Stormy Weather Sports Reporter (paca)

I mentioned once before that I pretty much only report sports news when things are going well. For instance, the last time I mentioned the Nashville Predators (hockey), they had moved into a tie for first place in the Western Conference with the Detroit Red Wings. I kept true to my word and did not bother to mention that they fell after that and ended up in 4th place in the Conference, heading into the NHL playoffs.

Well, now I am going to break my promise of only reporting good stuff and inform you all, and I know you all care deeply about this, that the Predators have lost their first round of the playoffs to the San Jose Sharks and are now out. Season Over. Done. In other lousy news, it is looking more and more like Steve McNair, the QB for the Tennessee Titans, will no longer be a Titan. There's a slim possibility, but not much of one. He costs so much against the salary cap that the Titans organization even locked him out of working out at the facility in case he got an injury. Can you imagine the 49ers locking Joe Montana out or the Jets locking out Joe Namath? Anyway, to add insult to injury, apparently the team with the most interest in McNair is none other than the Baltimore Ravens.

If you are a Titans fan, you hate, hate, hate the Baltimore Ravens. The coach Brian Billick is an arrogant jack-ass. It was bad enough when our premier cornerback and receiver went to play for them last year. But McNair?! That's like the Red Sox trading Babe Ruth to the Yankees. (Not that McNair has earned the cred of Babe Ruth or Joe Montana, but you get the idea.)

Sports suck.
