“It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you disparage the pathetic lives of the little people who make it possible for you have a career bouncing an inflatable ball.” — Stephen Colbert, referring to, who else?, LeBron James.

Yep, even the host of a show that usually deals with politics felt the need to take a shot at LeKing.

A lot of us are enjoying the fact that LeBron and the rest of the Big Three lost. Doesn’t mean we hate them personally. We just disapprove of the arrogance.

After the Heat’s Game 5 loss, one of the Big Three said, “No one said it was going to be easy.”

Actually, yes, there were people who said it would be easy — The Big Three!

A Northern California youth baseball league has barred embattled personal trainer Greg Anderson from coaching his son’s team.

The president of the Burlingame Youth Baseball Association says Anderson, the former personal trainer of slugger Barry Bonds, is not a registered coach and is prohibited from being on the field during games.

Anderson, who has coached for years, was told of the prohibition after a parent complained about the convicted steroids dealer’s participation.

There is no word yet on how the decision has impacted the youth team’s home run production.
