Klinsmann changes his mind: Oh, great.

With news circulating that Klinsi has all but donned red, white, and blue, he has now withdrawn his name from further consideration.

Smoke and fire. That whole saying.

Four seconds: Sidney Crosby's goal like you've never seen it

Well that was a gut punch.

Canada captures gold

1) At least the Pens aren't on the remaining season schedule for the Blues. Probably couldn't handle any more daggers from Crosby.

2) You can't hype up a "rivalry" and expect everybody to be all orange slices, handshakes, and pizza parties at the end of the game, though.

Guess I'm glad it wasn't Toews who scored the winner.

"We believe in live. We believe in live."

It was great to be in Vancouver and catching the events live on television. I came home to this nonsense and understood, in a moment of extreme clarity, that everything everybody has said negatively about NBC over the last half year has been absolutely true.

I'm actually going to the Winter Games in a couple of weeks. My apologies to my Vancouver brethren.

Washington Hires Mike Shanahan as Coach

As long as Snyder owns this team Shanahan GM/coaches this team they will not win a playoff game let alone make it to the SB.

To be fair though, I don't really see how this team makes it past third in the division, much less worry about the playoffs.

Anyone who says it's a bad call doesn't understand football.

Dodgers Sweep Cardinals, Advance to NLCS

You can pull your pants back up, Bo, I wasn't asking anybody to measure.

Dodgers Sweep Cardinals, Advance to NLCS

I'm a Giants fan living in St. Louis, so naturally I was pulling for the Cardinals in this one.

As soon as the game was over, the roads were crowded and people were trying to forget this ever happened.

Well, at least I'll stop hearing the "best fans in baseball", self-congratulations that this city absolutely revels in for a couple of months.

Native Americans Ask Supreme Court to Sack Redskins Trademark

My wife called me coonass tonight and I gave her the dirtiest look I've probably ever given her.

The pains of being part Cajun.

ESPN2 Will Air Premiership Opener, Saturday Matches

You mean you didn't enjoy his little headset?

I felt he should have been promoting synergy, asking for 110% effort.

Tebow, McCoy, Bradford have Florida, Texas, Oklahoma 1-2-3

Bragging rights and bulletin board fodder. The whole "Nobody believes in us!" nonsense that doesn't make much sense if you're ranked in the top ten nationally.

David Beckham: Landon Donovan's 'Unprofessional'

However, that's not to say that Beckham is without blame. Beckham has hardly been the consummate professional on these shores with the way he's carried himself both on and off the pitch.

David Beckham: Landon Donovan's 'Unprofessional'

I think Landon should have put on his big boy pants well before Beckham came to the Galaxy. He might have found himself lasting longer at Leverkusen to begin with and might have avoided a very public row with one of the game's most recognizable faces.
