What a Weird Record!

What a Weird Record!

Dude's got the gift of putting himself in the right place at the right time and having the skills to take it from there. What's more, Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane gained that talent the old-fashioned way. He worked at it. Hard. Every damn day ...

When You're Not First ...

When You're Not First ...

There's no place like home for Antonio Conte's crew. In fact, once Chelsea got settled in this season -- their only two Premiership home losses were to Burnley on 12 Aug and Manchester City on 30 Sep -- dudes are undefeated at Stamford Bridge ...

Yes, He Lost a Bet

Yes, He Lost a Bet

It's a fairly common practice in pro sports these days to schedule a theme on certain road trips. Manager Joe Maddon of the Chicago Cubs, for example, has made this his trademark. Recently, the Nashville Predators dangled a ...


Caps Are Crooning at Christmas

Caps Are Crooning at Christmas

Everybody's good at something. A select few are good at everything. The Washington Capitals are not in that group. In the spirit of the season, we'll not bring up their recent abbreviated playoff runs as an example. That just wouldn't be right ...

Kickin' 6 and Pickin' 6 in Paradise

The great thing about Christmas in Oahu is that you're spending Christmas in Oahu. Expenses paid. Who cares if the massive Aloha Stadium swallows up a crowd that looks like it's been RSVP'd? There's a game to be played and then stuff to do ...

So, Is This Dude a Righty or Lefty?

So, Is This Dude a Righty or Lefty?

Perspective is an amazing thing. In music, it literally gave us The Doors. It's crucial in the sporting world, as well as somewhat of a mystery. For example, even the scientific community is divided on clinically confirming how ...

Doin' the Thunder Dunk

Doin' the Thunder Dunk

It's not every day that a player gets two numbers retired by the same team. Too bad he couldn't have worn a few more, just to see what the Lakers would do. Odds are Jersey No 7 won't rise to the rafters anytime soon, but the dude wearing it ...


Time for a Change of Panthers

Time for a Change of Panthers

This would just be too cool. And an upgrade. Dumping 81-year-old lecher Jerry Richardson in favor of a happening dude who's got a clue or two about who's who in the zoo. P Diddy's the sorta owner the NFL needs right now ...

Ottawa Needed a Classic

Ottawa Needed a Classic

It's been a long, long year for Ottawa. Not just season. Year. Who'd ever have thought that a Canadian team couldn't sell out a playoff game? That happened to the Senators last spring. So who'd expect them to fill the barn in the ...

Why So Serious? You Scored!

Why So Serious? You Scored!
