Would you partake in a yoga class on surfboards?
Obviously I realize that those are giant paddle boards pictured, and if you know what you're doing the chances of falling off of one are pretty slim.  Still, this just seems like a bad idea.  Yoga is supposed to be relaxing, right?  Attempting to balance on...

Ode to Kevin Garnett compilation blog
I didn't start seriously writing about the NBA until 2012, so everything I have on Kevin Garnett is from well past his prime--that doesn't mean there weren't still plenty of great moments though.  In mostly chronological order, here's my own personal KG hig...

Non-hockey fan's guide to the seemingly bizarre World Cup of Hockey
What, you don't recognize the "North America" logo? Hockey isn't a sport that interests me very much.  But ESPN does its best to promote what it's televising, so the 2016 World Cup of Hockey is on my radar.  Admittedly, I was very confused to see that Canad...

Porcellometer rises, Cy Young Award is his to lose
Rick Porcello went the distance last night for his 21st victory of the season, and he only needed 89 pitches (65 for strikes) to do it--the fewest thrown by any MLB pitcher this year in a nine-inning complete game.  Porcello didn't walk a batter and he had ...

Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Sweat (a La La La La Long)" by Inner Circle
Before I even figured that I had an affinity for reggae music , I was a big fan of 1993's  Bad Boys album by Inner Circle.  The song Bad Boys , made super famous by the TV show Cops, was actually one of my least favorite tracks on the disc.  I bought the CD...

Leadoff home runs rarely make you cry
I don't even know how the Marlins took the field last night a day after the tragic death of Jose Fernandez, but they did.  Dee Gordon, who's been playing Major League Baseball since 2011, stepped into the batters' box leading off the first inning for Miami ...

Awesome Strikeout Records of the Week: 1986 Roger Clemens, and the Red Sox on Sunday
On April 29, 1986, Roger Clemens struck out 20 Seattle Mariners, the most ever in a nine-inning game (a record tied by Clemens again in 1996, by Kerry Wood in 1998, and by Max Scherzer this year): Sunday, Eduardo Rodriguez (13), Heath Hembree (5), Matt Barn...

How I Met Your Mother's subtle 50-1 countdown to Marshall's Dad's death
I first noticed this phenomenon the other night while watching a rerun of the How I Met Your Mother episode in which Marshall's father dies (Season 6, No. 13). I'd seen it at least twice before and failed to pick up on what was going on, and even this time ...

Do you know about Turkish ice cream vendors as magicians/comedic theatrical performers?
I came across this tweet the other day: Deep down my dad is pissed lol pic.twitter.com/tQvw4GKexv — Mahmood A (@yung_mood) September 19, 2016 It prompted me to do a little YouTube research, and apparently these ice-cream-serving entertainers are commonplace...

Silver linings to the Jimmy Garoppolo injury
Having your quarterback get hurt is one of the worst things that can happen to an NFL team, but in the case of Jimmy Garoppolo, the timing of his injury isn't really all that bad for the Patriots. First, there's the obvious: Arguably the greatest QB of all ...

We're just over a month away from the 30-year anniversary of the most horrific sports moment of my childhood: It's also been nearly 12 years since the baseball world changed forever , allowing Bill Buckner and the rest of the 1986 Red Sox to live in peace. ...
