Anthony Hubbard, Boston Bruins, Golf Boys

The University of Iowa knows not everyone agrees with giving a basketball scholarship to convicted felon Anthony Hubbard. Iowa held a news conference Wednesday to allow reporters all the tough questions. I thought Hubbard handled it really well. He's 26, eight years past his guilty plea for robbery, and unlike many athletes who have criminal records, Hubbard actually paid a price for his big mistake; he served nearly four years in prison. Each person makes his own mind up whether Iowa should give Hubbard another chance---the Hawks wouldn't if they didn't desperately need an impact player---but I don't think Hubbard will burn Iowa, and he seems to realize both his mistakes, and the stakes...

Thank goodness the fans of Boston finally have a championship to cheer. It's been three long years. I'm not hating. I cheer the Boston teams in a nod to my Vermont birth and nostalgia for early childhood...

The Bruins complete the Mt. Rushmore of championships for Boston in a 10 year period. Stanley Cup, World Series, Super Bowl, NBA Finals. As the Iceborg pointed out, the Patriots have now had the longest drought in Boston. The Pats haven't won it all since 2005. I'm sure this breaks the heart of Vikings and Cubs fans...

If I've learned anything in hockey, it's this: the team with the best goalie usually wins...


As I was watching my sons' Little League games recently, I was reminded most local coaches give much of their time and provide terrific role models for fun and sportsmanship. We had two winners this season. The occasional overbearing knuckleheads we all hear about don't spoil it for everyone, and we can't let them...

Martensdale-St. Mary's won its 59th straight baseball game Wednesday night. That's crazy...

Enough with the Lebron bashing. And that from a guy who's done his share...

I think the "Golf Boys" viral video from four American PGA Tour stars is fantastic. I'm not sure John Bachman shares my enthusiasm, but John's old school with his respect and passion for golf...

Seriously Keith it's not about Boston teams it's about THE team. Fine, hate the Patriots or Celtics but the Bruins haven't won a cup since 1972. I have no time for people who hate teams because of the town their in, do you know how many people in Minnesota believe that hockey shouldn't exist south of the Diamond Jo Casino in Northwood?
