ND coach: Griner “like a guy playing with women”

After losing the women’s basketball national championship to Baylor Tuesday night, Notre Dame women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw had an interesting compliment (I think it’s a compliment) for Baylor star Brittney Griner. “She’s one of a kind.  She’s, uh, she’s like a guy playing with women.”  Now that may not seem inflammatory, but the internet ...

Nine year olds brawl after hockey game in Kazakhstan

I know two things about Kazakhstan: it’s over by Russia and Borat is from there. I can add a third thing to my list: nine year old kids will brawl in pure mayhem for about 20 seconds, but when grown-ups start yelling at them, they’ll pick up their toys and shape up. I won’t pretend […]

Lancaster Barnstormers’ Butch Hobson gets tossed, autographs first base

Now Jim Leyland’s circus act from Monday night makes sense.  He was trying to out-do Lancaster Barnstormers’ manager Butch Hobson over the weekend.  Reacting to Gilberto Mejia getting called out on a close play at first base, Hobson made it his job to reward a lucky, but confused fan.  The Barnstormers play in the independent […]

Luke Scott hits home run…and pulls his hamstring

Home run trots are the best.  It’s a player’s chance for the spotlight and attention of 30,000 screaming fans to be on him (unless you play for the Marlins).  It’s his moment in the sun.  Enjoy it.  Just don’t hurt yourself.  Wait, what?  Hurt myself jogging around the bases?  Are you serious?  Quite serious.  Ask […]
