In a recent ESPN Outside The Lines interview, 1975 Boston Red Sox World Series hero Bernie Carbo claimed that he tried to have Keith Hernandez’s “arms broken” a decade after his W.S. heroics.

Carbo’s response to […]
Major news out of the South Georgia city of Valdosta today, as 18-year-old former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback prospect Zach Mettenberger pleaded guilty in local County Superior Court to two charges of misdemeanor sexual battery stemming from a March 7 incident at a Remerton, Ga., bar.

21-year-old Rory McIlroy torched the Quail Hollow Championship field yesterday to win the PGA Tour stop with a final round 62. Like 18-year-old Japanese phenom Ryo Ishikawa, who shot 58 Sunday to win a Japan Tour event, McIlroy has heard the Tiger Woods comparisons over the years.
(Make that Rory’s formerly “quite shy” girlfriend Holly Sweeney) […]
Ben Roethlisberger’s extracurriculars in Milledgeville have been memorialized by rapper Eminem, who included a mention of the Steelers QB in a new song called “Despicable”.

Tiger Woods posted a blog entry today on his official website that gives his version of what he’s been up to since The Masters. It’s the first somewhat candid blog entry by Woods since his Thanksgiving car accident. (Designed to combat tabloid reports about his family’s activities?)
In the post, Woods addresses his strong language at […]
Mark Cuban was asked on Dan Patrick’s Direct TV show today by the host, “Better (off-field/court) image right now, the NFL or the NBA?”
Cuban said, “The NBA, no question. It’s non-stop with the NFL. I feel sorry for Roger Goodell. Every day it’s somebody different…” (audio)
Thankfully, Patrick interrupted Cuban’s remark at that point to provide […]
When we last saw Allen Iverson, he was spotted a month ago playing cards (photo below) at Atlanta’s new Wet Willies slushy drink bar location. Since then, multiple sources have told me that Iverson has become a regular at the bar, owned in part by NFL player Carlos Emmons.
(Not the first time A.I. has gotten […]
Carl Prine of the PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW has new information on the aftermath of the March 5 sexual assault accusation against Ben Roethlisberger at a Georgia bar that was not pursued by the local district attorney as a criminal case.

Today, thanks to the lawyer of the nightclub where Ben Roethlisberger allegedly sexually assaulted a woman, there was a lot of new information presented to the public discrediting the accuser in the case. Information that, if you examine the context of its release, looks increasingly dubious.
