POIGNANT story about USA BASKETBALL – too bad SPORTS IMPERIALISM may well keep them out of the OLYMPICS!

I could hardly read this story from the Lafayette (IN) Journal & Courier without getting a bit teary – following in his father’s footsteps on the national team: The letter Purdue sophomore Vince Edwards opened in March contained more than a USA Basketball invitation. It bridged a family connection to Team USA that stretched back […]

LET’S WEAR RED, WHITE and BLUE THURSDAY for the US TEAM!

Even though I have low expectations of the World Cup soccer tournament, (I contend and nothing has changed my mind on this that the powers that be in soccer do not want the US to win.  Be in the Cup, yes, because of TV ratings in the USA.  But not win it.  Soccer is one […]

THIS is HOW USA CURLING will get the RESOURCES it NEEDS to WIN in FUTURE OLYMPICS!

I am reprinting the text that I and nine million (Well maybe 90,000!) other US curlers (I am purported to be a member of USA Curling) got in our email and it says it all: Dear Curler: The spirit of the Olympics is captivating. Every two years the world comes together to cheer for the competition […]

OLYMPIC WRAP UP: No NEW MEDAL NATIONS; NBC listened to CALLAHAN; SLOVENIA did FABULOUS; NHL NEEDS to GO; SOMETHING MUST BE DONE about USA CURLING!

Well, the Olympics are over and I miss them already.  But here are a few wrapping up notes: NO new nation won a medal this Winter Olympics.  Just as the website (Infostradasports) said!

DEPUTY PM CLEGG challenges UKIP LEADER FARAGE to a DEBATE on EUROPE! THAT ought to be as CLOSE as a USA OLYMPIC BASKETBALL GAME!

USA MEDALS in LUGE: FIRST TIME in 50 YEARS!

Luge (and it’s first cousin skeleton) is a sport I would not try in a thousand years!  You slide down a course at extreme speed with what is essentially a toboggan.  I admire anyone who is willing to do that.  I don’t even like roller coasters! But in keeping with my commitment to talk about […]
