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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Have a Neat Summer!

Posted June 30, 2006 by RJ Warner

Remember your high school yearbook? Me neither, but I do remember signing them for friends (stay cool, dude!), non-friends (trying to cleverly mix the word “fart” in there somewhere) and wish-they-were-girlfriends (my phone number) like I was some sought-after athlete whose scrawl would be cherished for generations, if not days. Mine of course, would get [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
