Atlanta Has Worst Meltdown in Sports History

First off, let’s be honest here: as much as I hate the New England Patriots, my disgust has nothing to do with Brady or Belichick, but just the state they represent. I hate Massachusetts, as they are a Communist country. They’re a great team, and Brady is arguably the best quarterback of all time. But […]

How Many Rock Bottoms Will Tiger Woods Hit?

The fall of Tiger Woods has been a sad train wreck to watch. At this point, I’m not sure that his demise can be attributed to the fallout from his scandals, as those are more than 7 years old. Still, his personal crises could not have come at a worse time. He was recovering from […]

Not Surprised

Three years ago, then-women’s MMA great Ronda Rousey made some brags. She once said she could beat Floyd Mayweather; she also said she could beat then-male heavyweight champion Cain Velaasquez. Personally, I think she was just creating publicity. I made remarks along those lines back then. But the former Olympic judo medalist now has two […]

The Cubs Break The Curse — The Hard Way

The last time the Cubs won the World Series, Roosevelt–Theodore, not Franklin–was President; the Industrial Revolution was just getting started; Russia was still in the Czar era; World War I had not yet begun; there was no Federal income tax, no Federal Reserve, no universal suffrage; Helen Keller was only 28 years old. —– Fast-forward […]

One year ago today…

…a young woman in the Cincinnati area played in a college basketball game. But not just any game. You see, she had an inoperable brain tumor, and it was touch-and-go as to whether she’d see 2015. But thanks to her school, the planned opponent, another local school, and the NCAA, her dream came true. And it didn’t […]

The Stupidest Play Call In Sports History

As an observer of the NFL for a very long time, I have never been a fan of short passes inside the defense’s ten yard line, or screen passes inside the offense’s ten yard line. This is because they are very high-risk. You want evidence, here it is: (a) Dan Fouts throws a 102-yard pick-6 to […]

Tiger Woods Hits New Low

This time, in his first tournament of the year, he fired 73 in the first round, then followed with a career-worst 82 (including a 44 on the front 9). He was dead last. I’ve long said that I believed Tiger could still win the big tournaments. He is not what he once was physically, but […]

Shocker (Not Really)

Many years ago, after pro tennis player Chris Evert married Andy Mills and had settled into motherhood, she said something to the effect that her prior life had been all about her. The way she said it led me to think she had at least one prior abortion. While she’d had an otherwise solid reputation, […]

My $0.02 on Michael Sam

For those paying little or no attention, Michael Sam is an All-American defensive end for the Missouri Tigers, who outed himself as a homosexual just before the NFL draft. He was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the 7th round of the NFL draft. Quite frankly, I am not surprised that he was not […]

America’s Dumbest Criminals, Part 183,291

You’re a football player at a Big 12 Conference school. You decide to go out with a couple of your friends, break into a house, and hold the residents at gunpoint while ransacking the place. While wearing your team-issued sweats with your number on them. Go directly to jail. Do not pass GO. Do not […]
