Accentuate the positive

It’s natural for friends to diss each other’s team. If you don’t diss your friend’s team, even the two-time defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, people might start to worry. So, as the guys gathered to watch the family film of the year, Sin City, one of my friends made an offhand comment about […]

The NFL draft: overblown

It’s time to play the contrarian and write about the reasons why the NFL draft is overblown. The expanded two-hour ESPN SportsCenter draft coverage gave me plenty of ammunition. There are no marquee players in this year’s draft. ESPN is trying their little hearts out to make Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers look like Peyton […]

Monday ramblings

Yesterday I correctly predicted that the White Sox would lose their series finale for the fourth-straight time this year. Where was my bookie when I needed him? Note to wife: I have no bookie. ESPN’s daily NFL draft preview SportsCenter show will be two hours a day starting today. I need to be in mid-season […]

NFL draft and poker

I’m a confirmed NFL junkie. I just read that 1.13 million hits were registered on the day that the 2005 schedule came out. I had the schedule two hours early. Millions of fans are in fantasy leagues. I’m in four. If I join any more I might have to go into rehab. Some fans […]

NFL Draft noise

If you think that football fans aren’t obsessed, you aren’t checking ESPN’s schedule lately. It’s hard to believe that they’re showing anything except for Yankees/Red Sox games but it’s true. This week ESPN started on one-hour Sportscenters focusing on next week’s draft. Some of the best NFL talking heads who only occasionally screwed up a […]

The ‘other’ Sox

While the Red Sox’ fans are punching outfielders, White Sox fans are enjoying the start of the 2005 season. An 8-6 loss to Cleveland puts the Sox at 6-3. They’ve won two out of three in every series so far this year. What’s impressive is that they are churning out one-run wins, the kind of […]

Kill shot

Last night I went to play racquetball. I fortified my game by buying goggles. The last time I played I matched up with a decent player and came away with a couple of victories. Considering that I hadn’t played since the 90s and that my racquet is in its second decade, I had a mild […]

History witnessed at Turner Field

I think of myself as someone who’s rarely in the epicenter of history. Last night I could not avoid a collision course with destiny. Sure, empty seats are par for the course on a weeknight in April. This was fan apathy at its finest. Last night’s attendance for the Braves’ first matchup with the Washington […]

Off weekend

I know it probably disappointed my audience of three, but I took the weekend off. I was in sunny Gatlinburg, Tennessee. If the Gulf Coast is known as the Redneck Riviera, Gatlinburg is its inland cousin. I fought the urge to visit the Salt and Pepper Shaker and the Dukes of Hazzard Museums. I did […]
