Hump Day Sports Shots: Hurrahs and Harrumphs

It seems like everyday there’s some new rating coming out in an attempt to put some aspect of life into more hierarchy than it really is. Lots of them are sports related. As if anything matters other than performance on the field, diamond, pitch, court or ice. Most are pretty stupid. Example A: This season’s […]

Derby Week Sports Update From Afar

At this moment, I’m not in Louisville, but in New Orleans. I think you knew that. I’m drinking a Tuesday morning cup o’ joe, in a city that took its coffee seriously way before Seattle told us we must. Along with it, I’m enjoying a cinnamon scone, which contains significantly less than an ounce of […]

Monday Morning QB: Brotherhood Day

Let me be the first to make a year end prediction. Yes, I’m looking ahead 11 and 1/2 months. Hey, I got the blog. I got the keyboard. I’ll do what I wanna. My prognostication: If Indiana wins the NCAA basketball tournament, mentored by the brother-in-law of you know who and you know who, the […]

Sunday Sound Off: The Full Manti & Much More

Here’s some perspective, Louisville Cardinal faithful, on yesterday’s home L to Syracuse. Fourteen teams in the Top 25 lost last week. And that doesn’t include not-in-Top-25 Wisconsin, who gave a Top 10 performance in Bloomington before going Bottom 150 in a loss to Iowa. It’s conference play time. So much fun it is. * * […]

Te’o Armstrong Syndrome: The Amends Process

Bicyclist/ cancer survivor Lance Armstrong and Notre Dame linebacker Monti Te’o are in the news. For personal conflagrations that have captured the public’s attention. Their situations are not dissimilar. Because their situations transcend the world of sports, I have weighed in at my web site, rather than here at Score. You can read my perspective […]

Tuesday Tidbits: Tsouris On Tobacco Road +

Okay for those of you not fluent in Yiddish, the definition: Tsouris translates as trouble, distress, heartburn from the outcome of a stressful situation.  It’s a feeling to be avoided at all costs. Well, it’s what those hallowed Tobacco Road superschools are feeling these days. At least that’s what right minded observers of the sports […]

Thursday’s Hot Sports in the Summertime

Well, I’ll be honest here. I’ve been blindsided by the commencement of Olympic competition . . . without my requisite cache of beverages, chips, dips and DiGiorno in the freezer or Delivery on speed dial or both. Woe is me. Soccer has started. Yesterday, the US Women Soccer team bested France after a slow beginning. […]

Seedy K’s Tuesday Titters

I ordered my Phil Steele College Football Yearbook today. So obsessively packed full of information is this, it allows me to actually write as if I know something. $14.25 and cheap at twice the price. Which is to say, despite this summer’s heat wave, I’m gettin’ ready for some football. (Though, while walking my pooch […]

Sports Sunday: British Edition + Bonus Stateside Stuff

As if to desensitize us to the plethora of shots of Big Ben we’ll be seeing in the weeks to come during coverage of the London Olympics, we were “treated” to an all Brit all the time weekend of sports. Two of the world’s great sporting events wound up today, one dominated by Brits, the […]

Monday’s Sports Musings

There’s a note sitting on my desk. It’s been here for several days. I’ve ignored it while frolicking at Forecastle. It reads “Death Penalty @ Penn State?” And, of course, while I procrastinated, the ever professional, more vigilant than myself, Rick Bozich weighed in this afternoon on the topic. With essentially the same thoughts that […]
