The Stanley Cup Playoffs have begun, and for me this is always one of the most exciting sporting events of the year. I grew up sixty miles from Detroit, so I remember watching Hockey Night in Canada and not just when the playoffs began. To me, very few sporting events can match the excitement of an overtime hockey playoff game. However, I realize I am in the minority with that opinion. Colin Cowherd of ESPN Radio basically says that he ignores hockey because everyone else does. In a way, I get that. He seems like a very mass appeal sort of guy. Listening to his show, he only seems to like something... Read More

His ten year career, .311 career batting average and 137 home runs don't truly mark how special a career Jackie Robinson had, let alone the impact he had on the game of baseball.

The man who broke baseball's color barrier a year ago yesterday was celebrated by Major League Baseball yesterday with seven whole teams wearing Jackie's 42 and several players including Derek Jeter, Ken Griffey Jr., Gary Sheffield and Grady Sizemore wearing number 42.

However, with Jackie Robinson's accomplishment fresh in our minds, it is not as fresh on the field as Jackie would've liked.

Alright fight fans! I have a special treat for you. I was introduced to Bennie while doing my research on Jimmy Doyle. He was around at the time Doyle was fighting in Los Angeles. I called him up and he gave me his knowledge of what he remembers of Doyle. After our conversation was over about Jimmy Doyle, I began to feel a connection with Bennie that somehow I got to know him on a personal level and could get a story about him. I called him back a few days later because he wanted to find out about a certain answer in regards to my Doyle research. I took a chance and asked him "Can we meet up... Read More

If the Green Bay Packers are ravaged by injuries this season, retired quarterback Brett Favre said that he might consider returning should the NFL team reach out to him.

Is Brett Favre done playing football or not? Even though he announced his retirement last month, no one seems to be buying it. My feeling is that his heart just isn’t into it. Brett retired for some reason (maybe his wife wants him out of the game while his body is still intact), but you can tell that he really wants to get back in the game. The entire affair has reached ludicrous proportions. And the story is... Read More

Cherie Carter is a dare-devil of the skies. She has always loved speed and danger, and when she discovered Sky-diving, her life revolved around the sport.

Last year she jumped her 600th jump and she had just turned 60 years old, or is it 60 years young? Cherie will never grow old…she just does not have the time.

Every possible weekend finds Cherie heading for the Dive Zone carting her equipment in a matching bag.

Intrigued, I asked Cherie some questions.

Why does a cute little lady like you want to throw herself out of a plane?

Cherie just laughs. She... Read More

You may have thought this was a movie review, it's not. I'll leave that to DLFERGUSON. I haven't seen this movie yet, and I will eventually. You'll be surprise to know that I did audition for the part of 'McCracken' and I was beat out by Jesse Lipscombe for the role. Enough about that... This is the story of Adolph Pruitt.

I see Adolph every single day at the gym. To the ordinary man he's just another person sitting next to you on the bus. You may think nothing of it. Let me tell you! This man is a part of boxing history and most people that come to the gym don't even know anything... Read More

After pulling one of the worst choke jobs in the history of baseball (’51 Brooklyn Dodgers, anyone?) the New York Mets are better for one reason: Johan Santana. It was a major move getting the all-star pitcher and the dividends should be immediate. If he wins 15 games, it will be a disappointment, let’s put it that way. There are still several question marks on this team, however. One is age. Moises Alou, Luis Castillo and Carlos Delgado aren’t... Read More
