  • Green: ASU is no sure thing to be dancing

    With Selection Sunday roughly three weeks away, the talk around town is about how the ASU Sun Devils will find their way into the dance, while the University of Arizona Wildcats will be staying home for the first time since 1984. Well, I have some news for you: The Sun Devils are no sure thing. […]
  • Burns: Closing the book on an era

    I remember the day like it was yesterday. June 2, 2005. The 620 Sportsline was live, on-location from some high-end pizza place in North Scottsdale. It was the night after the Spurs eliminated the Phoenix Suns from the NBA’s Western Conference Finals and I couldn’t have been in a better mood. Whatever disappointment I had […]
  • Green: The business of sports

    We are often reminded that professional sports are a business. Everyone involved wants to make as much money as they can, and that is generally how things go. But, while most people are not afraid to bash players when they ask for more money or make decisions based solely on finances, few seem to look […]
  • Burns: Aiming for Frasier

    As far as finales go, I’m pretty sure where Tuesday night’s last ever 620 Sportsline ranks. It wasn’t sad and sappy like MASH. This wasn’t Hawkeye Pierce flying away in a helicopter while BJ Honnicutt drives away on the motorcycle with the words GOODBYE spelled out with rocks. It wasn’t confusing like The Soprano’s. I […]
  • Green: Let’s jump on the bandwagon

    People like to say the fans in Arizona will only follow a team if they win games. While that appears to be the case, especially with the Cardinals, the best team in the state remains very much under the radar. At 34-18-5 with 73 points, the Phoenix Coyotes are currently second in the Pacific Division […]
  • Burns: Couldn’t have done it without him

    Take all the success the Cardinals have had over the last couple of years. The Super Bowl, the division titles, the newfound national respect. Now imagine it as a giant pie (apple of course). How big is Kurt Warner’s slice? How much of it was he directly and personally responsible for? The knee jerk reaction […]
  • Green: Time for Amare to go

    For the last couple weeks I planned on writing a blog about how the Suns should not trade Amare Stoudemire, but instead should re-sign him. The way I saw it, he was not as bad a player as people made him out to be, and there is no way the Suns would get equal talent […]
  • Burns: Not what Leinart said but how he said it

    Do you believe in body language? In the idea that it’s not what you say, but how you say it? In the subtle hints and clues that you can pluck from tone, posture, pauses, inflection and the like? I do. Big time. Maybe I’m an old fashioned radio geek, but, part of my job is […]
  • Burns: Warner’s future starts important offseason

    The only battle left to win is the one inside the heart, mind and soul of #13. The Cardinals glorious (more on that in a moment) 2009 season came to a splintering halt Saturday in New Orleans. You can ruminate on the injuries and the collective empty gas tank to your heart’s desire; when you […]
  • Saints are vulnerable, Cards pull one out

    This is not another attempt to bash the credibility of Cris Collinsworth. Cardinals fans took the belt to the NBC announcer so many times last year that the poor guy can barely go on talk radio in Phoenix without a mandatory upfront apology. With his the-Cardinals-are-the-worst-team-to-make-the-playoffs speech, Collinsworth (who is actually one of my favorite […]
  • Green: Irony can be a funny thing

    Irony can be a funny thing. All season I kept telling friends and family that the two teams I wanted to see play each other were the Cardinals and the Saints. I saw an electric Saints offense led by a great, cerebral and accurate QB that I felt could only be matched by the Cardinals’ […]
  • Burns: So much love and hate and then love again

    To borrow a line from Cards play-by-play man Dave Pasch, the Cards 51-45 playoff win over the Packers was……. Epic. By the third quarter the game had the same feel as the Cardinals NFC Championship victory last year over the Eagles. By the time much-maligned defensive back Michael Adams forced a fumble by Aaron Rodgers […]
  • Green: A thumbs up for Suns fans

    Suns fans have gotten a bad rap lately. It was just a few weeks ago where Steve Nash seemed to call them out of after a game, saying their lack of energy contributed to the Suns’ problems on the court. Known as everything from fair-weather to lackadaisical, they tend to be reserved bunch, only standing […]
  • Green: Here we go

    It was roughly one year ago where the Cardinals, fresh off an inconsistent 9-7 season, were getting ready to face the upstart Atlanta Falcons in a first round playoff game. Going into the team’s first home playoff game since moving to Arizona, I had supreme confidence that the Cardinals would protect their home field and […]
  • Green: I welcome the scan

    As someone who will be leaving the country for a vacation in less than two weeks, recent events have certainly piqued my interest. I am going to be going to Africa and, on the way there, I will have a stop and layover in Amsterdam. That Schiphol Airport that is in the news? I will […]
