"Juuuuust a bit outside."

I liked the part where after he 'threw' it, he's over there loosening up the shoulder like he wasn't properly warmed up. Of course that's why the 'throw' ended up where it did.

Lovie Smith becomes the first black head coach ......

I got a question for ya - who's the first black baseball coach to go to the World Series? Let's see, Frank Robinson was the first black manager, Cito Gaston was the first to win a World Series (and repeat), which I knew. Without looking it up, I'd have to say Gaston was also the first black manager. I can't think of anyone else between 1975 and 1992 it could be.

Lovie Smith becomes the first black head coach ......

One other thing . . . Will there be an uproar from the words "First BLACK head coach . . . " Instead of "First AFRICAN AMERICAN coach . . . "? That line written by the media, alone. shows where the race card is being played. Yeah, they (the media) seem to make a big deal about it. I suppose if they didn't, they wouldn't have much else to talk about (other than the game). I don't think there should be an uproar. If you heard Lovie Smith after the game, he mentioned himself as the first 'black' coach. Tony Dungy called himself 'African-American'. I think the bottom line is, you have two very good coaches, regardless of skin color, going to their first Super Bowl. Let's leave it at that.

Jackson, others shoot their way out of Indiana

TBH: that ND weed is probably purdy close to the Lake County weed I have access to. You know, fortified with all those Hammond/Gary mill minerals. Depends on the lake's current.

Now they have to live in Indiana. Unfortunate, perhaps, but I can't see it changing much. They probably have better weed in Indiana, anyway. Nah, there's a lot of that ditch weed that grows wild in some parts. It's somewhat unfortunate to live there, but it sure beats the hell out of living in Illinois. And yes, I have lived there, too. That's unfortunate!!

Lefty Yearns To Make It Right.

you seriously think that jim furyk is a better golfer than phil mickelson? YES! Funky swing and all. But hopefully with the loss of the he-hooters, that can be remedied.

Yes, I do too, enjoy watching Phil. It would be great to see him come back.

Lefty Yearns To Make It Right.

I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe this is his wake-up call, but he still has a LONG way to go to catch Tiger. Or, Jim Furyk for that matter. He's needed to shed some pounds for years, and to a point, equipment doesn't make a golfer. As long as it's properly fit to your swing, you can hit anything. Especially as a pro. The only reason he has new equipment is because Callaway just released a new line of Tour clubs (Tour Forged irons and FT-5 driver/fairways).

Who Showed Up? Was it Really Clutch Rex? Bears Move On.

By the way, did you ever notice that you very rarely see a Bears' Wide-receiver wide open??

Who Showed Up? Was it Really Clutch Rex? Bears Move On.

The defense has been slipping ever since Mike Brown and Tommie Harris went down. Not to mention the other guys who went down for a game here and there (Vasher and Tillman). they don't seem to have the swagger they had earlier in the season. The offensive line has to do a better job of containing the blitz. Seems to me the opposing defense gets thru way too easy when they blitz. Any reason why the Bears don't put Rex in the shotgun, especially in a blitzing situation? I understand that Olin Kreutz doesn't like the shotgun snap. But he's not the coach. Who's running the team? I think it would be beneficial to give Grossman that extra 1/2 second to analyze what's happening.

Michelle Wie Hits the Green

The only reason she gets noticed is because she is the only women's golfer who looks somewhat close to... well ... a woman. I don't know about that, Natalie Gulbis surely isn't going to require a pants check any time soon! ...ugly, fat, bull dyke: The new generation of women golfers are getting farther and farther away from that statement. I'm definitely not offended but, yes, facts are facts.

Ripken and Gwynn guaranteed to receive less than 100% of HOF vote.

As dumb as I might make it may sound, but it should be in the voting rule that you have to vote for SOMEBODY. This will prevent imbeciles like this Ladewski from the Daily Southtown from turning in blank ballots. It should be disallowed and thrown out. Then start with the ballots with actual votes on them. Being from the Chicago area, I vow from now on to use the Southtown sports section to clean up my dog's shite, permanently! And YES, take his ballot away if he refuses to vote and kick him squarely in the nuts. I'd take a drive over to the Southtown's offices to see that one. They're no too far away.

Broncos' Darrent Williams Is Shot Dead

Because of course, the proper response to a verbal altercation is to fire 11 bullets into somebody's car. Sure, if you're a pussy. If there was an altercation that was escalating, whatever happened to fighting with your fists? Seems like something from a bygone era. Rest in Peace. My thoughts and prayers to your family and friends.

The list might be incomplete. Though technically not TV shows, it's the only place I've ever seen 'em. The Three Stooges: Punch Drunks - 1934 Fright Night - 1947 Fling In The Ring - 1955 (essentially a remake of Fright Night) It doesn't get much better than these!

Zito Breaks the Bank.

As a lifetime White Sox fan, I was hoping that the CUBS would get Zito. The guy would get a stiff neck watching some monster home runs hit onto Waveland avenue. Oh well, maybe next time. posted by wdminott at 12:22 PM CST on December 29 Hell, if he signed with the Sox, he would have already been traded to the Rangers for Brandon McCarthy and 2 more prospects. That way Kenny ' the Tinkerer' Williams can still move Buhrle and Garland and continue the complete ruination of what was once a reasonably good team.

'Scuse me while I whip this out...

When in doubt, (I) whip it out!.... Got me a rock n roll band; it's a free-for-all!!! Uncle Ted, ca. 1976 If the dude whipped his schwance out in the middle of the sidewalk and took a squirt, instead of ducking around a corner, and double park on top of it?? What the hell is that? Anyone with a half of brain, even under the influence, is going to get out of the way. You know, duck around the side, or back of a building. Most of us have been there. Unless he was totally wasted, then he's just a dumb-ass.

The 2006 Dave Kingman Award

I nominate Jacque Jones for the Kingman Award. I just wish the Cubbies will snd him on his way so Matt Murton can be an everyday player. They should pick up Kenny Lofton for a stopgap until Felix Pie is ready.

The "Cancer Sucks" Ball Park Tour

Wow. Sad, but very inspirational. It's too bad it often takes death to hear about these stories, while we spend most of our time on this site commenting on the jackasses who abuse drugs, fire off weapons outside stripclubs, and generally live as if they are doing society a favor. Jeffrey makes me hope to get back to a time in my life when I enjoyed sports for the sport and wasn't impacted by some of the idiots who play them. Kids do look up to athletes, whether or not the pro's like or acknowledge the responsibility. The unselfishness of Jeff and his caring for others in spite of his own condition is truly inspiring. Sure made me count my blessings. Cancer sucks, indeed. That about sums it all up, wouldn't you say? Great posts, guys. I couldn't have done it better myself. Thanks.

Sports Illustrated's All-Time All-Star Team

There are three things wrong with these statements:?? #'s 1 & 2: So that means being the 'best' at your respective position is solely based on offense? The supposed shortcomings of Ryno when compared offensively are more than made up by his defensive attributes. Morgan simply does not compare if we're strictly comparing defense. Hell, there aren't too many that do. Let's face it, Morgan was the best of his time and Ryno was the best of his. If you put Joe Morgan on some of those shitty Cub teams of the 70s and 80s, he would be forced to hit all the time and some those numbers would not be where they are. Having Rose, Bench, etc. around you makes a HUGE difference in the way you approach an at-bat. I'm not saying Ryno is better or Morgan is better, but the numbers are really close and Ryno is worthy of mention along with Morgan. #3: That's a faux-pas on my part. I'd have to go with the back to back winner of Denny McClain. Same thing with my MVP pick. Wasn't shit before and certainly not after.

(I have no idea how Morgan didn't make S.I.'s list.) If Morgan's there, then Ryno definitely needs to be there. Their numbers are similar, with a nod to Ryno. The biggest difference is Morgan played on those good Reds and Phillies teams. Worst Cy Young winners?? How about Esteban Loiaza

NBA's Dirtiest players

Where does John Starks fit in?? I'm surprised Bill Cartwright hasn't been mentioned. Didn't seem to use elbows regularly, but at those key moments.... I think the only reason Anthony Mason and Xavier McDaniel lasted in the league as long as they did was for their thug antics.

Tiger's tale

As it turns out Tiger is not only a better golfer than everyone else he also happens to be luckier than everyone else. Luck and skill go hand in hand with each other. To be the best, there has to be some degree of luck involved.

First rule with pitchers is: Handle with care

What about Greg Maddux? 4500+ innings pitched; 17 consecutive seasons w/15 wins; 19 straight w/10; 328 wins; 3100+ K's. He definitely deserves mention alongside Niekro, Ryan, etc. A big part of the problem with today's pitchers is the majority of them are strengthening their arms far too much. They are losing a lot of flexibility. There are far too many Tommy John Surgery candidates these days. Their arm muscles are too tight. Pitchers of previous eras did not weight train like they do today. Also, pitching has also become way TOO specialized. Too many managers play the 'match-up' game. This is also an attribute to pitchers not lasting. Full pitching staffs cannot throw as many complete games as say, Ferguson Jenkins, or Jim Palmer threw in 1 season. Both of these guys pitched long careers and were way above average.
