Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Russia gave it a go but it's onto the next round for Team USA at the 2010 FIBA World Championship after an 89-79 win. Kevin Durant did the heavy lifting with 33 points -- there's not a team in the tournament that has an answer to Durant's combination of length, athleticism ...

With Lineup Change Coach Q Puts Cup in Reach

Apparently They Play Baseball in Baltimore

Friday, June 4th, 2010

So today I was perusing the news when I came across an interesting thing: Some baseball expansion team named the Baltimore Orioles have fired their manager. Honestly, it seems kind of soon to can your manager when it's your first year of existence. Surely he deserved some more time to grow ...
