Women and men

So, I watched the movie Crooked Arrows Sunday night after the Super Bowl. If you like lacrosse or want to know just what the heck lacrosse is, I’d encourage you to see it. Otherwise, you’ve already seen this movie done better. (It was called Hoosiers.) At the beginning of the movie, the lacrosse team from […]

The decline of men’s sports

At the collegiate level, men’s sports have been on the decline for decades ever since federal courts outlined the only safe harbor for compliance with Title IX was having the equal numbers of men and women athletes.

NBC didn’t have Keith Olbermann in the studio for this evening’s Wildcard game in San Diego. Instead, they had former Detroit Lions GM Matt Millen providing “insightful” commentary.

Cal Poly No. 3-ranked FCS football team would’ve beaten a mediocre, but bowl-bound Wisconsin if kicker Andrew “Mudd” Gardner hadn’t missed three extra points. However, the 36-35 OT loss may have been enough to earn Cal Poly a playoff seed and the two home games (providing they win the first) that comes with it. The […]

Two weeks ago Arien O’Connell ran the race of her life. The 24-year-old schoolteacher from New York City ran the San Francisco Nike Women’s Marathon in under three hours. She beat her own personal record by more than 12 minutes. Officially, O’Connell finished 26th. Twenty-five “elite” runners runners were given a 20 minute head start […]
