ESPN.com Knocks It Out of the Park...

...by telling the story of Genarlow Wilson. It's just as disturbing now as it was several months ago when I saw it on Real Sports.

R-Fed vs. Roddick...

...at 3:30 a.m., who's with me?

-- BTW Sharapova and Serena Williams' ass are still in the women's draw.

-- In case you needed proof that the NHL is back, there's nothing that says revival more than a mid-week All-Star Game on the "Versus" network.

-- ESPN ranks the 80 Super Bowl teams and gives the nod to the 1989 San Francisco 49ers over the 1985 Chicago Bears. I have to agree based on the Bears' 14-point beatdown in the Orange Bowl that season. Had the Patriots not shocked upset the Dolphins at home I wonder how the rematch in New Orleans would have turned out. The also rank the 2003 Rams over 30 spots above the 2003 Patriots team that beat them, once again I agree.

-- Peyton Manning sounds off.

Coming to Miami? Bring a Vest....

....because Tank Johnson will be on the loose.

Cook County Judge John Moran, citing his desire to continue to live a pain-free life, gave the loveable ammo smuggler the green light.

The Daily Bread


-- Ninth Bengals player arrested in 2006-07 season. I have nothing funny to add to this.


-- Bill Parcells retires for the final time (we think) and T.O. ceremoniously kicks him on the way out.


-- Floyd Mayweather Sr. says that even though he and his son, world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., don't see eye-to-eye he will not help train Oscar de la Hoya to beat him...unless he gets two million dollars.


-- The NBA's new dynamic duo rolls in their first game together after Nuggets are granted special request to use two balls on offense.


-- Meanwhile the Knicks allow the Miami Heat to go on a 27-0 first-quarter run despite playing without D-Wade and Shaq.


-- Maria Sharapova is still in the Australian Open. Yippee!!

Grossman...

...worst ever QB to be in a Super Bowl?

I'm just wondering. I mean Trent Dilfer's been there (and won). Tony Eason was terrible to begin with and gloriously awful in the big game when Richard Dent probably could've gotten arrested for abuse.

That being said as bad as Grossman can be (and ask Bears fans how can he can be) he was nearly perfect on the drive that, in essence, closed out the game yesterday.

Needless to say, if you were a Bears fan and you could swap out Grossman for any quarterback in the league other than Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, would you do it and who would you swap him out for?
