WRITER in CHICAGO TRIBUNE said on JULY 19: NO MORE PRO BASKETBALL TEAMS in OLYMPICS!

Chicago values might not include Chick-fil-A but this writer (Gerald D. Skoning) gets it right about the basketball!  A few highlights: Stern said he hopes to make the Olympics a 23-and-younger event, returning it to the college kids and NBA players with only a few years of pro experience. That would be a good start, […]

MATT HUNTER in 2009 GETS IT RIGHT about the OLYMPICS! AMATEURS ONLY!

This column in Bleacher Report by Matt Hunter in 2009 says it right:  No pro athletes in the Olympics! Olympics today are filled with professional athletes in all team sports in both the summer and winter Olympic games. The Olympics has lost that edge that it once possessed. The youth and up and coming players […]

MICHAEL CALLAHAN at the PHILLY POST is STARTING to GET IT about the OLYMPICS!

I stumbled upon these articles by Michael Callahan in regards to the Olympic Games.  He first called for people to not watch the Games at all: But it’s not the overblown theatrics of the modern Olympics that has me tuning out. It’s the plain fact that we have lost, in the zealous xenophobia that now […]

LET’S KEEP A NATION LIKE BOTSWANA IN MIND when we CONSIDER MEN’S BASKETBALL or DREAM TEAM 1994. NEVER AGAIN HAVE SPORTS IMPERIALISM!

Two fascinating articles shed light on my feelings about the Olympic Games. The Republic of Botswana (one of my favorite African nations for its continuous peaceful electoral history, never a military coup, respect for human rights and an independent judiciary, and enormously high standard of living compared to other African nations) has never won an […]

MAKE the CALL, SECRETARY CLINTON! GET THE 1972 MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM MEDALS BACK and HAVE PRESIDENT OBAMA give them (and perhaps some sort of civilian honor) to the TEAM!

I was pondering this issue that ought to be finally dealt with.  It has been forty years since the USA basketball team was robbed of their gold medal due to politics and enormously bad calls. Try this conclusion: The US immediately protested against the result, with their appeal being heard by a five-man panel. The […]

CURLING IN VIRGINIA?

Curling is that great sport with rocks and brooms.  It’s “sweeping” (pun intended) across the nation.  The South is the most significant part of the nation not in a curling region.  There is no curling club in all of the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Several persons (including your blogger) are looking into starting one here in […]
