    I was truly embarrassed for my Hoosiers yesterday. Then I saw the Notre Dame game (14-66) and felt a bit better.

    I remember back in the late 80s when "Spirit Rebel" Kyle Griffith said that sports were the latest way, since the decline of religion, for the dead to syphon energy from the living, and that it would just get bigger and bigger. It has gotten bigger and bigger, so maybe he was right.

    I doubt any American football player could compare to this man, the most astonishingly powerful rugby player the game has ever produced.

    And this time for baseball fans:

    Here's the legendary West Indian Sir Garry Sobers, one of the greatest cricketers the game has known, hitting 6 sixes in succession back in 1968. The feat has been repeated a tiny handful of times in the 50 years since, but this was the first time it'd ever been done.

    An explanation of what a 'six' is: it's when the ball is hit to clear the whole outfield without bouncing. So what you see here is pretty much the equivalent of a batter hitting six home runs in consecutive pitches.

    Colts won!!! 19-17 over the Titans. Adam V. couldn't kick an extra point to save his life, but they were still able to hold on with a risky gamble of a fourth down play. What-a-game!

    Ok NOW I'm starting to doubt your judgement!

    So I follow the Jacksonville Jaguars. We suck, which sucks. We can't get a break. At the very start of this season our quarterback got injured and now he's out for the rest of the season.

    What sports did you folks play? I wasn't a hardcore sports guy but for 1 year each I played soccer (mid), then football (strong safety) and then wrestled. I'm glad I did it when I did, it was a great experience.
