☛ Are We the Super Bowl?
☛ Pitchers, Catchers and the Hope of Spring
Have I mentioned American McCarver is back?
Well, it is. And I have a piece up this morning.
☛ When the home team isn't the home team
I wrote something about baseball for American McCarver.
☛ Joe Paterno and the Culture of Sports and Silence
Of course I wrote something about last night’s Islander fiasco. And I know I’m going to get a little flack for it from the Islander die-hards (mostly the ones with their heads in the sand), and it’s a little ranty, but there it is.
☛ Lex Luthor Retires as Cardinals Manager
There’s this culture surrounding sports where people are put on pedestals, held up as untouchable, infallible. Even when they do wrong (see, Kobe Bryant, Michael Vick, Ben Roethlisberger) excuses are made, forgiveness is quickly bestowed and alleged victims are forgotten. People want what is best for their team, at all costs. They want victories. It doesn’t matter if the person helping them get those Ws is an upstanding citizen or a bottom feeder of society, a win is a win is a win. Bad things are easily forgiven if it means a championship banner.
I wrote a little something about Joe Paterno over at American McCarver.
☛ Happy Hockey Season
Jason Snell nails it over at American McCarver. Bonus points for name dropping my favorite Superman villain.
☛ A little something on the best baseball night ever
My official Welcome to the NHL Season post, at American McCarver.
☛ It's a great time to be alive.
I got up at 5am and immediately tried to capture the feelings from last night. I feel like I have a baseball hangover. In a good way.
At American McCarver, I write about how this is an amazing time of year to be a sports fan.
