With sound speed, skill and physicality, the Chicago Blackhawks ousted the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals Monday. Within just a few hours of Chicago skating around on enemy ice with Lord Stanley’s cup raised high, droves of people took to eBay to sell memorabilia from this series. To the winner goes the spoils is the norm on eBay right now, for most memorabilia auctioning nicely belongs to the Blackhawks.

Usually everyone who follows hockey has a favorite NHL team and worships it to some degree or another, whether it be watching the games, or naming your pets after your favorite players. Though NHL is seen as the face of hockey, it always intrigues me how loyally people follow minor leagues and hometown teams. I know that there is nothing better than stopping in somewhere for a hockey game and observing the sense of ‘secluded’ community that exists, and that one die-hard fan that sits in the nosebleeds and hollers at the top of his lungs More >

The National Hockey League has had its fair share of lopsided trades over the years. Eric Lindros was drafted by the Nordiques and then traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, Ron Hextall, Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, Peter Forsberg, future draft picks and an undisclosed (but rumored to be around ten to fifteen million dollars) in cash. The Vancouver Canucks sent Cam Neely along with a first-round draft pick to the Boston Bruins for Barry Pederson.

For years and years many people have debated on which asset is more valuable to a Major League team. Some people argue pitchers, while many others vote hitters. So the million dollar question is, who really is more valuable to a Major League team? As you’ve heard a million times in the past decade, baseball is a pitcher’s game. This statement is very true in the fact that today’s pitching is the best it has ever been in Major League history. The number of strike-outs is through the roof, and earned run averages have dropped tremendously. More >

This Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, 211 young men will hear their names called from the podium, marking the start of a new chapter in their lives. This year’s draft has potential to be one of the best in decades, combining a mix of young North American and international talent. The Colorado Avalanche possess the first overall pick in Sunday’s draft. The Avs are widely being rumored to take stud center Nathan MacKinnon from the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL. MacKinnon has drawn many comparisons to a previous #1 overall pick from his More >

Last week, 9-year-old Dominick Havens was beaned in the forehead with a fastball. It hurt. I know it did. He cried.
I don’t know Dominick. I never met his parents. But, I almost cried too.Seeing that little guy lying in the dirt near home plate, holding his head and sobbing made me feel helpless.
I never had children. I don’t know what it would feel like to see something like that happen to my own son or daughter. But, for two hours, three or four nights a week, I do have kids. Usually about two dozen of them.
