The impact of the MLB “juiced ball” on pitcher earned run average and predictive factors

In the early to mid-20th century, baseball was unquestionably America’s pastime. Today, we still revere stars like Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson, who were cultural icons as well as excellent baseball players. However, baseball itself has been upstaged by professional football and basketball as the sport of choice for many Americans today. This is due...

Advocacy, Sports, and Faith

Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor, and Chris Jackson may not be familiar names to most Americans or even to sports fans. However, it is undeniable that most if not all sports fans would recognize the names Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and more devoted fans of basketball would recognize the name Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. All three were...

Bayern inch closer to an eighth straight Bundesliga title with a 1-0 win in Der Klassiker

Since the Bundesliga’s restart, Bayern and Dortmund have looked like the league’s two strongest teams, coinciding with their position in the table. The Black and Yellow thrashed FC Schalke 04 4-0 and won comfortably against Wolfsburg. Similarly, Bayern beat a scrappy Union Berlin side 2-0 and overcame a 10-minute rough patch against Eintracht Frankfurt to...

The Return Of The Bundesliga: Matchday 26 recap

After two months of waiting, the Bundesliga returned to action this past Saturday. With all nine games being played behind closed doors, home-field advantage seemed to fade away from the matches. Dortmund was the only home side to win this past weekend, with three teams picking up a point. There was a noticeable difference in...

and Sports moments that make us cry

We miss sports. It is difficult to be at home and expected to remain in school, that is a given. But to do it without sports? The world is cruel. Lucy and Roman have a special relationship to things that some people consider just a game. There is just something about sports that can move...

Although I call myself the greatest Jeremy Lin fan in the world, I regret to say that I did not take the hour and a half trip to see his documentary, Linsanity, when it debuted in October 4, 2013. My pre-ordered copy of the movie, however, arrived during the weekend so I finally had the…

I made it through watching almost the full first half of the NFL’s Pro Bowl this year, which is an improvement upon last year’s viewing. I made a point to give the new format of the game a chance and committed myself to paying attention to the so-called “improvements” the league claimed it had made….

It’s hard not to be excited for the Sochi Winter Olympics, now just a few short weeks away. Spectators the world over will be wowed by breath-taking feats of athleticism in ski slalom, snowboard cross, bobsleigh (feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme…), and, of course, this year’s controversial – not to mention verbose – new…

I don’t get it. I just don’t freakin’ get it. I understand why footballers take what they can get in terms of career advancement, and I understand that a footballer only has so many good years in his legs, but, for the life of me, I just cannot understand why a slightly underrated winger would…

The Conference Championships are over and now only two teams are left standing: The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. Before the season, this was an extremely popular Super Bowl pick, as both teams seemed poised to go all the way in the ‘sophomore’ campaigns of each of their very talented quarterbacks. Both teams were…

I am in no way a Boston sports fan. Regardless of the sports season, I actually secretly hope that Boston teams fail in their pursuit of a championship. Super Bowl, World Series, Finals, Stanley Cup—doesn’t matter to me. I think my grudge against Boston sports teams originated from too many Angel losses to those damn…

I thought it would be interesting to imagine how the New York Knicks would behave if they celebrated Christmas, family-style. The setting is Mike Woodson’s house. Woodson sits in a bathrobe, bleary-eyed, dreading the arrival of the various members of his team in a few hours. Suddenly, the doorbell rings. Woodson walks to the door…
