ESPN reported that he ran the timing of his announcement by Accenture first. The company said that they liked the timing as a good intro into coverage of their event.

Fan Leaves Stands in Ugly Confrontation with David Beckham

According to FIFA rules national call up takes precedent over any club play. Most thought he was at the end of his career and would not be playing for England in 2010.

Well everyone was wrong. Beckham is passing up a lot of cash to get himself in position to represent his country.

I think that trumps playing for the Galaxy...

Big East Gets Three No. 1 Seeds in NCAA Tournament

What is the affect of having conference expansion? Marquette, Cincy, Depaul and others have joined power conferences. Lately the Mid-Majors havee't been as good IMO. BCS conferences have been gobbling up those guys who built up some of those less known schools.

Bonds in the clear?

Here's a photo Bonds time line of historic homeruns starting in 1986. It didn't appear he got huge until somewhere between '98 and '01.

Interestingly enough, Babe Ruth started his career at 185lbs and ended it at 250lbs At one point near the middle he was a muscular 225.

Bonds in the clear?

Actually Bonds biggest gains were in the years between 1993 and'96. He gained about 40 pouneds when he started a weight training program and hired a nutrionist. Some have said his hat size changed, but that is not true according to the equipment manager of the Giants. Fact is that until recently weight training was considered unwise for baseball players.

Bonds in the clear?

He is facing 10 counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice. I believe that if the "clear" is legal the perjury charge will go away.

Ultimate Fighting Robs The Cradle

As someone who has been working in kids soccer as a coach, referee and administrator for the past 9 years I will say this. Many kids are in competitive team sports for the wrong reasons. When they are put in individual sports and/or contact sports my experience is that over half kids shouldn't be doing it. What parents do their very young kids is not helpful to their families or their childs developments.

I would suspect that the international fields today are much stronger and more competitive than back in the '40s and '50s.

Rotisserie baseball draft Saturday

I like the SABR stats and Rotisserie Leagues (with the exception of WHIP) does not use those. I love to play ESPN Baseball Challenge which is based on SABR scoring! We could set up a group there if anyone is interested. In any event watch out for the DenZelko Shooters!

How to Tell When a College Basketball Game is Out of Reach

14 points down with three minutes to play is only 73% safe? Should be more like 95% IMHO. I like James baseball work though.

NCAA tourney is the best, but it could be even better.

The opening game is good...it gives two unknown teams a chance to be on TV.

Union to examine why Bonds has no offers

Bonds has the best eye in baseball. A team would be crazy not to take him. Plus he puts the meat in the seats...home and on the road.
