After a couple blow-ups with point guard Deron Williams, Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan has resigned after 23 years as coach, almost all regarded as one of the best in the NBA. If there was any doubt the NBA is a players league, let there be no more.
Iron Mike Tyson, who I can remember fighting most of the time at 218, such a fan of his I was, has dropped 140 lbs in six months from a high of - get this - 350. Champ has slimmed down!
Frank Piliere at Fanhouse offers up his list of the Top 100 baseball prospects. Yankees fans rejoice, you've got 4 players rated in the top 44. Not bad for the allegedly bankrupt system some would have you believe. Maybe one of the prospects nets the quite possibly available Francisco Liriano?
The NFL walked away from the negotiating table when players looked to get 50% of all revenues. Yep, it is getting ugly, and fast.
If you don't think Pittsburgh Penguin Matt Cooke is an absolute disgrace to sports in general, and hockey in particular, then you must not have seen more than two of the horrible hits he delivers in this montage of dirty hits. Maybe Sidney Crosby's lingering concussion symptoms that he won't rule out may end his season is the hockey gods exacting revenge for a league that has suspended this piece of garbage for all of ten games over his entire career?
Full disclosure: I wouldn't exactly call myself a dog lover. Never owned one. Don't hate them, just not emotionally attached to them. But it strikes me as a bit much that Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle would say there are times he hoped Michael Vick would get hurt while watching Philadelphia Eagles games because for "everything [Vick's] done to these dogs, something bad needs to happen." Suppose millions upon millions lost and a couple years in the Crowbar Motel don't qualify as "bad" in Buehrle's world.
The Nashville Predators traded for Mike Fisher, who of course is married to Carrie Underwood. Headline in the Tennessean? "Predators acquire Mike Fisher, Carrie Underwood's husband." Guess being a solid, solid player wasn't enough.
Anti-joke? I beg to differ.
