im not sure if it was just me seeing this, but it seemed like there was only one down (third) that grossman actually took the time to look at the entire field. he was consistantly, on passing downs, only watching one reciever and waiting for him to get open. its as if he knows who is getting the ball before the play starts, whether that person is open or not. i saw it on several occasions. im not sure if it is because he is afraid to look over the whole field, for fear of losing track of where the pass rush is or what, but it became painfully obvious to me that he is sticking to the primary reciever far too often.

i myself am a black teen from chicago and i believe that the word is relatively inoffensive when used between friends. black or white, i think that if you know the person you are talking to well enough to call them your friend, then you should probably know how they will react to such a word and you go on that. while it may be a "cop out" there is nothing fundamentally wrong with censoring yourself around some, especially when you will be found offensive, and allowing yourself to speak more freely among others. i dont think that it is reasonable to think that this word can be rooted out of modern language, mainly because is has lost much of its taboo in several circles. it also could be construed as a freedom of speach issue. for instance, you go to a baseball game and sitting behind you is someone who is using the "f word" in nearly every sentance. you may say something to this man but there is not much you can do, bringing in the authorities aside, to make this person stop. i think that it would be better to just accept the word for what it has become rather than what it was and try to promote tolerance in other ways.

well, the "comedy central" is no longer a joke. they have the 2 best teams in the majors in my opinion (chicago and cleveland), and with detroit plaing the way they are, they will be tough to beat. and u can never count out minnesota. the cubs will choke for sure. i like the mets to get in. what remains to be seen is that any national league team can beat an american league contender. i think that the best team in the national league this season will be worse than any second or third place team in the american league. the yankees wont go anywhere this season. if they even make the playoffs, they will be a quick first round exit. other than oakland (the white sox killers) neither of the west divisions looks like they are capable of producing a contender this season. but then again it is still incredibly early in the season. im just waiting for the royals to shock the world and go on a 75 game winning streak and shut everyone, including myself, up. that would be something. oh, and buffalo, fuck the yankees.

its very interesting how much of a variety of different people we have on this site. there are many different beliefs and ideals and moral standings. we have the "Phuck Sensorship." and the "Somebody please escort the foulmouthed illiterates out of here." posts. so to the stuck-up tightwads that can't appreciate the occasional curse word i say, "fuck you." and to the dumbasses that have nothing to do for the post, i say "shut the fuck up." ...fuck.

not bad. way too religious for me. but not bad. great basketball player. i am very impressed with is abilities on the court. as for his writing....its not something he could make a living off of, but he does seem to have a fairly vast vocabulary and puts it to good use.

jonson- i could. u can argue all u want about the authenticity of this amazing feat, but there is no questioning that it is amazing. im still in disbelief about it. scoring 81 points in two games is thought of as having two great games. he did it in one. with both baylor and wilt's highest-scoring games, they were their team's offense. u baisically have to be to score that many points. kobe will never be as good as jordan in my mind, but he is the closest iv ever seen of heard of, selfish ego-maniac or not.

mcnabb is a much better than average qb in all aspects. iv seen him throw pinpoint passes through two defenders for the touchdown more than once...when he was healthy. and his running was superior...when he was healthy. even his awareness was far better than normal...well, u get the picture. if he can nurse himself back to old form, he should still be one of, if not the best all-around quarterback in the league. but in football, that is a big if.

what the fuck. he is either lying and is completely insane, or he wanted the publicity. u dont cut off ur nuts then pretend like its no big deal. i have dreaded sharp objects around my waist level for years now, and i cannot even picture what the scene was like at this social club. man: HEY EVERYONE, LOOK AT MY NUTS IN THIS BAG!!! fellow club members: OH MY GOD MAN, WHAT THE HELL IS WRING WITH U?? (one man runs up and kicks the man in his bloodied crotch and screams in delight as the man falls over and bleeds to death, while everyone else shrugs off the dying idiot and goes back to their business)

ozzie. there is a newspaper article from springfeild illinois about how ozzie came to the capitol building and spoke to the state reps. after he had made a quite heartfelt speech about how he felt very insignificant among the various politicains, and how he was actually nervous to be there, pictures were taken with him, the politician, and the world series trophy. there is an 87 year old representative who rarely spoke at meetings and has trouble even standing. ozzie spotted that she was not in line and rushed over to her and embraced her in a "bear hug", then had her hold the trophy and had a picture taken with her. the author, who works in the capitol building and is a friend of my father's wrote that it was the most touching thing he had ever seen in all his years there. if we are choosing SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR, then i consider ozzie as much of a well- respected sports figure as can be found anywhere.

haha. i was just voted cutest in my highschool. not to make u feel old or anything. /the cute kid. i think slater should open his own surfing school for minorities, delinquents, or downtrodden youth. it might contribute to the populairity of the sport. and then we can finally get off of the topic of having a lack of diversity in the sport.

they tried that with jenks in game one. there is no denying he was brilliant. the problem is that he is 23. he does not have the consistency of a player who has been in the league for 4-5 years. he threw wild when he came up and untill cooper could get to him, he was not well recived in my fair city.

in regard to the comment about clemens getting shelled, for clemens to have a 4.35 or 3.91 era, is not very good for him. however, if you were to look at the next 2 seasons in houston his era dropped significantly. (2.98 and 1.87). the al is not only a harder place to pitch, but consistantly has better all around players, DH excluded.

Chicago 41° 53' N 87° 38' W Boston 42° 22' N 71° 2' W i was pseaking in generalities. u are right. in the relative world that is not too far east. however in the major league baseball world, thats about as far east as you can go.
posted by 15yroldkid at 03:12 PM on October 23
and another thing. it is obvious to me that clemens is not the pitcher he used to be. not only because he has aged quite a bit, but, if you look back to before he moved to the national league, he was getting shelled. he was ready to retire, thinking that he was unable to continue the mark of excellence he was used to. the fact that he was able to be as good as he is in the national league is more proof that the american league is the better one. both hitting and pitvhing wise.

i have been reading everyones comments for a while now, and decided to join in. i am a 15 year old kid from the south side of chicago and a die hard sox fan. there is no doubt that this series is big for both teams and their cities. in regard to the consistant beligerant comments about the white sox (in former posts), it just goes to show the incredible bias towards the east coast. as i peruse the posts throughout the season about the white sox's rise to the top, it strikes me as odd that no one has written a post about this. sorry about the off topic rant.
