James decides to skip the voluntary off-season workouts with the Colts but says that he's misunderstood, blah, blah, blah. James has a child out of wedlock and states that he has no intention of getting married, blah, blah, blah. James says he's got to keep it real, blah, blah, blah. James says he's contemplating retirement early, blah, blah, blah. Wow, thanks for such an insightful angle on yet another young athlete who's helping to kill my interest in professional sports.

Unlike many of us who get sucked up in the daily grind and forget the reason why we actually work, James clearly understands work's purpose: to reach retirement. God bless him for realizing that his goal is only two or three years away. May he become the eternal tourist.

The Jury Has Spoken
Whom would you rather have (INSIDE THE NHL, June 11), Alex Tanguay or Scott Gomez? Let's see, I think I'll take the guy who scores crucial goals in Games 6 and 7 of the Stanley Cup finals over the player who hurts his team with costly mistakes in Games 6 and 7. The verdict: Tanguay, the guy kissing the cup on center ice.
