“Go Yankees”

I’m guilty of using a sensational headline that would catch everyone’s attention. I admit it. Surely when you read that line cheering on the Bronx Bombers, you had to think I had gone mad. What’s worse? This article doesn’t have anything to do with baseball. Least I don’t think it does anyway. Originally I planned […]

Performance of the Week (POTW) 6/9-6/15

Plenty to choose from this week. I’m going with the Dutch national soccer that crushed France in Euro ’08 pool play by a count of 4-1. Someone get me a video of that match. The Netherlands abused the French. Arjen Robben’s goal was a classic. Who gets your POTW?

Performance of the Week (POTW) 6/2-6/8

I only saw highlights, but Rafael Nadal taking down Roger Federer in straight sets (6-1, 6-3, 6-0) gets my POTW for the week. Wow! That’s like taking down Mike Tyson in his prime. Nadal matched Bjorn Borg winning his fourth consecutive French title. Who gets your POTW?
