Sports Bio

I grew up in Indiana. Consequently, I have three loves: IU basketball, ND football, and open-wheel auto racing. The most memorable sporting event I've attended is any Indy 500. I know it's not the sporting event it once was, but I defy any critic to attend the race and not be impressed. It's absolutely spectacular.

Recent Comments

Chelsea kicked in the Ballacks.

Frank Lampard is heading to Barcelona. That's why Chelsea is chasing Ballacks.

16 year old Adu to Chelsea?

I've read that Rossi wants to play for the Italian national team (although born in the US, he also holds an Italian passport).

16 year old Adu to Chelsea?

Chelsea will sign him and then ship him off "on loan" to a second tier premiership or championship side for a few years. If he starts a single game for Chelsea before he turns 20 I'd be shocked. Peter Kenyon wants to crack the US market and what better way than to sign the best young US player. The argument could be made, though, that the best young US player is Rossi at ManU. Too bad Rossi wants nothing to do with the US national team.

Bode Miller is at it again

No, grum, my sentence does not apply to both Bonds and Armstrong. Bonds admitted to taking steroids, but unknowingly...remember the steroid cream comments? Armstrong has never admitted, or otherwise been busted, for performance enhancing drugs.

Bode Miller is at it again

"He should have quit before the last one, then he would have had more credibility." Sorry, ChasHocq, I don't buy that. Considering the French press in hammering Armstrong for allegedly failing a test in 1999, whether he won one tour or a dozen, they'd still be after him. Yes, there's a lot of smoke around Armstrong, and some of his associations are suspect, but in the end the guy has passed every test thrown at him. If Bode Miller wants to pass judgment on another athlete he should at least have the stones to provide the basis for his opinion.

Bode Miller is at it again

For someone who has expressed disdain for media attention, Bode Miller seems to keep finding ways to make certain all cameras are on him. Considering that his current form doesn't foretell a very successful Olympics, perhaps he should keep his trap shut.

Man U and Arsenal managers give up on title.

A "derby" is a match between local teams, a grudge match of sorts. Arsenal and Chelsea play a "London Derby." I've been watching too much EPL...the venacular is slowly inching its way into my everday usage. Also, I don't think Arsenal will catch Tottenham. Arsenal just doesn't have the same spark this year as in years past.

Man U and Arsenal managers give up on title.

It seems the only excitement left in the EPL is who finishes second and whether Arsenal can catch Tottenham for the final Champions League spot. The positive side, though, is that because the EPL has no many local and regional derbys there's always at least two or three high quality matches each game day.
