Congratulations Tony

Today, Anthony Keith Gwynn was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. "Mr. Padre" was the lone reason to watch an all-too-often inept baseball team growing up in San Diego. While others celebrated pennants and World Series titles, San Diegans turned out to see Gwynn stroke single after single through the 5.5 hole between the […]

Lacrosse weekend

Memorial Day weekend also happens to be college lacrosse final four weekend. I must say that aside from the Super Bowl, I probably look forward to the lacrosse final four more than any other sporting event. I must also confess I wasn't rooting for Duke. I've been a Johns Hopkins fan ever since I was […]

Barry Bonds' unnatural body

George Will has a good column in this week's Newsweek on performance enhancing drugs and San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds.

LaDanian Tomlinson won the NFL's Most Valuable Player award today and we here at Hoystory congratulate him. Just one question: Who are the two brain-dead sportswriters who voted for Peyton Manning? Seriously, I can see an argument being made for voting for Saints QB Drew Brees with all that he has meant to that team, […]

What he said

ESPN's Bill Simmons lists some presents that should be given out for Christmas and I would like to echo #5: 5. Five HDTV trucks and accompanying camera equipment Note: That's just for CBS. (Seriously, CBS, you're a major television network. Move into the 21st century and show all of your football games in HDTV. It's […]

Title IX the max!

This is a beaut. From Inside Higher Ed comes news that the National Collegeiate Athletic Association's Committee on Women's Athletics wants the practice of women's teams using male players in practices stopped. Note that these aren't the coaches pushing for this, but bureaucrats. Women’s basketball coaches overwhelmingly support the use of male players, according to […]

YELLEN: "He cares very deeply."

CASSIDY: "Then where is his plan?"
