Sacramento Kings Considering LA Move

They should get Sleepy's as their main sponsor and call themselves the California Kings.

Review of Springsteen's Super Bowl Halftime Show

Springsteen is weak. That was a terrible performance. It was a good opportunity to use the bathroom.

Patriots to Honor Booed Teenager

Yeah, the classy Pats fans wouldn't have booed a kid wearing a Colts jersey. The kid was old enough to understand why fans boo someone wearing the jersey of their rival....its more of a joke than anything. Doesn't make it right, but it happens.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

I like the "Red Sox can't compete with the Yankees in the FA market" crap. Why can't they? They have the second highest revenues in baseball. They can compete if they want...their ownership apparently just has a different attitude about what to do with their profits than the Yankees do. I don't like either team, but I am not crying for the Red Sox in the $$ competitiveness department, that's for sure.

These are your 2006 MLB Some-Stars!

Loretta "only" has 3 errors because he has no range. If it isn't within 5 feet of him, he doesn't get there.

Rockies rookie shortstop clarifies how he was injured

Luckily he didn't choke on Todd's meat. Then he would really get a ribbing.

Three-pointer is too close for comfort

I agree that the three point line is too close. It has definitely made the game boring. It has made point guards that can actually move the ball and get other players open less common. Now guards just get the ballat the top of the circle and shoot. I watched Nash last night, he got the ball at the three point line and instead of shooting, penetrated and dished the ball to Stoudamire for a dunk. This seems to be less and less comoon in the NBA, probably because of the closer three point line in college.

IT THROWS THE LOTION AT THE BASKET

He is 36. He should've hung 'em up after last season. He was good in the early 90's....

You think an article written by an owner would be uninformed? I completely disagree - biased maybe, but certainly more informed than you or I.

Thanks GSPM, that was my point. OK, maybe one or two teams would've been above the cap, pretty immaterial, you could grandfather them for one season at the number they were at if you wanted. But to make the NHL interesting you need to go back to about 22/23 teams like in the early 90s. At most, 2 teams in California and one team in Florida. Goodbye Atlanta, Caolina, Florida, Nashville, Anaheim, Phoenix, Columbus. I want the Adams Divison, Patrick Division, Norris Division Smythe Division, like the good old days when the NHL was on equal footing with the NBA. I believe you have to make a few rule changes (get rid of center ice stripe, etc) but the game is good and just needs to be in cities that care so they are not subsidizing places that dont.

The more I think about it the dumber it sounds... they locked out the players and demanded that they basically play for commission - but not commission that they earned themselves, but the commission that the owners made by running their businesses properly... things the players have no control over whatsoever. I hear all this about how most of the small fry players in the NHL (including people I know) just want to play, but at least in this case, Goodenow was right not to let it happen. The players are the most to blame. The cap was going to be higher than at least 25 teams payrolls, and with a roll back of salaries likely higher than every teams payroll. I hope they enjoy that most people don't miss hockey and that they can now play for the Idaho Steelheads for $400/week. Stupid.

Icing the Kicker Works

It is definitely interesting. You knew it had to have some effect, but reducing the odds of making the kick by that much is pretty significant.
