UK Leaving SEC

There is a truly astounding story about to break regarding UK basketball. It is way bigger than Coach Cal’s 1st 90 days. Even bigger than Xavier Henry as a possibility in Wildcat Blue.

E5, TWill & Jodie: The Future

Corrected 6/30 6:13 am Imagine my surprise. The Film Babe and I are sitting in a hotel room after dinner with friends in Chicago last Thursday. I turn on the draft to check on how the local trio fared. My sweetie says, “This is kind of fun to watch.” Of course she’s got a crush […]

One & Done should be None & Done

Revised 6/23 10:15 am Word now is that Isiah Thomas and Florida International no longer have prep pariah Lance Stephenson in their sights.

Woe is We, Woods didn’t Win

But hey, we run his picture anyway, because that’s what we do with sports these days: Show the Stars! Frankly I could care less about golf. Especially watching golf on TV. Except, of course, for the majors. Which I watch because I’m a sports fan. And because I need to keep this blog breathing until […]

Hoopdom’s Current Strangest Bedfellows

Wiseguy Peter Vecsey in the New York Post reports that prep pariah Lance Stephenson spent a recent weekend at, of all places, Florida International. You know, the kid that every school has backed away from as if he carries both AIDS and Ebola Virus. Add the Swine Flu too. You know, the school where Isiah […]
