Phillies conduct necessary payroll surgery

The Phillies went under the knife of Dr. Ruben Amaro, Jr. Tuesday. The team that brought great joy and a parade to Broad Street was beginning to show signs of wear and tear, and the team's general manager attempted to renew the spirit...

Olympic opening ceremony a waste of money

Forty-two million dollars was spent on the opening ceremony of the London Olympics. If Facebook is any indication, most of us who watched on TV weren't impressed...

NCAA brings the hammer down on Penn State

The NCAA came out with a laundry list of sanctions today against Penn State for the role of 4 administrators, including coach Joe Paterno, in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal...

How do we remember Joe Paterno?

With the results of the investigation into Penn State's response to Jerry Sandusky indicating a large coverup involving Joe Paterno, what is the legendary coach's legacy...

Olympics? Will you watch?

The Summer Olympics come around every 4 years and in just two weeks, they will be upon us, live from London. The 2008 Olympics were memorable for Michael Phelps' 8 gold medals...

Possible Phillies Overhaul?

The Phillies are starting to feel like that beautiful sports car whose engine won't turn over. You remember that one: The roadster which gave you 5 straight division titles, 2 World Series appearances, and that amazing parade down Broad Street in 2008...

Let the fire sale begin

The Phillies are out of it...and maybe for several years. The Washington Nationals appear to be the new Phillies. With no apparent recovery on the horizon, the Phils are destined to be sellers in just a few weeks...

This could be a long summer

The Phillies are what they are...a not very good baseball team in an improving division. I hate to make the prediction in mid-June but I just don't see the Phillies making the playoffs this year, ending their string at 5 years...

Next 6 weeks will decide Phillies season

With Roy Halladay out for the next 6 to 8 weeks, that period of time will decide the Phillies 2012 season. The Phillies offense has improved without Chase Utley and Ryan Howard but is still only just adequate...

Remembering Buddy Hurlock

Buddy Hurlock passed away Sunday night. Buddy was a sportswriter at the Wilmington News-Journal and was only 40 years old. Many probably remember the story...

Old Dominion departs

The second school in under a week is bolting from the CAA. Old Dominion has announced its intention to leave the CAA for Conference USA effective July 1st 2013...

Will VCU find happiness in the A-10?

My answer to that is a qualified yes. The CAA's darling and top team over the last few years is heading to the Atlantic 10, a conference that has received multiple bids to the NCAA tournament most years...

UD athletics facing a crossroads

The University of Delaware athletic department...and university as a whole...is facing a crossroads...all because of the wanderlust of other schools in the CAA...

Gooddell the hugger

I don't usually watch much of the NFL draft (and didn't this year) but the only thing that jumped out at me was the ludicrous hugs commissioner Roger Gooddell gave to all the first round draft picks (and they gave him back)...

The Wolverine retires

One of the all-time Philadelphia Eagle fan favorites is calling it a career. Brian Dawkins, who spent 13 great seasons with the Eagles before his last 3 in Denver, announced this week that he will hang up his shoulder pads...

Playoffs are what's good and bad about hockey

At least this year, the NHL playoffs embody all that is good...and bad...about hockey. Perhaps more than any sport, the NHL playoffs are the best of any sport, because the intensity is so great and the players bring it every minute of the game...

What, no golf yet this year?

Here it is April 13th, we've had numerous warm days, and I've yet to set foot on a golf course. I talked with one of my co-workers the other day and he said he had been out a dozen times so far...

Phils have many questions

So how many games do you think the Phillies will win this year? I'm thinking around 90....maybe a few more, but nowhere near the 102 of last year. Thursday's season opener at Pittsburgh, a 1-0 win, seems to me to be what we'll see a lot of this year...

Thoughts on the NCAA tournament

I know I have been wrong on this before but I don't see any way Kentucky loses this weekend or Monday night. They have too many horses, way too talented, and one of these years Calipari is going to win the big one...

Disappointing ending to a great season

Anyone who thought, before the season started, the Delaware women's basketball team would finish 31-2 this season, should be out buying lottery tickets...
