Tiger Roars in Masterful Performance

Four knee surgeries. Four back surgeries. He will never play again. Tiger Woods. Kinder. Gentler. Calmer. He’ll play but won’t have the fire. Tiger Woods. Intimidating. Menacing. Still a stone cold killer. Tiger Woods: 2019 Masters Champion. Never say never, but it’s hard to imagine a scenario in sports happening again that can encompass all...

No Cavalier attitude with these champs

March 16, 2018: #16 seed UMBC 74   #1 seed Virginia 54 389 days later: Virginia 2019 National Champions I believe that’s what they call turning the tables. When 7’ 4” Ralph Sampson towered over college basketball in the 1980’s it appeared Virginia, with scholarly Terry Holland at the helm, would be a fixture in...

Four on the Floor

I stated last week that the first two rounds of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament provided a lot of time for naps. Well, the hoops Gods gave us a triple shot of Red Bull this weekend. Wow! Sweet Sixteen Thursday night was a little slow, but there was enough excitement in the Purdue/Tennessee game to...

Play Ball!

The boys of summer are set to return this week, all attempting to dethrone the Boston Red Sox. Aside from the Washington Nationals and Seattle Mariners, who have never appeared in the World Series, the longest World Series droughts belong to the Baltimore Orioles(36) and the Pittsburgh Pirates(40).

Duke will claim the Kingdom, and Zion will be King

On November 13, 2018, I stated that Duke would win the National Championship. On March 19, 2019, I’m stating again that Duke will win the National Championship. As a card carrying member of the “Duke Haters” club, I don’t like it but must admit it.  I’m on a bad streak of watching teams I dislike...

It’s March, so let the MADNESS begin

Last Friday I noticed my excitement level increased. No, not because it was the weekend. My calendar said it was March. That can only mean one thing… Let the madness begin. Big Time Event For a one day major event, you can’t beat the Super Bowl. Ok, this year was not a good example. In...

Different year, same Nutting nonsense

Pittsburgh Pirates owner Bob Nutting spoke last week. Here is a sound bite. To begin with, Bob Nutting is a geek. I don’t mean that in a name calling way. He is a business nerd, who from day one displayed very little baseball knowledge. That’s fine. Owners hire people to take care of the sports...
