Comment on Winter Olympics: Once Is Enough by David

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 03:12:10 +0000

Respectfully but completely disagree with you on this one, Paul. I loved covering the Winter Games. Being a hockey guy certainly had something to do with that (though that sport's appeal this time around is badly damaged by the absence of NHL players), but I found so many of the other sports really compelling once I was exposed to them. I'm disappointed I only got to go to two.



Comment on Bad Basketball: NBA’s Dog Days by Ben Bolch

I've been saying this for years: Shorten the preseason to two games and the regular season to 60 games. Anything else is hurting the product and causing players' bodies to break down.

Apparently Firestone did make tricycle tires. Here is an E-Bay listing for vintage tricycle tires. Who knew? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-FIRESTONE-Solid-Hard-Rubber-Tire-NOS-Tricycle-Wagon-8-00-x-1-75-NICE-/112766484445



Comment on Demetrius Walker and Unrealistic Expectations by Nicole

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 21:15:28 +0000

I am SO glad that I had the opportunity to read this story and truly safeguard my son. He is 16 and stands at 6 ft 8 inches and is still growing. He plays for an EYBL team and he is highly sought. Having said all that - he has been TOTALLY protected by his program and myself. He is at an amazingly challenging private high school with a 100% college bound rate. We have not accepted so much as an article of clothing and we will not. He will no doubt be a D1 recruit - but should injury occur - he will have his spectacular education and network to fall back on. You see - our message in our home is that school comes first. He is blessed as an athlete and has been dunking since the 7th grade. He is an offensive and defensive threat (not many can say that). But you WILL NOT see a Sports Illustrated or even a local newspaper write about this - because he is a 9th grader and has 2 more years of education to focus before worrying about where to go to college. ONE STEP AT A TIME. Good things come to those who wait. I wish MORE parents that are in this grassroots chaos would understand this. Maybe then we won't be hearing of the Demitrius Walkers and Cotton Sheas of the world.



Comment on PST: The Perfect Time for Watching Sports by David

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 03:01:05 +0000

Heck, the adjustment to Central Time has been bad enough. (After weather, not having PST start times may be the biggest everyday drawback to my relocation.) I can't even imagine trying to follow sports another seven hours to the east.



Comment on Donovan, Dempsey: Deadlocked at 57 Forever? by Doug

Landon received a rapturous welcome at his new club. He told a San Diego radio station that he and his family are up for the challenge, but that it will probably be a month before he is fully fit. Sure hope it works out for him. https://www.mighty1090.com/episode/landon-donovan-scene-last-night-unlike-anything-ive-ever-seen-life/



Comment on Failed Throw-ins and Other Soccer Stupidity by Steve Potter

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 11:34:24 +0000

Hi Paul - this has been my pet hate for so long now and I'm glad someone has picked up on it. My club, Southampton I'm afraid, not only throw the ball away at throw-in's but also show so few players to receive the ball it's only going to go to one player who's usually marked and promptly loses the ball in the ensuing tackle/challenge!!! I just can't understand why the coaches, who are so hot on keeping possession elsewhere on the pitch, haven't realised they are giving possession away so frequently when their team are being given a free throw after the opposition have given it away - very frustrated!!!



Comment on NBA Players and the ‘Secret’ Playground Draft by David

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 18:21:45 +0000

Easy solution: A bonus, or some kind of prize, for the guy picked last. Suddenly, it wouldn't seem so bad.

This brings to mind the great Quebec maple syrup heist of 2012. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/20/business/arrests-made-in-maple-syrup-theft-from-quebec-warehouse.html
