Time to permanently close the sexist & dangerous “Barstool Sports”

We are also well past time for any reputable organization, in this case SiriusXM, to cut all ties with an organization that has women fearful of being sexually assaulted.   Dave [...]

Always Be Closing: Sink every shot like Dwyane Wade

Having been a sportscaster for many years, I've come across my share of athletes, coaches, front office types, owners and everything on down to the people who sweep the ice and mop the floors who personify grace and dignity.

It rots the brain like sugar rots the teeth", she would remind me. This from the wise matriarch who was reading ingredient labels on [...]

Always Be Closing: Master the Hidden “I”‘s in “Team”

"There is no I in team". Despite those who swear by it, there is no evidence Green Bay Packers Head Coach Vince Lombardi was first to use the phrase. He certainly may have been a devotee of the phrase and it's meaning, and he might have even coined it somewhere down the line, but [...]
