Someday, MLB will get around to banning the "wide takeout slide" at second base, like they did the "plow into the catcher" play at home.

Pirates' star rookie injured in take out slide.

What Coghlan did was perfectly acceptable in today's version of major league baseball, but maybe it shouldn't be allowed any more.

Andy Reid, why? Under 40 seconds left. Tie game. At your 20. Take a knee and go to OT.

I know that there are NY Giants fans who saw that last minute fumble return for the win and, thinking of the Joe Pisarcik and Herman Edwards "Miracle", said:

"WHY COULDN'T THAT HAVE HAPPENED WHILE ANDY REID WAS STILL IN PHILADELPHIA?"

Pre-season college football previewers had Louisville picked to make a major impact this year, maybe even winning the ACC.

Instead, they're now 0-3 and Petrino looks like he's ready to just get on a motorsickle and go flying down country lanes all by himself.

Petrino can be the next OC at Alabama, because some sucker is bound to think Lane Kiffin can be a head coach again any minute now.
