The Sports Pig says: In one of the most appalling acts in Olympic history, Cuba’s Angel Valodia Matos kicked a Swedish referee in the face after losing his bronze medal match in taekwando. Matos attacked the official, throwing punches and kicks, after being declared the loser.
It’s funny how little criticism thug Delisha Milton-Jones is getting for punching a coach. Yet Mahorn is getting blasted for pushing Lisa Leslie.
IGNORANT AMERICANS CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY CHILDRESS BOLTED FOR EUROPE
What is the issue with former Hawk Josh Childress leaving the NBA? Let’s see: pay me $20 million, lead a team in scoring and live in Greece. You’re right, Childress is crazy!! Here’s a shocker, it’s a possibility that some people actually think living outside the country is better than living in Hotlanta.

ANTI-AMERICAN JOURNALIST POPPED FOR RUNNING OVER A PEDESTRIAN
Edgar Mercedes has made a fortune taking bets. He is the owner of Out 27, the biggest sports book and bar in the Dominican Republic. Mercedes also owns 45 other bookmaking operations on the island. Mercedes is a top ”Buscones” or street agent who represents several baseball players (including Inoa.)
Ok, we’re back. Sorry for the hiatus. If you haven’t heard, we’re blogging MMA and some boxing for Yahoo. We will do our best to keep Mr. Sunshine current. Especially with the topics, pictures and videos we discuss on Cofield & Cokin.
We love to see anti-Vegas Senator Brownback saying he’s not in favor of big government legislating the robber barron oil companies. Seems like a complete reversal since this is the same guy who is pro-government intervention when it comes to the FCC and free speech on TV/radio. He’s also in line with Tennessee’s Bill Frist on making sure that the nation can’t gamble online.
It was about respect and cultures and the future of mankind. The Lakers and Celtics didn’t just want to beat each other, they wanted to beat each other down. Wanted complete submission, wanted to hear a last gasp.
Now everybody is just so chummy, it’s disgusting. They all know and like each other. They’re pals off the court. They don’t just shake hands, they hug.
Kevin Garnett puts his arm around a young Kobe Bryant at his first All-Star Game and says, “Don’t worry kid, I’ll help you out.” And then lobs him a pass. Bryant and Paul Pierce play summer hoops together at UCLA. They probably share Christmas cards.
It’s way too cute for me. A true disservice to all those Lakers and Celtics who came before them and would spill blood on the floor before capitulating.
IS BOB RYAN REALLY MORE LEGIT THAN BILL SIMMONS?
Ryan went out of his way to attack ESPN’s internet star Bill Simmons last week. Ryan basically said Simmons lacked perspective in saying that the Lakers-Celtics really isn’t a great rivalry outside of their meetings in the 80s.
Beware of clever people who know what they know, but don’t know what they don’t know, which is far more important.
There is a younger writer of great renown who loves the Boston Celtics, which is fine. He commands an enormous national audience, who have come to regard him as The Authority on all things Celtic. And he has an exhaustive knowledge of the current team. No problem there.
But he has over-stepped his bounds. He is trying to sum up the whole Celtics-Lakers thing in his dot.com forum, and he starts off by saying that it wasn’t really a rivalry because the Celtics won the first eight times the two played in the Finals. He completely dismissed the six series of the 60s because the Celtics won all six, as if this somehow means by definition the two teams did not have a viable rivalry.
Now Ryan has people questioning his perspective or better yet his level of scenility with this gem from the weekend.
Here are the Two Live Stews debating Ryan’s Paul Pierce comments..
IS IT PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL WITH THOSE?
According to three sources, Ramírez had told Youkilis to “cut that [expletive] out.” That was what provoked Youkilis and started the problem.
Neither player was in the clubhouse after Thursday’s game.
The two hadn’t spoken as of yesterday afternoon. “We’ll talk, definitely,” Youkilis said. “We’ve got 99 games left. It’s a long season.”
While sources had indicated that part of the problem was Youkilis’s tossing of equipment in the dugout, the first baseman said, “I think it was a misunderstanding more than anything. I don’t think it was because I threw something.”

PHONY ARGUMENTS…WHAT’S WORSE WHITLOCK OR THIS ESPN “HEATED” DEBATE
Doesn’t it seem like Jason Whitlock only writes about race now. He also loves to go against the grain and side with whitey. I’m the first guy to admit many of the NBA’s popularity issues of the past 10 years revolved around white america and it’s biases. But Whitlock’s take that the NBA is back because it’s cleaned up its visual image is silly..
**No one wants to watch Delonte West or Larry Hughes play basketball. It’s uncomfortable and disconcerting. You don’t want your kids to see it. You don’t want your kids to think they should decorate their neck, arms, hands, chest and legs in paint. You don’t want to waste time explaining to your kids that some millionaire athletes have so little genuine self-confidence that they find it necessary to cover themselves in tattoos as a way to mask their insecurities.
**You just want to watch basketball and feel like you’re watching people you can relate to a little bit, people you somewhat respect.
**The dress code and the age limit have helped.
I CANT WAIT TO GET THE NEW WNBA VIDEO GAME!!!

WHY IS AMERICAN PIE’S JASON BIGGS HANGING AT REHAB?
KATE COURIC’S MALE COUNTERPART IS ON BOARD AT ESPN
Next week is the big one!!! Can you feel the excitement? Rick Reilly, the J.D. Drew of the media, starts his downspiral on The Leader. Reilly is a solid scribe but does he have any shot to actually earn his $3.4 million a year salary? Track his TV and radio appearances. I’m saying he’s somewhere between Roy Smalley and Howie Schwab. Who got a worse deal…ESPN or the Red Sox with Drew ($14 mill/yr)?
