Randy Johnson has become the oldest man to ever pitch a perfect game. The Big Eunuch is still ugly. It ain't his fault, though. I still wish he was pitchin' for the Rangers, but mostly just glad he ain't pitchin'... [Read More]

A perfect game at forty! There's hope for us old geezers yet!

I think Nolan Ryan threw two no-hitters after the age of 40 (but he never threw a perfect game, in 27 years).

"There is nothing in all of sports more beautiful than a perfect game."

Now that I can agree on. :)

Oh yeah. Hometown boy does good!

I loooooooooooooooove Randy Johnson. He's the biggest redneck in Baseball (now that Will Clark's retired).

I have great memories of watching Randy dominate: specifically, sending one Yankee after another, after another, after another limping back to the dugout with tail between legs in the 2001 series. Yee-Haw!

If only he plunked a few of them those would be my "Perfect Games"! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh, how we Mariner fans miss the big mullet head.

I never thought I'd see the words 'beautiful' and 'Randy johnson' in the same sentence.

Michele thinks Randy is beautiful because his name's Johnson and he is the "Big Unit"

OT, but I couldn't find your email link.

Statement From United States Olympic Committee Chief Executive Jim Scherr Regarding U.S. Athletes Celebrating With The American Flag At The Athens Olympic And Paralympic Games

"The United States Olympic Committee wants to make it absolutely clear that we have not -- and will not -- instruct our athletes to refrain from waving the United States flag during the upcoming Athens Olympic and Paralympic Games. Any suggestions
or statements to the contrary do not reflect the official position of our organization.

Athletes will be free, as always, to celebrate their performances in an exuberant, respectful way during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. We will remind our athletes that they are guests of the Olympic movement, Greece, and the city of Athens and
to be good ambassadors of our country, their communities, families and sports. We want our athletes to be champions who conduct themselves with class and, if it is the case, to lose with grace and dignity. Additionally, we are reminding them to
treat the United States flag with the respect it deserves.

One of the proudest moments of my life was to put on my USA warm-up and represent my country at the 1988 Olympic Games. I know our athletes feel the same way today and we will not in any way infringe upon that honor.

Accomplishments of athletes and teams such as the 1980 United States Olympic Hockey Team, the great Billy Mills, swimming legend Janet Evans and countless others have inspired our nation. We are certain that the athletes who represent the United
States at the 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games will do the same."

That's damn impressive, especially after a lot of people in the sports world wrote Johnson off after last season.

You know what else is beautiful? Two of the American League's best teams squaring off in a 1-0 extra-inning game. Go Halos!

A perfect game is a very fine thing. However, can you really say it's more beautiful than a walk off Grand-slam to win by one?

Yes.

congrats to the Big Unit, but right now I'm too ticked off at a certain member of the NY Yankees 'braintrust':

Cracker Jack kicked out of Yankees Stadium.

I was already prepared to address this issue today.

Blasphemous.
