Fox Sports has managed a new low in tastelessness. To preface my remarks, let me say that this is not a political attack as it seems (although I haven't kept up with corporate 'mergerdom') that MSN (parent company to the progressive/liberal leaning network MSNBC) is affiliated with the right wing Fox network to produce content for their website. Still, it's called Fox Sports and presumably Fox's editors have control over content.

Back to the tastelessness.

The latest low comes in the form of a story (link posted here) involving an NFL player who, along with his girlfriend, a cheerleader, was attacked by a former boyfriend where they were pistol whipped and the player had to jump from a second story window to save his life. A truly horrible home invasion! But apparently that wasn't "sexy" enough of a story for Fox as they decided to embed photo essays of other NFL cheerleaders performing on the field as well as trampolines. It reminds me of that line in the song, Everything Zen by Bush ...There's no sex in your violence." At Fox Sports I guess they've taken that mantra to heart and are determined to turn tragedy into soft core porn.

According to Jezebel.com, "Natalie Randolph, former wide receiver for the D.C. Divas women's pro football team, has been named the head football coach at Calvin Coolidge Senior High School. She is the only woman to hold that job in the entire United States."

"I hate shaking hands," she said at the time, "because they walk right past me and don't realize I'm a coach."

Wow, this is incredible! I attended a WNBA game and was amazed at not only the talent but excitement! I was highly disappointed with the attendance. I feel Men's sports are idolized, while women are seen as "inexperienced" or "inadequate" to perform the same as the boys, it's really sad and shows ignorance.

Lawrence Wilson, Randolph's attorney, says he "would expect some type of hesitancy about having a female coach, but I haven't seen it."

According to Salon.com, " You can now play Tiger's Transgressions, wherein the object is to help Tiger knock out blabbermouth "hos" with "well-timed" drives before they reach a news van." The crazy thing is many people are profiting from the main's indiscretion. There is porn in the making and the game is something extra to add to the craziness that is Tiger's Transgressions.

Don't forget the infamous SLOW JAM.... Let's just say he'll never forget his actions.

I watched the 60 minutes interview of Michael Vick last night and I must say I was moved.

Oh, not moved in the way you might think. Its not a matter of whether or not I believe he is sincere in his apology or his desire to make amends for the horrible dog fighting episode. Or that I was particularly excited about his recent signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. I believe that whether or not he means what he says is something that will take time to figure out. And even then some people will judge him by the wrong he committed.

That's actually the thing that moved me...

DALLAS, Texas - I'm a confessed and incurable New York Yankee fan.

Grew up on the team in the 1950s and 60s when they aired every weekend on CBS-TV here in Dallas, back before we had a team of our own.

Mantle was my favorite.

Nothing much better than a Yankees-Dodgers World Series.

Just remembering those good days for baseball and for a kid growing up dreaming of swinging for the fence!

Once again its football season!

There's lots of serious stuff to talk about, but in the 'white noise' of all the news about President Clinton's rescue mission, health care legislation and the shooting in Pennsylvania, I heard something that caught my attention. Eli Manning, quarterback for the New York Giants, was offered and was expected to sign a new contract for $97 million, making him the highest paid player in the National Football League. Trivial against the backdrop of all of the serious news out there, but what can I say? It caught my attention...

Detroit is not my favorite city, and the Pistons were never my favorite NBA team, but years ago, Dave Bing was one of my favorite basketball superstars. Dave Bing is now mayor of Detroit!

Detroit Pistons great and political newcomer Dave Bing made a dramatic political debut Tuesday, riding a platform as a change agent to a come-from-behind upset of Mayor Kenneth Cockrel Jr.

With light turnout, Bing outlasted Cockrel, the son of a political icon, by 52-48 percent. Bing serves until year's end and should take office in about a week once the results are certified by the Board of Canvassers. Cockrel returns to lead the council, a post he held before becoming mayor in September when Kwame Kilpatrick resigned and went to jail.

While looking through some blogs today, I ran across this piece of garbage.

Take a look at it, and read my thoughts after the jump.

Haven't we really always known this?

Maybe we're simply "too smart" for our own good and that of our kids.

Several years ago, I coached a co-ed baseball team of 4th and 5th graders in the Texas Rangers' Rookie League. We played about 20 games during June each year. These kids had never played baseball.

I've said it before on this page: I love reading Rick Reilly. For years, I read Reilly's back page essay in every issue of Sports Illustrated.

Now that Reilly is at ESPN, I read the back page of ESPN The Magazine. Take a few moments to read Reilly on John Elway, All-Pro quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

Ellway comes across in the incident Reilly describes as much more than a role model.
