The clueless soccer fan’s guide to watching the World Cup

Posted June 8, 2006 by RJ Warner

Remember comedian Jay Mohr’s talk show on ESPN back in 2002? Of course you don’t. It lasted only 16 seconds, but that was long enough for him to get in the one line that pretty much captured how the good ol’ U.S of A. has felt about the rest of the world’s favorite quadrennial sporting [...]

Support the Draft

Posted February 19, 2006 by RJ Warner

Well, looks like the Powerball didn’t pan out for us again.  Dog it, anyway. Maybe next time.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t have 146 million years to wait for the jackpot, so I’ll take the next sure bet: winning at fantasy baseball.   I get a warm and fuzzy feeling this time [...]

Confessions of an Atlanta Braves hater

Posted April 15, 2006 by RJ Warner

Who’s sick of the Atlanta Braves? If I asked ten people, I bet nine would raise their hands. I was always sick of them. More than any Mets fan, Phillies fan or any NL East wanna be du-jour. They have been clogging up baseball’s postseason since 1991, with only one championship to show for, in [...]

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 [...]

RJ’s Junk Drawer

Posted February 28, 2006 by RJ Warner

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 [...]

Pardon My Short Attention Span

Posted February 17, 2006 by RJ Warner

What do sports writers and lazy journalism majors do when they have a deadline and no real story to turn in? Well, first they go to the bar. Then they fall back on the old standby: The “notes” column, or as some of our more clever ilk might call it, “Random Thoughts From a Random [...]

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 [...]
