Another great afternoon

Posted April 3, 2006 by RJ Warner

Welcome to Opening Day. I know the White Sox and Indians played on Sunday night, but to me that’s the equivalent of the play-in game. Today’s when baseball really starts. The season only gets officially underway when the President throws out the first pitch. It’s not quite that first Thursday-Friday of the NCAA tournament, but [...]

Dude- Did YOU Know the Olympics Were Going On?

Posted February 16, 2006 by RJ Warner

Where have all the East German “women” gone? That’s a question that’s been dogging me as I’ve been trying to watch these “Oplimpiadi Invernali” (Italian for winter olympics) during the first half a fortnight. I mean I’ve really, really been trying to watch. It seems however, that all the sports news media types are more [...]

Thank God it’s Monday, huh? Another week has passed in this never-ending sports merry-go-round. Who wants to get off now? Maybe Gene Upshaw. Not me, though. Not with all the fun stuff coming up. Baseball is about to dive head first into real international competition on this side of the globe after dipping it’s toe [...]

With the sporting world in a virtual holding pattern over the next few weeks while we wait for March Madness and the baseball season (i dunno – April Ardor?) to give us some real sports stuff to talk about (what’s this O-limp-ix thing they’ve been yapping about these past two weeks anyway?) here’s a fresh [...]

Wanna Win Your Bracket? Try a Whole "LOTA" Love

Posted March 14, 2006 by RJ Warner

(Deep breath, wiping sweat from forehead, big smile) IT’S HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE!!!  (More giddy laughing, thinking about dancing, thinking twice). It’s that week, boys, girls and shareholders. The week we’ve all been waiting for, the only marketing slogan we’ve collectively as a nation completely caved into: MARCH MADNESS!  I have a friend from Turkey who didn’t even [...]

Madcap mascots make our games merry

Posted March 29, 2006 by RJ Warner

They’re fun. They’re cute. They’re Criminals (Yuma HS, AZ)! Ah, the life of the sports mascot. Be it high school, college, or the pros, the game just can’t go on without an eight foot tall, oversized, stuffed Banana Slug (UC-Santa Cruz). I want to be a part of the fun, so I’m going to apply [...]

Nash Deserves Second Straight MVP Award

Posted February 19, 2006 by RJ Warner

Last season, it was widely believed that Steve Nash won the NBA’s MVP award almost as much for what he didn’t do.  This year, he’s showing that he deserves it for what he is doing.  Remember the buzz last winter when Phoenix went into the tank for eight games while Nash was out with an [...]

Ask RJ: Inaugural December Edition

Posted December 17, 2008 by RJ Warner

Checking my Sportscolumn article archives, I noticed that it’s been 30 MONTHS since I’ve had an article published. Was it laziness or some subconscious protest to not write something until Michael Vick has received the justice he deserves and rightfully resumes his NFL career with the Oakland Raiders. Since it was just reported today that [...]
