Giants eliminate Phillies to win NL pennant

Giants - 3
Phillys - 2

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Juan Uribe (notes) hit a tiebreaking homer off Ryan Madson (notes) with two outs in the eighth inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Saturday night in Game 6 of the NL championship series to reach the World Series for the first time since 2002.

The pitching-rich Giants will host the Texas Rangers in Game 1 on Wednesday night.

Giants ace Tim Lincecum (notes) struggled in the eighth inning, pitching in relief on one day of rest after losing Game 5. Brian Wilson (notes) got five outs to finish off the Phillies, who were trying to become the first NL team in 66 years to win three straight pennants.

Ochocinco cereal box all sexed up


Oh, oh, oh, oh, Ocho.



Top sex scandals
From Steve Garvey to Tiger Woods, take a look at our top sports sex scandals.
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco was trying to help a charity by including the phone number for donations to Feed The Children on the box of his new cereal called OchocincO's.

Thanks to a wrong area code, the number shown is for a phone sex line, where a sultry voice informs callers they can "talk live with a nasty girl who'll do anything you want for only $2.99 a minute."

On Wednesday Ochocinco told his Twitter followers to "order my cereal OCHOCINCOs. Start your day with a lil suga!!!"

Later, Ochocinco told a Cincinnati TV station that he had nothing to do with the mistake and that he's confident it will be fixed.

SI.com's Ann Killion weighs in on the Ines Sainz incident

Athletes behaving like boorish frat boys toward women is a tired act

Story Highlights
The misinformation about women reporters in the locker room is absurd
It happens without incident every day around the country as women do their jobs
In a few more years, we'll probably be talking about an Ines Sainz-like issue again



Every few years, like clockwork, some overpaid athletes act like boorish frat boys and my job becomes a subject of debate.

Cardinals release Matt Leinart

By BOB BAUM

updated 1 hour, 26 minutes ago
PHOENIX - The Arizona Cardinals have released Matt Leinart, parting ways with the former Heisman Trophy winner who was supposed to be the team's franchise quarterback but couldn't escape the backup role.

The team made the announcement on Saturday, shortly before the Cardinals had to reach their 53-man roster limit.

"In fairness to Matt, I think that it would be a tough position for him to be in a backup role," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "Maybe a fresh start for him is what would be a good thing, for all of us."

NFL Player's hair insured for $1 million

PITTSBURGH - Just call Troy Polamalu the man with the million dollar hair.

The long, flowing black hair that tumbles out of Polamalu's helmet and down his back — it's nearly three feet long — has been insured for $1 million by Head and Shoulders, the shampoo brand that is endorsed by the Pittsburgh Steelers safety.

The insurance was obtained through Lloyd's of London, which did not reveal what must be done to Polamalu's hair for anyone to collect on the policy.

Polamalu's hair has been targeted by an opposing NFL player at least once — the Chiefs' Larry Johnson tackled Polamalu by the hair during a 49-yard interception return in a 2006 game.

Polamalu, a five-time Pro Bowl player, wears his hair long as a tribute to his Samoan heritage.

NFL to expand to 18 game regular season

ATLANTA - NFL owners have shown widespread support for going to an 18-game schedule but want to implement the change as part of a new labor agreement.

Commissioner Roger Goodell says owners see two more regular-season games — and two fewer preseason games — as the most logical way to enhance revenues in a difficult economic environment. He says it will be one of the main issues in talks on reaching a new collective bargaining agreement.

The current deal runs out after this season. Players are eager to see how much of the additional revenue they will receive with an expanded schedule, especially since it could increase the risk of injuries or health problems after they retire.

Goodell says the league is targeting 2012 for the 18-game season.

AP Source: Bengals reach deal with TO



CINCINNATI - Receiver Terrell Owens agreed to a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday and will report to training camp in a couple of days, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

The Bengals were his first choice, giving him a chance to team with close friend Chad Ochocinco, who has already dubbed the pair Batman and Robin. The Bengals made an offer on Monday, and Owens accepted a day later.

Players are required to report for the start of training camp on Wednesday in Georgetown, Ky. Owens is expected to show up when workouts begin on Thursday, said the person speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had made no announcement.

Rest of article here

Note:  ESPN, NFL Network and several others have since confirmed the 1 year/$2 million dollar contract Between Owens and the Bengals.  Including Ochocinco.  Going to be an interesting season.

Umpire: 'I just cost that kid a perfect game'

DETROIT -- Armando Galarraga squeezed the ball in his mitt, stepped on first base with his right foot and was ready to celebrate the first perfect game in Detroit Tigers' history.

What happened next will be the talk of baseball for the rest of this season and likely a lot longer.

The restCollapse )

Galarraga was so classy during this. I would have been kicking and screaming at that umpire if I were him. IMO, the only way the ump can make this better is to commit seppuku on the pitcher's mound.
