Ricky Williams has cut his hair.: The shocked populace holds their collective breath for an official word from run-ricky-run.com. In the meantime, he's launched himself up my preseason fantasy draft ranking. I mean, seriously, that hair had to weigh like.. 30 pounds.

Whoah, waitaminute... there's an ESPN Gamer site?: When the hell did that happen? Oh. An entire site devoted to the unholy menage a trois of Sports, Gaming, and Marketing? Aside from not even knowing it exists from the ESPN front page, have video games become a solid supplement of fandom... or is it close to being more important than the real thing? Between video games and fantasy leagues, it seems to me fewer and fewer are concerned about the actual thing. I should know, I could give a flip less about who wins the championship as long as I have a good Fantasy/Video Gaming season.

Vick Breaks Leg. Ludacris furiously writes new lyrics about Doug"izzle Sizzle" Johnson.: Arthur Blank signs up for "Do-It-Yourself Caulking the Fibula clinic" at local Home Depot. We'll always have Madden.

Sports Injuries Gallery (NSFW; Well-Behaved and Unannoying Porn Ads): Oh, the Leg Breaks gallery is always fun for the whole family. My all time favorite is the Sid Vicious break. Unfortunately, no slow-motion video with 10 minute excruciating descriptions from color commentary people that we're all so used to.

Laces OUT!

I'm assuming there's been some locker room history that I don't care enough about regarding tonyhomo.com, which I used for entertaining live updates during the game. In which case, so I missed the posting window of opportunity to an aftergame wire story by about a minute. Oh well, whatever.

Vince Young leads Texas to 41-38 win over USC

Reggie Bush just lost a lot of money. And that's fantastic. Would the Texans take Young #1??

A coach with a heart and the brains to go with it

Should have called a Hail Mary.

Saints May Be Gone for Good

Keep the Saints in town? For god's sakes, there's been enough suffering in the Superdome! Honestly, as a Saints fan for most of my life, the true purpose of the team is to bring laughter and a common bond of misery. Yeah yeah, it would be great if the Saints actually won a playoff game or something, but seriously, I think everybody in New Orleans really enjoys how fantastically they lose all the time. They're pretty much our lovable dumb pets in the South. In the hopes of bringing a bit of levity about the situation, here's some jokes I've personally heard from New Orleans evacuees/ Saints fans in the last week (yes, most of which lost homes and are grieving): What's the difference between the Saints Offensive Line and the Levees? The Levees held up for at least one blitz. They couldn't evacuate everyone? Couldn't they have started a Saints game? City would have emptied out in an hour. "Wow, that's the first time anybody from New Orleans has been in that endzone." ...etc. etc. Yeah I know, people horrifically died. But jokes help. That's why we need the Saints around.

Texas politician battles sexy cheerleading

I'm pretty sure that High School Cheerleaders really don't need bootylicious "breaking down" to be considered objects of male sexual fantasy.

'I like the smell of my grape ball'

Someday, my dream of a giant Tootsie Roll Lollipop that doubles as a bowling ball will finally come true.

The Anaheim Mighty Ducks are to no longer be under Disney's wing.

I'm rooting for the Anaheim Emilios Estevez. And according to IMDB, the Mighty Ducks FOUR is in production for a 2005 release.

Tying winning to player salaries -- could it work?

Man, Corey Dillon would have totally gone bezerker Last Boy Scout style on the Bengals with a machine gun if this was done in the NFL.

World Series Game 4

I blame Scott Stapp and Jimmy Fallon.

World Series Game 3

Not really caring that badly, I would really like Boston to lose the next two games, thus having the 'other shoe drop' to the freaking-out Red Sox Nation, then wrapping it up in an apocalyptic celebration at Fenway.

That Leon bit? Now you've just gone too far.

Just shoe it

Upon further review, I realize now that the Nike commercial would have worked whether they won or lost. Which makes it an even better commercial. The question is however, if they have a World Series edit where the geezers have heartattacks and die from happiness.... or despair.

This is it

There's a shot of a couple of young Boston fans watching a game in the stands. The years tick by on the bottom, just heart break after heartbreak. The Boston fans get older and older.... until finally, they're a bunch of geezers. The year says 2004, and the Sox just won. The geezers are in complete disbelief. "Just Do It"
