Our Last Blog

April 10, 2011

A few months ago I wrote about the blog being at a crossroads and not knowing where it was headed next. So many of you replied and urged me to keep at it, adding such kind and generous comments, I decided to cut back slightly but to keep the blog going. Well, now I’ve reached […]

Baseball’s Early Fallacies

April 7, 2011

It is early. Verrrrrrry early. Baseball fans have to realize that. They have to take a deep breath and not allow themselves to get carried away by what has transpired in a wacky first week of the season. Seriously, there are six l-o-n-g months to go. You can’t panic yet. You can’t jump to conclusions. […]

It’s All-Opinions Day

April 5, 2011

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine: Yes, ladies, you showed the men how it’s done. Texas A & M and Notre Dame were only miles better than UConn and Butler when it came to NCAA championship games. You go, girls . . . The saddest story in sports revolves around the Giants’ […]

How Long Can Angels Keep Up The Charade?

April 4, 2011

Yes, it is early in the season. Very early. But what is happening to the Angels now isn’t just about this season. It is about last season and the past six weeks of spring training. It is about team officials who refuse to address the obvious question. How much longer can they carry on the […]

Five Key Angels And Dodgers

March 31, 2011

The season starts, and the first thing you notice is that this isn’t Arizona or Florida anymore. Funny how the whole tone changes when you go from spring training to the real deal. One thing that hasn’t changed is that the fate of the Angels and Dodgers hinges on five key players from each club. […]

Baseball, At Last

March 29, 2011

Are you ready for some box scores? I sure am. Baseball’s Opening Day arrives Thursday, and if you write about the game, you have to make your picks. It is a sports writing ritual. So here we go: AMERICAN LEAGUE EAST 1. Boston. Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford join an already stacked lineup, and the […]

The Hero Vs. The Villain Would Be Perfect

March 27, 2011

In an NCAA Tournament where very little has made any sense, we could end up with the perfect final. The Hero against The Villain. Brad Stevens, the Butler coach who is the epitome of basketball purity, against John Calipari, the Kentucky coach who is widely viewed as . . .well, something less than the sport’s […]

Just The Facts On Friday

March 25, 2011

Some new revelations on a busy March Friday: — Guess the Pac-10 wasn’t so weak, after all. Not after its champ, Arizona, not only beat ACC power Duke, it practically ran the Dukies off the Honda Center floor in the West Regional. You don’t see Coach K’s teams get embarrassed the way the Blue Devils […]

It’s All Opinions Day

March 22, 2011

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine: This is why great teams win: Andrew Bynum is still out, so you ask Lamar Odom to step up, and all he does is score 29 with 16 rebounds to help Phil Jackson’s guys outlast the Suns in triple overtime . . . The Angels are […]

Amid The Madness, Refs Need To Be Consistent

March 20, 2011

This edition of March Madness has been lots of things — wild, fun, unpredictable. One thing it hasn’t been, though. It hasn’t been consistent, at least as far as the officiating is concerned. College basketball has to decide. Either you make all the calls, or you don’t. Either you ignore how much time is left, […]
