Barbaro pulls up lame in Preakness

trolling?,, nah,, just a quick thought was all. Just because horses have been saddled for thousands of years doesn't make it right in my opinion.

I am surprised no one brought up the fact that the tragedy is that horses shouldn't have a saddle on their backs.

Floyd Patterson

I met Floyd once at a Golden Gloves event and though I was only about 12 at the time He took the time to talk to me and gave me his autograph. A wonderful man he was, left an impression on me to this day. My prayers go out to his family. Thank you Floyd.

Pistons stand in LeBron's way, just as they did for Jordan.

What Lebron is about to find out is that Detroits defense is not as soft as Washingtons. A couple of hard fouls inside should slow his game up a bit.

"I'm Keith Hernandez."

The Mets knew when they hired him that he was prone to off the wall comments That's why he is there.

This is a great pickup for the Giants and yes it does put them closer to a Super Bowl shot.

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

This one is simple, if you remove most of the candidates from their teams those teams would still make the playoffs or at least finish close. If you take Lebron away from the Cavs they are a last place team. I think that qualifies him as most valuable.

Take Me Out to the Brawl Game

I've seen Papa Francos workouts, I doubt Guillen could take him. I never really understood what people wanted Pedro to do with Zimmer. If he turned his back on him, Zimmer would have hit him. If he tries to get away from Zim, He would get called a pussy. He was in a no win situation and in the heat of battle I would have knocked that old man on his ass also.

Shaq fined $15,000 for criticizing NBA officials

I saw the game. I guess the elbow Collins caught in the face must have been my imagination. I've watched Shaq abuse and bloody people over the years and get no calls so to hear him cry now is hilarious. Side note: Nets will beat the Heat if they meet in the playoffs

Keyshawn to Panthers

A great pickup for the Panthers. He'll take some of the heat off Smith and go over the middle for the difficult balls. I wish the Giants would have signed him.

Strapping on the knee pads.

Isiah Thomas didn't have a good track record even before this hire. I think his claim to fame as GM was probably drafting Vince Carter when with the Raptors. The situation will not improve because with all talk of trading Marbury who the hell is gonna take him and his contract. Everywhere he has been (Minesota, Phoenix, Jersey) they've won after he was gone. Larry Brown has also done a terrible job coaching. Its obvious he doesn't like this team and will do anything to undermine Isiah. His track record speaks for itself also, he has never finished a contract anywhere and has burned bridges in more places than Marbury. The Knicks played harder and better for Herb Williams last year. Don't be surprised if Larry's dream job is really Isiahs GM position with Herb takin over as coach next year. The only bright spot is the 3 rookies, Channing gets the publicity, Nate won the slam dunk but I think David Lee will be the best of the lot. Manhattan is the island of under achieving over paid misfits. A scrap heap for the rest of the league. Highest payroll and worst record is definitely not a good combination. That said, I 'll continue to cheer and scream at the TV for my Knicks and look across the river at the Nets when I want to see some real basketball,

Fidel knew he wouldn't get the money, so donates it to charity. (Great public relations ploy). Bush as usual welcomes the chance to make himself look like an ass and says no to the money. (doesn't think anyone is watching) . Fidel rides off looking again like a martyr and the US like assholes. *note* I try so hard to not get political

Japan wins World Baseball Classic

Tired of hearing about the timing of the WBC, that it was spring training for Major Leaguers. If you took representing your country seriously come in shape a month earlier. If you put the best US team out there it wouldn't have turned out much different due to the fascination with the long ball. The White Sox game evolved because of a Venezuelan manager playing small ball, the way baseball was played before ESPN.

Fidel Castro kept his best players at home because he feared defection and they still made it to the finals. What does it say when only one starting player (Ichiro) from both teams is in the Major Leagues?

My All-Star fun has peaked.

what makes Nate Robinson more impressive is that he played cornerback also at the Univ of Washington. He has tried to start a fight with a 7 footer in practice and had to be restrained from going after Malik Rose at 6 ft 8,,,,, gotta love his intensity

Nate Robinsons win will be the highlight of the Knicks season and will probably earn him an endorsement deal somewhere.

ESPN names new MNF broadcast team.

I've been sitting here thinking over and over for a worse choice than Theisman and I can't come up with one. If LT hadn't broken his leg maybe he wouldn't come across as the bitter person he seems to be. Tony K should keep Theismans blood boiling which could be fun I just feel bad for Tirico.

Knicks trade Davis- get Rose

Isiah never had a track record of building a team. This is a good move for the Knicks but it doesn't offset all the bad moves allready made.Larry Brown needs to check his ego, so does Stephon The Knick core is getting younger which is good for the future but for right now I have to look across the river to the Nets if I want to see halfway decent basketball.

Johnny Damon to sign with Yanks.

It just goes to show again that money is everything. I want to see how quick yankee fans embrace somebody they passionately booed for the last few years. During this season I brought it to the attention of a few yankee fan friends of mine that Damon would be there centerfielder next year. All I got was the "no way", " I don't want him on my team", and other deregatory remarks. Those same friends called me today with "hey man, we got Johnny Damon and praised not only the move but Damon. The sad part of it is that living in New York and being in Yankee country it doesn't surprise me.
