Sammy has recently been outted on the infamous steriods list. I want to touch on something else, but I’ll come back to the list itself.

Who of you in the darkest recesses of your mind can say that you did think that Slammin Sammy was totally clean? Honestly, if Ken Griffey Jr. and Albert “the Machine” Pujols’ names are on that list, I wouldn’t even be surprised at this point. A-Rod, Manny, and Sammy have the steriods cloud hanging over their head.

Now about the list itself. Obviously, there’s a leak and it needs to be plugged. These players willingly tested themselves with the belief that it would be kept confidential. ESPN analysts think the leak is in the US government. That presents a whole new set of problems. I doubt MLB would do this to themselves so they can be successfully ruled out.

The question is how do you root out the leak? I have no idea.

Stallworth vs. Vick

Posted: June 17, 2009 in NFL, sports opinion

ESPN is doing its damndest to distinguish between the punishment that each of them received. Stank-0 cannot see the connection no matter how hard the “legal analysts” try to get me to buy it. ESPN threw out the rationale that the Justice Dept thought that Vick wasn’t being forthcoming. Show me some proof that he wasn’t helpful and Stank-0 will buy that one. Stallworth killed a human being and Vick killed an animal. You can dress it up all you want but that’s the facts.

As much as Stank-0 loves pets (snakes, spiders, fish, dogs, cats, etc.) they will never ever ever EVER EVAR in Stank-0’s eye be equal to a human being. You can flame Stank-0 in the comments all you want, Stank-0’s opinion ain’t changing. Not now, not never.

Vick did Fed time (Ft. Leavenworth is serious business) and Stallworth got 30 days minus 6 days for time served. Again human being and a large number of dogs…animals.

Superfight fall!

The Mayweather-Marquez bout has been pushed back because Money injured his ribs training, so that bout will be rescheduled most likely in the early to late fall. I think Floyd is training too hard in anticipation of gettin Pacquiao next. Mayweather is defensive and needs to be all the way hunnid for this fight.

The other fight is Pacquiao-Cotto. This will be the better of the two superfights. Pacman and Cotto are very offensive fighters. Cotto doesn’t clutch and he’s like the 2nd coming of Gatti with more skill. I’ll let Sportaphile, another good site, lay out the strategy. Chuck is more up on his boxing grizzy than I am.

This fight is gonna be one of the most exciting things we see all year
because their styles are very suited for each other. Manny is a fast
offensive fighter, Miguel is all-heart and never clenches his opponent.
Team Pacquiao made a VERY smart move by targeting Cotto because:

1. His defense is mediocre. Cotto has been put on his @ss and rocked
PLENTY of times, this plays into Manny’s hands.
2. Cotto is relatively slow, he doesn’t wow anyone with his hand
speed.

That’s some expert analysis right there. Go read the rest, here. I might have to find a TV or bar to watch one or both fights.
