Patroits, Giants in the Super Bowl. Can New England have a perfect season?

Once again the New England Patriots are in the Super Bowl.This time they are going against Eli Manning and the New York Giants.

Not only is the Championship at stake, so is their shot at a perfect 19-0 season. Can they do the impossible on Feb 3rd? Can they be the first team to have a perfect season, even in the playoffs? Or will the Giants hand them their butts on a plate, like they did to Green Bay?

Stayed tuned! Same Super Bowl time, New S

Track star Marion Jones gets jail time. Shows that lying and steroid use doesn't pay

Once again an athlete who has taken steroids is in trouble. Once again, yawn.

This time Marion Jones was sentenced to six months in jail for lying about taking steroids. Not only had she lied about taking drugs, but she also had to give back the five medals that she won in Sydney.

My question is this, what happened to the integrity of athletes.? It's not just baseball that has the steroid cheaters, now it's the Olympics too. What happened to fair play? What happened to working hard for a goal? What happened to excelling at a sport by sacrificing years to achieve a dream? Now all athletes have to do to achieve greatness is swallow pills in a bottle.

Is the lust of fame, fortune and glory are more important than ethics? What message does this send to the young? That in order to win at life you have to cheat? Does this show that if you are not famous or on the top that you don't matter?

If the Olympics and pro sports wants to clean their act, they must first: impose stiffer penalties on the athletes who take them. In other words make them an example. Second: don't let trainers and coaches have accessibility to steroids. In other make it tougher for trainers to give athletes drugs. Third: have a strong policy that has some teeth to it, and better drugs tests. And fourth: stronger education about the issue.

By taking action, instead of reacting, maybe sports can get back to what it should be. Athletes excelling without drugs.

Pistons blow out Spurs, where was this team during the last two games

Once again the Pistons proved that they can win important games. After they have been defeated by both Boston and Dallas in the previous two games, they defeated the San Antonio Spurs by the score 90-80.

My question is this. What took the the Pistons so long to win a game and why can't this team be consistent in playing? Maybe they needed this mini slump to get their sync back. Maybe they should put Lindsey Hunter on the court more often. Maybe they should keep Rasheed Wallace from fouling out, like he usually does.

I'm well aware that the Pistons can't win every game, but at least they can try not to blow leads when they have them. Hopefully they not lose steam like they do in the second half and be the the team that we know that they are. The best team in the NBA.

Declaw those Bobcats!!
