Pacman Jones Files Appeal To Suspension


This guy still doesn't get it. And with each passing day it becomes more and more apparent that he never will. I understand that he's probably having a hard time dealing with the amount of money he'll lose due to his suspension, but he has no one to blame but himself for all the trouble he's gotten into. And to be even more frank, if he wasn't a star athlete in the NFL we all know that he would've gotten some jail time for at least half of his infractions. But instead of laying low and finding himself some new "friends", he wants to whine about his suspension being "too harsh"?!? Dude, gimme a break.

Can Bill Belichick Tame Randy Moss?


Either that or Belichick's trying to one-up ol' buddy Parcells by showing him how he can handle one of the league's premiere bad men.

Grant Hill Should Definitely Retire


Grant Hill signed a $93 million contract back in '00 so even his great-grandchildren will be well taken care of, he was a 7-time NBA All-Star and he'll always be one of the greatest college basketball players in NCAA history. But even I'm sick and tired of hearing about Grant Hill being injured. So if he's serious about retiring now he should just do it. He'd make a great coach tho'.

Defending Champs Are On The Brink


Shocking! But the Heat have no one to blame but themselves because no way do you miss 19 free throws in a game and expect to win. So now with times being what they are and the Heat a game away from going on vacation, Pat Riley may want to look into hiring Ed Palubinskas in order to save his season..

Celtics Cut Sebastian Telfair Over Gun Charge


Is it any wonder why the Celtics organization still has a reputation for being racist? I don't even like Telfair (who should've done at least two years in college before going straight to the NBA from high school because he clearly wasn't ready) and to be fair this is the second time Sebastian's gotten in trouble over carrying a gun, but whatever happened to innocent till proven guilty? Nevermind the case that an argument could easily be made that professional athletes do need to protect themselves when out in public. In other words, the Celtics could've at least waited to see this played out before cutting Telfair loose.

What's A 4-Year-Old Doing On A Football Sideline?


Listen, I feel bad for what happened to Caden Thomas (thank goodness he wasn't seriously injured) as much as the next guy, but from what I've read its seems to me that the family of the kid is just as responsible for this tyke getting hurt as much as the Colorado St. wide receiver who ran into him. Bottom line, a 4yo kid or any kid for that matter, has no business being on the sidelines of a football game. That's just dumb.

Can Philip Hughes Save The Yankees?


Damn, times must getting rather desperate in the Bronx now that they've called up their number one pitching prospect to give 'em a hand. Then too, when a team like the Devil Rays are beating your brains in, one can understand. Personally, I'd seriously look into bringing Bernie Williams back myself.

Warriors Not Just Happy To Be Here


Ok, it's only Game 1 of a best-of-7 series, but considering how much Baron Davis and the Warriors have had the Mavs number this season, if you're Mark Cuban you're sweating a few bricks right about now.

Lil' Romeo on the USC Basketball Team?


Not that anyone should really care about this sort of thing, but word has it that rapper/actor Lil' Romeo will soon be headed to USC to play for their basketball team. Now if he was going there to be the team's mascot I'd understand, but if this news is really true, does that mean that he can really play? Or is daddy Master P pulling some major strings here? Stay tuned.

Mr. April Strikes Again, But What About The Yankees?


With his torrid start to the season, the sports media is doing a great job reminding us of what a great player this Alex Rodriguez guy is. But we sort of already knew that Arod is pretty good. So maybe someone needs to remind the media nuts that the 3rd place Yankees suck right now, Mariano Rivera has been looking kinda human of late and the Yanks are in danger of being swept in Beantown this weekend. Nevermind the fact that as the Mariners, Rangers and George Steinbrenners Yanks have known for three years now, having Arod (no matter how terrific his numbers are) on your team doesn't equate to winning world championships. And last time I checked isn't winning what it's supposed to be all about?

(9-4) Mets 9, (6-8) Florida 2


Brilliant performance by John Maine (2-0) last night, who had a no-hitter before giving up a single to lead off the seventh in New York's 9-2 win over the Marlins. Maine gave up two hits before leaving; Miguel Cabrera singled to led off the seventh for Florida. Joe Borchard had a two-run homer for NY. Maine walked four and struck out seven. By the way, nothing against David Wright who I love, but hitting streaks that started in a different season should never count.

Dirk Nowitzki For MVP


I agree with this guy. Dirk Nowitzki should win the MVP award this season. The Mavs will enter the playoffs with the best regular season record and will serve as a heavy favorite to win their first NBA championship this year. And let's face it, despite great contributions from guys like Josh Howard and Jerry Stackhouse coming off the bench, Dirk and his 25.1ppg, 9.4rpg are essentially a one-man gang. Let's not forget too that the Mavs are an incredible 29-8 on the road this year. So while Steve Nash had another great year, Nowitzki deserves to be the guy who ends his MVP streak.

Message To Joey Crawford: Don't F-ck With David Stern


Crawford deserved his suspension. His actions, which included challenging Tim Duncan to a fight, were over the top. Yet, I never thought that Stern would come down on him like he did. Good for Stern and good for the NBA.

Carl Pavano's Free Ride Continues . . .


Carl Pavano is back on the disabled list again. So it'll be another week or two before he gets a chance to increase his total of 4 wins since he signed a 4-year, $39.95 million dollar contract with the Yankees in '05.

MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared in court Thursday and learned he will go on trial Aug. 20 on charges of drug possession and driving under the influence of
drugs.


Tyson was fresh out of a California rehabilitation facility and said very little during the five-minute
proceeding.


"Yes, ma'am" were his only words, uttered after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens asked if he agreed to the trial date, which was pushed back 30 days at his attorneys'
request.


Tyson did not speak outside the courtroom, where reporters peppered him with questions and followed him to a Cadillac Escalade.


"We're very pleased with Mike's progress in treatment," said Richard Schonfeld, one of Tyson's lawyers. "He's 72 days sober. We're proud of him."


Mike Tyson has long needed help, too bad he can't blame boxing anymore for his problems.

No big surprise here. The only question is whether Greg Oden will leave college too.

"I enjoyed my year here at Texas," Durant said in a statement released before his news conference. "All the fans and everyone here at Texas made me feel right at home, considering I was so far from home. I will always be a Longhorn and never forget what the people of Texas have done for me."

After an All-American season in which he swept the major player of the year awards, few expected Durant to play another season in college.

Now the question is whether he'll be the first pick of the June 28 draft. Durant and Ohio State's freshman center Greg Oden -- who has not yet said if he'll leave college -- are considered the
likely first two picks.


"He's made history," Texas coach Rick Barnes said Monday night at the team banquet. "No one's done what he did this year. He swept every major award as a freshman. It's a year we may not ever see
again by anybody. It's remarkable."


Players have until April 29 to declare for the June 28 draft in New York.

Game #1: Mets 6, Cardinals 1


Good start to the season. Glavine pitched great through the 6th inning, they got timely hits, sterling defense and Willie Randolph did the right thing by keeping Paul Lo Duca in the two hole. Can't believe that drunk Tony LaRussa had the nerve call Beltran "foolish" for successfully attempting to throw out David Eckstien at home in the 6th, but of course LaRussa thinks that he knows everything.
