Andy Murray Wins His First Major!

In blustery conditions in the 2012 US Open, Andy Murray won the U.S. Open against Nova Djokovic to earn his first grand slam and reward a nation that has waited over 75 years for a men’s tennis title.

If someone once said “winning isn’t easy”, they  unknowingly were describing Andy’s Murray’s quest to win his first major.  Andy Murray is an amazing tennis player in an era of men’s tennis greatness.  He hit his prime when there were not one–but three–Tiger Woodsish tennis players.

Gay Men In Sports: The Real Issue That Is Not Addressed

gay-men-in-sportsSeveral years ago, NBA center Jason Collins announced that he is gay. He is the first active NBA player to come out as gay. And there is one real issue that nobody addresses with gay men in sports: the locker room.

Political correctness informs what so many people are willing–or unwillingly–to say regarding gay men in sports but we cannot hide from this one issue that needs to be addressed.

I applaud Jason Collins for coming out and hope that his actions prevent others from hiding their identities throughout their athletic careers. And, I detest any athlete who refuses to accept a gay athlete as his teammate.

Oprah Interviews Lance Armstrong

On January 17th and 18th of 2013, the much-anticipated interview of Lance Armstrong by Oprah Winfrey took place. It is now available and you can watch the full Lance Armstrong interview below.

Holly Holm knocks out Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey Knocked Out Cold By Holly Holm: Memories of Lennox Lewis vs Hasim Rahman

ronda rousey loses fight

The Knockout!

I’ve watched every Ronda Rousey fight since the beginning and cannot help but think she is one of the hottest babes on the planet – the perfect exemplar of strength and beauty.

Her lead-up to this fight was uncharacteristic. She manufactured malevolence towards her opponent Holly Holm where none was really warranted. I sensed fear.

Then I watched some of Holly Holm’s fights and saw her leg kick in action and I knew why.

Superbowl Ends with Interception

Seahawks Superbowl Victory Intercepted

The Seattle Seahawks lost it all by doing the unthinkable: running a pass play when they have the league’s best in Marshawn Lynch to deliver the game winning touchdown. But, was it so unthinkable?

It’s now the morning after. I confess…I have not watched one iota of Superbowl coverage following the game, the interception, and possibly the end of the dynasty that wasn’t.Read More
