...equivalent of a coronation festival, and I can only imagine the rich sights, sounds, smell, etc. that would accompany a week amidst this sports-fueled hedonism. There are so many things intersecting, and so much conflict and confluence. I expect I wouldn’t even want to write about the football.2. The Playboy Mansion. I’m pretty sure this is the consummate heterosexual male experience, and it’s almost certain to not live up to my expectations for it. But either taking the shine off of it, or maybe even being surprised and putting the shine back on for... (more)

The Analog, The Digital, And The High Def

By Crowbar, published on May 25, 2008

...broadband technology for faster wireless use.

The other benefit to all television going digital is twofold. One, there will be no more fuzzy pictures. Either your television gets the entire signal, or none of the signal. The age of comprising on ghostlike phantoms during the NFL football season is over. The other benefit is that there will be more programming available to those who still don’t want to pay for 400 channels. Any station now can multicast its shows on multiple networks, so instead of just channel 9, there could be 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, etc.

Should The U.s. Postal Service Comemorate Barrier Breakers

By Curtis, published on May 12, 2008

...a come back to the urban settings, its roots, and it is proper to recognize in mass those players, both African American, Hispanic and Latin American and other main stream players that have made baseball the sport it is today.

When we talk about America's Game, we instantly think of football, or basketball. Wrong, it is baseball... And it is that fact that baseball at its height generated the heros that baseball fans have an affinity with. To remember the time before high paid agents (Lawyers), and free agency, when players talking to young fans and signing slips of paper, and... (more)

Hit Of Inspiration

By Jeff Weisinger, published on May 12, 2008

...liver cancer in June of 2006 and only had no more than five months to live.

"Doc says it could be two months, could be two years," Challis says.

The kid who originally quit baseball when he was 13 because he kept getting beaned was the smallest cornerback in his Junior Varsity football league at 108 pounds.

Chalis worked hard in the weight room during the spring of his junior year, but didn't get any bigger and began to slowly lose his appetite, which contradicted Challis' passion for food.

Then came that dreadful day on June 23, 2006... it was then he was... (more)

Why The Hatred For Hockey?

By Gary Schwind, published on Apr 19, 2008

...of strikes and lockouts. Both of those leagues seems to be as popular as ever. Besides, most Americans were probably too busy watching "reality" shows to notice that hockey went missing.

Is it simply a lack of familiarity? Hockey has always been less available on television than football, baseball and basketball. That being the case, a lot of Americans haven't grown up with hockey. Add to that the fact that you don't see hockey players on a lot of ads (like Peyton Manning for instance), and it is easy to see why a lot of folks are not familiar hockey like they are with other... (more)

Still In Rain Delay

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Apr 16, 2008

... Bonds' chapter where the media paid more attention to Bonds' steroid case rather than focsuing more on the young stars like C.C. Sabathia of the Cleveland Indians and B.J. and Justin Upton.

There's the typical answer that baseabll is just not as popular, or easy to play, compared to football or basketball, in the inner-cities compared to the suburbs or small towns.

Most NCAA Division I schools do not give out as many scholarships for baseball compared to that of basketball or football.

In short, MLB is currently on pace to revert back to the time where there... (more)

The Daily Unretirement Of Brett Favre

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 10, 2008

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... (more)

A Broo Deathmatch Champion For The Ages

By Glenn T, published on Apr 8, 2008

...efforting of Bill to make sure I’ve noticed his efforts in this tournament. If anyone could turn sycophancy into an art form, it’s Bill. From the blog, to the comments, the commiserating over the loss of V to wedded bliss, and the completely forgivable fawning over Navy football – Bill was nothing if not persuasive. I wouldn’t even want to invite similar behavior from El G, because it would likely require him to plant his tongue so firmly within his cheek that he’d likely punch right through.

At some point, I thought about pulling a... (more)

Are You Gay???

By Ellis Jane, published on Apr 3, 2008

... of a meterosexual man with a vigorous aesthetic sense, or a tomboyish woman who never cared for long hair?

Pragmatically, gaydar is a very practical supposition for gays. No one wants to ask the phone number of a straight married woman, or invite to dance the straight captain of the football team. On the other side of the coin, a bachelorette does not want to embarass herself by flirting with a gay man, just as a bachelor would never want his friends to see his failed attempt to buy a lesbian a drink. As a means of defense and self-preservation, many tap into intuitions that they... (more)
