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
I am always torn by the selection process that is used to pick the MLB All-Star teams. Since the game is in the middle of the season, a lot of times it obviously comes down to who is having the better first half. Why not take the second half of the prior season into account as well? To me, a sizzling first half does not an all-star make.
Then, you figure in the fan factor and it gets even more confusing. The fans end up picking the name players, even though they may not be having that great a year. So, between the two, you end up getting a lot of players on both squads that probably... Read More
There has been much discussion about nations boycotting the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China, later this summer. While it is true that China has human rights problems with Tibet and Darfur, and these should not be condoned, the Olympics are a time of peace. As the Visa commercial says "there are 6 billion of us. We may not always get along, but for a few shining weeks, we forget about what makes us different, and focus on what makes us the same." This is the founding principle of the Olympics. In ancient times, truces were made, and wars called off, so people could watch the Olympic... Read More
We often look to sports not realizing that were in fact looking towards the books we spoil our imaginations with. The truth is however, that we in fact drive ourselves toward the same thing which some of us rather not bother to indulge ourselves with. Like in the books and stories, which we read, a sport within itself contains all the rudiments of an ordinary tale. The realization of this hidden truth may be hard to see or admit to initially, given that both are substantially different in the ways they process. However, as you will see this could not be further than the truth.... Read More
As of this morning the LA Dodgers are just 2.5 games behind the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks in the underachieving National League West. It is amazing when you think about all the troubles the team has gone through this season. With injuries to brittle old veterans and mistakes made by unseasoned youngsters, the Bums have had multiple problems with pitching and scoring runs.
But, don’t count out the Dodgers just yet. Last night they didn’t get a single hit and still beat the Angels, 1-0. It is only the fifth time in modern baseball history that something like this has... Read More
Stefan Wever is a guy I know who owns a bar in San Francisco I frequent now and then. For the longest time, I bought drinks from the man, knowing him only as a big guy who knows a lot about sports and is fun to talk to. I saw him around town, at SF Giants games and in North Beach and he was always pleasant. I didn’t know his story until a buddy of mine told me the details.
I find his tale fascinating, because he came so close to baseball stardom at the highest level, only to have it come crashing down with one pitch. And yet, he’s completely okay with the entire experience.... Read More
