I'm supposed to sympathize with Michael Beasley

But I don't. Sorry. Sue me for being a bad guy, a hard heart, a cold soul.

Mental illness is real, and suicidal tendencies, even those that are nothing more than a cry for attention -- and I have no idea if Beasley was being serious or just seeking attention -- are nothing to sneer at. But when the suicidal guy is one of the most talented professional athletes in a sport, and he has more money and fame and dating opportunities than most of us will ever have ... it ticks me off.

If Michael Beasley can't be happy with his life now, good heavens. It's like Vince Young last year. Or Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, who did commit suicide. If you can't be happy in THAT life, trade with me. Or you. Or any of us who struggle to pay our bills and meet women and impress our bosses and save money for the future and in general make an impact in this world. Trade with me, Michael Beasley.

I'm supposed to feel badly for the guy.

Instead I'm pissed at him.

What does that make me guilty of? It makes me guilty of being honest.

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.
