Real Madrid

No, can can, should, and will thrive in America. I think that this year's World Cup at the Italian-American community's reaction to it really boosted soccer in America. I think when people ask you if the MLS is the 5th major sport, say yes. When they ask if the MLS has/will replace NHL as major sport #4, say yes. Finally, when they ask you if this country has become a country with three major sports, say yes, but only if the MLS is one of those three. PEople really care in America if Beckham scores a goal. I do.

"Damon has a reputation within baseball clubhouses as being a creepily ardent admirer of his own butt.

I have no idea what spanbot is. What I am saying is what is just from my mind.

Lots of Attention. Little Success.

Hot women, excessive hype. Anyways, they do not deserve the money they make.

How long, on average, is a baseball actually in play during a ballgame?

Ten or fifteen minutes, aryou kidding me. I thought more like thirty. Anyway, it points out baseball's biggest problem, on the field.

Cheaters

Big Mac, Sosa, Raffy, Juan Gon, Barry, Floyd Landis, Lance. I see a baseball feeling in there...

The NFL names former Tagliabue top assistant Roger Goodell new commissioner.

I still like to see Tagliabue gone. I really hope Godell (despite being married to Jane Skinner, if that's not off topic) marks the return to LA.

First rule with pitchers is: Handle with care

If Alfinseca were a strter, I'd send out for 9 innings, six fingers and all. Frankly, if I had Liriano and his forearm, I'd send them for an outing, a CG.

First rule with pitchers is: Handle with care

Pitching has become a winning business as opposed to a game and an offensive show for fans. I wish I could bring back Mordechai "Three Finger" Brown. I really miss old Brownie. Then, my friends on the North Side in the Windy City would be feeling much less pain. After all, they are know the only lovable losers in baseball right now, as opposed to being one of three a few years ago.

Why We Hate A-Rod

I don't like A-Rod. I don't know why. I gues because he's an arrogant Yankee and New Yorker and I am a fan of the dogers, Angels, and most importantly, the Red Sox.

No comment here, until Goodell brings the NFL to LA.

I hope he does better with LA. He's a bad pick altogether, the next Bud Selig.

Two Years to the Beijing Olympics

I saw the news conference live from Beijing last night. Jiang Xiaoyu and Wang Wei answered reporters' questions from about 90 minutes.
