Derrick Nix was driving a 2011 Dodge Charger

Ozzie Guillen could not be less aware of his surroundings

Ozzie Guillen is guilty of being dumb, and a drama queen like MLB has never seen. He is ignorant, but he cannot plead ignorance in his latest mouth mess–his clueless comments in Time magazine’s online edition about Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Guillen has lived in Florida in the offseasons while managing the Chicago White Sox; he has managed Cuban players who have helped him win...

The greatest NHL upset of the last 20 years

The NHL playoffs are upon us, and that means we are about to enter into 2 1/2 months of exciting bliss.  There is no better sport that has 7 game series than hockey.   Unlike the NBA, upsets always have, and the 8th place team has a legit shot at winning the Stanley Cup.   All it takes is a goaltender to get hot for a few weeks, and an unsung hero to come out of nowhere to have...

One week ago, it appeared as if Michigan Wolverines point guard Trey Burke was headed to the NBA. But He has released a statement claiming that he will return to Ann Arbor to continue his collegiate career "I have so much more to develop as both a student and athlete, and there is no better place to do that than here at Michigan.

Lamar Odom’s Mavs career is over

Lamar Odom was the NBA 6th Man of the Year just a season ago. Now, he has mutually agreed with the Dallas Mavericks to part ways, in manner of speaking, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com “The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team,” Odom said in a statement to ESPN.com. “I’m sorry that things...

Soccer fan lays out others with two punches

I wouldn’t label this as something you would only see at a soccer game, because this is pretty common occurrence when FSU and Miami hook up. But check out this Mexican fan lay a couple people out his right hook. He won, as did Mexico in there battle with Canada, apparently.

Why are people saying that Gregg Williams deserves a 2nd chance? He already had it

We could probably argue that he has had a 3rd and 4th chance as well. Gregg Williams, the embattled defensive coordinator that was the figurehead of the Bounty-Gate scandal with the New Orleans Saints, is looking at the real possibly of never coaching again in the NFL. He received an indefinite suspension, and Roger Goodell could opt to never lift it. However, there have been several...

Tebow: You’re not a good role model

Yesterday was Easter Sunday, and that means that many people calling themselves Christians celebrated the holiday at church. A special service took place in Texas, with the main attraction being Tim Tebow of the New York Jets. The outspoken athlete took that time to share his beliefs and his faith with 15,000 on hand. But what struck many people is that Tebow actually said something...

Masters Sunday

Use this for all your Masters-y needs.  Some quick bullet points… Peter Hanson’s playing well, but I fully expect him to pucker up…this is Phil’s tournament to lose. Of the contenders, Bubba Watson and Lee Westwood are my favorites to make the leaders sweat.  As much as I’d love to see something like last year, I think anyone past -4 is going to have to shoot something...

4-year-old girl lays out boy in soccer game

Youth sports have been providing us with some pretty great clips as of late. This one is of a youth soccer game involving a little girl going full tilt after the ball which is bad news for the boy who had control of it. Little kids are like rubber, so both popped up pretty quickly. Love how she ceremonially dusts off her hands after laying the kid out. H/T Total Pro Sports

BIG NO-NO

A's Cespedes marvels at first home run

Welcome to the Big Leagues, Yoenis Cespedes. But you better check yourself. Not even being a week into his MLB career, the Oakland A's Cespedes hit a mammoth home run and marveled at his blast by staring at it as he left the box. That’s a big no-no in this league. Cespedes must have been told by teammates or his manager to apologize after the game, because this is exactly...

7th grade goalie trucks another player

What is the better?  The hit or the celebration. At least the kid who had to be peeled off the turf didn’t take it too bad, shaking the goalies hand. Love the coach with a big grin on his face the entire time the one player is laid out. H/T Cosby Sweaters

The Odds-On Favorite: Halfway Odds for the 2012 Masters

Because, why not right?  After the cut at the 2012 Masters, Bovada has updated their odds to reflect the current standings and smaller field.  With 43 players available to bet on (and no “Field” bet option this year), it’s a lot harder to zero in on just one final winner.  The current second-round leaderboard is reflected in the current odds; with the exception of Phil Mickelson...

Sheriff practices with former golf pro, who happened to be an inmate

I have always wanted to spend a few hours on the course with a golf pro, but with lack of funds because of kids, and lack of time because of kids has kept me from that. At some point, I just hope I can keep it on the cheap somehow. Take for instance Captain Jeff Donahue of the LA County Sheriff’s Department. He was able to do that by bringing a former inmate with him to the course...
