Steve Nash: The Long Goodbye

As long as I’ve been watching the NBA, it’s been a NBA with Steve Nash. I realize that’s not a long time. But I’m not an old person. For years Nash has been a thrill to watch. His Dallas teams tore things up in the playoffs and him and Dirk had some of the best off-the-court photographs of all time. Later came the back-to-back MVP years when his Suns looked like they might redefine everything…

Betting tips on the MLB season

It’s very much early days yet in the 2013/14 MLB season, but this is no barrier to the arguments and betting about which sides will win the American and National Leagues, or the World Series – indeed many of those debates started virtually as soon as the last season ended.

If you can’t beat the SEC… join them?

The endless years of NCAA realignment discussion seem to have died down for the moment, and the SEC has come out on top. That’s not surprising.

Classic Controversy

Arguably, it was the best one yet. Unquestionably, it was the most controversial. On December 22nd, 2012, at the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls, the Scaringis gathered for the fifth edition of the annual “Scaringi Winter Classic”. In what was a particularly exciting, fast-paced and tightly-contested hockey game, league officials had to step in a day after the final buzzer to quite possibly alter the game’s decision. On the ice, the Tony Scaring-led Dark Team…

Palmer’s homecoming shows Raiders’ win-now philosophy

The Oakland Raiders appeared to have finally found at least modest success when Jason Campbell broke his collarbone earlier this month.
