The action of drinking alcohol is a choice. However, nobody chooses to be an alcoholic. Alcoholism is the choice made to drink, over and over. It is not a disease. It is a sequence of choices made by an individual.

It doesn't really sound like he'll be OK: From The Pittsburgh Channel: "According to a police source, Roethlisberger suffered a broken jaw, broke his left sinus cavity, suffered a 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, lost many teeth and has severe injuries to his knees from hitting the pavement. A plastic surgeon has been called in, the source said." What a vastly and impressively stupid young man.

Eh. Kind of cool but correlate their temps with the general temps in the home town.

That's really cool. I wish all MLS teams would have a similar recpetion, and I wish Seattle would get a MLS team.

Someone totally changed the wording of my drunken alarmist post. WTF. Was it Drew Rosenhaus?

It's only reporters and fans that talk about the importance of humility. It's such crap. It's pretty clear to me that being a cocky asshole can really help someone's athletic career. Of course it goes both ways but anyone who says that being arrogantly sure of yourself is never a helpful thing is pretty much lying.

Bah. There's no way a closer should ever win the Cy Young award. Not that there is any real Cy Young candidate in the AL this year, but still, at least it went to a starter.

ha, who knew? I guess you're in the DC market. That's a great story, or history of stories I guess.

I laughed when I read this. And then I felt badly, because suicide is not funny. But then I laughed a little bit again.
