UG Sports - 1

Hey folks, we had our first international visitors over the past couple days (Argentina, India and North Dakota). Yes we had a hit from Canada, but as we all know, Canada does not count as international. North Dakota, on the other hand, absolutely does.

Anyway, a few of our loyal readers complained about the utter lack of sports on UG. And since we at UG try our very best to satisfy our readers. So here is the plan: every Friday I will make a sports post on UG rounding up the important events of the week.

Brett "Hamlet" Favre mulling his options
  •  Football: Brett "Hamlet" Favre pulls off another "Will I-Won't I" stunt. Favre reportedly sent text messages to Vikings teammates saying he was done but when questioned about it the next day, denied doing anything of that sort. Wassamatter Brett? Your dog sent those texts? Meanwhile, Vikings players not ruffled by these shenanigans at all. I guess they are too busy enjoying the staging of Hamlet-2 (or is it 3?)

No one cares, Alex...
  • Baseball: Noted steroid user Alex Rodriguez hit his 600th home-run, becoming the youngest player in history to do so. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Nuff said.  
  • Basketball: The Giant Leprechaun!!!! Yes, Shaquille O'Neal, the legend and gazillion time all-star who brought us this monstrosity: Kazaam , signed a 2-year deal with the Boston Celtics. This act by O'Neal promptly spurred the sports world into coining various nicknames for the big guy. Ones I like: The giant leprechaun, The big shamrock, and the Jolly Green Giant.
