Tiger Woods and the Leftist Mob

In many ways, the election of Donald Trump occurred for this very reason. Americans in the “fly-over” states felt like they were being belittled by elitists on the coasts who held them in contempt. They saw a media that was dishonest and promoted political correctness and identity politics over accuracy in its reporting.

LeBron James and the Quest for Excellence

The excellence of LeBron James is something all basketball fans ought to relish. We have never seen a player like him before, and we may never see another again. Standing at 6’8,” 250 pounds with a vertical jump well over three feet, LeBron’s renowned athleticism and physical ability are what have allowed him to put together the most prolific basketball career of all time. Few realize, however, the dedication this also requires off the court.

Character Still Matters: Why the Browns Messed up the Draft Again

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the Cleveland Browns, always in possession of a good draft pick, will find a way to screw it up. This year was no different. The 2018 NFL Draft began with Cleveland having the first pick. For a team desperately in need of a quarterback, this draft was full of them. Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, and Lamar Jackson all showed promise of being able to play at an elite level. Because of this, the secondary qualities of each quarterback, namely their character, should have been taken more into account by the Browns organization when making the decision to go with Baker Mayfield.

Baseball's Classical Music Problem

Take time to reveal paradise to a friend by taking them out to a ballgame and sharing with them the joys of baseball. Similarly, open up the ears of others by introducing them to classical music--how it works, what it means, and the lives of the composers. These noble institutions can only survive if passed on to the next generation. Only by remaining authentic and making converts will baseball and classical music become healthy again and live on far into this century.

If I Never Get Back

For us fans at the ballpark, we would do better to close out Snapchat and pull out a scorecard. Phones have no place in church. Perhaps the same manners ought to be extended to a game sacred to the American people. Maybe then we might understand the game wholly; maybe then we’ll be less inclined to demand the game change; maybe then we’ll start to recover some of the virtues that have been forgotten in the chaos of modernity. If we cannot find joy in baseball, then it ought to be a signal to us that there is some corruption within ourselves.

"My kingdom for a teammate" LeBron's frustration in Cleveland

Whatever happens this offseason, the Cavaliers are LeBron’s team for the duration of the playoffs. If he hopes to win he needs his teammates to play at a much higher level than they did in the first game. However, by walking off the court with time left on the clock he made that much less likely. If his teammates can tell that their best player is mentally checked out it is unlikely that we will see any kind of improved performance from Cleveland. Write here…

Why the NBA Playoffs Need to be Fixed

The NBA playoffs start today. Other than basketball die-hards, most people have probably not been paying much attention to the NBA since the conclusion of last year’s championship. Due to a flaw in the NBA’s playoff system, the end of the season featured a bevy of mediocre teams fighting each other for the final playoffs spots while championship contenders like Cleveland and Golden State have been on cruise control since January. This leads to a schedule full of meaningless games and a slew of first round playoffs matches with little suspense.

Why NBA Teams Should Tank

    As the NBA season draws to a close most fans will be following the teams at the top of the standings as they fight for playoff position. However, there is also an equally competitive fight occurring at the bottom of the standings as eight teams battle for the worst record in the league to improve their odds of landing a high draft pick. Intentionally losing, otherwise known as tanking, is controversial throughout the league as Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was recently fined for admitting that this was his team’s strategy.
