I was thinking about all the “amazing” changes that … Continue reading Baseball Re-Invented: Changing The Ground Rule Double to A Triple

You Have a 26% Chance of Finishing This Article

The oddsmaker and sports have gone hand in hand for over a century. The odds for a prize fighter to retain his title against an up and coming, spirited nobody. The chance or percentage of chance for a major college basketball powerhouse to win the NCAA tournament. The statistical probability for a baseball team to make the playoffs, who is yet to play a game in a particular season. Some person or computer or group is telling you, the fan, that your team has a 43% chance of making the playoffs or winning a game or securing a first round … Continue reading You Have a 26% Chance of Finishing This Article

The Cleveland Cavaliers Have Put Themselves On The Doorstep of Boston Sports History

In the first two games of 2017 Eastern Conference finals of the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers have completely dominated and downright humiliated the Boston Celtics.  The Cavaliers took both games at the Boston Garden by 13 and 44 points, respectively, to take a commanding lead going back to Cleveland.  To make matters seem even more dire for Celtics fans, Boston point guard and fan favorite Isaiah Thomas will be out for the remainder of the playoffs with a lower body injury.  Down 2-0, without arguably their best player, and now heading on the road for two crucial games which may … Continue reading The Cleveland Cavaliers Have Put Themselves On The Doorstep of Boston Sports History

When NBA Stars Decide to Rest, The Fans Lose Big Time

The Boston Celtics lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers this past week 114-91.  LeBron James played 38 minutes and score 36 points, grabbed nearly 10 rebounds and had 6 assists.  Another great performance by one of this generation’s most outstanding players.  I didn’t attend that game, nor will I pay to go see another NBA game for the foreseeable future.  And here is my reasoning: A management or coach’s decision to rest a certain player during a regular season game in 2014, which I paid full price for, has left a bad taste in my mouth and an empty hole in … Continue reading When NBA Stars Decide to Rest, The Fans Lose Big Time

Hidden Figures – A Must See Biopic on the American Dream

The challenge every biopic film has is mixing fact with Hollywood’s influence.  A biopic film is based on actual events, recent or historical, which give depth to the story through interesting dialogue and sometimes sensationalism of these events.  It is the filmmaker’s task to educate the audience, whether they were alive during the events or not, as well as entertain the audience.  Otherwise, it feels more like a movie you watch in high school for your US or World History class.  And if I can recall, those were certainly educational but not too entertaining. I have watched a number of … Continue reading Hidden Figures – A Must See Biopic on the American Dream
