Another Article on Satellite for MLB

Apparently there is still hope, but not much.

In fact, Dish Network and iN Demand (which, in essence, represent TimeWarner, Comcast, and Cox) have until the end of the month to agree to terms already set forth by DirecTV in its $700 million agreement, including carrying the MLB network, which won’t even hit the airwaves until 2009. If no agreement is reached, DirecTV will be the only source for Extra Innings, leaving thousands of displaced fans without a package they had come to rely on.

Baseball needs more, not less games on TV

Couldn't agree more buddy, and this article really pisses me off if what he is saying is true about only being able to get the MLB package on DirecTV and not on Dish Network anymore, which I have. I planned on getting this package for the first time this year and if I can't it is going to annoy me to no end. I don't want to watch games on my computer. I have too much other stuff I need to be doing on my computer to have it tied up with baseball games. I want it on my TV so I can work while I watch!

The issue of baseball's satellite-TV package grows more complicated by the day, but here's the essence: Consumers not only get the short end of the deal, they get ridiculed by Bud Selig as their cries of protest are swept under the rug.

Of all the commissioner's ludicrous statements over the years, and they are legion, this one has to rank right near the top: Commenting on Major League Baseball's new exclusive deal with DirecTV -- one that shuts out millions of fans who previously enjoyed the "Extra Innings" package on cable -- Selig called the public and media outcry "ridiculous" and added, "I've heard for years we have too much product out there."


Disney World Still King

Disney World is still the biggest draw to Florida from people around the world. With the summer vacations coming up it is time to look into the available Disney World packages for you and the kids. How many places in the World have 52 theme parks? Beaches within a short 40 minute drive?

If that isn't your thing and you want to let the rest of the family head out to the theme parks then you won't be hurting for entertainment. Orlando has more top rated golf courses within a 40 minute drive than anywhere else in Florida, the second largest convention center in the world, and since Disney World is the biggest draw almost every recreation in Orlando is family friendly.

Braves ink Redman to minor-league deal

You remember this former Tiger don't you? He didn't do much here and really hasn't ever done much other than a nice year way back in the 90's I think. He is a guy that can take a back end role I guess, but nothing particularly exciting about him. If he is going to make it anywhere the Braves is probably the place.

Dominic Rhodes signs with Raiders

He got himself a 2 year deal that is said to be $7.5 Million. Rhodes split time with the rookie sensation Joseph Addai last year as the Colts marched on to win the Super Bowl. The Raiders on the other hand have the top pick in the draft. Rhodes isn't really a feature back of any sort so i don't see what the Raiders are going to do with them unless they are just holding the spot for whoever they draft.

Giants Get Running Back Rueben Droughns in Trade

Well....looks like they aren't going to be interested in Tatum Bell. Might as well keep him in Detroit and see what happens.

The Browns got Tim Carter out of the deal, a WR from Auburn, who has drafted in the 2nd round in 2002. In five seasons and 11 starts, Carter has 72 catches for 967 yards and three touchdowns.

Droughns found his success under Mike Shannahan in Denver and put together a nice year his first season in Cleveland. Last season he was limited and only started 12 games. He failed to reach the 1,000 yard plateu last season.

They Giants apparently aren't ready to hand the every down duties to the freak Brandon Jacobs and want to continue a commitee approach after the retirement of Tiki Barber. I don't forsee Droughns fulfulling that role so Jacobs should get his share of the workload.

Calhoun left kicking & screaming

It has been a frustrating, disappointing season for UConn basketball. And it finally caught up with Jim Calhoun midway through the second half of a possibly season-ending 78-65 loss to Syracuse in the first round of the Big East Tournament yesterday at the Garden.

A red-faced Calhoun - his team down 62-48 - was hit with a technical foul when he exploded at official Mike Stevens, who Calhoun felt had missed a foul on his sophomore forward Jeff Adrien going to the basket (Stevens called Adrien for a walk instead). Calhoun kicked the scorer's table in disgust, then spun around and started to jaw with Stevens.

TV cameras focused on the dent Calhoun's kick produced.

This wasn't supposed to happen to this storied program, which is just a year removed from being a No.1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskies weren't supposed to be 17-14, finish 12th in the league and be questionable for an NIT bid. If they miss out on the NIT, it will be the first time in 20 years the Huskies have missed the postseason. read more...

Baggage handlers brought guns, drugs on flight

ORLANDO, Fla. - Two baggage handlers carried a bag containing guns and drugs on a commercial flight from Florida to Puerto Rico, but passengers were in no danger, a Transportation Security Administration spokesman said.

The baggage handlers used their employee uniforms and airport identification cards to enter restricted areas, bypass screeners with the bag and board the commercial Delta flight, according to court documents released Wednesday.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Christopher White said passengers were in no danger but declined to address the security breach. Read more...

New England a magnet for free agents

Why wouldn't they be? The team is legendary and they run it right. Everyone there knows they are part of a team. They know they are there to win a Super Bowl. Even though they finally got knocked off by the Colts this year you really don't think they are going to roll over and die do you? They use the draft and free agency as well as anyone.

It's been two long seasons since the New England Patriots won a Super Bowl championship -- far too long for many of their fans.
But the organization itself has lost none of its championships luster among the NFL's players.
At least that's the word from the free agents the Patriots have courted and signed this offseason.
From linebacker Adalius Thomas to tight end Kyle Brady to wide receiver Wes Welker -- acquired in a trade from Miami earlier this week -- New England's championship possibilities were among the primary reasons they are coming north to play for Bill Belichick and his band of Patriots.
Welker, speaking on a conference call Wednesday morning, said he has always been jealous of New England's success, particularly since much of it came at his former team's expense. The Patriots have won four consecutive AFC East titles, the first two leading to Super Bowl championships. read more...

NFL Looks at Effects of Head Injuries

Mar. 8--Confronted with unhappy and increasingly unhealthy retired players, the NFL is embarking on a study of concussions -- estimated to cost as much as $3 million -- in search of evidence of chronic brain dysfunction.

Dr. Ira Casson, co-chairman of the league's research team on concussions, this week said he hopes to answer the ominous question "of whether or not a career in the NFL results in any kind of chronic brain injury."

To a number of retired players, including several former Colts, that answer is already in.

Merril Hoge was forced to retire from the Chicago Bears after suffering two concussions within the span of 42 days early in the 1994 season. He says he never had a follow-up evaluation after the first one and was back on the practice field five days later.

When Hoge, a running back, suffered a second concussion six weeks later, he says he stopped breathing in the locker room and nearly died.



Endowment mortgages are mortgages where the interest on the principle of the mortgage loan is due. The principle of the loan is covered by a type of insurance known as an endowment
policy. The endowment policy ensures the mortgage holder will be able to pay off the loan when it comes due.

Endowment Express offers a service for the seller so they will be able to find the right buyer for their unique endowment policy. Someone will want to buy it. By selling their endowment policy through such a service, the endowment policy holder may receive up to 35% more for their policy.

NFL players visit heroes in Iraq

The NFL's Director of Community Affairs, David Krichavsky, is accompanying four NFL players -- Atlanta Falcons tight end Alge Crumpler, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shelton Quarles, Kansas City Chiefs guard Will Shields, and New England Patriots tight end Ben Watson -- on a 12-day USO tour to U.S. military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Breakfast at the DFAC found us seated with a spirited soldier from Mississippi who had strong views on his favorite team, the Atlanta Falcons.

"Where's Alge? Where's Alge?" he screamed when he learned that Alge Crumpler was with our group but just hadn't made it to breakfast yet. Without Alge to pepper with questions about catching passes from Michael Vick or the new coaching schemes of Bobby Petrino, the soldier settled for quizzing Shelton Quarles about his Buccaneers' intra-division battles with the Falcons.

Bills trade RB McGahee to Ravens

Whoa...the Ravens didn't waste any time replacing Jamal Lewis it seems. They went from a guy that was sort of washed up to a guy that is plagued with injuries, but has huge potential.

The trade is pending a physical that is likely to take place on Friday. The Ravens will send three draft picks, two in this year's draft and one in 2008, to the Bills in exchange for the versatile tailback.

"This is a runner who can make people miss and has the explosion and speed to take it the distance," said Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome. "He also has the power and size to run inside. He's a viable receiver out of the backfield and is a good pass blocker, not something every back can do. He also plays physical and with toughness, which are things we pride ourselves on here." read more...

Rocker says he didn't have HGH prescription

You remember John Rocker don't you? The racist bastard that made the headlines with inflamatory comments from his backwoods mind. He's in the news this time for another controversey. He has apparently used Human Growth Hormone, but is adamently denying it.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Former major league relief pitcher John Rocker told ESPN Radio on Wednesday he never bought human growth hormone with a prescription.

On Tuesday, reported Rocker showed up on a client list of Applied Pharmacy, a Mobile, Ala., company raided in connection with a nationwide investigation into the illegal sale of steroids.

"I never had a prescription for any HGH," Rocker told ESPN Radio's "The Herd." "If somebody's got a beef to make with me, show me a prescription." read more...

Kobe Bryant Suspended Again

NEW YORK - Kobe Bryant was suspended one game by the NBA on Wednesday for striking a player in the face, his second penalty for that action in a little more than a month.

And if he does it again, he could be looking at a more severe punishment.

"We considered suspending him for multiple games," NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson said on a conference call. "Certainly if this occurs again, most likely there would be multiple games."

The most recent incident came with 58 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of the Lakers' 117-107 double-overtime loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night, when Bryant struck Timberwolves guard Marko Jaric after taking a shot. read more...

Addressing Needs on the Front

Apparently the Lions did actually address a need recently by signing defensive end Dewayne White.

On Friday – just one day into free agency – the Detroit Lions made significant moves, re-shaping the team that has been familiar to fans for the past few seasons.

In a pair of trades, cornerback Dré Bly and defensive end James Hall were sent to the Broncos and Rams, respectively, leaving vacancies at starting right cornerback and starting right end.

Also affecting the defense was the move of Cory Redding from the starting left end position to starting under tackle, meaning that the Lions will have neither starting defensive end they had to begin last season. read more...

Rocket pops in

Not that I dislike Roger Clemens, but I'm getting tired of hearing about how he may or may not play. He will play half the year and still make more than about 99% of the players int he league. I'm not sure i am really on board with the tactics he has taken the last couple of years. I forsee a new "Roger Clemens" rule being adopted by the leauge that doesn't allow players to participate int he playoffs if they were not playing all year for soemthing other than a suspension or injury.

TAMPA - Roger Clemens made an appearance at his old spring training home last night, but the Rocket seems no closer to making a decision on his baseball future than he has been all winter.

Clemens said it "still holds true" that he likely won't decide until May whether to pitch in 2007, though his agents, Alan and Randy Hendricks, are keeping him up to date on all teams' interest in his services.

"My position has not changed, whatsoever," said Clemens, who will consider the Yankees, Red Sox and Astros if he decides to return this season. read more...

Gary Matthews Jr.

The Angels could attempt to suspend Gary Matthews Jr. or void his five-year, $50 million contract if the outfielder doesn't come clean on his alleged purchase of HGH, a major league source told the New York Daily News.

Good luck with that. It's hard to blame Matthews for not talking, regardless of what he may or may not have done. Even Jason Giambi never truly admitted using steroids. If the Angels try disciplining Matthews for allegedly receiving HGH at a time when it wasn't even on MLB's banned substances list, they're going to face a grievance and almost certainly lose it. Matthews owners should be more worried about what all of this pressure is going to do to his game mentally than the rumors of a suspension from either MLB or the Angels. read more...

Hank Blalock is a fantasy Gem this year

Hank Blalock was once ranked in the top 20 I believe in fantasy baseball and seems to have fallen off the map. The guy in many cases I've seen hasn't even been ranked in the Top 20 of 3rd basemen this year. The guy is under 25 years old and has monster potential. Hitting behind Michael Young who is a batting average champ contender every year and a great all around hitter this guy could be incredible this year and a great, great value for you in the draft. More seasoned players may think of him as a decent option still, but many have just given up on the guy. I'm here to tell you that I think he can be a monster steal in the draft this year.

With 3rd base being very strong i would see if I could get Blalock later on and stack my pitching staff and other fielding positions until you think you can snag Hank.

Cabrera looks to shake his walks on the wild side

Cabrera has all the talent in the world, but he is so damn wild. This guy can go and strike out 12 and allow no runs, while the next game he pitches he will walk 7 and get shelled. This article tries to claim that he is trying to control himself a bit more, but I have my doubts the guy can put it all together.

Russian Brides

So you can't get yourself a woman on your own. So you really want a loyal wife, but you don't have what it takes to get one yourself. It is time for you to look into russian brides.

Most Russian brides are looking for a life partner on this site. Russian and Ukrainian brides are different from brides of other countries because marriage is normally their main priority from early age. Even young Russian women strive to create a family first and only afterwards they think about building a career, not visa versa. Dating for most of these women implies marriage and family. Therefore, a relationship with a Russian bride (AKA “mail order brides”) is likely to be different from any affair you have had before. The divorce rate in marriages with Russian women tends to be much lower than with marriages in America, UK and Australia.

Fantasy Baseball Bust of the Year

My fantasy baseball bust of the year is going to be Jose Reyes. I like the kid and he has great talent, but all rankings seem to have this guy sitting in the Top 3. I don't get it. Short stop is stacked this year and anyone that has to use their pick ont his kid in the top 5 is going to cost themselves IMO. I don't see him having a better year than last year. In fact I see him struggling quite a bit and I see me getting him for shit 2 months into the season from whoever drafted him.

2nd Base is pretty week in fantasy baseball this year

There is nobody. Other than Chase Utley you haven't much to choose from. Soriano now only qualifies int he outfield so you have to really consider ignoring 2B in the draft n my opinion. If you can snag Utley you are one lucky SOB, but the postion is likely going to be best suited for finding your man in the free agent pool this year I think.

Other than 2nd base it seems like the reast of the positions are stacked. Short stop in particular looks better than it has for years. Pitching has a lot of rookie sensations from last year, but I consider pitching a crap shoot unless you have Santana or Carpenter.

Martinez throws for first time since surgery

Pedro is a guy that I really like. HE may be an a-hole many times, but I think he is one of the most underrated pitchers in this era. He doesn't seem to get the press he once did which baffles me. Even being in New York he still isn't always mentioned with the guys as being the legend he is. This guy has some of the best stats of wany pitcher in the last 20 years and no one seems to mention him in casual discussions as one of the greatest ever. It baffles me. People recognize he is great when he is brought up, but he just doesn't seem to get the credit he deserves in my mind.

Sammy Sosa

Got himself a home run in spring training finally I noticed. I don't like the guy. I don't like his act of playing the guy who doesn't understand English when he is in trouble. He had a corked bat, he has obviously taken steroids, and he is washed up. I do not want to see him in the league anymore.

Falcons sign WR Joe Horn

That Falcons team has the worst receivers I've ever seen. Last year they had no players of any fantasy value catching the ball. At least Horn has something left in the tank, but I don't see this as being that big a deal. The Saints had a huge boost last year from a guy that came out of nowhere. Mawrques Colston was one of the last 10 picks int he draft and just destroyed the league. Though of as a tight End he just dominated and really was the best rookie in the league even though Reggie Bush was the one on the team getting all the attention.

I've always like Joe Horn so I hope he can find a way to help that team, but Vick is still not a great QB and I will say that forever. The option doesn't work int he NFL.

Woods flexes his muscle in Washington

Women's basketball is garbage

I hate it so much. I'm so sick of having to hear about it because the Detroit Shock keeps winning titles. I feel so strongly that women's basketball sucks that it pisses me off that they are adding to the number of Championship Drive over at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Women's basketball is not a real sport. It sucks.

Jamal Lewis agrees to one-year deal with the Browns

This guy has been killing fantasy teams for about 3 years now. After his 2000 yard season he got to spend some time in jail and has never been the same since. Now in Cleveland, where the Ravens team was originally from ironically, he will replace Droughns who was a so-so running back and now is out of a job.

Cleveland got hosed when the Browns left and becamse the Ravens. Only took a short while and the Ravens picked up a Super Bowl win while Browns fans got rewarded with an expansion team with the same name they had before.

Ready for March Madness?

This is one of the strangest phenomenons in sports, and really garners as much attention in office pools as the Super Bowl does. Every idiot with an Excel spreadsheet program has made a bracket to pick the teams they have never seen and try to win the office pool. I will be one of them as I haven't watched dick for college hoops this year. I never do rally. Don't have time. The tournament is how I see teams in the league. Other than that I don't have the time to follow 90 sports year round. College hoops tends to be one that falls through the cracks all year.

Billups gets more calls than Wade?

I was suprised to see this list and to tell you the truth I'm too lazy to confirm it by averaging this up myself. Wade is busted right now anyways so it doesn't mean much. When he is in the playoffs he gets more calls than paternity suit lawyers looking to be the father of Anna Nicole's kid.

James Scores Season-High 41, Cavs Top Pistons 101-97 In OT

Lebron is on my fantasy team so I guess it is a good headline for me if I wasn't a Pistons fan. The Pistons look like they are bored again it appears and hopefully blowing some of these games against playoff teams this past week or so has lit a fire under their asses. Losint to Miami with out Wade and the Cavs who are going to meet us int he playoffs isn't the way to tell the league you have any shot at challenging the Mavs this year. The Mavs will get bounced by the Spurs

Detroit Pistons Guard Lindesy Hunter Suspended 10 Games for Banned Substance

Hunter tested positive for phentermine on Wednesday, a shocking revelation to the popular Pistons player.

“It was a diet pill — we've all taken stuff and nothing ever happens”, said Hunter.

Now this kind of thing hit the Lions last year as well. Sean Rogers, by far the teams best player, was hit with a 4 game suspension for using a diet pill. I'm all for keeping steroids and illegal drugs out of the leagues, but these diet pill things are ridiculous.

RB Brown scheduled to visit Lions

So we trade Dre Bly, an All-pro corner to get Tatum Bell, Ducket has visited, and now Chris Brown is going to come in. I've heard rumors about the Giants being interested in Tatum Bell, so we may be trying to make something happen by getting another back. If you remember Kevin Jones has an injury that may keep him out most of the year and even when he does come back there is a chance that he is going to be limited and never the same. I'm not a KJ fan all that much anyways and Bell is probably a better long-term solution for this franchise anyways with MArtz running the offense.

I don't talk much about the Lions because they piss me off. They are the worst franchise in sports.

ALLEN PARK -- Running back Chris Brown, a free agent who played his first four seasons for the Tennessee Titans, was scheduled to visit the Detroit Lions after ending a trip to the Buffalo Bills Wednesday.

Brown, 25, played only five games in 2006 because of an injury. He rushed for a career-high 1,067 yards in 2004 and added 851 in '05.

The Lions acquired Tatum Bell in a trade with Denver last week but are hoping to add depth at tailback. source

Tigers Flash Potential for Greatness

For more than a decade, the Atlanta Braves were the team that other teams wanted to be. They were a contender year after year. From 1991 through 2005, the Braves won 14 National League East titles in 15 seasons. They were the type of team the Detroit Tigers hope to be over the next few years. There's no secret to doing it, Braves manager Bobby Cox said Wednesday prior to a 4-4, 11-inning tie with Detroit in a game played before a Marchant Stadium crowd of 7,473. read more...

I love Dombrowski. The guy just "gets it" as a GM in the MLB. He drafts pitching, pitching, and more pitching. He signs extra closers every year, or guys that have closer experience.

Now that the Tigers are actual contenders he has 2 big assets to intrigue other teams that are out of it at the trade deadline, or those that need someone to close the door on opponents. I'm a big believer that closers are gold on the trading table. Every year teams are possibly that guy away from making the playoffs. Closers, and former closers have great value to teams. Look at what DD got from Philly when they offed Ugeth Urbina. We got our #2 hitter in Placido Polanco who is one of the best contact hitters in the league and really the driving force in our line up. As Placido goes, the offense goes. The guy has played excellent 2nd base since he came here and has just been a great team guy.

Back to pitching though. Almost our entire rotation is home grown, or will be. Bonderman, Robertson, Andrew Miller (future freak), etc. etc. Dombrowski went out and got the veteran Kenny Rogers that we have been missing to help these young guys learn the game better. On top of that he did one of the best moves you can possibly do when he got Pudge to sign here. A Hall of Fame catcher that knows how to call a game and has passion.

The article has some Bobby Cox quotes in it is why I linked it. Cox is one of my favorite managers and I have always had a lot of respect for the way Atlanta is run.

Key West or Bust

Leigh is a girl gamer? Awesome. Glad to see a lady gamer around. They are more common than they used to be, but still too few of them. She has a dear of moving to Key West or Bust. Even if it takes her until she is 80 she is going to move there. I know the feeling. I live in Michigan and it ugly right now in the winter. I grew up wanting to move to Cali and just never made it out of here because my family depends on me too much.

I can identify a lot with this blog actually the more I read it. I've had many of the same experiences and it is interesting to see someone write about things that are so familiar to me, and not just the gaming aspect. Her experience with MMORPGs made me laugh as I have some of those experiences with Socom Clans and other shooters I play online.

I drink way too much coke and other pops and my teeth are starting to get discolored.

The Sanctuary and The New Santuary

Anthrax has their own blog. No, not the band, but the disease that gained prominance after the 9/11 terrorist attack with stories int he news about it being spread through the mail to unsuspecting Americans. The blog called The Sanctuary is written by Anthraxxxx about any and all randomness he thinks of on a given day. He doesn't claim to be on top of the music scene in his post about an MTV video, but I'm not real up to date either so it isn't like I'm a head of him for popular

He has gotten himself his own hosted domain as well and calls it The New Sanctuary. This blog is starting to come into its own and looks great so far. Check out some of his categories such as Anime and Manga and Humor to get a better look into the mind of Anthraxxxx.

Black soy beans help weight loss?

Did you know that Black soy beans help weight loss? I didn't. I was just reading a bit about it on and it was kind of interesting. It states that it helps to lower cholesterol, they help lower your blood pressure and are a great way to help prevent the onset of diabetes. The beans are high in protein and can easily be added to any current diet. Check out that and many other treatments at I guess I should go get some of these "magic" beans and clean up my act :P.

Bonderman adding the circle change to his arsenal?

I was browsing around yesterday and saw a couple mentions that Verlander was showing him how to grip and throw a circle change yesterday. Bondo has a great slider and a mid 90s fastball that he works with and a bit of a change up that he hasn't really gotten down yet. IT will be interesting to see how he does with this circle change. Anything that makes him harder to hit is great with me. He proved he's a big game pitcher in the playoffs and we are all hoping that this is truly his breakout year. The dude is only 24 years old, but has been in the league since that record loss season of 119 so he still has quite a birght future a head we hope.
