Baseball's Second Half

I don't know about you, but I am enjoying this baseball season immensely. There has been drama (no hitters, perfect games, many walk-off victories), controversy (perfect games that should have been), and surprises (Reds, Padres in first place). Here are some questions I look forward to being... Sign in to see full entry.

King James

Ok, I haven't written something here in almost two months. So what is the blockbuster subject I write about? To be ironic, a sport I care little about. That would be NBA basketball. To jump on the LeBron bandwagon, I just have to laugh at the Cleveland owner's reaction. How can he not have known (as... Sign in to see full entry.

NHL Playoffs Round 3

Ok, normally when someone does predictions they do so before the event starts. I apologize that I haven't had a chance to do so until now. I have not seen the result for the first game today (you can believe that or not). Like the first round, my Western Conference predictions were right on. I'm 6... Sign in to see full entry.

NHL Playoffs Round 2

What did you think about the first round of this year's Stanley Cup tournament? In my opinion, the quality of play and excitement has been outstanding. We've seen 3 goal comebacks, late tying or winning goals, a double overtime, and some significant upsets. I had made some predicitons for the first... Sign in to see full entry.

Is it September Already?

We have completed two weeks of the Major League Baseball Season as I write this in mid-April. However, as I look at the standings one would think it is mid-September. I say this because as you look at the standings things are exactly as most people predicted they would be. The Yankees, Twins,... Sign in to see full entry.

A Better NHL Season

The NHL Playoffs have begun and have already provided some very exciting hockey games. It is amazing how much the quality of play increases dramatically once the playoffs begin. It is noticeable from the first game all the way to the finals. I heard a discussion on radio today on what can be done to... Sign in to see full entry.

NHL Hockey Playoffs

It's funny how exciting sports moments seem to happen in bunches. We recently witnessed the conclusion of a very exciting college basketball tournament. Now we begin another one of the most exciting part of the sports year, the NHL Playoffs. This two month long tournament is known for its annual... Sign in to see full entry.

"Master" of this Tournament

I must admit I am not much of a golf follower. However, with this or any sport, I love to see the good guys win. Early in his career, Phil Mickelson had difficulty winning the big one, but the Masters is a tournament that he has consistently had under control. Now for the third time, he has had more...

You Heard It Here First

I've always been fascinated by predictions. It's a bit late, as the baseball season has already started. Anyway, here's my take. Some are by the book, some are a bit different... AL East 1. Yankees 2. Boston (WC) 3. Tampa 4. Baltimore 5. Toronto AL Central 1. White Sox 2. Detroit 3. Minnesota 4.... Sign in to see full entry.

What If...

The events of a few days ago made me think. What if Gordon Hayward made that last second desperation shot in the college basketball championship game? There are many "what if" questions in sports. We here in Buffalo ask, what if Scott Norwood made that last second field goal attempt that went wide... Sign in to see full entry.
