Doesn't matter - the Yankees are and have been cursed for a long time. They are stuck in New York!!! Go, win, anyone but the Yankees! Good for that worker creating a prank - prosecuting someone for a bit of fun would be crazy! Look at all the good publicity it brought the Yanks who always need something good said about them. Leave the prankster alone.

INTERCEPTIONS! What quarterback has not had significant ones? I like "blaming the receiver." Not only is Favre a great player in this game, he is a great model for young people (and older for that matter). Best wishes and all blessings. Enjoy!

This is exactly what is most wrong about baseball - now it is mostly about money (I don't say "all" because the game is still wonderful for those who love to watch those who love to play) I like the suggestion about Doublemint and Juicy Fruit. But let's not call it "DoubleJuide Field!"

chicobangs: "I can't help but remain cynical..." Well, Mr. Cynical, have you gone there and looked at the still remaining devastation? Do you realize that EVERY DAY since Katrina happened, there have been volunteers there working to help bring back New Orleans, or at least to provide some livable space to the thousands of people whose lives were torn apart? Maybe it is your turn to go - spend some of your vacation time. Your entire perspective on the human race will change - you will have hope for humanity when you leave.

right, THX-1138. I have no idea. I would rather exchange ideas about sports than watch TV (unless good sports were on). If you don't like it, don't read it, it is very simple. In America we all have choices. Isn't that good??

curlyelk - Hoosiers are too cool to do such a thing. These guys (especially DJ White) have been through lots of changes and lots of difficult situations. They do what they have to do, and they did it to Northwestern as well. (If I am correct they now share the Big Ten Conference lead - not bad for kids so beleagurered. The word I keep hearing: "buyout" bothers me. Sampson RESIGNED. Yes, he did so under tremendous pressure. He did so as he said for the benefit of the program. I believe that because now they can move ahead without this hanging over their heads as well as hanging over Sampson's. Now the accusations hand over him ALONE. Remember, they are simply accusations. The man has been vilified way too much over some extra phone calls that MIGHT have been made. There are 100 other college coaches that say they have done the same as Sampson. Hmmm. Might there be a scapegoat here? Go Hoosiers!

apoch-BW has been moving, but he was at Detroit for a long time. I know, I am a Pacers fan and as such, need to keep my senses about Detroit, just about every year. However, it is not a particularly good year to be a Pacer fan, but they have been great for a long time - maybe this is the time out they needed to get in a good draft position.

I am a long time IU fan, and I hope that they do NOT fire Sampson. He is personable enough that even I have had the opportunity to talk to him. I think he is caught in an NCAA attempt to redefine what "contact" means. AND I don't think DD has the skills to coach a team the caliber of IU. He seems nice enough, but he never seems too exciting. Go Hoosiers!

Sampson is caught in this stupid attempt to define what a "phone call is" now that there is text messaging and email and cell phones. He is a great person, and very ethical. These "infractions" have already been in the news for months, and IU has already imposed sanctions as a result of these. This is simply the NCAA follow-up to something that has been in the news a long time. BORING!!! Let him be - GO HOOSIERS!
