how's this for a miserable collection losers i have to root for: packers, dodgers, lakers, loyola marymount lions, and democrats. ye gods.
teams i root against once my teams have been eliminated: bosox/yankees/giants/padres, vikings/bears/bucs/patriots, kings/spurs.
i've got a lot of memorable sporting events that i've watched on tv, but the most memorable one i attended was probably 2/8/2003 when my lowly loyola marymount lions upset the gonzaga bulldogs at home. the season didn't amount to much, but that was still a (relatively) amazing upset for a small school with little else to get excited about, athletically speaking.
i'm not really good at any sports and that's an awful curse for someone who has so much passion for them. if you live in southern california and are looking for a 6'0'', lanky guard with no handle who can't finish in traffic, i'm your man. at least i've got long monkey arms and some scouts have stated that i have tremendous upside. i also think i'm the youngest man in the city to own his own bowling ball, shoes, and bag. high score: 220.
on a lifelong search for intelligent sports discussion. still looking...
McNabb fires back at NAACP prez's criticism that he's "mediocre": Personally, i'm not an eagles fan, but i'd say mcnabb is much more than mediocre. From reading the prez's opinion piece on mcnabb, it seems as though he tries to connect mcnabb's decreased scrambling during games and an old soundbyte of mcnabb saying that "everybody expects black quarterbacks to scramble." I think it probably had more to do with the qb playing with injuries, as opposed to him selling out.
Of course, the prez also loses me with quotes like these "Just think how the whole media circus could have been avoided had you had the courage to offer only a tiny fraction of your bonus this year to Owens and running back, Brian Westbrook."
