The ever changing world of baseball

April 14, 2024 Baseball Column Tim's Two Cents Golf

Everyone from David Bowie to Taylor Swift has written about changes.

Baseball certainly has changed from when I started watching it in the 1970’s. Today’s game barely resembles the one I grew up with, proving not every change is for the better…

Madness leads to Masters

April 8, 2024 College Column Tim's Two Cents Golf

March Madness always provides those crazy moments we all love. Highly seeded teams often get derailed by a low seed, an upstart, a Cinderella. That’s what makes this event so entertaining. It is unpredictable to a fault.

Some years the best…

2024 Pittsburgh Pirates/MLB Preview

March 31, 2024 Baseball College Sports Column Tim's Two Cents

The Pittsburgh Pirates are 5-0 on the season, so this technically shouldn’t be considered a preview. But society and baseball can’t box me in. I am still calling this a season preview. Starting the season in March is nonsense anyway. However…

Sweet then Elite

March 25, 2024 Column Tim's Two Cents

It certainly was a crazy first four days of the NCAA Tournament.

We had an overtime buzzer beater. We had a double overtime war of attrition. We had a furious comeback late Sunday night to send a number one seed to overtime. But Cinderella…

How much bracket madness can we expect?

March 17, 2024 College Sports Column Tim's Two Cents

Do you want March Madness storylines?

You know you do.

Championship Week is the prelude to Madness, but it has plenty of Madness itself.

Let’s start with the near misses.

Brown University was a couple of missed free…

March memories

March 10, 2024 College Sports Column Tim's Two Cents

I have loved March Madness dating back to the days of a 32 team field.

As a fanatic, some of my memories are good and some are bad. Then there are the memories that have nothing to do with my fanaticism and everything to do with how great this…

At war with bracketologists?

March 3, 2024 College Sports Column Tim's Two Cents

Double double toil and trouble fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Man, Billy Shakespeare sure did have a way with words. I hear he had a pretty good mid range jump shot, too.

It is March. Championship week is less than a week away, and a…

Knockin’ at the door

February 26, 2024 College Penn State College Sports Column Tim's Two Cents Men's Basketball

Knock, knock.

Who’s there?


March who?

(breaks door down)March Madness, baby.


Being a fanatic isn’t always easy

February 18, 2024 Column Tim's Two Cents

I love being a sports fanatic.

It is who I am. It is what I do. It has been my passion since I was 7 years old. I will never change.

See, there is never a point in the entire year when I don’t have a team to be following and cheering…

The best in the business…maybe ever

February 11, 2024 Column Tim's Two Cents

I admit it.

In early December, after the Bills beat the Chiefs in Kansas City, I said I didn’t think there was any way the Chiefs were going to the Super Bowl much less winning it.

The lesson to be learned is never to doubt the…
