HOW MANY WINNING SUPER BOWLS TO FINISH FOOTBALL

    Winning Super Bowls make history every year, like this year’s comeback. And it’s still not enough.   Hardly anyone argues that Tom Brady isn’t the best ever. Better than Joe and Terry with their handful of rings and MVP gear. You’ve got to give it to him. Others say he’s the best of […]

SUPER BOWL RECORD BREAKS ON MY DVR. OFFICIAL REVIEW

  One Super Bowl record goes to the top of the list. No spoilers.   Every modern sports fan has a back up plan, as in DVR back up. Especially on Super Bowl Sunday. At least that’s the plan. Since every commercial isn’t Super Bowl grade, or even close when you can actually figure out […]

BLAZERS MAKE A PORTLAND BOO BOO ON YOGI FERRELL

  It ain’t over ’til it’s over for the Blazers? Yogi says it’s over.   How does a six foot tall player on a ten day contract light up the Blazers for thirty two? The numbers add up to Yogi Ferrell. No longer a cup of coffee player with a quick look at the big […]

ROBIN RICHARDS TO THE RESCUE

What would Robin Richards do?   I grew up in a small Oregon town that had one big team, the wrestling team. And I wasn’t a wrestler. After working my athletic magic to the point of no return in football and basketball and baseball, the magic was gone. Washed up at fourteen years old. My […]

Any team the Oregon Ducks lost big games to qualify for this homer.   Oregon Ducks vs Auburn, 2010. All these years later it feels like it’s time to move on from 2010, to get on with new teams and new eras. Not for this Duck fan. Like the alleged Russian hack of the 2016 […]

GREAT ATHLETES, GREAT PARENTS. BETTER RESULTS?

First place is what great athletes aim for. In the beginning competition reflected the nature of mankind.

Losers get disappointment and bitterness. They all come after […]

MAN-SCAPING LEG SHAVERS HAVE THEIR REASONS?

Is any Man-scaping that important? To who? Shapely well-turned legs are a standard on all fashion runways. Their smooth look means one thing, a terrific shaver. No nicks or cuts in high fashion lady-scaping. You’ve seen the ‘model’ walk? They walk a different walk. Maybe it’s the shoes? An anatomical anomaly? They walk a line […]

COACHES CHANGE PEOPLE, PLAYERS CHANGE COACHES

    Sports works best when coaches change people for the better. A coach new to youth football talks about fun. “Football is fun, but more fun when you win,” he says. The new coach played high school football on a championship team. He knew winning. Coaches change people from ordinary to extraordinary in the […]
