Pat Tillman - Choosing to stay in the war and his legacy.: Two great stories this week concerning Pat Tillman on his decision to honor his commitment to the country and the legacy he leaves with a foundation that is doing good works.

Bo Jackson was accused of steroids and has decided to file a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper.: This is huge news as it serves as the first professional athlete in today's culture to stand up against accusations. The story takes on a life of its own as the newspaper pulls the article and the accuser is a nutritionist with no apparent steroids expertise. After all the Balco and Canseco accusations, this is the first athlete to sue for defamation.

Yep. Screwed the pooch on this one. I just sent a note to the admin apologizing and I'd like to apologize to the community. I didn't read the guidelines prior to posting and it won't happen again. If I want to share my opinions or any additional information I will post them in the comments. And to chris2sy .. when you self link FPP the Yankees win.

Why can't anyone throw a baseball faster than 100 mph?

This was a great article. I read it yesterday and did some more digging. There is some fascinating stuff on the web concerning the physics of pitching. Many of the most common pitching injuries can be traced to poor pitching posture. Amazing our bodies can endure such stress.

"Bo's reaction to the newspaper article was the reaction I expected from Palmeiro and never got. If its not true, then go after who ever said it." Agreed. Shocking that more people who deny taking steroids don't take action against their accusers.

Helton went off on the reporter, but didn't sue for defamation. Bo Knows Lawsuits. You'd think McGwire, et. al. would have stepped up and sued Canseco.

Reflecting on 10 years of ESPN.com

They have ruined the site by killing the homepage. 2001 was their prime year. Great layout, easy to load, nothing heavy. Now it's just saturated.

It's that time again...

I have a true dark horse, but I think he'll turn it up and finish in the top three: Rich Beem. Ok, now that you've stopped laughing ... Seriously, is this about the best week for pro golf?
