For casual fans to hardcore athletes. All about Sports.
I am white. Too many of my musings require that disclaimer these days. But there it is, I am white. Therefore I have no idea how it felt as a black family to see Allen Iverson, braided and brash and black as dice craters snarl and spin his way to an MVP award.
The All-Star Break is over, the trade deadline has passed. Now it’s time for the NBA world to turn their attention to the playoffs, and more importantly, who will actually make it.
The case is actually pretty simple. If it were anyone else, and certainly anyone who wasn’t over the age of 40, a player of Jaromir Jagr’s ability would have been signed on July 1 without prejudice. With the field of available players thinning out and Jagr relegated to the bargain bin, NHL teams should relish the chance to sign the league’s No. 2 all-time scorer.
I hate the idea of having an ad put on the left chest of an NBA jersey. The Boston Celtics have agreed to place a General Electric patch on their sacred uniforms. Of all the NBA teams, I would’ve guessed that the Celtics would resist the patch — until Adam Silver threw down his quiet money-filled hammer to force the Celtics into putting some sort of ridiculous patch on the hallowed Boston jersey.
Folks, I really didn’t want to write this article. I’d been delaying it for weeks, because I don’t want to think about this.
Super Bowl Sunday’s wild, record-setting finish brought up an age-old discussion in the NFL: are the overtime rules as good as they could be? And with that, are they fair?
The Los Angeles Clippers have been looking for a new home in the L.A. area, but what if they moved East instead? What if Steve Balmer decided to move the team to the opposite side of the country in order to actually get past the second round of the playoffs before Chris Paul starts to sizzle down? Where would the Clippers go? Would they still even be named the Clippers?
It’s almost certainly not my place to say. But as a writer, I feel the need to criticize Fox Sport’s decision to move their website’s content from text and video based to solely video based.
