No Wonder White Sox

posted by xscot mcknight

It is no wonder the White Sox walked away with the American League Championship Series: they played, as the game is meant to be played, like a National League team. They moved runners over, they played for runs and not […]

Lake Wobegon’s Vikings

posted by xscot mcknight

That football game between the Bears and the Minnesota Vikings, a true purple team… how do you describe what is going on with the Vikings, both on and off the field? (I’d rather they wear advertisements.) Like Saul, they began […]

The Amish and Old order Mennonites are known for their simple clothing and their simple homes and their simple life-style. Professional athletes need to learn from them. Why? I saw it again last weekend when John Daly was battling Tiger […]
