Yeah Good, Yeah Bad

Every day, I'm reminded why I love sports. But the sports world, unlike Disneyland isn't always the happiest place on earth. For every good, there's a bad. So here's just a sampling of the good and the bad from the past few days.

Good: Kobe finally winning the MVP he's long deserved. The announcement is expected at a news conference today.
At 29 years old and in his prime, Kobe has finally matured and realized how important he is to the team's chemistry. You can tell by his comments and the way he's interacted with his teammates, he's truly happy with the situation he's in.

"I didn't know if it was going to come in my career, but to have the moment come now is special, especially to share it with the group of guys we have here," Bryant told reporters Saturday. "We talked about [how] winning this MVP is extremely special because that means I'm doing good. I'm making my teammates better, putting them in a position to win."

Bad: The average fan not only continues to be priced out but is increasingly being disrespected and given less access. Stories like this about the Dodgers make me angry.

Good: Another reminder why Derek Fisher is not just a special player, but a special human being. He's the MVP of his family and will always be one of my favorite Lakers.

Bad: Cedric Benson and the drunk boat.

Good: Unselfish acts in sports never go unnoticed. From sac bunts to charges to taken, to stories like this one about a little softball game with about 100 spectators. But the sports world took notice.

Bad: Marvin Harrison, one of the few "good" wide receivers in the NFL getting mixed up in a shooting investigation.
Since he has done nothing wrong previously, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt until all the facts are unturned but I'm saddened to hear his name in a negative light.

Good: Moves by Chris Paul that have you talking days later. Check this one out about 1:50 into the video.
He missed the layup and it didn't even matter. Made me think of Jason Williams highlights from his kings days when SportsCenter would show him on the top 10 even when he failed to finish the play.

Bad: The term student athlete is being made a complete mockery. One hundred and fifty teams are facing scholarship losses and another 26 may be banned from post- season play because they can't make the grade.

Good: The Rays, with about $150 million less on their payroll are tied in the standings with the Yankees.

Bad: I wonder what kind of signs Red Sox fans can come up with for this. A-Rod apparently can't the pressure in the delivery room either.

Good: PacMan Jones is getting a second chance with the Cowboys.

Bad: PacMan Jones is getting a second chance with the Cowboys.

Good: Blake DeWitt (.295, 1 HR, 14 RBIs, 10 BBs, 10ks, in shape, makes $390,000)

Bad: Andruw Jones (.158 1 HR, 4 RBIs, 15 BBS, 34 ks, fat, makes $14, 726, 910)

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
