Morning! Bummer finish for Ravens

Two NFL players got into a fight, then pressed charges against each other, then went all the way to trial before ... what?

Honestly, Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd: Get a room.

Shaquille O'Neal is working his magic on the Suns.

Knicks coach Isiah Thomas says the NBA is slowly phasing out big men. Which came as news to his biggest man, Eddy Curry. And not good news, if you were wondering.

The latest story out of Pacers Land should be titled, "When a posse goes wrong."

Nothing is going right for obvous alleged steroid user Roger Clemens. It's not like his wife didn't have enough reasons to be mad at him.

Tony La Russa is the biggest enabler in the big leagues. In addition to all the other cheaters on his roster, he wanted Barry Bonds too.

The fallout against Michael Beasley has begun to, um, fall.

MMA's return to the Pacific Northwest was a dud, right to the last, when Bob Sapp completely sucked.

Earlier in the night, Joe Riggs looked like he might become the first (known) paralyzed fighter in MMA history.

Why does the NBA bother to have an Eastern Conference? Just contract, eliminate half the league's teams and let the best of the West -- which is to say, the best of the best -- have it out for the NBA title.

Every week brings another news item that makes the Eastern Conference even more irrelevent. You had the Lakers outflanking the Bulls for Pau Gasol. Then you had Miami trading Shaquile O'Neal to the Suns, and while the Heat got Shawn Marion, they won't have him for long. Soon he'll get out of his deal and come back to the West.

Now you have the Nets trading Jason Kidd to Dallas for Devin Harris, who is a nice player but will never be a star.

This is in addition to Portland and Seattle winning the last draft lottery and landing Kevin Durant and Greg Oden. And Denver's acquisition of Allen Iverson from Philadelphia.

Good thing the Celtics traded for Kevin Garnett. Otherwise we'd be looking at Cleveland enduring another Western Conference sweep of the NBA Finals, against Portland or Dallas or Phoenix or Los Angeles or New Orleans or San Antonio.

Or Utah or Denver or ...
