A Pair of 7s

NBA fans will get a double dosage of game 7 action as the Spurs travel to New Orleans to play the Hornets, and the Celtics host the Cavaliers. Something’s gotta give between the Spurs and the Hornets. Either the World Champion Spurs will exit early or the Hornets will surrender at home – something that […]

Friday Flick 1.6

28 years ago today Magic led the Lakers to the chan’ship. Check out the young and not so cool Pat Riley at the end. Enjoy! [youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=yYNDWaEmqto]

Home Sweet Home

Round 2 of the NBA playoffs is a great example of how important home court is to a team’s overall success. Other than a failed last-second attempt by Hedo Turkoglu home teams have taken 14 of 15 in the conference semis. And Turkoglu’s attempt seemed the result of a poorly designed set. Another example of […]

Performance of the Week (POTW) 5/5-5/11

With the Jazz down two love to the Lakers, and Carlos Boozer looking pretty average for the first two contests, the Alaskan native gave a yeoman’s effort Friday night as he poured in 27 and grabbed 20 boards to lead the Jazz to victory. Who gets your POTW?

On the brink of milestones

When the San Diego Padres host the Colorado Rockies today, Greg Maddux will take the hill for the home nine. The 42-year-old right-hander will be looking for career win 350. Begs the question: who is the best pitcher of the last twenty years? Maddux is not the only major leaguer looking to surpass a milestone. […]

Queston Du Jour

How many seconds does it take to advance a basketball 70′ while taking three dribbles, then making a pass, having a teammate dribble the ball, and making another pass before shooting?

The West is a Point Guard Lovers Paradise

NBA fans have to enjoy the point guard match ups playing out in the Western Conference. Chris Paul and his Hornets vs. Tony Parker and the Spurs, Deron Williams and the Jazz vs. Derek Fisher and the Lakers – does it make me Captain Obvious to suggest these guys are the top four at their […]

Performance of the Week (POTW) 4/28-5/4

This week’s POTW comes from college softball. Central Washington’s Mallory Holtman and Liz Wallace earned POTW by helping an opponent to victory. Huh? Did you read that right? Yes, Holtman and Wallace get this week’s honor by assisting the opposition. When Western Oregon University’s Sara Tucholsky tore her ACL celebrating her first career home run, […]

The Horses Are Out Of The Barn

Wish I could write a poignant piece about today’s 134th ‘Run for the Roses’. Any such attempt would serve as nothing more than folly. I have paid marginal (at best) attention to the thoroughbreds. Secretariat’s record-breaking runs in’73 and Affirmed fighting off Alydar to win the Triple Crown in ’78 made for great entertainment. I […]
