I also cannot see ND winning against either Bama or UGA, but it is nice to me to see them in the discussion again. I'm happy to see those who spoke of irrelevance for Notre Dame not long ago to get their serving of crow.

Read this a few days ago, and I think Craggs is more than a little off base here. Rice was nothing more than a product of his time. If you were in New York, he had something like fifteen other papers he was competing with for your eyeballs. If you were in most other areas of the country, there was little other means to get any information about the goings on in the world of sport. The flowery prose was endemic to the era. Many historical figures do not come off particularly well when viewed through a prism filtered with our current realities and sensitivities. It seems rather unfair to cast them in that light.

The man deserves more than a couple of dots. While I was just a bit too young to see him on the mound, I do know of his work in the booth. It was of the first order. He is beloved to many Indians fans. My condolences to his family.

I am in agreement with budman 13. I recently witnessed a rather non-competitive game, (not pro) and a defensive back made a tackle in the backfield. It went from 1st and 10 to 2nd and 12. He jumped and twisted and jived like he'd saved the world. Actually he was a member of the of the team getting creamed. Put some mustard on that hot dog, fool! Your team is still losing by 21 points! What on Earth do you have to dance about?

I'm no Gumbel fan, but I see this remark as being refreshing and all too accurate. NFL contracts are structured in such a way to allow useless agents to crow, but are in reality basically Monopoly money deals, as anything after the second or third season is extremely unlikely to be attained by the player who signs the contract. Bryant called a spade a spade, and the No Fun League is likely to have his ass for dinner as a result.

Eldin Auker was right. the old days were different. The plate did belong to the pitchers, the mound was higher, and the ball wasn't wound quite as tight. Gives me even more respect for those that were great hitters in a vastly different game than we see today. The ump has made his call, Eldin, and you are safe at home. RIP, brother.

Taking someone's future away my ass! That punk threw his future away when he threw that bat. I hope his suspension is at least for the balance of the season, and would prefer not to see him next year either.

Bad day my ass, many of us had to deal with his sorry ass for weeks at a time. He tipped nobody well, acted like a deservedly priveleged asshole, and made constant demands for services that were not even part of our job description at the time. I'll not be listening to those of you who only heard him behind a microphone. I'll also not miss him.

I knew Gowdy when I was a bellman at a Cheyenne Hotel 30 years ago. He wore a neck brace, looked 80 at the time and well and truly a dick to all of the help less than the managers. As a D list celebrity from near there, they even named a state park after the asswipe. Arreviderci, dickhead.

Yes, ESPN did show a lot of Canadian football back in the early 80's when they were fairly new. A very entertaining game. They also showed quite a bit of Australian rules football.

That's an odd thing to say. I don't think so. Many of the latin players have a language barrier, and not enough effort has gone into clarification of what is and isn't acceptable with these players OR with sports officials in their home countries. Also, local testing that could spot potential problems isn't done in those countries because the cost is prohibitive for them. Perhaps MLB could invest a bit more on education and a bit less on hammers.

Well, the Comish has spoken. It's a 20 game suspension and an undisclosed fine. Not strong enough in my opinion.

He is moving to NBC because MNF is moving to ESPN, which is a cable network. On air broadcasts have larger viewer bases, and can thus compensate him more to his liking.

wfrazerjr, I must contest your comment about Koufax being one of the top pitchers. I find him to be a marginal HOF member at best. 12 seasons and only 165 wins in an era of 4 man rotations are not exactly awe inspiring. Check his career stats and rankings. You find a mediocre pitcher who came on with 4 good seasons and faded by 30 years of age. Comparisons to Gale Sayers, and more recently, Terrell Davis come to mind. A sympathy vote for a promising but short career does not a true Hall of Famer make.
