    England 1, USA 1: My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. When the doors opened at 6 a.m. Saturday at Trinity Hall in Mockingbird Station, there were already 20 people lined up for a day of World Cup watching. We can rip soccer (and we will), but it's hard to criticize its fans' passion. 9. In a sport where you can't use your hands, it'd be bet ... More >>

    The Top 10 Couples I'd Like to See on DWTS

    ​Granted, it would force me to actually watch the ridiculousy cheesy show, but I'd be willing to stomach Dancing With The Stars' sequins and sass and smarminess of Tom Bergeron if only I could orchestrate whom was boogieing down with whom. Following in the "Foxtrot" footsteps of Emmitt S ... More >>

    Richie Whitt 1964-2009

    Like it did with you, all these recent deaths - Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Alexis Arguello, Steve McNair and Best Damn Sports Show - got me to thinking about my own mortality. Today, the day I celebrate turning halfway to 90, I thought I'd dip my toe in the deep, dark water to see what it ... More >>

    The Top 10 Hottest Women's Tennis Players

    Even if you don't like tennis, I'm suggesting you'll enjoy The French Open. Hot and dirty young women sweating and grunting and playing with fuzzy balls. What's not to like lust? Even though Anna Kournikova has bagged her beautiful raquets, there's plenty to look at in the women's gam ... More >>

    The following is a prime example of my curse here on Earth.

    Sasha Cohen Bringing Her Short Skirt and Long Legs to Dallas

    What better way to cap our very female-friendly Thursday than with an interview with the No. 3-ranked hottest female athlete on the planet? That's right, Sasha Cohen is in the Sportatorium. I see it this way: If you selfishly keep Valentine's Day as yours, go to Purgatory Saturday night at ... More >>

    The Top 10 Sports Zingers I Can Think of Off the Top of My Head

    Not saying Sean Avery isn't an asshole. Or a horrible teammate. Or, for that matter, a room-wrecker the Dallas Stars should consider dumping.I'm just saying he shouldn't have been suspended - or worse, pending this afternoon's meeting with NHL poobah Gary Bettman in New York - merely for his "sloppy ...

    The Top 10 Hottest Female Athletes in the History of Ever

    She'll be in town this weekend. Plan accordingly. Couple years ago during a rain delay at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York I was chatting in the players’ lounge when I nonchalantly reached for a piece of fruit on the lavish buffet. Simultaneously, and just as casually, Anna Kournikova ... More >>

    In a parallel universe, this photo is of me with some groupie chick. Big news from my wife over Labor Day: This guy has supplanted this guy atop her “list.” Alas, my rankings are unchanged.

    At Least I Got Two Predictions Right

    Who knew this trade would be disastrous? Um, yours truly. I thought the Internet was a fad. I was convinced Tom Landry would never ever never get fired (or die). And I just knew Anna Kournikova was built to win at least one Grand Slam. But last winter, even this blind squirrel found two nuts ... More >>
