, and The Sports Sermon Archives: NBA All-Star Game Preview

Found nestled deep in Parker Houston’s computer, this ancient artifact holds him, Cam Smith, and Umar Asif accountable for their horrible takes on the NBA All-Star Game. They redraft the players for the game, talk All-Star selections’ place in evaluating historical players, and remember how great T.Y. Hilton is at dodgeball. http://media.blubrry.com/voicepodcastnetwork/p/georgetownvoice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/NBAALLSTAR-22018-9.22-PM.m4aPodcast: Play in new...

The Vermont Catamounts: This Year’s Sleeper Team

You’ve heard of the blue bloods, the lottery picks, and the hall-of-fame coaches in men’s college basketball. And most recently, you’ve probably been alerted to the FBI Investigation that has rocked the sport. From November to late February, there is no shortage of commentary in college hoops, yet the storylines are usually recycled and don’t...

Trade Deadline Moves Set the Lakers up for Success

Last Thursday, the trade deadline sent the NBA into a frenzy. Most notably, the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a near-complete roster overhaul that hasn’t been seen in recent memory, especially for a team competing for a championship. In an effort to secure LeBron James’ fourth ring, the Cavs unloaded Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Dwyane...

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive Much Needed Upgrades

The Cleveland Cavaliers have completely exploded. When Kyrie Irving requested a trade last summer, the balancing act that LeBron and the Cavaliers’ front office have been playing for years finally came to the brink of its death. The team lost one of their big three, and ended up trading him for the package of Isaiah...

New Lions, Who This?: Three Keys to Success

The Detroit Lions made several moves this off season to improve their coaching staff, hopefully putting them in contention for a title. The Lions recently parted ways with Head Coach Jim Caldwell to make way for new leadership within the organization. Lions general manager Bob Quinn praised Caldwell during his season-ending news conference, but said...

For the first time in 2018, the Tobacco Road Rivalry takes the stage. On Thursday at 8 p.m., No. 9 Duke takes on No. 21 North Carolina in Chapel Hill. As always, there is far more at stake at the Dean E. Smith Center than another victory in the win column. The two schools are...

Here at Mr. Jefferson’s University, we have a lot to be proud of.  Academically, we’re the best public university in the country, no matter what the hippies in California will tell you.  Our McIntire School of Commerce produces the best and the brightest in the financial world*, and, of course, we have a UNESCO World…

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. Before the season, this was an extremely popular Super Bowl pick, as both teams seemed poised to go all the way in the ‘sophomore’ campaigns of each of their very talented quarterbacks. 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…

I thought it would be interesting to imagine how the New York Knicks would behave if they celebrated Christmas, family-style. The setting is Mike Woodson’s house. Woodson sits in a bathrobe, bleary-eyed, dreading the arrival of the various members of his team in a few hours. Suddenly, the doorbell rings. Woodson walks to the door…

Only a few weeks ago, NBA fans everywhere were again forced to understand just how valuable draft picks and draft position is in today’s NBA. Certain franchises have realized that it is much easier to draft the next Kevin Durant than it is to convince him to come in as a free agent. In many…

Hearing that Major League Baseball’s general managers had unanimously agreed that the league should move toward banning collisions at home plate struck an uneven chord in my mind earlier this week. There has been much talk about a new rule like this in Major League Baseball for quite a while now, especially ever since Buster…
