There is a Home Run King!

And his name is Henry Aaron. Not Babe Ruth. So I don't know what all of the commotion was about Barry Bonds hitting number 714. The record is 755. And Henry Aaron has been the home run king since April 8, 1974. I saw it with my own two eyes. But, lately, I'm wondering if I really did. After all, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Sad Day At the Track

What happened to Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro at the Preakness on Saturday was one of the saddest things that I have ever heard of in sports. I did not get to see the race, which upset me because I always watch the Triple Crown races, but when I heard about it on the radio I was stunned. I grew up... Sign in to see full entry.

A New Commissioner for Baseball

The Washington Nationals finally have an owner. It only took Bud Selig a year and a half to come up with one. And who did he pick? Well, the man that he wanted to own it all along, billionaire real estate mogul Theodore Lerner. Gee, what a surprise. Along the way, the Nationals have become a... Sign in to see full entry.

Reggie! Reggie! Reggie!

How can you pass up on Reggie Bush of USC if your the Houston Texans? You already have a quarterback in David Carr, so you don't need Vince Young or Matt Leinart. What you need is a guy who can score from anywhere on the field to help Carr. Mr. Carr, meet Mr. Bush. It's that simple. He is the best... Sign in to see full entry.

Tattletales

Okay. There were many on this site and around the country who jumped all over Jose Canseco for outing major league baseball players on their abuse of steroids. Even though some of us knew that he was telling the truth. "Consider the source," said the people who didn't want to believe him. "Don't... Sign in to see full entry.

April Fools and Girls in School

My last blog was written at 12:30 Eastern time on April 1, 2006. Of course on blogit it was posted at 9:30 p.m. March 31. It was meant to be an April Fool's joke. There is no investigation into Lance Armstrong's past by the French. I made it up. Why? Because I wanted to see if I would get the same... Sign in to see full entry.

France and Lance

Just heard a report that the French are after seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong again. It seems as though they want to open an investigation into the drug test from the 1999 race that allegedly came up positive at the French anti-doping lab in Chatenay-Malabry done by Jacues de...

"Sports Illustrated" Writes Blog Article

Did anyone check out the March 27 issue of "Sports Illustrated" with Lamar Butler of George Mason on the cover? Well, in it, they have an article on sports blogs and bloggers. I haven't read it yet. Haven't had the time. Was wondering if anyone else on this site had and what you thought of it? In... Sign in to see full entry.

How's Your Bracket?

Mine is toast. But I've never been any good at picking the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Even when I really followed the game. Man, I used to have one of those big C-Band satellite dishes and would take the first Thursday and Friday of the tournament off from work. I could get the pure feed of... Sign in to see full entry.

Kirby Puckett

I just heard that Kirby Puclett died of a massive stroke suffered last night. He was only 44 years old. Damn! I never saw Puckett play in person. The one time that we went to see him, he took the night off. It was the summer of 1987 and the Twins had come to Baltimore to play the Orioles. We got our... Sign in to see full entry.
