Not surprising to me was the sports announcers scoring just over 40% on such a remedial test.

I believe that had he mentioned this wasn't his first rodeo there would have been a large outcry from rookie cowboys proclaiming how offensive his comments were.......

If they're identical, how can you tell the difference? There's nothing more tacky than wearing a day cup during a night game. Well, white umpire shirts after Labor Day might be worse...........

I can understand why they wouldn't call this in an MLB game, Manny. But in a game played by HS aged players, I think lifting and re-setting the free foot should probably be balked. Runners at that...

On most of the fields I work it's almost impossible for a pitcher to NOT lift his pivot foot and set it back down as he steps into the hole in front of the rubber. I know exactly the motion you're...

I'm having a hard time envisioning what "pulses his foot" means.
