More on basketball

I'll be going to the San Diego State Aztecs' last home game tonight -- I fully expect them to lose to Air Force. I also expect the zebras to call the game as though the Aztecs were the away team. If you're at the game, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to hear me -- […]

Shot clock

Just got finished watching the real-life game the movie "Hoosiers" was based on -- Milan vs. Muncie Central. Watching a game that occurred more than 50 years ago, the most striking thing was the absence of the shot clock. At one point to start the fourth quarter, a Milan player held onto the ball at […]

Don't forget Gino Torretta!

More proof that ESPN's Lee "Don't forget Gino Torretta" Corso is a complete and total moron. Corso threw a major fit while being interviewed by a couple of sports radio guys in Dallas earlier this week. (Audio is here.) For those of you who are unfamiliar with Corso's nickname as I have given him above: […]

Friday Night Lights

Just got done watching the DVD and I was really impressed with the movie. It's probably one of the, if not the, best football movies made. I might have to raid the elder Hoy's bookcase and dig up his copy of the book. One thing I thought was humorous was the movie's explainer on Brian […]

Super Bowl thoughts

I always thought that the team that won the AFC would win the Super Bowl. I was right. The Philadelphia Eagles' clock management in the waning minutes was infuriating -- not because I'm an Eagles fan -- but simply because of the astounding incompetence it demonstrated. You're down 10 points with 6 minutes on the […]

College football notes

Cal, by looking like it was already hibernating when it played Texas Tech, demonstrated that it was a correct decision to give them "the shaft" and put Texas in the BCS. Utah's spanking of an 8-3 Pitt team demonstrated that they should've been playing against Auburn in the Sugar Bowl.

Reggie White died this morning at the much too young age of 43. White was undoubtedly a great football player, but he was a far better human being. Today's sports pages are too often are less about the outcome of the big game than what happened in courtrooms across the country. White wasn't one of […]

Chargers win!

The San Diego Chargers clinched the AFC West with today's 21-0 victory over the Cleveland Browns. The AP story, however, contains some hometown bias. San Diego caught a break on a questionable roughing-the-kicker call and Tomlinson scored on a plunge for a 7-0 lead. It wasn't a questionable call in the slightest. The TV commentators […]

On the op-ed page

One of these days I've got to write something really silly and then get it published on the New York Times op-ed page. Today's case in point is a piece written for the page by Will Carroll, a column for Baseball Prospectus. BASEBALL fans are understandably disturbed by the news that several top players, including […]

Someone explain this to me

I'm watching ESPN's Sunday Night Football game and they have that "Pass Track" video/graphic. It shows that a pass thrown by Donovan McNabb (which was intercepted) was travelling at 60 mph. Analyst Joe Theisman then says that 60 mph football toss is equivalent to a 101 mph baseball pitch. I don't get it. Is he […]

Why, one must ask, was the suit against Biden's student debt wipe “inevitable”?

Was it because the Biden admin is in flagrant violation of the law, and because *everyone* in America knows it?

Not in Waldman’s view, apparently. | @charlescwcooke
