Women’s World Cup Qualifying Leaves Something to be Desired

This summer, the eighth Women’s World Cup will be held in France, and the sport will once again come out of the shadows. This cycle has been a little bit different, especially for Americans, as the men’s team’s failure to qualify for Russia 2018 was compounded by the fact that the women’s team is more...

The 2018-19 NBA Awards Predictions

Since J.R. Smith’s Finals screw-up and the Golden State Warriors’ subsequent sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers back in June, we have been witness to a far tamer offseason than the epic blockbusters of recent years. Superstar free agents like Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Joe Harris, and Paul George decided to remain with their respective teams,...

Growing Pains in Oakland

Following Sunday’s devastating loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, one cannot help but think “what the heck is going on with the Raiders?” This season was supposed to be somewhat better than last year, wasn’t it? What is Jon Gruden up to? And once again, why did the Raiders trade Khalil Mack, who is well-off...

Safety Not Free: Abolish the Body Weight Rule

This year’s football season has been full of questions, such as: What’s wrong with the Steelers? How do the Browns have a better record than the Patriots? Why didn’t Patrick Mahomes start last year? But most pressingly, when did the NFL become so soft? This is the first year of the NFL’s new “body weight...

Champions League Reactions: Matchday 2

As the groups begin to take shape, about half of my Matchday 1 reactions seem very foolish now. I’ll still try again for Matchday 2, which at first glance seems much more interesting to me, but we’ll see if I still feel that way at the end of this piece.   Group A Borussia Dortmund:...

Butler to the Big Apple?

As the start of the 2018-2019 NBA season draws closer, the question arises as to what will happen to Minnesota Timberwolves all-star Jimmy Butler. Butler recently expressed his desire to leave Minnesota. Though not certain, many speculate that the cause might be the discord in the locker room between Butler and teammates Andrew Wiggins and...

The American League: One Month Out

The American League: One Month Out

By:

With every passing day on the slow march toward October, the American League playoff contenders look more and more clear-cut. Here’s my take on the AL heading into September: AL East At this point, it’s Baltimore’s division to lose. The O’s keep picking up steam and lead the second-place Yankees by six games as of…

Formula 1: British Grand Prix Re-Cap (Ouch, Kimi!)

Formula 1: British Grand Prix Re-Cap (Ouch, Kimi!)

By:

Ouch is right. After just four corners, Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen, the Iceman himself, took a turn wide, bumped back onto the track, and crashed at 150 miles per hour. The crash was immense. It’s said he experienced more than 47G—47 times the force of gravity—as he slammed into the wall, taking Williams Martini…

24 Hours of Le Mans 2014 Re-Cap: Next time, Porsche

By:

This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans looked to be an awesome one. Narrower tires. Hybrid prototypes galore. Five-time consecutive winner Audi was back with the R18 e-tron quattro. Challenger and last year’s second-place Toyota wanted the trophy. Most importantly, Porsche was returning to Le Mans after a 16-year absence: [youtube id=”=_3u_14CXSDg” width=”600″ height=”350″] In recent…

SPOILERS AHEAD! Quelle course et un Grand Prix fantastique! Even for casual viewers, the 70-lap Montreal Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was quite a spectacle. For the first half or so of the race, Montreal looked to be another cut-and-dry Mercedes one-two finish. But, as Eric Cantor is well aware, nothing ever goes according…

The Metropolist: Ranking Cities in Sports

By:

Many power rank teams, but few rank cities.  Halftime hopes to change that.  This ranking will look at the five cities which have had the best month in sports, and the one which can take comfort in the fact that at least it is not Cleveland.  It will be biased, arbitrary and confusing, but maybe…

For a while there, it looked like the Washington Wizards may have had a shot at making the Eastern Conference Finals. But, it was not to be. This season, for Washington, ended short of the proposed goal of every franchise: a championship; but here in the Nation’s Capital, we’re still celebrating. On paper, the 2013-2014…

Every baseball fan has at least one particular missed call that sticks in their mind and has no plan on ever leaving. For me it came in game two of the 2005 American League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Angels and the Chicago White Sox. Bottom of the ninth, two outs, game tied at…

The NFL draft is fast approaching and if you ever tune in to ESPN or a similar sports network you’ve surely seen the hype machines talking up or down certain prospects.

Elgin Baylor: The Father of Flight

By:

Because sports fans are obsessed with categories, we tend to associate each basketball position with a specific set of skills and responsibilities. The center towers over the rest and sparks fastbreaks by grabbing rebounds, while the power forward provides the muscle of the team. The shooting guard hits jump-shots and plays great defense, while the…
