Posted Monday December 12, 2011, About: Respect for Tebow the QB still lacking
I have always said football players are the dumbest of athletes. Here's more evidence - all Barber had to do for the Bears to win was fall down, he had two opportunities to do just that, and he couldn't figure out a way to get that done.
Posted Friday December 02, 2011, About: Red Sox may pursue Hershiser for staff
Please, Bobby, please, hire Orel. I don't want that sanctimonious hypocrite in a position of influence over my Dodgers. They have suffered enough.
Posted Wednesday November 09, 2011, About: The NFL's most disliked player
"By only asking PETA members and racists."
Really? So you and everybody else think Quarterback Dog Killer is a nice guy? Well, you and everybody else except his mother, as I recall. She's probably a racist too - right?
Posted Monday August 29, 2011, About: Heat to blame for Beltre's hamstring
Sacrifice a virgin? In Rick Perry's Texas, which leads the nation in teen pregnancy? Don't expect Beltran to do the hard work that would take.
Posted Monday June 13, 2011, About: LeBron felled by nerves
Check out the free throws. At 79-72 the Heat missed numbers 11,12,and 13 (two by James) and a chance to get within four with lots of time left and the easiest points to take - seems like a choke to me.
Posted Sunday June 12, 2011, About: Defenses cheating in on Ichiro
Being the only major league hitter on a major league team for more than a decade would tend to wear you down.
His stats will improve as the year goes on, but he is unlikely to reach the heights of his first decade.
One wonders how much worse the epicly bad Mariners would have been without one of the best players of a generation, all by himself, bulking up their stats on both sides of the ball.
Posted Tuesday June 07, 2011, About: Hershiser joins team looking to purchase Dodgers
Please, please, no. The two worst sanctimonious hypocrites in Dodger history. Garvey will bring in a young cheerleading squad and Hershiser will demand hymns before games and at the seventh-inning stretch - all while squeezing every nickel out of the club and into their own pockets.
Posted Wednesday May 04, 2011, About: Harper batting .500 since April 21
#9 - You missed his recent ejection(s) and the comment from mlb's chief evaluator that he had never spoken to a scout who didn't intensely dislike the kid. Milton Bradley II, here we come.
Posted Wednesday April 27, 2011, About: Murray makes habit of not shaking
And the choke-prone Sharks find another way to distract themselves. They are the same losers, even if Thornton finally got a fortunate bounce.
Posted Sunday February 27, 2011, About: Wainwright injury another blow for Pujols
The bigger point is that if St. Louis doesn't think it can compete with the staff it has, why would the team want to add $28-30 mill a year to the payroll?
It looks as if the ramifications of Wainwright's loss, on both sides of the contract ledger, make it much more likely Pujols will be moving on.
Posted Sunday November 07, 2010, About: Michael Vick to Redskins?
Quarterback dog killer, a bunch of money and the Republicans. Sweet Washington dreams are made of this.
Posted Sunday November 07, 2010, About: Toronto yawning over Bills games
The Bears are far from unwatchable - a potential train wreck is transfixing.
Toronto has no passion for the NFL, or MLB and the Leafs' support is just a bad habit become addiction.
Toronto has passion for Toronto, and fads, which neither the Bills nor the NFL are. Little chance they get a franchise and no chance they will support one if some big-bucks dummy spends enough to actually land one.
Now, if there was a league for cities that were almost up to par with Toronto, Torontonians would be all over that franchise.
Posted Tuesday November 02, 2010, About: The Big Miss? Shaq admits free throws hurt legacy
There is no arguable point about Wilt being number one. He is, inarguably, number one.
Posted Sunday August 29, 2010, About: Will NHL snub 2014 Sochi Olympics?
The IOC is among the most corrupt business organizations on the planet. Cancel those stupid, wasteful games and it will add luster to the world championships and Canada/World cups.
Vancouver cost we taxpayers something like $10 billion, much of it for comfort food and things for, "dignitaries," and Socchi is already double that in money taken from much poorer citizens than we.
The hosts lose money, the hype overwhelms any connection to sports, and the cheating, from bribes by hopeful hosts to drugs to crooked judges take almost all the joy out of the event.
I do like the opening and closing ceremonies, but they don't cost billions.
For the rest, If Buttman holding NHL players out of the games, wherever they are, hurts the IOC, especially if it kills the IOC, I will toast him every day for the accomplishment.
