He’s Baaaack!: Woods resurrect the world of golf

He’s Baaaack!: Woods resurrect the world of golfMardi Gras is over, and Tiger Woods is back.  A new commercial shows professional golfers embracing the flash of cameras, increased winnings, and a general jocular good time.  In the middle of one of their locker room joke sessions, Tiger Woods suddenly walks in the locker room and immediately all of the good times stop rolling (Lassiez Les Bons Temps Rouler…no mas).


March madness is coming

Some would say that it is the “most wonderful time of the year”, but most will call it March Madness. The NCAA Basketball Tournament is coming soon with all its pomp, circumstance, and buzzer-beating shots. Every year, the many who embrace the university culture join hands to pass along their bracket of 64 collegiate teams vying for the title of NCAA Basketball Champion.


NBA Mid-Season Report

The NBA All-Star Game is over, and now it’s time for the real part of the NBA season.  If you have ever gone to an NBA basketball game, you have witnessed the slow lumbering that takes place in the first half of the game, versus the “playing for money” (and stats) feel that you get from the second half of the game.  That is unless your star player cashed out in the first half.

Of steroids, mice, and men

Of steroids, mice, and menIt’s not that hard to tell when a human being is out of balance physically.  If a person has an eating problem, whether gluttony or bulimia, it ain’t hard to tell much of the time.  When people smoke too much, their faces look weathered and they become Barry White sound-a-likes.  And when people get muscularly swollen-up, and they haven’t been to jail, you have to question how they managed to go from a normal example of pique human fitness, to: “DANG!”

Now that was a Superbowl

Maaaaan!  Now that’s what I’m talkin bout! That was a Super Bowl!  I hope all of you non-sports people who I run into here and there, were watching that football game.  Last years’ Super Bowl was very exciting as well, but locally there were strong feelings of support for Minnesota grown Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. which heightened attention and emotional investment towards this year’s game.  A special support rally was held at The Favor Café (913 W. Lake St.) in Uptown, for some of the people close to Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. and Sr.

Alabama wooing the U Gophers’ winning Tubby Smith

Considering the last two Minnesota winters, I can’t say that I would blame a country boy (man) like Tubby Smith for wanting to take the alleged basketball coaching opportunity that the University of Alabama is said to be courting him for. Seeing how Alabama typically seems to go after coaches that they want like a kid with money goes after candy, I wouldn’t be surprised if they come up with a dollar figure that any fool would take. So in the meantime and in-between time everyone should soak up some of this University of Minnesota basketball goodness before it vanishes into thin air.

Uh-Oh! Guess who is winning?!

Uh-Oh!  Guess who is winning?!In a television interview after one of their recent wins Kevin McHale said that he told the Timberwolves team, “Have fun.  Being able to play in the NBA is like a dream.  It goes fast, and when it’s over you wish you could go back to sleep.”  That is a great quote, and apparently it and a few other factors have come together to jumpstart the Timberwolves.
