    As I was growing up, baseball was our national pastime...no other sport was even a close second...God, I can remember my grandmother watching the game of the week...

    Football has taken over in America, it has become the dominate sport...

    Here's some food for thought, thanks to the brilliant mind of the late George Carlin...

    Women's sports are gaining some popularity. I have a feeling that competitive wedding cake eating may make Division 1 in the near future.
