If your AM radio is on the fritz, catch up on all your sports talk here!

"I was nervous. I had fears of him maybe being gay. So I decided I would get him involved with every sport there was available."
-- Margaret McGee, mother of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Randal Williams, HBO
GH: Ignorance is rarely more evident than when people discuss their fear of homosexuality. Signing junior up to chase balls in Little League isn't going make him chase babes when he's sixteen.
"Going against [Jerome] Woods, [Ray] Crockett and [Eric] Warfield every day, this is the best secondary that I've faced in my career."
-- Johnny Morton, Chiefs wide receiver, KMBC Channel 9
GH: Terrell Owens, the 49ers' wide out, shredded these guys like they were P.F. Changs lettuce wraps on his 72-yard stroll through them. Maybe Morton knows something no one else does.
"My concern is with the [Chiefs'] linebackers. It doesn't appear that they have any speed at that position at all."
-- Jack Harry, WHB 810
Caller Marsha: "I think Carl Peterson is a little shifty."
Jason Whitlock: "I'd take out the f."

"Eat your heart out, David Glass. Oh, did we say David Glass? The former Wal-Mart CEO who now owns the Royals and has single-handedly turned this once-model franchise into the dreck of an operation it is, was also in attendance at the stadium. Presumably, this near-domination of his sad-sack ballclub merely reinforced his determination to break the Yankees at whatever cost to baseball. Luxury tax and 50 percent of their local revenues or death! This is the Glass battle cry that is sounded through the phone lines to commissioner Bud [Buddy Can You Spare A Dime] Selig's office in Milwaukee on a daily basis, and we can only hope the collective-bargaining process is allowed to play out to a deal this time rather than blow up over the unrealistic give-back demands of the embattled commissioner's small-market rabble."
-- Bill Madden, columnist, New York Daily News
GH: Glass needs to push for a salary cap, not revenue sharing. Baseball continues to try to increase revenues in a vanishing marketplace instead of cutting costs. Set the salary cap at $25 million and pass the savings along to the customers.
