First thing first, I’d like to apologize to the Texas Rangers and all Rangers fans on behalf of my wife for the loss to the San Diego Padres on Sunday, April 11.
Our motto this spring is “better late than never” for the “dyed in the wool” fishermen. We are beginning to see a “Glimmer” of light at the end of the tunnel as the ol’ “barn-door” white perch are beginning to “timidly” feel their way around in the shallow water. This is the latest I have ev…
Before I jump in, I’d like to add a somewhat unrelated note: I really think MLB.TV needs to lift its blackout rule for local games. It should have been done last year since fans weren’t able to attend games. I think that would at the very least, add to its viewership.
When I heard my phone buzzing Friday afternoon, it might as well been the sound of millions of brackets being thrown out because it was buzzing with the news that No. 15 Oral Roberts University had just knocked off No. 2 Ohio State.
Depending on when you’re reading this, it may or may not be too late to fill out your brackets online. Coverage begins at 11 a.m. with No. 10 Virginia Tech taking on No. 7 Florida at 11:15. In order to play it safe, let’s just assume the brackets have to be complete by 11.
Today is a big day and it has nothing to do with the fact it’s the day when we turn our clocks forward (or should I say, most of our clocks turn themselves forward?).
I must admit, I’m kind of like a kid on Christmas Eve right about now. I know I can’t enjoy the present that is to come tomorrow – the Super Bowl, so instead of shaking my big present under the tree, I’m listening to and reading interviews, watching highlights of past Super Bowls and getting…
Today is one of the busiest days of the year for sportswriters but it’s also one of my favorite days of the year. It’s a day of celebrating young athletes who have worked their tails off for a chance to continue their athletic careers at the next level.
Well, we can’t say Tom Brady is a system quarterback who only had his success under Bill Belichick. I’m not a fan of Brady but it’s hard to argue against him being the greatest quarterback in NFL history. He’s now the third quarterback to take two teams to the Super Bowl (Payton Manning, Kur…
As we approached the end of 2020, most of us were way more than happy to start 2021. We often look at a new year as a new fresh start, a second chance, and because 2020 was the year that it was, many of us were more anxious than ever for January 1.
Today, Dec. 25 is by far the most anticipated day of the year as families and friends gather to make lifelong memories. This probably won’t come as a shock to those who know me and the seven people who read my column but some of my fondest Christmas Day memories are sports-related.
Every year about this time, Christmas decorations start popping up in people’s yards and homes and Christmas movies start popping up all around us, and it’s OK to get into the Christmas spirit and all but let’s not look past today’s holiday.
It’s usually in November when my inbox gets flooded with emails reminding me to vote, but truthfully those emails are doing no good whatsoever because I’ve already made up my mind – I’m not voting.
I didn’t want to hire George Whitley five years ago. I sat across the table from him during the interview, looked him straight in the eyes and told him I didn’t think he could do the job.
While driving around town and past the movie theater the other day, a random thought hit me: Now that sports are back, why don’t the movie theaters show live sporting events?
Jerry Jones has a long track record of bringing in disgruntled and troubled players and trying (“trying” is the key word) to rehabilitate them.
I have a habit of starting to read books and never finishing them. It’s easy to use time and a busy schedule as an excuse, but this summer I decided to finally finish reading a book that I had picked up many times but had never finished it – “Twelve Mighty Orphans” by Jim Dent.
I get asked quite often whether or not I think there will be a football season and as we get closer to Aug. 28, I believe we will have at least a portion of a season.
This year’s NFL season is going to have a different feel to it with so many quarterbacks having new homes, and some of them were with their former teams for what seemed like forever.
Sports have always been a part of my life and, with the exception of basketball, I don’t remember first getting interested.
Before I get into the fishing business at hand, I want to congratulate a very special person, regional publisher Mr. Jerry Pye with our own Marshall News Messenger, for his years of service that has led to his retirement.
It’s been a strange start to the baseball season and questions have risen as to whether or not we’ll even get through the 60 games as scheduled, but more on that in a little bit.
A question I’ve been asked a lot lately is whether or not I think there will be a football season this year. I usually tell them I think we’ll have football in some sort of form or fashion, but what that will look like, I have no idea.
