I've never been able to articulate it as well as this, but I've always been four-square against the designated hitter. As this article points out, it makes about as much sense as a designated free-throw shooter.
Spurs 1, Stern 0
Despite the fact that the NBA commissioner levied a fine of a quarter mil on the San Antonio Spurs yesterday (Today?) for failing to play all their starters and sending them home instead of to Miami, the Spurs got the last laugh by taking Miami down the wire with their reserves. There's an excellent article … Continue reading Spurs 1, Stern 0
He talks a good game.
I say I'm going to talk about sports, then nothing. Sorry. I'll get a bunch out here in one post.Randy Johnson is getting himself back into the groove. So it would seem anyway. He's been pulling his ERA down since his first abysmal start. Though he's without a win yet, he's been going 6 or … Continue reading He talks a good game.
I've never been a big fan of Michael Jordan. I know he was a talented player and all that, but I didn't really like the Bulls, they stopped the Sonics the last time the Sonics made it to the NBA Finals and I get the impression that he's a lot more ruthless than his carefully … Continue reading Jordan, bleh.

NCAA Tournament Day 4

Wichita St. beat Tennessee and UW beat Illinois so now only UConn is left of my teams in the DC regional and they're my Final … Continue reading NCAA Tournament Day 4
NCAA Tournament Day 3
Well, Day 2 was pretty bad. Both NC State and Arizona won, and both were picks I had reversed once I decided to go exclusively with the strength ratings. Worse, however, was the fact that Kansas and Iowa both bit the dust in the first round because I had both of them slotted in as … Continue reading NCAA Tournament Day 3
NCAA Tournament Day 2
Well, it wasn't too bad on the first day. Of the 16 games played, my picks had 12 of them correct. The only disappointments really were that I had picked Montana to upset Nevada and GW to beat NC Wilmington before going strictly by the strength rankings. On the other hand, I had also picked … Continue reading NCAA Tournament Day 2
