March Madness on South Hill

By | Mar 4, 2011

During the year and a half I’ve spent at Ithaca College so far, I’ve taken advantage of the fairly strong athletics program we have here by attending my fair share of sports events. Football, basketball, crew, soccer, diving: they’ve all been pretty fun to watch. But I have to admit I’m fairly excited about tonight’s…

No Deals

By | Mar 1, 2011

If you were following the NHL trading deadline yesterday, you A: are part of a relatively small niche group among sports fans and B: probably wound up disappointed. While 15 trades were announced on Deadline Day this year, the two biggest moves were the Edmonton Oilers trading forward Dustin Penner to the Los Angeles Kings…

Winter Sports on South Hill

By | Feb 27, 2011

As you probably noticed if your dorm’s not located under a rock, Ithaca College had a lot of snow Friday. So with about a month left before we can say farewell to winter for good, why not have a little fun with all the snow? I can think of a couple ways right off the…

The one that got away

By | Feb 24, 2011

I was walking out of my first class of the day today when I heard that the Utah Jazz had traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets for Devin Harris. I’m fairly sure it’s the first time I’d heard about a major sports trade from a normal person instead of checking ESPN or Sports…

Happy ‘Melo Day everyone! (short but sweet)

By | Feb 23, 2011

Carmelo Anthony is finally a New York Knick. Congratulations to Knicks fans, my condolences to Nuggets fans and as for everyone else, isn’t it great that this story is finally over? Can we all agree not to get into hysterics about Deron Williams? We can? Great. Let us never speak of this again.

Too many people

By | Feb 21, 2011

According to, the Sacramento Kings are seriously considering applying to be able to move to Anaheim, California next season because they haven’t been able to get a new arena built in Sacramento. Putting aside the fact that I don’t like it when sports teams move to begin with, I think this would be a…

Same old story

By | Feb 17, 2011

Every night before I go to bed, I like to look at all the recaps for the day’s basketball/football/baseball/hockey games on places like ESPN or Sports Illustrated. It’s surprisingly fun. You stay informed about what’s happening in sports, you get to keep track of milestones, upsets, injuries, down-to-the-wire thrillers, all the stuff that makes sports…

Can’t win for losing

By | Feb 14, 2011

If you turned on ESPN tonight, you caught a pretty good game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors. Both teams have extremely talented leading scorers in Kevin Durant and Monta Ellis and two of the NBA’s most exciting point guards in Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry. But, like LeBron James, I…

Blame it on the weather

By | Feb 14, 2011

I love sports media, really I do. According to Firefox, ESPN is No. 3 on my Most Visited Sites list and I’m actually a little surprised it’s that low. I buy Sports Illustrated whenever I can, I read the Buffalo News sports section even when I’m here in Ithaca, I check Yahoo Sports on a…

Party like it’s 1987

By | Feb 10, 2011

OK, maybe “party” isn’t exactly the right word but that’s how far back you have to go to find the last year American sports fans witnessed an NFL work stoppage AND someone other than Jerry Sloan coaching the Utah Jazz. But with the cancellation of talks between the NFL and the NFL Players Association this…

Farewell Andy Pettitte

By | Feb 9, 2011

As you’ve no doubt heard by now if you’re A: a baseball fan like me or B: a Yankees fan freaking out about the back end of their rotation this coming season, Andy Pettitte retired last week. It wasn’t all that surprising since Pettitte had been playing for the better part of 20 years and…

Worst game of all-time?

By | Feb 8, 2011

Just last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers set an all-time mark for futility in the NBA, losing their 25th game in a row. While it is absolutely astonishing that a professional sports franchise could lose that many games in a row, there is hope in the near future for the Cavs. If they lose their next…
