Keidel: Is Super Bowl Sunday Even Super Anymore?

I’ve been alive and lucid for about 37 of the 47 Super Bowls, and it’s hard to recall a game this big shrink in the shadow of peripheral stories.

Keidel: For The First Time Since 1977, I’m Ashamed To Be A Yankees Fan

I heard Yankees fans whine about Russell Martin, Joe Girardi, Ichiro Suzuki and, well, everyone but the sainted captain at shortstop. I had to roll my window down a foot in case of car (and fan) sickness.

Keidel: Buck Showalter And Joe Girardi Make An Interesting Juxtaposition

Joe Girardi can’t jam the reset button and make his team young and voracious again. But he is expected to beat Baltimore. And if he doesn’t, he could go hungry.

Paige One: There Will Never Be Another Bert Randolph Sugar

There was no mold for Bert Sugar when he was born, and Lord knows the mold has been broken for decades. I will seriously miss him. There will never be another Bert Randolph Sugar — trust me.

Paige One: Stop The Linsanity!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of all of the play-on-words being perpetuated on Jeremy Lin’s last name.

I have heard so many variations that I am just sick of it.

Paige One: Angie And The Don

As taxing as the Super Bowl coverage has been, when death pays a visit, it makes you stop and give pause … and praise. Two giants passed within days of each other. One is from the world of sports and the other from the world of entertainment.

Paige One: My Sports Wish List For 2012

Okay, so all the Christmas decorations should be put away by now and 2012 is in full swing . I hope it’s not too late for a few sports wishes for the New Year.

Paige One: Hey Parents, Pay Attention To Your Kid’s Coaches

I know many of you don’t and can’t coach your children. I know some of you like to use sports as a pseudo babysitting service. But with all the questions surrounding coaches today, you as a parent have to be more vigilant when others are coaching your kids.

Paige One: Enough, Penn State, Enough!

I usually enjoy following a story that has legs like Watergate, Rex Ryan’s babbling or even the O.J. trial. But the creepiness of the PSU underage sex scandal has driven me to say, “Enough already!”

Paige One: A Tale of Two Joes

This has been one hell of a week for a couple of guys named Joe. Both are iconic figures. One’s rep is intact while the other’s is in tatters.

Paige One: What Will Rex Ryan Say?

This guarantee this and guarantee that approach is great when you actually win something like the Super Bowl, but when all you do to talk and don’t back it up, you sound more like Patrick Ewing and less like Mark Messier.

Paige One: Dumbfounded By Las Vegas, Mayweather-Ortiz

The Mayweather-Ortiz fight left Tony Paige shaking his head — as did a few of the sights and sounds of Las Vegas.

Paige One: How Can You Not Like Baseball?

Even though football is happily back on track for many American sports fans, I still feel the pull of baseball.

Paige One: John Mackey, Forever The Man

He was “the man” before the term was used in professional sports. He was John Mackey, the end all, be all Hall of Famer. He was the prototype tight end who died on July 7th at the age of 69 of dementia.
