The Rev's Sermon

OK, fine. You talked me into posting.

Usually, I get to hide behind a guest column, or behind a gimmick like a suicide pool as my contributions here. It works for me, and makes the blog better as a whole. And it gives me something built in to write about.

But it's been a little while since I put my sports opinions on the front page. So here goes. For the next few paragraphs, I will attempt to not suck or be lame.

And if this doesn't work, eventually I will convince my fiancee to write two paragraphs of my columns for me, give her a name like "Sports Lady", and get into a game picking contest with her, probably for NHL games. That would be fun, wouldn't it?

- First of all, just to get my Philly stuff out of the way, I'm still amazed that there are 10 games left in the season and the Phillies are actually tied for the wild card lead. Really, this team was dead two months ago. Even the GM was saying publicly wait until 2008 for them to contend. The fire sale before the trade deadline was up there with what the Marlins used to do. And now, they are this close to postseason baseball where we all know anything can happen.

Yes, I realize that the NL belongs to the Mets and is theirs to lose right now. I am not crazy. But here are my NL related questions. Of the three teams battling for the Wild Card and the NL West title, those being the Padres, Dodgers, and Phillies, who will get in the playoffs? And... is the fact that a team like the Phillies is in real contention right now a testament to how well they have played since the deadline, or is it an indictment on the rest of the NL for sucking?

The interesting note... in the AL, 4 teams that probably will not make the playoffs would be the Wild Card leader if they were in the NL. And I would get into the AL races, but it's looking more and more like the 4 teams are decided now that the Tigers woke up and put some distance between them and the White Sox.

- Speaking of the division races, one quick note. The only reason I'm hoping for the Phillies to win the Wild Card is that I am a hat collector, and I want to buy one of those official locker room hats that the Phillies would wear during a champagne celebration. I like that stuff, and I know there's a few of you hat collectors out there.

But now, I'm seeing what the hat might look like on the front page of ESPN.com today on A-Rod's melon from last night and I'm wondering... when did The Gap get the contract to make MLB championship hats?

Really, the hats this year look to me like they should be worn with a $58 pair of jeans that are pre-faded to give that already-worn look.

I don't know if this is a good thing.

- Hey, did anybody realize that some preseason NHL games were played this week?

No? You don't give a rat's ass?

Quickly, move on!

- Somehow, through a stroke of dumb luck, I have tickets to this Monday's make up game between the Phillies and Astros. It just so happens that Roger Clemens is scheduled to pitch for Houston. Some are saying it could be one of his last starts.

Well, we've heard that before when it comes to him.

What do you think? Is Rocket finally done?

- Just wanted to say that it's now been just over 5 weeks since we started this here lawless society. And I've enjoyed how the conversation has kept going almost constantly. We're even getting activity on weekends. Thanks again to all of you for keeping the blog strong.

And one reminder to all... if any of you are around on Sunday nights, we usually get a good chat going during the Sunday night NFL game here. I'm stuck working a radio shift on Sunday nights, and I usually have time to comment in between my reports after 8PM. I'd like to see a few more of you around. Join in the discussion if you can.

go tigs!

thats all.

anonymous said...

oh, and good call on those hats and the Gap.

terrible. teeeerrible.

gimme a Division Series or World Series logo on the side of their regular caps... thats a good hat to have.

The Rev said...

Since I already have my official Phillies game hat, I don't think I can justify getting another one with the Division Series logo on the side, though I agree it would be sweet.

But a World Series logo... that would have to be purchased if the Phillies have a miracle in them.

If I start dropping hundreds of dollars on merchandise like I did when the Eagles went to the Bowl, I might get divorced before I even get married. So I have to ration my spending this year.

Beth82678 said...

Hey, I'm actually going to a NHL preseason game (Thrashers v. Blues) on Saturday night. Of course they were free club level tickets but I'm still excited to go. Nothing like seeing hockey in person, even if the games don't count yet.

temwr said...

Completely unrelated to Rev's column, Bob Knight has spoken about the OU/ORE thing. He is a funny dude.

AL seems to be wrapped up, Chisox pitching fell apart. I have no clue why they didn't try starting McCarthy. All of their starters went through a big slump and it would have been wise to shut them down for a week or two.

The fact that the Phils are still in it just shows how weak the NL is. The teams that are contending for the wild card aren't good at all. Of course now that everyone has shit on the NL all year they are guaranteed to win the world series. My advice: jump on the Mets bandwagon now.

I'm betting the Rocket plays another half year then he hangs it up. Actually he might play 3 or 4 more half years. He doesn't seem to be wearing down, and still isn't getting hit too bad. And if some owner is going to pay him 15mil or whatever to play half a season, then he'd be crazy not to. Besides he probably gets sick of sitting at home with his family all day. People seem to underestimate how annoying family is. Nobody wants to spend 24/7 with their family. And if some rich dude is going to pay you ridiculous sums of money to do something you like then you'd be crazy not to.

temwr said...

I can just see the Rev now

"sorry honey, no flowers or photographers at the wedding, but we have this bitchin' autographed Ryan Howard world series ball."

jugdish said...

OK...I'll throw my hate hat in the ring for once. I hate prefaded, pre cut, pre worn looking clothes. What the hell, why would I pay $50 + for a pair of pants that look like they are 20 years old? I say people need to earn the rips in their jeans. Buying prefaded/pre cut shit is LAME!

temwr said...

I really like watching hockey in person, but only good seats and I won't pay more than $20 per ticket.

So yeah, I don't go to any games.

jugdish said...

The only thing left to decide in the AL is who wins the Central. Sadly (for me) the White Sox are done. They had a good season, but damn that division is tough.

I still think the Mets can challenge whoever wins the AL. They steal bases, have good pitching, can hit for power. I know the NL sucks as a whole, but the Mets are right up there with those top AL teams.

jugdish said...

One more vent...the Astros won the NL wild card the last two years, so at Minute Maid Park they have banners up that say Wild Card Champions. No, sorry...the wild card is not a championship, its a spot. They won a spot in the playoffs by being the best, non-champion, in their league. That's like saying the White Sox are this year's AL Central 3rd place champions.

Maybe I can get a hat?

El Padrino said...

Ozzie Ball!

Rocket is done and honestly I can't help but think about roids. I blame the era we are in. no one gets a pass. Eveyrone is suspicious. Plus he's a douchebag

Mets all the way baby...just hope Pedro holds up. he can collapse next year if he wants, just need him one more month

nhl, yawn

The Rev said...

"sorry honey, no flowers or photographers at the wedding, but we have this bitchin' autographed Ryan Howard world series ball."

Good one. I damn near fell out of my chair with laughter.

However, I am the guy who is going to attempt to get Harry Kalas, the voice of the Phillies, to pre-record my wedding intros for the reception on CD. I have a connection. That would be kick ass!

The Rev said...

And I was implying the same thing that was said so eloquently here by Jugdish...

Rips and fades in jeans have to be earned.

Man law!

jugdish said...

Rev, that's awesome!

I'm getting married in two months...I can just imagine Ray Clay (the old Bulls PA guy, when they were good) doing out intros. That would rock!

Martin VanNostrand said...

Clemens is a tough call. You just don't know. Brett Farve seems to joining this club too. I think it's a movement really, all based on the teachings of the prophet George Foreman.

anonymous said...

Rev, hope that "intro" connection works out.. that'd be top notch!

El Padrino said...

speaking of man-laws:

i didnt know metro-sexuals could be in a beer commercial
anyone see the one with Oscar DeLa Hoya...i know he was a good boxer but he is totally a metro-sexual.

the hair, the clothes
i mean come on. how does he get the biggest line of the whole commercial? obsurd

The Rev said...

I love hockey in person. And the Flyers have $20 tickets too.

But I'm not going this year. Need to save as much money as possible. Maybe next year.

El Padrino said...

wait, i got married a year ago this october

my entrance theme was the Bulls inro music and i made my wife low five the bridal party on the way in and chest bumped my best man

my grandma was horrified

The Rev said...

It's either Harry Kalas, or the voice of the Eagles Merrill Reese. Whoever can do it. My uncle works with both of them.

I am leaning toward Harry, though, because he also has that whole NFL Films thing going too.

It's a good dream to have.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

The Rev said...

Agreed. A woman can buy them pre torn or pre faded, but not a man.

The Rev said...

And ElP... I like that idea.

I may chest bump a couple of her bridesmaids on the way in. Or would that be out of line?

Isiah Thomas said...

how has the Rocket gotten a pass in the steriods era? He's what 43 yrs old and has had some of his best years recently? Yet NO ONE in the media has even remotely linked his name to roids.

I say he'll pitch at least one more year, I'll put my money on him being in Boston.

El Padrino said...

nothing is out of line unless your name is Bob Ley

Isiah Thomas said...

Bob Knights comments were pretty funny.

Knight called for Oklahoma to forfeit its basketball game with Tech on Jan. 20, 2003, when the Sooners won 69-64 in overtime at Norman after two clock controversies in the final seconds of regulation. Video replay later showed the game clock started late after OU in-bounded the ball on the game-tying drive.

"Maybe now those people at Oklahoma understand what I was talking about," Knight told The Oklahoman.

"Had Oklahoma forfeited that game against us like I suggested, they would have gotten far more positive publicity out of that than if they had gone to the Final Four that year. Now I guess the 'duck' is swimming in the other pond."

Isiah Thomas said...

at least A-Rod got called out somewhat yesterday. Someone had to rip the guy. But Giambi? The guy had his best days while he was roided up. 100% chance he's on HGH now.

Anyway, if A-Rod needs to man-up or show more emotion he could have started by calling out Giambi.

Isiah Thomas said...

De La Hoya did lay pipe in Travis Barker's old ho though. That has to count for something.

Isiah Thomas said...

I like playoff hockey a lot. Anyone know if NHL games are still on OLN? That might be the worst tv contract in sports history. Granted they had to do something but damn, OLN?

Spaceman Spiff said...

zeke has ressurected from the grave

The Rev said...

Anybody who was a boxing champion gets to be in a beer commercial, even if he was a pretty boy. I mean, he did take punches and dole them out for a living. It counts for something.

Man law!

Isiah Thomas said...

I was gonna wait 3 days but decided to come back earlier.

anonymous said...

el pad, i wish i was at your wedding to witness that. you bagged a keeper.

and dont worry about g-ma, she forgot what happened by the next day anyways.

anonymous said...

i usually wait 7. 7 days is plenty of time before i call the beautiful baby.

Spaceman Spiff said...

can someone explain why jason giambi is so damn sweaty all game, he plays fucking first base and it looks like he just came out the shower.

Isiah Thomas said...

apparently a side effect of HGH use is profuse sweating.

The Rev said...

I do believe they will be on OLN next year.

Reminds me... I ran into Bill Clement by chance about two months ago. He lives in this area, happened to be at a winery I was also visiting, and I talked to him briefly. My fiancee was with me, and I introduced her and told her that he was on ESPN. He had to remind me that he was on OLN now.

Something tells me he had to do that a lot last year.

Isiah Thomas said...

I loved Jeff Fischer's comments in regards to Volek. He really made Volek look like an idiot and he didn't raise his voice.

All NFL head coaches should have mustaches and wear sunglasses at all times.

Isiah Thomas said...

a winery in Philly? that might fall into the milk on a hot day isn't a good idea bucket.

Isiah Thomas said...

re : Giambi sweating.

It isn't PED's its because he gave up In-n-Out burger.

The Rev said...

If you have Jeff Fisher downing your ass, then you did something really wrong.

Beth82678 said...

Whew, glad I waited a few minutes after jugdish's post about pre-worn looking jeans to return mine. Good to know there are different rules for women.

Beth82678 said...

And you know OLN is changing it's name to "Versus", which I think is supposed to happen any day now.

Isiah Thomas said...

just saw the guy from Virgin is donating $3 B to help combat global warming, and at the announcement there was Mr. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Al Gore.

Rev you have to LOVE your party sometimes. The smarmyness never ceases to amaze.

Al Gore realizes its over for him right?

Isiah Thomas said...

lockbox.

The Rev said...

The winery was actually in Bucks County, just north of Philly.

There's about 20 wineries within a half hour to an hour drive from Philly. PA is quite the wine producng state in recent years.

What you don't know about my area is that there's a lot of farm land as close as 15 minutes from the city. You don't have to travel far from Philly to be in West Bumblefuck with Goober and Gomer Pyle and Aunt Bee baking pies.

And there's always Amish Country, just an hour ride from here.

The Rev said...

OLN is changing their name to Versus?

Man, Bill Clement has a lot of explaining to do now.

"I used to be on ESPN, but now I'm on Versus which used to be OLN."

I feel bad for him. He's a great announcer stuck on a channel that no one has heard of.

temwr said...

Giambi is sweaty because he knows everyone is on to him and his HGH.

A-Rod is going to snap one day and destroy the entire Yankee team and about 4 city blocks. Then he will go back to his gay ways as if nothing happened.

Martin VanNostrand said...

This was a few weeks back but Mike & Mike were talking about NFL coaches and mustaches. I think roughly 40% of the coaches rocked one. Then they were wondering what that percentage looks like compared with the rest of the population.

Do they have to wear the "free mustache ride" t-shirt?

Isiah Thomas said...

Good info Rev, with all due respect, I'll add that to my reservoir of useless info I have, which is overflowing.

The Rev said...

That's what part of this blog is founded upon, isn't it? Useless info?

anonymous said...

zeke,

use info like this to sound well-traveled in group discussions.

"well you know Maurine, PA does offer some nice areas for wine tasting. if you travel out interstate 69, as you pass West Bumblefuck youll see a marvelous little dish out there. it's quiet and hasnt really been "found" by the public yet, so it makes for nice little weekend getaway. im sure you would enjoy."

and then you get to be smarmy yourself. bonus!

Isiah Thomas said...

rev : of course, along with hate, petty and bitter - useless info is a pillar of the LOV foundation.

iam: any time I can sound well traveled I'll take it, adding smarmy, well that just puts the cherry on top.

The Rev said...

I do that smarmy info bit all the time. It really fools people.

It's the same idea as mad libs. You get the name of a winery, the name of an obscure town, the name of a bed and breakfast in said town, and you have a "weekend getaway" to share with smarmy people at parties. Just use the same line, and fill in different towns/wineries/bed and breakfasts each time, and you're golden.

JFreak said...

Not that anyone here cares, but the Discovery team cleaned house, dropping 11 riders. I'm a bit surprised that they let go of Paolo Savoldelli and Jose Acevedo, both with stage wins in the Tour. The others were probably justified, but they let some big names go.

anonymous said...

go with your gut.. nobody cares.

:)

temwr said...

What do cyclists do after they get fired from cycling?

I guess they get real jobs...At least NFL players can fall back on their name and open up some business and let other people do all the work. Cyclists can't do that.

Heck around here if you played football for Ohio State and you didn't embarass the program you will have a job for life doing nothing at a Car Dealership/Restaurant/Landscaping Company/Construction Company/Etc.

Spaceman Spiff said...

from shanoffs blog, joey porter's pit bulls killed the neighbor's mini-horse. WTF?

Los said...

So now we're talking cycling over the NHL? Man, Bettman, you've done one helluva job!

Spaceman Spiff said...

i bet joey did it himself that crazy sumbitch

Martin VanNostrand said...

I bet cyclists pull it off in Europe. Jan Ullrich's House of Sausage is probably a fine establishment.

ToddPacker said...

Rev

Phils will crumble and fold in the final week.

I'm not sure, but are you getting married soon?

LOV is some good shit, much better than DB

The Rev said...

Todd...

a part of me believes you. I know how capable the Phillies are of folding. I know it too well from last year, from 2003, etc.

ToddPacker said...

Whether or not the Phils make it to the post season, they still have Utley and Howard combo for the future.

Those guys are scary good.

Beth82678 said...

jfreak, you've got one person here who cares about cycling - and that's pretty surprising news about Discovery Team.

But from what I understand, in Europe cyclists are the equivalent of baseball/football/basketball players here. They (and soccer players) get all the fame, fortune and women.

temwr said...

WTF is a mini-horse?

Spaceman Spiff said...

a small horse, a miniature horse

Spaceman Spiff said...

Whitlock has to write letters to himself because nobody else will write him.

WNBA point guard = Mini Horse = Awesome

Isiah Thomas said...

I've said it before, I like Whitlock's column.

One thing about the Ore/Okla game, YES Okla got screwed, but you still have to make plays. If Okla stops Oregon on their last scoring drive the game is over.

ToddPacker said...

Or if the Sooners hit that last second FG

Martin VanNostrand said...

True dat, The refs made a bad call but they didn't give up the TD or not block the D on the FGA.

El Padrino said...

again, porter and ray lewis

Man Dr. Z is blowing the Pats hard today. I guess Simmons must have had to come up for air and King wasn't around so Dr. Z jumped in.

jugdish said...

Does anyone here listen to Jim Rome on ESPN radio?

temwr said...

I hate Jim Rome. He is a mini Steven A Smith.

All he does is yell and whine and complain. He is like an evil, ugly woman.

temwr said...

And in random news.

Spaceballs, cartoon, why not?

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/TV/09/21/television.brooks.reut/index.html

jugdish said...

His show is really tough to listen to. Its like he rambles on about every topic for about 5 minutes longer than he should, with like 15 second pauses between each comment. And the comments are not even funny. I like his interviews sometimes, but you have to sit through his worthless babble.

Today he talked about how hard it is to sell copiers for about 7 minutes...good show Jim!

Rome: the only reason his show can be moderately tolerable is because he is a condescending ass, and speaks in a "teacher disciplining a student" tone. it's like everyone else is missing the point and he's the only one that has the answer.

and yet that makes him fun to listen to sometimes.. because you dont hear nearly enough people being condescending asses on tv.

Isiah Thomas said...

I used to listen to him, haven't done so in a while. I'll tune him in during lunch sometimes.

I'm a fan.

For ESPN sports radio, I'll listen to the Sports Bash every day.

Isiah Thomas said...

I cain't believe its been nearly 20 yrs since Spaceballs was out.

Why'd it take so long for this? There's a whole generation of kids who probably have no ideas about Spaceballs.

El Padrino said...

in NY

WFAN
no espn radio for me

jugdish said...

I've seen his TV show, and he is not the same on there...that isn't bad. Yet for some reason, I still listen when I'm driving around at lunch.

"He's a loathesome, offensive brute...yet I can't look away!"

Isiah Thomas said...

"According to Ireland's Daily Mirror, Michael Jackson has been looking into buying an estate on the Emerald Isle, and is supposedly interested in opening up a - wait for it - leprechaun-inspired theme park.

"Michael is deadly serious about this idea," a source told Ireland's Daily Mirror. "He loves the whole idea of leprechauns and the magic and myths of Ireland. It would cost around 500 million Euros [about $635 million] to do. He's always wanted to open his own theme park and he thinks Ireland is the perfect place and it will all be built around the leprechaun theme." The cash-strapped singer reportedly is meeting with businessmen to raise money for the park. There are regular sightings of the reclusive singer in Ireland, and one newspaper there has set up a Wacko Watch Hotline for readers to phone in sightings."

El Padrino said...

oh jacko, if only you and mike tyson can live in the same house and be taped.....

El Padrino said...

thejaywhite said...

thanks

ToddPacker said...

As far as Rome goes, I think his TV show blows, but his Radio show is some good background at work entertainment. Regular callers, condesending attitude and some good guests make for an OK show (compared to local crap). The best part is usually the everyday go-to jokes (Kind of like when Kilborn had a late-night show).

Spaceman Spiff said...

DMX impreganates woman, claims he was raped, but get this- his wife believes believes and defends him.

"Tashera Simmons -- wife to rapper DMX -- stands by her man as he talks openly about recently fathering a child with a Washington, D.C., woman. “She raped me," (DMX says). While his wife "blocks out" the experience to cope, DMX gained a more valuable lesson: "Turn on the light before I go to sleep," he said."

so watch out guys.

Isiah Thomas said...

did it say if she was a "rough rider"?

Sorry couldn't resist.

temwr said...

GATECH -17 is a tough call.

I think they beat up on Virginia, but I am not sure they win by 17.

It's at home, so if forced to bet I'd take GATECH.

anonymous said...

wow, thats appauling. what has this world come to? i am ashamed for women everywhere.

you should be ashamed of yourselves!

Beth82678 said...

DMX needs to keep quiet, he's going to ruin it for all us women rapists out there. We've been able to stay under the radar so far.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I'm with Zeke on the Sports Bash. That's a good listen. Kusilias (sp) does a nice job filling in for Mike & Mike as well. The ESPN station here pulled Sports Bash for a local show though. And it SUCKS. Their afternoon drive ratings can't be up after that move. There's no way. They seriously talk about HS football a couple times a week. Killing me.

ebntx said...

beth if you need the practice, i am sure there are more than a few potential victims for you here.

Beth82678 said...

But if they're willing it isn't exactly rape is it?

Spaceman Spiff said...

i pray everyday that kusilias will fill in for dan patrick.

ebntx said...

hey, that would be my excuse to my lady.

El Padrino said...

anybody want a tshirt that says

RAPE ME

I AM ?

temwr said...

Kobe should have used that defense.

Beth82678 said...

Man, good thing I'm only the woman here. I'd be villified for making even a partial joke about rape. (But then again in general I agree with men who say women take jokes much to seriously at times.)

jugdish said...

Hey...if pants that are faded and torn sell...do you think I could market pants that have stains on them?

temwr said...

Depends on the type of stain and who you are marketing them too

Beth82678 said...

I'd think it would depend more on where exactly the stain is too...

jugdish said...

Hey...is that shit stain real?

No, I bought these pants like that, but this hole in my knee is real. I fell down the stairs earlier.

Spaceman Spiff said...

keep your jizz stains to yourself

jugdish said...

No no...those stains would come on blue dresses.

Beth82678 said...

Note to self - don't wear my blue dress at the first LOV get-together.

jugdish said...

You can wear your faded, ketchup stained pants though...

temwr said...

I bet there are some jeans out there that look like they have oil stains on them.

That way A-Rod can look like he was working on his Hog.

jugdish said...

So where are we having this LOV get together? My vote is for Texas since we have multiple people on this blog from TX.

Spaceman Spiff said...

tem hates biracial, rich, good looking, on popular team athletes

Beth82678 said...

I just assumed we were all meeting up at the Rev's reception, as long as it's an open bar that is.

jugdish said...

A-rod on his hog is probably like my old neighbor. He was a lawyer who bought a hog. He'd drive it down to the cul-de-sac, stop, get off and walk it around the loop, and drive it to the other end of the street.

The Rev said...

My reception is May 5th, 2007 in Delaware.

I'm hoping to have an afterparty at a local Mexican restaurant for Margaritas. That is where you ought to all meet.

jugdish said...

We are planning an after party after our reception too, but everyone keeps telling us we will be too tired to do that. I say bullshit...we'll be up for it!

Martin VanNostrand said...

"...Delaware, Hi, we're in Delaware."

somebody please get that.

anonymous said...

after the party its the afterparty and after the party its the hotel lobby.

and after that, the really tall drunk dude in a Rape Me t-shirt, complete with stains and his "iamunstoppable" nametag will be passed out on the floor somewhere.

and he'll also reek of mexican food.

Spaceman Spiff said...

and the smaell will come from the seat of his pants

temwr said...

I am a hater.

The Rev said...

My reception is going to end at 8:30pm. I'll be more tan ready for our afterparty. In fact, I might need it.

temwr said...

Oh I also only hate if it is all of those things combined. Any one of them doesn't do it. It is the combination.

The Rev said...

I'm the only sumbitch crazy enough to go out for Margaritas after my wedding reception to a Mexican restuarant on Cinco de Mayo.

Thank God my hotel room is next door to the restaurant.

temwr said...

My reception ends at 11pm. It is a long time from now though 9-2-07. I have no clue what is going on afterwards.

By the laws of my homestate (even though the wedding is in OH the laws of WV still apply to me) there will be an open bar and Country Roads will be played.

Is it me or does this blog have a disproportionate number of people getting married soon?

JFreak said...

Are accomendations provided?

Isiah Thomas said...

MV : Wayne's World

The Rev said...

There are definitely a disproportionate people on this blog getting married.

And I bet there's a bunch of people out there who thought that we were just a bunch of guys who don't get laid and live in our parent's basement.

Well not me... at least, not anymore.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Thank you Zeke!

ebntx said...

btw, this one's for you iam...

caught the shakira concert last night here. best visual stimulation ever i've had in a long while. best part it was free for me. my lady's friend gave her the tix for her b-day. good times, good times.

Martin VanNostrand said...

That's an action packed day Rev. I'm dj-ing/spinning for a friends reception on St. Patricks day. It will be insane and House of Pain will definitely be on the wheels of steel.

The Rev said...

You're a fellow wedding DJ, MV? Who knew?

TOKYO (AP) - Japanese baseball legend Sadaharu Oh was recuperating Tuesday after having his stomach completely removed by surgeons because of cancer, his doctor said.

The 66-year-old home-run king and manager was hospitalized last week after tests found a tumour in his stomach. The operation Monday was successful, his team, the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks, and his chief doctor said.

Peter King saying that the Skins might be interested in Brett Favre if they continue to suck (both the Pack and Skins that is)

Not sure how much interest there is on this board about golf, but the 1st half of the 1st day of Ryder Cup just finished. The Euros lead the States 2&1/2 to 1&1/2, and in the marquee match Tiger & Furyk beat Monty & Harrington.

(The 1&1/2 for the States already ties their total for the entire first day of 2004, but they've still got a ways to go.)
