Kevin Garnett Is A Boston Celtic

Gotta' figure that there are a lot of jealous GM's out there because only two former teammates (who happen to be members of Boston's last championship team) could've pulled off a blockbuster deal like this. Give credit to Garnett too for never complaining about the lack of talent surrounding him all those years in Minnesota, he's long deserved a real shot at a championship and now he'll get it.

Bill Walsh R.I.P.

Bill Walsh, Bill Parcells and Joe Gibbs will always be associated together. And they were each great coaches who coached great teams that made me fall in love with football.

Deion Sanders Is An Idiot

Neion Deion goes out of his way to defend Michael Vick, even comparing watching dogs killing each other for sport to wanting to have the "biggest chains". I loved Deion as a player, but as a commentator he's as dumb as a rock.

Floyd Mayweather To "Return" To Boxing

You just knew all that "retirement" talk was just that . . . talk. But personally I'd much rather see Floyd "comeback" against Miguel Cotto rather than Ricky Hatton.

Curtis Martin Retires

He was a class act off the field and one of the greatest running backs ever on the field. A lot of today's NFL players could learn from Curtis Martin.

Michael Vick Pleads "Not Guilty"

Oh, to have the whole world on a string, yet risk losing it all over sheer stupidity.

Training Camp Starts In Two Days

From ESPN.com:

From his first practice with the Chicago Bears, Thomas Jones looked like a star. Unlike his days with the Cardinals, Jones was no-nonsense. He took the handoff, made one cut and moved with great speed. The Jets needed a runner like that. Last season, it was a weekly adventure figuring out who was going to be the Jets' lead back for any given game. Now, Jones can give Chad Pennington a dependable running attack and the potential of a 100-yard game on any given Sunday. How he fits into the offense will be the key to the Jets' season.

Barry Bonds ex-Mistress To Pose For Playboy

Well, she has average looks at best, but doesn't mean that her bod isn't dope. Plus, Playboy is a master at airbrushing so she should be fine. Can't blame her for banking in on her 15 minutes either.

Why Does Lawrence Frank Get An Extension?

Lawrence Frank has had a worse record running the New Jersey Nets than his predecessor Byron Scott. Plus, while Scott led his team to a couple of Eastern Conference championships, the Nets haven’t sniffed the NBA Finals under Frank (who arguably has worked with better talent than Scott). Yet, Scott was fired midway through his third season with the Nets, while today we find out that Frank, about to enter his 4th season, has gotten an extension. Doesn’t make any sense to me.

Emmitt Smith Needs To STFU!

Or stick to dancing or something. Seriously, I believe in "innocent till proven guilty" as much as the next guy, but the idea that the Feds are targeting Michael Vick is just asinine. If he actually took part in betting on dogfighting is one thing, but Vick had to know dogs were daily being killed for money in the house HE bought and at worst, he ignored it. I'm all for letting the criminal justice system play out in this case, but now is not the time to be defending Michael Vick.

Bernard Hopkins Will Beat Winky Wright Tonight

I don't think that there will be a knockout, but Winky might be wishing that Bernard just put him away early after the punishment he's gonna' receive tonight.

Is The NBA On The Fix?

David Stern's league is already suffering from low TV ratings, poor image problems, overpaid players and dumb on-court rules that cost teams championships. But the idea of a ref betting on games and possibly engaging in point-shaving takes the NBA's problems to another level. And If it turns out to be true than Stern needs to resign.

Can Mike Francesca Shut Up About A-Rod Already?

Listening to WFAN everyday like I do, this morning I got to listen to afternoon host Mike Francesca carry on and on about how great Alex Rodriguez is (yunno, just in case you didn't already have a clue). Of course with the Yankees still more than 7 games out of playoff contention, you'd think that Francesca, a huge Yankee fan, would understand that it's about his TEAM winning, not the splendor of one individual (esp. one whose never won anything in his career) player. With that said I guess we can just add the All-Knowing Francesca to the long list of media pundits who've been conned by one man's stats instead of where his team is at the end of the season.
Or perhaps Francesca has never heard of Derek Jeter.

Magglio Ordonez Is The A.L. MVP

While everyone concentrates as usual on A-Rod, Magglio Ordonez is also tearing up the American League and best yet, his team, unlike A-Rod's, is in first place.

0-Fer-20 Bonds Sits With Fatigued Legs

The guy is so great that sometimes we forget that he's approaching 43 and playing in the league that doesn't have a DH. With that said give him all the rest he needs.

Arturo Gatti Needs to Stay Retired

Gatti will always be known as a true warrior with heart and his fights were always exciting, but when you get knocked out by a "Contender", you should know that it's time to hang up the gloves for good.

Ichiro Signs 5-Year Extension With Mariners

Damn, with his free agency pending I was kind of hoping that the Mets could get Ichiro and put him in right field come '08. Funny tho' that this extension would happen so soon after Mike Hargrove surprised everybody and quit the other day. Word has it that Ichiro and Hargrove didn't get along.

David Beckham On Cover Of New S.I.

Personally, I don't see how a guy whose married to a Spice Girl, is way too goodlooking (which apparently makes him really popular in gay circles) and seems to be only a respectable player can make Americans go crazy over soccer. But hey, I could be wrong.

Antoine Walker OK After Home Robbery

Damn. And this wasn't the first time he's been robbed. While I don't advocate athletes carrying guns, a bodyguard makes perfect sense esp. if you got loot like that which most NBA guys do.

Iverson Loses Lawsuit

But when you think about it, $260,000 is really chump change to Iverson. So he should consider himself lucky that the jury's verdict wasn't much more.

Serena Williams Carries On

Nice to see Serena overcome all that pain she was in. I hope she her or Venus win Wimbledon this year. And for the record, is there a more overrated tennis player than Amelie Mauresmo?

Cynthia Rodriguez Is As Dumb As Her Husband

We all know how much Alex Rodriguez loves to do stupid things to call attention to himself, but I had no idea how bad A-Rod's stupidity was rubbing off on his wife till now.

Bonds Will Start In All-Star Game

Forget the fact that this could be his last season (thus making him deserve a start on merit alone), Bonds stats this season warrant him starting the game.
