Auto Erotic

Key questions are why Griffin wasn't tested for alcohol and why the officers drove him out of the city to his home in St. Paul. Griffin also received tickets for not having a license and inattentive driving. Perks of the Rich and famous.

Texas Rangers owner going Cuban?

The Mav's seemed to have gotten plenty of good calls during the Spurs series. Is this considered make up calls?

Miami Wins the NBA Championship.

Congrats to the old timers. It's nice to see athletes reach a goal after years of trying. In particular Payton and Walker.

NBA Owner Feels the Heat

Cuban means right but does wrong. His antics, constant complaining, and attitude are wearing on the fans. Dallas should win in seven so stop with the whining and leave it to Bill Parcells.

Heat sweep at home.

As a Texan I normally pull for the Local Team . Cuban's arrogance and brash attude have caused me to pull for the Heat. Cuban and Jerry Jones are both owners that seem to want all the credit.

D-D-D-Dallas and the JET.

Will the team that defeated the pistons show up? If so, we may have a series on hand. I was waiting for Wade to turn it on in the 4th quarter.

Cuban: For the first time in my life, I'm speechless

Seems to me the talk a month ago was the Pistons would run to a title uncontested. The Heat put that talk to rest and now the Mav's are the favorite to blow out the Heat. The way the season has gone, I wouldn't be surprised to see a seven game series with the biggest TV market comming out on top. Heat in seven

Too much of Parcells rubbed off on Cuban. Avery Johnson on the other hand is a class act.

Labron is s truly a great ball player, person, and role model. Nike and the NBA are putting him on a pedistal that may change the series to a highly contested round 2. I like the kid, but I am pulling for the pistons to stop the overkill of selling " King James."

Spurs Hand Kings Worst Playoff Loss Ever

My money is on Artest not finishing the series without some a suspension or big time fine. He is a jerk throwing intentional elbows or jabs to hurt people. His doctors need to increase his meds.

Can the Pistons be Stopped?

Detroit has been healthy this year. An injury to a starter may be one of two reasons that can stop the Pistons. The other reason is a healthy Spur team with a healthy Tim Duncan.

Back to Basketball... who's the MVP?

My three votes go to Steve Nash, Steve Nash, and finally Steve Nash. I am not a Suns fan. I know hands down he makes the Suns dangerous every time he touches the ball.

NFL Curtails End Zone Celebrations

We are creating a generation of arrogant athletes. Case in point being the comerical by the gatorade sports drink. The young man who is walking like he stepped in some s---. The young lady staring down the male who just ran over her on the basketball court. I'm not a prude, it just makes for our kids wanting to emulate pompus behavior. I did like Chad Johnson's riverdance. He doesn't go overboard with his celebrations.

Options Narrow as Chargers Rule Out Tagging Brees

Drew Brees is a native Texan, a proven winner with years of quality football ahead of him, a class act, and a gutsy performer. These are the reasons the Idiot Bill Parcells will not go after him. Dallas will not win till they get rid of the Tuna.

Barkley, Vitale among 16 Hall finalists

I wish the Presidential election had this much attitude and concern. Then maybe we wouldn't be paying $2.50 a gallon. Irvin was clutch and he helped the cowboys win 3 rings. Trouble off the field may have cost him dearly. I hope he gets in.

NFL Network To Air 8 Regular Season Games

It'a all about the money. I'm fortunate in respect to being able to foot the bill for entertainment. I will not spend a dime on this bull. Strength comes in numbers, and if we band together we can show the networks our displeasure, they may re-think this poor decision. First the price of gas goes up for no reason other than lining the pockets of the few, and now sports entertainment jumps on the bandwagon. It may be time to turn off the game on TV and take the wife to sunday movies!

Don't count out San antonio. San Antonio outdrew Baton Rouge 60,000 to 30,000 in attendance. The players from the TV interviews seen to favor the SA scene. Tom Benson has a major car dealership in SA. Red McCombs has the magic touch and the local media is very positive in a possible last minute charge. We bent over backwards to see to the needs of the Saints as well as the displaced New Orleans Citizens. Don't Count us out .
