HURRICANES should NOT be named after PEOPLE – its EMBARRASSING and INSULTING. HOW ABOUT GREEK LETTERS INSTEAD?

At first I was amused about a hurricane named Sandy.  Maybe the hurricane could clean up DC or and there might be an amusing headline. But it is completely out of hand.  I am embarrassed more than amused.  It is enough to make me go back to my given name:  Elwood.  I like Elwood for […]

INJURY SCARE? Or BREAKOUT OLYMPICS for BOTSWANA?

These two articles update us on the Botswana Olympic team.  At least two of the five athletes were in a injury scare in this article from the Sunday Standard (note the unusual word in the title; I certainly would not ever use it but they speak British English in Botswana!) The two, men’s 400 meters […]

THE OLYMPICS are TOTALLY DEBASED by PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES; LET’S STOP IT! I’ve HAD IT! I WILL NOT ROOT for USA BASKETBALL in THIS OLYMPICS or ANY ONE until the pros are GONE!

This is an extraordinary article in the AP by Paul Newberry on the statements Dwayne Wade of the NBA made in regard to the Olympic Games.  Here is Newberry’s talk on the Wade remarks: A day earlier, Wade was quoted as saying there should be some compensation for NBA stars who give up a good […]

WOULD THIS BE BUTLER’S FIRST NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP OR NOT?

1924 was a great year.  My legal hero, John W. Davis was nominated for President (only time I’d voted Democrat) but was crushed in November by another great President, Calvin Coolidge.  Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams ran to Olympic glory and gold (and Liddell glorified Christ by not running on the Sabbath).  The Macy’s Thanksgiving […]

I MIGHT GET IN TROUBLE, BUT HERE IT GOES…

I was not going to blog on the male wrestler who defaulted rather than wrestle a female.  Too risky.  But I felt it was right thing to do.  To paraphrase my favorite sports hero, Eric Liddell, in Chariots of Fire, if I blog, I blog for God.  (Any reader who wants to know more or […]

TIM TEBOW: AN ERIC LIDDELL FOR OUR TIMES – AND MAYBE FIRST ROUND AFTER ALL!

Jay Mariotti at Fanhouse came to the same conclusion:  Tebow in the First Round of NFL draft is great for the league.  I hope we’re right.  Remember, you heard it here at Virginia Right!   Tim Tebow may well be the Eric Liddell for our times.  Liddell is the 1924 British runner who refused to race on Sunday […]

TIM TEBOW, THE BYU WOMEN’S RUGBY TEAM AND BRIAN DAVIS

I wonder if the surge of interest in Tim Tebow in the NFL draft is a response to the Ben Roethlisberger saga.  In fairness to the Steelers QB, it might be an attempt to set up a famous person – or it could be as reported to the police.  But it’s certainly true that unless […]
