The Blue Line: Warriors’ record much greater than Kobe finale

The Blue Line: Warriors’ record much greater than Kobe finale

Last Wednesday night was one of the most historic nights not just in NBA history, but in sports altogether. Kobe Bryant, the NBA’s third highest scorer of all time, dropped 60 points in his final NBA game with the Los Angeles Lakers. That same night, the Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game this season, snapping the 1995-96 Bulls’ long-standing […]

Going For Two: Boston Marathon is unlike any other event

  For those of you who do not know much about me, I was born and raised in a suburb just north of Boston and have been in love with my home city ever since. I am your stereotypical Bostonian — I love going to Fenway Park, Manhattan clam chowder is some sort of sick joke and Tom Brady is […]

Indirect Kick: College hockey realignment is too little, too late

Indirect Kick: College hockey realignment is too little, too late

College sports are slowly becoming more and more disorganized. Teams are changing conferences every year, while other schools are petitioning to join conferences that they have no business being a part of at all. For instance, Boise State University was looking to join the Big East in 2013. And yes, Boise is in Idaho. Why the Big East makes sense? […]

Fish and Chipps: Finding your voice

Fish and Chipps: Finding your voice

I was 17 and sitting in a movie theater in Gahanna, Ohio when I discovered my voice. It was a Saturday night, and I was watching a mediocre movie with a friend when I thought to myself, “I should start a blog.” I’m not sure why it hit me then, but it just did. I knew at that exact moment […]

Sports Comedy Corner: The official guide to catching foul balls

You ever catch a foul ball? The thrill can only be compared to winning the lottery, or the birth of your first child. There are thousands of fans at the ballpark and you’re the lucky one with a ball off the bat. Actually, you may not be so lucky. You may just be the most prepared. If you want to […]

Going For Two: Jordan Spieth’s Masters miss rare, unexpected

Jordan Spieth entered the Masters Tournament last Thursday in a bit of a funk. The defending champion had been jetting off all over the world in the months preluding the crown jewel of golf’s major championships, and many pundits thought it would not fare the 22 year old well. However, the Dallas native returned to his 2015 form and rattled […]

PALLENIK: NBA riddled with parity we can’t see

PALLENIK: NBA riddled with parity we can’t see

72-9. How sweet it sounds. The Golden State Warriors will have the chance to break the NBA record for wins in a season Wednesday when they take on the Memphis Grizzlies at the vaunted Oracle Arena in San Francisco. Regardless of your allegiances or biases, this feat, if achieved, would be nearly unprecedented among the United States’ major professional sports […]

Indirect Kick: Soccer should have four substitutes

Indirect Kick: Soccer should have four substitutes

Soccer players are some of the most well-conditioned athletes in all of sports. Running almost nonstop for 90 minutes, footballers can cover upward of 9 1/2 miles each time they take to the field. That is ridiculous. Even some of the fastest athletes, such as wide receivers and cornerbacks in American football, barely cover 1 1/2 miles across four quarters, according to […]

Sports Comedy Corner: How to fix Opening Day

Opening Day is one of the most anticipated days of the year. It’s supposed to mark the start of spring, warm weather, barbecues and a clean slate for your baseball team. But this year’s opening week was a mess. You had night games Sunday, multiple rainouts Monday and controversial game-ending calls Tuesday. Opening Day should be simple. All teams play […]
