Message to our readers

Due to work/family commitments, we're sorry to say that the blog will only be periodically updated at best going forward. These issues are keeping us busier than Graham James in the back of a 1985 Chevy with Theo Fleury. We thank all of our faithful readers over this past year. It has been a blast.

Who're they doin

Jeff Gordan may be in one hell of a chase for Nascar's title, but one race he did win was that to Ingrid Vandebosch's heart. Ingrid is a supermodel and occasional actress, but full time Nascar groupie. She won the Elite Look of the Year Award in 1990.

McFadden rushes for SEC record

Heisman Trophy candidate Darren McFadden ran for an SEC-record 323 yards Saturday night, helping Arkansas to a 48-36 win over No. 23 South Carolina. McFadden ran for a touchdown and also threw for one. "Darren McFadden gave it his all. He is like another Barry Sanders," said Razorbacks coach Houston Nutt, who was on the staff at Oklahoma State when Sanders on the Heisman in 1988. "The bigger the game, the better (McFadden) plays, and that is why he deserves the Heisman."

Running that much in one game a lifetime for some players. To put this into perspective, McFadden ran only 4.8 miles less on Saturday than Ryan Shay did during the Olympic marathon qualifier.

Notre Dame is really bad

The Fighting Irish's season hit a new low on Saturday when Navy finally beat Notre Dame 46-44 in triple overtime on Saturday. This ended the Fighting Irish's NCAA-record winning streak against the Midshipmen at 43 games. Roger Staubach was quarterback for the Midshipmen in 1963 when they beat Notre Dame 35-14. Since then, the Irish have had their way -- that is until Saturday. Only seven times during the streak the Midshipmen had chances to win in the fourth quarter only to be thwarted by bad luck, questionable calls or big plays by the Irish

It's a big win for our program. It's a big win for the academy," Navy coach Paul Johnson said. "I'm happy I don't have to answer anything else about the streak every time we play."

This is a huge slap in the face for Notre Dame, during an already embarrassing year. Though still not as bad as being told by your girlfriend that her box is too sensitive to bang. Forever.

Throwing Smoke Flashback - World Junior 1987 Brawl

This is one of the best hockey brawls of all time. 1987 - World Junior Hockey Championship - Canada vs. USSR. While the Soviets were out of medal contention, Canada was playing for the gold medal, and were leading 4-2 at the time of the brawl. Even had they lost the game, they were assured at least the bronze medal.

It began when Pavel Kostichkin took a two handed slash at Theoren Fleury. The Soviet Union's Evgeny Davydov came off the bench, eventually leading to both benches clearing. The officials, unable to break up the fight, walked off the ice and eventually tried shutting off the arena lights, but the brawl lasted for 20 minutes before the International Ice Hockey Federation declared the game null and void. A 35 minute emergency meeting resulting in the delegates voting 7-1 to disqualify both teams from the tournament, the sole dissenter being Canadian Dennis McDonald. Both teams were also banned from attending the players' banquet at the end of the tournament.

Now that is old time hockey!

Poet's Corner

The wildfires were burning,
And Zumaya's shoulder was churning.
After a box fell on it.
Will miss half the season, quite a bit.
While off Guitar Hero 3 he will be learning.

Hingis loves coke

Martina Hingis, a five-time Grand Slam champion revealed Thursday she tested positive for cocaine at Wimbledon and will retire for a second time rather than fight what she called a "horrendous" accusation. "I am frustrated and angry," the 27-year-old Hingis said at a news conference in Zurich, Switzerland, her voice breaking as she fought back tears. "I believe that I am absolutely, 100 percent innocent." She read a prepared statement ending with the vow, "I have never taken drugs," then left without taking questions.

I don't know if Hingis did blow or not. What I do know is if that test gave a positive result for having a ton of rod in her yapper. Yeah. She's guilty.

Wolverines are thieves

Michigan State football players SirDarean Adams, T.J. Williams and Jeremy Ware have been charged with unarmed robbery at a store. They were arraigned last week in District Court in Mason on a felony robbery charge, according to court records. Williams also was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery in the altercation on April 21.

Isn't this what they call team building excercises? This is exactly like the Utah Jazz rape allegation. Exept they were armed. With 8-inch black pistols.

Kitna is a funny dude

Detroit Lions quarterback Jon Kitna and his wife dressed up as a naked man and a fast-food drive-through attendant at a teammate's Halloween party, depicting an embarrassing moment for one of the team's assistant coaches. Now Kitna is getting some critisism about this joke. Kitna said he was just trying to have fun, but regrets the scrutiny the costumes created. "If I would've known this, I wouldn't have done it because I didn't want to try to bring attention to it," Kitna said Wednesday while surrounded by reporters and television cameras.

Defensive line coach Joe Cullen was arrested last year and pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and guilty to impaired driving after police said he was driving nude through a Wendy's drive-through lane, and a week later when they said he was driving under the influence of alcohol.

This costume is killer, but not in the OJ kind of way. It could have been worse. At least Kitna didn't dress up as Korey Stringer and his wife as a cold glass of water.
