HUMOR--  If you think Nostradamus is the backup center for the Oklahoma City Thunder, you are a tad off. He is the all-knowing "Oz" who stayed behind the curtains of 1555 when he wrote a few quatrains to predict the centuries ahead.   Lately, there is circulating along the ever-reliable internet, a story that all-knowing Nostradamus wrote a prediction for Sunday’s Celtics/Heat playoff game, or is that a prediction for the Los Angeles Angels? It’s not easy to tell among the mixed metaphors of clairvoyance.   The Wikileaked rhyming couplets, purported to be from Nostradamus, refer to skullduggery on the patchwork ...

Boston Red Sox Horror Story Lessens, Thanks to Stephen King!

By William Russo On April - 29 - 2011
The Boston Red Sox seem to be living in a Stephen King novel. Since Mr. Stephen King is a frequent visitor to Friendly Fenway, we must ask if he has some plan for a book on the horrors of the 2011 Red Sox season. King threw out the first ball during the opening game of the 2004 season. Documented forever in the movie Fever Pitch, the team won it all.Stephen King needs to start warming up again to change Sox fortune. The first month of 2011 season looks like Carrie’s Prom Night, and the April carnage will soon end. The ...
When I first saw that the Oakland Raiders joined in a partnership with the California Lottery, I thought it was a clever idea. After all, the lottery is a game and NFL football is a popular sport. Later, I found that many NFL teams are joining in partnership’s with their state’s lottery. For example, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cleveland Browns  and the Houston Texans have their name attached to lottery games. The Oakland Raiders launched their scratch ticket in Sept. 2010. If you don’t win the cash, you can win other things like tickets. Taking a chance on the lottery ...
HUMOR-- When the two former Cleveland Cavaliers meet on the basketball court, fans may hold their collective breath.   What will happen? Though we would enjoy seeing them bump chests, or exchange kisses of fists, we suspect that the mob buffers on the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat shall take charge.   We also suspect Delonte West and LeBron James will not be going out for dinner to have a Chinese meal after the game.   These men are professionals, and a change of team jerseys will be as normal as changing their protective leg hose to prevent those pesky ...
In order to rise up, a team or person has to fall down. Getting up again is the joy in the life of some folks. On this Sunday, millions are remembering the event that opened the door for all who believe to rise above circumstances often imposed on us by our own volition, to chose good or the negation of good. As I tell my students, if there is a proposition p, then there is always a ~p, which stands for the negation of p.  There are many retired NFL players who have taken hold of their retirement years and have risen above some very powerful ...

Talking Trash in Sports: From Kevin Garnett to Muhammad Ali

By William Russo On April - 23 - 2011
Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics usually is accused of the worst level of trash talking. Controversy engulfed him earlier this year when he allegedly called Charlie Villanueva of the Detroit Pistons, a player with Alopecia, a hair loss disorder, as being or seeming to be “a cancer patient” or simply being a “cancer.” No one is sure which claim is accurate, except the parties involved. It was merely trash talk, according to fans. At a recent game, Kobe Bryant let forth a cobra's spray of invective at a referee, costing him a large fine from the NBA. Fans using ...
Fans would like to see Paul Pierce and Ray Allen appear in their own TV series, some kind of thriller with action, violence, suspense and a happy ending. One idea calls for Ray Allen and Paul Pierce to do an updated version of the classic teenage detective series, The Hardy Boys. This time the new TV series would feature weekly adventures in the NBA. The Finals premise is still up in the air. Paul and Ray would portray teenage brothers into health and fitness who grow up to become professional basketball players. They live in the fictional town of Hub ...
The Boston Red Sox are selling the seats you sat in as a kid, but couldn't fit into today—even if Jenny Craig was your date. The purchase has been made possible by the gutting of what used to be the cheap seats at Fenway in Boston. You're now able buy and carry off those grandstand seats as your all-season lawn chairs, for what will cost you the price of bleacher seats at one game. Yes, folks, those seats are going for $795. It is a bargain.You can now sit in front of your HDTV in 3D and watch the Red ...

Carl Crawford: The New Roman Mejias of the Boston Red Sox

By William Russo On April - 20 - 2011
The Boston Red Sox had few fans nearly 50 years ago. Fewer admit being fans back in 1963 and 1964. Few fans of today were alive back then. Those seasons were the Dark Ages of Red Sox lore.  Many have removed the memory of the last time, with great flourish and optimism, the Red Sox brain-trust under Dick O’Connell and owner Tom Yawkey decided to pay big bucks and land one of the premiere players of the National League. At the time, the newspapers were full of reports about the star of the Houston .45s where he was called “The Home Run ...
“Wow…I think all of us here feel like we are Virginia Tech today. But, wait, there’s a football game.” – Chris Fowler The sea of maroon and orange undulated in rhythm to the sound of guitar, bass and drums emanating from the speakers. Exit light, enter night and then entered the Hokies. The camera panned over of the joyous crowd and told the story of Virginia Tech football. In and of itself, this spectacular entrance into Lane Stadium is par for the course on a Saturday in Blacksburg, Va. But Sept. 1, 2007 was not an ordinary day for the school and ...
