I’m a subscriber to a weekly newspaper The Italian Tribune, a still in print news outlet for Italian-Americans. Obviously I’m of Italian ethnicity. Like most newspapers they have main features, regular articles, and little sidebars of particular interest. I just went through my June 6th edition and saw this little sidebar that I think the […]

I love women’s golf and women’s tennis. After that? Meh. But women’s sports stories like this are fabulous: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7201657/American-teen-15-takes-idol-Venus-Williams-week-sitting-exams.html More

Imagine that you are one of the most successful and richest black men in America. You’re adored by millions for your athletic skills.

Many people find semantics boring. But I never did. An ongoing discussion in Ricochet’s Gamers and Geeks group about the definition of roleplaying games (RPGs) reminds me of my philosophy professor’s lesson on semantics. When trying to clearly identify what a thing is, identifying what it is not can be helpful. Our teacher challenged us […]

The United States Open is the ultimate conservative golf tournament. Let it sink in for a second. I know what you are thinking. What about The Masters? I am not saying it is not great, if not the greatest golf tournament in the world. I am saying The U.S. Open is the golf tournament a […]

Laila Anderson is an 11-year old St. Louis Blues hockey fan. When her parents took her to games she would make her way to the tunnel leading back to the home dressing room and fist-bump the players on their way in. She became such a fixture the players started to notice her.

Two years ago she was diagnosed with HLH, or Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocystosis, a disease so rare only 15 children in the United States are known to have it. Simply put, it makes your white blood cells attack other cells in your body, deeply compromising your immune system.

Dear Boxing, Long ago, you were my favorite. Over the years I watched lots of great fights but somewhere along the line we drifted apart. Maybe it was the Pay-Per-View fees, the bad decisions, ear biting, the multiple titles that kept the best from ever fighting against each other, but at some point I stopped […]

Jim is back! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of New Yorkers bluntly rejecting Mayor Bill de Blasio’s 2020 presidential bid but it does give Greg an idea of how to thin the 24-candidate field. They also applaud Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai for giving […]

What It’s Like to Run the Boston Marathon

 

It’s hard to do the Boston Marathon.

After 123 years, the race itself now seems inextricably bound up in an aura of athletic excellence, reaching near-mythic status. Just to say “Boston Marathon” (or even just “Boston”) is to invoke a goal or an accomplishment of seemingly impossible caliber. But if you have your sights set on Boston, as I did, then this is exactly what you are trying to do: become part of one of the most famous and grueling athletic pursuits accessible to non-elites and non-Olympians.

The Vegas Golden Knights and the San Jose Sharks have a passionate, and intense dislike for each other. 205 penalty minutes accrued in a seven game series is a pretty good indication of the passionate, intense dislike between the two teams. They hate each other. With 10 minutes to go in the third period of […]
