Part of my morning commute includes a dose of Rivals Radio, where Bill King and a laundry list of guests and callers talk college sports in general – and college football in particular. The season is approaching, which means the shows are getting better and better. Except, that is, for one thing. Why is everyone [...]

There’s a Redskins’ flag that flies at my desk. Where and how it is displayed is based on how the team fares the week before. When they win, it flies high and proudly. When they lose, it gets tossed behind my computer – safely out of my sight. After last night’s shambolic debacle, it is [...]
Never is a long time. I’ve never been to Hawaii, climbed a mountain or enjoyed watching “Beaches.” And Clemson has never beaten North Carolina in a basketball game in Chapel Hill. In 54 meetings in Chapel Hill, the Tar Heels have won every single time. You would think the Globetrotters and Generals were playing, instead [...]

Andre Agassi said it years ago, and it’s still true today. Image is everything. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler stood brooding on the sidelines for much of the Bears’ 21-14 loss to Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game, leading some to question his heart. Turns out, he has a MCL tear. I think he’s guilty. [...]

I like a good dunk. I really do. And in celebration of that fact, here’s a fun piece from Deadspin on Blake Griffin’s massive dunks this season. Cheers!
Wow. As I sit here Monday morning, I marvel at the fantastic weekend of college basketball we just had. My bracket is doing OK, as I have six of the Elite Eight and all four Final Four picks still alive. And if San Diego State wins the whole thing, I’m going to look really smart. [...]
I hope you all enjoyed last night’s snooze fest of a national championship game. I guess, if you’re a UConn fan with enough moral flexibility to gloss over the fact that your coach is a cheater, you liked it just fine. Cinderella stories are fine. They make for good theater. Those teams also, quite often, [...]
I had never heard of Charl Schwartzel before this weekend. Yet he took home the green jacket yesterday at Augusta with four birdies down the stretch to win going away. I dare say it was the best few hours of golf I’ve ever watched, though I freely admit that my sample size is not all [...]

OK, I admit it. I’m a huge fan of Shaquille O’Neal. So, I’m a little bummed that he’s retiring from the NBA. He is a man that’s larger than life, both on the basketball court and off. Plus, he was a great interview and, for the most part, an athlete you can point to as [...]
Wow, I’ve been really slack over here, haven’t I? In my defense, I’ve been a bit more active on the soccer blog. Of course, I get paid to do that one… Anyway, I’ll try to do better… Hats off to Webb Simpson for winning the U.S. Open. I watched a lot of the final round [...]
