Woods closes out the year with a seven-shot win

Tiger is scary. He will have the best season ever next year. He has finally been able to replace the loss of his father and hugging him after matches with a new baby to hug after matches. It is great for him and will be great for golf for years to come.

Bill Parcells signs a four year deal

Parcells won't give any "boost" to the Phins this weekend. He was in New England in what seems like forever ago. No one cares anymore. The only boost he can give the phins is next year in the free agent market and the search for a new coach. Bye Bye Cam.

Red Sox brass meeting with Matsuzaka's agent

There is no CAP as you guys keep saying. There is the amount of money that the RedSox are willing to pay and that can be as much as they are willing to pay until the MLB gets a set spending limit. And I would have gone after someone like Barry Zito before I would go after this guy. I mean 51mill just to talk about a contract. Please.

Florida Will Face Ohio State in BCS Championship Game

I sincerely think neither one is anything to tremble over. One is overrated, the other is still really young. Leak isn't the best. I never said that. Tebow isn't the fastest out there. I never said that. I mearly said that the gators can change the gamplan very easily against a defense before they can make a change. And it isn't like Leak had a horrible season.

Florida Will Face Ohio State in BCS Championship Game

I agree, they haven't played a team with 5 good wideouts but has OSU played a team that has as much speed and strength on the line as Florida? Have they played a team that has an offense that uses 2 QBs and just changing that QB changes the entire gameplan? Troy Smith has never faced as much pressure as he is going to face on Jan. 8th. It is going to be an awsome game and it is a shame we are bashing any of these teams for having great seasons.

Florida Will Face Ohio State in BCS Championship Game

If they are going to do a playoff system I say do it to were each conference is represented by their champ. That would be the easiest no bicker way about it and if there is an odd number their could be a wild card like team that could be a team like Michigan.

Florida Will Face Ohio State in BCS Championship Game

I don't think it is going to be as bad of a game as you all think it will be. Michigan had there chance and they lost. Case closed. Florida played the toughest scheduel in the toughest conference in the NCAA. And with the earlier comment- That crybaby coach at Florida kissed alot of ass the last week. he was doing what any other coach would do in the same situation. He felt his team deserved a shot and apperantly his kissing ass has worked and so it has for the other coaches that do so.

'Don't You Need at Least One Good Quarterback to Make a Controversy?'

Pocket quarterbacks are a dying breed Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Drew Brees, Rex Grossman, Trent Green, Mark Brunnel, Tom Brady, Marc Bulger, Chad Pennington, Matt Haselbeck, Philip Rivers, Drew Bledsoe, Jon Kitna, and Joey Harrington are the group of QB's that I would consider "pocket QB's" that are the starters on there team. A certain type of pocket QB's are dying out though. The one's that just stand in one spot of the pocket are done such as Drew Bledsoe. The one's that are able to utilize the pocket and not have to roll out but can make things happen in the pocket are the great ones. Scrambling QB's like Michael Vick are amazing to watch but they don't win championships. John Elway QB's that are able to move in the pocket and by some time are the one's that are remebered as great.

Piniella finds a wallet in Chicago.

I am not saying that Izturis would take Jeters spot. He could be moved to third. And the awsome comments I understand are not needed. They aren't awsome yet. Awsome should be reserved for guys like Clemens and Maddux. But Wood and Prior do have the stuff to get them to the awsome point. And comparing them to Pavano isn't fair. Pavano got injured for getting in a car wreck and not telling anyone. Wood and Prior get injuries for real baseball realate injuries. Prior got hit with a ball this year and Wood doesn't have proper mechanics but is working on them and has been conditioning to stay in shape. I am not saying this is exactaly what will happen but it is something I am sure that the Yankees would take a look at.

If the Cubs where able to trade for A-Rod and give up some of our injury prone players we could be good. Wood and Prior are awsome pitchers with awsome stuff but too many injuries. If the Yankees would be willing to take a chance on them that could be perfect. The Cubs could even throw in a player such as SS Cesar Izturis. The Cubs do have the prospects to make it. Also, Imagine the Cubs with this kinda lineup C Michael Barrett 1B Derek Lee 2B Ronny Cedeno 3B Aramis Ramirez SS Alex Rodriguez CF Juan Pierre RF Jaque Jones LF Matt Murton

Okay, Lou is good. I still would prefer Girardi. He managed to almost take the team witht the lowest payroll in the majors to the playoffs. He is an ex-Cub, and he managed a team last year. Where was Lou all year(by the looks of him working on his tan)? Could end up being good because Lou is what we need. He will get in the players faces unlike Dusty. He will also argue with the umpires keeping his players in the game. Dusty would go out and have an emotional talk with them and then later have some tea. Not enough emotion to manage a struggling team like the Cubs.

UT tells woman she cheers too much

Okay, she wasn't drinking or using profanity? How can she be a fan of a team in the SEC then? Anyway, I think it is awsome what she is doing. She is going to a football game to cheer on her team the way she wants to. If she wants to act like an idiot then let her. The only problem I have is with the Pay them back chant. Not at all called for. The way I see it as long as she isn't knocking somebodys drink over or knocking other things over I think it is fine. The Gators cheer pretty well too, so I don't think they would mind having her in the Swamp. Better than going to Death Valley and cheering for the Tigers I think.

Hit-happy Mets pepper Dodgers into submission

No yankees once again. Can't really have a reaction anymore. It seems to be the norm for them now. Because of my age they have never really been the "Evil Empire" Since I was born the Yankees have won the world series 5 times. They have finished with a losing record 3 times. 5 series titles is a lot but with how much people hate them I would expect a lot more. I am not a Yankees fan though. I am a Cubs fan and I would love for us to have just one of those titles. But it isn't happening anytime soon. Go Athletics!

Why would you even think of something like that. It is just not right. It is like saying "I hope they hit the QB so hard he ruins his shoulder!" It is bad juju.

Sports Illustrated's All-Time All-Star Team

Except that all wins are not the same. A pitcher can throw 6 innings of 8 hit, 5 run ball and get a win, while another can throw 9 innings of 0 hit, 0 run ball and not get a win. But it is still a win though! You can give up ten runs and still get a win! You can give up no earned runs and pitch a perfect game but your team lose. A win is a win, doesn't matter if you are a bad pitcher on a good team(Randy Johnson this year) or an excellent pitcher on a bad team(Roger Clemens this year) if you get the win you got the win. Wins are what matter and if you get wins I want you.

The Hoserís NFL Picks, Week Four

This week it wasn't Culpepper's fault though. What about Marty Booker droping a pass that would have left an extra minute on the clock. What about Chambers coming out because of cramps on what was one of the more important plays of that drive. What about the D giving up 17 points to the Texans. What about Ronnie Brown only getting 44 yards on the ground. Too many things went wrong to point it a Daunte and too many things went wrong so you can point at Mularkey.

The Marlins have already said he is gone and I can't think of anyone I would rather see putting up a lineup card for my Cubs than Joe. He will yell, and scream, and get mad like the old catchers used to do when Joe played. Baker needs to go back to SanFran and try to keep up what Felipe has been keeping together.

Young to start at dallas

Well, I can't blame them since Collins has looked out of shape and he was sitting on his couch all summer while Young was conditioning and learning his new playbook. The Titans season is all ready over anyway and I don't think anyone was really expecting anything big out of them this year anyway. Go ahead and get him experience and let him get a few wins under his belt this year and watch him just be amazing next year.
