Striking the current trend

If we’re talking about good strikes we’re talking about bowling or baseball. Some of the ever-decreasing smoking population might include Lucky Strikes or striking a match as good strikes. In current U.S. news striking is all over the wire, except...

How will we assess Charlie Davies?

We can't be objective about things that we love. I will never admit that Steve Martin has lost a step, no matter how many Cheaper by the Dozen sequels he makes. I will never get mad at bar-b-q ribs, even as...

General Wall and Private McGee

The Wizards rebuilding continues, and judging by their awful performances against Indiana and Philadelphia, there is a long way to go. John Wall and JaVale McGee also gave us some insight into the psyche of young players after the game....

Now do more, Wizards

Yesterday’s deal sending Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong to Atlanta for Mike Bibby, Jordan Crawford, Maurice Evans and a 2011 first-round pick was a smart trade for the Wizards. Now is no time to rest however — GM Ernie Grunfeld should push...

NL East position rankings: right field

Right field in the National League East is full of familiar names. With three future stars and two established superstars there’s undisputed talent in the right corner. The only question is who will be the best of the big names?...

We're ridin' on the deadline

I must admit, I love the NHL trade deadline. I love the speculation, and the rumors (even Eklund's, which are laughably insane), and I love that TSN puts on a studio show for something like 12 consecutive hours. I love...

Carmelo Anthony finally got traded. The special ticker section on the ESPN bottom line that says “Carmelo” will now go the way of the ones that used to say “Favre.” That space is now reserved for some other star whose...
