Sheesh . We knew Larry Bowa had a proclivity to speak his mind, but he really doesn't hold back. He was asked recently about new Sox pitcher Brad Penny '€” the two were together in Los Angeles '€” and he let fly. Check out the story here . Yikes. "Put that on the (expletive) dot-com."

It's NBA All-Star Weekend, which used to bring one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year '€” the slam dunk contest . Back in the day, it was a battle. Dwight Howard brought back some of the old-school flavor and drama last year, but on the whole, it's degenerated into a forgettable...

After the Red Sox acquired him from the Indians in mid-August, he went 4-2 with a 4.78 ERA, helping to stabilize a final rotation spot that had been leaking wins amidst Clay Buchholz ' struggles.

A-Rod, just days before his steroid admission. Who has the best Jewish linebackers in the NFL? New England! For those of you still doubting that Favre's retirement is for real this time, check out this story. That would appear to clinch it '€” our long national nightmare has come to an end. Not...
