In the Barclays Premier League, the  long season of England’s top football (soccer) league is winding down. The campaign that began last August and has been waged through the cold winter months has only three games left for league-leading Liverpool Football Club.

A story appeared in Golf Digest some time ago in which the greatest golf courses in America were ranked. Number one? Augusta National in Georgia, where once again last weekend the greatest golfers in the world gathered for one of golf’s great spectacles: The Masters. Both Augusta National and the Masters were the dream of . . .

Here in the early days of this 2014 Major League Baseball season, some things are already in tune with what has become commonplace—Mike Trout of the Angels making brilliant plays, Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers hitting long balls, and Andrew McCutcheon of the Pirates being the key to almost everything good at PNC Park in . . .

For the top MLB players, there is a dream. A dream that has little to do with massive contracts or personal honors. Those things are okay, but that is the journey. In their minds, the destination at the end of that journey is Cooperstown.

I know, I know… it’s still March, and for many sports fans, it’s still all about March Madness. For all you basketball fans, that’s fine, but yesterday and today mark the real start of the new baseball season—and I am far more interested in that! After the long, dark, cold winter, the cry of . . .

In its traditional spot on the PGA Tour calendar following the Masters, the RBC Heritage Classic this past weekend was a joy to watch for me—not just because I enjoy great golf, but because it was being played out on what is now, for me, familiar ground. Last fall, one of my brothers made it . . .

Amidst the beauty and grandeur of Augusta, the Masters was, as always compelling television for me. How a course so beautiful with essentially no rough whatsoever can produce so many different challenges for the greatest golfers in the world is amazing all by itself.

o, here it is. At last. After thousands of hours of regular season games, hundreds of hours of tournament games, and uncountable hours of anxious anticipation, the moment of the tip-off for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game is at hand.

In baseball, they are called “innings eaters.” Pitchers who go deep into games and consume 200 or more innings in a year. They often do not have the best stuff, the lowest ERA, or the most strikeouts. They usually don’t have the largest number of wins. But what they do have is consistency.

Few sports teams around the world can boast the history, tradition, and fan base of the Liverpool Football Club in England’s Barclays Premier League, with 18 league titles, 5 European cup titles, and 18 other cup championships. Unfortunately, most of this storied history is mired in the past . . .
