Sports Parody
Friday, January 31, 2003

interesting fact from ESPN:

There are two types of fans: Those who chant "Free AI" and those who'd like to "Fry AI." Here's a good story for the "Free" camp: As Tracy McGrady was complimented everywhere yesterday for offering his All-Star starting spot to Michael Jordan, MJ revealed last night that Iverson called him on the QT a week ago to offer up his All-Star starting spot.

Mascot Parody: Super Duper Super Bowl Preview by Greg Wyshynski at SportsFan Magazine. Great site, great writer. Check it out.

Some highlights from the Bucs on media day.

12:41 p.m. ET
Here's what Keyshawn had to say about people not understanding or liking him: "If you don't like Keyshawn Johnson, you've got a problem with yourself."

12:25 p.m. ET
MTV's guest reporter this year is singer/actress Mandy Moore, who is walking around in a Kurt Warner jersey that is five sizes too small. Uh, we believe Media Day just became Mandy Day.

12:08 p.m. ET
Of course, by now everyone knows that Gruden didn't arrive with the Bucs on Monday. Instead, he said he left Tampa at 4:30 a.m. on the Dallas Mavericks' private jet after spending Monday going over film and sleeping. Gruden seemed impressed with the flight. "It was quite a ride" said Gruden, smiling...

12:06 p.m. ET
Here's what Gruden had to say about leaving the Raiders: "In some ways, change is inevitable. A lot of that was out of control, honestly. Everything has worked out, so far. Hopefully, we can all continue to have a nice, happy life."

Sports Illustrated named their Top 100 Sports Books of All Time last month. I just finished The Last Shot by Darcy Frey (#70), recommended by a friend. Phenomenal book about trying to make it out of high school and into college on a basketball scholarship. "There ain't nothing in Coney Island for me no more!"

Clearly Newsworthy

REUTERS/David Gray: Russia's Anna Kournikova wears a patch on her back during her second-round match against Justine Hennin-Hardenne from Belgium at the Australian Open in Melbourne January 15, 2003. Kournikova has settled one of the ongoing debates at this year's Australian Open -- the fabled tattoo on her back does not exist. Speculation has been rife that the patch covered a tattoo. Kournikova on Monday said it was just a heat patch.

Chucky Don't Play
"We're not going to sit here and try to justify what happened two or three years ago, or what happened earlier this year," said Bucs coach Jon Gruden. "It's irrelevant now. We respect Philadelphia for what it has done this year, not in the past. What happened there before has no bearing." "We're going to get on the plane, and we're going to play them anywhere, play them anyplace. Whether it be in 'The Vet' or on the Walt Whitman Bridge, we're going to be there."

Clippers to Draft Iverson's Sperm with Second Pick in NBA Draft ::TF Redux::
LOS ANGELESóL.A. Clippers VP of Basketball Operations Elgin Baylor has confirmed reports that the team will draft the sperm of Philly 76ers guard and 2000-2001 NBA League MVP Allen Iverson with their #2 overall pick in next week's 2001 NBA Draft in New York City. Iverson's Sperm will be the youngest player(s) ever drafted in league history. Citing a trend towards an increasingly younger pool of lottery picks, Baylor stated: "This is definitely the right move for us at this time. We feel like we should get a head start on other teams, like the (Atlanta) Hawks." Atlanta had reported earlier in the day that they will draft several of Larry Johnson's illegitimate sons, who are now in grade school.

The Answer's Sperm will be injected into eggs donated to the Clippers by the WNBA's four-time champion Cynthia Cooper. Dr. Iminto Mitochondria, at Houston's Mercy Hospital, will be performing the test-tube and fertilization procedures. Darius Miles, the Clips 19-year-old phenom who currently is the youngest player taken with the hightest draft pick --at #3 in 2000, commented: "For reeeaall, I hope he's good at Playstation 2, cause Lamar (Odom) sucks. But I ain't changing no diapers, we'll leave that to Cherokee (Parks)."

This past year, the Clippers fielded the second youngest team in league history which included three starters who could not even legally purchase alcohol, making the average age of the team an astounding 21. Tomorrow, with the new addition, their average age will drop to 15. Upon hearing the news, Michael Jordan stated that he will begin working with a team of Welsh Geneticists to perfect 5 clones of himself to play for the Wizards in the 2016-2017 season. It is also rumored that MJ may again come out of retirement that year to play with himself(ves). NBA President David Stern, who has unsuccessfully pleaded with the NBA Players Association to set age restrictions on players entering the Draft, has, in response to the recent developments, asked for his binky.

What to Read
I can't wait for this game. Knicks looking good...looking real good. Have I mentioned how much I hate all-star voting? I know I have. Vince, Jordan, and Dikembe should stay home. Vince hasn't been playing this season! Why don't you just vote for Dr.J you fools!

Gints Coulda Woulda Shoulda Had One More Play
N.F.L. Admits Error, Too Late for Giants: The Giants should have had one more play to save themselves from the second-worst collapse in league playoff history.
Holder Could Have Called a Timeout: Giants Coach Jim Fassel believes his holder should have called a timeout after New York's field-goal attempt was botched at the end of Sunday's playoff game with the 49ers.

Statement on last play of Giants-49ers game:
*Tam Hopkins, No. 65, of the Giants lined up as the left guard and was illegally downfield on the pass attempt. The three flags thrown on this play were for this penalty.
*Guard Rich Seubert, No. 69, was an eligible receiver on Giants field-goal attempts. This was reported to the officiating crew prior to the game as is routinely done before every game.
*49ers defensive end Chike Okeafor interfered with Seubert downfield when he was attempting to catch Giants holder Matt Allen's pass. This defensive pass-interference penalty against the 49ers was not called. If defensive pass interference had been called, there would have been offsetting penalties (ineligible receiver against the Giants and pass interference against the 49ers) with the down replayed at the original line of scrimmage, the San Francisco 23-yard line. Although time had expired, a game cannot end with offsetting penalties. Thus, the game would have been extended by one untimed down.
*One additional note on the play: Allen did not have the option of spiking the ball to stop the clock, which only can be done by taking a hand-to-hand snap directly from the center. If Allen had spiked the ball, it would have been a penalty for intentionally grounding the ball and the game would have ended due to a 10-second runoff of the clock. (note: but he could've thrown it out of bounds or called a time-out)

Crazy Wild Card Weekend Climaxes With Spectacular 49er Comeback
You could see it coming with each 49er drive in the 2nd half. It was like the boulder rollling through the cave after Indy in Raiders except this time Indy gets crushed. The Giants were completely helpless against the no huddle offense. I hear Sehorn is in the hospital getting treated for 3rd degree burns. T.O. laughed in the face of the Giants secondary until they completely lost their minds. Hey Fassel, you have three minutes left in the game, your offense has some momentum, you know your field goal kicker sucks, and its 4th and 1. Whatcha gonna do? Did you not see how the 49ers beat Dallas? The 49ers were salivating over the opportunity to do it again. The 49ers would still have been able to tie the game with a TD even if you made the FG. Are you playing to win or to not lose? Its the playoffs. Show some gumption. I won't even start talking about the absurdity of the last play of the game.

Cleveland at Pittsburgh. The Rust Belt Super Bowl. Another insane game. I'm picturing Don Cheadle doing a commerical for that one already. Cheadle going "One second. All the Browns needed was one second for a FG try." as Andre King stumbles desperately reaching to get out of bounds to kill the clock. The Cardiac Kids had finshed their season like only they could. Well, it is really a moot point who won this game because...

The Jets are going to the Super Bowl. The lesson they tought the Colts on Saturday was a thing of beauty (unless you're a Colts fan). Their offense is running with the precision, efficiency and power of a fine german automobile. Their defense is attacking like a starving pitbull. Look for Pennington to make mince meat out of a depleted Raiders secondary.

Oh wait a second. There was a undefeated playoff streak at Lambeau? Packers never ever ever lost there in the playoffs? They were playing a dome team? The dome team's young QB would feel privleged just to be playing there against one of the best QBs of all-time right? Hmmmmmm....think there might be a slight chance the Pack believed their own hype? You think these young bucks from the ATL might have had something to prove to a world full of doubters? I give the Falcons props. Nothing like making everyone shut the Fuck up.
