There are a few more races coming up I plan on doing too. But 3k isn't too bad. Hell, girls cross country in high school ran 4k. Girls!

Joe (Philly): I loved the world cup, and am thinking about continuing to follow soccer through the English Premier League. How can I pick a team to root for and remain a somewhat-principled sports' fan when I know nothing about England?

SportsNation Bill Simmons: (2:40 PM ET ) Intriguing question, I have been wondering the same thing. I was thinking about just picking the team that Michael Davies hates the most, just for comedy's sake, but that's too easy. if anyone wants to make the case for an English premier team for me, email me. I might make the leap. Soccer's growing on me, you don't have to pay attention, it's easy to follow, no sideline reporters, no commercials, no annoying announcers, the crowds are fantastic ... there's a lot to like.

Brian Washington DC: I agree with you on the soccer "growing on me" thing, but what holds it back is that it is terrible to bet on. no?

SportsNation Bill Simmons: (2:46 PM ET ) Yes. it's the worst sport ever to wager on, it's like trying to figure out how to use HTML. They need to solve this. I actually wanted to bet on France last weekend and couldn't figure out how to do it.

Phil, picking an EPL team is easy. you can do pick by

2. The one with the coolest logo or craziest fans
3. Or you can never go wrong with rooting for Liverpool, the best team in the world.

The only thing is if you are rooting for Chelsea, you are rooting for the Yankees of the EPL, except they are funded by Russian oil money

Okay, so I've always had my reservations about internet dating or whatever you wanna call it, but what the hell, I'm stuck in the middle of a goddamn desert for 3 months or more, surrounded by about 10,000 dudes and maybe 75 girls, none of which are worth a second look, so I figured I'd take my chances. I'm not really at liberty to elaborate too much, but it's worth mentioning that it works out better than I hoped it would. It looks as though my booty call this weekend will be postponed though due to a 36,000 acre wildfire which has pretty much closed off all the roads out of this God-forsaken hellhole. Now for my words of encouragement; no matter how bad you think things are going, they could be worse- you could be living in 29 Palms.

Bobby P is a young coach with lots of energy and should have no problem getting top talent at UofL....on the offensive of end. He kind of reminds me of Hal Mumme only he can run the ball too...and a slightly better defense. Looks clean though and shouldn't land you guys on probation.

Brock on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 11:25 AM

Couple of comments:

1. That online RISK game will officially ruin my life, career, and socializing.

2. Never compare Mumme to Petrino, that's got to be the goofiest comparison of all time. Mumme had a couple of halfway decent offensive seasons because he had one or two really good players. Petrino has developed the most dominant offensive strategy in modern-day college football. As soon as he loads it with ultra-NFL types like USC does (which I don't know if UofL boosters have that kind of money - and then he would be like Mumme), then I pity those teams that play them, especially my lowly Bearcats.

3. Congrats Al Gore, you told us all something we didn't know, we're all gonna die... I was worried there for a minute that I was a Highlander. And yes, I'm speaking directly to Mr. Gore because he invented the internet and has it wired directly to his consciousness.

I agree with you Brock. You shouldn't compare Mumme to Petrino. I think Guy Morriss would be a better comparison.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 11:42 AM

I was comparing the too because they both only care about offense, which I believe is obvious because UofL's defense is bad.

douglas on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 11:45 AM

once mumme lost couch, he was worthless, so far luckily petrino has had ragone and now brohm, so he's always been blessed with a great QB. he probably will be able to land high-end recruits from now on b/c they'll always be in a january bowl b/c the big east is weak in football, plus w/ the new contract there's not too much of a threat of the coach jumping ship to bigger and better programs.

joe on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 11:46 AM

So I had the new 99 cent chicken sandwich at Wendy's. I give it a 6/10. The bun is terrible (same one from Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger), and you get a piece of iceberg lettuce on it with some mayo. The actually quality of the chicken wasn't too bad.

Overall, an incredibly boring sandwich. It might be good if you order it plain with some honey mustard to rub on it.

joe on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 2:09 PM

I rate it a little higher. For 99 cents it is fantastic.

you talking about the riverbats game? i might be up for it. it's around 5? how much to get in?

joe on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 2:22 PM

gates open at 5:30 and it is I think 6 bucks to get in

Brent on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 2:42 PM

$5 if you get the grass tickets, which is what I always do and usually sit wherever the hell I want.

Phil on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 2:43 PM

Joe - I felt the sandwich itself is probably a 4. I bumped it up to 6 for cost reasons.

I still don't know why Wendy's doesn't have Spicy Chicken Nuggets. They are sitting on a gold mine.

I just heard about the Reds move... its been a hot topic up here. I think it may pay off. The Reds have a solid replacement for Kearns in the outfield with Freel, and Clayton for Lopez is an even swap in my opinion. However, they racked up about 4 pitchers in the deal, so I think they got the best of it.

Not to justify the shooting someone for something petty like a litter fine, but usually its not the initial thing that pisses you off its the incident after the fact. For instance, when someone cuts me off in traffic that usually just pisses me off, its the middle finger followed by mean mugs and shouting words that sends me into a fire engine red rage that makes me want to make the motherfucker bite the curb...Im just sayin.

Green Baron on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 6:55 PM

Yah, but murder in a road rage carries 20 years max if you play your cards right, you'll be out in 10. Attempted murder on a police officer carries a life sentence. Getting pissed off so much for a $50 littering fine that you want to risk that? that's just fucking stupid. You kill a bad driver, and you did a civic service. I think you'd pass out of stupid court, and most likely real court too.

Bobby Flay has a new TV show on the Food Network, where he challenges different cooks/chefs to a cooking throwdown on the spot to see who can make the cooks/chefs signature dish better.

Pretty entertaining actually and if you love food it is a good watch. So far, he is 1-1. He won against the Chowder King but lost to some girl for a wedding cake (for the record, tonights show was his first wedding cake he ever made). If you don't know who Bobby Flay is....then bite me.

In just under two weeks, intel is releasing their new processor (Core 2 Duo). The 300.00 mid level chip out performs AMD's top of the line 1000.00 chip in 35 of 37 different benchmark test and consumes less power.

The prices will range from 180.00 up to 1,000 on release.

This processor will be perfect if you are into video editing, photoshop, programming, watching videos, vidoe encoding, gaming, watching porn, etc....

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 10:52 AM

That's okay, I am owning this kid I am playing against right now. It's on a 2 player game but in 4 turns I already own South America, Autralia, and I am 4 countries away from taking over Asia and the United States.

adrian on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 10:56 AM

Yeah

Gas prices on MSN are delayed by a lot. Filled up over 3 hours ago at a station for 2.99, MSN has it listed at 2.83, which is what it was yesterday.

Keith Bogans is back with the Magic making 2.5 million per year.

Whatever happened to Reece Gaines? He was a 1st rounder and I know Keith was a 2nd rounder and is making well on his opportunity.

joe on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 11:40 AM

Ben Wallace was undrafted, shit happens

Phil on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 11:47 AM

I like yesterdays headline in the paper:

Big blue not such a big deal to recruits

douglas on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 12:07 PM

tubby's never been a coach that's been as successful with top recruits as he has been with under the radar guys, he's builds a program, he doesn't like one or two year players that jump to the pros, with that being said, he always has a solid team on the floor every year, even if he is losing the "top" recruits to N. carolina, Duke, Kansas, or whoever. Fact of the matter, were any of those teams in the final four last year, kansas was on a fluke a couple years ago, and n. carolina won a couple years ago, but what happened to their team? It completely dismembered and they had a very down year last year, Kentucky had its first down year last year in a very long time. Duke's been flaming out ALOT the last several years, with early exits in the tournament, etc., all with the 'best' prospects.

joe on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 12:11 PM

I thought rondo, crawford and morris were all top recruits?

douglas on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 12:17 PM

they were, it was the #1 recruiting class in the country two years ago, but crawford was never going to be a one and done player, and he even said in that article 'look where that class got me.' prince was a top 5 recruit as well, but he never had any intention of leaving early, same with bogans.

joe on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 12:25 PM

#1 recruiting class in the nation lost inthe 2nd round of the tourney

douglas on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 12:59 PM

exactly

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 1:42 PM

Rondo, Morris, Crawford, and Ramel were actually all top recruits.

And during their first year we made it to the elite 8 and lost to Michigan State in the tourney trying to make the final 4, not the Sweet 16. We lost in the 2nd round this past year to UCONN, and the only thing I can say is how badly we missed Azubuike and I believe Tubby didn't realize KAZ was gonna jump well to be honest beceause he wasn't ready.

Green Baron on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:15 PM

We definitely need a foreign coach....or me, or Mike Ditka.

douglas on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:25 PM

i haven't taken my shit yet so I haven't read the mailbag, but the only reason simmons said he was enjoying soccer was b/c you could have it on in the background, not pay any attention to it, and stay completely up to the minute with the action b/c the announcers went nuts every time there was a goal. the only time you had to pay any attention was during the penalty shootouts, which is the stupidest way to determine a winner ever. After 15 innings in a baseball game, they don't have a home run contest to decide the winner, they don't throw footballs through tires to find a winner

Jerome on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:27 PM

footballs through tires to settle a tied game ... I love it!!! I'm writing into the NHL for that one ... Can you see a bunch of hosers on ice skates trying to throw a football?

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:35 PM

So I created another risk game. I am wes011 if anyone wants to play.

Brock on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:37 PM

Jerome, I don't think the NHL is going to care much about your football throwing contest.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:38 PM

Thanks for the news on Arena Isaac. I wanted him gone.

Brock on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:38 PM

It would be more appropriate for two guys to just fight to the death by using their skates as knives... that's what most people care about anyway.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:38 PM

Personally I want Portugal's coach. (He won a cup with Brazil)

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:39 PM

Brock up for Risk?

Brock on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:51 PM

Sure, what the hell

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 2:57 PM

make a game.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:05 PM

Alright Rommell let's play.

Brock on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:06 PM

I made a game. I'm Rommell.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:11 PM

Yeah I figured as much.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:25 PM

I just got slaughtered..whenver you were rolling 2 and 1 one defense i was rolling 3-1...so we would split. Fucking Germans....oh wait.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:42 PM

I have a feeling you are gonna win this one pretty quickly.

joe on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:44 PM

Marshall Tucker BAnd is playing 4th street tonight

Green Baron on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 3:55 PM

The commentators only go nuts if you're watching it on a foreign network. The English commentators are usually lost and say little if anything.

Brock on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 4:10 PM

Wes, he's fixed the chat option on the game.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 4:38 PM

You're turn!

Brock on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 4:56 PM

Ok, I played my turn, I'm back fulltime... I finished everything and the rain killed softball this weekend. Fuckin' rain.

Bigworm on Friday, July 14, 2006 at 6:30 PM

Philco - maybe you can make a link on the upper right hand side for the risk website. that would be fantastic.

Brent on Saturday, July 15, 2006 at 1:42 AM

Worked all day and night, had a few drinks at O'sheas and Im still running you pussies.

Bigworm on Saturday, July 15, 2006 at 2:07 AM
