Social Distancing Sports

With many staying home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, sports fans, including myself, are trying to find ways to stay engaged.

2019-2020 NHL Award Picks

I miss hockey. Well, I miss a lot of things. I miss school. I miss my girlfriend. I miss Voice Sportz meetings. But I really do miss hockey. Sure, the Sharks were having a season from Hell and don’t even have their own first round pick. But bad hockey is better than no hockey at...

No Medals for Trying

Jerry Izenberg was a beat reporter for the New York Giants who wrote a book entitled No Medals for Trying. It’s an entire book about the Giants preparing for a matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1989, which they lost.

You shouldn’t feel bad for Troy Tulowitzki, the impossibly gifted shortstop from California. His tale is not unique – there are countless once-promising athletes who succumbed to relentless injuries. He lived his dream of playing baseball for a living, ascended to the pinnacle of the profession and made a boatload of money while doing it....

Should You Draft A Big Wide Receiver In The First Round?

Now is a fascinating time to take stock of the future of the wide receiver position at the NFL level. On a broad level, Andy Reid’s quote that the college game is generally five years ahead of the pros has proved prescient, as the Air Raid offenses that came to define NCAA football in the...

The MLB Has a Competitive Balance Issue, and It’s Related to Money and Payroll Inequalities

At the end of the 2019 regular season, the top four records in Major League Baseball should not have been a surprise: the Astros, Dodgers, Yankees, and Twins all put up 100+ win seasons, with the Marlins, Orioles, Tigers, and Royals suffering from brutal seasons of under 60 wins. In today’s MLB, this oligopoly of...

My opening caveat: Yeah, I get it. You don’t feel sorry for me. Yes, I am a Warriors fan, and I know that some part of you is gleeful as to how quickly the Warriors have fallen. There was a starting lineup of Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole, Glenn Robinson III, Eric Paschall, and Willie Cauley-Stein…
