Triple Crown

June 13, 2014
By

Another year and another horse did not win the Triple Crown in racing.  California Chrome proved what many experts said, that a horse today cannot run 3 races in 5 weeks and beat rested horses in a mile and one half race.  It was unfortunate that his owner let his emotions get in the...

Baseball Draft vs. Football Draft

June 12, 2014
By

What a difference there is in the two draft systems!  All of us have witnessed the pomp and circumstance of the NFL draft.  It is a media “darling”.  The baseball draft was also on ESPN, but I doubt whether many of you tuned in to watch.  When the NFL is drafting, almost every team takes their full...

When will Joey Votto be back?  Reds fans hope that by the time this article appears on WRBI that Joey is again active with the Reds.  They say he has a quad injury, but some people are beginning to question just what is going on.  We know that he had a knee injury in...

Flopping in Pro Basketball

June 5, 2014
By

I am really not a fan of pro basketball.   Lately, a lot of pro players have been called for “flopping” during a playoff game and they are fined heavily by the league office.  “Flopping” is called when a defensive player tries to get a charge called on an offensive player.  Pro basketball is a very physical game,...
