Swing and a miss: - Sheffield takes a wicked cut... at a fan... who may or may not have punched him whilst collecting a ball in play. It's always something with these guys. And I, for one, welcome it.
Yeah. And maybe I'm a Chinese Jet Pilot: A funny little story about one man's chameleon-like prowess with the authorities. I like to pretend I'm a hockey player too. But unlike Worrell, at least I can skate.
Why girls shouldn't play sports: Is this really a problem with Title IX? Or just a problem with the soon to be incarcerated Rick Lopez? Is there another agenda at work here? How many questions can I fit on a FPP?
Lift-off is expected to be an expensive undertaking: Roger, he of the seven-time Cy Young variety, decides to cut the Astros a little slack and request the largest sum in arbitration history.
