NBA brawl in the stands repeated

I agree about the situation getting out of control if players go in to the stands, but in the "real world," I can't picture a husband/wife thinking about the danger or consequences before trying to protect their wife/husband in a bad situation. Therefore, I don't think Davis was really thinking about how dangerous he could've made the situation. But, ideally, a professional basketball game is more of a controlled environment than the "real world." I don't think banning alcohol will solve the problem. That brings a whole set of problems with people arriving intoxicated or sneaking it in. There is more malice and hostility in those two effects. JMD82 said it well too. If they ban alcohol, people will make a point to be even more obnoxiously drunk than they would've gotten at the game, because they don't agree with the rule. Yeah, and why can't they reserve a section just for player's families? Maybe there is something about this that won't work that I'm missing...

Lions fire Steve Mariucci.

There is something about the Lions that makes them even more pathetic than the teams with worse records...

The NBA's ugliest Uniforms

The coolest thing about those teal Pistons' uniforms was Grant Hill (not injured).

The Million Dollar Kick

Did they test him for performance enhancing drugs? Any college student, such as myself, would kill for JUST 21K, let alone 40 years of it.

WS Ratings suck! Thank you, FOX!

Yeah, I don't think the teams were super exciting this year, and I think ratings are a little deceiving. The games really need to start earlier. The commentating was boring as Hell. I was watching a tape of the last game of the 1984 World Series (on tape because I wasn't alive in '84), and I remember the commentator (must've been Ernie right?) would say periodically, "Wow, just listen to the sounds of the game." And they would just shut up for a couple minutes. It was cool. It was also cool because the Tigers won. I'm a Cubs fan anyway, but I really liked Chip Caray and his partner before they were split up. They got excited about baseball whether it was the Cubs or the other team making a good play.
