Once again, Major League Baseball makes a dumb decision. This time, a report says the league nixed the Rangers' proposal of having Mavericks star (and NBA champion) Dirk Nowitzki throw out the first pitch before one of Texas' home games in the World Series. Oh, and who is throwing out the first pitch in St. Louis before Game 2? Someone who won a contest. (Thanks to Neil Turner, of Dallas, for the tip.)
Speaking Of Lame Decisions...
You'd think the Notre Dame Fighting Irish would spend their energy trying to turn around their football program and win something more impressive than the Sun Bowl, but that's not the case. Instead, the university is going after a Kansas high school -- which has been nicknamed the "Fighting Irish" since 1967 -- for using a leprechaun logo.
Brady, of Hudson, Wis., says, "My baby boy was born this year, just in time to see the Packers win the Super Bowl. As we all know, they are well on their way to another. As a life-long, die-hard Vikings fan, I'm facing a giant dilemma. My wife and her parents are HUGE Packers fans, season-ticket holders, and even have a Packers-themed bathroom. Yes, truly. Do I, as a father, let my son go that route without a fight? Or do I push him in the direction of the Minnesota (L.A.?) Vikings knowing full well it means a life of heartache? Maybe a girl would have been easier."

I think he's faking.
Montage Video Of The Day
This video has made the rounds this week. It's a compilation of various television "special episodes." My only criticism is that it needed more of this.
