Stephen Colbert Weighs in on Tiki Barber (Fanhouse Backporch)

Apr 8th 2010 8:00PM Don't feel sorry for these women. Without getting into detail, I have personally known and met MANY athlete's wives and I can see why so many of their marriages fail. These women normally fall into one of two categories -- either they're the wife that's so caught up in the fame and fortune that they turn a blind eye to reality or they're the superwoman who can do a lot better, but for whatever reason (usually low self-esteem), they put up with an athlete's feeling of entitlement hoping he will change. While I feel for the latter, fewer fall into this group. Most athlete's wives would make you hate wealthy people. Some of them are so shallow that you almost feel sorry for them.

Whether they are a rookie or retired, the personality of these athlete's change very little. They may do bad things, but only because they didn't have the money to do it before. Their cheating and getting into trouble is of little surprise to the people that REALLY know them for who they REALLY are. It's more about the people around them who are too sheepish to keep them in check. People will only go as far as you let them.

Snowtape: best Internet radio app ever? (Download Squad)

Mar 16th 2010 8:45AM @TheOneAndOnlyJH...Now who's the caveman? You sound like a Windows fanboy. Foreign technology? Ever hear of Linux? I'd suggest it to you, but it's probably over your head.

Woods Disgraces Legacy, Soils Image (Fanhouse - Jay Mariotti)

Dec 3rd 2009 10:39AM Don't believe the hype. In a twisted way, Tiger's transgressions may actually garner him more support because there is a large population who can now identify with this "less-than-perfect" Tiger. His core fans will support him regardless because they care more about what he does on the golf course than what he does in his bedroom. The media has made Tiger a pariah because in an era of recession, record job losses and home foreclosures, misery likes company. Fans are like crabs in a pot and they tend to build celebrities up, just so they can break them down.

Tiger Woods Offers Apology, Sans Direct Admission, Via Web Site (Fanhouse Golf Blog)

Dec 2nd 2009 2:29PM You're an obvious fraud. Tiger Woods isn't the first athlete sponsored by Nike to cheat on his wife. So why did you wait until now to rally your troops for a boycott? If he's the reason you buy Nikes, then you are truly sad.

Truth is, most of us don't care what goes on in the bedrooms of consenting adults. It sucks to be his wife or daughter right now, but I am neither. I'm just a sports fan entertained by the talents of athletes for the brief periods they participate in their respective sports. That's it. Stop putting celebrities on pedestals. They are not gods.

NY Times op-ed on the hate that dare not text its name: iPhone rejection (TUAW.com)

Apr 6th 2009 7:00AM To each his own. I've read a lot of comments ragging on this woman for giving her opinion, authored by individuals seemingly ignorant to the fact that they sound just as biased in their rebuttal. If you like the phone great, but not everyone will. Unless you're Steve Jobs or an Apple employee whose employment hinges on the success of teh iPhone, don't take it so personal. Personally, I prefer the iPhone over the Blackberry and can type much faster on its touchcreen, but I also like that Blackberriees have MMS (which I only have on my iPhone via jailbreak) and true push email (which is only available on the iPhone via MobileMe or a Microsoft Exchange account). They both have their pros and cons, but neither is perfect.

Aug 8th 2008 10:06AM What a tool. He and his friends laughed at the developer. Looks like the developer got the last laugh. That's the funniest story I've heard in a while.

Xbox 360 failure rate at 16 percent? (Engadget)

Feb 14th 2008 4:00PM 16% is high? LOL! If anything, that 16% failure rate is optimistic because I read the number is closer to 30%.
