I watched last and I don't know what meal -- -- but the TV guys were -- Stunned at that Steve Donahue -- it was one of the purity as you're watching right now on what it -- Woodson. I'll just give the quick recap OK BC scores to but go ahead by one great clutch shot by.

And went down railings and flip them back with style maybe that is the style finished and in did. This this amateur -- and they -- urged him such a great performance -- four feet tall wearing clothes that. We beat two big sausage incident as a like it's almost -- parish line to be here to get help so it looks like a flying school I give you credit -- into the site cannot get next -- -- put it all Winter Olympics you watch last I -- some of those that you read a book I want I -- just kick it for around. A watch that I watch a lot of was via. -- from the Revere what -- that was of course you know for these products rodeos and Freddie he's Keegan was on Keegan when he gets difficult for you early on in prime time they didn't like. Outward ten minutes of by apple on this age and get -- like. -- apple want to get to my new favorite sport which I absolutely love. Luge relay sickness now. See it's it's three Q3 sled. Three sled team -- like the US -- that -- of and the first is. American woman goes down by herself an -- like thousand miles an hour and the differences at the very end. The finish line there is this kind of cattle that hangs down and as you go underneath -- -- -- and you hit it and that opens the gate back at the top of the mountain. For the men's singles guy decode it really comes flying down they had was there's a lot of the -- Right after -- one that these acts the panel which opens the gate that doubles which is only preview like this sounds a little good patent well. Yeah. You watch -- I know it's my old time refrain that you watch skeleton won't lose -- It's to do that I'm never gonna try. Should be like a trial yeah once every four years and open trial like the US open -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now. -- as a -- dressing room but. But skeleton lose they should have open -- you could go to Lake Placid if you walk yeah given a shot and look at who ever gets the opportunity to try to skillet I. She saw this feature about this house. Three slopes -- kid from Indiana all places annually at 300 -- he'll lose in his. Area so we have to go somewhere else to be this pretty slow styles right guy and he said my parents really didn't have. The 40000. Dollars a year to semi when winter sports now 40000 here to -- winners or -- -- -- -- -- not a product lunch tray down an identity issue that a lot. And really the other you know I guess. Here's the other thing that I wonder every total -- solutions. What's the difference you see one guy gonna and then expect that I -- -- a -- -- what is they doing different. I noticed you don't I don't do this it's the lines they'd take -- the the absence of touching all the -- did you watch and you know what's going. Others say this is a perfectly -- but the perfect line a week ago we said. That was in it was it was not into a lot of you I'm good at your watch and store I could ever -- that shuttle really playing before usury. That was on NBC -- he's just one. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Your version of lately on top of each other -- in the problem. Oh I don't think -- going to be a part if it's exciting someone gets it exactly would I top it pushed up but we got Ryan -- top. -- -- -- -- deciding to and I know you know that these kids that got money opportunity that's all well and good. They don't just let it would try. And ridiculous probably do well. Come hell even the word exist and -- -- gotta be asked you on in. That you brought Wiki if we could say sausage said -- the right. The skeleton GO. It's just that's always a budget or go to 65. -- -- I actually tried something like that for now I laid down a skateboard went down they -- on the street it was not a good experience and badly. Yeah there was a good amount of reserves on cheeks a ski. The old you were talking while I was much younger a fair result I. Don't under I just like fixed. Like an hour or so walker cups Mike throw. Some great at the Lake Placid and do you get qualified and I don't think so I mean it's just that recreational thing on the summer they have bobsled wheels on sleeping you know obviously never an -- right that's that. Mark -- by the end of the park -- on Jesse did yeah park keystone of the inner tube on the right. And the best at that and kick ass do you stop you should see my full -- -- to take it up yet I don't touch the size instantly just keep good lines good luck to offer their exquisite. This is -- perfect and I think people and stop in -- in amazement when they -- economics man.

That's good -- better I've got a good I've mastered the tube ready for the next level the next challenge yet we should try and when I was UMass went snow we take the lunch trays right on the hill. And council. We can go to that people used to say you should be a skeleton -- at an event now I think it is like to admit it is yet should be fortunate it went straight writing in skeleton.

We discuss the suspension of Ray Rice, and how the act he committed certainly seemed like it warranted a harsher penalty from the strict front office of Roger Goodell.

Mut and Villani are talking about the MLB All Star Game, Adam Wainwright and Derek Jeter, and what are some of the worst ideas in sports.
With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
