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 [...]

NHL Olympic Break Report

Posted February 14, 2006 by RJ Warner

The New NHL: in like a lion (shootouts, more scoring), out like a whimpering, kicked little puppy dog (the ready-to-explode gambling scandal). While Wayne Gretzky is busy wiping the sweat from his brow, let’s review the “first half” of the NHL season up to the Olympic break. First, the Eastern Conference (hey, we got a [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
