Nice catch, dude: A fan at a recent Phillies/Dbacks game one-hands a foul ball. While holding his toddler. Who is in turn holding a vat of soda.

NFL Pro Bowl ballots: are up. Vote for your favorite players. For QBs, I'll vote for Favre, Brooks, and Vick in the NFC; Maddox, Gannon, and Bledsoe in the AFC. Who has earned the trip to Hawaii?

Alabama Defeats Georgia

That was one of the most exciting college football games I've seen in years.

Roll Tide!

Seattle Wins on What-the-Hell Mary

It was an expensive error. For Vegas.

Peyton Manning Throws 3 Picks in Loss to Falcons

The Falcons are 2-0, the Saints are 0-2, and in college football, Alabama looks unstoppable. I'm so deliriously happy I just don't know what to do with myself.

8% of Fans Leave Sporting Events Legally Drunk

In related news, 8% of the audience at a recent Phish show were "tripping balls", 23% reported being "high as fuck", and 4% were said to be "off their face" but unable to articulate what intoxicants they had ingested.

Across town at the My Chemical Romance show, 12% of the crowd self-reported as being "sad".

Packers Crush Falcons, 48-21

Ugh.

Just, ugh.

This loss will take some getting over.

Augusta National

I know it's a bit Pepsi Blue, but I'm genuinely excited to see this. Amen Corner. Hogan's Alley. The Eisenhower Tree. All of it.

The only major golf tournament to be played at the same course every year, The Masters is a notoriously conservative organization. It took years of secret negotiations between EA Sports and the poobahs in Augusta to make this happen.

If there is not a special achievement for replicating Gene Sarazen's 1935 double eagle, I shall be disappointed.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

grum@work: yeah, yeah, '98. One anomalous season of squeaking their way into the Super Bowl only to get trounced by the Broncos doesn't count.

Oops. "1000 yard receiver"

Stupid phone touchpad.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons are quietly building their reputation as the most-feared team in the NFC. I mean, c'mon! Did anyone watch that Falcons/Bucs game? Bucs take the lead with four minutes left and you can just HEAR them thinking, "Uh oh, we left Matty Ice way too much time on the clock." And sure enough, the Falcons calmly and methodically march right down the field. You don't want to play these guys at home in the playoffs, and they're getting close to sewing up home-field advantage.

Having suffered a lifetime of the unremitting awfulness that was Falcons Football, I'm over the moon with joy at how Mike Smith and Rich McKay have transformed the franchise into a team that EXPECTS to win every time they step on the field.

We've got a 1000 yard rusher in Michael Turner and a 100 yard receiver in Roddy White.

We've got an unflappable QB.

We've got a first-ballot HoF tight end.

We're thin at running back due to injury, and our secondary makes do with speed since they're undersized, but, DAMN. Finally! The Falcons are LEGIT.

Derek Anderson Pulls a Dennis Green

Why shouldn't Anderson have given up on the game? Down by two scores in the second quarter, Coach Whisenhunt sent in the punt team on fourth and one: he'd obviously given up on it.

The Hoser's NFL Picks 2010 -- Week 12

That is all.

Terrell Owens Honors Ailing 6-Year-Old

I used to work at a restaurant TO would frequent when visiting relatives.

His image is that of a selfish loudmouth, but in person he was unfailingly polite and an all-around nice guy. Good to see him getting some good press for a change.

Wheelchair-Bound Player Scores Touchdown

They don't need anyone to give them their triumphs or special moments.

True.

But it made everyone a little happier. Nothing wrong with that.

It would have been more fun if he'd gotten to hit someone as he crossed the goal line, though.
