A Toss of the Dice, and History at Fenway. . .

For Justgary: I should have pointed out that the 75% was strictly against the Yankees and not the rest of the league. If I'm not mistaken, Pedro only won about 25% of his starts against the Yankees.

A Toss of the Dice, and History at Fenway. . .

As a Yankees fan, I was disappointed with the outcome of the series, but all three games were quite exciting. Boston's four homers in a row were a remarkable accomplishment. I did feel pretty good about the Yankees being able to rough up three of the best starters the Red Sox have to offer, and it wasn't until the Yankees "comic" relief offered up some jokes that the Sox were able to overtake them. As far as Dicey-K is concerned if the that's the best he's got to offer, he'll wind up just like Pedro- on the losing end of 75% of his starts. Can't wait for this weekend.

NFL Won't Let Church Show Game

The thing that seems to escape almost everyone that has commented is - what is a church doing showing a football game? I always thought that church was a place to go to worship God. If people want to watch football they can do that for free in the comfort of their own home. Having a dispute over something as absolutely stupid as this is a large part of what is wrong with society today. It seems that the people that should know better than to offend God by worshipping false idols in His house, don't. Meanwhile, everyone else is virtually oblivious to the premise that there is anything wrong with idol worshipping in a sacred place.

When franchises go bad.

As a kid I remeber all four of these franchises being among the tops in their respective sports, and even though I'm not really a Raiders fan, and definitely not an Orioles fan, it's saddening to see these franchises wallowing in not just mediocrity, but in the depths of futility. All of these franchises have storied histories, and I don't think the Blues belong in this category seeing that last year was the first time in 26 years to miss the playoffs- in fact they seem to be much improved this year. But as a Knicks fan it kills me to see them put such a lousy product on the court and one of the highest payrolls in the league. Strangely enough the common denominator for each of these teams the ineptitude of the front office, mainly the owners. Unfortunately, we're not likely to see these guys replace themselves to improve the situation, so it looks like we're stuck with losing until they die. It would appear the Raiders will be the first of these franchises to recover.

Former Nittany Lion faces murder charges.

Just a little ironic that a guy who went to school at Penn State might eventually graduate from the State Pen.
