Whenever anyone finds out that I'm a fan of the back-to-back NBA champions, the Miami Heat, eventually the discussion finds a way to asking my opinion as to who's better: LeBron James or Michael Jordan?
The other day I was thinking about writing something about Tim Tebow. But then the storm hit with Manti Te'o caught in it without protection. I mean seriously, what were you thinking?. For those that may not have heard, Notre Dame linebacker and Heisman runner-up Manti Te'o's "girlfriend,"
Seriously, what were the voters for the Baseball Hall of Fame thinking? There are some people who I feel should never be allowed to be in Cooperstown unless they pay an admission fee. A few of those include Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. Then there are
When I first read that Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore were made members of the Augusta National I thought, "Good for them" and "Why didn't they offer me a green jacket?" But the more I thought about it, the more I started thinking, "Why are they ruining another tradition?"
Even though the Newton County All-Stars didn't hold the Dixie Boys World Series trophy over their heads in victory, these kids are definitely winners in every sense of the word.
There's a big protest brewing at Penn State University about whether to keep the statue of former head coach Joe Paterno outside of Beaver Stadium.
Even though I was on vacation having a great time in North Carolina (thanks Bunny and Dad), I felt like I had to voice my opinion about Georgia's former star running back Isaiah Crowell. When the news first came out, I thought: "What a bonehead."
Anyone who is a college football fan knows that the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS) is far from perfect. Let's be serious, it's just a tad better than the old system where the AP sports writers and coaches would pick the top two teams.
Just because Tiger Woods won a couple of tournaments this season a lot of people, especially sports writers, are ready to hand him the U.S. Open. As far as I'm concerned, I'm not ready to jump on the Tiger Woods bandwagon yet.
Other than Hank Aaron, there is probably not a bigger name for the Atlanta Braves than Chipper Jones. After all, he's been with the team since he got drafted in 1990.
I'm amazed at the dedication some of our local high school athletes have for their craft. While the rest of the student population will either be working, sleeping late in bed then moving to the sofa in front of the big screen, these athletes are out there practicing for hours to get better.
I can't believe that another year of high school sports is over. There's one thing for sure: I've seen a lot of excitement, as well as a lot of disappointment.. Even though Eastside's cross country team didn't win at state, they experienced the excitement of sending both squads to state
Professionally, Humber has an overall record of 12 wins and 10 losses with an ERA of 3.90. Those are not numbers that one would expect out of perfect-game pitcher.
For those that may have not heard, the Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade recently made a comment about how he felt that Olympic athletes should be paid.
