Can anything be learned from watching Ron Jeremy in action?
Have a question or opinion for Pete? He might answer/address it in his mailbag.
It's the first Friday of the month, which means it's time for the all-reader-submission edition. Without further ado:
1. Perhaps the English Premiership should actually encourage its players to incorporate habitual Internet porn viewing into their training regimens. Really now, where else can players better learn the fine arts of exaggerated wailings, ultra-quick recoveries, and horrific hairstyles? -- Michael, Indialantic, Fla.
2. Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn is reportedly being considered to star in the movie Win One for the Gipper, which will be produced by independent filmmaker Roger Corman. Corman better make sure to cast the likes of Stanford and Navy opposite Quinn if he expects him to be successful. -- Colin, Raleigh, N.C.
3. Major League Baseball has announced plans to stage regular-season games in China. Makes sense, at least they can save millions on souvenir shipping costs. -- Janice, Palo Alto, Calif.
4. As reported Tuesday in the 10 Spot, St. Louis not only beat Detroit in the World Series but also edged it out as America's most dangerous city. The ranking, which gives more weight to gun-related violence, has been called into question since St. Louis doesn't even have an NBA franchise. -- Rick, Thornhill, Canada
5. The Russian hockey federation is considering suing the NHL in American courts over the Evgeni Malkin affair. Apparently Russia's version of the late, great Johnnie Cochrane is already preparing his opening statement to the jurors: "If Evgeni says nyet, you owe us a debt." -- Glenn, Toronto
6. The University of Kansas' basketball team was recently placed on probation due to infractions committed under the supposedly watchful eye of current UNC coach Roy Williams. Asked about the infractions, Williams responded, "I don't give a s--- about Kansas right now." -- Jennifer, Asheville, N.C.
7. After a week of Kenny Rogers related one-liners, 10 Spot readers are getting a little restless. To satisfy them, Pete has announced he plans on using the only other kind of comedy he can fake -- Barry Bonds-related one-liners. -- Jay, Franklin, Mich.
8. A few sportswriters are continuing to ask commissioner Bud Selig to not award St Louis the 2009 All-Star Game because of what they perceive as Busch Stadium's sub-standard and tiny press box. They insist this is the worst thing to happen to a sportswriter since Oscar had to live with Felix. -- Eric, St. Charles, Mo.
9. While sports fans and writers continue to debate the Miami/FIU brawl and the punishment or lack thereof, there has been at least one positive result -- the Bengals have already managed to fill their entire 2007 draft board. -- Dave, Burien, Wash.
10. Emphasizing the differences between his style and Larry Brown's, Knicks coach Isiah Thomas said he has his own playbook, with elements borrowed from his days with Bob Knight at Indiana University and the "Bad Boy" Pistons. Expect the Knicks to throw chairs at their opponents instead of the referees. -- Paul, Westfield, N.J.
