Heisman note

I just wanted to point ot this New York Times story on two of the Heisman finalists -- Reggie Bush and Alex Smith -- who happened to be high school teammates. That high school is also my alma mater Helix High School.

Last night's big winners

Who were the biggest winners last night? ABC and the NFL. With a hockey game breaking out at the Pacers/Pistons game, the dropped towel from Monday Night Football will be completely forgotten. ESPN showed the brawl over and over again on SportsCenter and it's certainly the biggest, ugliest fight I've ever seen in professional sports. […]

Keep on rollin'

The No. 5-ranked Cal Poly Mustangs are now 7-0 after defeating the North Dakota State Bison 13-10 at Fargo. Today's quote of the day comes courtesy NDSU quarterback Tony Stauss. Stauss, who transferred to NDSU from Northwestern, called Cal Poly's defense the best he has ever seen, "including Ohio State." Stauss may be overstating it […]

Olympic Mens Basketball II

A Wall Street Journal editorial today gives the USA mens basketball a well-deserved spanking over their poor play. The shooting and passing skills that once made the game a pleasure to watch have given way to inside wrestling and one-on-one showboating. A modern NBA game often resembles water polo without the artistry. These weaknesses get […]

The Olympics

I'm generally cool to the Olympics as they have been presented by NBC for the past couple decades. It's a sporting event -- cover it like one. Setting that complaint aside, I'm watching synchronized diving. Why? There's no underwater basketweaving on. I'm of the opinion that synchronized anything isn't a sport. Heck, I thought curling […]

Men of letters

The big news at yesterday's Scrabble Championship was one participant's use of a slang term for lesbian: "lez." Though it is a word, it is on Scrabble's naughty list -- not to be used in a tournament aired on ESPN. What I found particularly amusing, however, was another naughty word -- one that apparently wasn't […]

Lessons not learned

Since the first Dream Team took the court in 1992, USA Basketball has been the next incarnation of sports dominance -- following the Soviet hockey teams of the '60s and '70s. Well, the latest group of professional All Stars showed what they're made of last night when they got their butts kicked by the Italian […]
