2008 Jazzy Awards – Turkeys of the Year – ESPN Buying Rights, PSLs

Well, it’s the day after Thanksgiving and everyone except me and a few other Turkey haters are eating leftover dry stringy bird remnants. I had porterhouse steak yesterday, (***insert Caddyshack reference***:  “Oh!  Porterhouse!”)  as usual, and watched everyone else fall asleep due to tryptophan or whatever it’s called. So it’s time to give out the Dry...

Reads of the Day – Mike Vaccaro, Karl MacGinty

Karl MacGinty has some thoughts on the why the Irish Government should bail out the Irish Open. Sounds good to me, that tournament rocks.  Wanna bet Padraig Harrington agrees? Of course, one of my favorite all-star writers, Mike Vaccaro has this throwaway classic about Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price, who rocked my beloved Red Sox to sleep.  Man, come all the way...

Contest Winners Living the Dream at Pro Sports Team Challenge

Would you like to hear great two reasons to play a little low-limit on-line poker? Brandon Akey of Wooster, Ohio had never flown in an airplane in his life. “I’ve taken one vacation in my life, when I was in eighth grade, and that was to Florida” he remarked with a smile and a shrug. But now Brandon and a friend have left snowy, rainy Ohio long behind and are kicking...

Soccer Alert – Euro 2008 Begins!

Once again, my beloved Azzuri (that’s Italy, people), get treated like they’re Albania when it comes to the group stage.  World Champs and we’re in a SECOND “group of death,” just like in the 2006 World Cup.  This time we get France (runner-up at the World Cup…oh it felt good to type that), Romania (strong), and The Netherlands...

Czaban on threes, Robot All-Star Baseball Team, Hacksteaks with Herzafter Sauce

Thank Goodness Geoff Ogilvy temporarily halted the canonization of St. Eldrick. If I have to endure one more sacchrinny-sweet article full of nothing more than rehashed hagiographic hero worship, I’m going to eat my boxers. Hagiographic – (adj.), defining a biography or description of the lives of the saints. Hagiographic (n.) – saintliness. Anyway...

Videos of the WEAK! – NBA Vulgarity, Volleyball Tomfoolery

Three separate instances of NBA vulgarity have my Hogwarts in a knot today. First, Reggie Miller uses a crass profanity (the “T-word”) to describe an open three pointer. Thanks for proving that the Gentlemen’s Club atmosphere of the NBA is still its stock in trade. That comment had no business going out over the air. David Stern must be in spin...

Congress to Cook Clemens’s Goose

Filing that lawsuit may be the worst decision of Roger Clemens’s life. It was bad enough he tried to bully and intimidate a government witness, (not to mention run him out of money in a massive lawsuit), but when he alleged governmental misconduct, that made both sides of the aisle stand up and take notice. Congress is now demanding not only the tapes of BOTH...

Clemens’s lawsuit will give him fig leaf to cover up before Congress

I’ll make this short and sweet. Clemens filed suit against MacNamee for defamation this morning. He has simultaneously created an out from the thorny problem of dealing with the Congressional grilling. “Sorry, sir..but I have a lawsuit going and that’s the proper time and proper manner.” We were having this discussion somewhere else, so...
