= One Leif That Fell Far From the Tree

I apologize for the irregularity in posting intervals. But to be honest, this isn't really the meatiest part of the sports season. Case in point: Pete Rose took the week off from betting.

Bode Miller has apologized for his comments concerning drinking and skiing. The media tide has turned a bit in recent days, with more pundits defending Bode than chastising him. To be fair, his comment was that it is difficult to ski while wasted. If he took the opposite position, I could understand the uproar. But what he said was a fact. And although it is impossible to condone drinking & skiing, at least Bode is out on the course alone, endangering only himself. It's not like the comments came from Jimmy Johnson or Tony Stewart. And why don't I remember a similar uproar when David Wells revealed he threw a no-hitter drunk?

I found myself up at 12:30 am the other night about to watch the Martina Hingis comeback match at the Australian that not proof it is the off-season for sports?

Speaking of the Australian Open, the rumors are swirling that Maria Sharapova and Andy Roddick are a couple. If they had a kid, do you think it would be better looking than Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf's?

Steve Francis was suspended for a game after refusing to return to a game during the fourth quarter of another routine blowout of the Magic. The question remains: should the rest of the team also be suspended for refusing to play anything that resembles basketball? UPDATE: Grant Hill will be out the next 7-10 days. I know, I too was shocked by the news.

And finally, William Shatner sold his kidney stone to our friends at in exchange for $20,000 that will be donated to Hurricane Katrina relief. Say what you want about, but at least they are consistent in their ridiculous purchases. I just wish they'd bring back their streaker campaign.
