"You can't be that good - you never played for Manchester United."

Two things came to mind when I read the article. 1. The guy is a tool 2. Don't make wisecracks to drunk folks.

A run for the ages

true dat. and even if he went to a contender, I suspect he would be relagated as a middle relieer becasue his stuff isn't "flashy" no 100 mph fastballs to impress folks. Which is too bad. we have all seen pitchers with supersonic arms that can't hit a salad plate much less the inside plate

A run for the ages

I was watching the All Star Game and Saw Trevor Hoffman come in. No he isn't Rivera, but he has more saves then Riveral and NO ONE will ever mistake his stuff as overpowering. Rivera has one devistatingly good pitch, Trevor has...nothing... yet he seems to get it done. If Rivera is a no brainer to go in, Hoffman should be because he has done more with a LOT less

Former MLB player David Segui admits to using hGH!

It does seem intresting that the only ones caught with roids were marginal players byt the ones widley ASSUMED to be using are big name players. I tend to agree that no amount of muscle can overcome a perfectly thrown 0-2 splitter all the time.

Now He Knows Why the Caged Bird Sings...

The story gets me thinking about folks that are twice his age that have not one, but SEVERAL DUI's and just keep doing it. And if you talk to them, they genuinely don't "get it". I hope JJ has the point driven home to him the first time so that the first time is the ONLY time.

The hard part? "The swimming."

My favorite moment was when the reporter walked up to the kid and asked him what was the hardest part. The look on the reporter's face when he answered was great! If theat wasn't a "well Duh" kind of answer I don't know what is. Kudos to the kid.

Clippers Force Game 7

I recall that MVP stands for MOST VALUABLE PLAYER not the BEST player. Once the Clippers figured out to posse up on Nash like he was a Lebron or Kobe, we found out that as far as talent goes, I admitt, he is REAL average but his effect on the team is undeniable when folks treat him like an average player Nash shines .No Nash, Suns don't get out of the first round of the playoff even with Amarie healty. That's why Nash got it last year and why he deserved it this year. I would have had no problem with Lebron getting it either, but seriously, who elase deserved it? If Chauncy were out, the Pistons still would probably be where they are without missing a beat. Kobe? I personally don't think the voters are completely comfortable with him, even though he has managed to stay reasonably out of trouble and was HUGE for the Lakers. The Suns got to the confrence finals last year with their style so it is viable. The question is can it win a championship?

Cavs 2

I am mor amazed by the fact that the Suns can hang in a game where they shoot like crap. I had heard that they couldn't won close games. a Suns Mavs confrence finals would be intresting to watch.

Booing:

"Americans boo the Canadian national anthem out of stupidity and jealousy (because it's time to admit it, folks -- The Star-Spangled Banner sucks)" I don't know about the jealousy part but I have never been a fan of the Anthem.. IN fact, How many have actually heard ALL of the "Star Spangled Banner" OMG it's LOOOOOONG.. BTW what is "spangled" anyways? Who even uses that phrase?

Win or lose, Guillen stays the same

How does being a player's manager equate to "poor strategy"? Bobby cox is cinsidered a "genius" but for all of their times in the playoff (15 years I think) they have been to the WS ,what TWICE? and won ONCE. Ozzie gets to the WS in less than 3 years, wins it on the first shot.. and people as asking for sugar for their Hater-Aid.
