Catching Up Again

It's been a while since I've written anything and as much as I would like to believe this will be a return to normalcy...I can't promise that it will be consistent in any way.  It is the holidays. But...since it's been a while and there have been some big topics in sports this week, I …


Nah, I’m good.

The day is here. Tim Tebow officially graces Fluor Field in downtown Greenville to take on our Greenville Drive for the first time tonight...and I'm not going to cover it.  I won't be there tonight, I won't be there tomorrow and I won't be there Thursday...even if it is "Thirsty Thursday." Why? Well, that's simple. …

As sports fans, we have witnessed a ton of greatness over the last couple of decades.  We've seen countless records change hands and at times change hands again.  We've seen dynasties in multiple leagues and we've seen legends rise and fall.

In 1996, the New York Yankees began their first dynasty since the 70s. They have failed to be one since. It’s been 14-years actually, but Yankee fans won’t have to wait much longer. Before getting into why the 2017 Yankees are better built for a long LONG run, let’s revisit the 1995 Yankees. You know, …


Hypocrisy On Display

    Here we go with the unwritten rules idiocy...once again... A pitcher held a grudge for three years and he's the hero. Why? Easy...hypocrisy. The hypocrisy surrounding home run celebrations and unwritten rules has been mind-boggling from the start.  Whether it's the "change baseball for me" crowd, "baseball is boring" guy or the old …
