"She [Sotomayor] ended a long baseball strike that year, briskly ruling against the owners in favor of the players. The owners were trying to subvert the labor system, she said, and the strike had “placed the entire concept of collective bargaining on trial.”
After play resumed, The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote that by saving the season, Judge Sotomayor joined forever the ranks of Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson and Ted Williams. The Chicago Sun-Times said she “delivered a wicked fastball” to baseball owners and emerged as one of the most inspiring figures in the history of the sport.

What an ignorant clown!
He's just too dumb to know any better. Probably busy dogfighting or shooting craps that day. Typical...

How did you feel about the Team aspect of it?
Now, of course, I gotta ask you about that exchange with Simeon Rice. When you were first introduced, I thought, "Damn, this show isn't fucking around anymore--that's a big Joe right there. And then Simeon Rice came out, and it really drove home how big he is.
So, when you two were wrestling, was there a moment when you thought, "Whoa, this dude is strong." I know you are a professional trainer, so you are used to working with strong people, but was Rice like anyone else in your experience?

Oh, and it should be noted that Reusse has a problem with the very term "disc golf". It's Frisbee Golf, dammit. Except (as Reusse implicitly acknowledges later in his column when he mentions Innova discs) Frisbee is a brand name. Discs are not all made by Frisbee, especially the ones used for disc golf.
And it wouldn't be Fatty Patty if he didn't use the occasion to knock soccer, for no fucking reason at all. Calling it "disc golf" you see, isn't about having an accurate name--it is to separate the elitist players from the riff-raff, Blue-Collar, all American Joes that Reusse represents: "That's the name the aficionados have given to Frisbee golf -- much like American soccer weenies refer to futbol."
Oh, fuck you, Patrick. Soccer is called Futbol or football everywhere in the world--because it is played with the feet. How could that be any simpler? Do you not like it because it sounds too much like America Football, a game so poorly named that the only people who use their feet in contact with the ball are the punter and place kicker? How fucked tired is that supposed riposte? People playing with discs aren't going to hurt anyone. People calling them discs aren't going to hurt anyone. People who call soccer "futbol" aren't going to hurt anyone. Responding to imaginary threats against his lifestyle--that's what Patrick Reusse does best. Because that is all he ever does.

"Other than ESPN annexing Winter Park, where's the downside?"
I only have this add: Dear Minnesota Viking fans. You are a sad bunch. But do you really think you will feel good about a Super Bowl that is won by Brett Favre? Do you? Really ask yourselves that. I bet you won't.
You'll be sullied. Deep in your hearts.
