1. Behind The Times
In 1974, the NFL finally moved the goalposts to the back of the end zone because players were running into them and getting hurt. The Canadian Football League never get the memo. Just ask BC Lions defensive back Korey Banks.
2. Ozzie Being Ozzie
Ozzie Guillen recently committed blasphemy. "I work in this job for money," he said, "I don’t work for nothing. Money. That's it. The ring? [Bleep] the ring. I don't even wear my [bleeping] rings. I don't." Not exactly what fans want to hear from their past, current or future manager. Good luck, Marlins.
3. Behind The Podium
Athletes always seem dressed to impress during their televised, post-game interviews. This photo of Michael Vick at a recent press conference ruins the illusion. Sandals and socks?
4. Acrobatic First Pitch
Check out this spectacular first pitch before a recent Hokkaido Nuppon-Ham Fighters game in Japan. To quote Bart Simpson, "I can do that, but I don't wanna."
5. The NBA Is Frustrating
After one of the most successful seasons in its 65-year history, you'd think the NBA's owners and players would be scrambling to strike a deal before they are forced to miss regular season games, but it seems like they've been barely meeting once a week, if that. This fan puts what you're thinking into words.
