Favorite snippets from today's Sports Guy...

When it comes right down to it, the most ridiculous ending in sports movie history has to be "The Fan" -- DeNiro somehow becoming the home plate umpire, then calling Snipes out on an inside-the-park home run during a monsoon, followed by the two of them fighting at home plate, then DeNiro getting gunned down by a SWAT team. That will never be topped. They should have thrown in an additional ending where the entire incident spurs the player's union and baseball owners to bury the hatchet, then hammer out an sophisticated, intelligent Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Now that Will Ferrell has finally left "SNL," we need to start thinking about where the "VH1 Storytellers: Neil Diamond" sketch ranks among the greatest SNL sketches of the past three decades. Doesn't it have to be Top 5 or am I crazy? "This next song I wrote after I killed a drifter to get an erection. Forever in blue jeans!!!"

Let's face it: You can separate the world into two groups of people: the ones who heard about that Mets pitcher having an anxiety attack/seizure from smoking marijuana and said, "Man, what an idiot!", and the people who heard about it and said, "Man, that must have been some gooooooooooooood s---."

Why didn't Fox's "Beyond the Glory" special on Hakeem Olajuwon mention his four-year stint as Adebici on "Oz"?

Could somebody send Jack Black the "E! True Hollywood Story" episodes on Chris Farley and John Belushi before it's too late?

You know, the U.S. Senior Open would be much more exciting to watch if they prohibited the competitors from peeing until they finished a round.
