What’s in store for the Utah Jazz?

On July 4th, a flurry of confusing reports culminated in Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward announcing his decision to join the Boston Celtics.

A Bright Present and Future for the Boston Celtics

NBA Offseason Winners and Losers

By all accounts, this was the wildest NBA offseason we have ever witnessed. It kicked off back in June with what experts are calling one of the deepest and most talented draft classes in recent memory.

The Winter Olympic Games give Americans an extra chance to come together and celebrate our American-ness while watching athletes representing the Stars and Stripes overseas winning medals in events that we can only sit and watch in awe.

The ESPN Box Score merely says, “0:01, 109-111, Kevin Durant makes 12-foot two point shot.” Your eyes see a lanky swingman taking a pull-up fade-away jumper over 3 defenders with menacing ease. Just like that, the Oklahoma City Thunder have beaten the Atlanta Hawks and won their eighth straight game. The reason watching Kevin Durant…

Although I call myself the greatest Jeremy Lin fan in the world, I regret to say that I did not take the hour and a half trip to see his documentary, Linsanity, when it debuted in October 4, 2013. My pre-ordered copy of the movie, however, arrived during the weekend so I finally had the…

Pro Bowl or No Bowl? What to do before next year

I made it through watching almost the full first half of the NFL’s Pro Bowl this year, which is an improvement upon last year’s viewing. I made a point to give the new format of the game a chance and committed myself to paying attention to the so-called “improvements” the league claimed it had made….

It’s hard not to be excited for the Sochi Winter Olympics, now just a few short weeks away. Spectators the world over will be wowed by breath-taking feats of athleticism in ski slalom, snowboard cross, bobsleigh (feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme…), and, of course, this year’s controversial – not to mention verbose – new…

I don’t get it. I just don’t freakin’ get it. I understand why footballers take what they can get in terms of career advancement, and I understand that a footballer only has so many good years in his legs, but, for the life of me, I just cannot understand why a slightly underrated winger would…

The Conference Championships are over and now only two teams are left standing: The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.

Both teams were…

I am in no way a Boston sports fan. Regardless of the sports season, I actually secretly hope that Boston teams fail in their pursuit of a championship. Super Bowl, World Series, Finals, Stanley Cup—doesn’t matter to me. I think my grudge against Boston sports teams originated from too many Angel losses to those damn…
