WHY IS THE U.S. WOMEN'S SOCCER TEAM HATED?
from 2023 in ( education / news / rss / sports )

For me, it's because they have no class or sportsmanship.

from 2022 in ( education / news / sports )

That's great, but who cares what color they are?.This month, seven members of an all-Black mountain climbing team summited Mount Everest, helped along by eight Sherpa guides. Even though hundreds line up to climb Everest every year, only ten Black people have surmounted the highest peak on Earth before, including... read more

KENTUCKY DERBY 2022
from 2022 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Who You Got?The First Saturday in May is this weekend. Place your bets! I like 3, 12, 13, 6, in that order, but will probably hedge my bets (no pun intended) and play that as a four-way exacta box so it doesn't matter which order they finish.Post ? Horse ? Trainer ? Jockey ? Morning Line Odds1 ? Mo Donegal... read more

MINNESOTA VIKINGS FAN STILL, DOUG?
from 2021 in ( culture / sports / politics )

I still watch international soccer, but have to turn it off when I see that no fans are allowed into the stands; or, worse, when they have fake crowd noise. That one kills me. So fake, both of which were worst in England. But I think that was only last year. All of the 'leisure' industries (sports, entertainment, travel) seem to be the w... read more

KENTUCKY DERBY 2021
from 2021 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Well, the First Saturday in May has come and gone, and all I can say is I am glad I could not get the online betting to work. I would have lost it all. I never let myself get out of control, but did have a $100 allowance. Online gambling has never been legal in Tennessee until late last year (October, 2020?), so I thought I might do a little ... read more

NOW, THIS IS A TRUE SPORTS HERO
from 2021 in ( culture / sports / baseball / hero )

A line drive foul ball hits a four year old boy in the head at Fenway. Jim Rice, realizing in a flash that it would take EMTs too long to arrive and cut through the crowd, sprang from the dugout and scooped up the boy. He laid the boy gently on the dugout floor, where the Red Sox medical team began to treat him...From ... read more

BIKE TRAIL COAST-TO-COAST ACROSS AMERICA
from 2021 in ( culture / sports / cycling )

More than 80 miles of the Great American Rail-Trail are in development right now across 10 states from Washington, D.C., to Washington state, adding roughly 50 miles to more than 2,000 miles of pre-existing trails across 12 states. The project, which bridges about 95 gaps between more than 145 trails, promises a mult... read more

NOW IT (NFL) GETS GOOD
from 2021 in ( culture / sports )

Check out nfl.com/schedules/2020/POST1/this page and you will see the match-ups for this coming weekend (Jan. 9/10, 2021).

HARNESS RACING LEGEND, BILLY DIRECT

KENTUCKY DERBY (2020)
from 2020 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Thousand Words upset Honor A. P. in the Shared Belief Stakes on Saturday at Del Mar and got a Beyer Speed Figure of 104, all of which prompted Marty McGee of Daily Racing Form to cut his odds to 12-1 from last week's 50-1 on his line for the Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5.

BELMONT STAKES TO BE RUN FIRST IN TRIPLE CROWN THIS YEAR
from 2020 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Horse racing fans will not be denied the Triple Crown this year, even though the order of races will be different. Instead of having the Kentucky Derby, which will take place on Sept. 5, kick off the Triple Crown schedule, the series will begin on Saturday with the 2020 Belmont Stakes. This year's race is shorter than usual, as ... read more

NFL CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES

The Titans are my current team (since I live near Nashville); I have always liked the Chiefs and Packers, for some reason; and the 49ers used to be my team... read more

NO MORE PENALTY SHOOTOUTS
from 2015 in ( culture / sports / soccer )

I'm a huge soccer fan, but absolutely hate penalty shootouts. That is no way to decide a game. The winning team needs to be determined by playing the game, not through penalty kicks.That's like deciding an American football game by having five or six players from each team line up and kick field goals at the end of the game, ... read more

AMERICAN PHAROAH VS. SECRETARIAT, WHO WOULD WIN?
from 2015 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

Interesting!The 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah ran the sixth-fastest Belmont Stakes ever, but if he was racing against en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretariat(horse)Secretariat 's record time in 1973, he would have been a distant second.

CALIFORNIA CHROME, A HORSE OF A UNITING COLOR
from 2014 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

Here's hoping he wins! The race is tomorrow, Saturday, late afternoon Eastern time, usually on NBC. They have a 77-year-old trainer who thought his big-time days were over, and a jockey who grew up afraid of horses. They pulled California Chrome's name out of Coburn's cowboy hat. If not for the luck of the draw th... read more

HOLLYWOOD PARK, WHAT A RUN IT HAD
from 2013 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

Today (December 22, 2013) is the last day of racing at Hollywood Park before it's torn down. It's sad, but that part of town has been the 'hood for several decades now, so it's no surprise no one wanted to go there. I worked there once, briefly, with the harness horses. It was back in the 80's, and it was not during a ra... read more

from 2013 in ( culture / sports / football )

The NFL got off to a good start today (2013-09-10), the first real games of the season. Both of my teams, the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers, won!

As I expected, it was nice to ride with 10,000 other cyclists and the party-like attitude of the riders and the people in the towns was really nice. The problem was that it took place in Iowa.
