The Sports Sermon: Warring winter factions

By:
11/19/2014

As I sit in my apartment, trying to make it through the last week before this semester’s first major holiday break, there’s only one thing on my mind: snow. Specifically, snow-related sports. Like any good Vermonter, I grew up learning how to ski and skate before I was even potty trained. My parents signed me…

Player Profile: D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera

By:
11/13/2014

Last year, the Hoyas needed then-sophomore shooting guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera to keep them from hitting the bottom of the Georgetown basketballing barrel. In 2014-2015, the team is looking to the 6-foot-3 junior to lead a redemption the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Head Coach John Thompson III took control of the team. Expectations…

The Sports Sermon: What’s in a name?

By:
11/13/2014

What’s in a name? That which we call a team by any other name would play as well… Sorry, Romeo, but in spite of what Juliet has told you, names are important. Americans love coming up with fun titles for franchises. Just check out the lower leagues for your favorite sport. Odds are there are…

The Sports Sermon: Bringing boxing back

By:
11/06/2014

I sat in my seat at DAR Constitution Hall and watched as professional boxer Michael Clark fell hard on the canvas—Dow Jones in 2008 hard, or your GPA after organic chemistry hard. D.C.’s Dusty Harrison Hernández, a welterweight fighter, stood over Clark’s sprawled body, hands held high. At that point, I exploded out of my…

The Sports Sermon: Casillas already in soccer’s pantheon

By:
10/30/2014

I recently came across an online piece written by international soccer writer Kris Voakes in the wake of this weekend’s clásico match between Spanish clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona. In a section of the piece chronicling Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas’ contributions to his sides’ 3-1 victory over their hated rivals, the writer described the Spanish…

The Sports Sermon: The dark side of pickup games

By:
10/23/2014

Playing pickup sports might be one of the most dangerous choices you can make. If you’re choosing to participate in that type of setting, chances are you don’t play on a collegiate or professional level. No one wants to risk their health in a game that doesn’t matter, but when it’s all someone has, these…

The Sports Sermon: Can’t Hide the Dollar Signs

The Sports Sermon: Can’t Hide the Dollar Signs

By:
10/17/2014

Finances are private. Everyone knows that. We learn this reality from a young age. We teach kids that asking for such information is not polite, and they, in turn, carry this attitude with them, passing it on. In American society, we’ve made the collective decision to keep personal financial information a secret in almost all…

The Sports Sermon: Scare them silly

By:
10/09/2014

Head to any peewee sports practice and the coaches will be emphasizing the values of hard work and sportsmanship to their young charges, instilling in them the upstanding values of American (and international) sporting culture. That’s all well and great if, for you, it doesn’t really matter who won and who lost, but instead how…
