Lin is good, but he is a turnover machine.
Kinda like Tim Tebow? Good at winning, though quite often by overcoming his many glaring mistakes. Brett Favre was kinda that way, too.

Especially towards the end of his career.

Well-established Asian American youth basketball leagues paved the way for Knicks star Jeremy Lin. That's according to Jamilah King, news editor for Colorlines.com. She discusses the leagues with host Michel Martin.

"One of the reasons I get on a knee is because that's a form of humbling yourself," Tebow explained. "I want to humble myself before the Lord and say thank you for this opportunity. Thank you for letting me play the game I love."

The 24-year-old talked about the Bible verses written in the eye black he wears during the game — he said he was shocked that 94 million people did a Google search for "John 3:16" after he wore it during the 2009 national championship. He talked about his teammates teasing him for not cursing on the field.

And he discussed his visits to orphans, hospitalized children and jails.

He visits death row inmates "just to shake their hand or give them a hug when I'm not supposed to, because the guards get mad, to show them someone still cares and loves them and that God forgives them and still wants a relationship with them. It's one of the coolest things I get to do."

It looks as if the Colts are going to release Peyton Manning tomorrow.

Just as it was really weird for me to see Joe Montana in a Chiefs uniform, it's going to be just as weird to see Peyton in a uniform without the horseshoe on it.

MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippines church's tapping of boxing champion Manny Pacquiao as an advocate for Bible reading has drawn both criticism of the use of the boxer's celebrity and support for bringing the Bible to the public eye.

At the end of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines plenary assembly in January, Auxiliary Bishop Pablo David of San Fernando, chairman of the Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate, announced a plan to invite Pacquiao to help promote Bible reading among Filipinos after news broke of the boxer's conversion.

"My concept was to invite Manny Pacquiao to partner with [the commission] in promotion of Bible reading among Catholics because he says he's now a Bible-reading Catholic," David said.

Breakfast banter this morning was about March Madness, of course, and one topic was when (and whether) a #16 would beat a #1.  My colleague's answer was "never", and I countered with the idea that can't happen usually happens anyway.  Given enough time, big upsets will occur.  He was unconvinced.

So trying to harness the power of mathematical reasoning to bolster my claim, I took some data from previous tournaments, and calculated the average margin of victory for the #1 vs. #16 games each four years from 1985 to 2009.  (They ranged from 9 to 34, btw.)  Using a handy online linear regression calculator, I was surprised to see that the slope was actually positive (0.480), meaning that my colleague was right -- at this rate, it is unlikely that a 16 will ever beat a 1.

Never one to take no for an answer, I deliberately skewed the data, using every 8th year.  (This avoided the anomalous year of 1989 (early in the data), when two #16 teams were beaten by only one point -- the closest margin of defeat yet, and the only two times it's been done.)  But again to my surprise, the trend was actually stronger, the slope of the regression line being 0.509

Perhaps my colleague is right.  Will it never be done?  I hate being wrong.

We are not talking pugilism.

One of the most beautiful activities engaged in by men. Too bad the corruption runs deeps.

It is more sport than most of the silliness discussed in this thread.

MANILA, Philippines -- World boxing champ Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao is expected to tell priests at their recollection Tuesday how the Bible is helping him live an upright life and why he is in their corner in the bout against destructive mining.

Some of the 72 diocesan and religious priests serving in the Marbel diocese are to gather Tuesday in Pacquiao's mansion in General Santos City, southern Philippines, for their bimonthly joint recollection, Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez of Marbel told NCR on Sunday.

Pacquiao, the first boxer to be world champion in eight divisions, has built himself a 35 million peso ($820,000) house in the city. On May 2010, he was elected representative for Sarangani's lone district in the House of Representatives.
....
After 9 a.m. praise, Pacquiao is scheduled to speak on how to read the Bible and on his position against mining, Gutierrez said.

"He is rabidly anti-mining," he said, quoting Pacquiao's remark that destruction done by the Tampakan Copper-Gold Project "should not be allowed."

The project plans to clear 3,935 hectares of forest, including rainforests, to build open-pit mines. The mines will tap what are reportedly the largest undeveloped copper-gold deposits in the Southeast Asia-Western Pacific region.

I really don't see who benefits here. Denver loses an incredibly marketable quarterback who has good chemistry with their team, and Peyton loses the chance to play with decent wide receivers and young running backs who might be able to win a Super Bowl with him. I'm guessing San Fran wasn't offering enough money.

I'm guessing San Fran wasn't offering enough money.
The speculation I'd seen was that Peyton wanted to remain in the AFC so he wouldn't be a potential obstacle to his brother Eli's goal of playing in more Super Bowls and that he was attracted by the flexibility shown by Denver's offensive coordinator. Hopefully, John Elway has kept enough of his QB sense to encourage his coaches to give Peyton free rein to shape the offense the way he wants and to build a team around their new superstar.
