Review of Springsteen's Super Bowl Halftime Show: Greg Mitchell's take: "they done good." Should politics be interjected into the halftime show, or should it be just about the music?

There Is No Leo G. Hershberger

Too bad they didn't continue for a few more years. It would of been cool to see who else came out on the list, and who knows, (?), it may have become a real award. I do believe this could happen again. People don't normally investigate good news.

The Supreme Court Don't Wanna Hear It: if you're a cheerleader, you must cheer

Honestly.....I can see the courts point of view. I don't like it, as I think most would agree, but to throw it into the category of a frivolous lawsuit? I think I would fight THAT ruling.

Charges Trimmed Against Barry Bonds

Why? Lots of baseball players have a conviction on their record and have been inducted to the Hall of Fame.

Like Sosa, McGuire. and Palmeiro? It's the deniers that will be kept out. Because it will be viewed as an unfair advantage with performance enhancing drugs.

I truly wish these guys had not done this. I would of loved to see their careers au natural.

Charges Trimmed Against Barry Bonds

grum@work wrote "Then, after the case is over, the MLBPA is going to continue the pursuit of the collusion charges against the MLB, regarding Bonds and the zero offers he received at the end of the 2007 season."

There is a difference between collusion, and not wanting to touch this guy with a 10 foot pole. And on a side note, as in the football cases, players should take responsibility for what goes in or on their body. I didn't know, or I didn't think, should not be excuses.

Charges Trimmed Against Barry Bonds

It surprises me that on this blog, so many of you consider the purity of baseball to be more important to the game itself. If my memory is right, I believe rcade has argued vehemently in the past against the designated hitter. (sorry if it wasn't you rcade). I think most people believe Pete Rose bet on his team, the White Sox threw the World Series, and that Barry Bonds knowingly used steroids. Others in his position have grudgingly admitted their use after the writing was on the wall. When all else fails, deny,deny,deny. (see Roger Clemens). Sometimes it takes prosecution to force admitting to their indiscretion. Conviction on 1 charge will rightfully keep him out of the Hall of Fame, and throw doubt on all his records, (right or wrong). As long as there are so many purists in the game, his records will require an asterisk in the record book.

NBA to allow skin-tight uniforms for All-Star game

eh! I don't want to say who cares, but I'd prefer not to see some of these guys in skin tights. I'd like to see the neon green tho. That'd be pretty cool.

Wisconsin Towel Maker Has Terrible Dilemma

"The NFL should eliminate the 2 week gap between conference finals and the Super Bowl just so the sports media doesn't have the scrape the bottom of the barrel to find something to write about."

How's this going to play out when they go to an 18 game schedule and add an extra bye week? Are they planning on starting the season Aug. 1st?

Lesbians in Athletics?

A college that would recruit lesbians welcome, would probably be an undefeated, national champion for many many years. That's how you battle discrimination. Ask Jackie Robinson's family.

Lesbians in Athletics?

Do you believe there are no gays or lesbians playing basketball at Iowa State? Or any College? Homosexuality has been closeted for so long, especially at the high school and college age group, that unless the person in question is flaming, you would never know until the choice is made to LET you know. Why do you think so many gay people get married? It's all an illusion. A very real illusion. Until the stigma of being gay is lifted, people will continue to live their own lie. Kids can be cruel.

College Football Donor Wants $3 Million Back

Whoa whoa whoa, A donation is a donation. Take his name off of the buildings per his request, and keep the money. Time to part ways. Things will never be the same. He can't recall his donation to the college any more than he could withdraw his donation from the girl scouts or the united way. Judge Judy would throw this out. A donation is a gift.

Cam Newton Declares for NFL Draft

We all know what happens if the collective bargaining restricts signing bonuses for 2012, All rookies will be under a league max for a few years. BUT what happens if there is a lockout? Are these rookies just basically screwed? They won't be able to be eligible for college play, and they won't be playing in the NFL for what could be a season. How much are these guy actually worth......Seriously, someone enlighten me.
