Cards won their division and the WS a few years ago with what, 83 wins?

Yeah, I'd forgotten about that.  That was 2006, so that's now the unenviable record for lowest regular season wins for a World Series champion team.

But that's another good argument for abolishing divisions.   You wouldn't have weak division winners anymore.

And I'd be fine with ending interleague play too.

Awesome.

That said, Detroit has a great DL. You have to give the guy more than 2 games, and he's 1-1.

Naw... she just didnt like it... and kept making fun of the movie...

I guess the animations and such are a bit dated on newer tv's... but still great book... great story... very well made movie even with sting's craptastic acting.

I shouldn't make light of it... but I will anyway:

I didn't know Penn State was a Catholic school.

That Penn State/Jerry Sandusky scandal is incredible and disgusting.  The whole athletic staff needs to resign, including JoePa.

If what is being reported is true, they not only need to resign, but serve some time behind bars...

What i dont get... is how is JoePA being fired for a moral short coming but McQuery gets to keep his job... he actually saw sandusky assaulting a 10 year old. turned his back on the kid and went and told his boss...

Didn't he feel some semblance of human responsibility to step in help the child?

I do too.  Here's what I don't get.  McQueary reportedly told his father first.  Why in the HELL didn't his father say, "son, you've got to call the police"?  Then, when he told JoePa, why didn't Paterno call the cops?

This thing repeatedly fell through the cracks.  Unbelievable.

Its obvious lots of people failed to do the right thing... it is very unbelievable... but that fact that McQuery is getting a pass, when he could have himself stepped in and stopped the assault on a child... is in my view inexcusable... hes atleast as culpable as joepa

When did this story start to break?  I find it interesting that nothing was heard about this until after Joe Pa beat the Illini to become the winningest coach ever.  Did it in fact come out before that?  If not, the conspiracist in me questions whether it was held back because whoever spilled it thought Joe PA might be taken down by it and wanted him to get his record.

Oh, and Area 51 is real.

Skip holtz might find himself w/o a job... you got more talent up there... might wanna kick the tires on him.
