  1. Why can't A-Roid accept his punishment like a man?

    Alex Rodriguez doesn't get it.

    On Monday, his teammate, Francisco Cervelli, was, along with Rodriguez, suspended for using performance enhancing drugs (PED's). Cervelli, on the disabled list since late April, accepted his penalty without fuss or drama. The next time the Yankees see him, barring the playoffs, would be at Spring Training in Tampa next February.

    Other players, including the Mets' Jordany Valdespin, Detroit's Jhonny Peralta, & Texas' Nelson Cruz, also ...

  2. Vince McMahon will never learn, and that hurts us all

    How do I know you're not sick?/You could be some deranged lunatic!
    ---Will Smith, aka the Fresh Prince, 1987.

    The above line best describes WWE Chairman/CEO Vince McMahon, who will turn 68 next month. Over the last 11 years, McMahon has made a number of questionable decisions that under different circumstances would've torpedoed his corporate empire, but yet, it marches on, ever so slowly.

    For the 2nd time in ...

  3. In the end, it's business as usual

    It's funny how one night changes everything.

    The New York Yankees had been swept in 4 games by the moribound Mets, who aren't languishing in last place because Miami is just more putrid than they are. Overall, the Mets had won 5 in a row, ending Atlanta's winning streak on Sunday prior to Subway Series '13, and the Yanks, after losing to Tampa Bay, also on Sunday, now were on a 5 game skid.

    On Friday, the Yanks got infielders Kevin Youkilis & Mark Teixiera back ...

  4. Stupidity runs rampant in the WWE!

    In high school, one of my teachers often complained that "stupidity runs rampant" when the class wasn't exactly swift on the uptake on a particular day. Sad to say, that same malaise of stupidity has a permanent home in the WWE.

    The company's much-maligned creative team underwent an overhaul recently, with long-time Raw head writer Brian Gewirtz apparently having been deep-sixed (don't know all the details), among other things, but Vince McMahon's refusal to train his writers ...

  5. The matchup the NBA wanted---for the wrong reasons

    There's a reason I don't watch much basketball anymore. I'm more of a baseball/football guy, though I'll flip on golf if there's not much else holding my attention.

    In the last several years, the NBA has become more about politics, pecking orders, and Madison Avenue, not specifically in that order. The Association is beholden to its corporate partners, and that doesn't stop with ABC/ESPN (Disney) & TNT (Time-Warner). Whether you want to believe it or not, on a legitimately level ...
