ok folks as you know i Dont like soccer but due to this being a SPORTS BLOG.
i have to say way to go Italy . they won the world cup.


I have been gone

I had to take a leave of absensce from thisbog due to my extensive summer activities.

But I am back NOW!!



Wow now I can actually say something about thee mavs and not feel guilty because they arent national sports. but anyways the mavs had a mediocre game on moday night wich ended up with the heat just tinking worse than the mavs. oh yea and we also leans what happens when Stackhouse runs into Shaq, three stitches in the nose. Dirk had a bad night but Jason JET Terry came through for the Mavs. wade had a ok game but he had no one behind him backing him up. the Heat's bench only scored 2 points the whole game! so the Mavs bench can score points when the rest of the team is having a bad night. But the secret of the succes is that they have a good coach. Avery Johnson is a great coach and Nothing agaainst Don Nelson he was a great coacch but he probaby wouldnt have gotten them this far.

So Go mavs and lets roll on sunday.


the next slugger?

The chase for history didn't end with Barry Bonds passing Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list. In fact, another pursuit is continuing courtesy of Albert Pujols.

On Monday, Pujols hit his 25th home run of the season, lifting the Cardinals to a win over the Astros. Pujols is right on pace with some of the game's all-time greats in pursuit of the single-season home run record, chasing names like Bonds and Mark McGwire.

And with 64 RBI, Pujols is one-third of the way to Hack Wilson's single-season RBI mark of 190.


Terry is out!!

Mark Cuban, the Mavericks' owner, made the following comments in response to Terry's suspension in an e-mail sent to ESPN on Thursday.

"It's not right, and I told the league so.

"It's certainly not consistent with what the league has done in the past.

"Jason responds to a guy hipchecking him in the head while he is on his back and can't protect himself and he gets suspended. You can't throw a punch while you are on your back and someone is laying on you.

"If Jason had tried to get him off with an open hand, or an elbow, we wouldnt be talking about this at all. Look at [Manu] Ginobli in the replays, he is staring at everything that happens and doesn't respond at all, but all the while you can see the grimace on Jason's face.

"The league also said they didn't know if the [Michael] Finley piledriver with his hip to Jason's head while Ginobli was lying on him was intentional or not. So they couldn't do anything about it.

"Unbelievable. When it's all [said] and done, this series could end up being talked about for all the wrong reasons."

Jason terry is out for one game without pay andwhile watching the footage I didnt see anymore than is already done in the normal game.

this series could be rememberd for all the all wrong reasons.


This would really stink.

Justin Gatlin equaled but did not break the 100-meter world record at the Qatar Grand Prix last week, the sport's governing body said Wednesday.

The International Association of Athletics Federations said a timing error in Doha gave Gatlin a time of 9.76 seconds, which was one-hundredth of a second below Asafa Powell's world mark of 9.77.

The IAAF said Gatlin's time was actually 9.766 seconds, and that should have been manually rounded up to 9.77.

Nothing like math!!


Doug Flutie Retires :(

Doug Flutie retired Monday, ending a 21-year career in which the undersized Heisman Trophy winner threw one of college football's most famous passes and played a dozen seasons in the NFL.

Flutie finishes with 14,715 passing yards and 86 touchdowns in the NFL, spending most of his time as a backup. Last season, he converted the league's first drop kick for an extra point since the 1941 NFL title game.

"If that ends up being my last play, it wouldn't be bad," Flutie said after the game, a mostly meaningless regular season-ending loss to the Miami Dolphins.

His college career was also punctuated by a play that endures as one of the most memorable in the sport. He won the 1984 Heisman after connecting with Gerard Phelan on a desperation 48-yard touchdown pass that beat Miami as time expired.

"I think Doug deserves it,'' Belichick said after the game," sensing that the play would be Flutie's football finale. "He is a guy that adds a lot to this game of football, has added a lot through his great career -- running, passing and now kicking."

Doug will be a college football analyst for espn and abc.

Marcus vick??

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins saw enough potential in Marcus Vick -- both on- and off-the-field -- to believe he deserves a chance as a free agent.
Marcus VickVick signed with the Dolphins on Monday, agreeing to a free-agent deal after his many problems at Virginia Tech cost him a chance to be selected in the NFL draft.

"As an organization, we did an enormous amount of research, including consulting with professionals in detailed, in-depth analysis to feel comfortable that giving Marcus an opportunity as a free agent is a risk worth taking," Dolphins coach Nick Saban said in a statement released by the team.

"I want to make it very clear that we will not condone any behavior issues in the future relative to Marcus Vick. Marcus acknowledges that he has made some mistakes, all of which has resulted in severe consequences for him. They have helped him learn that he will need to make much better choices and decisions in the future or risk similar consequences that could jeopardize his career as a professional player."

But his career with the Hokies included many transgressions. He made an obscene gesture to fans during a game at West Virginia, and stomped on Louisville player Elvis Dumervil's leg during the Gator Bowl.

Vick was suspended by Virginia Tech for the 2004 season because of legal problems, then was eventually dismissed from the team after being stopped for speeding and driving with a revoked or suspended license

Now how much resarch did they do on Ricky Williams??
now he owes them 9 millon dollars and he is suspended for another whole season.
