You know, I think all sports are going to heck. All of them. It doesn't matter whether it's baseball (steroids, labour problems), hockey (worse labour problems, Jim Balsillie), football (Spygate, Terrell Owens) -- it all sucks everywhere, and I wonder why I stay a sports fan. At least the movie fans don't have to put up with any of this nonsense.

Anyway, just to show you auto racing is not immune, read that the head of Renault racing Flavio Briatore has resigned in disgrace over the big race-fixing scheme at the Singapore Grand Prix, where Nelson Piquet Jr. crashed to allow teammate Fernando Alonso to take advantage of the yellow car, win the race and pick up points.

What a gong show. A big gong show. And as usual, we fans look like fools for following the sport.
