Time to Study

I read this in Sports Illustrated a few years ago. A college football player won an award for having the best academic record on the team. Of course, being as how he was a bona fide student, he didn't play much. Accepting the award he said "I'd like to thank my parents, my teachers and most of all... Sign in to see full entry.

Non College Basketball

The University of Maryland--not my alma mater but my home state--has a graduation rate for it's men's basketball program of 0%. Zero. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. Of all the basketball players that entered the university between 1997-2000 none earned a degree within six years. That included everyone on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Fraidy Cats

I've thought about it long and hard. And there's only one conclusion I can come to. NFL coaches are fraidy cats. Whyever do you say that jollyjeff?

Some sporting opinions

Some people are calling the 2007 baseball season the greatest even, citing among other things Sammy Sosa's 600th home run and Barry Bonds' record breaking home run. Well those would be great accomplishments if Sosa and Bonds hadn't cheated to reach them. On the other hand, 2007 is starting out to be... Sign in to see full entry.

I don't know of any evidence that Bonds didn't use steroids. That makes it even clearer to me that Bonds is a cheater whose home run record in... Sign in to see full entry.

Future Hall of Famer?

Twice in the past few days I've heard Barry Bonds referred to as a future hall of famer. I certainly hope not. We don't need another cheater in the Hall of Fame. We already have Gaylord Perry. Sign in to see full entry.

New record?

With thirty-three home runs already, Alex Rodriguez has a good chance to break Roger Maris' single season record of sixty-one. Who? What? Sammy Sosa? Mark McGwire? Barry Bonds? Never heard of them. Sign in to see full entry.

Sun, Sand and Pit Bulls

I'm heading to the beach this weekend. A little swimming, a little sunbathing, a little dogfighting. Oh no wait! That's not me! That's Michael Vick! Sign in to see full entry.

Baseball's Saddest Day

If Barry Bonds breaks Hank Aaron's home run record, it will be the saddest day in baseball history. For anyone who loves baseball, the idea that one of the sport's most cherished records is about to be broken by someone who cheated to break it is hard to swallow. Sign in to see full entry.
