The last time the Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series gas prices were around $0.86 a gallon. That means I could have driven from my small town in Ohio to Three Rivers Stadium, and back, for the same amount of cash one beer and a hot dog will […]
Rick Suter—the guy watching Tom Hanks finally(!) get out of that damn airport terminal—is a Los Angeles-based writer and other stuff that doesn’t sound as cool but pays the rent. An entertaining sort of guy...even though that claim is being written by Rick in the third person. He has written columns for Bleacher Report, Faniq.com and Fox Sports (when their blog-o-shpere existed!). He has co-written a book—Rick Dempsey's Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball. The guy loves pizza.
There is a Foot Locker commercial, too...somewhere.

PART II CHAPTER 6: You Can’t Escape that Scent. Day 2 of my adventure at Indian Wells began with a random degree of separation, I guess. While I sat on the balcony of my hotel room, my mind conjured up this: I’ve heard that people look at […]
Every so often, here and there, it’s good to get off the couch and travel around this place called Earth. The places, the people, Ramada Inn’s breakfast spread…the “fruit” Danish…there is an interesting story waiting to happen every step of the way. However, because there are bills, kids, […]
So, there she was…jogging to the dugout in between innings, her hair curly and blonde and pinned nicely underneath her ball cap. She was a ballplayer. It was baseball. She had missed the goddamn cutoff man woman. Tom Hanks could not believe it. This fundamental lapse on the […]
This just in… A completely unreliable and fictitious source – the same ones used by major news groups – has confirmed that Mitt Romney’s recent sappy-sad attitude occurred over the loss of his favorite hair gel. Recent-speculation linked his demeanor to tax issues, twitter-smack and Tom Brady’s damaged […]
It was a typical spring day for two MAC opponents back in 2002: Drunk people, more drunk people and college kids studying the Media Guide to get info about the opposing pitcher’s mother. It was college baseball at its best. During one inning, a Kent St. pitcher threw […]
While the sports world digests all the chips, dips and pigskin punch – fizzed for your pleasure – all the experts have dissected and re-dissected what is the new pastime of ‘Merica….The NFL. The season is young, bright and full of questions; Who is the best? Is it […]
It’s no secret – Bobby Valentine wants to crawl through the microphone and punch you in the mouth. You dig? While the Boston Red Sox slide into complete mediocrity for the season, their embattled coach has been taking the heat from the sports world, and with good reason […]
