Oops
Today's post was going to be about the media frenzy surrounding the whole "LeBron hasn't told us where he's going" thing. It was very clever and you would have enjoyed it immensely, had King James not completely screwed us by making up his mind.  Which, of ...

Justice, Soccer Style
Does anyone else think the best possible punishment for the Colombian player who hacksawed Neymar's back in yesterday's game would be to lock him in a room with Luis Suarez, one knife, and one fork? Or is that just me.

Baseball Second Half Predictions
While we haven't quite reached the All Star Game, we have hit the midway point on the baseball season in terms of games played. It's the time of year when contenders separate themselves - slightly - from the rest of the pack, when teams decide whether to tr...

And We're Out
You don't win at the World Cup by being 31st out of 32 teams in time of possession. You don't win by getting outshot by roughly 20. You don't win by being unable to keep the bal out of your end, and you don't win by scoring 5 goals in 4 games. Even when you...

Takeaways: Germany vs Brazil
Here are, in no particular order, the things we learned from Germany's 7-1 shellacking of Brazil in the World Cup semis: In hindsight, we might not have gotten all of the Germans' best effort when they beat us 1-0. Non-USA soccer highlights are much more pa...

The marvelous Minerva Zimmerman was kind enough to interview me as the leadoff hitter for her new series of IM interviews. Read, and thrill to discussions of sasquatches, vultures, and the wisdom of Brian Upton.
So, I had this idea that I'd talk to other writers about writing and post it up our conversations for other people who don't really know what writers talk about amongst ourselves. I'm ultimately ve...

All Star Time
The nice thing about the MLB All Star Game is that despite all the silliness that has been heaped upon it over the years - wacky selection processes and vague intimations of making it "matter" and a home run derby with rules so borked I could design better ...

Time-Is-Moneyball
There is a certain rhythm to a baseball season. It starts off in a mad rush, with small hot streaks by bad teams and unknown players exciting all sorts of cloud cuckoo-land extrapolation. (See: This April's Miami Marlins, and everyone who thought they'd win...

Kidd, No Play
The thing that you have to understand is that Jason Kidd is very, very good at getting things to go his way. He's outmaneuvered multiple coaches, both in college and in the pros (see also: Frank, Lawrence). He fell into a head coaching gig with an owner wil...

My wife and I have nothing but good things to say about Cozy Cat. They have been wonderful in helping us with our elderly cats, they're thorough without recommending things that are unnecessary, and they're always up front about treatment options. The staff are generous, friendly and responsive, and have always treated our cats well. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I've had a long track record of generally good work with this office for various services including gutter cleaning and pressure washing. Recently there was an issue; the location's management was very pleasant to deal with and we resolved the situation amicably.
