Cuba has put out many great atheletes, baseball, basketball, boxing and so forth.It is a shame that politics plays a part in who is in or out. Shame on Bush for throwing his wieght around in such a scenario, yet the man is frickin idiot. The Cubans are condfident and playing for honor, screw the money, they wish to donate it to an American Disaster, something out own country was slow to respond to, and when it did, there were strings attached to it, help me out with math here

So be it, with as many people who Do NOT want to work, or complain about work, screw them, at least the man has the same courage as he showed in the ring outside of it. If one can be a good boxer, so be it, ditto for rubbish man and so forth. There is honor in facing hardship and showing up to work each and everyday, regardless of the prestige attached to the task at hand.

Having personally lost a child some years ago, it forever changed me and took years to be able to cope with it, with the coming of the holiday's, and personal life issues / involvements of the Dungy family, I am sure there is a lot of pain within this family at this time. Kudos to all the postings mentioning prayers and blessings for the Dungy family, I think or know that the blessings, nurturing and love of God finally pulled me through such a horrible, dark and frighting period in my life. Again, our hearts go out the Dungy family

Born and raised a 49er fan here in Hawaii with the 49er's, I have seen it all the past 30 years,Gene Washington, Freddie Solomon, the GREAT Jerry Rice, never in that time did I witness such a self centered Prick as T.O.. The man is good, better than most, yet have we heard Marvin Harrison, D. Clark, or John Taylor voice themselves in the manner which Owens claims 'I will never change' for anyone, hell no. These guys all had and have class, something Owens will never have, nor be able to buy. The guy, I won't say man, is by far the biggest, self centered prick/idoit ever in my opinion to take to the field. Sure he has not, as we are aware of, done anything illict or illegal. I saw the talent, ethic and potential in S.F., yet he is not the prima donna or talent as the others previously mentioned. BAN this prick from the N.F.L., he is all about ME, ME,ME,ME,ME,ME, SCREW YOU T.O.

A life long resident of the Hawaiian Islands, I am no Eagles fan, I do know however, that the Eagles have consistiently mustered some damn good teams, and the organization for the most part is a class act, stand up club. I tip my hat to most of the comments made in respect to Donovan. Especially to the one post made in reference to " playing at the level or point of where indidvuals are not cognitive of race or color". Kudos to this post and most of all kudos, respect and admiration for Donovan, truly a class act and one Hell of an athelete. In todays day and age, he(Donovan) should be emulated, admired and respected FOR the individual he is on the playing field as well as off. Mahalo
