TOP STORIES OF 2002
> Brazil wins World Cup Brazil wins the World Cup for a record fifth time by beating Germany, 2-0. Ronaldo was awarded the Golden Boot for leading all scorers with eight goals and, coincidentally, hooked up after the match with a tranny in gold boots.
> MLB All-Star Game ends in a tie After 11 innings are played and the managers run out of pitchers, commissioner Bud Selig decides to end the game in a tie. It's too bad the All-Star Game didn't determine home-field in the World Series in 2002 because we would have seen our first 8-game World Series.
> Patriots upset Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI On a last-second field goal by Adam Vinatieri, the Patriots pull off a shocking upset of the St. Louis Rams. The outcome made former Rams coach Dick Vermeil cry. As would have any outcome.
