The beer was waiting for me. It's not uncommon to isolate a single moment, one image or a handful of words as the memory of a major life event. When I got married last summer, the photographer took a picture of my hand restin...

Hey Mate, couldn't find your contact on your site. I wanted to pick your brain about a Features/Essay/Long-Form sports site. Not too many know the space as well as you. Shoot me a note at codyroyle[at]gmail.com if you're open to chatting.

I went ice-fishing with my brother. We bonded, watched sports, and everything was good. And then ... Richard Sherman.

On U.S./Russia relations, gay rights and Olympics bullshit.
Don't be fooled. The U.S. naming openly gay athletes to its delegation isn't about activism.

The system we use to enact justice sometimes has a hard time matching up with our sense of it. On perfect plays, imperfect systems and Jameis Winston.

Sport, at its best, is inclusive. Whether it’s at the participation level or as fans, all are welcome. The moment that’s eliminated or corrupted is the moment sports become not just useless, but actually harmful. It’s been like that in the past, and thankfully we’re evolving away from that. What Bruce suggests isn’t just degrading to women, it diminishes the possibilities for all sports fans.

Lou Reed passing away made me realize I respect his failures more than his successes. We should all drown occasionally.
I just learned that Lou Reed died. I'm sure that over the next few days there are going to be many people expressing what he meant to them. I've never been a fan of heartfelt eulogies. Too often, speeches to remember the dead...

As appealing as Tim Donaghy's conspiracy theory is, you can't believe one and not another if they both have a similar amount of evidence.
The numbers aren't all that bad. The Toronto Raptors had four more personal fouls and only two fewer free throw attempts than the Brooklyn Nets in their 94-87 loss in the first game of their first round playoff series. That's hardly an outrageous difference. However, zero foul calls on the Nets ...

Forgive the self-indulgence. This is kind a story about my journey as a sports writer, and also why sports writing is really fucking terrible.

A Fielder-for-Kinsler deal marks death of amateur analysis.

No one's masculinity is marginalized by condemning horrible actions. It's idiotic to suggest that punishing harassment will lead to the further sissyfication of man.

A sample of sports fans is nothing more than a cross-section of humanity. Some good. Some bad. But mostly grotesque specimens searching for something to belong to that’s bigger than themselves.
