Fantasy Fix: Let's Play Ball!

It was a long journey, and I'd like to thank ALL OF YOU (except for Lou Piniella) for being so patient as we start the all-new Fantasy Baseball. I did some calculations over the weekend, and it turns out that the new fantasy baseball is 1,000,000,000 percent better than the old fantasy baseball.

I'll say this: If you're not playing the all-new Fantasy Baseball, you're nuts. (And if you haven't done your free registration for yet, you are completely insane!)

Read on for instructions on sending questions to the mailbag, and joining the new WOW League where you can take on The Wiz, Sarah "The Brain" Braunstein, or Duane from New Jersey!

This past weekend, Umbro debuted 2009 home soccer kits (in Britain, "kits" are outfits created for a specific purpose... in this case, the "kit" is for playing soccer) for the England pro soccer team. That's awesome news in GearHead-land (kind of like waking up one morning in March and finding an un-opened Christmas present beside your pillow), as I'm a pretty big fan of all things related to sports and fashion. So I decided to do a little digging and see what I could find out about the kits...

As it turns out, I didn't have to do much digging at all to deliver a scoop to you guys; the good folk over at Umbro were willing to hook me up with all kinds of info!

Come on Mexico. This is how you celebrate a win over Costa Rica in a World Cup qualifying match?! The "Locomotion"? That dance hasn't been cool since... wait a minute, that's right, it's never been cool.

And how about that guy in the front? Yeah, I'm talking about you team captain Pável Pardo. Is that a disco dance or something? Awful. Just awful.

The 2010 World Cup is coming up fellas. Time to get some new moves.

That Lebron Kid is Pretty Good, No?

How many of you guys watch 60 Minutes?


Well I do!

And maybe you should too. If you were watching 60 Minutes on Sunday, you saw Lebron "King" James make one of the sickest basketball shots since... the last time Lebron dunked on two defenders in traffic. Which I admit, happens a lot. But what makes this shot so insane is how far away Lebron was when he made it. And how easy he made it look.

Check it out (Lebron also talks about the "#1 player" in basketball after the shot)!

Coach Cal Takes the Money and Runs

So the ink hasn’t even dried on my NCAA Tournament brackets yet and Memphis head coach John Calipari is already worried about ditching his players for a new job. To be perfectly blunt, that is a really stinky thing for Coach Cal to do. Like, stinkier than a three week old burrito.

Reports are that Calipari will take the vacant head coaching position with the storied basketball program at the University of Kentucky. After nine years building up Memphis hoops, Calipari wants to cash in on his success. The key word there is cash, because that’s probably what’s driving his decision.
Unfortunately, what’s good for Coach Calipari’s bank account isn’t good for the kids around him.

He Wants HOW Much Money?!?

Here’s a list of items I would pay $50 for:

-The new Street Fighter IV game
-A house-trained bobcat

Here’s a list of items I would pay $50 million for:

-A house-trained bobcat… that also made me breakfast and scratched The Wiz every time he came shuffling over to my corner of the Village

And finally, here’s one item I would absolutely, positively, NEVER spend $50M on:

-A highly touted college pitcher that’s never thrown a single inning of professional ball
