A Collapse For the Ages

Sunday completed the most spectacular collapse in the history of baseball. The New York Mets blew a 7 game division lead with only 17 games to go to lose the division to the Philadelphia Phillies on the last day of the season. The Mets lost 12 of their final 17 games, while committing 21 errors […]

When a Game is More Than Just a Game

Last night I watched a documentary that I knew would be tough to watch but that I knew I could relate to. It’s an HBO documentary called Nine Innings to Ground Zero and it’s available on “HBO On Demand” for those of you in the US. I’m sure you can order it from Amazon or […]

The Euro Difference

What a difference the Euro has made. I remember when I was living and studying in London and traveling around Europe in the late 90’s and 2000-01, thinking how cheap everything was for Americans. The dollar was strong and the old currencies like the Italian Lira, French Franc, Greek Drachma, Dutch Gilder and Spanish Peseta […]

Barry Bonds Stands Alone

For me, watching 43 year old Barry Bonds majestically hit his 756th career home run 435 feet and break the most cherished record in sports last night was surreal. It made me remember what I love about sports and especially baseball. It made me forget all this other crap about steroids, HGH and other performance […]

Le Tour de “Who Cares”

I have never been a big Tour de France fan. So I am not going to pretend I long for the days of Lance Armstrong and Greg Lemond winning the worlds most prestigious cycling event. I really couldn’t care less. I am a huge sports fan and not just American sports so I feel that […]

Running Of The Bulls 7/13/00

I love Youtube, I just randomly found this. This is the official video of the Running of the Bulls that you can buy in Pamplona, Spain. This was my second day running. You can’t see me easily because I am wearing the traditional white clothes with red sash that everyone else is pretty much wearing. […]

Chaos at Carnoustie

This years British Open Championship took place at Carnoustie, Scotland and was as memorable for its collapses and mishaps than for its excellent and beautiful play. The stage was set for Tiger Woods to claim his third straight Clarett Jug but that wasn’t to be and it came down to two Europeans in Sergio Garcia […]
