The Knicks have signed free-agent small forward Lee Nailon, who left New Orleans because he felt, in part, that there wouldn't be enough minutes behind Jamal Mashburn, George Lynch and Stacey Augmon. There's also a logjam in New York, but one league source has told Insider that the Knicks told Nailon they are "confident" they're making progress on trading Spree.

D-Rays Go All Out To Woo Sweet Lou
TwistedFans Butch Rogaine has reported, that among one of the concessions being made is that the Devil Rays uniforms will include pinstripes with an interlocking N' and Y'. While the AP, via ESPN, has reported that the Rays have given the M's their best player in return. Maybe I'm wrong, but didnt Winn hit around .150 in the second half. Good job D-Rays.





Another championship, another correct prediction.
Asked by friends and foes alike before each year's playoffs start, myself and fellow prognosticators seem to always fail to correctly predict the eventual champion. Yankees and Lakers runs excluded. I am now on a roll having picked seemingly improbable eventual winners to take the banners in the 2002 Super Bowl and World Series, thanks to Adam Vinatieri's miraculous field goal kicking and the Angels rally monkey. Also, for any skeptics out there I'd be happy to provide a copy of my winning stub from the Bellagio casino in Vegas or emails confirming my picks in advance of the playoffs.

J.T. Snow Apologizes After Incident With Presumedly Crazed Fan
Snow apologized to manager Dusty Baker and fellow team-mates after he intercepted and subdued, who he believed to be, a crazed Giants fan about to attack the Anaheim Angels catcher. The fan turned out to be none other than team batboy and son of manager Dusty Baker. "I didn't realize who it was, all I saw was a maniac wielding a bat standing in front of Molina and all I could think about was I couldn't let what happened in Kansas City (to Tom Gamboa) by those shirtles fans happen here." Snow said in a prepared statement. Snow had no comment when later asked whether he noticed that the attacker was a 3 foot 3 years old in a Giants uniform and warmup jacket.

Reel Life: 'Fight Club'
I've never read one of Jeff Merron's Reel Life before, but I was suckered in because it was about one of my favorite films. Anyway he basically does a comparison of events, dialogues or allusions in the film ("Reel Life") vs. their reference point ("Real Life"). Despite the fact that I already knew much of what he offered because it was on the DVD commentary, I nevertheless enjoyed those fresh morsels he did have to offer and liked the concept on the whole. Now as to what this is doing on a sports site, is another question.

Sports Blog Logs
Apparently, everyone used to come to twistedfans.com via Google for the nude athletes (#9), but now everyone is looking for the video of Tom Gamboa getting his ass beat by a shirtless father and son (#1) (see left nav bar). Also, despite originally being titled TwistedFans II: Sports Blahger (who the hell is gonna type that), this site is now ranked #5 for Sport Blog.

OK, this has nothing to do with Sports but I was on the train today and the guy across from me started talking out loud to noone in particular, as is common on the subways of NYC, but what was interesting was how his train of thought was very organized and it made me think that this crazy person, opening and closing his knife while spewing death threats, was not that different than a blog, except he doesn't get to sit in front of his computer in his underwear at 3 a.m. and I couldn't just click-thru.





Baseball's Most Memorable Moments
I like the Donk's baseball posts. Anyway, he may have the best non-sports sports blog that I've read. What I don't understand though is how he got so upset with Rose 4,192 being voted ahead of so many other more memorable moments. It's true that this moment amounts to as little as Emmitt breaking Payton's rushing record, but what incites me even more is that Cal Ripken's bullshit games played mark (don't call it ironman, there's only one ironman - Lou Gehrig) is the MOST MEMORABLE???? For me, in my lifetime, it's Big Mac breaking 61. Ripken is a subpar player who limped in and out of the lineup for a decade. He should not even be mentioned in the same breath as Gehrig. Another memorable moment for me is when I attended a Yankees game in the brand new Camden Yards and screamed for the Yankees pitchers to bean that piece of shit Oriole in the head for 9 innings so he'd never make it to Gehrig's ironman mark.

They Will Make You Famous
From SFM: "A little over a month after two fans beat up a coach on the field, the media laughs off two more incidents involving fans on the wrong side of the stands. SFM columnist Greg Wyshynski gives his take on how the sports media is creating a monster."





Are the World Series Baseballs Juiced?
Is there a conspiracy to make the baseballs used in the World Series harder, to produce more offense. Al Levine, left off the Angels World Series roster, was looking for ways to fill his time during game 2, incidentally he stumbled upon two baseballs, one with the gold World Series logo stamped on it and one with blue lettering from the regular season and playoffs. Mr Levine then proceeded, with a Ginsu knife, to chop them both down the middle. "When I cut them open, one was easier, definitely," Levine said. "The World Series ball was a lot tougher to get through." Click here if you're not registered with NYT and want to read more about this subject.





Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss applauded his ex-teammate's return to the league: "I love it!" Moss said. "And I think a lot of football teams he's been making comments about will love it, too."

--what the f**? that sounds like a double entendre, a little subconscious jab at carter?

Sprewell sues Post for $40 million
Isn't it weird that Spree, Kent and Griese all used the same story? It seems that Sprewell did not injure his hand by hitting a wall after throwing a punch at a man whose girlfriend vomited on his yacht, but rather after Sprewell fell on the yacht.

NFL will not tolerate any more autograph antics despite that what "T.O. did was funny, original, and cool as shit." Thanks to dam hor for the link and quote.

from my favorite source: why LaRussa cost the Cards game 5 and a searchable baseball database with custom queries that lets you find individual seasons or careers based on the criteria you enter, in any of several dozen categories. Click here for some examples.

Please email us any interesting searches that you perform and the results as I will be compiling a list of the strangest statistics found for a future TwistedFans article.

Griese: Not the First Time He's Fallen

1. QB knocked out after fall in driveway -- Denver Broncos quarterback Brian Griese received seven stitches after falling and knocking himself unconscious in the driveway of teammate Terrell Davis' home. The Rocky Mountain News, citing an article in ESPN the Magazine, reports that QB Brian Griese's fall at the house of teammate Terrell Davis involved alcohol. Though RB Mike Anderson says Griese "just tripped," LB Keith Burns said Griese "had a little too much to drink," and an anonymous quote described Griese as "plastered"

2. Doggone it! Griese hurt tripping over pooch.... or so he says.

Instead of switching QB's every year, Bengals are now switching QB's every week. A six-year veteran, Kitna went public with his frustrations early this week, charging that Cincinnati officials had "created a monster" with a revolving door policy at the quarterback position. He urged the coaches to choose a starter and stick with him and even suggested that Smith, the third overall choice in the 1999 draft, be permitted to finish the year.

what a joke!





This is great -- Schilling Slams Sammy
