Uh, about those playoff rules...we've changed them.: David Stern announced that the NBA has decided to expand its first round of playoffs from a best-of-five to a best-of-seven series starting this season. Doesn't it seem odd for a league to change the format for determining its champion in the middle of the season?

Cubs Fans, Dash Any And All Hope Now...: Someone please explain this deal. Why would the Cubs do this? For years there's been talk of a loaded farm system is for the Northsiders. Now, they go and block HeeSop Choi and Bobby Hill. Turning one overpaid black-hole in the line up into two is not the stuff of baseball championships. If this is Dusy's idea of building a team, I say bring back Baylor!
