Random Jotting

If you looked at what the Cubs schedule was coming out of the All Star Break, you’d probably be somewhat pleased with their record. You figured that they had to win at least 6 of the first eight and that one win in St. Louis was good enough. So, a 7-4 start was a good start – which is just what they did. The reality is that, at this point in the season, 8-3 was needed given the competition. And, when you look at the injuries racking St. Loser right now, 9-2 was realistic. This team is not off to as good a start as you would like to see.

The Tribune says that Kerry Wood has "chafed at the idea of being used out of the bullpen." Imagine the chafing if he weren’t making the bux his is now and had to wear Toughskins.

So, Chicago Bears fans have their hopes up this year because Rex Grossman is ready to be the QB? Color me skeptical when someone tells me the season rests on the arm of an oft-injured QB who has 6 career starts in his 2 years in the league.

What's going on in the NFL that every single first round draft pick is unsigned? There must be something in the collective bargaining agreement that the agents are trying to negotiate around.

Lance Armstrong is not the most dominating individual in any sport in history. While what Lance has done is truly sensational, the title of most dominant individual in sports history is an honor that goes to Dan Gable. He was undefeated in 64 prep matches, and was 118-1 at Iowa State. His only defeat came in the NCAA finals his senior year. He won titles at the 1971 Pan American Games, the 1972 Tbilisi Tournament and the 1971 World Championships. He won six Midlands Open championships, a gold medal at the 1972 Summer Olympics without surrendering a point to any of his opponents.

After mopping up on the mat, Gable went on to coach the Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling to a NCAA record 9 consecutive national titles.

Lance Armstrong and 7 Tour de France wins in a row? Phsaw!
