Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks started organized team activities Monday with little talk about anything that took place on the field. That was understandable considering the recent news about suspensions and arrests. “It’s a very important opportunity for us to go ahead and figure it out and to help these guys so they can get what they deserve,” Carroll said. “Unfortunately, you go wrong, you get popped, and that’s how this thing works. I’m really disappointed we have to deal with anything like this, but there (are) going to be other issues too, and we’re going to have to deal with them.” [USAToday]
Define Irony…Pete Carroll is trying to figure out why players keep getting ‘popped’. Pete Carroll, himself, would have gotten ‘popped’ if he didn’t bail on USC before the hammer came down. Trying to figure out why NFL players keep getting in trouble with the law or with steroids is like trying to figure out why teenage boys masturbate to porn. With that said, Carroll will have a better chance of trying to get teenage boys to stop masturbating to porn before he can stop NFL arrests, etc. YAWN!
Last week, Corinthians hosted Boca Juniors in the second-leg of the 8th round of the Copa Libertadores. Boca Juniors won the first leg of the tilt 1-0 at home. A week later, the two teams drew 1-1 at Corinthians which saw Boca go through on aggregate.
In this match, Alexandre Pato had the ball wide open on the goal line and did some spaztic move and tripped over his own feet. Yes, the FAIL was funny, but the reaction from the fans was even better. Talk about heart break.

I came across this photo of Bill Belichick in Little League this weekend and decided it was a must that we find some professional athletes when they were in Little League for this mornings post.
We’ll play a little game today: See if you can find Blake Griffin, Jason Heyward, Michelle Wie, David Wright & B.J. Upton, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Matt Stafford & Clayton Kershaw, and more. If you can identify these guys— good for you.

It’s the sexy thing to say these days, but I really think the Pacers will push the Heat to AT LEAST six games. The Pacers are a good team. Not sure the Heat have really been challenged so far so if the Pacers can come out and hit them in the jaw they have a shot. Heat will win though. Lock city

The first of this classic series on Unathletic takes us to Mike Tyson’s post-fight interview. Tyrell Biggs got his butt kicked, but made $1.25 Million for getting his ass kicked.
Perhaps better than Tyson’s win was his post-fight interview. Clearly, Biggs was no match for Tyson the guy is laughing and making fun of him. Hilarious. ‘Making women gestures’
In preparation of the 20th Anniversary of ‘The Sandlot’, FOX is going buck wild with different promotions including screening the movie after Sunday’s Twins and Red Sox game. As part of the pre-promotion a few of the more famous characters from the cast showed up before the Twins game on Friday at Target Field to take a few pictures with some players. The result is a whole bunch of memories coming back about one of the greatest baseball movies of all time. [Continue Reading]
Is it me or does Ham Porter look exactly the same as he did twenty years ago. As a matter of fact, both guys look exactly how they’re suppose to look 20 years later. It’s quite incredible.
Gareth Bale collected possession in the last minute, he jinked inside, rolling the ball onto his left foot and unfurled a glorious shot into the far, top corner from 25 yards. Under normal circumstances, Bale’s goal, his 26th of a stellar season, would have been the cause for frenzied celebration. Not here. It did not matter. The victory propelled Tottenham to 72 points, a Premier League record for the club. They have finished in the top five for the fourth consecutive season. And they have qualified for Europe. There has been lots to like about Andre Villas-Boas’s debut season at White Hart Lane. Yet it rang hollow. The post-match lap of appreciation featured forced smiles and heavy hearts. None of it was not enough for the European qualification that they really wanted. [Continue Reading]
An amazing individual season that saw Tottenham fall short of a Champions League bid. Tottenham must do whatever it takes to retain Bale. He is the best young player in the game right now…. .I can see the big money clubs salivating.

It’s been almost nine years since the 2004 Boston Red Sox pulled off the most remarkable comeback in the history of postseason baseball to stun the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS and win the team’s first World Series title in 86 years. The stories of the so-called “idiots” have become something akin to baseball mythology — from the “Cowboy Up” rallying cry to the half-naked jacuzzi party sparked by Manny Ramirez to Curt Schilling’s famous bloody sock.
At the Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams Game at Frontier Field in Rochester, N.Y. on Saturday, Red Sox legend Pedro Martinez revealed one of his favorite stories from that team. “We took a shot of Mama Juana every single game, before the game,” Martinez said in an interview conducted in the dugout of the AL legends team, for whom Martinez pitched in Saturday’s exhibition game. “We call it Mama Juana — it’s made of roots, with latin rum.” [Continue Reading]
This isn’t as big of deal as it appears to be. The Red Sox were a wild bunch in 2004, but it worked for them. You would be hard-pressed to find a team with more characters on it than this team.
