Discuss any sports from high school to college to professional and from Athletics to um, zwimming... and NASCAR!
Right ok, guys this is what's happening. The goal is to get a top 10 ranking of the greatest sportspeople of all-time.
For the next 7 days, this is for nominations to it. a person can make a maximum of 3 nominations
how things will proceed afterwards will depend on the amount of nominations...
The 2012 Summer Olympics.
What's your take?
Mike and Robert Bryan must have called a truce years ago. Twins, no less. Kudos to them.
We have twins. Played tennis in high school and did NOT want to be paired together.
My brother is 13 months older than am I and we fought like dogs. Playing together? I can't see that...
I thought she would win, but I didn't think Maria would be embarrassed.
I was right about Serena winning and wrong about Maria being embarrassed.
Kudos to Williams.
When it comes to the 2012 London Olympics, the keyword that best represents archery would be 'Korea.' Korea not only has the world's best archers, but has the world's best coaches.
Of the 40 countries that participated in archery, 11 countries had Korean coaches.
The myth is that as Korean...
A batter wins the Triple Crown when he leads his league or the Majors in home runs, RBIs and batting average. There have been 14 Triple Crown winners in Major League history. Rogers Hornsby and Ted Williams did it twice.
1878 Paul Hines
1887 Tip O'Neill
1894 Hugh Duffy
1901 Nap Lajoie
so the tour de france starts on saturday.
This is the highlight of my sporting year and also the final two weeks overlap with my annual leave (i get to see the best of france without leaving the comfort of my living room. that's the live)
This year is missing some of the main protagonists -...
I am referring to players that played on teams that had a drought of talent when they picked up a player that turned them around.
Alcindor: I cannot recall any player having such an immediate impact like Lew Alcindor did. The Bucks were 27-55 the year before they got Lew Alcindor. His rookie...
Who's your pick? Who do you like? Watch any of the awesome games this weekend?
As much as it pains me, I think it will be the Heat's to lose. They have such an easy path to the finals now with Rose going down, Boston losing Rondo for a game (and already down against the Hawks) and NYK not...
9.5 out. Has Valentine been fired yet?
They can't even win at Fenway; 22 and 24 at home.
I cannot see this happening. It would be egregious to the vast majority of the team that had no part in it, at least based on what I know.
Seventy years ago, when Ted Williams hit .400, he was the first to do so in 11 years. It was not all that uncommon. Today, there isn't even anybody batting .370 in mid June, and if anybody hit over .370, they would be the first to do it in 11 years -- as rare an accomplishment at Williams' .400.
Serious debate/question here. I was in an argument with a friend of mine yesterday about the difficulty levels behind American Football and European Futbol/Soccer (I'm going to refer to it as Futbol for clarity's sake from here on).
My friend is a die hard futbol fan, and he's paying a lot of...
1. boston celtics
3. red sox
6. NY giants
7. ny jets
8. the rest of the NY and boston teams
9. Notre Dame
10. SF Giants

1 Novak DJOKOVIC (SRB)
2 Rafael NADAL (ESP)
3 Roger FEDERER (SUI)
4 Andy MURRAY (GBR)
Which college team has won the most national titles in both men and women sports?
Which college conference has won the most national titles?
Which college conference is the best in all sports?
The answer is obviously the PAC-12
He lied. It doesn't matter because Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa and Rafael Palmeiro also lied. They used steroids. Roger Clemens was my favorite player, and I did not want him to go to jail. Nor did most other baseball fans.
I hope Spain vs Italy Final!
Maybe I don't watch sports much because the announcers are crummy buttons. They are. Little wonder I seldom watch a single play of a single game.
Most of them seem terrified of silence because they constantly run their mouths. They run me nuts. The use the words "amazing" and/or "awesome" in...
well im not really into sports but the european (and world) championships here are always loads of fun. the dutch are typically a very calm and down-to-earth people, but at the big soccer events they go stark-raving crazy! :drink: :cuckoo: :beer: streets get drowned in orange banners and flags and...
Rather, his name is Metta World Peace. What a thug.
The announcers try to rationalize at first until they watch it again.
The Yankees got off to a shaky start this year but have started winning. Andy Pettitte is helping a lot, just his presence. I look for the Yankees to make the 2012 World Series.
New York Yankees http://www.yankees.com
Bosh did not get much press this year. He was crucial in their season. I wish the Dallas Mavericks could sign him to a one year contract.
THIS YEAR: He averaged 18 points per game, 9 rebounds per game, shot 49% from the from the floor, and made 82% of his free throws.
In Miami, no way...
Texas Rangers, 8th lowest ERA in the league:
Rangers lead the league in hitting:
Glavine and Maddux have won over 300 games, and Glavine has 2 Cy Youngs and Maddux 4.
Smoltz is the only pitcher in major league history to top both 200 wins and 150 saves. I think he's won 1 Cy Young but I am too lazy to look it up.
Glavine is the only one of the 3 that hasn't over 3,000...

Well Audi just shows their dominance of it, once again. This is their 11th win in the last 13 races

Big Sandy, football, the most dominate team in Texas football history and perhaps the most dominate in high school history in America.
Big Sandy in 1975 scored 824 points and allowed 13 points as they won their third-straight state title. Scores:
Big Sandy 66 Union Grove 0
Big Sandy 60...
