Boston Olympics Bid Was a Bad Idea

Form the day it was announced, Boston's proposed bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics was a debacle of the highest order, and the idea has now been killed. It's hard to balance the excitement of hosting with the impossible tasks associated with doing so. More»

NFL's Brady Decision Is Perplexing

My shock over Roger Goodell and the NFL upholding Tom Brady's four-game suspension has nothing to do with Brady, the Patriots, destroyed cell phones or deflated footballs. Instead it has everything to do with my mom (and people like her). More»

Please, Tom Brady: Don't Go to Court

Not only did Roger Goodell uphold Tom Brady's entire four-game suspension, but it would appear as though the QB allegedly had his assistant to destroy his cell phone to avoid investigators. The cover-up is often worse than the crime. More»

This Week's Greatest Athlete on Earth: Cole Hamels

If this was indeed the end for Cole Hamels in Philadelphia, what a way to go out, throwing his first career no-hitter against the Cubs over the weekend. The feat earned Hamels the title of This Week's Greatest Athlete on Earth. More»

Tulo still the best at his position

The difference between Troy Tulowitzki and the next best at his position is the largest in the game. Even though Tulo has been injured often in recent years, 110 games of him and a backup for the rest is the best any team could do at shortstop. More»

Contemplating the Rockies' next move

The Rockies took a big step forward on Tuesday, finally parting with longtime shortstop and face of the franchise Troy Tulowitzki. Their next step should be trading the main return in that deal, Jose Reyes, for whatever they can get. More»

The Jays and the Risks of Going For It

The Blue Jays made a big move late Monday night, sending Jose Reyes and prospects to Colorado for Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins. As Toronto's lineup suggests, the Blue Jays are serious about ending their playoff drought this year and next. More»

What Dr. Welter Means For the NFL

On Monday, it was announced that the Arizona Cardinals have hired Dr. Jen Welter as a coaching intern for the team's 2015 training camp and preseason. If the team wants to really be groundbreaking, they would be wise to follow the San Antonio Spurs model. More»

Pondering Dwight Howard's next move

Next summer, Dwight Howard will re-enter unrestricted free agency. He'll be 30, but the coverage (or lack thereof) surrounding it is still surprising. Howard's name should join Kevin Durant on the tip of everybody's tongue. More»

Rodgers Vs. the Best of the Rest

Have we ever had a consensus "best quarterback" in the NFL? If so, it's been rare, but right now most can agree on Aaron Rodgers. Here are some challengers to the throne, 10 quarterbacks who could lay claim to being the best (in some category) last season. More»

The problem with the UFC boss

Dana White lashed out at fired cutman Jacob "Stitch" Duran last week, the latest in a string of calloused comments made by UFC's head honcho -- far from the diplomatic dialogue expected of the largest MMA organization as it attempts to mitigate a self-inflicted PR nightmare. More»

Revisiting last year's Trade Deadline

The week leading up to the MLB non-waiver Trade Deadline is usually an exciting one, but it's also almost certainly not going to matter at all. Here's a look at every 2014 Trade Deadline move and see what effect it had on the eventual postseason. More»

Josh Hill Has Big Shoes to Fill

It'd be hard to argue that Jimmy Graham wasn't the most integral piece of the New Orleans Saints team over the past four seasons. But although Graham is difficult to replace, the Saints appear to be confident in his heir: Josh Hill. More»

UCLA Won't Step Aside For USC

UCLA has won three in a row against rival USC, and that shouldn't be forgotten entering 2015. Even with Brett Hundley gone, a loaded Bruins team stands as perhaps the biggest obstacle to a return to national prominence by the Trojans. More»

Seau Non-Speech Due To 'Policy'

Sydney Seau will not speak at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for her late father, Junior. But the Hall's rationale for censoring Ms. Seau appears flummoxing at best, since until a few years ago, it was the norm for family members to speak at posthumous inductions. More»

Johnny Cueto not enough for Royals

Johnny Cueto immediately becomes the best starter on the Royals' roster, but the KC rotation is still relatively weak. If Kansas City is serious about going for it this year, it should consider adding another front-line arm. More»

Selling Might Be Logical Route For O's

The Baltimore Orioles aren't out of the playoff picture. But should they be buyers (as they have insisted they will be) or sellers at the Trade Deadline? With the number of free agents-to-be on their roster, it might make sense to cut bait. More»

The Headline The NFL Doesn't Want

The Pro Football Hall of Fame will not let Junior Seau's family speak on his behalf at his induction. By telling Sydney Seau that she can't speak for her late father, the Hall has brought attention to the ceremony that it has always wanted, but for the wrong reasons. More»

In appreciation of first-base coaches

Among the bases coached, first base is the least sexy. The guy at third base is giving signs, deciding whether to send runners, while the first-base coach is slapping guys on the butt and taking their gloves. But let's take a closer look at what's really going on. More»

Lamoriello and His New Apprentice

The Toronto Maple Leafs shocked the hockey world by hiring Lou Lamoriello as GM after he abruptly left the Devils (an organization he's been with for 28 years). But most intriguing is how he'll mentor Leafs' assistant GM Kyle Dubas, one of the brightest minds in the NHL. More»

Oklahoma An Unlikely Sleeper
