Sayers: Halas would have bounced Benson long ago

What was it that Atkins said....? Halas throws nickels around like sewer covers.  (Jun 11, 2008 | post #1)

No answers from Big Brown's camp

Wrong, RM. The horse was taking steroids on the 1st and 15th through April. Those specific steroids are allowed in all three states where the triple crown in raced. Not in CA. Look it up. If they don't change, the "sport" is doomed.  (Jun 9, 2008 | post #27)

No applause for Big Brown's bosses

Would the horse have won any race if steroids were banned? We'll never know. But it better not be an issue again.  (Jun 8, 2008 | post #2)

Stubborn mortgage rates defy conventional wisdom

The fed cut rates for the benefit of the loser banks that created this financial crisis. As said above, consumer rates are based on treasury bills. The banks are hurting, the government bails them out. The people are hurting and dumping their homes on the marketplace, but let's give a tax break to the home builders, so they can put more homes on the market. People go bankrupt, the banks get bailed out. That's your government at work. Not happy with the rates, even though they are historically good? Call your congressman. As if...  (Jun 8, 2008 | post #17)

Opportunity ahead for McCain among women voters

Women for banning abortion. Women who want to see their sons die in a foreign land for no reason. Women who like to be dumped because a prettier and wealthier version came along. Women who know their place is barefoot in the kitchen. Women who don't care about improving our health care system. Women who want America to spend record amounts of money on defense aimed at a phantom Cold War opponent. Women who don't mind $4 to the gallon. Women that don't care about global warming. Women that enjoy second class status. Women that could care less about gays. Women that believe in racial profiling. Women that love that our country is run by lobbyists and liars. Women who loved Bush and Cheney. Women with holes in their heads.  (Jun 5, 2008 | post #16)

Google Comeback Id. No way Shillary and her tent suits are going to be V.P. Thank you Willie Thunderlust. It's the war stupid. It's the economy stupid. It's Bush stupid. McCain can get himself a younger and richer wife, but he still ain't headed to the White House. (Does the tone of his voice make anyone else wonder if his captors cut his cajones?) It was so compassionate of him to dump the wife that waited for him all that time he was a prisoner. Anyone hear of the Keating 5? Obama is going to win just as many evangelical votes given how Bush **** them in the bunghole. Yep. It's tough being a Republican pimp. Maverick my A.  (Jun 4, 2008 | post #9)

Cubs' Carlos Marmol: I'm not wearing down -- Major League...

Lou You blew that game and you know it. You had a rested Marmol sitting around and you send Lilly out for the eighth? And then with a man on third with one out you did what you should have done at the beginning of the inning. You bring in Marmol. Great. You saved the bullpen for the Dodgers by losing a game you could have won. Lilly did his job, but you had to ask for more. Worry about tomorrow when you come to it. Go Cubs  (Jun 4, 2008 | post #1)

Ex-Cubs hurler Prior to have season-ending surgery -- Hea...

Fergie Jenkins used to pitch complete games like all of his contempories, such as Gibson, Seaver, Koufax, Drysdale and Marichal. How is it that 3 decades later this amounts to abuse? Wood threw the hardest slider ever, and pitched 18 innings in a single day in high school in Texas. He was shoulder surgery waiting to happen. Prior was the towel boy, if you remember how he used to warm up. Every measure possible was taken to make him great, and I dare say that cheating was part of it. His body fell apart right about the same time as a former great Boston shortstop. Steroids! Don't blame Dusty. Big Z can still take it. If Woody makes it through the season healthy, I bet you find him going back to starting and Marmol moving into the closer role. Take the easy way out and blame it on Dusty. Or blame it on a guy who was just doing what any fan wearing a glove would have done. Blame it Barton. Or tell anyone who listens about your 5 cent shoulder as if that has anything to do with Prior. Please. At least they don't wear size 18 pant suits and talk out of both sides of their mouths. Go Cubs. Go Obama. Yes we will!!  (Jun 1, 2008 | post #11)

Can politics get any uglier? Thank you for going so very low, Hillary, in your quest to get what you felt you deserved. So it was your turn, was it? Whatever Bill accomplished after office has all been lost thanks to you. You are yesterday's child, no matter how many face lifts you got. Just think about all those Hollywood "heavyweights " that backed the wrong horse. That means you, MEATHEAD! Yesterdays children. Good riddance.  (May 31, 2008 | post #9)
