Quick hits - World Cup Fever

Times have changed.....international competition does not mean as much to American athletes as it does to the rest of the world.....and this year’s World Cup is more proof to support that claim....

Professional soccer players like Beckham, Ronaldo and others have put aside their professional career just to play for their country in the World Cup.....from what I read, it wasn’t even a hard decision for these men....that cannot be said about the U.S.....the NBA has to lobby and cajole its NBA stars to represent the U.S. in the World Championships and Olympics.....

The thrill on winning an international competition is meaningless for American professional athletes.....there is no longer that Cold War bear of the Soviet Union lurking across the way.....and the pros are more concerned about getting injured than winning for their country....

Times do change.....

By the way, why isn’t Freddy Adu on the U.S. team in the World Cup?.....I thought that he became an American citizen so he can play on the U.S. World Cup team?.....

Take Edmonton tonight in game six of the Stanley Cup Finals....

I’m sorry North Carolina, but winning the Stanley Cup means a lot more to Edmonton that it does Charlotte.....
For breakfast – bacon or sausage?.....

College sports is better than pro sports....the excitement that I watched last weekend during the Super Regionals of the NCAA College Baseball World Series cannot be found on the professional level.....these kids flat out care about winning and representing their university....

By the way, take Rice in the College World Series....

Whatever happened to Brooks Kieschnick?....

Get ready for game seven in the NBA Finals.....

Okay Cleveland fans, lets be objective and honest....who would you pick if you had your choice - Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, or Dwayne Wade?.....

Is it just me or is the clocking ticking on Eric Wedge’s days as manager of the Tribe?.....

The month of June has been a nightmare for Alex Rodriguez.....Arod is struggling at the plate and also in the field.....the Yankees deserve a bit more from Arod for $25 million they are dishing out...

Just received my authentic Mariano Rivera Yankees pinstripe jersey this week....

Sweet Baby Ray’s is some good barbeque sauce in a jar....

Almost all the football preview magazines are on the newsstand.....can’t wait for football season.....

It would be nice if Ben Roethlisberger would do a national public service announcement stressing the importance of wearing your helmet when riding your motorcycle....

Even though Katie Couric will be heading up the CBS Evening News come this September, I’m still a Brian Williams fan.....

It’s Saturday at a major and no Tiger......hopefully he spends a peaceful Father’s Day.....

LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, or Dwayne Wade? Is this a joke? If LeBron had Shaq on his team, he would be playing for the NBA title. The answer? LeBron
