Money builds strength!

The Seibu Lions are in trouble as an amateur team in Japan, called Tokyo Gas, has admitted that a Seibu scout paid one of its players.

In a press conference, Tokyo Gas team managers said the family
of the pitcher, Yuta Kimura, had received 300,000 yen every month
starting January 2004. The team said it is to place Kimura, 21, on
probation without clarifying the duration.

Seibu owner Hidekazu Ota admitted Friday that its scouting staff
had paid a total of some 13 million yen in under-the-table cash gifts
to two amateur players, but stopped short of identifying the two.


Seibu had made the cash gifts ''to help them build up their
physical strength,'' Ota has said.

You know, I'm feeling very weak and I think I need something to help me build up my physical strength.

It wasn't a transaction so much as a transfusion.

Bob, you can plan to spend the next 5 years at Staples.

The Pac-10 men's basketball tournament will remain at Staples Center through 2012 as part of a five-year extension Friday between Fox Sports Net and the downtown arena.

I would assume that Phillip Anschutz's people have written a very large check to the Pac-10.
