RJ’s Junk Drawer

Posted March 6, 2006 by RJ Warner

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 [...]

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 [...]

I Must Break You

Posted February 20, 2006 by RJ Warner

Everyone loves to say that records are made to be broken. So when someone like Cal Ripken comes along and breaks what is believed to be an absolutley, positively, your-so-dumb-if-you-think-anyone-will-ever-touch-it unbreakable record, it should be celebrated and appreciated forever. Or at least until someone breaks that record. So, without sounding like a broken one, let’s [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
