SPORTS: Professional sports played by cry babies

All right, I admit it. I have lost all interest in most professional sports. I’m tired of all the whining by overpaid children and the threats of “I’m gonna take my ball and go home.” We should reroute all that money to, say, teachers, but that’s another story.

The only professional sporting event I am interested in is cycling. We currently have two major races going on today and guess what? Not a mention in Monday’s sport section. These races are; the tour of California and the Giro d’Italia. They are premier events in the cycling world and worth at least some mention. The participants are some of the best and most fit athletes in the world and deserve some print.
