I Don't Intend on Making This All About Sports,

But there were a couple of items in sports news today that I thought were noteworthy here.

One: Steve McNair, the quarterback for the Titans, tried to go to the Titans' building to work out, and he was asked to leave. Now while he may not be the greatest QB anymore, there was a time when this man was one of the best in the game, and to not even let the man into your building after he has been such a great force on your team just seems mean on the part of the team. That's like not letting Mrs. Butterworth and Aunt Jemima back into the syrup factory to share their delicious sweetness because they were getting too old. However, even this is more classy than

Two: San Diego fans try to get the juice to Barry Bonds more quickly than he could have gotten it to himself. The fans at the game last night threw a syringe, minus the actual needle, onto the field near Bonds as he was walking by. Now Bonds may be the most hated man in baseball since Ty Cobb, but is that any reason for us to encourage his alleged steroid habit? If you are going to be mean, at least be helpful. Why not throw some literature for Drug Addicts Anonymous? At least then it would be more likely that he would get clean. This brings me to

Three: San Diego won. This means that they are undefeated so far this year. Now, you may argue that they have also only played one game, but at that point I would poke you in the throat with my index and middle fingers and tell you that you had only played one game, and that you had just lost, because I'm violent like that.

Let the jubilation commence.

A.C., I drink juice all the time. It's not a drug. It's actually good for you. It's usually fruit, sometimes vegetables, in liquid form. No syringes involved. Check your facts guy.
