I did send in my ballot yesterday. I think voting is important, and it is even more important to protect the right to vote, but I've become increasingly uncomfortable with the cult around it. My feelings about President Trump have not improved since the ele...

To expand on below
To make this more personal, if we assume Kavanaugh is a rapist based on the evidence at hand, this is the message, I as a man, will receive: How you behave doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what you've accomplished or how you've treated women. If one woman ...

Welcome the Innovation?
Since the Rockets have now been eliminated, I'll go ahead and publish this month-old post.... With my 76ers suffering perhaps the worst loss of my history of sports fandom (some of those Eagles NFC championships and the 1993 World Series may come close), I'...

One more thing about UVA
Mark Titus posted this after Syracuse upset my championship pick, Michigan State: Playing very slow, playing great D, and sucking on offense has taken two double-digit seed Syracuse teams on improbable NCAA tournament runs in the last 3 years. But remember:...

Tentative theory on why a team like UVA was the first to lose to a 16 seed.
