Steve McNair isn't a Hall of Famer

I know this probably isn't the best time to go here, but I had to because we all know that there's a tendency to overstate people's greatness when they pass on, especially if it's early. There was some discussion of McNair's Hall of Fame worthiness when he retired, with the verdict coming down against. Now some chatter came up again, and it needs to be said definitively that he isn't, and that the sportswriters who choose not to vote for him aren't being racist. When you look at all the metrics that we can measure him by, he come up short across the board. No rings, no eye popping stats, a .500 playoff record, and only three Pro Bowls. The only things in his favor are his MVP award in 2003 and his 30,000 passing yards, which don't mean as much as they used to (28 other quarterbacks have at least 30,000 passing yards and only half of them are or will be Hall of Famers). He was very good, often great, but he just didn't pass the necessary benchmarks to cement his case.

That's right I am going to be the next heavyweight Champion of the world. I am like the new Mike Tyson except for the fact that I don't have any formal training and I prefer not to bite people ears (unless she is cute). Beyond that I have to be better than these tomato cans that Wladimir Klitschko has been knocking out for the last four years.

Although most boxing betting fans were expecting to see two heavyweight boxing fights this month, after both fights broke up, they'll have to settle for one.

Ruslan Chagaev was set for his much-anticipated rematch with Nikolay Valuev in Helsinki, Finland, while Wladimir Klitschko was supposed to faceoff with David Haye.

Instead, Haye and Valuev will get cut out of the equation and Klitschko and Chagaev will square off.

I was simply crushed when Mike Tyson's daughter Exodus had to be taken off life support and passed away a couple of weeks ago. Having a young daughter myself I could not imagine what type of trauma and hurt Mike was going through. Add on to the fact a lot of the media reporting the story did the unthinkable in including things about Mike's past that had no bearing to the tragedy at hand. You never get over something like that, but I was hoping Mike somehow some way was able to deal with it.

Mike Tyson is such a fascinating person that I find it amazing that he has even lived to be 42 years old. When I went and saw "The Hangover" (best comedy in years by the way) and there was Mike acting and acting well (his scenes are classics) I was thinking to myself I would have never imagine Mike doing this if you asked me five years ago.

For any parent there is nothing worse, short of death, than a child hurt or in danger. Imagine Mike Tyson's anguish at hearing the news that his 4 year old daughter,Exodus, is now seriously critical in St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix. The boxer-actor most notable for his various heavyweight titles,troubled marriage to actress,Robin Givens and rape scandal involving Rhode Island beauty queen, Desiree Washington recently acquired new found fame in his critically acclaimed documentary, Tyson, a no holds barred look at Tyson's troubled childhood and rise to world heavyweight fame by director,James Toback.

According to sources, the precocious little girl was watching TV with her 7 year old brother when she became entangled in a cord attached to the family's treadmill. The little boy found her with the cord around her neck after being sent by their mom to find her. The mother who had been cleaning in another room tried to revive Exodus while waiting for the ambulance to arrive after calling 911. Originally she reported the 'tragic accident' as an electrocution before changing it to a hanging.

Believe it or not I think Brian Kenny of ESPN and Floyd Mayweather are friends. They need a radio or TV show together because this is pure entertainment.

I will say this for Floyd people don't like to give him credit for anything and he made some solid points about Manny Pacquiao past losses as well as the differences with his fights with Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton as oppose to Pacquiao's recent domination of the same fighters.

Now I love that Brian Kinney doesn't take any crap from Floyd and raises some solid points himself especially asking why Floyd won't fight Shane Mosley and why he didn't wait to fight Manny Pacquiao.

This is how interviews should be. Not all that lovey dovey softball stuff that normally happens. Pure comedey This is RL approved.

I always tell people that Mike Tyson is probably the most misunderstood athlete of our time.

Any interview with him is fascinating and this is no different. From biting ears to being humble this is a must view.
