The Battle for 1st in the AFC West

By robertanchor, published on Dec 13, 2011

It looks like the NFL has a battle going on in the AFC west, and it wont be over till the final week of the season. It’s been a tight race to the top of the division and it seems that neither of the teams are giving ground. A division that’s been somewhat predictable these past several years; suddenly has started to take on a new shape. The former AFL West franchises have been dominated primarily by the San Diego Chargers, who back in 1964 won the AFL Championship after a land slide victory over the then Boston Patriots. A team that once spent one season in Los Angeles was put in AFC WEST division... (more)

Why Don't We Write?

By robertanchor, published on Jul 14, 2011

Why Don’t We Write?

What is it that prevents us from writing the very words that cloud our minds in the moment of inspiration?

Is the fear that what we have to say may seem relevant and hold purpose to ourselves but not others?

Is it that we fear that what we feel so passionately about may evidently fall upon deaf ears?

Before we allow ourselves to dream bigger than any physical wall which could separate us from the things we most desire, too often do we chain ourselves down before we can even leave the grounds of our true potential.

In our hearts we understand... (more)

Will Baseball Ever Have Another Golden Era?

By robertanchor, published on Jun 11, 2009

 As the presence of time has swept us along through histories halls, we have witnessed many of our proud legacies overshadowed by what we have tried to create, a better and more entertaining game of baseball. 

 The days of the 1930s through the 1960s seem to have vanished before our generation’s very eyes, never to be witnessed again. The players that once played the field like giants have come and gone, and all we have left is the legacies of their greatness. Players like Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson, Bob Gibson, and Babe Ruth, who left our fathers and mother’s enamored, have also... (more)

Sports And The Stories They Write

By robertanchor, published on Jul 1, 2008

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.

Giants Try To Erase Bonds

By robertanchor, published on Mar 29, 2008

It was just last season that the world held witness to one baseball’s greatest, yet most controversial feats, as Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants hit home run 756 to break Hank Aaron’s all time record of 755. Today Barry Bond’s, who was once revered as a symbol of greatness for the Giants Franchise, now is represented around the stadium no more. AT&T Park, which at one point proudly presented itself as the home of the new home run king, by placing banners praising Bond’s chase for the record on the field wall and throughout the stadium, has recently... (more)

Warriors Keep Rolling

By robertanchor, published on Dec 1, 2007

On a night that many critics said that it would be the end of the warriors ride to 500, the Warriors once again left them with their feet in their mouth. Coming into the game on the backs of “Captain Jackson” (Stephen Jackson) and “The Body Guard” Baron Davis, it was obvious that there was definitely work ahead for the Golden Sate Warriors, who’s game up until this night had been fueled my passion. The Warriors established the usual up beat tempo of the game and kept Houston on its heels for a majority of the period. Elusiveness and speed both on defense and offense,... (more)

No.2 CAL's Shot at Number 1 Gone!

By robertanchor, published on Oct 14, 2007

The fight for number one is now over, and another victim of the top seed spoof is the Bay Area's own California Bears. 

The Bears were cut short of victory when an unexpected decision by the freshman QB Kevin Riley decided to go for the win by rushing to the end zone and not throw the ball away, leaving no time left for a last chance field goal which would have tied the game. 

Going into this past Saturday, the number 2 ranked team in the nation was perceived as the favorable victor over the Organ State Beavers, despite the absence of first string QB Nate Longshore.... (more)

A Dark Time In American Sports History

By robertanchor, published on Jul 27, 2007

There is no question that this month has probably been one of the darker months in sports since the Black Sox scandal back in 1919. All throughout this July there has been an ongoing chain of events with one being overshadowed by the next. The consequences of these events have been serious, and have either sparked harsh punishments, or investigations carrying potential charges. Never in a period of only one month can I remember there being so many negatives cases occurring within such a short time. Though it may be hard to say, it appears that at this point in time, sports history seems to be... (more)

How Will Tim Donaghy Investigation Effect The NBA?

By robertanchor, published on Jul 23, 2007

What’s to happen to the image of the NBA now that Tim Donaghy is being investigated for fixing, and betting games, which he officiated in? This past week has been a dark one, and one that has brought more negatives than positives for the NBA and David Stern. It is hard to imagine that corruption has now not only leaked into the politics of this nation, but now into the sports we find so pure. It is hard to imagine how corruption now has not only leaked into the politics of this nation, but also now into the sports people once found pure. No matter where people seem to seek competitive enjoyment... (more)
