Use of Taser More than Necessary on Phillies Fan

Posted May 4, 2010 by bsd987

I’m confused. Downright confused. In fact, there is not an adjective that I’m familiar with that can sufficiently explain how confused I am. So to understand just how confused I am, let’s examine what I am not confused about

Posted February 4, 2010 by bsd987

NHL Should Have Punished Penguins, FSN Pittsburgh

Posted January 17, 2010 by bsd987

The National Hockey League messed up, and if vulgarity weren’t frowned upon in journalism, I would not have used the word “messed.” If the NHL cared about its credibility, not to mention if it wanted to gain a little public exposure that it desperately needs, the league would have come out quickly and harshly against [...]

Florida State Fired Bobby Bowden: He Was Graceful Enough to Accept

Posted November 30, 2009 by bsd987

Let’s cut out all the wish-wash and euphemisms and get straight to the point. Florida State fired Bobby Bowden Monday morning, sacked him, canned him, showed him the door. Pick your phrase. But please don’t say Bobby Bowden retired.

Price Mike Locksley Paid Too Small for His Crime

Posted October 26, 2009 by bsd987

I would have written this a few weeks ago if I anticipated its outcome correctly. Obviously, I did not. I thought the University of New Mexico was suspending head coach Mike Locksley as a pretense to fully relieving him of his duties, the standard “We’re suspending you without pay until our lawyers tell us how [...]

The Lost Art of Competent Coaching

Posted October 12, 2009 by bsd987

This article is not going to be like anything I’ve ever written before because, quite simply, I’m jealous. And it shows. Because I’m smarter than almost every head football coach, at least in terms of something as simple as clock management. And while I’m watching people with bigger contracts than the economy of Tuvalu make [...]

Memphis, not Calipari, will be villified longer

Posted August 21, 2009 by bsd987

Nice try, Gary Parrish. Very nice try. But if I were to say you were wrong, it would very well diminish the meaning of “wrong” for future generations, and I don’t feel comfortable doing that. You are past wrong, beyond wrong if you will. You are located somewhere between fool and foolish, probably closer to [...]

I’m writing about Brett Favre because I want to?

Posted August 18, 2009 by bsd987

I promised myself last summer that I was not going to write about Brett Favre. I did. It’s not that I thought I’d want to write about Brett Favre. The only other time I even sort-of wrote about him wasn’t really about him; it was about ESPN’s media stalk-gala into his every inaction after he [...]
