OK, nothing about Formula 1 in 3 pages? What's with you lot?

2007 Canadian Grand Prix. Discuss!

Hamilton won! Yay for him, long time coming. Kubica's a lucky lucky boy after his monster crash at about 170 mph. 5-10 years ago and he'd have been dead for sure. And if a CART or IRL car did EXACTLY the same thing these days, there is a possibility there would have been more serious injuries, most likely to the head and feet / legs. As it happens, he only had concussion and a sprained ankle! Kudos to F1's incredible safety standards, though they could use tightening up towards the front of the monocoque.

I need my monocoque tightened up too.

Looks like a Spurs sweep. The NBA really needs to revamp the playoff format. There are at least 4 teams in the west capable of being more competitive than the Cavs. Lebron is the shit but the team around him? Meh.

Slightly interesting:

Taking into consideration the 4 major sports in the U.S., hockey, baseball, basketball and football, there are only 2 days a year when they are all inactive.

It happens to be today and 2 days ago. The day before and the day after the baseball all-star game.

Went to the Scottish games in Oakland today. The boyo and I played some shinty and amazingly enough, my little 11 year old went out and threw the caber in front of the whole crowd. Not full sized of course, but it was bigger then he was. He scored a a perfect 12 and an 11. Great fun and a new sport for the boy if he can just gain about 200 lbs.....

Rory Sabbatini! You got owned........TWICE!!!
Don't be such a little bitch!

Earlier this season, Sa-bitch-tini had said Tiger Woods was beatable as ever

Quote:
Sabbatini has fan kicked off course

After Sabbatini made a double bogey and was walking away from the ninth green, retired firefighter and paramedic Steve Banky casually said to him, ``Hey, Rory. Still think Tiger's beatable?''

Sabbatini wheeled and pointed to Banky, telling a police officer that he wanted Banky removed from the course. He was escorted to the course's front entrance by two officers.

``We're out here to do our job - let us do our job,'' Sabbatini said later. ``Have a little bit of decorum, a little bit of class out there. I guess a few too many beers were talking.''

Sabbatini shot a 74, Woods had a 65 to overcome a one-shot deficit to start the day and win by eight strokes.

It was at the Wachovia tournament earlier this year that the fiery Sabbatini said he wanted Woods in the final group. Woods then beat him by five shots in the final round to win the tournament. Four days later, Sabbatini said Woods looked ``beatable as ever.'' Woods countered that he had already won three times this year, matching Sabbatini's career total.

While not a Notre Dame fan (although I've been to Southbend to watch them play Stanford), I've been curious to see what Quinn may do for the Browns. Not bad yesterday; 13 of 20 (which is a bit misleading) for 155 yards and two TDs in the final 9:20

Now let's see what he can do against first and second team defenses (and a team that isn't the Lions).

He gets no respect but...

Quote:
The United States couldn't shake Canada with offense alone. Turning up the defense sure did the trick.

The Americans held the Canadians to just two field goals in a dominant second quarter, pulling away for a 113-63 victory Saturday to remain unbeaten in the FIBA Americas tournament.

Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points, equaling the second-best U.S. total in an Olympic qualifying game, and Michael Redd added 19, including five 3-pointers. But the United States didn't pull away until it tightened its defense after a competitive first quarter.

"I said before the game we had to be ready because the U.S. had been dominating teams in the first quarter," Canada coach Leo Rautins said. "We did a good job of being close and executing, and then they killed us in the second quarter."

Kobe Bryant had 15 points, Amare Stoudemire 12 and LeBron James 10 points, eight rebounds and four assists for the Americans, who reached 100 points less than 2½ minutes into the fourth quarter and are averaging 116 in the tournament - not far off the record 121.2 the Dream Team put up in 1992.

At least they got something positive amongst all the bombs the Russians have been dropping on them, but the Georgians win small

Walkoff HR gives Georgia second straight LLWS title

Unbelievably, I really got into the whole internqational flair of the little league this year and chose Warner Robbins (Georgia) out of the gate to take it all. Unfortunately, I didn't bet on it

Quote:
Dalton Carriker couldn't feel his legs as he rounded the bases.

His home run in the bottom of the eighth had just given Warner Robins, Ga., a thrilling 3-2 victory over Tokyo to win the Little League World Series title.

"I felt like I was flying, like Peter Pan," Carriker said. "I didn't know what I was doing."

Adrenaline took over from there, said the 12-year-old slugger with braces.

His dramatic home run over the right-field wall off a 2-1 pitch from Japan's Junsho Kiuchi gave the United States three straight Little League championships.

"USA! USA!" cried the Georgia-partisan crowd as dozens of fans waved American flags. Columbus, Ga., won the crown last year, and Ewa Beach, Hawaii, in 2005.

"They're not greedy kids," relieved manager Mickey Lay said. "They just enjoy playing the game. That's something that we miss sometimes."

They sure had fun after Carriker's homer. The jubilant players from Warner Robins hugged him as he reached the plate. Lay lost his hat after joining his team in celebration following a tense game marked by excellent pitching.

Georgia reliever Kendall Scott struck out 10 and allowed one hit over five-plus innings to quiet Japan's bats after Georgia fell behind 2-0 early.

Scott, 12, had watched Japan's impressive hitters throughout the tournament.

"Going out there today, throwing the ball, I was scared to death on the first pitch," he said.

Scott left the game in the top of the eighth, with Zane Conlon getting the last out.
Way to go kids!!!

The Mets actually managed to do it; they squandered a 7-game lead in September over the Phillies to lose the NL East and shove themselves right out of the playoff picture.

Congrats guys. Your Rockies are moving on. Vengence against the Phillies has been served.

Earlier today during the Penn State game, sweet, friendly, innocent Renee told me that "it's like someone's paying him to suck" when talking about the PSU quarterback who keeps getting sacked into fumbles. I've never quite heard it put like that and I nearly spit out the nachos and salsa I was eating when I heard her say it. It was quite hilarious hearing something like that from her. I guess you had to be there.

I can be heard nearly every sunday telling quarterbacks to turn off the suck.

If the Rockies can keep the momentum and there's no sign that they can't, just think! They'll be in the world series.

Yanks blow it.

All of the calls on WFAN today were about how this might be the end for Torre. I don't think it should be, but Steinbrenner is not happy and heads will roll.

This is going to be one hell of an offseason for both NY teams. Can't wait.

Go Sox!

Well, I would have liked your post a hell of a lot more if you had just stopped there.

Sox, whether white or red, I generally root against, just because Cleveland has trouble getting past them in post seasons (except that year they beat the Yankees for the pennant after being down 3 games to nothing; that was quite beautiful).

Go Cleveland!

I've been a Cleveland fan since I knew what baseball was, but now that the Yankees are beat, I won't mind Cleveland losing to another team. To your credit, I don't have any problem with the Mets, but anyone that beats the Yankees is king in my book, and it's a special treat when Cleveland does it.

Go Tribe! Go Indians! Etc! Etc!

He's stated that he would like to manage another team. If I were the Mets, I'd pick him up five minutes from being canned.

yeah, and this was a 'rebuilding' year

All those years I played my trombone in the freezing rain and snow for Youngstown State University, I never thought Jim would be anything more than a good 1-AA coach. Now he's one of the best (American) football coaches in any college or university.
