About time to fork the 2012 Cleveland Indians

After the Cleveland Indians won last week’s series against the Detroit Tigers, not only did Cleveland fans think they could make a run at the A.L. Wildcard. They also thought that they could win the division. While I watched them play I couldn’t help but think, “Maybe this young team has found a way to…

Ichiro Suzuki, the broken crutch of terrible Seattle Mariners’ ownership

Seattle Mariners fans should feel what, about Ichiro Suzuki being traded? Now I know that he asked to be traded, but this dude was still the adopted hometown hero. You would think there would be some type of outrage toward the Mariners front office, especially since he was traded to a team who they were…

Kobe Bryant, exercising his old man filter

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers recently came out in support of Pau Gasol for some inexplicable reason. He said, “As long as I’m there, he’s going to be there.” Now I didn’t know Gasol needed support. Perhaps I’m wrong, but I don’t think real basketball games are being played. Sure there’s this Olympic…

The Daily Take: How Jeremy Lin “Slammed” the New York Knicks

NBA owners really have to grow up.  Between Cleveland, Orlando, and New York, we have a consortium of owners who just don’t “get it.”  I am completely baffled at all times by old white guys who really think they’ve bought inanimate toys.  They sit around on their carpet and like marbles or pogs (yeah, I…

No Jeremy Lin Situation

The New York Knicks had 2 choices: One, they pay a generous amount of money to keep Jeremy Lin in the Big Apple. Two, they let Linsanity walk and every greenback dollar that his sensation would have brought to the franchise along with it. There was no right choice for James Dolan. Sign Lin to…

New York Knicks are right in letting Jeremy Lin walk

Sources1 say that the New York Knicks will not match the Houston Rockets offer for Jeremy Lin. That means New York has probably seen the last of Linsanity. That also means that the Knicks may have someone in the front office with a brain. I know New York loved Linsanity, but I don’t get the…

Joe Paterno — Trapped By Legacy

  Legacy and reputation. So much stock is put into how a public figure will be remembered after he has retired. Because of this reality, most individuals will do as much as they can to ensure they are seen in a good light when all has been said and done. Joe Paterno was duped by…

Cleveland Cavaliers will lose in a 3-team trade…unless?*

A great man once said, “Three ways are never a good, because someone always leaves unsatisfied.” The Cleveland Cavaliers are in prime position to be that guy watching at the foot of the bed. If the Cavaliers end up being the 3rd team in the Dwight Howard deal, it could set back their franchise for…

Roger Federer will never be seen again

Roger Federer won his 7th Wimbledon title in typical Federer fashion. Effortlessly. The debate of whether Roger Federer is indeed the best tennis player to ever pick up a racquet will inevitably resume, most likely in Roger’s favour, in the coming days. Comparing players across generations often leads to great discussion but it’s a fruitless…

Head Over…Head for Steve Nash in Toronto

  Even if it isn’t always for the best, “the heart wants what it wants.” The hearts of Raptors fans were longing for Steve Nash in Toronto. For a 38-year-old aging point guard, this was a longing that had classic heart over head feeling written all over it. A mere month ago, you would have…
