I know for a fact that I don't have the touch to throw as well as I could before my surgery, so it's incredibly impressive that he can continue to do it at such a high level.

I have the same issue and have had the same surgery Peyton had, and he's spot on. I heard the same thing from various doctors, and I can tell its tough to deal with for a long time. Now, it's just the new normal.

This should make it very hard for Liverpool to move his... poisoned fruit and all that. There's no way they could get the cash they would require to move him right now. Thank goodness that they botched Arsenal attempt to activate his buyout clause failed.

That wasn't a match as much as it was a medical procedure.

That huge swath of blue south of Atlanta should have been taken into account by the Braves I'd think.

Well played, Cleveland fans, well played.

Now if we could just get Atlanta a team. Maybe they could play in Turner Field.

Still my favorite player. Great read.

As an Arsenal fan, I actually blame Wenger, not the "big wigs". It was made abundantly clear that there was money to spend this summer. And Arsene has not. Now, they barely have a squad in advance of the champion's league qualifiers after injuries on Saturday.
His head should be on the block.

Good for him, the Galaxy, MLS, and professional sports as a whole. I wish him every success, including being good enough for Brazil.

Somehow I missed this entirely. Tuned in to catch the last 3 laps though. It's a good looking track, but I'll have to take everyone else's word on how it races. How was the crowd?

Wow. ACC basketball really hasn't been the same since the last round of expansion (or, one could argue, since the expansion got rid of an all home an home schedule), but this is still kind of shocking.
Which team will get the newspaper treatment in the Big 10?

How are they going to play baseball on a cricket ground? The dimensions and layout are a bit different to say the least (not to mention dirt for the infield).

Atlanta by 2 runs.
Oakland by 3 runs
Bonus - Medlen (ATL)
Triple Crown - Jason Heyward (2 RBI)

Hmmm. I wonder if FIFA will take a note of this.

I never thought I would witness a triple crown winner in today's game. Well done Miggy.

Braves fans are going to have a number of trips to make to the HOF over the next few years. It really underlines how lucky I've been to have had the pleasure of seeing Maddox, Glavine, Smoltz, and Jones all play live.

I can't believe the track was in good enough shape to complete the race after that explosion and fire.

Donald Bradmon? Not sure how he'd stack up against fast bowlers though.
Ted Williams 1941? He'd get his hits, but would it be enough in the polo grounds against someone like Walter/Randy Johnson.

I was suprised at how far many of these players fell in the draft, but I suppose the importance of building a team that would function caused a bit of that. (Maybe that's why my fantasy teams perform the way they do: i.e, poorly.)
posted by flannelenigma at 09:22 AM on January 27
It's interesting that so many current players make the list. I need to peer more closely to see which interesting omissions there are. Tony Adams is one that comes immediately to mind.

So Tim Thomas is an asshat. News at 11.

Fascinating read. The preponderance of anonymous sources always makes me a bit leery, but I guess I can understand them in this case.

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Verlander pitch more than once in a series.

How about a word for Pujols, who absolutely carried the Cards all month. In the end, the Braves bullpen just ran out of gas. They were so good for so long this season, but had to pitch way to many innings.

And I say that as a fan.

I've just renewed the SpoFi league.

2. Choose private league

Good luck everyone! I'm Hamburglar SV, as per usual.
I think it was time for Bradley to go. Not that he did a poor job, but I think 8 years in charge is just too much, and to use Grant Wahl's term, the team had become stale.
Now the big question is whether Klinsmann will be given the authority he asked for the last couple of times he was approached, which US Soccer ultimately balked at.

After losing to the US in the Women's World Cup today, the North Korean coach claimed 7 or 8 players had been struck by lightening in training in the run up to the cup, thus limiting their performances.

He's going to have a lot of work to do keeping all those egos in check.

I'm guessing we won't see him in the major leagues (at least in the US) again.

He fought tooth and nail against the team moving out of Atlanta. What a weaselly thing to say.
That's not how we see it in Atlanta. Here's a local look.

From the Hawks point of view, Teague was a bright spot, but Chicago just had too much depth.

They tweaked the logo design aside from the colors a bit too (and improved it). Scroll down to see them superimposed.

Hawks leave a pair of tickets for Jameer Nelson for their first game against the Bulls. It must have worked for them, since they upset the Bulls.

Did you see Dalglish tell Wenger to "Fuck Off"? I don't know that I'd want to shake his hand after that either.
