It's why I don't play that game

The Union-Tribune has an interesting article on attendance figures in sports. Maybe this will put a halt to the guessing game that Hoy senior likes to play at San Diego State basketball games. Then again, probably not.

Sign of the night

Red Sox fan favorite turned Yankee Johnny Damon returned to Boston last night. The Sox won, but it was a sign held by a fan that had me chuckling:

Equal Pay for Equal Work

The WTA -- the professional women's tennis association -- is complaining because the women still aren't getting paid as much as the men. The WTA Tour, which has lobbied for equal pay for years, expressed disappointment that Wimbledon "continues to promote inequality in pay across the board between men and women." "In the 21st century, […]

Getting the Tawana Brawley vibe

Yesterday the DNA test results came back in the case of a stripper who claimed that she was beaten and raped by several Duke University lacrosse players. The tests showed no DNA match with any of the 46 lacrosse team members who were tested. This news has apparently failed to have any impact on the […]

Barroid Bonds

The Giants juiced-up left fielder Barroid Bonds got a well-deserved, vicious welcome during Monday's season opener here in San Diego. Bonds continues to deny a mountain of evidence that shows he used a plethora of steroids and other designer drugs to bulk up and improve his home run hitting. Bonds and his (few) defenders like […]

Heartwarming story

The Padres Geoff Blum was traded to the White Sox last season as they made their run for their first World Series title since 1917. Blum hit a home run in his only World Series at-bat in the 14th inning of Game 3 to give the Sox the vicotry. But what had been going on […]

Sue the NCAA

While I'm generally not a big fan of lawsuits, I'd like you to imagine this scenario. You buy tickets for a concert. You have assigned seating and you show up well before the concert is scheduled to start. The arena where the concert is being held, however, doesn't open the gates until just a few […]

Congrats San Diego State

The San Diego State Aztecs men's basketball team locked up its first Mountain West Conference title yesterday with a trouncing of visiting Wyoming. This is the Aztecs first conference championship since 1978, when they were in the defunct Pacific Coast Athletic Association. It was not, as the I-D-10-T on the radio said, their first conference […]

Sports update

I got to go to the Utah vs. SDSU men's basketball game today before I went into work. The Aztecs had their win streak snapped, but the what struck me most about this game was the poor quality of the officiating. Several times Utah's center would set a screen for a guard and then turn […]

USA vs. Canada

I went to the game this evening between the U.S. and Canada men's soccer teams. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. The biggest news of the night was soccer phenom Freddy Adu's first appearance on the men's national team, making him the youngest man to ever play for the team. Though he only played […]

Taped The Argument earlier today, fumbled through some closing remarks; this from @michaelbd is the more eloquent version of what I tried to say:

For some amount of time today, the CA DOJ's new data website leaked name and addresses of people with CCW permits.

Someone PM'd me with video evidence of it (can't share to protect confidential info).

Here is a reddit thread with discussion.
