W. backs the Longhorns

December 17, 2004 at 09:15 AM

This Cavalcade of Whimsy column is pretty funny every week. I wish I had found it earlier in the year. Of course the reason it's well-written and unbiased is that it's written by someone from CollegeFootballNews.com and not someone actually from Fox Sports. This week he addresses (again) the Cal whining and the George W. Bush conspiracists. These Cal fans are pretty hilarious. Maybe they can enlist their friend Michael Moore to make a...

EA gets sole rights from NFL and NFLPA

December 13, 2004 at 09:48 PM

Well have fun playing your ESPN Pro Football or something game next year, because it won't feature and NFL logos or teams and there won't be any players from the NFLPA in it. Electronic Arts has signed an exclusive deal with them for the next five years. QB #5 of the Philadelphia Birds drops back and throws a touchdown the WR #81. Sound fun? I didn't think so. Game, set, and match to EA Sports.... Continue reading

The Heisman Trophy is a joke

December 09, 2004 at 07:26 AM

The fact that Cedric Benson is not one of the five finalists for the Heisman Trophy is just astounding. There are several worthy candidates this year, so whether or not he deserves to win is up to debate. His season as well as career statistics, as well as his impact on the number four team in the country make him easily a top candidate for Most Outstanding Player, which the Heisman claims to be awarded...

Great take on the Cal Rose Bowl whining

December 07, 2004 at 01:30 PM

These aren't my words, but it's the best thing I've read on the whole Cal deserves to go to the Rose Bowl and Texas doesn't topic. From SynTex on Hornfans (via D-smoo on Orangebloods): The Pac 10 commish, the Cal coach, and many others are harping on some of the voting patterns that may have tainted the BCS. Let's talk about it. Let me take item by item some of the problems that have been... Continue reading

Texas is going to the Rose Bowl!!!

December 05, 2004 at 05:21 PM

Texas has passed Cal in the BCS Standings and are headed to the Rose Bowl! Woohoo! It sucks for Cal that they're not going and a crappy team like Pitt is, but I'm about to go nuts with all these morons claiming this is some sort of travesty or conspiracy. Both teams deserve to go, the difference between Texas and Cal is negligible. Both teams won 10 and lost 1. Cal lost to the number... Continue reading

Barry Bonds is a cheater

December 03, 2004 at 10:53 AM

Update: I found this hilarious. Despite not mentioning steroids anywhere in this article, these ads popped up. Someone selling legal steroids must have bought the keywords for Barry Bonds.... Continue reading

Jason Giambi admits to injecting steroids

December 02, 2004 at 08:25 AM

From the San Francisco Chronicle: Jason Giambi admitted to a federal grand jury he took steroids and human growth hormone in 2003, according to transcripts of (grand jury) testimony... And... ...the former American League MVP told the grand jury investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative steroids case he used steroids obtained from Greg Anderson, the personal trainer for San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds. They need to do something about this before Bonds breaks Hank... Continue reading

Nebraska coach calls OU fans hillbillies

November 15, 2004 at 03:48 PM

Nebraska coach Bill Callahan called a group of Sooner fans hillbillies after their game last Saturday. Okay, technically Callahan called them [expletive] hillbillies, which is just so much better. Oklahoma lets what are essentially their rowdiest bunch of morons right on the field and then gives them loud guns. Genius. It sounds like they were right up in the middle of the Cornhusker warm-ups and one of the NU players "accidentally" collided with one... Continue reading

Astros versus Cardinals

October 13, 2004 at 03:31 PM

The National League Championshop Series starts tonight, but you might not know that if you're just following the national sports media. Monday night's Astros/Braves game was preceded by a brutal half hour pregame show where all they talked about was the Yankees versus Red Sox series. Hell, even here in Dallas Fox is showing that game instead of Game 1 of the Astros series. We're in Texas, show the damn Astros for Pete's sake!... Continue reading

Ken Caminiti: 1963 - 2004

October 11, 2004 at 08:25 AM

Ken Caminiti died yesterday at the age of 41. The cause of death is apparently a heart attack, most likely caused either directly on indirectly by his years of drug abuse. He was in court just last week for violating his probation by testing positive for cocaine. Unfortunately for Caminiti, his good Major League career will likely be overshadowed by his untimely death and his admission that he used steroids during his career, including... Continue reading

Big week in sports

October 04, 2004 at 09:47 AM

It's going to either be a really long or really fast week. The Astros capped off an amazing comeback with another win yesterday and are headed to the playoffs as the wild-card winner. Unfortunately, they'll be facing my other favorite team the Atlanta Braves. Again. The Braves beat Houston in the first round in 1997, 1999, and 2001. It'll be tough, I want both teams to win. At least I hope Lance has a... Continue reading
