(Mr. T's Sports Report) The result for Blount is branding for life, and the loss of multiple millions of dollarsLoose lips sink ships; I’ll never forget my older brother telling me that one.  The altercation which took place following the recent University of Oregon versus Boise State University football game was a useful example of the Loose Lips Theory, and much more.  Following the incident involving Oregon star running-back LeGarratte Blount his coach referred to the young man as a good kid, and that this unforgettable event would result in a “teachable moment.”  I couldn’t agree more, but think attention needs to be paid to the larger scene, in order to absorb some greater lessons.

A window on the local cricket scene

A window on the local cricket sceneAsk Charles Peterson why he plays cricket and he’ll say, “It’s in my blood.” He’ll recall childhood days spent with his brothers and friends in Antigua, playing cricket in the street.
