Auburn cornerback Jerraud Powers was a 6-year-old the last time he bit by a dog. Until this past weekend.


With less than three minutes in the game, Powers was in the vicinity of an incomplete pass by Alabama’s John Parker Wilson. While Powers was celebrating, a police dog guided by a state trooper attacked Powers’ left hand. Perhaps the dog is an Alabama fan...

A Very Unlucky Bounce

Posted by Trish18 Nov 19, 2007

One of the craziest field goal attempts I’ve ever seen took place yesterday. 


The Cleveland Browns trailed the Baltimore Ravens 30-27 on the final play of regulation when Phil Dawson attempted a tying 51-yard kick. The ball seemingly bounced off the crossbar before bounding into the end zone. The officials called the kick no good and the Ravens ran off the field celebrating.


However, several Cleveland players insisted Dawson's kick hit the curved support behind the crossbar and then bounced back into the end zone. After discussing, the officials ruled that the kick passed through the uprights and called the players, many of which were already in the locker room, back onto the field.


A very unlucky bounce indeed, but luckily the officials made the correct call.


In overtime, the Browns drove 43 yards before Dawson kicked a 33-yard field goal to win.

Cycle ball aka "radball"

Posted by Active Toby Nov 14, 2007

According to Wikipedia: "Cycle ball, also known as "radball" (a German word literally translated as "wheel-ball") is a sport, similar to football only the competitors play while riding bicycles. Each of the two people on a team rides a specialized bicycle with no brakes and no freewheel (a fixed gear bicycle). The ball is controlled by using the bike and (rarely) the head, except when defending the goal."

The University of Arizona men's basketball team kicks off its regular season tonight against hopelessly outmatched Northern Arizona. Come March, the 'Cats will make their 24th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. Come April, might we see a repeat of this scene?

In case you haven't guessed yet, I went to college at U of A. If you've never been to Tucson, there really is no place like it. Great weather (except in Summer), beautiful mountains, eclectic people, javelinas...the list goes on. If you don't have plans yet for President's Day weekend, you might give some thought to checking out the Kona Bikes 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo

Three-thousand people, killer terrain and a late night fire show...what's not to love?

The night before I left Las Vegas I walked out in the desert to look at the moon.  There was a jeweled city on the horizon, spires rising in the night, but the jewels were diadems of electric and the spires were the neon of signs ten stories high.  ~Norman Mailer

So...I'm thinking about doing the Long Beach Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving this year as I'll be in the neighborhood and would like a good excuse for the coma-inducing amount of food I plan on eating later in the day.


Are you planning to lace 'em up on T-Day? Is so, where?
