Question of the Day
HE SAID WHAT?
“It was an accident. I didn’t mean to do it.” - Stars center Steve Ott after gouging an opposing player’s eye in a skirmish
Newsmakers: Who’s making headlines this week
A guy who caught a whopping four touchdowns last year sure garnered a lot of attention before signing with Seattle.
The Pistons guard had his back examined in the District on Tuesday. Detroit might be better without him.
OK, this is international, but Canada’s premier hockey voice is getting hammered for ripping Alex Ovechkin.
Elbow problems for Santana are not what the Mets want to hear after two straight September meltdowns.
Even though his perjury trial was delayed until July, this guy has been tarred and feathered in baseball circles already.
TWT FIVE: Least-deserving MVPs
1. Mo Vaughn, 1995 - The Red Sox slugger (.300, 39 HR, 126 RBI) stole the AL’s top individual honor from Albert Belle (.317, 50 HR, 52 2B, 126 RBI).
2. Karl Malone, 1997 - Malone won the first of his two MVPs because his 27.4 ppg led the Jazz to 64 wins. Only problem? Michael Jordan led Chicago to 69.
3. Mickey Cochrane, 1934 - AL voters deemed the Detroit catcher’s .320 average and 76 RBI MVP worthy. However, he wasn’t as deserving as Lou Gehrig (.363, 49 HR, 165 RBI).
4. Joe Montana, 1990 - The 49ers QB won his second MVP after throwing for 3,944 yards, but Randall Cunningham posted a better passer rating. Oh, don’t forget his 942 rushing yards.
5. Jose Theodore, 2002 - Canadiens goalie won because of his league-best save percentage but owned a 30-24-10 record. Calgary’s Jarome Iginla was voted MVP by his peers.
