Yankee Hopes Rest With Experience (NYCBL)

When Coach Mike Kelly’s Webster Yankees take the field Thursday in their season- opener of the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL), he will rely on his team’s experience to pick up where they left off last year.

Wisdom From Woody Harrelson and Other Questions

If Pac-Man Jones receives a full-season suspension (as he should) without a formal arrest, then why does Tank Johnson, who has been arrested, only receive an eight-game suspension? Why are people complaining about Lou Piniella being fiery? Isn’t that what is expected? Why do people want Joe Torre to suddenly abandon his laidback managing style […]

Where Does This Fit?

Who Is The Athlete That You Go Out-Of-Your Way To Watch?

Brett Fah-ve-rah comes to mind for me. I don’t remember ever being a fan of the Green Bay Packers. Of the 70’s Packers only Chester Marcoal sticks in my craw. I had heard and read stories of the great Vince Lombardi. I loved seeing video clips of the famed ‘Frozen Tundra’ game. They play in […]

Team Name Game

Okay we’ve done this before. The rules have been modified ever so slightly. Now we play the game using the names of teams (professional and amateur). Take the first letter from the last name and continue the chain (defunct and minor league teams are more than welcome). I will start us with the Golden State […]

Round And Round It Goes…

Where it stops, the sports world never knows. So many topics to discuss. Where should we start? I find myself scratching my head when I see so many media outlets beginning discussions of the 2008 NFL draft. Yes, you read that right: the 2008 draft! What is this? New car sales! 2008?!?!?! This must be […]

Another NBA article – I can see Muels rolling his eyes. Be patient m’amigo we’ll get back to your topics. Besides I am waiting for you to weigh in on the Letterman and Weis stuff below. I grew up on the ‘70’s NBA. A time when many games were seen via delayed broadcast. Friday nights […]

Jr. Rhinos Do Battle In The Empire Cup

Coach Rene Tadal’s squad looked to continue their winning ways from last weekend’s Northern Ohio championship. The team’s Saturday morning wake-up call came in the person of the Pittsburgh North Stars, and by the time the Rhinos responded they found themselves facing a three-goal deficit. The North Stars controlled the first half of play and […]
