The Popovich Decision

Nov. 29 2012 will be a day forever remembered for a decision with severe consequence. The San Antonio Spurs were set to play the Miami Heat in a nationally televised game on TNT in a perennial Finals preview.

Strasburg Decision a Debate No More

Stick a fork in it, the Stephen Strasburg debate is over. With the benefit of seeing how the Nationals season ended, there is a fairly strong case that his participation on the team (had the team allowed him to keep pitching in the 2012 season), would have no bearing on the outcome and thus, shutting […]

Best of Sports 2009

I heart sports, so it’s only natural for me to run an end-of-year segment highlighting the biggest stories in sports. While I’m not here to retell any specific story (that’s what the conveniently placed ESPN links are for), I thought it would be fun to count down the Top 10 greatest moments in the year […]

Habs 100 Season

The Montreal Canadiens’ 2009 NHL campaign was supposed to be a season of hope and an energized quest towards the 25th Stanley Cup in franchise history. Coming off a 47 win year which earned the Habs top honors in the Eastern Conference last year, there was plenty of buzz surrounding the monumental Centennial season for […]

2009 MLB Season Preview

Opening Day is in the books and what better time to deliver my 2009 MLB Season Preview post. This day definitely ranks among the the top 4-5 sports days of the year on par with the SuperBowl, March Madness Thursday, NHL/NBA Playoff openers and to a lesser extent Daytona 500 and Masters Sunday. It represents […]
