Last week there was some speculation that Brett Favre might come back to the NFL for a team other than the Green Bay Packers, but Favre quickly shot those rumors down.  This time the stir is being caused by Favre from an interview a few days ago.  In a news story from Biloxi’s Sun Herald he interviewed with a reporter and said that he might come back next season for the Packers, if they need him. (Here Favre Goes Again)
The Masters, one of golf’s great tournaments, starts today and Awful Announcing offers us some reasons on why we should watch it.  Other than Tiger Woods… (Watch the Masters)
Last Thursday, a girl named ‘Alexa Rodriguez’ was attacked by a hawk while touring Fenway Park in Boston, and honestly I am surprised that this story wasn’t a bigger deal. (When Hawks Attack)
Empty the Bench has a great list of the NBA’s top comeback players of the year. (Empty the Bench)
I don’t know if everyone saw the baseball scores from last night, but the San Francisco Giants actually pitched a 1-0 shutout over the San Diego Padres. (See it, believe it)
Speaking of Barry Bonds, Roto Arcade has some news that the Detroit Tigers might be looking at signing him and they believe if they do than it will be a big mistake. (Keep Bonds Unemployed)

 

 

Here is your fifth installment of a new column called ‘Top 10 Things In Sports’, a new weekly article that I write. Every time we go to sports games there are always fans holding signs that try to be funny, be offensive, or get themselves on tv. Here is your list of the Top 10 Awesome Fan Signs at live sporting events.

Needless to say, most of these signs probably didn’t get on tv.

#10 The Biggest Idiot Ever
 
It’s a great sign, but the stupid egg roll one next to it kind of diminishes it.  Where he lost points in sitting next to a douche bag, he gained back from use of creativity.
#9 Bench It Like Beckham
 
This picture is from one of the MLS games that David Beckham sat out last season.  I was there so I can say that it was a great game for the MLS, but everyone there didn’t pay sixty bucks to see the MLS, they paid to see David Beckham.    

#8 Everyone Hates Duke
 
I think the title serves this picture just fine.
#7 His Brother is the Dumb One
 
This sign does it’s job; it’s witty and everyone around the guy is laughing with (at) him. 
#6 Killing 2 Birds with 1 Stone
 
There aren’t many signs out there that effectively insult the men’s and women’s basketball coach at a school in one shot.  Nice job, fake afro guy.
#5 It May Not True, But It’s Still Funny
 
A great sign overall: nice grade-A diss and a thumbs up stamp of approval from the guy on the left.  This guy does lose some points on the lack of historical research however; the first woman to graduate from Purdue wasn’t until 1878.
#4 To Sidney Crosby: You Have A Secret Admirer
 
Well that’s just plain dirty.  The five hole is the space between the goal-tender’s legs, if you didn’t know that already… so hopefully you get the joke now… 
#3 The Guy Got Ejected
 
The man needs to get some kind of award for that kind of determination; right behind Isiah Thomas, niiiccee.  He got ejected, imagine that.  At least the guy got on the cover of The New York Times.
#2 Mangino Is A Big Man
 
In case you have never seen a picture of Kansas football head coach, Mark Mangino, here is some eye candy for you.  I just want to know how this guy got ‘World’s Largest Underwear’ stitched on there.  Perhaps he is a fashion major…
#1 Best. Sign. Ever.
 
This will go down as one of the all-time greats.  The element of surprise is executed perfectly and it’s even better because the Indian guy has no idea what’s going on.  Good job man, you are truly the king.

Today the Olympic torch will take a stroll through the city of San Francisco in it’s only U.S stop before heading to the Beijing Olympics later this year. If you are in the San Fran area this morning I encourage you to make a cool sign and join the protest. Maybe you’ll get on TV. Google has even made a guide for the international traveling protestor. (Google’s Guide to Protesting the Olympic Torch)

This time of the year there are always tons of stupid brackets made, but ‘Why Don’t we Get Drunk and Blog’ has interesting one going on looking for the worst top sports blog on the web. I encourage everyone to rock the vote. (Suckiest Sports Blog)

After seeing Roy Williams in a shirt endorsing the Kansas Jayhawks at the National Championship, some people are starting to think that he isn’t full of shit after all. I am definitely going to have to beg to differ on that one. (Roy Williams’ Divided Loyalties)

Eli Manning is getting married soon to his longtime sweetheart, how adorable. (We Gonna Get Married)

Supposedly a report has just been announced that Kevin Love and Darren Collison will in fact leave UCLA for June’s NBA draft. UCLA may be hard-pressed to achieve failure in the Final Four again next year. (ESPN)

Not that anybody watches hockey in America, but Sports Opinion has their take on the first round of the NHL playoffs that are set to begin tonight. (NHL Playoff Preview)

Here is your fourth installment of a new column called ‘Top 10 Things In Sports’, a new weekly article that I write.  Here is your list of the Top 10 worst franchises in all of pro sports; both the history and the present are taken into account for the list.

Once again, let the sucking begin.

#10 San Francisco Giants 222-263 (.458, last 3 seasons)

The last three seasons haven’t even been about baseball in San Francisco; they’ve just been about Barry Bonds.  With all the attention on Bonds setting the home-run record, no one really noticed that the Giants were at or near the bottom of the NL West; but everyone will notice this year.  I think the San Francisco Giants have a real shot at going 1-161 this season.

#9 Los Angeles Kings 58-83-21 9 (.358, last 2 seasons)

During the last two NHL regular seasons the only race that the LA Kings have been in is for the coveted worst team in the NHL award, and this year they seem to have won.  More than them just being a bad team they own the rights to the third worst goaltending in the league and the second worst penalty killing; keep it up guys.

#8 Milwaukee Bucks 54-102 (.346, last 2 seasons)

The Milwaukee Bucks are the reason there aren’t many sports teams in the state of Wisconsin.  They have finished last in the Eastern Conference Central the four seasons since the NBA’s divisions were restructured.  On a side note, the Bucks surrender one of the four highest field goal percentages to opposing teams.  The other three NBA teams (no surprise) are also on this list.  And I didn’t believe all those people when they said ‘Defense wins Championships’.

#7 Memphis Grizzlies 42-115 (.268, last 2 seasons)

You can kind of ignore the numbers on this one because it could get a lot worse in the next few years to come.  The Memphis Grizzlies could become one of the elite worst teams in the NBA without Pau Gasol, especially if their draft picks like Mike Conley Jr. and Rudy Gay don’t work out for them.  At least they have younger brother, Marc Gasol…

#6 Miami Heat 13-62 (.173, this season)

Is this the same Miami team that won the NBA Champion only 2 years ago?  The answer, obviously, is no, but talk about a fall from glory.  This team went 2-15 in the month of March, 2-10 in February, and an even worse 1-11 in January.  To be fair this team has been banged up this season including superstars Dwayne Wade and Shawn Marion, but also to be fair, this team will be remembered as one of the worst in the league in a long time.

#5 Miami Dolphins 7-26 (.212, last 2 seasons)

The city of Miami sure is putting out some winners this year.  If anyone should feel bad about the Dolphin’s 1-15 season it should be the Baltimore Ravens who actually lost to them.  Come on Bill Parcells, straighten these mofos up!

#4 Kansas City Royals 245-399 (.380, last 4 seasons)

When I was looking up the Royals’ past few seasons I wasn’t surprised at all.  Everyone talks about how they suck and they really do sporting one 90 loss season and three 100 loss seasons.  This season things are looking up for a change; the KC Royals are a whooping 3-0 and could win more than 70 games …and…  still finish last in the AL Central.
#3 New York Knicks 109-215 (.336, last 4 seasons)   

The New York Knicks have been very consistent over the past four years, only the wrong kind of consistent.  Two seasons ago the Knicks were the worst team in the NBA and believe me, they haven’t gotten any better; others teams have just gotten a little worse.  Last year the stir was Isiah Thomas and his legal trouble, and this year the NYK have turned one of the greatest sports’ venues into the Madison Snore Garden.

#2 Oakland Raiders 16-71 (.184, last 5 seasons)

At this point, if I was a Oakland Raider fan I would be so outraged that I might just revoke my fan hood.  Whoever is in charge of all of the Raiders’ bad decisions should just quit.  And if it’s owner Al Davis than he should really think about putting up the team for public auction.

#1 Pittsburgh Pirates 552 -742 (.427, last 8 seasons)

The Pittsburgh Pirates won’t wow you with their suck factor as they fly a little bit under the radar because they no longer have any fans.  Don’t worry though, this team can definitively hold it’s title of ‘Worst franchise in all of pro sports.’  The Pirates haven’t made the playoffs or had a winning season since 1992, the last year Barry Bonds was on the team.  Don’t get too excited either because the end isn’t in sight, with 15 straight losing seasons, and counting.

What do you think of my list of worst franchises?  What’s your list?
