I am so excited about the Dodgers being in the National League Championship Series that I can’t even tell you. I have waited 20 years for this to happen and tomorrow it is finally here. I was very hopeful of their chances against the Phillies until I went down to collect the mail this afternoon. When I saw Manny Ramirez on the cover of Sports Illustrated, I nearly lost control of my bowels.

Nothing will kill a team worse that the SI cover curse. You think the Chicago Cubs are cursed? Steve Bartman is their guardian angel and the legendary goat is a blessing compared to the Sports... Read More

If you have ever seen the film Rudy, then you know that it’s about a kid who wills his way onto the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team against incredible odds. Rudy is a 1993 film directed by David Anspaugh. It is an account of the life of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger who harbored dreams of playing football at the University of Notre Dame despite significant obstacles. It was the first movie the Notre Dame administration allowed to be shot on campus since Knute Rockne, All American in 1940. In 2005 Rudy was named one of the best 25 sports movies of the previous 25 years in two polls by... Read More

The drama of sport, as Jim McKay used to remind us weekly, is both “the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat.” As I’ve waxed most recently, the current crop of sports commentators hired to deliver this drama to us is often so eager to dumb it down and spoon feed it to us, that they often jump to conclusions that are not only premature but frequently wrong. But just ask, Vinko Bogataj, defeat sells; over and over again, actually. But in the case of Alicia Sacramone, and the women’s team gymnastics final, both the live commentary and the post event interviewer... Read More

Lately, I've read my share of pundits waxing on about the over-commercialization of the Olympics. And I've endured at least a year of political protest and political impact stories about these latest Games. To be certain, it is globally and historically significant that they are being held in the epicenter of communist China, Beijing. Despite my initial skepticism, this edition of the Summer Games is very much China's "coming out party". Which they are in dire need of.

The last time most of us remember China in the world news involved the same Tiananmen Square prominently featured... Read More

My Thursday morning started with ESPN’s SportsCenter; watching the spectacle that Brett Favre has lately become. At his first press conference, as a member of the New York Jets, Brett took some parting shots at the Green Bay Packers that traded him this week. Perhaps the sleepy fog had yet to lift in my head. Did I miss Brett taking sole responsibility for initiating the events of the last couple of weeks, while I stumbled to get my first cup of coffee? I can’t recall a recent sports figure that’s caused me to shake my head and laugh under my breath more than Brett. I sadly... Read More

While Dodger fans are obviously psyched about getting Manny Ramirez, the fact remains that this team is still not ready to make a run at postseason play. There are still way too many questions marks, one of which has to do with the physical condition of Nomar Garciaparra.

For the past few seasons, Nomar has been unable to stay off of the disabled list. This seems to happen to many players in his age group. Once the injury bug hits, it becomes an ongoing thing. Nomar has had a long list of ailments and every time it seems as though he’ll be able to play on a regular basis, something... Read More

My trainer was passing out flyers at the gym the other day announcing a boxing show that was being held on Saturday- July 19, 2008. It has been a while that I haven't been to a fight and I was going to go. This wasn't just an amateur boxing event. I had a good reason to go because two of my stabble-mates were competing. Even though they train at another gym we are still stabble-mates because we have the same trainer. His name is Charles 'Chilli' Wilson. Everybody knows him simply as Chilli. So I had to go or rather I needed to go... To support them.

This event is the first annual CYAL... Read More
