Ware spent his best days in an organization that didn't have a clue how to build to capitalize on his abilities. At least he made himself some money.
7 time Pro-Bowler on a team whose average defensive ranking averaged 26th in the league during his tenure ... what a freaking waste.

When Buf decides he wants to make a play there isn't an opponent alive that can stop him.
He needs to realize that and channel his abilities better.

Don't expect Thomas to be employed by the Panthers much longer.

An exciting game, as was this year's Seattle / San Fran game.
No clear favorite going in or coming out of either.
George Mason or VCU in the Final Four with no future pros beating multiple teams with 3-5 first round draft picks? Completely unbelievable accomplishment. App State beating Michigan? Ditto.

College doesn't equal "top-notch". The professional ranks are always better than the college equivalent in every profession and every measurement
To the sports fan this doesn't hold true. The players may be much better, but the entertainment value of the games typically are not.

Blues have a team that will compete for a number of years. If Miller has a few years left in the tank they'll be even better. And any team would benefit from Ott.

but even they can't engineer another threadbare excuse to keep him off the roster
Maybe they just pay him and don't play him.
Not picking sides in his dispute but his last year has amounted to the most insubordination to an employer in history. Why would the Yankees want to help him pad his stats? They've got nothing to gain with him in the lineup. Paying him to sit gives them a chance to start the rebuild now.
Which other team would give him an opportunity to play? Bonds was still a productive player at the time of his scandal - sans any of the accompanying ARod douche baggery - and nobody would go near him.

Excellent work on the setup.

What could've been for the Finns had Tukka Rask not been sick for their semifinal game against Sweden
Finns were by far the toughest opponent for Canada this year.
Although Kristers Gudlevskis' Tretiak impersonation was brilliant.

No team with more than three ex-Cubs has ever won.

*Except in the NHL playoffs.
Not so fast ...
Almost every year the team with the higher content of Canadian players wins the Stanley Cup. Bruins beat the Canucks ... Bruins had more Canadian players. Bruins beat the Leafs last year ... same story.
When sizing up a series have a look at the rosters from a player's country of origin standpoint. You'd be amazed how often the rule holds true.

on draft day when the Browns are on the clock
Browns have a few weaknesses, the worst being ownership and management.
I don't imagine either is available in this year's draft.

The networks and providers are missing out on a huge opportunity to establish new revenue streams with their archaic business strategies. This in turn spawns opportunities for companies like this.

RHCP does Karaoke.
Big fan of live music and always avoid Superbowl halftime shows.
All the canned / choreographed crap can turn even the best performer into nothing more than another musical reality show hairdo type.

Seahawks lead the league in PED suspensions every year during Carroll's tenure.
Sherman had his suspension overturned on the "Ryan Braun" possibly tainted piss due to inappropriate handling technicality. So yes, there's some meat in your buddies' gripes.
But Denver, as most NFL teams, also has it's share of PED issues.
Overall I'd say it's grapes over gripes here.
