Bowden must go,: according to Keith Olbermann, because of his words and his lack of actions in the aftermath of his September 11th reference. Olbermann says, "One feels that had Bowden chosen to stand up and breathe life into these flat words, the apology might have seemed sincere, the trespass understood, and the reaction limited to some brief suspension or leave of absence. Instead, Bowden has compounded cruelty with cowardice." Like all the other managers Olbermann mentions, should Bowden give up his job?

Hall of Famers step to the plate.: Forty Hall of Famers wrote a letter to Don and Bud, urging the players and the league to use a mediator and forego a strike. They see the writing on the wall. Does Baseball see it? Will the players listen to their elders?

Here's Angela's 2004 profile from the Internet Archives. Here's Renee's profile via Google's cache, but that was taking forever to load.

5 Ks in One Inning!

Not only that, but he struck the same batter out twice in that same inning.

"Old White Guy Makes Racially Insensitive Remark"

On Walton, Madsen, and other white guys: The fan always cheers for the underdog, which a talented white player has become in the NBA. Or, maybe I'm off base and it's really because Luke has his dad, and Madsen has mad dance skillz.

I also have begun to run, but have literally no arches. There's some pain when I run, particularly in my knee and hip. I've been told that orthodics are my only answer. How true is this? Maybe inserts that I should try out?

Maybe we should just have a cage match free-for-all and include the Dahm Triplets (Warning: Pay site, may not be appropriate for work setting!)

If you remember, Ricky was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, and is now well on his way to being social. I think that this website is part of his recovery, and something that he wants to do. More power to him.

John Stockton will be back this season.

I am tired of hearing Bill Walton talk, period. In order to spice up the Jazz vs. Lakers games, make John wear Shaq's shorts and vice versa. Much like Shaq did a while back.

Among the believers

If you read the Hogette's web site, I found it interesting to learn that they were born out of a philanthropic role, rather than football fans. And it sounds like entertaining kids in hospitals is what interests them the most. I missed that in the VISA commercial.

Also, the OC count could get skewed by a great comment post. Why should a run-of-the-mill spofigure (I like that one the best) get a beefed rating because a quality post by another, superior spofigure, which would generate more comments than the original post?

"Mobsters on ice." (check out the last sentence of this article)

Here we go with another 'real sport' question. I know I am guilty of questioning pastimes (baseball, speed eating, etc.) as sports in the past, but I think enough is enough. We all know that ice skating is a soap opera. Do we keep having to bring this one up?

Bowden must go,

Sr. Sun Tan, I don't think I misunderstood the quote. But why even make any comparison? The two are not on the same scale. If anyone thinks it is, they need some help. If anything, 9/11 taught many people where sports belong; as entertainment. Not the end-all, be-all to life. I think that's why everyone is making a stink of the quote. The two (baseball & 9/11) do not belong on the same level.

Bowden must go,

No, maybe it isn't the worst he could've said, but he could've chosen better words. I think we all agree that baseball will go down with a strike, but I hate to think that it will be as devastating as 9/11. If baseball ends, it won't make me rethink the value my life, as I am sure many other did, after the attacks. No, Bowden shouldn't be fired, but he should've stepped up to the mic on the apology.

Is Lance Armstrong An Athelete?

It surprises me at the level of intellience (or lack thereof) exhibited by "sport experts/journalists." I am under the impression that sports journalists have dream jobs. How could you not love writing about sports, which presumibly got you into sports writing in the first place? Bill Simmons is a sports journalist that takes his job seriously, but still knows how to have fun. In all the commentary he writes, he never blindly makes statements, or shoots from the hip as Mr. Borges does here. Just by the level of detail he uses, respect is instantly gained. And his 'mailbag' columns show the respect his fans have for him. On another note, I am sick of the constant questioning of the definitions of sports and/or athletes. If you don't play pool, don't question their skills. If you don't swim, run, kick, hit, throw, chop, etc., get the hell out of here, cause we don't like you.

I'll play too. This should be fun.
