Word is that seven-time champ Michael Schumacher who'll turn 41 this January, is very close to announcing a Formula One comeback with Mercedes next season. "Age will not be a factor in Michael's story. It wouldn't surprise me if Michael challenged for another world championship" piped Nigel Mansell.
"It will not be easy for him. When you stay away from F1 for a long time, it takes time to get used to all the trial sessions again, it is not simple," weighed in Nico Rosberg to German newspaper, Stuttgarter Zeitung.
Have the Raptors been reading Bill Simmons' The Book of Basketball because they're hitting on one of the tome's central tenets, the secret of winning basketball: forgetting about personal stats, checking ego and make the opposing team have to worry about everybody you got. The Raps stung Chris Paul and the Hornets 98-92 on Sunday with all five starters hitting double figures. Now that's some Zen basketball. If they can channel this chemistry against the league's top-flight teams, watch for the Raps to fight their way back to a .500 record in January.
It was as if the Kansas City Chiefs opted to play touch football instead of tackle on Sunday in a 41-34 loss where they allowed the Cleveland Browns to amass an extraordinary 735 yards. A nice chunk of the yardage carnage came courtesy of Josh Cribbs who returned a pair of kickoffs for TDs (a 100 yarder & a 103 yarder). The scores ratcheted up his career kickoff returns for touchdowns total to eight, a new NFL record. Running back Jerome Harrison also ate his Wheaties this weekend rushing his way into Cleveland's team record book. He exploded for 286 yards on 34 carries topping HOFer Jim Brown's single-game rushing mark of 237 yards.
