Fan Injured by Airborne Baseball Bat at Wrigley Field

I was at the Reds-Cubs game Sunday, and Russell lost a bat that day as well. The bat ended up about 5 rows back of the Cubs dugout down the 3rd base line. Maybe, he should try some stickum. Luckily, in Cincy, no one was hurt.

Martin Brodeur to Announce Retirement.

1. Brodeur 2. Roy 3. Plante 4. Hasek 5. Sawchuck

I think Ken Dryden has to be in there somewhere. But instead of who, I don't know.

11 of 12 Patriots' Balls Deflated, ESPN Reports

Ok, I get that New England would have won, regardless of how much air was in the footballs, but that misses the point. If you were speeding down a street and then you got stopped at a red light, you couldn't tell the police officer that it didn't matter that you were speeding since you would arrive at your destination at the same time because of the red light. (the speeding had no effect on the eventual outcome). You were still speeding. In this case, the Patriots, if it is proven to be so, were still cheating, even if it didn't determine the final outcome.

NFL Pick 'Em, Week 6

Yeah, can't pick against my team/lol, even if I'm pretty sure they're going to lose. At least, there's no money involved.

USPTO Cancels Redskins Trademarks

First off, it's the name that lost it's trademark today, not the logo. So Flea market vendors will not be able to sell items with their logo, only with the name. Also, the name is still registered, it's just not trademarked anymore. (Basically, you'll see the little circle with an R in it, instead of a "TM" after the name now). I don't think this will cost the Washington franchise very much money at all in the end (as far as marketing and merchandise). Basically, someone could use the Redskin name (since it's no longer trademarked) but since they couldn't use the logo and the name is still registered it would have to appear they are promoting someone other than the NFL team that currently resides in Washington, D.C.

I really like an idea that I heard on Olbermann (who I usually don't agree with on too many "political type of things"). He suggested that they keep the logos, the uniforms, etc. but change the name to the Washington Americans. The more I thought about it, the more I liked it. What a perfect way to honor the Native American (instead of pretending that you're honoring them with an abusive slur).

What is the best possible season a player could have?

I know this was about a single player, but to show the difference between greatness and bottom feeders, if a team goes 4-3 every week they'll finish with 92-93 wins and probably make the playoffs. If that same team goes 3-4 each week they'll lose 92-93 games and get their manager fired, etc. It's amazing to think that the difference is that minimal that one game out of every seven makes that big of a difference.

Kirk Cousins to start for Redskins in Week 15

I think this is actually a plan for Washington to highlight Cousins to make him available for a trade. There are a lot of teams that will be looking for a good young quarterback, and Washington needs draft picks.

Slave Genes Myth Must Die

I think there are several problems with the thesis. First off, you can't group all African-Americans as being descended from slaves, it's just not true. To say, that someone who has descended from slaves "may" have came from a gene pool that was more athletic is not out of the question. You could have been white and descended from slavery (Greek and Roman time frames, for instance). The theory should be that if you descended from slavery you have a higher chance of having "athletic" type genes in your make-up. It doesn't mean you will have, and doesn't mean if you didn't come from a slavery descendence that you will not have "athletic" type of genes. It's like if you have family members that have had cancer, you may be more dispositioned to have cancer as well. It doesn't mean you will get cancer and it doesn't mean only those who have family members who have had cancer will get it. It just a higher probability that's all. If these same people hadn't been slaves but rather workers in their villages, their descendents would still be at a higher probability of having the athletic gene, just like athletes kids have a better chance of being athletic (since many of the slaves were taken because of their strength).

Sports Artist Leroy Neiman Dies

I'm saddened by this news as I look at two of his masterpieces that hang on my wall in my office. He had a very unique style that really brought the casual sports fan into the "art" world, much like Andy Warhol did for a generation.

Eric Wynalda's 'Eff You' to American Soccer

The Dayton Dutch Lions had a similar game here against the Columbus Crew. They were badly outshot yet beat their MLS opponent 2-1 to move on to the next round. Not sure if this speaks poorly of the MLS or that these teams may not be taking this tournament as seriously as the lower tier teams.

Kentucky Makes It Eight

Congrats to UK, you were the best team all year. But I wonder how long before these wins get "vacated" just like they were at Memphis and UMass?
