Spanning the Globe

1. They don't make 'em like they used to

A's-Tigers 1972 ALCS, game 5:

Reggie Jackson pulled his hamstring sliding into home plate on a double steal (he missed the World Series) and center fielder George Hendrick, moments before catching the final out, was pelted in the back with a whiskey bottle.

2. Great moments in analogy

2006 Raiders-49ers game:

Maybe Johnny Rotten said it best in 1978, when he and the Sex Pistols ended their failed U.S. concert tour at San Francisco's old Winterland.
Their final song: "No Fun."
His final words to a disgusted crowd: "Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?"
