Over the next few months, Talk-Sports is gonna name the Baseball Chicks of the Web. Fans can submit videos on YouTube showing us that you are a baseball chick. Include the words talksportsnet baseballchick (baseballchick is one word) in the title or description of the video to be eligible for selection (actually... so we can easily find them).
Here are some ideas for your videos.
We will select 2 to 10 baseball chicks, depending on how many videos we get. Those selected will be official Talk-Sports Baseball Chicks and they will be featured on the Talk-Sports website. The Baseball Chicks will then compete online to become the Ultimate Baseball Chick.
All selected Baseball Chicks will receive free bronze memberships on Talk-Sports. The Ultimate Baseball Chick will receive 2 tickets to a baseball game at their local MLB ballpark. If you would like to co-sponsor this contest by adding to our prize pool, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I continue to get more and more request from athletes to have their girlfriend forums on Talk-Sports closed permanently. Many have offered cash, but I don't feel right about taking money to close forums. That could be construed as extortion. I have decided that any player may get their girlfriend forum replaced by a video of the player talking to their Talk-Sports fans.
Send the video to email@example.com. When we verify the authenticity and approve the content, then we will upload the video to the Talk-Sports YouTube profile (http://www.youtube.com/user/talksportsnet) and embed the video on the girlfriend webpage. Comments will be disabled from this webpage and users will be redirected to the fan forum.
Top forwards this season in the NHL.
Northwest Preseason Preview
Randy: This gives the Leafs more experience on defense. They already had depth, but inexperienced depth. This also paves the way for moving a defense, if the right deal presents itself.
TSN.ca: The New York Islanders have traded forward Mark Parrish and Brent Sopel to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Denis Grebeshkov and Jeff Tambellini.
Randy: This is a good deal for the Kings, a couple rental players for a couple prospect. Grebeshkov is a long shot and Tambellini won't be a star. Both Parrish and Sopel are quality players.
TSN.ca: The New York Rangers have traded forward Ville Nieminen to the San Jose Sharks for a third-round pick in the 2006 NHL Draft.
Randy: New hockey, old hockey, Glen Sather is an idiot. Ville is a total playoff performer. Anybody in the NHL would be dumb to not give up a 3rd rounder for him.
The Gazette: Every penny Raymonde raises will go to the Jacques Plante Foundation, which she created six months after her husband's death to assist promising young goalies in Switzerland.
Randy: It would appear that Canada's men's hockey team was foiled at the Olympics from beyond the grave by the greatest Canadian goalie ever, Jacques Plante. Swiss or should I say Jacques Plante defeated Canada 2-0 on a 49-save shutout by Martin Gerber.
AP: Bryan Colangelo resigned Monday as general manager of the Phoenix Suns to become president and GM of the Toronto Raptors. [cut] The Raptors reportedly offered Colangelo a multiyear deal worth $3 million per year.
Randy: I guess if the salary cap means we can't sign good NBA players, we might as well sign good managers with the extra money lying around. Everybody is happy today. Talk to me at the end of next season and the next.
CP: Canada won silver in the men's 5,000-metre short-track speedskating relay at the Olympics.
Randy: The team consisted of...
