With great fanfare, we recently said goodbye to two female media icons, Oprah Winfrey and Meredith Vieira. As they retired from their current roles on television, I wondered if others admired their farewells as much as I did.
I thought the U.S. Open would be a "Tiger-free zone," and then Rory McIlroy happened. His performance was so dominating that all anybody could talk about was Tiger Woods. Can Rory be the new Tiger?
Hotshot minor leaguer Bryce Harper hit a long homer. Instead of hustling out of the batter's box, he stood and admired it. If that wasn't bad enough, as he neared home, he blew a kiss to the opposing pitcher.
We keep falling for it, don't we? As a spate of disillusioned facebook and twitter posts from the past 24 hours spells out, once again plenty of peop...
Can anyone tell me why so many famous and powerful men decide not only to take pictures of their private parts but to text, tweet and email them to people? How many men have to be caught before men actually learn from the guys who have gone before?
Shaquille O'Neal announced his retirement on Twitter. No tears. No fuss. Just a direct message to his fans. Next thing you know, sports commentators will be rendered obsolete.
"I've already heard from people at ESPN who've gotten their hands on excerpts or in one case the whole book, and they were pleased, because they said it was an honest account, warts and all."
Mets owner Fred Wilpon's honest comments about his players are making the sports pages. On David Wright: "A really good kid. A very good player. Not a superstar."

Many have doubted whether Tiger will ever surpass Jack Nicklaus' record of winning 18 majors. And with his ever-increasing physical woes, Tiger has to be questioning that as well.
Tiger Woods limped off the golf course yesterday after shooting an ugly six-over-par 42 through nine holes. So the future of the PGA Tour is more of the same. No Tiger.
Back in 2006 we all knew Tiger Woods was eventually going to race past Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major championships and set a new standard which would likely never be broken. It was a fact of life. Fast forward to 2011, and it is looking like a long-shot at best.
The Seattle Mariners have dumped Milton Bradley. Not a surprise. Despite being paid $12 million this season, he's batting .218. Which team will now hire him and proclaim, "He's a changed man"?
I was assigned to do a story on a man with terminal heart disease who as a dying wish, had requested to walk the hallowed grounds at Augusta National.
Thank you VCU Rams. We had no idea you even existed in February, yet you'll still be standing in April. Now that's sports!
