Surprised Why Athletes Do Stupid Things?

On your current sporting calendar, you won’t see a championship event in any of the big three (sorry, Hockey, but you’ve got to earn your spot back).

As the pages of the calendar year turn and we build toward the preclusion to the World Series, the kickoff of the world’s greatest game, the basketball World Championship and Tiger’s world domination, I want to talk about reasons.
