Random Quote

Could that Brady/Patriots window, just like the Celtics, be closed for good?

The colossal second-coming of Joe Montana, once a perfect 10-0 and then 14-2 in the postseason, needed a Tim Tebow tumble to reality and a choke for the ages by Baltimore’s Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff — just to pick up a couple playoff wins.

    I think the SEC will really want to make an example out of Cuban. If the trade went down in 2004, you can be sure that they (the SEC) have their ducks lined up against him. That’s four years of evidence-gathering.

    The Garnett suspension is one of the most pathetic moves I’ve ever seen by any organization. I am speechless.
