The Activities Column

Its been an excellent, poor and ugly type of week for me personally.

I hit the trifecta at Pimlico--thats good.

My Little League kiddies went 0-3 with Coach Reavy in attendance--thats poor.

And Wednesday night, upon hearing of the reality collapse of my dawg, Elliot Yamin, I was both sad to listen to the news and disappointed in the conclusion that I had just watched 12 direct symptoms of American Idol, occupying two months--thats...well, you get the idea.

Fortuitously for me, however, the sports world is never without its good, bad and ugly moments also. I learned about by browsing Yahoo.

Listed here are the high (and low )lights of-the week thats handed.

The Good:

Todd Bonds 714th homerun ball--for Tyler Snyder, it was caught by the guy who. Surely the eBay--er, Bay Area-- devoted are pleased with their slugger, and may open their checkbooks to make a bid for the historic boost. Be taught further about by navigating to our riveting essay. But, to me, nothing tells the tale more beautifully than these four words uttered by Tyler, the soon-to-be rich Athletics fan (due to Bonds), following the game: I hate that man.

The NBA playoffs. I cant help but marvel at the fantastic series which were performed up-to this point, while the highlight of my baseball season is admittedly the NBA draft. It surely has made me forget the NHL is on strike. (Editors note: Kevin doesnt get the OLN channel.)

After dropping five immediately, the Phillies finally won.

The Bad:

After losing five immediately, the Phillies finally won.

Cubs catcher, Michael Barrett, hit AJ Pierzynski following a crash at home plate. This is a bad thing only because I think when delivering the blow Barrett might have injured his hand.

NBC began broadcast periods of-the National Heads-Up Poker Championship. This could be a positive thing had ESPN not made a decision to air approximately 300 episodes of World Series of Poker competitions on a continuing loop on ESPN channels 1thru 6. This could be great if Celebrity Poker and the World Poker Tour Who Gives a Crap werent currently force-feeding its addictive felt-and-clay-chip plentiful draw down my throat.Instead, its overkill. Not because I hate watching poker shows o-n TV, but because I watch them all. And I need my life back. This thought-provoking site preview article has various splendid warnings for when to allow for it.

The Ugly:

Just one single thing... Going To possibly provides cautions you should tell your brother.

Kobes apparel o-n 'Within the NBA' last Wednesday. Since nothing says street cred like-a powder-blue sweater vest.


That'll take action for this days version of The Sports Column. Ill attempt to watch out for the most effective stories for next time, this week easily may avoid the TiVo-limit hold em battery.

Until then, benefit from the information as it occurs..
