The Prosecution Rests on the Legacy of JoePa

Joe Paterno may the greatest college football coach in history, but not that or 40 years of good deeds can overshadow his new legacy as a pedophile-protector, Inhistoric writes.

A rash to overcompensate judgment

Is LeBron James better than Michael Jordan? Good lord, who cares. I love basketball and I love the NBA. But the breathless attention given to LeBron James' every waking action is mind-numbing. And...

Bad to be 'Bron

I think when Tiger Woods wakes up in the middle of the night, he's reflecting on a lot of things. He looks back at all the poor performances in recent years, all the lost opportunities at majors,...

Perception becomes reality with the NBA

Is the NBA rigged? No. But as long as D-Wade can kick Kevin Garnett in the nuts and manage to draw a foul, conspiracy theories will live on.

Is it wrong to root against greatness?

I keep having to remind myself that I should like the San Antonio Spurs, but I can't do it, even though they personify everything I like about sports. They're a small-market team made good; they...

The Oddity of the Single-Game Home Run Record

The single-game home run record is one of the strangest, coolest records in all of sports. When Josh Hamilton knocked his fourth longball against the Orioles, he tied the single-game record for...

Anatomy of a Comeback

There are some things in sports that you only get to see once: Kobe Bryant's 81-point game, the Stanford band running onto the field, Louis Oosthuizen converting a double eagle. Most things we get...

Odom and the Humanization of Sports

Is a pro athlete ever allowed to fail, or are their salaries too extreme for them to deserve any sympathy? It's a question I asked myself this week after the Mavericks cut ties with Lamar Odom, the...

2012 in Sports: A Year of Surprises

At this point, it's safe to say that 2012 is the year of surprises in sports. Even If nothing else happens in 2012 -- which is a distinct possibility, since the Mayans say we're all go to meet our...

Just how bad are the terrible, terrible Bobcats?

So here's something I found interesting. As the country is hammering away at Rush Limbaugh (and rightly so) for calling a woman a slut, I saw during last Sunday's NBA double-header on ABC an ad for...

Oh, how the dunk contest has fallen

The NBA dunk contest used to feature the best players in the sport, the likes of Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins and Clyde Drexler. Now, we're lucky just to get Paul George and Derrick...

It's Hard To Believe The Super Bowl Used To Suck

We're now a full week removed from Super Bowl XLVI, but before we bury the NFL season, there's one final note that needs to be made, and that's that this generation has been unbelievably lucky when...

Whitney Houston Dies at 48; Sung Maybe the Greatest Anthem Ever

Some people think Marvin Gaye's version of the National Anthem at the All-Star Game in L.A. was the greatest of all time. Some think that title belongs to Jimi Hendrix. There is no wrong answer...

Notes on Super Bowl XLVI

I have to admit, it feels weird writing about Super Bowl XLVI because it feels like I've already done it. Dunno about the rest of you, but I was getting a serious case of deja vu throughout game;...

So it looks like Braun will keep his MVP. Huh.

It's hard to rationalize why Ryan Braun should be allowed to keep the National League MVP trophy. Braun was found to have taken performance-enhancing drugs, an act that he has since denied, but one...

Why It Isn't Wrong To Attack The Recently-Departed JoePa

The media should spend less time celebrating JoePa, and more time finding out how an 85-year-old man could make such an egregious error, Inhistoric writes.

Dwight Howard breaks a tremendously-belated franchise record

The Orlando Magic are a very interesting franchise. They're located in sunny Orlando, Florida, a city that at first glance would appear to be a haven for potential NBA free-agents. And yet they...

LeBron James: The NBA's Sometimes Nonexistent Superstar

Choking happens to athletes all the time, but that doesn't make it an indictment on the player. In 1997, in Game 5 of a semifinals series against the Jazz, an 18-year-old rookie Kobe Bryant shot...
