Sports Bio

Attended school in Chapel Hill for seven years. Was on Franklin Street when the Heels beat Michigan for the 1993 National Championship. I was there for the first Heels' loss in the Dean Dome: Len Bias let up the Heels and the Terps won in OT. At one point, Bias hit a three-pointer, then stole the inbounds pass and dunked it. He scored 5 points in about 2 seconds. He was awesome.

Was an original season ticket holder for the Carolina Panthers. Now I'm in Denver, watching the Rockies, Avs, Nuggets and Broncos.

AFI names its top 10 sports movies

SPOILER ALERT: The AFI describes Rocky thusly: In late November, 1975, Rocky Balboa, a sweet, garrulous, slightly over-the-hill boxer, wins his latest match with more fury than talent.r... Uhh, he didn't win.

Leave the @!$#&^% kids at home.

The only problem with that Bull Durham scene is that Robert Wuhl does nothing to help the guy who needs a live rooster.

The American Revolution continues in London

Most of the best athletes in the US don't play soccer. Can you imagine how good Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Randy Moss, et al, could have been if they had played soccer as kids instead of basketball or football? I'm just sayin'. Heck, take those guys right NOW, let them train with a world class soccer coach for a year, and I bet they could compete for the World Cup.

US goalkeeper Hope Solo talks about World Cup fiasco

Goaltenders ARE different. I can easily imagine Patrick Roy, in a similar situation, saying the same thing. Now, none of that makes any of it right, but I'll cut her more slack than I would a position player. I want my goalie to be an independent cocky bastard ("bitch" in this case?) Goalies are essentially playing an individual sport but just happen to be on a team. And I refuse to recognize the version where Greedo shot first. It's just ridiculous on so many levels.

Sox Will Face Rocks in World Series

Boston fans, how big is playing in the NL for up to three games? Big Papi will be at first and Youkilis will be on the bench. That can't help the Sox.

Yankees Broadcaster Suzyn Waldman Cries on the Air

I know most people don't care about details like this, but if Torre is not back with the Yankees it will not be because he was fired. His contract is up. He is no longer employed by the Yankees. He is a free agent. Steinbrenner just has to decide if he wants to re-sign Torre to another deal or not. And, of course, Torre has to agree to terms.

Hope Solo Kicked Off Team for Consolation Game

I just that if Hope ever has a son she names him "Han." That would be cool.

Tulowitzki CLEARLY Best Choice for NL ROY

Personally, Bernie is one of my least favorite columnists around. He is the worst in Denver, and considering Woody Paige is a Denver columnist that says a lot. He used to be in Chicago, and it was apparently a big deal when the Rocky Mountain News hired him away.

Premier League team previews.

I learned more about the Premiereship than I've ever known after reading the little capsules on all the teams. One question: How do you pronounce the "Villa" in Aston Villa? Are the double LL's hard, like "hello" or more like Seve Ballesteros' last name?

Colts 72 million dollar man

The $72 Million figure is meaningless. The important number is the guaranteed $30 million. That's still a lot of cheese.

NFL folds Europe league, to focus on regular-season games abroad

The NFL Europa (and its predecessors) rose from the ashes of a stateside development league. It was the World League of American Football. Appropriately enough, it was the W-LAF. (That's W-laugh for the non-English as a first language crew, and I applaud you, because I do not have a second language.) I was in Chapel Hill, NC, when the Raleigh-Durham Skyhawks existed for an entire year before moving to Columbus and becoming the Ohio Glory. The Glory, of course, preceded the Columbus Bluejackets or being decorated like a team sponsored by the US Postal Service.
