1. How amazing is that the soccer team representing a country whose leader is a Holocaust denier (Iran) played its first game in Nuremberg?
2. While watching some of the World Cup action, I've decided that in most cases, two hours for a sporting event is perfect. Part of the charm of baseball is that a game could go on for hours and hours. There is nothing more tense than an important game that goes extra innings. However, I've seen way too many 9 inning games that go three and a half sluggish hours - in fact I think 50% of them are Orioles vs. Yankees games. How great is it that you know a game will be over about two hours after it started? Baseball games used to be much shorter years ago and I wish they were shorter today. I still like to blame Tony LaRussa.
3. If Roger Clemens isn't implicated in the next few months in this human growth hormone thing, I will change my blogger profile to one of these images at some point in 2006. You can hold me to that.
I think I might be sick.
Clemens and a shirtless Joe Perry!
This picture was the first image that appeared when I typed in "Roger Clemens steroids" into Google images.
I'd love it if Jeter were implicated but I think the most egregious thing he's probably done to enhance himself is to put in green eye contact lenses. I have no factual basis in making that claim but I'm sticking to it.
