Last night in Josh Hamilton hate

It turns out that hitting a baseball is hard when you are fighting through injury and have barely swung a bat in the last three weeks. It is for this reason that some people didn’t think Josh Hamilton should play last night, or possibly in the...

Michigan Defensive End Frank Clark Compares Team to the Titanic (and thinks it's a good thing)

Some football players are great at giving interviews and sound bytes. They seem to know just what to say without saying too much, and can give the reporters a quote or two they can use without saying anything wrong. Guys like that, however, are the exception and not the norm. Not everyone is able to think on their feet when they have a microphone in their face.Michigan defensive...
