bench clearing brawls

i post the following from rink blog, not ONLY because it supports my arguments against critics of hockey, but because doug (my foremost critic) and i have discussed this very issue, and doug called me a big fat liar. or at least, he didn’t believe me that there are more bench-clearing brawls in baseball […]

Limbaugh and McNabb

By now, everyone knows about Rish Limbaugh’s comments on Donovan McNabb, the Philadelphia Eagle’s QB. Limbaugh talked about how the NFL and TV personalities, wanting black QBs to “do well”, have pumped McNabb up to be much more than he is.

inane controversy over mel gibson’s the passion

the anti-defamation league is concerned because mel gibson’s film, due out spring 2004, blames jews for the death of jesus christ. the film graphically depicts the last hours of christ’s life. [see the trailer]
