    If Ben Roethlisberger was wearing Jay Mariotti on his head while riding his motorcycle, he proabably wouldn't have broken his jaw.

    Actually, for the record, the White Sox begin a series in Pittsburgh tomorrow night.

    I haven't watched Sports Center in a few days, so I don't know how big of a national story this has become outside of journalism circles. But if it is as big a deal as everyone is making it, I'd say that the fact that Mariotti's father is a local and the fact that the Sox -- and, presumably, Mariotti -- will be in town tomorrow, make it sensible to run the letter.

    Then again, I don't think it is as big a deal as everyone is making it, which is why I don't think it makes sense to run it.

    A manager called a columnist a "fag."

    That's it.

    Who fucking cares?

    Meanwhile, Brett Myers punched his wife twice in the face in front of a team hotel on the morning before he was suposed to pitch against the Red Sox and then went on to pitch anyway.

    Are we that sensitive of a society where name-calling is worth four days of news coverage??

    As an aside (and from the small world catagory) --

    The person who runs the Butler Little League is Matt Clement's father. Just thought I'd throw that in being that the Butler LL came up.
