Bonds is suing fellow players now? This could open up a whole can of worms. Sportswriters and announcers will be getting slapped with suits right and left for criticizing athletes. Players will be sued for bench jockeying. Bonds is going to ruffle a lot of feathers with this one, because everyone knows that thereâ€™s no suing in baseball.
One of the great things about sports is that attorneys can't play them and don't determine the outcome. Sure, they negotiate playersâ€™ contracts and are behind the scenes, but thatâ€™s their role and itâ€™s very limited. Now, lawyers will be suing other athletes... Read More
One day after Michael Vick was offered a plea agreement that would send him to jail for approximately one year, now he has a civil suit on his hands. This sounds ridiculous and probably doesnâ€™t have any merit. When I first read it, I thought it might be a prank.
Vick has been accused of a lot of different things, but up until now, no one has questioned his allegiance to the United States. This suit appears to be a case of someone piling on. Iâ€™d like to get a little more background on this inmate to determine if this suit has any validity at all. I doubt it does.
Here is the story as it... Read More
Unless he experiences a complete and total meltdown, Tiger Woods is on course to become the greatest golfer in the history of the sport within the next five years. After that, itâ€™s likely he will set a record for winning major tournaments that will put him in the stratosphere of PGA history.
One of the great things about Tiger is that heâ€™s a great role model, a solid citizen and a family man. People have searched long and hard to find chinks in the manâ€™s armor, but they donâ€™t exist. He lives to play golf and has dominated the sport since the day he turned pro.
Some fellow pro golfers... Read More
Bobby Jenks exited the White Sox clubhouse almost as fast as he's been setting down batters over the last few weeks. The Chicago closer retired the side in the ninth last night in the White Sox 5-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners, his 33rd save in 38 chances. He's set down 38 straight batters, tying David Wells' American League record set in 1998 with the New York Yankees.
It's the fourth-longest streak in major league history.
"That's unbelievable," said White Sox starter Javier Vazquez. "That's tough to do, especially in (that) situation."
Jenks has been providing game-ending shutdowns... Read More
Like many people in this country, I grew up with baseball. The earliest memories I have about the game involve playing it -- my first mitt, bound in rubber bands and stored under my bed to work it in; trying to catch those first thrown baseballs and dropping at least 20 before one miraculously fell into my glove; my first World Series (1968 â€“ Detroit beat St. Louis), watching Bob Gibson scowl as he struck out 18 Tigers reminded me of our fourth grade Physical Education teacher, Mr. Cannon, who believed in jumping jacks and medicine balls and couldnâ€™t tolerate â€œmouthy punksâ€ like myself....

After fighting leukemia since 2004, Bill Walsh, former San Francisco 49ers General Manager and Stanford coach, passed away today at 75 years of age. Bill Walsh brought the 49ers to three Super Bowl victories, making the 49ers the â€œteam of the 80's.â€
Bill Walsh changed the offensive game of football and was even nicknamed the "genius"â€”a title he never denied. According to John Madden, the nickname was well deserved. Bill Walsh was able to bring the offensive game to a new level -- perfecting the passing game. At a time when coaches would run the ball at and eventually pass, Walsh would pass... Read More
