Favre is great and all, but the Packers seem to just be waiting for him to retire and are in perennial rebuilding mode until he does. Was hoping they would trade him to the Lions so he could set the TD and INT record in the same year. Perfect place for him to do it too. Detroit is the king of bad records. Even the Cleveland Browns and their fans that bring dog supplies to the games for their Dawg Pound think the Lions are a joke.
Then it comes to the playoffs and they get bounced in the first round. This was the first time a #1 seed has lost to a #8 seed (lowest playoff seed) in NBA history. The Golden State Warriors owned the MAvs all season long and only losrt to the MAvs once.
Even so...Dirk wins the award for his regular season and the playoffs make no difference. He held off back to back winner Steve Nash from winning his 3rd straight league MVP, and you could argue that he deserved to win it again.
If Dirk doesn't learn how to win in the playoffs he will be selling Portable Water Filters to make ends meet...lol

Normally I would have made quite a few trades by now, but I've only made one at this point. I traded Lee, Jason Hirsch, and Andy LaRoche for Hideki Matsui, Ben Sheets, and Torres (Pirates closer). Seems to be working out OK. Sheets had a nice game today. We paid to get in the league so we win some cash and a house marker, or trophy or something if we take the league.
Here is my current squad:
Posada, Jorge C NYY
Pujols, Albert 1B STL
Roberts, Brian 2B BAL
Lugo, Julio SS BOS
Hardy, J.J. SS MIL
Holliday, Matt LF COL
Matsui, Hideki LF NYY
Suzuki, Ichiro RF SEA
Blalock, Hank 3B TEX
Hafner, Travis DH CLE
Cuddyer, Michael RF MIN
Ibanez, Raul LF SEA
Thomas, Frank DH TOR
Arroyo, Bronson SP CIN
Harang, Aaron SP CIN
Sabathia, C.C. SP CLE
Buehrle, Mark SP CHW
Lilly, Ted SP CHC
Owings, Micah SP ARI
Sheets, Ben SP MIL
Zito, Barry SP SF
Jenks, Bobby RP CHW
Okajima, Hideki RP BOS
Torres, Salomon RP PIT
Wheeler, Dan RP HOU
This guy is on the DL which is why I have that Boston relief pitcher until i find someone else.
Tracy, Chad 3B ARI
People are burning up their network cables to trade me for the guy right now, and I guess i should make the move if someone wants to give me a stud for him. This can't hold up. I may swindle someone out of a #1 pitcher with this guy somehow. I can live with out his production, but i will be very happy to stockpile pitching for the 2nd half I can trade for some stud bats.
HArdy is doing this (through 164 ABs on May 16):
53 hits, 13 HRs, 39 RBIs, 28 Runs, .371 OBP, .629 SLG, and a .333 average
Look out A-Rod. This guy is the true Fantasy MVP so far...lol

This wasn't the first time int he series that the Spurs have gotten dirty. Bruce Bowen has been playing like he is Ron Artest by kicking Nash in the groin in front of millions. What happened to him? Nothing. The Suns, and specifically Amre have been whining about the dirty play though so I guess they get the brunt of the suspensions.
The Spurs have always been, and even more so now, are big floppers. Manu is such a punk. Worst flopper in the league. Tim Duncan looks quiet, but he is a real whiner too.
The Spurs should be ready to lose the series and spending time making use of some truck accessories with their toys now instead of leading this series. Just another reason why I am so sick of the NBA.

So you figure it is Game 5 and they are back in Detroit they will just want to get this one over. Apparently not. They let the Bulls shoot 72% in the first half. 72%! That is unheard of. They quickly get down 20+ points and decide they will try and play for a little while, but the pesky Bulls shut that door quickly. Instead of a 4 game series they now have to go at least 6 games. The way they are playing they may be looking for a vacation package soon.

What about Matt Millen, the Detorit Lions GM? He has won less games in his tenure than the Houston Texans. The Houston Texans are an expansion team established in 2002. Yet, the Fords (who are running everything into the ground lately) decided to give him a 5 year extension just 2 years ago. He has drafted 4 Wide Receivers in the last 5 years in the first round. A QB that like to play the piano and throw 2 yard passes on 3rd and 8. He has a record of 24-72, which is by far the worst in the league over that time.
Then people are whining about Roger Clemens raping the Yankees. Hey, at least this guy is effective and helps a team win. Pay the man. He's a Hall of Famer already and still getting fools out. Give him some Studio RTA Furniture and keep it coming. This guy has more trophies to display than Britney has pock marks.

Look at various articles on the site about broadband related news and information to get a better idea of what you are looking for. Then use their tools to compare broadband prices and services available to you in your area to get the best solution for your needs.
And what the hell is this?
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the testing program.
Confidential? It's like my brother finds out a I smoked weed before and he is going to tell our mommy. Same damn thing happened at the draft with this stuff, but that wasn't even testing. These guys were supposed to have confidential conversations where they were asked if they ever used Marijuana. CONFIDENTIAL. Then an hour later some tool is off int he media tarnishing a guys' name and saying that he is a bad character guy. I am beginning to wonder if these reporters sleep in the jock strap laundry bin to get these stories, or NFL officials are drinking on the job all day with these loose lips.
I can remember when I was in high school just a dozen years ago that we had some of the better uniforms in the area. I really think we were quite a ways ahead of the times with the look and feel of our uniforms. While almost everyone we played had those ugly scratchy pants, we looked like Notre Dame in our green and gold. Our pants were comfortable and made of breathable materials. Our jerseys were top of the line for the time, but not even close to what is available at this time.
What is available now in football jerseys & pants is simply remarkable. As the article suggests, there have been many advancements in not only the look of these uniforms, but in the feel, and functionality of the newest jerseys. Customization is available to give teams a unique look, and to give players at different positions advantages by getting customized jerseys in that regard such as lineman jerseys which hug the body. This is a big deal when playing the line I know from experience. The less those pesky LBs and defensive lineman can grab onto the better. No matter what the goal of the buyer, they can get reasonable prices for uniforms and get much higher quality than they ever could before. The article gives a great breakdown on what is available and what the advantages of different customization methods work for the best look.
