When Superheroes Pass

Tyler Skaggs, starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, died on Monday, July 1. He was 27. This news hit me like a blow. Not again, I thought. Active major leaguers have passed away too often in recent years. Especially for the Angels, who lost 22-year-old Nick Adenhart a decade ago to a car accident,...

Ryan O’Reilly and the Elusive 2C

There might not be a more important position in today’s National Hockey League than the second-line centerman. This has been especially on my mind recently because of Ryan O’Reilly’s utter brilliance in the Stanley Cup Final. Continuing to kick in the teeth of Sabres GM Jason Botterill and fans like myself after Buffalo sold low...

The Plight of No October: Yankees on the Decline

By:

Did the Yankees just lose? We don’t have the highest payroll? As the era of the Core-Four comes to a close, the Yankees appear to be sinking into mediocrity. This is a shocking sight for those of us born in the ‘90s who enjoyed five World Series championships and a run of constant relevancy. Had…

Ultimate Frisbee: It’s Actually a Sport?

By:

Who ever thought Ultimate Frisbee would enter the big leagues? A few years ago, it was questioned whether it should even be considered a sport. Now you can catch your college competing in the Ultimate Frisbee Championship on ESPN. The sport combines elements of soccer and football, resulting in a showcase of pure athleticism and…

The Final Four is here and you should be terrified. Like the Super Bowl, the World Series, and the Stanley Cup playoffs, the closer we get to the crowning of a champion, the more people will have their interests piqued. What does this mean? Well, that the clueless and the apathetic will inevitably mix in…

By:

For many, Major League Baseball’s Opening Day holds its significance for a variety of reasons. For devout baseball fans, it marks the end of a five month long hibernation for their favorite sport, which will now proceed unceasingly for the next five months (six if your team’s lucky). For others, it represents the informal beginning…

With Final Four NCAA Tournament games right around the corner and the madness tangible in nearly every conversation here on campus, it brightened my day to finally see some Major League Baseball news to pop up in the headlines. And then I read what was being announced. Miguel Cabrera had agreed to an eight-year extension…

MLB Cracking Down… Harder

MLB Cracking Down… Harder

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made a decision back in 2004 that he would take a stand against the use of performance-enhancing drugs in a big way by testing players for illegal substances and levying suspensions on those who had been caught. Back then, the penalty for a first-time offender was a ten day suspension, which…

The Big O: A Career of Defiance

By:

Today’s media would probably describe a player like Oscar Robertson as arrogant, selfish, undiplomatic, and at times an outright dick. In truth, this account of the man we remember today as ‘The Big O” isn’t necessarily wrong. Oscar was brash, abrasive, rude, and downright frightening. Despite his immense talent, he was a nightmare to play…

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. While many of my fellow Georgetowners escaped to tropical paradises in the Caribbean for spring break, dropping serious coin on beachside resorts and fruity alcoholic drinks, I flew out to the aesthetically bland Phoenix, Arizona. Far from any…

Manziel, Bridgewater, Watkins, Clowney. These are the names that come to mind when thinking about this year’s NFL draft. These players have been in front of the ESPN cameras for almost the past two years due to their professional potential and even more so for their actions off the field. It is often the case,…
