Strahan, Brooks lead NFL Hall of Fame class

I only remember him making a catch to end the Chiefs' Super Bowl hopes in 1993. 20 years later, we still haven't gotten anywhere close to that peak.

Rex Ryan Guarantees Super Bowl Victory

As a Kansas City Royals fan, Rex's schtick seems suspiciously close to Tony Pena's right before Pena was run out of town.

Hank Steinbrenner Hammers Revenue Sharing

These documents posted by Deadspin last year show that losing and raking in the revenue sharing money is more profitable than winning.

MLB is broken, and no one wants to fix it.

Knicks finally land Anthony

OKC needs a big man to crash the boards. Ideally, Dwight Howard would end up there. God, Durant could average 40 a game if he had someone like him to draw defenses away.

Chiefs' Jamaal Charles Making NFL History

I'm happy the Chiefs paid Charles while he is still useful, rather than making the mistake they did with LJ. I'd like to see them get in someone else to take Jones' place as well. Perhaps a Brandon Jacobs type. That would be an awesome backfield for years to come.

They probably give each other grooming tips, discuss the latest in men's couture, and make crank calls to Andy Roddick.

Zack Greinke Traded to Brewers

I'd say that Greinke's hatred of the limelight also played into his willingness to go to Milwaukee. Even if he's now medicated for the social anxiety disorder, I can't see him succeeding in a big market, where every move of his will be under scrutiny.

I'll be interested to see where he goes after 2012, because the Brewers won't be winning forever. The only teams who can fulfill his wishes of winning year in and year out are either in big markets (Boston, Yankees) or can't afford to sign him (Tampa).

Magic Add Arenas, Turkoglu, Two Others for Lewis, Carter, Gortat and Pietrus

This is a total panic move for Orlando. They're making the same misguided types of moves Cleveland did when they were trying to keep Lebron.

I do find it amazing that the Wizards found a trading partner dumb enough to take on Arenas' albatross of a contract. It's not going to be fun in Orlando the next couple of seasons, as Arenas and J-Rich decline, and Howard leaves anyway.

Zack Greinke Traded to Brewers

They gave Greinke and an undisclosed amount of cash. Tell me....how does this help the Royals?

The extra cash was to help the Brewers buy out Yuniesky Betancourt's 2012 option, should they choose to do so. Without kicking in the cash, the Royals might not have gotten Jeffress in the deal.
