Does it come as any surprise that Ozzie Guillen was fired as the Marlins manager. He was even a worse choice to manage a team than Bobby Valentine.
The New York Islanders are moving to Brooklyn, and no, they are not changing their name to Brooklyn Islanders. The team will still be named their New York Islanders. The team will move to the Barclay Center after their lease expires after the 2014-2015 season and their new lease is iron-clad and will be for 25 years.
To All You Yankee Haters!!!
I finally figured you out. It took me many, many years and now I know the reason you hate the Yankees.
Yankee Haters - those people who's baseball teams can't come close to matching the great history of the Yankees, and are jealous of them.
27 World Series (16 more than the St. Louis Cardinals), 40 American League Pennants (No one comes close), Great Hitters, Great Pitchers and Great Managers.
No Team can come close to the greatness of the New York Yankees!!!
So while other teams just strive to make the playoffs, for the Yankees anything less than winning the World Series is a failure.
Now that Dwight Howard and Steve Nash are with the Lakers, are the Lakers the team to beat in the NBA? Can Miami give them a run for their money?
NASCAR has the Sprint Car Series that towards the end of the NASCAR season the top 12 points leaders have the chance to win the Championship. So how come 40 cars are still racing? I think only the 12 cars in the chance should be allowed to race. Look how wide open the track would be. No crashes, only pit stops. If these are the best of the best, that should be enough for me.
The 2012 PGA Tour had 98 golfers who won more than $1 million dollars. WOW. Peter Hanson won $1,511,221.30 in only 11 events ($137,383.76 an event). Rory McIlory won $8,047,952 in 16 events ($502,997 and event) was the leader.
Career money leader is Tiger Woods who went over the $100 million dollar mark. He is followed by Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh, both have earned over $67 million dollars.
Meanwhile only 10 ladies on the LPGA tour won $1 million dollars this year.
What ever happened to the PBA???
I do miss Wide World of Sports. ďThe Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat.Ē That was a Sunday staple on TV. Cliff diving from Mexico, skiing in Norway, bull riding, hurling, rodep, curling, jai-alai, firefighterís competitions, surfing, logger sports, and how about demolition derby, softball, badminton, track and field, gymnastics, figure skating plus odd sports that never made it big on TV found its way on this ionic show. Damn I do miss it.
Wide World of Sports was the first to broadcast Wimbledon, The Indy 500, NCAA Menís Basketball Championship, Daytona 500, U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Little League World Series, British Open Golf Tournament to name a few.
Is there College Football on the West Coast?
