What's happened this week in Minneapolis, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Columbus is shameful, and heart-breaking. And worse, there won't be enough in number, or in volume of voice, to speak out in the defense of those left to protect. That, too, is important to consider.
The governing body for Ohio high school sports issued a statement Wednesday on adult behavior at sporting events. If it was meant to rehabilitate, it came far short. We're way past the point of begging people to be better.
Struggling to make a move in the NL Central standings, and struggling to make believers out those who want to believe so badly. But the Reds biggest struggle continues to be consistency, and that starts at the top.
If you wonder why there's so many arguments, fights, and bean-ball incidents in major league baseball, look no further than a juiced-up baseball and the fools who run the game - ones that never played the game, and one in particular who's turned his back on 'the code'.
They're yelling about the the New York Giants drafting Duke's quarterback, Daniel Jones, sixth in the first round of the NFL draft. I ask the question, who's to question - Mel Kiper, Todd McShay included - before he ever plays, and why should we believe them?
After Thursday's demonstration of who's boss at Michigan State, I have one thing to say (again) to those who say that there's no place for coaches with personalities like Tom Izzo. All those (participation) trophies you have in your basement? They don't mean a thing.
We're rapidly coming to a point where if we don't want incidents to happen at basketball games that cannot be justified, or that overshadow the game itself, it's time to face the reality that bad behavior deserves consequences.
No politics, no money, no harping about a wall. College baseball starts this weekend and all everyone wants is sun and the sound of ball meeting bat. All other issues are set aside for a boys game and hope that springs eternal.
When most people die too soon they leave a lot to be determined about how they'll be remembered. Like everything else he did, Kevin Finfrock beat that rap. Everyone who really knew him remembers not only what he was, but what he grew to be.
More questions, and more conversation about officiating in the NFC and AFC Championship games. The state of Louisiana is threatening to sue. And how to make it better, if you even can. I say....I doubt it.
If you’re interested in those reality singing shows on TV (The Voice, etc.), or if you question whether American children work hard enough to showcase their skills - please take the time to watch three minutes of pianist Alexandra Dovgan.
