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.

The Bond's Debacle


FOXNews.com - Barry Bonds Shouldn't Be Allowed to Break Babe Ruth's Total - John Gibson | Judge Napolitano | John Gibson | Big Story Weekend: "Barry Bonds is heading to the plate Tuesday night to try to hit the homerun that would tie Babe Ruth's total. And if he is fortunate to hit two — which would break Ruth's total — it will make Bonds the No. 2 all-time homerun hitter.

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig should be waiting for him at home plate to send him back to the dugout, back to the clubhouse, back home and not let him near a major league ballpark until the issue is settled once and for all whether Bonds arrived at this historic moment on the strength of arms and legs juiced up with illegal steroids.

I think it is obvious he did. I can't think of any serious person who doubts it. The book 'Game of Shadows' by two San Francisco Chronicle reporters is evidence enough for me. The reporters demonstrate with clarity and authority that Bonds got to where he is on illegal drugs.

He should not be allowed to break a hallowed baseball record by cheating."

In an era where steroids were not illegal, and any other player on the field could have used them, why in tarnation should he not recieve what he has earned? Babe Ruth played in his era, Barry Bonds is playing in his era.
Here's a question. Is the pitiching easier or harder then it used to be?
Are the parks the same size as they used to be?
Is the game the same it used to be?

Despite the pitching being harder, the ball parks being bigger, and the game over analysed to any detail, Barry Bonds is still hitting the home runs in this league. If he breaks the record, he has earned it.
He has already earned his way in to the Hall of Fame.

McNair Staying?

The departure of Titans QB Steve McNair to the Ravens seems like a done deal,
but coach Jeff Fisher is reportedly still hoping the strong-armed QB will stick
around for one more year, says City Paper writer Terry McCormick

my anti Matt moment

At Notre Dame, against an inspired but under-talented defense, Leinart threw a flock of off-target wobblers -- two of which were intercepted. Yes, on the do-or-die fourth-and-9 from his 26, Leinart called a heady audible and lofted a beautiful throw to Jarrett for the game saver. Yes, Leinart went for broke and scored the game-winning touchdown on a spinning sneak.

But he received an illegal push from Bush. In fact, Reggie bailed out Matt throughout the game, making play after oh-my-goodness play to stave off what kept looking like the upset of the century.

ILLEGAL!!!

In pro football, the focus will remain on Leinart. Relatively, his team won't be nearly as good as USC's, and the opposition will be much better. If Leinart gets down on himself, who will pick him up?

This is the Jets' savior?


The Jets better choice, But luckily The Broncos got him.

Cutler has a gun for an arm and a quick trigger. Like Namath, he plays with a cocky, captivating flair.

But the better comparison is to a young Favre. Here is a young gunslinger who will try just about any trick shot. At Vandy, he pulled off most of them because he (and in turn, his receivers) believed he could. Cutler is fearless to a fault. If necessary, he'll run over a linebacker for a first down. At 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, this kid is as bench-press strong and durable and as mentally and physically tough as any college quarterback I've seen.


Blue light special!!

In 10 years, the Tennessee Titans' first two picks of 2006 will be regarded as the greatest one-two steal in draft history.

The Titans got Vince Young with the third pick -- just the way Michael Jordan fell into the Chicago Bulls' happy laps. Then the Titans snatched LenDale White -- who should have been a top-10 pick midway through the second round?
In 10 years, Vince Young will have won two Super Bowls and will be a cinch Hall of Famer.In 10 years, LenDale White will be considered even better than Jerome Bettis was as a chain-moving touchdown machine. If, moments after the Texas-USC national championship game, you had told me the Titans would wind up with Vince and LenDale

In 10 years, Reggie Bush will be known as a Pro Bowl back who isn't always there for his team when it needs him. It's baffling why his USC teammates, White and Winston Justice, fell because of "character" issues but Bush didn't. Perhaps Bush's alleged two-year dealings with a documented gang member did play a small part in the Texans' opting for Williams, though they insisted it did not.

In 10 years, Denver fans will look back and say, "Mike Shanahan won a Super Bowl on April 29, 2006." Incredibly, Shanahan went from coaching the favorite in the AFC Championship Game to trading all the way to 11th in the first round -- and stealing the Jay Cutler pot.But in 10 years, Cutler will be regarded as the NFL's most exciting quarterback. He will have won at least one Super Bowl throwing to Javon Walker, whom Shanahan stole from Green Bay for a second-round pick

Green Bay public schools

After the Packers took A.J. Hawk with the fifth pick in the draft, ESPN cut to a live shot of Green Bay fans celebrating at Lambeau Field. One fan, directly in front of the camera, was showing off a No. 84 Javon Walker jersey. But over "Walker" on the back of the jersey he had taped a piece of paper on which he had written "Trader." Sadly, he -- and several of his friends -- were quite proud of this misspelling. (Assuming, of course, that it was a misspelling of "traitor," and not a reference to Walker trading furs with French trappers and Native Americans during his time in Wisconsin. If fur trading is, in fact, a hobby Walker picked up while he was in the upper Midwest, I apologize for my ignorance and for implying that Green Bay's schools are churning out illiterate students.)

Way to go kids!!
