    I didn't realize Masback was a Nike employee, so a disclosure would seem appropriate to those who don't know. But what gets me about Masback is he's obviously a smart person and had a strong running...

    51.45 to 51.36 over 6 weeks doesn't seem like a steep improvement to me. Felix won't be near under 51 in another month. And I'm assuming they're pretty happy with where she's at a year out from her...

    my apologies - I/they should have at a minimum at least added 'western' to the statement - my only intent was to highlight another example of crazy things people do in the name of 'an accomplishment'.

    When I saw him he had an arrow quiver full of drum sticks. As sticks broke, he'd grab another one without missing a beat. When he ran out of sticks, he started playing with his hands, then his head.

    Of course every list is subjective and parts always seem to be more about popularity than talent. Carl Palmer is the best rock drummer I ever saw (and I saw Keith Moon, #2). And he's not even on...

    In the same vein as the media coverage of Felix, I don't I've ever heard any commentary of Vashti where they don't mention who her father is. At this point, it seems like she should be considered a...

    While USA dominated most of the 1st half, they are starting to get frustrated. While not as much as in hockey, a hot keeper can lead to beating a superior team. That's how the USA beat Brazil in...

    I initially thought White was also offside when it was played back to her, but you're right, she wasn't. Just watched it again. I withdraw my complaint.

    I'm glad the penalty kick was stopped, but England was offside, should never have looked to determine if it was a penalty in the first place.

    I dunno, the women's world cup announcers have been pretty good. They're definitely getting better. I haven't heard the idiot remarks that I still regularly hear from US track announcers.

    France shrugged and moved on (and maybe the worst VAR call so far). These are the tests you have to pass to win the cup.

    The offside was not called on the player not involved in the play, it was called on the player that received the pass (the back of one foot was offside). Still a very harsh call, but I agree with...
