  1. Manny and the Enablers

    Just when you thought Major League Baseball was showing some backbone and some teeth by suspending a star athlete the caliber of Manny Ramirez for 50 games because he used performance enhancing drugs, they turn around and, because of a provision in the collective bargaining agreement with the Players' Association, send Manny off to the minors on a "rehabilitation assignment", as if he had been injured, not suspended. What a joke! And it's on us!

    No matter where Ramirez has ...

  2. It may be time to reschedule the WBC

    The post-WBC injury bug struck again earlier this week, as two more players who took part in the March tournament went on the disabled list.

    Boston pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka is back on the DL for the 2nd time this season. As was the case in April, "Dice-K" is suffering from shoulder issues related to his MVP performance for his native Japan in the WBC. The Red Sox, however, aren't sweating his absence this time, as John Smoltz, acquired from Atlanta in the off-season, is ...

    Tommy Dreamer, the last "ECW Original" on the current WWE roster, won the ECW championship Sunday at Extreme Rules. Now, not surprisingly, there are rumors that Dreamer (real name: Tom Loughlin, not to be confused with the "Billy Jack" actor of the same name) has signed a new deal with WWE, which set the wheels in motion. I had envisioned Dreamer winning, then retiring that same night, like Trish Stratus did at Unforgiven '06. That may still happen, depending on what unfolds ...

  5. Reality gets the last laugh

    PT Barnum once said that "a sucker is born every minute". Apparently, not enough of them were watching Monday Night Raw from Los Angeles on Memorial Day.

    Determined to embarass the NBA at all costs, WWE owner Vince McMahon hired actors to impersonate NBA commissioner David Stern, Lakers owner Jerry Buss, and movie legend/Lakers superfan Jack Nicholson, and local ring announcer Troy Stone was recruited to masquerade as Denver Nuggets owner E. (for Enos) Stanley Kroenke. ...
