Road Trippin’ to Cleveland 1

Road Trippin' to Cleveland
Back in January of this year my cousin (in law) Matt and I made a road trip out to Cleveland to catch the Cavs-Spurs ABC primetime game. The trip out was easy enough, and we absolutely love to chat with topics ranging from the GOP and Democratic election cycle to sports to how to solve ...

Defending LeBron 1

Wow, it’s been almost a month since I last posted here. Sheesh. I’ve noticed a weird fact about myself lately that I’ve been trying to figure out. I have this strange compulsion to defend things I enjoy, particularly athletes. Other than defending Tiger Woods’ incredible golf skills (and certainly NOT his personal life choices), I ...

Jesus and Tiger Woods

You might think Jesus and Tiger Woods have pretty much nothing in common. Hopefully by the end of this post you’ll see they their stories are intricately intertwined. I’ve been thinking on the topic of why Jesus came – why He did what only He could do this week. It is Good Friday and all. ...

FIFA Should Be Ashamed

I hate to come off as the Angry American, upset after watching his country lose a heart breaker to Ghana, but seriously, FIFA should be ashamed of itself for the way the US team was treated during this World Cup. We had a game-winning goal disallowed for no reason. The referee wasn’t even able to ...

Good Move, Mr. Rodriguez

Unless you don’t follow sports at all, you know that Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003, a move that puts a giant blemish on his career. However, unlike many other cheaters in baseball, it only took him a couple of days to fess up. I believe this will help him a great deal, ...

Penguins Make a Deal with Satan

I saw the following on ESPN.com today, and it made me chuckle: Penguins sign Fleury, agree to contract with Satan Now, the Penguins didn’t make a deal with the Devil himself. Miroslav Satan’s last name is actually pronounced “Shatan,” but the link did make me chuckle. Hopefully it makes someone else laugh too.

Greed in Action

The definition of greed was on display over the last couple of days in the form of the Boston Red Sox players. A little background on the story for those of you who aren’t sports nuts. Boston is playing their season opening game in Japan, which is a huge deal, due to the popularity of ...

Tiger Handles Controvery

Tiger Woods has taken a fair amount of heat recently for his handling of the noose comment and its ensuing controversy. I love the way that Woods handles controversies such as these. He usually just lets his game do the talking – which is just fine with me. Woods went out and shot a 5-under ...

Michael Vick Sentenced

Today Michael Vick received his sentence for his much-publicized involvement in his illegal dog fighting “business.” If I read correctly Vick was handed down a sentence of 23 months, and according to John Clayton, he could possibly get out on good behavior after approximately 19 1/2 months. What surprised me was that, due to his ...

Sportsmanship on Display

I just finished watching the 2007 Little League World Series championship game between Warner Robins, GA and Tokyo, Japan. At the end of the game the players proved that sportsmanship hasn’t died.The game itself was close and ended up going in to extra innings before Warner Robins finished the game with a walk off home ...
