» Entertain us
       Americans have reduced everything, including sports, to an entertainment choice. We've forgotten how to become engaged in mind, body and spirit. And because of that we often are tempted to gloss over the uncomfortable, convicting parts of Scripture a... read more

» Not a Simple 'Yes' or 'No'
       As much as Mark McGwire's exclusion from the Baseball Hall of Fame says about him, it says a lot more about the voters and how they reflect the various sentiments of the general sporting public. There is a minority that supports McGwire's induction a... read more

» Win -- and Win Now
       David Cutcliffe had coached Ole Miss to a 10-3 season in 2003 and a Cotton Bowl victory on Jan. 2, 2004. Eleven months later, he was fired after a 4-7 season. In 2003, Mike Shula took over an Alabama program crippled by probation and led the Crimson ... read more

» Moral Implications of the MVP -- and Other Nonsense
       I admit, I was hacked off when Albert Pujols again got robbed of a National League MVP award. When the Phillies' Ryan Howard won the award recently, it marked the third time in Pujols' six-year career that he'd finished second in the balloting. The C... read more

» 1 is a Lonely, Elusive Number
       Across the country, fans, coaches, journalists and people looking for ways to make fun of America are preparing for the annual furor over a bunch of inscrutable numbers coughed out by some mysterious, heartless computer program designed by someone wh... read more

» Fear Not
       I imagine my athletic career, what there was of it, wasn't more successful because of one thing -- fear. That, and all I really had going for me was soft hands and the ability to take a fall without getting hurt. Heck, I'm still a bit scared of the b... read more

» Missing the Big Picture
       For most of his life, the big picture for Tiger Woods has been the No. 18. Yes, that's the number of holes in a golf round, but it's also the number of career majors won by Jack Nicklaus. It's the most all-time, and Tiger's highest professional goal ... read more

» Choose Your Treasure
       Do you remember how much a comic book mogul paid for Mark McGwire's 62nd home run ball? Do you recall how much Luis Gonzalez's discarded gum went for in an online auction? Do you have any idea how much retired athletes make signing thousands of autog... read more

» Unscripted
       Judging from the way the Major League playoffs are unfolding, it looks like Detroit is destined to win its first World Series since 1984. They're only three years removed from a 119-loss season, they've got a stable of hot young pitchers, they've got... read more

» The Point of Pain
       Sam Bowie. Grant Hill. Bo Jackson. Kerry Wood. What do these athletes have in common? Each had a promising career -- a Hall of Fame career, most likely -- cut short or crippled by injuries. Bowie's leg, Hill's ankles, Jackson's hip and Wood's arm are... read more

» Don't Be a Bust
       Chris Porter is the only athlete for whom I've broken the unspoken rule among sports journalists: Don't ask your subject for an autograph. It's unprofessional. Of course, I was in college at the time, working part-time at the local paper, so I wasn't... read more

» Losers
       I'm a loser. So are you. Really, we all are losers. We can't win. We can try, but when you look up at the scoreboard when it's all over, we haven't even covered the point spread. Those who think they've won are the biggest losers of all. This comes f... read more
