OK, here’s the question, say you got a job but you are not very good at what you do (we will pick at random, oh, being a quarterback in the NFL), you got the support of your boss and your co workers and you are really trying, but not cutting it for the simple fact that your skills are lacking and sub standard, but instead of the usual grumblings and……wait for it……Monday morning quarterbacking, the … Read more

I would bet that a large percentage of our readers played sports in school. For the sake of the post I will even accept kick ball in middle school but I’m thinking more along the lines of high school or even college. I did both and for the last few years coach the boy’s tennis team at my local high school. Most high school coaches are payed employees, although they are usually teachers first and … Read more
I realize that doing another post on the hypocrisy of the media and how they handle (mishandle) their employees who don’t tout the party line and dare to say something not authorized in “The Handbook” is analogous to doing another “dog bites man” story, but when they mess with my Monday Night Football, I get a bit testy.
ESPN is known for two things, their superlative handling of all things sports ( I realize not … Read more
All I can say is………about time.
College football partially started last night (Now that they got a QB, how good are those Badgers going to be this year?) with the rest starting tomorrow, with bowl implications already on the line. To wit: Oregon/LSU at Cowboy Stadium. I’ll be honest, I thought The Ducks were the best team in the nation last year but they were tight in the national championship game and gave it to … Read more
Nothing builds diplomacy and good will between nations more than a right cross to the chin and a stomp in the nuts on a hoops court:
At the same time as Vice President Joe Biden is visiting Beijing in hopes of improving relations between the U.S. and China, another group on a goodwill trip from Washington encountered an unexpected diplomatic hiccup.
Georgetown had to leave the court during the fourth quarter of its exhibition
Interchangeably, I’ve heard this definition for both integrity and character ,”Doing the right thing when nobody’s looking”. Ben Franklin defined it as extending a kindness to someone who, because of his status, could not elevate yours. We see too many examples of people’s failings in this department. Here is a boy his parents can be proud of:
Getting a baseball at the stadium is a big deal, giving up that baseball because it would mean … Read more
I need a second opinion. Does the fact that I am following the FIFA Woman’s World Cup in Germany make me out as an abject pussy? If I was to add that I usually don’t watch female sports as a general rule (Olympics don’t count) but the US woman’s team has had success in soccer, and there is not much else going on now in the sports world, does this get my man card renewed?… Read more
A lot of stuff is going on right now in the world of sports, got something to say about it?
First up, auto racing. I’m not a big fan of NASCAR or Indy car racing, but this weekend, I should have been.
In Charlotte Dale Earnhart Jr. would have given his left (pick your body part) for a half gallon of gas:
At Indy a rookie made a rookie mistake, and just like Dale, where … Read more
The term “world’s greatest”, at anything, has always been a fun road to go down, providing fodder at the local pub or dinner parties. Some sports records are so incredible in it’s individual feat that they have withstood the arrows of time, and some may never ever be broken. Joe Dimaggio and his 56 game hitting streak, Wilt Chamberlain and his 100 point game record, even Bob Beamon jumping out of the stadium at the … Read more
