Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Part 2

Let me get the scores out of the way, because I want to depart from the usual formula.   Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern Munich (4-3 agg.) Ulreich messed up, and Bayern’s front three couldn’t finish. Real had no business moving on, but they’re in the final. Good for them. Roma 4-2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.) Liverpool...

The Case for Morocco to Host the 2026 World Cup

NBA Playoffs First Round Reactions and Look-Aheads

The first round of the 2018 NBA playoffs was much more exciting than last year’s. Lower seeds pulled off upsets, multiple series went to 6+ games, and DID LEBRON LOSE? No, just like I said. It took a lot of injuries and mishaps for the playoffs to become as chaotic as they seem to be...

Pups in the Park: A Tradition Unlike Any Other

Ahhh, baseball: This lovely country’s greatest achievement. Some people like the Yankees, while others like the Red Sox.

Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Leg 1

It’s that time of the year. In arguably the biggest week in European football, four teams play in four games to see who will meet in the Champions League final.

It’s hard to imagine that players in Major League Baseball could still be getting caught using illegal substances, but here we are, weeks away from the playoffs, and Baltimore Orioles’ power hitter Chris Davis has been busted. Thankfully, he hasn’t been using any kind of illegal steroid, but instead he tested positive for Adderall. As…

Ray Rice did a terrible thing. Nobody can dispute that.  But I question much of the attention that his crime has received. I see something of a cycle in sports reporting, and in the media as a whole.  Someone does something indisputably bad.  Analysts will then spend the next week or two telling us that…

It has been six years since Tiger Woods has held a trophy on Sunday at a major championship. During those six years, it became apparent that while Tiger needed golf, golf needed Tiger even more.
