    so many but i'll start from what i saw today in baseball


    pitchers who cant catch a simple pop fly

    lazy first basemen that cant run 4 steps to the base,instead underarm it to the pitcher making it a very close play



    what say you

    The entire notion that sports is so great because it is character building. You would be hard pressed to find a player of most sports, at any level, but especially college and pros, who would not lie, cheat, flop or do anything to either win or improve their own standing. Oh, and the h.s. and college hazing, brutalizing, peeing on each other....well that's just fun too.

    SRS? Watch any basketball game - especially a Heat game. I'm surprised they don't have to replace the floor with the continuous flopping of James, Wade etc.
