He's playing for the Rangers, so he may not get his due on the national level, but IAN KINSLER IS ABSOLUTELY KILLING IT (especially at home). Sunday night, he went yard, bringing his numbers up to .337 (.389 OBP), nine homers, 25 RBIs, 23 runs, seven SBs and a .991 fielding percentage.
After Friday, the day Rep.
1. Even if he did at one point compare it to communism, Barton knows what he's talking about when addressing the inconsistencies of the BCS.
2. Swofford stood up for a system that is universally acknowledged to be a money grab. Even by Swofford.
3. It's good to hear from Utah and Boise State, as they've been repeatedly cheated out of a lot of money (and possibly titles), but it would've been nice to see representatives from more powerful schools joining the chorus.
4. This isn't anywhere near over, so stay tuned in the coming weeks.
Not that it'll do anything, but somebody should make a documentary tearing down the BCS by badgering important college football figures for interviews. Clearly the obvious option here is
Is this matchup not what's great about the playoffs? The most complete offensive player takes on the best on-ball defender for a back and forth that will last four to seven games. In addition, the fact that they both relish getting in each other's face should make for excellent entertainment, especially since
Because of its refusal to wear pants, the nationally ranked Eugene Gentlemen's Organization (EGO) has been barred from competing in both the regionals and the upcoming national tournament. As both an Oregon alumnus and simply a person who is staunchly anti-pant, I don't think I'm overstating the stance EGO has taken by comparing it to the struggle and eventual social accomplishments of
The Vikings have said that soon they're willing to have conversations regarding Favre and the team's future. If there's any place that Fav-reh should make his new home, Minnesota actually makes sense. I'm pretty sure the Twin Cities have the coldest climate (hey-o!) of any NFL city, so when he presumably retires for the last time, maybe the city can send him out Eskimo-style on ice floe in the land of a thousand frozen lakes. This story has legs.
With the NBA playoffs entering the second round this week, emotions run high, tension becomes palpable in packed arenas and Lakers fans, well, politely send Blackberry messages to their friends as they flip $300 haircuts out of their eyes. Keep in mind I'm a big Lakers fan and know fully well that L.A. has fantastic, passionate fans sitting in the upper level of Staples Center (that's closer to Venice Beach than center court), but really, if you're
At first glance, this week's games all look winnable (the Diamondbacks followed by the Nationals), but you failed to consider the two words that have been synonymous with "streak buster" since the dawn of time (or at least 2003, and then 2006-present) -- "
The most hated graduate of the most hated college basketball program has complained that fans' jabs are failing to impress. The Orlando guard claims he's heard "nothing remotely creative or funny," and hopes he'll hear more creative taunts now that he'll get some playing time in Round 2 of the playoffs. As much fun as thinking of ways to get under the skin of the Magic's ninth man is, random NBA fans seem to be thinking about things like, "Wow,
It appears that the Cubs have a list of interesting, likable celebrities and simply got to the end, crossed off the final name and promptly invited the ever-deplorable Ms. Richards
