Paul Konerko: Celebrating a legend as he walks away from the game

Paul Konerko

This weekend, a legend is taking his final swings in a baseball stadium full of cheering fans and standing ovations.

No, not that legend.

I’m talking about Paul Konerko, first baseman for the Chicago White Sox. After 18 seasons in the majors, he’s decided to retire from the game of baseball.

Defending Derek Jeter’s Career

There are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics.

There are also computers and the opinions of Keith Olbermann.

I actually agree with most of Olbermann’s near-seven minute rant on the nauseating year-long celebration of Derek Jeter, the parting gifts received at 18 ballparks and during the 2014 All-Star Game.

Pickin’ On the Big Ten, Week 5: Ice-Cold Hoke Zero

Brady Hoke

The Wheel of Narrative has spun once more, and this week the Big Ten’s arrow is pointing to “hopeful.” (WARNING: Not valid in Washtenaw County, Michigan.) Can the conference keep the good football rolling? Or, now that conference play begins in earnest, are we just being set up for another five-loss conference champion? Your answer begins … now.

NFL Week 4 Against The Spread Picks

Jim Harbaugh

I had a very good Week 3, going 12-4 and now sit at 27-21 on the season. Maybe this a good time to bow out.

Mike Trout: Thrice an AL MVP bridesmaid?

Mike Trout

Mike Trout is the best all-around player in Major League Baseball. There are decent arguments he should have won the American League MVP during his first two full big league seasons, which is remarkable, and he’s probably the front-runner in 2014. But my vote this season goes to Victor Martinez.

Packers’ Offense Goes Missing In Detroit

Rodgers-vs.-Suh

In their loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers put forth one of their worst offensive performances of the Aaron Rodgers era. Their run game was nonexistent, many of Rodgers’ passes were off and their wide receivers dropped too many catchable balls.

Pickin’ On the Big Ten: I’m OK, You’re OK, It’s Not OK

Miami Nebraska

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: The Big Ten plays some pretty important non-conference games in front of millions of eyes, but things don’t quite go according to p-

(The Internet, as one: “Stop! We’ve heard this one!”)

Gladly. You think you’re sick of hearing it? Think how sick I am of writing it.
