NO MIRACLE on ICE again in 2014! SPORTS IMPERIALISM will be AGAIN at the WINTER GAMES: NHL players allowed to play for their nation!

I had nursed the faint hope that perhaps sports imperialism in the form of pro athletes in the hockey portion of the Winter Olympics would due out because the NHL would not alter its season to accommodate the pros in the Games.  But alas (as I am in many areas since I got married!) I […]

OLYMPIC GOLF – PROS again! ANY WAY you SAY it: It’s SPORTS IMPERIALISM!

A good solid article in Golf Digest on Olympic golf in 2016.  And it’s coming: And some even want to see a throwback to the Avery Brundage era and limit the competition to amateurs. Sorry, folks, but today’s Olympic Games–in almost all sports–showcase the best athletes competing in the most popular formats. So, for golf, […]

IOC suspends the INDIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE for (Don’t laugh too hard!) GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE! I’m so glad the SOVIET UNION wasn’t guilty of THAT!

This article made me see red today:  Suspension of Indian Olympic Association figures in RS The reason cited by the International Olympic Committee was (get this!) “governmental interference”.  Don’t laugh too hard.  You might get hurt.  Here are the pertinent paragraphs: In a huge embarrassment for India, the International Olympic Committee on Tuesday suspended the […]

WON’T ANYONE STAND UP for WHAT’S RIGHT when it comes to OLYMPIC BASKETBALL? NOT RUSSIA or LITHUANIA!

We already know that the NBA blog and presumedly the players do not like the proposed Stern 23 and under rule for Olympic Basketball. And while it is not a complete victory, as William Wilberforce would say (he endorsed a neutral bill that had the tendency to eliminate 80% of the British slave trade), it […]

OUTRAGEOUS SCORE in OLYMPIC BASKETBALL GAME SHOWS WHY PRO ATHLETES have NO PLACE in the OLYMPICS!

156-73 I don’t know what to say I am so angry.  I want to join the President Obama apology tour.  This kind of outrageous mismatch is exactly the reason why the pro athletes must GO from the Olympic games.  They skew the results so as to hinder true competition.  They offend other nations needlessly.  (And […]

CURLING is in the NEWS! VERNON DAVIS of the 49ers in an AVID CURLER! (AND YOU can curl here in Richmond at the ICEZONE on Saturday 2/4!)

I was crushed by the defeat of the Saints by the otherwise hated 49ers (as any Saints fan will tell you, the Saints and 49ers had a huge rivalry when the 49ers were hot and the Saints were getting better and were rivals for the division title!) but one bright spot:  Vernon Davis was the […]
