Top 4: Superbowl Special

Over the past several days several people have asked me who I’m rooting for, or if I’m ready for the big game. Which is always an interesting question, because I essentially gave up on the NFL several years ago when I could no longer stomach the Cowboys. I tried, I really did, to pick a [...]

Tim Tebow, Jason Collins and Chris Broussard…and courage.

Normally the news that Tim Tebow was released…well, any news about Tim Tebow, really, would be the talk of sports talk radio. But not yesterday. Yesterday (and today, and probably for the rest of the week) the talk – and not just on sports talk, but all over the radio dial – was about another [...]

“Race Well Run”

There’s been a lot of talk the past couple of days about the 3200 meter race at the Ohio state championship meet. None of it having to do with the winner of the race. If you haven’t heard or haven’t seen the video, the story is Meghan Vogel had won the 1600m just an hour [...]

Observations from the world of Sport

These are just a few random things I’ve noticed over the past week or so from the world of sports. I was going to include some hockey also, but my chief observation about hockey is that no one south of Minnesota cares much (although I honestly do find it interesting, even if I couldn’t name [...]

8-0!

Congratulations to the San Antonio Spurs for winning their eighth playoff game in a row (and a franchise record 18th in a row overall). Tonight’s game was the toughest win of the 18 as far as I can remember. So congratulations to the L.A. Clippers for putting up a good fight, especially after the demoralizing [...]

St. Louis Cardinals 2012 Predictions

It’s time again, baseball fans, for my annual St. Louis Cardinals break-down. There are a bunch of new faces this year and some very major (and a few minor) changes to talk about. As always, keep in mind this is just one arm-chair fan’s opinion and is based on nothing more than general observation and [...]

Midweek Humor: Your Favorite Baseball Team

In honor of baseball season starting today (unless you’re counting those games in Japan last week): If you’re like me, you’ve had a favorite baseball team since you were knee-high…well…for a long time. And I am not here to dissuade you from your choice. Even if you unwisely root for a team other than the [...]

Could’ve been worse

The Significance of Superbowl Sunday

I’m sure there are some of you who are getting together with friends, getting the wings and pizza and cokes ready for the party you are going to have tonight watching the Superbowl. Others, I know, don’t care anything about the Superbowl. Maybe your team isn’t in it and you’re bitter. Maybe you don’t like [...]
