Shelley At Ridley Scott’s age (incredibly, he turns 80 this year), it seems natural to ponder subjects like death, destruction, and meeting one’s creator. Scott has spent a career creating; like the Engineers in Prometheus (2012), he may be fascinated or afraid of...

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.
