Chat on First Take

John (Florida)

I think the yankees are in trouble. The way the Rays are playing right now is unbelievable. If the Rays keep it up the Yankees will have a tough time catching them. All these injuries this early in the season may be their downfall.

Dorrel foster white plains, ny [via mobile]

Skip why when Kobe shows u that he is the best player in the NBA u don't give him any love?

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Down 8-0 then 9-1 then 9-3 and scoring seven in the bottom of the 9th capping it with a grand slam. You can't make up stuff like that. Nice job, Brooks Conrad, and good morning, First Take chatters.

mod
  (10:03 AM)

how would a Rays/Marlins World Series go over?

Josh Hair (Michigan)

Will fans think any less of Urlacher now because of his comments

Jonas Chisolm (California)

How can i do something remotely close to what you and your coworkers do? What education/experience would i need? Thank You

mod
  (10:05 AM)

dude, this ain't a job fair, its a First Take chat...go back to class

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Mod: Pretty much like a lead balloon.

Umor (Detroit)

Morning Crew, TGIF

michael patterson (richmond va.)

sayle was wrong he call urlecker's name. right Skip

alex (dc)

I think a athlete needs to get on 1st and 10 and debate Bayless because he hardly knows what he is talking about when it comes to sports including the nationals who have a suprise for the nl east this season

Christina (Raleigh, NC)

I want Skips prediction to the most important question of the weekend, Will Jack kill the Smoke Monster and save the island(lost finale). He must pound the table while answering =)

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

The Rays baby!!!

mike randle (chicago il)

urlacher just needs to grow some marbles if he doesnt like being talked about than maybe he should do more yelling at his teamates than legends of the game if anything they should use it as motivation

Umor (Detroit)

Bones season finale was crap.

THE_REAL_FAN ((TWITTER))

mod, what's the next road event for First Take? I would love to see Jay and Skip commentate a game.

mike randle (chicago il)

morning first take crew

RJ (Boston)

Urlacher is sounding like a bigger prima donna than Cutler at this point.

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

The two Rays fans are already in line for playoff tickets.

Lisa (New Mexico)

Floyd Landis makes me sick. Numerous cyclists contributed to the defense fund for this guy, he wrote a book, he has been in a four year legal fight, and NOW he decides this is the time to clear his conscience about his use of PED's. He also decided this was the time to through all the people who helped him, and testified on his behalf under the bus. As for Armstrong, until someone comes up with a trainer who actually injected him, someone verifies the existence of DNA evidence, a manufacturer like Balco has records on everything he did, I refuse to believe he doped.

Umor (Detroit)

Another good game out of Bonderman. The Tigers starting three are getting better every week. Still don't have a 4 or 5, But the Bullpen can carry them for awhile.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Who are the comeback kids with the most walkoffs this year.... Atlanta Braves what a ninth inninng last night that was off the chain.

THE_REAL_FAN ((TWITTER))

Good Morning!!! How is everyone doing?

Umor (Detroit)

J.B. That's the wurst collapse of a team. Give up 6 runs. Thats Insane.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Who has the best lineup in baseball....Tampa Rays.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Who has the best starting rotation in baseball....Tampa Rays.

michael ((big blue nation))

the braves are not just Heyward Skip,they will win a world series,beating the Rays in .7.

Reischea
  (10:14 AM)

Morning nation. Hope everyone is having a great start to the day... Gonna be a PHENOMENAL Friday. Beautiful day outside. What's on tap for us today?

Umor (Detroit)

AdaM G. Who has the fewest fans in their stadium...Tampa Rays.

mike randle (chicago il)

the question of who is gonna be a star first in washington wall or strawsberry that easy strawsberry already throwing no no cant get more better than that

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Umor: That game gave me some hope that the Braves might contend in spite of Bobby Cox.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

Skip- the Magic are done - the janitor has his eye on them already!!!!

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Umor: The thing is that the guy who hit the HR replaced Chipper Jones late in the game. No way the older, less productive Chipper hits a walk-off grand slam.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

The Magic will win tomorrow night and the series will get interesting boys.

AJ (Winnipeg)

Start to a long weekend for me bring on the NBA playoffs! Boston's going to sweep the magic

Mike (Atlanta)

he tweeted it the "hacker" is total BS.

Reischea
  (10:17 AM)

Mr. Randle, I hope you are being haha funny as in Mets couldn't wait for Strawberry. Cuz it is Strasburg.

Brett (Boise)

Maybe the Hacker was the fake J.B.?

Umor (Detroit)

Morning Reischi. Your happy it's friday this morning.

Rich (Chicago)

A Rays Marlins series? no one outside of florida would watch heck florida doesnt even watch their teams!!

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Umor what place are the Tigers in ? Uhh thank you.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

We don't have the fewest fans fool

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

This guy talking bout my rays with his 42 friends on facebook buhahaha Jay what up dog

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

We got the cow bells ringing are you listening

mod
  (10:20 AM)

I need more cowbell

Umor (Detroit)

Adam 2nd for now. And will past the twins.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

Adam G. (Tampa, FL) wow the C's are really gonna go back to the garden and disappoint??? really??? get ya broom out buddy

mod
  (10:21 AM)

really annoys me that we have to blah, blah, blah about these NBA playoffs instead of them just PLAYING THE GAMES! Lets go, throw the ball up...whats with the 3 days off?!?

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

We'll see Jason007 Jameer will be on fire in game 3 so will Rashard.

Brett (Boise)

Adam G...Tigers are tied for 1st in their division.

Josh (Michigan)

Can We just skip to the Finals already. we already know The Celtics and Lakers are going to meetand im convinced just about every superstar in sports took steriods

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

suns got the janitor ready to sweep them too

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Jalen whats good homie

newt (portland)

good morning nation! I love fridays. Fresh salmon in the fridge and more great hockey later. can it get much better?

THE_REAL_FAN ((TWITTER))

mod, do you think the games should be every other day?

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

I know, mod. I mean let's just get those NBA blow outs out of the way, right?

Mike (Atlanta)

adam g with 4 posts in a row...is that a record or something?

mod
  (10:25 AM)

I'll try to scale him back

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Who cares Brett

AJ (Winnipeg)

Rondo will take control of his team and he will force his team to win.

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

Dwight Howard has had the rebound and shot blocking lead for two years in a row since they started keeping shot blocking stats. They didn't keep that stat during the Chamberlain, Russell, Thurmond, Bellamy days.

Umor (Detroit)

Adam G. With y'all record. it's should be a sellout every night.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

I'm with you mod how much rest do they need.

mike randle (chicago il)

lets face it the only way the suns have a chance of beating the lakers. is if the get 200 kids to help them from the mls game. well maybe it still wont help but at least it would be interesting to watch

Umor (Detroit)

Habs came back to life last night.

Rich (Chicago)

WHEN the Lakers sweep the Sun's we had better see Skip eatin the Crow Crunch like Broussard did!!

newt (portland)

I love all the days off the nba takes. it just makes you all mad and the sport look more rediculous every day off. GO Hockey!!

Umor (Detroit)

The NBA playoffs are longer than the NHL playoffs.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

I used to go to Rays games for free when Manny was on the Sox. I saw them at their worst now I'm content with how those young guys have grown and filled that stadium. Back then I could count the fans on my fingers, now they're almost selling out.

mike randle (chicago il)

a reisha dicki V came on this morning and said that john told him that he is staying in kentucky. so is it safe to put the lebron-cali dual to rest now. or can we just not trust john like alot of the big name couches when they get money in front of them?

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

if you build it they will run

AJ (Winnipeg)

All the suns need to do is play some defense if they can hold the lakers to under like a hundred points kind of improbable.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

mod - your right - why the hell we gotta wait till Saturday - its like the nba is purposely giving these about to be swept teams some rest so they can hopefully win one game

THE_REAL_FAN ((TWITTER))

Does LeBron sign with a team before Brett Favre commits to another year?

kobe bryant (chillin in LA)

I need the rest. im old

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

The games are in St. Pete Umor, it's kind of a drive for some Tampa fans.

Dustin (everett,wa)

Hey Griffey woke up last night, to bad his teams still locked in the basement

Jack (Chicago)

The NBA playoffs are way too short...yawwwwn.

newt (portland)

hey my auto update is slower than the flyers skate!

mike randle (chicago il)

you can forget they have onlly played about eighty some games before the playoff's not to metion if the played for the usa team these players need time to give there body to heal

Woodsie (Concord, NH)

To short for Chicago, LeBron anyone

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

personally as slick as these bio chemist are these days I think Armstrong was on something

Chad (Las Vegas)

REAL- YES. Lebron will pick a team before Favre decides.

AJ (Winnipeg)

and the NHL playoffs are more exciting eve nthought I am a basketball fan I can admit that.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

How bout the Canadiens bouncing back!

mike randle (chicago il)

mod the playoffs are rough. you got players like gasol and nash with black eyes. bynum hooping around on one leg. and kobe got more injuries than grant hill in his first three season. they need time to recover so the game can be exciting.

Reischea
  (10:36 AM)

Well RealFan, pretty funny question. The only reason its a yes, is Favre doesn't have to show to Vikings camp till a week or two before the season starts. Thank Goodness for deadlines in NBA.

Arron (Saudi Arabia)

yes they will run indeed

Umor (Detroit)

The Magic better win tonight, Else the joke gonna be I watch the Orlando Magic in the playoffs. and against the Celts they Dissapeared.

Chad (Las Vegas)

Good Morning everybody. Thank goodness it's Friday. Too bad the winds will kick up to 40 plus mph tonday and then the temp will drop 20 degrees tomorrow. Doesn't look like a great weekend for golf, but I'll take it anyway.

Woodsie (Concord, NH)

Jesus Shuttlesworth and his jumper will bring the C's to LA

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

the nba should turn the first round back to the best out of five

Reischea
  (10:37 AM)

Amen 007!

Rich (Chicago)

newt (portland)The NHL is worse they play both conf final games 1 & 2 on the same night talk about lame that takes the cake the NHL has no clue!!

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

Skip ate plenty of crow when the Spurs lost, I am sure he will eat it if needful after the suns lakers series.

Brett (Boise)

Adam G. Rays are averaging 22,000 and that number has dropped every game. It's hardly full.

Brett (Boise)

Adam G's lack of sleep is making him delirious today.

Chad (Las Vegas)

The NBA should cut it's season by 10 games.

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

There really should have been an NBA game last night. Can't believe how much time they waste. Is there any wonder why people become disinterested?

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

d Howard nick name should not be super man it should be overrated shoulders

Umor (Detroit)

J.B. I saw the high light. That kid been strugling since 2001 to get to the big leagues. And now that he's finally there. Grand slam. Insane.

Arron (Saudi Arabia)

Jesus Shuttlesworth is my idol

mike randle (chicago il)

this just in the cubs lost another game. some people have been waiting for a hundred years for them to win the world series. i have only been waiting for 24. but i am debating if i want to pass this pain down to my kids. think i am gonna start looking for a new team. i hear st louis is nice.

Arron (Saudi Arabia)

In my honest opinion, they should prolong it by 10 games my friend

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

One of the best finishes I can remember, Umor. Lots of fun to follow that one.

Dustin (Everett,wa)

Farve is a champ and more important to his team then james is to any team

Tomwit NJ [via mobile]

Speaking of eating Crow, I think Armstrong needs to flatten Landis and then his tires.

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Mike (Chicago): Hockey gets one day off between games and they get beat up as much as if not more than NBA guys.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

MOD - 3 years ago I watched a special in where these chemist created a steroid that makes a human grow at the cellular level and the rats they were experimenting on looked like they would make a grown man jump on the kitchen table with a broom screamin like a girl

Chad (Las Vegas)

Armstong has already eaten Crow.

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Chad you live in Las Vegas. So what if you cant golf. Theres lots better stuff to do. Do you like poultry? Try the chicken ranch.

csmoot (norristown,pa)

my yankees is not dead yet, remember last year we started slow and wound ws champs.second the celtics smell blood and will close out at home!!!

Chad (Las Vegas)

That's why dinosaurs went extinct. They couldn't play baseball.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

RC I know why your laughing

Rich (Chicago)

Cant wait for Rampage v Evans!! Rampage gonna shut that punk up once and for all!! I got Rampage in a KO

THE_REAL_FAN ((TWITTER))

Reischea, good point! The Vikings should put a deadline on Favre.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

good AM Reischea - looking good as usual today

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

As dirty as cycling has been proven to be the last few years, I wouldn't doubt that Landis is as right as Canseco was for baseball. Armstrong probably was dirty, but so was everyone else it looks like from past suspensions in the sport so maybe the playing field was level, you think?

csmoot (norristown,pa)

can doug collins turn this team around?

mike randle (chicago il )

yeah mod you have paul with a black eye. steve nash only has one eye. bynum running around on one leg. and kobe got more injuries than grant hill had his entire career. they need time to rest so you cant see fourty point games like the other night

AJ (Winnipeg)

You got to remember rashad still hasnt loss outside of the Machida fight.

Jake (Chicago)

St. Louis is nice? It is like living in a mouth - smells funny, humid, and hot. Mike Randle...we don't need you here in Chicago, feel free to pack up and take that depressing drive down 55.

AJ (Winnipeg)

every proffesional sport should cut their seasons down andd the nba is the least of its worries. MLB plays like 180 games

Woodsie (Concord, NH)

SuperMan is goin to the bank, to bad there is nothing to cash in. SWEEP

Arron (Saudi Arabia)

One time when I was just a little guy, I dunked my first basketball on my 3-foot high basketball net. It was the greatest feeling I've felt to this day. I'm sure Kobe must feel the same whenever he dunks

Derek (Michigan)

I can't believe it is taking so long to talk about LeBron. Can someone please explain to me why we have to hear about him everyday. Plenty of other sports news out there.

RJ (Boston)

Mike, I grew up a Cardinals fan and have witnessed 5 WS contests... 2 of which they won. St. louis is nice. Yes. It is.

Reischea
  (10:47 AM)

Well Mike, Nick Saban told the national media he wasn't leaving for Alabama, that he was staying as the Dolphins head coach. Where was he two days later from that!?

newt (portland)

Derek(mich) Theres your Labron talk buddy. Happy now? Skip doent know much outside of nba, tiger, and sox/yanks.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Lebron and Wade would dominate the East.

mod
  (10:52 AM)

they already do

RJ (Boston)

Hockey more than any of the others should shorten its season. Play up their seasonal specialty as the strength and people will romantisize it again. Nobody outside Philly, Chgo, NoCal and Canada is still watching the NHL right now.

Lou (St. Lou)

Jake..... Jake... Jake..... We will take our muddy old river and our 9 WS over your drunken lounge act in Wrigleyville any day. Enjoy your next hundred years of beating yourselves up.

Dustin (Everett,Wa)

As long as you battle cancer and win u can't be accused.It's not like he played a sport "America" loves so either way lance is the only person that knows the truth

newt (portland)

Everyone ahould move to the west coast where there isnt any humidity and you can catch a game before midnight!

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Morning RC

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

I say let Favre show up whenever he wants if he can get them to the Super Bowl.

Serg (Sacramento)

Rampage will knock out evans in 2nd round. I pitty the fool

Chad (Las Vegas)

WHOA-mike randle (chicago) just committed blasphemy. You CANNOT chear for St. Louis if you are a true Cubs fan.

Rich (Chicago)

@Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)All skip did was make excuses on how Manu was hurt he didnt eat any crow he never does!!

tomwit nj [via mobile]

If Favre can leave Green Bay then LeBron can leave Cleveland.

Chad (Las Vegas)

There's no ice on the ground even in Canada in May/June. Hockey does need to shorten its season.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

Woodsie (Concord, NH) SWEEEEEEEEP!!!!

mike randle (chicago il )

J.b i dont see any 7 foot players 295 pounds in hockey banging around guys half there size. if crosby had to take that kind of a beating on a daily basis i am sure he would have somthing to say about that

RJ (Boston)

Jake, We'll keep out oven baked humidity, our stinky river and our 9 WS titles. You just keep beating yourselves up at the frat house otherwise known as Wrigley Field. Enjoy your next 100 hundred years, loser.

Chad (Las Vegas)

No talk about interleague baseball games?

stacy (georgetown.ky)

hey reischea how's going? hey do the dallas cowboys win the super bowl?

mike randle (chicago il )

could u amaging lebron james or shaq playing hockey. i am sure there would be more injuires if they had to get check hits bye guys that fast and strong everyday. thats why they need the rest

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

I'm so sick of this local sports radio dude down here still bashing Lane Kiffin its like dude we live in BAMA country what the hell do you fare about Tennessee?

Chad (Las Vegas)

Favre will return then retire after the 1st game when the Saints leave another set of bruises all over his body.

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

Going out on a limb here but I can't see LeBron leaving Cleveland if he is really serious about winning a championship unless he is also willing to take a lot less money and go to somewhere like the Lakers or Spurs and not affect their salary cap.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

I mean Wade and Lebron together mod...smh

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

We've got some Interleague play starting today. There's a topic we failed to address. What match ups are we all excited to see?

mod
  (10:57 AM)

not the usual intriguing geographic matchups this weekend- even Yanks/Mets is flat as the Mets are awful and the Yanks are struggling/injured

Rich (Chicago)

@ReischeaThat is right you can never trust what any of these coaches say!!

RJ (Boston)

Mike, (about Hockey) Ever heard of Zdeno Chara, Tyler Myers, Chris Pronger? They DO attack Crosby every chance they get. Hockey is way more physical than BBall.

newt (portland)

Cubs v rangers!!!!

AJ (Winnipeg)

The NHL doesn't need to shorten its season if anything it needs to cut out some of the teams to make the league stronger.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Nice spanish accent RC ahah

Chad (Las Vegas)

Angels vs Cardinals could be a WS preview.

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

Hey mod, how can Wade and James be dominating the East if their teams are out of the playoffs?

RJ (Boston)

Jake, Go read Chad's WS Preview post again. And Remember. Your team will NEVER be in this discussion..... But keep enjoying the Wrigley beers. 'Cause really, THAT"S what being a fan is all about ... in chicago.

tomwit nj [via mobile]

If this guy divorced his wife she would lose her Will Power. Probably gain weight.

Rich (Chicago)

@stacyNo one cares about the boys right now!!

Dmac (Everett,wa)

If lebron cared soley about winning he'd take less money to play for a contender.He'll make tons of money outside the game so a max deal is just greed to a degree. Of course he'll sign with a team that'll pay him a lot, but I say go to orlando and win titles for the rest of his career

Chad (Las Vegas)

RJ- Before 03 people were saying the same thing about the Red Sox. Cubs fans will get there...one day.

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

Who cares about Indy when Duke and North Carolina are playing in lacrosse this weekend and Cornell takes on Army.

Mike (Atlanta)

Did we all just get invited to will powers wedding? Hawaii? Im there.

Serg (Sacramento)

Eastern Conference is weak, he can dominate it all year long and when playoffs come: gone fishing!

AJ (Winnipeg)

Suns-Celtics finals is my dream finals!

mod
  (11:03 AM)

It'll only be in your dreams, unfortunately

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

who care about lacrosse

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

anyone going to macgruber? Looks good

Blueman (INDY)

Calvin Indy 500 will draw half a million people at the event,Did lacrosse draw half a million people all year?

Umor (Detroit)

Pen Drop, Arrggh ya miss.

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

I'll have the chicken

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Red Sox/Phillies might be an interesting pairing.

Chad (Las Vegas)

AJ-It's called a dream for a reason.

newt (portland)

Does dallas really need a hockey team? does carolina, florida, or god forbid Poenix? spread the great players back north and have some of the best sport around

Chad (Las Vegas)

Lacrosse doesn't draw half a million viewers much less fans.

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

Utah needs Hockey so we can dominate that too

AJ (Winnipeg)

Sometimes dreams can come true!

newt (portland)

Lacross is fake hockey

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

By the way, what happens to all the pens Jay drops through that hole, or is it a "black hole"?

Reischea
  (11:06 AM)

It's a moveable set with a base Danny, so there are probably 100 pens trapped in there.

AJ (Winnipeg)

Lebrontosarus needs a change of scenery he will never win a ring with what he has in place in Cleveland. Either he changes team or his team changes players.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

The Lakers will take game 3 off and win in 5.

Ronnie Jackson (Warner Robins, GA)

Now I can?t sit here and say Lance Armstrong have ever taken PED's or any other illegal substance but there is a lot of questions and doubt surrounding him. FIRST, he won the Tour de France (the superbowl of cycling) 7 TIMES!!!! Now, not only did he win all those times, he won while fighting and beating cancer. ????? SECOND, There has always been speculation rumors and doubts surrounding him and banned substances. Now for someone who says they have always been clean, why s your name always coming up? ?????? THIRD, yea Landis has lied and FLEXED like none other over the last few years, I just got the feeling he knows a lot more than we do and some of those things about lance may be true........ These are just a few reasons Im starting to doubt lance more and more. I recognize he is one of the all time great athletes we have had but we would have to rethink where he really is among the great sport figures.

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

Recover the pens, have Jay sell them on e-bay with a certificate of authenticity and give the money to the Jimmy V foundation.

Rich (Chicago)

@Hayden Utah dominates anything? your funny!!

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

Other than Will Power, can anyone name 5 Indy drivers? Indy is dead. Nascar is what matters now in automobile racing.

Brett (Boise)

Hayden, you have hockey.

RJ (Boston)

Baseball has surived the loss of many traditions. It survived the Black Sox. Survived segregation. Surivived astroturf. Survived Pete Rose' situation. Survived a Series-less season. Surived steroids. Survived Red Sox nation becoming the new Yankees. Mark my words though. The one tradition it cannot do without.... CUBS LOSE. The day they win, is the day baseball dies. Watch.

Mike (Atlanta)

holy long post batman! mod did you actually read that?

mod
  (11:10 AM)

heck no

Reischea
  (11:10 AM)

Calvin:Scott DixonTony KanaanDanica PatrickHelio CastronevesDario FranchittiJust had to answer the challenge is all :-)

Chad (Las Vegas)

Whoever posted Ronnie Jackson (GA) needs to be suspended for a day for allowing such a long post in.

Reischea
  (11:11 AM)

Chad it was me. Sometimes I give you guys a little breathing room is all.

Chad (Las Vegas)

RC-you forgot Marco Andretti and Sarah Fischer.

Blueman (INDY)

Someone talk Jalen into doing an hour chat sometime during the NBA Finals.

RJ (Boston)

Cubs Lose is the last and most important baseball tradition. When it dies there will be no more stories. Baseball will just be a boring old game.

Brett (Boise)

Calvin W. Tony Kanaan, Danica Patrick, Ryan Brisco, Marco Andretti, Dario Franchitti.......Need more?

AJ (Winnipeg)

you just know Helio Castrooneves from dancing with the stars :P

newt (portland)

It seems to be surviving the DH too. boo the DH!

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

he just posts, ya'll are the ones reading

Blueman (INDY)

Events like Indy or Kentucky Derby are about the EVENT.Most people don't follow horse racing will watch The derby.Same with Indy 500.

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

Derby pre race show is rediculous

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

Reischea-Great you named 5 Indy racers, you and most people can name more nascar drivers than Indy drivers. Plus, you probably googled it before you posted.

mike randle (chicago il)

yeah the play a 180 gmes. but if you a right fielder do you really use any energy. i mean i could stand around and wait for a pop fly and catch it. is that really demanding. the need rest A.J

Brett (Boise)

Newt....Dallas, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Anaheim all have Stanley Cups. If you really want to have hockey be a legit sport it needs to be nationwide.

Rich (Chicago)

@Hayden MacGruber Im there looks funny

AJ (Winnipeg)

Mike: Its not demanding that exactly why I wonder why its so long why do we need to watch the same guys standing around a field 180 times a year

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

the Suns better take grant hill off of Kobe for he break that ankle again and jalen I got one word for you SWEEEEP!!!!!!!!

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Step away for a minute and someone starts throwing around Indy Car names while another thinks Utah dominates sports. I'm afraid to leave again!

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

they dont make many funny movies anymore it seems. I still need to see hot tub time machine though

AJ (Winnipeg)

J.B. it got wild in here while you were gone lol

Hayden (Logan, Utah)

I was being a little sarcastic, but hey, soccer, we win, basketball, we win, thats all we got so...

Danny (Tonasket, Wa.)

I want to believe in the Rays but at the end of the season, it will probably be the Yankees again. Rats

Blueman (INDY)

Rays need to get as far ahead as possible,Yanks and Sox will eventually get healthy and make a run.

newt (portland)

this auto updat is slower than prince fielder

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

J.B. You are just mad because PA dominates in bad baseball teams (Pirates) and underachieving hockey and college football teams (Penguins and Pitt).

Reischea
  (11:22 AM)

Well, he is also the defending Indy 500 champion AJ, and he did avoid some serious legal issues last year right before getting back on the track for 'The Greatest Spectacle in Racing'.

Jake (Chicago)

Cubs fans only being interested in drinking beers, one of the biggest misconceptions in MLB. We have some of the best fans in baseball...say what you will Cardinals fan, I think it shows character to remain a Cubs fan. Maybe I'm crazy, but with the farm system, an owner who actually has a face...I think the Cubs will be contending again very soon.

jason007thomas (Huntsville,Al.)

Reischea - please tell Jalen to get on here and chat with us pleeeeease!

Reischea
  (11:24 AM)

007, Jalen's debating duties to deal with. But he did say hit him up on Twitter @ Jalen Rose, he'll respond to questions there...

AJ (Winnipeg)

so if my CFL team were winners(which thier not) I could say my town was dominate?

RJ (Boston)

When did the Jazz ever win an NBA title?? Utah is like the NBA Minnesota Vikings, or Buffalo Bills.

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Hayden: Kind of a stretch using soccer and basketball, don't you think? But hey, you do live in a beautiful state, so you've got that going for you, which is nice.

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Recap of an auto race: A bunch of guys made a bunch of left hand turns and got back to where they started about three hours later.

newt (portland)

If 1st and ten wants to keep talking nba. jalen should replace a guy who never played. (skip)

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing is the Daytona 500.

Steve (Chicago)

It is funny to hear Jalen Rose say LBJ should go to Miami. His hatred of the Bulls remains to this day...can't take the Detroit out of Jalen. The only classless thing he ever did was when he was dealt to the Bulls during his career. Acted like a big baby.

J.B. (Dunmore, PA)

Calvin: First off, the only pro PA team I root for is the Penguins, who are only a year removed from the Stanley Cup. I hate the Steelers. As for college sports, Penn State football so I also despise Pitt Panther football. I'm really not one of those people that believes you must root for teams from your home state.

newt (portland)

Anyone need some fresh spring chinnok? Ill be on the river in a few. trollin for salmon is the best method.

Mike (Atlanta)

Quachez(The Great) (MISSISSIPPI)

Umor (Detroit)

Gonna be cold busted when Lebron breaks those grandmas hearts.

Did they finally integrate the golden girls?

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

Most people who say you don't have to root for teams in your state have only lousy teams to root for in their state.

Reischea
  (11:36 AM)

Why you guys just taking shots today Calvin.... get'im nation.

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Do these ladies have a defibrilator with them? I mean to send out with that cook and its heart healthy recipes.

Reischea
  (11:37 AM)

OK Tomwit, I will admit, my waistline began to grow just from listnening, but that's what grandma's are for. They don't make healthy meals, they make feel good, comfort food meals.

AJ (Winnipeg)

Everybody needs to open your eyes and see the CFL is better than arena league or the UFL

jonny (bh, MI)

Andover High School represent, Dana!!

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

Maybe because he wants the Chiefs to trade him to a team that is better, most teams are better than the Chiefs-well, maybe not the Bucs.

Umor (Detroit)

Reischi we been like this all morning. Just a bit cranky today.

Barbara (sacramento)

you are right Reischea, we grandmas do for our children and grandchildren and anyone else. we have unconditional love for everyone. anyone that has grandkids will tell you that when there kids get in trouble they run to grandma for help

Reischea
  (11:40 AM)

That's right Barbara. Unfortunately, I lost both my grandmas' many many years ago...so much love to all out there.

Brett (Boise)

AJ, At least the UFL and Arena leagues could come up with different names for each of their teams.

AJ (Winnipeg)

what about them blue jays?

Reischea
  (11:41 AM)

I've noticed.. seems a little woosah is in order eh Umor!?

Chad (Las Vegas)

IF the BCS strips USC of the 04 BCS title they should split it between Auburn and Oklahoma.

Blueman (INDY)

Barbabra you evidently never met my grandmother she was mean,hateful lady.

RJ (Boston)

That's all the BCS needs now. A split title on the books. HA!!

Barbara (sacramento)

i will adopt you Reischea. i love everyone. those that have evil thoughts will be sorry later in life.

Umor (Detroit)

I blame Urlacher. All Gayle said was the truth.

Chad (Las Vegas)

RJ-They kind of already have one in 2003 with LSU getting the BCS and USC getting the AP. OH WAIT USC will probably be stripped of that title as well.

Reischea
  (11:45 AM)

Yes, I know its going down... but going back after the fact... no one remembers what was taken away...

Umor (Detroit)

Hey Reischi, I just finished up frying up some chicken. that should've calm me down.

Reischea
  (11:46 AM)

thank you Barbara... much love to you!

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Why does comfort food make you so uncomfortable, Reischa. Lately I have to ask my wife if my shoes are tied or not.

Reischea
  (11:48 AM)

Comfort food doesn't make me uncomfortable. You have to do it in moderation, like all things in life. I can't do the comfort food thing more than twice a month... you're just asking for trouble otherwise.

Chad (Las Vegas)

I am LOVING Reggie Bush. He has helped my Saints win the SB and now he will help bring down USC. I would send that man a gift if he hasn't gotten so many gifts already.

newt (portland)

if by comfort food you mean dumplings and cornbread? count me in!

Reischea
  (11:49 AM)

Newt, I am proud to say, I make a mean cornbread FROM SCRATCH, thank you very much!

Reischea
  (11:50 AM)

Actually, I make a darn good mac & Cheese too... Ask Jalen!

tomwit nj [via mobile]

For the record I have 6 grandkids and one en route. Alot for 51 right?

Umor (Detroit)

Gotta go, have a great weekend reischi, peace out J.B. and crew. Adam G. we still cool.

Chad (Las Vegas)

I make a mean Jalepeno/Cheddar cornbread. I will have to make some this eweekend thanks to this chat.

Reischea
  (11:51 AM)

that sounds good Chad!

AJ (Winnipeg)

Am I missing out that I have never had Conrbread?

Reischea
  (11:51 AM)

AJ, indeed you are.

newt (portland)

Reggie Bush (NOLA)

That's OK. I don't nee anymore gifts. I already have plenty. One thing I do need is Kim back.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

Yeah we are Umor it's all love bruh bruh

AJ (Winnipeg)

Calvin W (Clearwater, FL)

So you've made Jalen some mac n cheese before?

Reischea
  (11:54 AM)

calvin, I brought him and Mike Hill some when I made it for Thanksgiving.

Barbara (sacramento)

Hey Reischea what is your favorite food?

Reischea
  (11:55 AM)

Barbara, I love a plethora of stuff. But when it comes to soul food... my dads fried chicken and fried Catfish. Everytime I go home, I put in a standing order for one or the other. Not to mention, he is a grill master in my humble opinion, no one beats his ribs.

Adam G. (Tampa, FL)

I'm hungry now thanks Barb and Reisch
