Sports: Morning Sports Shorts 4/13 

Stop me if you've heard this before: Mike Tyson promises a "train wreck." Opponent Kevin McBride promises to "shock the world." Two questions: (1) When did Mike last give us a fight that wasn't a train wreck? (2) Is there anything that could happen in this fight that could shock us? (Barring twelve rounds of clean, entertaining action).

Soccer player hit by flare: In Scotland they boo the Pope. In Italy they love the Pope, they just evidently hate the players. In Detroit they throw cups of beer at hated players. In Milan they love their beer, so they throw flares at hated players. Could someone please tell me where Europeans get the nerve to call Americans uncivilized? And if the rise of soccer in America means we have this kind of crap to look forward to, then I pray the sport never ascends above its current minor league level.

12 Games in '06?: Twelve regular season college football games could become a reality in 2006. I cheer now, but come September of next year, when I'm shelling out $60 to watch Texas beat up on SMU or some other patsy, I might think differently.
