  1. The "King" is a fraud

    LeBron James has made two mistakes in his playing career.

    The first was turning pro right after high school, because despite all the enormous talent he possesses, he wasn't a complete player just yet. The last 7 seasons spent in Cleveland, a virtual hop, skip, & jump from his hometown of Akron, represented on-the-job training. Yes, the Cavaliers made the finals once in those 7 years, turning the corner toward shedding the "loser" label once and for all, but they didn't ...

  2. A fragile pitcher's psyche isn't confined to the Bronx

    The New York tabloids have taken the Yankees to task for bringing back pitcher Javier Vazquez, despite the fact that his first tour of duty in the Bronx wasn't so great in 2004, ending when he lost the deciding game in the ALCS to Boston. But after a stellar 2009 campaign in Atlanta, someone convinced GM Brian Cashman to bring Vazquez back for a 2nd go-round, at the expense of outfielder Melky Cabrera, who's been up & down in the first few weeks of the season playing in the NL.

  3. The Reincarnation of Kenesaw Landis

    Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis was Commissioner of Major League Baseball way back in the day, and was as hard-line in meting out punishment, most famously the 1919 Chicago Black Sox scandal, depicted in the movie, "Eight Men Out".

  4. It's not the same as it ever was

    The media can waste as much time as they want speculating on when Tiger Woods will return to the PGA Tour, but they must also learn to respect the fact that the man needs to get his life completely back in order before he does.

    When Tiger does return, however, he will be under the microscope more than ever. The dog & pony show disguised as a press conference a couple of weeks back exposed Tiger as a bit of a hypocrite. He admitted he made a mistake thinking that he could live ...

  5. And so the merry-go-round spins........

    On Monday, Pete Carroll resigned as coach of the University of Southern California (USC) to return to the NFL as coach of the Seattle Seahawks, hoping to restore some credibility to that franchise after Seattle went 5-11 in 2009.

    The ink was barely dry on Carroll's contract when USC chose his replacement. Lane Kiffin, a former Carroll assistant, bolted Tennessee to return to Cali, this after doing what most of these modern day vagabond coaches do, make promises to his recruits that ...
