So was this actually a close series despite the Kings winning in just five games? You bet it was.
Initially, there were a number of reasons why Tonalist would win, as I pointed out in a column last Friday where I picked Tonalist to win.
While it would be a wonderful story if California Chrome and his connections were to win the Triple Crown, I’m simply not sure that it would be the best thing for the industry.
In 1994, many of us thought indeed that “This one will last a lifetime.” But, thankfully, 20 years later, we can hope that a second Cup in our lifetime is, at least, a possibility.
If anything, “instant” replay — whatever you think of it — will help umpires with the “old” transfer rule. Just return the rule to what it used to be. Immediately, if not sooner.
Unless Phil Jackson can make the Knicks a “loaded” team, a club that’s ready to win it all, he won’t even think of coaching. And that’s not going to happen.
The Yankees may want to hold on to the guy because he could very well end up being a key component this season. All this talk, at least by the television announcers, of possibly trading Ichiro, should stop immediately.
Well, it was pretty clear that it was going to be virtually impossible, given their extremely tough bracket, for undefeated Wichita State to win the national championship. In fact, it was hard to believe that the Shockers could get to the Final Four.
Despite the alleged modern-day transparency, some decisions boggle the mind. You have to wonder whether things coaches say have any effect on seeds and matchups.
While Raymond Felton may face a fine and some kind of community service or maybe just probation, if he does have to do some time, any term of imprisonment will be less than Plaxico Burress’ two-year sentence.
Despite all of the apologies and backtracking and tweeting, at the end of the day — and upon reiterating that Crabtree really is a “mediocre” receiver — Sherman still doesn’t get it.
So many people believe that the NBA season begins and LeBron James is crowned the Most Valuable Player before he’s even scored a basket. Well, this season, things are vastly different.
There were two plays during the divisional round of the playoffs that deserve a second look. They were fascinating.
According to a number of published reports prior to Monday’s filing, A-Rod’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said that A-Rod’s legal team would be filing for an injunction. Apparently, no motion papers for an injunction were filed Monday. Why not?
By now you probably know about the virtually impossible legal hurdles that A-Rod has to jump over to get a stay or an injunction or, eventually, an elimination or reduction of that season-long suspension.
