Your Daily Fix 1.24.07 [J. Mark English]

  • Terrell Owens denies taking shots at Bill Parcells. (I'm sorry but since when is calling your head coach a "grandmother", not taking a shot?)
  • ESPN's Page 2 ranks from 80 to 1, all of the Super Bowl teams to play in the mecca of championship games. The bookends are the 1979 Los Angeles Rams at 80, and the 1989 San Francisco 49ers come in at number 1. (Not sure if the Rams should be that low...true their record was poor for a SB team, but they had the lead on the Steelers - the dynasty Steelers - and had they held on to win, they would be no where near the 80 spot. )
  • The NFL Players Association will agree to stronger drug testing. (Shawne Merriman is still the greatest defensive player in the game...)
  • An 18 year old Met fan, who poised as a reporter, is banned from being anywhere near Shea.
  • Cliff Floyd is heading home, and will play for the Chicago Cubs. (The Mets will miss him.)
  • Disgraced DA Mike Nifong will face additional ethic charges.
  • Tiger Woods says he would skip the British Open to be there for the birth of his son. Carlos Delgado made a similar announcement, saying that he may miss opening day for this birth of his child.
  • Brendan Shanahan helps the East top the West in the NHL superskills contest. (But was anyone watching?)
  • Iona College loses again, in over time, and fall to 0-19 on the season.
  • Maria Sharapova advances to the semi-final in the Australian Open.
