Seahawks Release Richard Sherman

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 14:23:10 -0500

The Seattle Seahawks would rather have $11 million in salary cap space than another season of Richard Sherman. The four-time Pro Bowler missed the last seven games of the season with a ruptured Achilles and is about to turn 30. His release and the trade of defensive lineman Michael Bennett push the Legion of Boom further into history. Sherman has more interceptions and passes defended than anyone else since he entered the NFL as a fifth-rounder in 2011.(image)

Roger Bannister has Passed Away

Sun, 04 Mar 2018 16:05:22 -0500

Roger Bannister, the first man to run a mile in less than 4 minutes has died. The feat was accomplished in 1954. We had a small black and white TV, and film of it was shown on the sports news. I also remember seeing it in the newsreels at the movies. It was a really big deal then, but now even high school kids are running under 4 minutes(image)

U.S. May Lose Out on Bid to Co-Host World Cup

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 09:51:27 -0500

Three months before the vote, the 2026 World Cup has a front runner and it isn't the North American combined bid by the U.S., Mexico and Canada. It's Morocco. Sam Borden of ESPN suggest the problem may be the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania. He asks, "At this particular moment in time, does the world want to give something nice to the United States?"(image)

LeBron James: NCAA is Corrupt

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 18:21:47 -0500

"I do know what five-star athletes bring to a campus, both in basketball and football. I know how much these college coaches get paid. I know how much these colleges are gaining off these kids. [......] Me and my mom was poor, I'll tell you that, and they expected me to step foot on a college campus and not to go to the NBA? We weren't going to be poor for long, I'll tell you that. That's a fact."(image)

Jerry Jones is Not as Powerful as He Thought

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 16:50:20 -0500

In another sign of how badly Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lost his war with Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner is about to drop a multi-million fine on Jones. Goodell has the power to do this for conduct he considers detrimental to the league, such as threatening to sue the compensation committee of owners deciding Goodell's contract renewal.(image)

The 2018 Winter Olympics are over and Norway won

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 11:25:20 -0500

With a record-setting 39 medals (14 gold), Norway surely overachieved at these games. USA were the main gifters, I'd say, finishing fourth with 23 (9 gold). Esther Ledecka (Czeck Republic) was my favorite medalist at these Games, the first two win gold in two different sports at the same Olympiad, winning in both snowboarding and skiing. Tokyo is just over two years away, hey hey!(image)

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 11:20:07 -0500

Some MLB executives have discussed letting the losing team have any three batters it chooses in the ninth inning, according to Rich Eisen. One said, "Best argument is that no other sport has the best players sitting on the bench in the final minutes of a game."(image)
