eisforespy-300x210

The great Bob Costas nailed it. He referred to the Caitlyn Jenner ESPYs Courage Award as “a crass exploitation play.” That’s exactly what it was. Regardless of your feelings on Caitlyn Jenner, there was nothing commendable or courageous about how her ESPY came about. That was an agent-driven, publicist negotiated quid pro quo, and nothing …

Some of the best to ever play the game joined the festivities for the 86th Major League Baseball All-Star Game on Tuesday at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park. I think it was a nice touch to add interest to a game a lot of folks have stopped watching with any real kind of interest. I …

TROY: Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds and PEDs

blog

I follow the St. Louis Cardinals, lightly pay attention to the Atlanta Braves, and outside of that, I don’t pay much attention to whatever else is happening in baseball. The 162-game regular season isn’t my cup of tea (although cheap beer and summertime ball do go hand in hand and I love it), albeit I …

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Coming into Sunday at the Masters, Jordan Spieth held a four-shot lead, and that was enough to ensure that this day would see a memorable story, one either of triumph at a young age or of gut-punch collapse.

Cleveland fans are some of the most loyal and also some of the most long-suffering. How long has it been since we’ve  had a franchise quarterback? Brian Sipe?  And now we have a rookie quarterback saying he wants to lead the team to the Superbowl. He isn’t lacking in swagger, but does he have the …

Congrats. You’ve ended the lives of 298 people who had nothing to do with your stupid cause.

blog

I would like to use this blog entry to congratulate the pro-Russia separatists who accidentally killed 298 people yesterday. Mazel-fucking-tov. You did it. Single-handedly, you did it.
