Our first reaction was laughter, though that hardly seems fitting. Hypocrisy is rarely funny. After two years full of questions but absolutely no answers, the NCAA just dropped the figurative hammer on itself. Let's review the facts, or lack thereof.
During my NFL days, my idea of Sunday Fundays -- suiting up to take on an opponent -- was much different than the current take that many Americans have. But now, the concept of Sunday Funday has taken on a whole new meaning.
Whether in his writings, radio show or television program, there's no denying his wits. Mr. Le Batard began his career as a journalist for the Herald in 1990, he has had to cultivate his intelligence in a profession demanding a craftsman like dedication to one's inner voice.
We've only been talking for three minutes but it becomes crystal clear to me that Air Force Staff Sergeant Jason Alberti is a Miami HEAT superfan -- unlike any other I've ever encountered in my 14 seasons working in the NBA.
It is still early in the grueling endurance race that is the NBA season, but barring serious injury, Lebron James is, and should be acknowledged as, the league's most valuable player for 2012-2013.
For all the scrutiny LeBron endured for his decision to "take his talents to South Beach," it was actually the right decision. Especially for startups, having the right core team is everything. Join forces with people you like being around and have different strengths than you.
The Miami Heat hosted a Jewish heritage night at the basketball team's Dec. 12 game at American Airlines Arena, with tens of thousands in attendance. How odd, I thought, to celebrate Hanukkah in a sports arena, given that the concept of sports is emblematic of Greek culture.
You should be a role model for what good health and regular exercise can do. But instead, you're doing the opposite by representing Coca-Cola and McDonald's.
One would assume that 31 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists, and 3 steals while shooting 60 percent from behind the arc and 55 percent from the floor could seal the deal for the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat.
Maybe it was their dominating Finals win over the Oklahoma City Thunder last June. Maybe it was the offseason addition of Ray Allen. Whatever the reason, the vitriol normally reserved for third world dictators that has engulfed the Miami Heat over the past two years seems to be evaporating.
We are just over a month into the regular season and Ray Allen already has three game-winning shots and looks as fresh as ever.
If the shoe fits, get LeBron James to buy it for you. That's what I wanted to do recently when I went to the Nike Factory Store in Riverhead, N.Y., to purchase a pair of sneakers.
AÚN SIN el SS José Reyes, y sin el IF Emilio Bonifacio and Co. los Marlins no pueden llegar en 2013 más abajo que donde terminaron este año, ya que fueron últimos en la División. Entonces, ¿por qué habrían de retener a ese quinteto, si mandándolos a Toronto, economizarán 180 millones de dólares en el futuro?...
This cannot be repeated often enough. The public should never, ever pay for a stadium or arena for a pro sports team again.
The Toronto Blue Jays pulled off a historic 12-player deal with the Florida Marlins. As last evening wore on, the hype and hoopla on Sports Talk Radio in The Big Smoke was ratcheted. Ah, but Toronto being Toronto, all that giddiness, all that love, all that manic mirth was short-lived. By the time I turned on Sports Talk Radio this morning at 6 a.m., confidence in the trade had turned to caution.
No texting and driving, even in NASCAR. Electronic devices are now forbidden in cars. Texting was going on during stoppages.
