Steelers Won Super Bowl XL

Didn't make the plays? They did make the plays but every time they did, it was called back by the idiots! I'm not a fan of either team, but I am a fan of GOOD officiating... I really think they had too much of an effect on the outcome of this game agreed. the Refs were waving their terrible towels enough for everybody also agreed. Now for my comment: I know this in no way affected the out come of the game, but (referring to the call near the end of the game), how do you get called for illegal block or whatever when you (Hasselbeck) are trying to tackle the guy with the ball? How do you block a blocker?

113!

Wow. That's very impressive. As has been mentioned, that girl just paid for her college education. I bet no one who was at that game will soon forget it. On an absolute level, Wilt's and other NBA dominations were far more impressive. On a relative level, though, no NBA player (Jordan and Wilt included) ever displayed this level of utter dominance over their peers. I realize some of you won't care about this, but I think it's pretty impressive to so completely dominate your peers, even if they're not as good as someone else's peers.

Flagging support for the Olypmic opening ceremonies?

I've been to Canada once; hand me the flag, I'll do it for a free trip to Italy.

Badgers give Alvarez a goodbye kiss.

Barry just plain made Big Ten Football...what it is today Not so sure. He's a good coach but (even ignoring Paterno since PSU "just" joined the Big Ten 15ish years ago), there have been enough very good Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa, etc teams to say Big Ten football would have been what it is today without Barry Alvarez. I'm not saying he's not a great coach. I'm just saying he didn't "make" the conference.

Leading FSU Tackler Suspended for Sexual Assault

If he's guilty then throw the book at him. But I hope if some girl ever accuses me of rape you people aren't on my jury.

Some honesty, finally

I'm not sure when this conversation became about McGwire, but since his name keeps coming up: Andro was legal when he took it. He never denied taking Andro. Whether he took other stuff too I don't know, but what's the big deal with him taking what was then a legal supplement?

Deion drops the Neon.

I kind of like the guy. He seems to have significantly matured in the past 5 years or so. On him as a commentator: I'm not crazy about him but noone makes me change the channel faster than the loudmouthed idiot that is Michael Irvin.

Some honesty, finally

I agree. He made a mistake and admitted it. Kujos. What I wonder about is how many minor leaguers/college players/high school players have tried roids to try to get to the next level.

Tony Dungy's Son Found Dead

How awful. God Bless them. Good thing Indy lost; at least that is off his plate.

Johnny Damon to sign with Yanks.

As a Sox fan I think this sucks. It's very likely that whoever the Sox replace him with will be inferior. He may have been asking for too much money, but at the end of the day, I just don't care how much money John Henry spends. And I am too poor and too far away to be concerned with any raise in ticket prices to offset players' salaries. I think that in terms of winning games this move is overall good for the Yankees and bad for the Sox.

Oh wait, never mind. (NFL version)

I didn't get to see a lot of either game so take it easy on me but from what I saw... I'm happy it was the Chargers that snapped the streak and not the Jaguars. All those dirty plays last week (punching Reggie Wayne (I think it was him anyway) in the back of the head, pounding someone's (Edgerrin's?) head into the turf the very next play) made me lose a lot of respect for Jacksonville. What a bunch of thugs. Good for San Diego. Probably good for Indianapolis also.

MOST IMPROVED PLAYER

I don't see what good an article about a lesser known fruit (currant) would do

Red Sox contact Clemens about 2006 season

"do you stay at the job you are at so that you can monitor your child coming up through the organization?" Unless you've got a job with spectators that comment makes no sense.

Tejada Wants Out of Baltimore

What chico said. It doesn't seem very likely. But as a Sox fan, I'd still like to see it happen. If Manny is going to go, this would be a nice return.

For Red Sox, Ramirez problem

So, Renteria is gone (Pretty sure that's also part of this post). I thought they had Lowell to play third? Can this guy play first?
