I haven't been posting as often as I would like: I've been working on a new TV pilot called "Pimp My Firefox."

For the Love of the Game

I want to discuss with you my view on pure sports. What makes a sport pure? I submit to you that a sport is pure so long as the rules enforcers (referees or umpires) don't determine the outcome. That being said, on the playgrounds and fields basketball and soccer are great games, sadly however, at the professional level lobbying the referees is too much a part of the game. To put it bluntly, I don't think an athlete should be rewarded for being a cry baby. Here is a partial list of my hierarchy of sports.

  • Basketball
  • Soccer

  • Marginal:
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Any judged sport (e.g. Figure Skating, Gymnastics, Diving, etc.)

  • Best:
  • Baseball
  • Timed sports (track and field, etc.)
  • Combat sports (Boxing, Wrestling, etc.)

  • Tell me if I'm wrong.

    Andy Petite is 80 games above .500

    for his career. It got me thinking "How many pitchers were 162 games above .500?". The answer: 2 all-time.

  • Cy Young 511-316
  • Grover Alexsander 372-208

  • Honorable mention: Lefty Grove 300-141

    I had a very bold idea

    People who know me know that I am a fan of Kool-Aid. I am also a fan of Gatorade, and have powdered mixs of both in my home at all times. The other day I thought "What if I combined the two?" The idea is so beautiful and simple I can't believe the results have not been published before. I am here saying that this bastard creation is truly amazing.

    Wood on the DL

    Kerry Wood landed on the DL...again. That in and of itself is not surprising. What is surprising is the Tribune headline that reads
    Cubs ace Kerry Wood returned to the disabled list with what the team called right-shoulder stiffness.
    Since when is Wood an ace? Move him to the bullpen already.
