MORE ON WHY BRAZILIAN SOCCER RULES
With 10-cent gas and the most uninhibited women in the world, Brazil is my next home. We showed you yesterday, the difference between US and Brazilian soccer by pitting American Michelle Akers against Laisa Andrioli (NSFW).

PITTSBURGH SPORTS TALKER FIRED…WHY?
ESPN1250 in Pittsburgh dumped Mark Madden for his Ted Kennedy remarks..
“I’m very disappointed to hear Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts is near death because of a brain tumor. I always hoped Senator Kennedy would live long enough to be assassinated.”
The first response from many is, “he crossed the line and community has spoken.” Is that right? Check out the message boards from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette…
When you listened to Mark Madden you knew what you were getting. Sure he was offensive at times but you always had the choice of not listening. The Ted Kennedy comment was very unfortunate on Madden’s part. He knew what he was saying when he said it. Had he stuck to sports I bet no one would care.

Mark Madden was in the sports entertainment business. The second word is imperative. Mr. Madden was and is an entertainer. With a vast knowledge of sport and the ability to make us laugh, become angry, or experience any other series of emotions, Madden could at least invoke something interesting in each of us (or play devil’s advocate) which is better, or more interesting, than the ra-ra talk elsewhere

It’s disappointing to read Mark has been canned (even though we knew it was just a matter of time). Not only because he brought SATIRE to sports radio, but because ESPN radio has been exposed as the “Stepford Wife” of the Disney corp. Let’s be honest, he wasn’t fired because of the Kennedy comments – he had made too many disparaging comments about ESPN itself lately.
At last you finally got rid of this creep. He’s a disgrace to sports talk radio and to Pittsburgh. Every time I came back to the Burgh I couldn’t believe he was still on the air.
I haven’t always agreed with everything Madden has said, but this firing is a little ridiculous. Obviously, this was an offensive remark. But I find it very ironic who the other party is. Ted Kennedy has made an entire political career of offensive, and even bigoted remarks.
Mark had something no other radio personality had..personality. I am sure he will be picked up by someone soon and I will listen again. If you didn’t like it you didn’t have to listen. Just the same I don’t like ESPN radio now .. So I will not listen.
The real reason that Mark Madden was fired is because of his relentless criticism of ESPN for not hiring him, instead of Mike Tirico. He has on numerous times claimed Tirico was his inferior and that he was the man for the job.
Read the entire comments section, see how negative remarks about Madden you can find. Looks to me like the community wants ESPN management fired.
YAHOO’S DAN WETZEL SAYS KIMBO NOT A MAIN EVENT FIGHTER
Dan is quickly becoming a fan of MMA. He talks about the CBS debut of MMA with a card this Saturday night. I disagree with him on this one. But his points are well explained…
If this is, indeed, the most important card in the history of the sport, wouldn’t it be nice if it actually had some of the best fighters and best representatives of mixed martial arts?
Anderson Silva, B.J. Penn and Georges St. Pierre display what MMA is all about. Not menacing scowls and WWE-like personas, but unreal athletic ability, disciplined training and tremendous intelligence from fighters as multi-skilled as they are fearless.
If one of them were on CBS, it would force America to realize what MMA really is. Kimbo, who taps into our primal instincts, plays to what many think the sport is. Let Kimbo cash every check he can – good for him – but he plays to MMA’s difficult-to-shake reputation as “human cockfighting,” as Sen. John McCain once branded it.
How many of these stupid headlines will we see tomorrow and Saturday leading up the Kimbo card? This from the Chicago Tribune….
CBS ready to present ‘human cockfighting’
The story has little to do with that headline. Clearly, another Indy 500 and French Open fan is working the desk of a soon to be obsolete newspaper sports staff.
PETE ROSE, WHO CARES?
Sorry Pete, you had your time to tell the truth throughout the 90’s. It’s too late. This gem from the Dan Patrick Show. Rose says he bet 2k a game, only on the Reds.
“It was like $2,000. That’s it,” Rose said in the interview. “And it didn’t change — because I know you’re going to say, Well betting’s all about pitching and stuff like that — I didn’t care who was pitching for me or who was pitching for the opposition. I just made it easy for the guys making the bets and just bet this much every game and that’s the way we did it.”
I don’t see why we should believe anything Pete says at this point. Does anyone truly think a degenerate gambler of Pete’s level wouldn’t bet against his team too?
MARIAH CAREY IS MOVING UP THE MOST DOABLE COUGAR LIST
SPEAKING OF COUGARS, IS ALYSSA MILANO THERE YET?
I’m a huge fan of Samantha Micelli. She loves sports. That’s clear from the 100+ athletes she’s dated. Just kidding, it’s only dozens. Hard to believe that she’s 35!! She looks great.

TRUTH COMES ABOUT SEX AND THE CITY CHICKS…THEY WERE WHORES!
Who got paid to do this research? Someone from the Daily News combed over the 94 episodes of the HBO show to see how many partners the 30 and 40-something broads bedded..
We did the math, punched in some numbers and calculated that during the course of 94 episodes and six seasons, the women of “Sex and the City” hit the sheets with a combined total of 94 men and one woman.
Perennially chic newspaper columnist Carrie Bradshaw and her three cohorts picked up waiters, doormen, trainers, lawyers, yoga instructors, bartenders, writers, baseball players, ophthalmologists, Realtors, artists, architects, furniture designers and unemployed actors.
