The Home Run Derby is always the most fun part of the MLB All-Star Weekend, mainly because it’s all about watching the biggest homerun hitters in the big leagues destroy baseballs and send them as far as they can. This year will be a great year for the Derby, with... Continue reading

Many experts have already written on this, but the Pacquiao-Horn fight qualifies as a thrown fight. I don’t know if it was fixed, but it was definitely thrown. It was a bad end to a terrific match, so unfortunately this fight will be remembered for the result, and I think... Continue reading

For the record, New York Knicks fans don’t usually have a lot to celebrate. The NBA franchise that was part of the league’s Original Six and is based in the city regarded as the “Mecca of Basketball” today is defined by a combination of inability and ineptitude.

I don’t normally write about golf unless there’s something incredibly noteworthy to write about. Thankfully, I get a chance to do just that because of what Jordan Spieth did at the Traveler’s Championship this past weekend. On the playoff hole to win the tournament, Spieth took his third shot from... Continue reading

Cody Bellinger might be the best thing to happen to Dodgers baseball since the debut of Yasiel Puig, but having a new superstar on the New York Yankees, specifically one they didn’t buy, is even more special. Since the beginning of April, there has been one name that has been... Continue reading

DISCLAIMER: This is a rant. I read an article yesterday about Jose Mourinho’s summer transfer window business and was interested in what it said. It talked about the various needs that United must address this offseason and did it well. But then it said “Jose Mourinho is considering adding to... Continue reading

This year’s NBA Draft went off without a hitch, which is great in the grand scheme of things since there’s usually some drama. The big story of the night was whether Lonzo Ball would get drafted by the Lakers, but there was an interesting rumor to go with that that... Continue reading

Going into Thursday’s NBA Draft, it’s been widely assumed that the first two picks are already set in stone. The consensus #1 pick is Markelle Fultz, a big point guard from Washington who’s been compared to the likes of James Harden. While this is high praise for someone who hasn’t... Continue reading

By now, pretty much anybody who reads the news knows that the Golden State Warriors won the NBA Championship only a few days ago. It was a comprehensive victory which saw the Warriors dominate the Cavaliers throughout the series, save for a Game 4 marred by incompetent officiating. That said,... Continue reading

The latest installment in the famed USA-Mexico soccer rivalry happened on June 11th at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, and the game was pretty much everything that was promised.

Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the most scrutinized player on the planet. Not just in soccer, but maybe overall. He obviously has competition in that regard but I feel like Ronaldo gets a lot of unfair treatment, especially considering the achievements he’s attained. After Real Madrid won their first La Liga...

Throughout the history of the NBA, there are images seared into our collective memories, many of them trademark moves of the legends of the league. Among them are Jerry West’s drive (forever immortalized in the league’s logo), Kareem’s skyhook, George Gervin’s finger roll, and Jordan’s fadeaway…better known as “The Unstoppable...
