Well, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (my avatar and my second favorite fighter only after Fedor Emelianenko) lost a decision to Lyoto Machida tonight, though there are riots all over MMA forums claiming the fight was somehow fixed.  Shogun clearly won the fight 4 rounds to 1 IMO (or 49-46).  Shogun is the people's champ of the UFC LHW division.

lol, well i shouldn't say the fight itself was fixed; but perhaps the judges were told to give the fight to Machida if it went to decision (no doubt UFC marketing is trying to milk the "karate-kid" vibe Machida gives off for all it's worth).  Shogun was a 6 to 1 underdog, if Shogun won perhaps Vegas would have gone bankrupt? ***sigh*** well Dana White is saying there will be an immediate rematch; hopefully Shogun puts Machida to sleep to leave no doubt the second time around.

Fight facts:
http://fightmetric.com/fights/Machida-Shogun.html

So Shogun connects with more strikes overall (almost twice as much) as well as more powerful strikes, and attempts more takedowns (4-0) and still losses.

Ok, I have a hockey question. Why do so many people talk about how many shots Ovechkin takes like it's a good thing? To have a high scoring percentage is a good thing, but what is inherently good about simply taking a lot of shots?
Oh! I know this answer! (hockey mom x 2 decades AND more importantly, I have pets named Mario and Jaromir.)

1.  it could take a wild bounce and go in. 
2.  somebody can deflect a wild biscuit and light up a hack. 
3.  the goalie could have his vision blocked by a 250lb goon and let one in
4.  the goalie's caffeine/amphetamines/benzoylmethylecgonine (whatever makes him twitch) could be wearing off=slow reaction time=potential goal
5.  the galvanized rubber could hit an unpadded area of your opponent and make them limp slowly to the bench raising the morale and beer consumption of fans
6.  FOR A MILLION REASONS, IT COULD START A FISTICUFFS!

And...Ovechkin is a tool. How bout dem Guins!  ( Господин Ovechkin believes he has more talent than he does. The Pittsburgh Penguins are magnificent.)

We knew that Skippy (aka Jeff Reed) likes to pick fights with towel dispensers, and now we also know that he tackles like a sissy. Thankfully the Steelers won't lose this game because of his poor tackling ability.

so it's official:  Cairo vs. Algeria at 12:30PM NY time (which means it will be at 7:30 PM in Cairo, I think).

November 14th.  Egypt needs to win by three goals to advance to the world cup.  If they win only by two, there is a dead-heat tie on all accounts of the FIFA rules, to which FIFA rules say will result in drawing lots or another game due by November 18th at neutral soil (which is what makes this game so exciting).

If however Egypt won by only one goal, tied, or lost to Algeria in that game, no matter what, points add up in a fashion that Algeria will advance.

Scary circumstances, but the excitement is alive!  Can't wait!

If it doesn't go in on the first shot it often creates secondary scoring opportunities for himself or for his teammates. When you get the puck around the net, good things happen.

Let's hope they can be less sloppy than the Angels.  Errors on back-to-back sacrifice bunts in the 8th inning that allow the Yankees to score an unearned insurance run. Roll Eyes  Phew, that stinks!

Giants pitcher Hoyt Wilhelm hit a home run on his first at-bat in the major leagues.

He played for 21 seasons but never hit another homer.

Like the beginning golfer I heard about who hit a hole-in-one the first time he ever swung a club through a golf ball.  He ended up still shooting 200 through 18 holes, or something like that.

Yeah, Utley's two homers were impressive, as well as Cliff Lee's behind-the-back catch. Wow.

I am still unimpressed by the Yankees. This is the second time this postseason a player has been tagged out just standing near the base. Fundamentals, anyone?

Why am I a Yankees fan? Because you only have to watch them one month a year: October. Cheesy

In all honesty I'm not a big baseball fan. I enjoy the play-offs and the World Series. The Yankees make it easy to do so.  Grin

Last night they didn't look so hot. Hopefully they will rally tonight and beat the Sillies!

But the Yankees are Pedro's daddy.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Pedro is 11-11 lifetime against the Yankees with a 3.20 ERA while the Yankees are hitting  .211 against him.  Pedro's ERA at the old Yankee Stadium was 2.95.  Meanwhile, Cliff Lee's Postseason ERA is 0.54 (2 ER in 33 1/3 innings).

Good pitching always beats good hitting.   Wink

Actually, as much as I love baseball, I really wish they'd get back to having the World Series at the beginning of October. I think the playoffs are far too long; I'd prefer going back to simply giving the pennant to the team with the best record during the regular season, and going straight to the World Series. In my opinion, 162 games ought to be enough to determine the best team of the year.

Is the World Series going on right now? Really? I could care less. Well, at least the Yankees maintain some rich tradition. It's at least pretty cool to turn on the TV and watch a game being played at historic Yankee Stadium, where Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Joe Dimagio and others played. Oh wait, I forgot, yeah that's gone too now. Pro sports; how exciting.Roll Eyes

Well now, let's not make a blanket condemnation of all 20 year olds.

As far as purity, nothing in this current world is pure (except maybe for some modern day Saints). But as I mentioned on another thread, there are degrees of purity. I'm not arguing that college sports are pure, only that they are less impure than pro sports.

But most of all, it's just the environment and culture of college football that makes it so exciting in my opinion. Every school, from the largest to the smallest, has its own unique tradtion. The bands, the college campuses, the tailgating, the uniforms, the rivalries, etc. make college football so much fun. Kids leaving their hearts on the field just to win one game over an arch rival. I could go on and on. But ultimately it is purely subjective when it comes to why we like certain teams and certain sports. I guess that's what makes sports in general so much fun. Smiley

Until relatively recently, I wasn't even aware of what my University's athletic nickname was.  Tongue

(10) Oregon 47, (5) USC 20

RB LaMichael James 24 carries for 184 yards rushing
QB Jeremiah Masoli 13 carries for 164 yards rushing and 19/31 passing for 221 yards
392 team yards rushing against a Trojan defense that allowed an average of not quite 80 per game previously

613 yards total offense
47 points - the most ever allowed by any USC team coached by Pete Carroll

Ducks unbeaten in the Pac-10 after 5 conference games

GO DUCKS!!!

Yes bredren! Great win for Oregon. They always expose how overated USC is. But more than that, Oregon is good! You guys are building a solid program out there. Always a great crowd and a great environment. Oregon today reminds me of Washington in the days of Warren Moon. Congrats! Smiley

I just found out that USC has not won a game in Oregon (in Eugene against Oregon or in Corvallis against Oregon State) the last four years.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

That's an amazingly cool stat.

So tell me, who would the "O" rather beat- USC or Oregon State?

I have a question for Americans who are big into college sports.  Are these your alma mater?  Or you just cheer for certain teams like in pro sports?

Oregon State, definitely.  Nothing like beating our in-state rivals in what we call the Civil War.

I root for both University of Oregon and Oregon State University, even though I never graduated from either, simply because they're the two major universities in my state of residence.
