Stick that in your ear, Lee Corso

I hate Lee Corso. The ESPN college football commentator is ignorant, annoying and a waste of air time. The thing that solidified my view of Corso was 1992's Heisman Trophy race when Corso touted Miami QB Gino Torretta week after week over an obviously superior player -- Marshall Faulk. Torretta won, probably with some help […]

That's about right

I mentioned the Olshansky/Nalen incident earlier this week. Well, the league office has spoken. Olshansky is being fined $10,000 -- $5,000 for each blow to Nalen's thick head. Nalen is being fined $25,000 -- a small price to pay for his try at ending Olshansky's career.

Two wrongs

I watched the Sunday night Chargers-Broncos game with Hoystory the Elder and a group of current and retired teachers and administrators. It was an exciting game. With last week's come-from-behind victory over the Bengals combined with last nights, I feel like the old Air Coryell days have returned. One thing remains the same, and I'm […]

Must-read

There's a great article in the Sunday New York Times Magazine on Michael Oher. My favorite part: From the first play of the game, the Munford defensive end who lined up directly across from Michael targeted him for special ridicule. The Munford player was about 6-foot-2 and couldn’t have weighed more than 220 pounds, and […]

Oh, and congratulations on taking your dear, sweet time getting a story up ESPN.com. More than 45 minutes after a Major League record is set, the MLB homepage looked like this:

It's football season again!

And I'd like to take this opportunity to note No. 4/5 Cal Poly SLO's victory over Weber State. After trouncing Division II foe Fort Lewis last week 44-0, Cal Poly followed up with another shutout with yesterday's 17-0 victory. That's right. Two weeks in and ZERO points allowed. Go Mustangs!

Major League smackdown

A federal judge ruled yesterday that the basic statistics about sports and the players' names are not subject to copyright. Medler barred the baseball players union and MLB.com, the league's Internet arm that operates its own fantasy league, from interfering with CBC. "The undisputed facts establish that the names and playing records of (MLB) players […]

What Eric Wynalda said

When the U.S. Soccer team lost earlier this week to the Czech Republic, I was disappointed. The Americans played lazy and uninspiring soccer. Today's game was a mirror image with the U.S. forcing the action on the Italian side of the pitch, even when they were down 10 men to nine. They still ended up […]

A gardener at the Olympiastadion reported a suspicious device about 30 yards from the stadium. The […]
