A unique take on sports news, updated several times throughout the day.
Summer's so close you can taste it
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has apologized for his comments on a radio show Wednesday that the Cincinnati police were "profiling" his players. Hey, he shouldn't back off now; he was absolutely right. It's about time someone called out the police for paying extra attention to criminals.
More ammunition for angry LSU fans: Now comes news that new Alabama coach Nick Saban may have made illegal contact with recruits. While it sounds like one of those much-more-smoke-than-fire stories, Tiger fans still stinging from Saban's decision to alight at their SEC rivals after hightailing it from the Dolphins have yet another reason (beyond Coonass-gate) to breathe fire before Nov. 3's LSU-Alabama game. Tiger Bait! Tiger Bait!
Video clip of the day: How closely do athletes follow their own stats? Judging by the above video, the "U" trio of Clinton Portis, Willis McGahee and Edgerrin James know them quite well, while Fred Taylor hasn't spent as much time memorizing the back of his bubblegum card. This footage appears to have been shot in the run-up to Super Bowl XLI; the players receive free phones for answering trivia questions about themselves. We especially enjoyed when Portis asks, "You sure I can't get two of these?" Maybe the second one's for his dog; hey, that would be his personal business, anyway. (Via You Been Blinded.)

Jeez...this new blog format is really aging Mr. 10 Spot. He looks about 10 years older. What's that? Oh...he just took off his baseball cap. Sorry.
BRING BACK THE HAT!!!!!!!!!!!!
no seriously I miss the hat.
I want more hat.
Besides the glare from your melon makes it hard to read the top of the 10 Spot - it's almost as bad as the glare from my own dome.
plus the hat looked snazzy.
But I thought he wasn't going to be the coach at Alabama.
I'm still wondering who the new guy is writing the 10 Spot Blog.
You're going to Shea? Hah that means you're stuck in NY. Us giant fans out here on the west coast will have a beautiful weekend (without having to deal with a stadium full of New Yorkers) rooting for Bonds and the Giants to beat a team far more obnoxious than Bonds on his worst day.
My mistake. The giants are playing the Rockies this weekend
not the Mets.
Love the new format-miss the old hat, will it appear on the next list of bad free agent signings?
I miss the original 10 spot
Your picture used to be cute but now you look kind of geeky!
Did Nick Saban steal your hat?
Fortuntely (except for the BCS) games in the SEC are decided on the field.
Can't wait until the next LSU victory over those players from Tuscloosa waiting for a coach of the stature of Bear Bryant.
