  • If your team is not in the World Series, who do you root for?

    Do you root along league lines? (National vs. American?) Do you simply watch the games without a rooting interest? Or do you do as I do, pick a team to root for to make it more fun? (Sometimes that can be tough to do, and usually ends up with me rooting more against a team I dislike rather than for a team i like.)

  • Which Canadian rule should be added to American football?

    Although I mainly watch American football (makes sense since I'm from the US) I sometimes see a CFL game. I want to know what rule the CFL fans think would change the NFL the most if it was adopted.

  • Is a walk truly as good as a hit?

    In my mind, no, simply because a hit provides the opportunity for the defense to make a mistake.The only possible exception would be a bases loaded walk to win the game. Any other opinions?

  • Why would Orioles manager Dave Tremblay?

    not use a position player to pitch late in game 1 last night? It's something that, while not real common, is probably done once or twice a year in the big leagues. I would have thought that because they were playing a doubleheader, he would have rather saved his bullpen for game 2. Was it pride, stubbornness or stupidity?

  • How is it that we can go...?

    from not hearing a thing about poor little Matt having to pay taxes on his ball for days, but then when one person asks a question, dozens more seem to pop up almost instantly? Mob mentality or a lack of originality on the part of the people asking?

  • MIchael Vick fans - what do you think?

    For weeks now, the Vick supporters have been using the "innocent until proven guilty" method of supporting him. The other thing that seems to have been thrown out a lot has been that this was all racially motivated. Now that it appears that he is going to plead guilty to avoid more charges, do you think he is still innocent? You all seem... show more
    For weeks now, the Vick supporters have been using the "innocent until proven guilty" method of supporting him. The other thing that seems to have been thrown out a lot has been that this was all racially motivated. Now that it appears that he is going to plead guilty to avoid more charges, do you think he is still innocent? You all seem to have disappeared for a while. Or is it that you are trying to come up with some other way to defend his actions? Just curious.

  • Is Tiger Woods strictly a front runner?

    I have to add, there is no doubt in my mind that he is the greatest golfer ever, but I noticed something about his statistics in majors that got me to thinking. He has either had the outright lead or been tied for the lead 13 times going into the final round of major tournaments, and has never been beaten in any of those cases. He has won 13 majors... show more

He has either had the outright lead or been tied for the lead 13 times going into the final round of major tournaments, and has never been beaten in any of those cases. He has won 13 majors in his career. Therefore, he has never been able to win a major without having the lead going in to Sunday. Why do you suppose this is?

He did not ask where can I find a necklace like Hideki Okajima's, or where did Hideki Okajima buy his necklace. Yahoo removed my answer, and I have looked over the guidelines and can't find any reason for them to remove them. Is this something anyone can do simply by asking Yahoo to remove their answer, would it have been done by the asker, or would Yahoo have found it inappropriate in some way? Whatever the reason, whoever decided it shouldn't be allowed to stay is either an idiot or has absolutely no sense of humor. Your thoughts?

  • How would baseball have been different if Ted Williams had been traded for Joe DiMaggio?

    In 1949, a trade was proposed that would have sent Ted Williams from the Red Sox to the Yankees for Joe DiMaggio. How do you think this would have changed the careers of both men, the teams themselves, and the American League pennant races of the 1950's?
