Association Misses The Mark On Racism

What’s been in the water of the Football Association and A-League’s offices recently? Some of the decisions seen in recent weeks have been bewildering at best. In particular, the stance taken and penalties handed down over Dean Bouzanis’ racist slur over the weekend was, in my opinion, not even close to being sufficient. While I…

Exploring the Orioles Roster as February Arrives

A lot has changed in the world since the Orioles’ 2016 season cruelly ended at the hands of the Blue Jays last October – most notably, seeing a new POTUS elected which has filled our Twitter feeds day, after day, after day.

Learnings Must Come From Ventura’s Death

Like many baseball fans around the globe this morning, I found myself reading about the premature death of another young star of the game.

Who Should Start the NBA All-Star Game? (East)

Now Don’t Be Sad, ‘Cause Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

On a warm summer’s morning, the last day of July 1977, American musician Meat Loaf released one of his signature songs, power ballad Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad. From that day on, the song, penned by brilliant lyricist Jim Steinman, would forever be recalled when two-thirds of any given situation came to fruition. As Steinman…
