Sports Bio

Most memorable event would have to be watching Lou Brock get his 3000th hit back in 1979. Fan of all the St. Louis professional sports teams, especially the Cardinals. Also love college football & basketball.

Sale of Blues to Checketts is off: Reportedly Checketts thought the asking price was too much. It now appears the door will be re-opened for other local investors to resume negotiations.

When franchises go bad.

The Blues???? One terrible year doesn't make them a bad franchise. Checketts, Davidson and new coach Andy Murray have done an admirable job of rebuilding the franchise after former owner Laurie's dismantling job last year. Also, how could the Arizona Cardinals fail to make this list? Here is a franchise that has never been good- not in Chicago, not in St. Louis, not in Arizona. Bill Bidwill HAS to be the worst owner in all of pro sports.

Diamondbacks' Webb wins NL Cy Young

As a Cardinals fan, I was hoping Carpenter would repeat, but Webb was probably the better choice among a less than stellar field this year.

Tigers, Burning Kind of Bright

1968....the year of the pitcher....brings back painful memories for this Cards fan, watching Mickey Lolich outduel Gibby in Game 7. Its been fun watching the Tigers this season- hope the magic lasts another couple months.

West Texas Drinking League..... now there's a league where I could have been a star!

Leinart signs a large contract

people will be lumping him in with all the other horrible picks the Cards have made over the last 80 years or so... I think Don was referring to illustrious 1st rounders such as Steve Pisarkiewicz, Steve Little, Clyde Duncan and Kelly Stouffer. I could go on...these are just a few of the worst. I suffered through Bidwell & George Boone's ineptness every year until Arizona was kind enough to take them away.

Leiter calls it quits

I've always liked Leiter- a class act for sure. All of a sudden, for some reason, I'm feeling a little queasy about having Benitez on one of my fantasy teams!

Shit, fan. Fan, shit.

I had another diatribe all written, but Grum's "Willie Mays" link said it a whole lot better.

Shit, fan. Fan, shit.

Why aren't there any threads about Rafael Palmiero? Maybe because nobody cares about Rafael Palmeiro anymore?

Shit, fan. Fan, shit.

I was also wondering about the difference in Conte's statements. Was he lying in the 60 Minutes interview? Come on. Even by that interview anyone who cared knew Conte was a chameleon- changing his story depending on who he was talking to at the time. My point exactly. So this time we should believe he's really telling the truth.

Shit, fan. Fan, shit.

Until the allegations in this book are actually proven, they don't have any more credibilty than Jose Canseco's. Anybody can write a book, and many do, usually with the intent of making some money. The more spectacular the allegations, the more people buy the book. Not to say that this might not all prove to be true, but until it is, its just somebody else's storyline. Amateur- I was also wondering about the difference in Conte's statements. Was he lying in the 60 Minutes interview? Now my real dilemma- do I try to trade BB from my fantasy team while he still has some value, or stick with him, hoping this will all blow over and he gets me the 30 or so HR's I was hoping for when I got him in the 6th round?

This is just a 'Traffic' situation, right?

All the bashing aside, does anyone actually think Marcus will ever get drafted? Two words: Lawrence Phillips 'nuff said.
