The stadium mystique

I recently had to do a story on the renovated Molson Stadium, so I went to check it out one day. I was moved to recollection as I wandered through the concourses. “Recollection” is an inadequate word; rather, doors in my subconscious opened, emitting rich nostalgic air. I let it out, breathed, and fell under… Keep Reading

Bird courses, Boise State, and the BCS

We all know them. Some of us might even be them. Those people who brag about the kind of GPA that you could only dream of. These aren’t necessarily the best and the brightest, but they’re the people who have found perfectly legitimate ways to use the system to their advantage. Maybe they’ve padded their… Keep Reading

NBA Preview – Central Division

Chicago Bulls: In the NBA’s most competitive division, Chicago should win and fill the void left by Lebron James’ departure from Cleveland. When Carlos Boozer returns from injury, he will team with Joakim Noah to make one of the best frontcourts in the league. Together, they will fight for every rebound and second-chance point.

NBA Preview – Atlantic Division

Boston Celtics: They looked like world-beaters for the first 12 minutes of the season, holding the Heat to a paltry nine points (prorated, that’d be 36 a game, a point more than Kobe averaged in 05-06). Then they were underwhelming against the Knicks and the Cavs. This team is too old to bring maximum intensity… Keep Reading

Miami Heat: What hasn’t already been said about this team?

Questions of whose team this is and who will take the last shot in… Keep Reading

NBA Preview – Southwest Division

Dallas Mavericks: The Mavericks have three bench players who could start on any other team: Jason Terry, Tyson Chandler, and Shawn Marion. Point guard Jason Kidd continues to defy age and Dirk Nowitzki remains one of the most consistent power forwards of the decade. If the Mavs want to make any noise in the playoffs,… Keep Reading

NBA Preview – Northwest Division

Portland Trail Blazers: Portland is due for a breakout season. Despite back-to-back 50 win seasons the Blazers have yet to join the Western Conference elite. This season they will make the jump if they can avoid the injuries that plagued them last season. All-NBA guard Brandon Roy averaged 21.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.7 assists… Keep Reading

NBA Preview – Pacific Division

Los Angeles Lakers: The Lakers held their championship ring ceremony before last Tuesday’s home opener and look poised for another championship run. Phil Jackson’s squad is virtually intact from last season, and they have added Steve Blake at guard and the scrappy, defensive-specialist Matt Barnes at forward. The two will eat up minutes and allow… Keep Reading
