No more guarantees please!

It has been a long-time coming, but the NBA playoffs have been more exciting than the NHL playoffs this year. For a team that had aspirations of winning the NBA championship, the Chicago Bulls season ended with a thud. To lose three straight games to Cleveland including the final one on your home court by [...]

"The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream." William Shakespeare on Josh Hamilton.

The NFL continues to clamp down on discipline with the stiff penalty the New York Jets received for tampering. Not only did they not lose a draft pick, they weren't even forced to switch places in a round with the Patriots.  Meanwhile, in an inteview with Charlie Rose, commissioner Roger Goodell said the Deflategate decision should [...]

"Playoffs, don't talk about playoffs, you kidding me, I just hope we can win a game."

I understand Kevin Love was frustrated and who wouldn’t have been. After toiling with Minnesota for six years and now he finally had a chance to not only participate in the playoffs but potentially contribute to winning a championship. But let’s be honest, Kelly Olynyk did not do this intentionally. Many Celtics have come to [...]

Underachievers and Overachievers

I’m lucky enough to be in sunny Bahamas right now. No one here knows what hockey is although I was able to insult a few Yankees fans so that was rewarding. Speaking of the Yankees, the Sox-Yankees clash this weekend and should be a good early test for both as much as you can be [...]

Balls and Strikes

A few thoughts as we gear up for the start of the 2015 MLB season. The Boston Red Sox have had a somewhat bizarre offseason. They have seemingly loaded up on offense, could have the best 1-6 hitters in baseball if things fall right, but have no #1 or possibly #2 starter, have a 40-year-old closer Koji [...]

"Angels in the Outfield"

Just reading an article on ESPN about the Pittsburgh Pirates potentially having the best outfield in baseball this season with Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco. The Pirates outfield trio seems to have some pretty good ancestry in the names of Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla and Andy Van Slyke or Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell [...]

"All I'm askin' is for a little respect"

Aretha Franklin knew what she was talking about. The definition of respect is a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements. Theoretically, we all strive to show people respect, however, just how to show that respect seems to be a moving target. For some, financial gain or [...]

"Revis"ionist History

So Darelle Revis is a New York Jet again. Is it really a surprise? Revis has never really disguised who he was and that was never more evident than before he signed with the Patriots last season. Revis received credit for taking a discount affording him a chance to win a Superbowl, but the truth is, [...]

Winter brings out the worst in all of us!

Kevin Stallings, head coach of the Vanderbilt Commodores, missed a golden opportunity this week to not only make an important point, but set an example for athletes of all ages in regards to sportsmanship. After Vanderbilt beat the Tennessee Volunteers, Vandy player Wade Baldwin IV was seen clapping his hands in the face of Vols [...]

Baseball is back and so is cricket!

The Red Sox allegedly outbid 11 other teams to land Cuban prize Yoan Moncada. Some scouts are calling him the next Robinson Cano and the Yankees were rumored to be the top threat to sign him based on their dire middle infield needs. The Sox have now spent over 300 million dollars in the last [...]
