SlapShot Part II: USC hockey goalie rides stick like a horse then moons the crowd while slapping his butt cheeks. No report yet if Tim "Dr. Hook" McCracken protested

What?! No mention of the epic Phins - Chargers playoff tilt in '82? Good thing I don't take Sports Illustrated very seriously anymore, or I'd be pissed Maybe none of the writers were there in person.

If next year the NHL doesn't generate as much revenue as it did this year will the salary cap go down?

In any sport you have to stay loyal to your core fan base.Because of greed many sports expand too fast or into the wrong areas.The season is too long overlapping basketball and baseball. The playoffs are the start of the real season,too many teams get in.The season goes too far beyond what origanly was a winter sport.The players themselves are not that marketable except a few Can the above statement also refer to the NBA?

The losers are the Sabres. Top 2 centers gone. No one to replace them

As for the Mets, the "Midnight Massacre" plunged them into their darkest era. They would finish last in 1977 and would lose 95 or more games in each of the next three seasons under Torre, who would be fired after a 41-62 record in the strike-shortened '81 season. Wonder what Joe learned in twenty years to make him a hall of fame manager?

Does anyone know for sure if there are two Stanley Cups? The one the players get, and one the fans see at malls or arenas around the league. Sometimes you will see it (the fake one) in a mall and you can have your picture taken while touching, hugging or even kissing it. Other times, especially during the playoffs, it will show up in and you can't get within 20 feet and there are guards around it.(the real one)

I don't get it. Drag the fan off, arrest him, and get on with the match.

I wonder if expansion has diluted the talent base? No. Before expansion the talent base was primarily from Canada. Now the talent base is Earth, a much bigger source for talent.

"Now, we're choosing the current best athlete at each number" #6 Bobby Cox over Joe Torre, both great managers, but would you consider them athletes? #23 LeBron James - can't argue with that, but no mention of Chris Drury. The man has only won a Little League world series, a NCAA championship, a Stanley Cup, and this year has scored more clutch goals in the regular season and playoffs than anyone. The man is a winner where ever he goes.

"Playing in a time of interleague play gives Sosa a distinct advantage over someone like Babe Ruth (who only played in NL parks during the World Series). His PAPHI score would probably be in the .650 range." Babe hit six homers while playing for the Boston Braves in his final season.

"Thorne: -- because he doesn't cooperate. 1-2 delivery and that one's taken in the dirt. The great story we were talking about the other night was that famous red stocking that he wore when they finally won, the blood on his stocking. Nah. It was painted. Doug Mirabelli confessed up to it after. It was all for PR. Two ball, two strike count. Palmer: Yeah, that was the 2004 World Series. Thorne: Yeah. Palmer: That second appearance." Game 6 ALCS = Blood Game 2 WS = Paint He realized how much camera time his ankle got in the ALCS that he went and painted it for the World Series to draw more attention for ALS. Is that so hard to figure out?

Something not mentioned in the story, but reported elsewhere, was that after Belfour lunged at the cop, the cop tazered him.

Emery was a golden gloves boxer in his youth so he can take care of himself. The thing that should bother Sens fans is that no one came to his defence when Peters went after him. What did Murray think Ruff was going to do on the next shift? He is an idiot for sending out 3 of his top skill players when he knows Buffalo's tough guys are coming out. Senators are a gifted talented team that will be gone in the first round again.

Poile didn't take a page from Regier's playbook; stand fast and blow a great chance at winning the cup. (I'm honestly thinking Buffalo's shot was last year....and Regier blew it.) Yes,it was Darcy Regier that gave Tim Connolly a concussion, broke Henrik Tallinder's arm, injected bacteria into a cut on Jay McKee's leg, pulled Teppo Numminen's groin, and did something ( I forget) to Dmitri Kalinin's leg. At the time of the trade deadline Buffalo was healthy and had depth at forward and defence. However no team can survive 4 of their top 5 defencemen going down with injuries in the playoffs

When did the Super Bowl become a battle between which ever team sucks less wins instead of whom ever plays better? If you didn't watch any games the last two years except the Super Bowls, you would wonder how any of them made it that far. This year we saw the real Seattle and Pittsburgh (average teams)and next year we'll see the real Bears(average) At least Indy will still be a little above average, but their best years are behind them.
