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. More importantly, it’s about the brutal, zero-sum nature of sports, and how all the work...

The Unforgettable Troy Tulowitzki

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.

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...

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. There has been much talk about a new rule like this in Major League Baseball for quite a while now, especially ever since Buster…

In just a few short weeks, the 2014 Winter Olympics will begin in Sochi, Russia.  There will be curling and Jamaican bobsledders and a less tomato-ey Shawn White, but mostly this marks the return of Olympic hockey.  Last time around in Vancouver, Team USA made it to the gold-medal game on the back of goaltender…
