In this edition of EndScore Report, we speak about New York Yankees closer, Mariano Rivera and his setting the all-time MLB saves record. Trevor Hoffman is mentioned and wondered about if he were on the Yankees. How about the era versus era debate? Would Bruce Sutter or Rollie Fingers fare better? Either way, Rivera has to be considered the greatest off all-time when you put the postseason equation into the mix. Give it a LISTEN!
In this edition of EndScore Report's "In Your Face," DV and Chris get on NBA Commissioner David Stern for taking some inexplicable time off while the NBA Lockout is going down. What?

In this edition of EndScore Report, we speak on Minnesota Twins' Jim Thome joining an elite club by hitting his 600th home run of his career. There are only seven other players that have achieved the feat - Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Ken Griffey, Jr., Alex Rodriguez, and Sammy Sosa. Who else will be able to reach this great MLB milestone? After the St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols, we don't see anyone else joining the group for a long time. LISTEN UP!
This week, we give an "In Your Face" to the Arizona Cardinals for giving up a lot to acquire Kevin Kolb in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round pick?

In this edition of "In Your Face," we call out the US government for their mishandling of the case versus Roger Clemens. Great job, prosecution.

LISTEN UP!

In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris bid farewell to one of the most dominating big men that ever played in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq left an indelible mark on the Association and will be remembered as one of the more entertaining and humorous players ever. His four championships - three with the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant, as well as the one with the Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade - gives His Shaqness the credibility to be mentioned with greats such as Bill Russell and Hakeem Olajuwon. However, for my money, I'd take Wilt Chamberlain as the most dominating force in the middle. Anyway, give our goodbyes to Shaq a listen!

In this edition of "In Your Face," DV and Chris throw down on Scottie Pippen for his remarks last week of LeBron James being better than Michael Jordan. To paraphrase a new movie coming out, six titles is all the argument you need to say that Jordan is the best. Well, on top of everything else, like him transcending the sport of basketball like Babe Ruth for baseball. We also wag our finger at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for taking sides. Sure, he's employed by the owners, but when it comes to settling arguments between them and the players, he should at least try to be neutral to make sure there's football in the fall. LISTEN UP!
Shaquille O'Neal, one of the most dominant big men to ever play in the NBA has called it a career, announcing his retirement via video. Shaq was a larger than life personality that transcended the world of basketball, becoming a loveable character that appeared in movies, hip hop videos, and all over the mainstream. However, he wasn't all fun and games as he led the Los Angeles Lakers, along with Kobe Bryant, to three consecutive NBA titles, as well as the Miami Heat, playing the role of second fiddle to Dwyane Wade. As a rookie, he became famous for tearing down backboards and the legend of Shaq grew exponentially. The NBA loses a magnificent player who will surely star on another stage.
