  • What is the definition of a true fan?

    What is the definition of a true fan? Unbelievably loyal? Die-Hard? Band-Wagon? Watch every game on TV or listen on the radio? Just a sucker? The Diamondbacks had their largest weekend of the season this last weekend in terms of attendance. Almost 99,000 fans came to see the Dbacks and White Sox. The next highest […]
  • LeBron’s legacy hangs in the balance

    I realize we would all take LeBron’s paycheck if it meant we had to deal with his “pressure.” I think it’s insulting to ask people to categorize the pressure James is dealing with versus our military or the firefighters in northeast Arizona. Anyone with a clue understands the point and it’s OK to be left […]
  • We have a series and this is really weird

    GAME 4 Copious Thoughts from the Abstract Raw, Uncut, Unedited NBA FINALS: GAME 4 1 The Mavericks are desperate; look at their faces. Defense is the word; both teams speak it, say it and do it well. Points are at a premium. A three is power, Rick Carlisle gets T’d up; he has a case; […]
  • Do the D-backs know or believe?

    Recently, I had the pleasure of telling graduating students they will discover in life that what they know is no match for what they believe. One can know, understand and comprehend all things but it means nothing unless it is put into action. If one’s knowledge, understanding and comprehension does not shape them as a […]
  • College football is broken

    Indianapolis, we have a problem. No, I’m not in favor of moving NASA. College football is broken. The people that are the cause of the problem are also the ones in charge of fixing the problem…thus the problem. Is John Junker the only bowl President to host massive parties of self-indulgence? Is Jim Tressel the […]
  • The time is now for Bud Selig, baseball

    You can copy Nike and say, “Just Do It.” Steal from the Larry “The Cable Guy,” “Git er done.” It’s never wrong to quote from Caddyshack, “Let’s go while we’re young.” Baseball needs to strike a deal with the players association in the next 40 days. It is a rare opportunity when MLB gets to […]
  • NFL Fans: Change the way you think

    Rule changes were unanimously approved by the NFL on Tuesday. As expected the biggest rule changes involve player safety. The biggest change of all has nothing to do with rules. The biggest change of all includes a fundamental shift in the way the game is played. The NFL has issued their latest edict. The following […]
  • I’m happy for my friend Rick Welts

    There is nothing more subjective than lists. Who’s the greatest player of all-time (Babe Ruth, Jim Brown, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky)? Who’s the greatest Super Hero of all-time (Batman)? The real tough one: who is the greatest American of all-time? It’s too difficult to say “any man or woman who died protecting our freedom” is […]
  • Tiger Van Gogh, how will it end?

    Vincent Van Gogh is my favorite painter. The things he painted, the amount of paint he used, the vibrant colors and the strokes of rage project an emotion and passion few can understand but many have tried to duplicate. His paintings have shaped and influenced the world of art for over a century. He is […]
  • Why not send Nash to the Thunder?

    The Thunder need Steve Nash even more than the Suns do. Yes, I know that statement seems unreal. We’ve seen for years what it does to the Suns when Nash just sits on the bench. The idea of not having Steve Nash at all is even more disturbing. Before we get to the Suns, let’s […]
  • Rajon Rondo has my respect

    Rajon Rondo has my respect. Playing in game three after suffering a dislocated elbow was beyond the call of duty. He played the entire fourth-quarter with a throbbing elbow when most would have called it a night. It was Mr. Rondo’s call after all: it was his decision to return to action in Boston’s game […]
  • LeBron James is not Michael Jordan

    LeBron James is not Michael Jordan. Without coming right out and saying it, King James will tell you this. If you watch what he does and listen to what he says and read between the lines, the differences are considerable. No matter how many rings Mr. James wins he should never be compared to Michael. […]
  • Cardinals’ 2011 NFL draft grades

    It happens every year. The NFL draft takes place. Experts give grades. If the NFL team likes the grades, they promote their good grades through their media relations arm. If they don’t, they rip the grades saying it takes 3 years to evaluate a draft. If the player fails, the team says the draft is […]
  • Cardinals need a home run in Round 2

    Why should I stop dreaming? Hit a home run in Round 2. You’d be worried about my family life if you knew how much college football I watch. Despite traveling with ASU, I use two DVR’s and a VCR to record almost every nationally televised college football game so I can watch it when I […]
  • A wonderful day to be a Cardinals fan

    This was a great pick by the Arizona Cardinals. Patrick Peterson, CB out of LSU, was the surest thing in this draft. He was rated the number player overall on many draft boards. Picking him at number 5 gives the Cardinals instant value in the first-round. Peterson will do four primary things for Big Red: […]
