It’s not very often that a saved sanctified Nazarene says “Hell NO” in a blog post. But when the promoters of the new stadium deal in Las Vegas say:  Not Negotiable unless the public puts up $750,000,000 (That’s right, mother million!) first – I say Hell NO!  And any elected leader who does not say […]

Time for Sensible Americans to Take a Good Look at the Olympic Basketball situation: It’s a disgrace!

I started these words before the USA-Serbia men’s basketball game.  And I refuse to watch any of it.  I am right now (after the game) watching Miracle.  (By the way the job interview scene to start out Miracle is required for all job seekers – the Herb Brooks character was poised, confident, knew his stuff […]

I am so thrilled to tout this next nation – first GOLD medal (and a bronze to boot!) and this is the first medal for the Cote d’Ivorie (Most of my readers will know it as the Ivory Coast) since that glorious Games of 1984 where most of the Soviet bloc (except Romania) boycotted the […]

Here We GO Again: UCI Bike Race in Richmond. My Answer is still the SAME: NO unless it is PRIVATE FUNDS USED!

I actually predicted something like this would happen right here at VA Right! But they tend to offer these sporting events again to the areas that hosted it before. So it’s no surprise (well maybe a bit of one) to read this headline (here’s the full article) in the Richmond Times-Dispatch: Group explores holding (another) […]

My tribute to Jack Gravely

I was stunned and saddened to hear of the passing of radio show host Jack Gravely.  Please accept this as my humble and short tribute.

Singapore Wins First GOLD and it’s a doozy: Joseph Schooling Beats Michael Phelps!

Well, to be honest there is some mixed feelings here tonight.  Phelps wins gold again?  Or the Singaporian swimmer?  No gold medal at all for an entire nation.  (Phelps has 22 already!)  But no pro athletes in swimming.  So it’s USA! But I promised:  Pursuant to the Sanders Olympic Policy, any nation who wins their […]

Notes on the Games: Phelps/King/Yuanhui/Douglas…

A few musings on the Games as I recover from a long meteoric (sorry for the pun) night and the Perseids were best right after I wrote the Fiji column about 415 or so. First, isn’t Michael Phelps amazing?  Swimming, one of those amateur sports where there does not appear to be too much sports […]
