn't "about to hang around for a stupid football game on a Saturday night." And guess who scored 24 of their points on a total of 27 yards? HINT: It wasn't the Patriots. A coincidence, you say? Prior to that, Brady was 10-0 in the playoffs and I was one contented guy. Then she flew the coop,but I definitely got screwed by the referees. Ain't that a bitch?

Official was wrong

Yeah, they'll fine Joey Porter, all right-- a token $15,000 or so, which is the equivalent of what would be pocket-change for you and I. But the most atrocious call regarding this game was Pussy Peyton throwing his O-Line under the bus after the game. You don't do that in public after these guys have been busting ass for you all game. It just ain't cool.

Vince Young turning pro

I'm crushed -- yet another potential American Rhodes Scholar lost to the insensitivity of the collegiate system. When, oh when, will this country stop losing it's best and brightest to the NFL?
