It’s been a decade since Mike Martz designed the championship offense in St. Louis Rams known as “The Greatest Show on Turf.” Now the Bears’ offensive coordinator, Martz has branded his current squad “The Greatest Show on Torn-Up Brown Sod” after Sunday's convincing 31-26 home win over the Eagles.
As the Vikings scramble to prepare the University of Minnesota's undersized stadium for Monday night's game against the Bears, many football observers are wondering why the contest won't be held at one of the several other Midwestern NFL stadiums. Turns out each has a reason it can't host the game.
Cardinals megastar 1B Albert Pujols is reportedly seeking a 10-year, $300 million contract after his current deal expires after this season. That's a lot of cash, especially for a smaller market like St. Louis. But Cubs GM Jim Hendry thinks he can scrounge up the money, even if the decision is based solely out of spite for former Cubs infielder Ryan Theriot.

After the string of injuries suffered by Cardinal pitchers Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, and Mitchell Boggs all within the first week of Spring Training, team doctors have determined the cause of such a striking plague to be the Cubs Curse carried over to the team by new infielder Ryan Theriot.
