Sports Bio

I once hit a home run in a Little League All-Star Game that was being broadcast on the radio. The announcer called it a "titanic moon shot". I still have the ball.

There were five players chosen ahead of Derek Jeter in the '92 MLB draft. What are they doing today?:

The only thing I regret is not taking steroids, as bad as it sounds, [Mottola] said. Im not mad at them. Im more mad at the system that allowed it to happen. Maybe if I had done it, Id be living the way theyre living. But I know the way I played, and Im not bitter at all.

The understated elegance of the Yankees' Rivera.: For what he does, hes maybe the most dominant athlete other than Bill Russell that I know, [Reggie] Jackson said. But its also in the way he does it. Quiet. Humble. Mariano is regal, baseball royalty.

Rock Jocks: 20 People Who Made the Cut in Both Music and Sports: "Joe Frazier could pack a punch as a boxer, but he was hitless as a singer. Deion Sanders was great at baseball and football, but he dropped the ball as a hip-hop act -- and let's never speak of the rapping of basketball's Shaquille O'Neal and soccer's Andy Cole. In contrast, these 20 people have had notable forays in music and athletics, proving that as hard as it is to make it in one, it's even harder to succeed in both."

Whitey Ford Never Started an "Ultimate" Game

'Ford won the fourth game, and the Yankees had their sweep.'

Should they have played three more just so Whitey could pitch in the seventh?

Ravens Rookie Kindle Injures Head in Fall

TWO flights? Wouldn't you usually have to turn the corner to get to the second flight? Sounds fishy to me.

"I still have yet to see Strasburg pitch because Major League Baseball has deemed that Raleigh is in the DC baseball market."

That's OK, Salt Lake City is in the Diamondbacks' market AND the Rockies'. 525 miles one way, 535 the other.

Could Chris Paul head to the New York Knicks?

It shows how completely I have ignored the NBA for years that I figured this was some sort of joke, whereby the writer took a LeBron James story and inserted the name of some bench-warmer, in order to make it look like the Knicks weren't interested in LeBron all along but some no-namer.

Imagine my surprise when I googled Chris Paul.

Driver Killed in Crash at NHRA Northwest Nationals

He really didn't seem to hit that hard. I've seen many sand pit rides that looked worse, and the driver walked away unscathed.

Front page of the site (and of the locker room) is a mess in IE. Is that intentional?
