Through the Eyes of a Sports Fan

By Raymond Lopez aka DJ_LILRAY

I grew up a basketball fan, love the sport, it was also a great time to be a fan of the game. With players like Magic, Bird, Robinson, Barkley, and the greatest of all time Michael Jordan. Over the years, basketball has really changed, not just for the game but for the fans as well. The only time I got to see all the great players of the game was when it was the all-star game or the 1992 Olympics that was a great year! Nowadays fans can see all the great players almost every game, More >

MLB Changes

By Richard Heaton aka Zanderlex

It is true that baseball is America’s pastime and has been around for well over a hundred years, but there are still quite a few changes that could better influence the MLB as a whole. For example, every few years, the world comes together to take part in the World Baseball Classic (“WBC”). The WBC is a tradition that has been going on for the past eight years and seems to be growing. However, the WBC does seem to be imposing a few challenges on MLB.

One of these challenges is that the WBC takes place during More >

Hall of Famer?

By Kyle Gillbraith aka TheNati#22

Is Ken Riley the most underrated defensive back to ever play in the NFL? I think so and here is why…

Riley played 15 seasons from 1969 to1983 all with the Cincinnati Bengals. In that time, he amassed 65 interceptions, 596 return yards off interceptions, 18 fumble recoveries and 5 interceptions returned for touchdowns. These numbers are good for 5th all-time in career interceptions and where are the 4 guys in front of Riley? All 4 are in the hall of fame, 7 of the top 11 all-time interception leaders are in the Hall of Fame 3 More >

Why Baseball Still Matters to Me

By James Friedman aka JFried1029

It seems that many of the headlines surrounding sports in general these days, and baseball in particular, are the types of things one would read on police blotters or front pages; not on sports pages. In particular, the resurgence of stories regarding Biogenesis and steroid usage in baseball have dominated the sports pages and talk radio shows of late.

While it is disappointing to see my favorite sport wash with such controversy again, baseball has survived many previous issues and came through the other side. I suspect it will again. Baseball has survived depressions, recessions, player strikes, More >

My First Ballgame

By Jacob Vance aka GoldenCards

I remember it like it was yesterday. Seven years old, cut-sleeve muscle shirt, Old-Navy blue jeans, and some rocking white Nikes on my feet.

Waiting in line in Summer Texas heat was all worth the wait because “I couldn’t wait to get an autograph from every guy on the team!.”

My dad chuckled.

As my Dad and I slowly inched to Minute Maid Parks entry doors, my heart began beating faster and faster, “Dad, we’re almost there!.”

My Dad chuckled again.

As I gave the lady my ticket to get scanned, and walked through what I called the “clicky-spinny thing”, I More >
