Sports Bio

Bah, what's the point of putting anything here when some wonk will use it to try and insult me later when he disagrees with me?

How about this instead?
My teams,
Baseball: SF Giants, Oakland A's, Baltimore Orioles and whoever's playing the Yankees. I also like the Red Sox because my family is big on them and they aren't the Yankees.

Football: Redskins, Steelers and Raiders to a lesser degree because I dislike Al Davis so much. And yes Daniel Snider is a prick too but at least he doesn't black out games for his fans, does he?

Hockey: Sharks.

Basketball: Can't like them all so I decided to not like basketball. Plus, its a showboat kind of sport.

Soccer: Maybe Man. U but only because I really like saying Eric Cantona alot.

Cricket: South Africa.

Rugby: All-Blacks.

Tennis: I like the Russian players but mostly because they're stunningly hot AND good. Take that Williams'es. Is there still a men's league?

Golf: Hmm, I don't like Vijay and kind of like Michelson.

Ultimate Fighting: Ice. Man.

Motorcycle Racing: Miquel Duhamel, the Bostroms, James Stewart, Greg Albertyn.

Car racing: Danica's hot.

Wrestling: Andre the Giant.

What else?

The Physics of the Goopball: Slate examines the reaction of a baseball pitch to various substances being applied to the ball. Also of note, pitchers don't really consider using pine tar to be cheating very much.

Funky Stats Fantasy Baseball?:
I was noticing that there are some pretty obscure stats that could be used to set up a 5x5 (or whatever XxX desired) that would have nothing like home runs but rather outfield assists, sacrifices, balks and other offbeat stats to play.

Anyone interested?

Scary to die so young.

Why don't I subscribe to Extra Innings?

Actively working to limit dispersed fan access to your sport is just plain dumb business.

Fuzzy Zoeller Sues Over Libelous Wikipedia Page

Yeah, everybody knows Fuzzy drinks Jim Beam..... He should have just hired ReputationDefender to go to battle for him, they're probably alot cheaper (and alot less effective) than lawyers. I wonder what Fuzzy thought about the bit about his comments about Tiger?

Dad intervenes during his son's wrestling match.

Bad move, dad. If it were mortal danger then maybe, but it wasn't and he snapped.

It's about that time of year

My Snarkobots will either win or be spiteful jerks in defeat! PS. I've got another league drafting next weekend if anyone wants more action, I've got some space.

I am down for fantasy baseball! If anyone wants to do the oddball stats league again, I'd be down for that as well (we selected the more obscure stats to track like putouts, triples, etc, instead of the RBI, Runs, HRs).

"Geez, you mean I'm supposed to feed them, too?"

What kind of a piece of shit forgets to feed his dog for several months? What a jerk.

Isn't this just a less exploitive form of prostitution? And less entertaining too?

Asterisk 73 = $238.14.

Clever. I hope he wears it to the park the day Barry breaks the all-time record.

Orange you glad he works out?

That's the most egregious over use of self-tanners I've ever seen.

Barry Bonds Throws Teammate Under "Speeding" Bus.

I'm a Bonds fan but this is ridiculous. He took pills from a teammate's locker without knowing what they were? Come on, that's what toddlers do, not long time pro ball players. Blaming a teammate for your own stupidity is about the lamest and most pathetic thing ever.

New "toy" to play with at Baseball-Reference.com

Pretty interesting to play around with. I only got a couple to work before the interface bogged down interminably but still very interesting. The really nice thing, grum, would be to be able to port the results into one of the video games to play monster seasons against each other!

Yankees Ink Pettitte To One-Year Deal

Is it too early to start complaining about the Yankees ruining baseball? Not that I'm upset they got Pettitte back, I love cheering against that bugger. It makes it easier now since I cheer for whoever's playing against the Yankees anyway.

Bonds not offered Arbitration

Bonds won't play for incentives so the A's are out. He won't play for Boston because he thinks they're all racists (which, ironically, makes him a racist or, at the very least, a stereotypist), he won't go to New York because they don't need him. I don't know where he goes, he's got so much baggage and is a liability in the field now but he is one hell of a gate draw. Until he breaks the record, sorry if he breaks the record. I kind of hope the Giants let him go so they can add some youth to the team, they looked old, slow and ineffective after the All-Star Break last season. But then, I would like to see him break the record in San Francisco. But not for $12 million or even $10 million.
