  The rest of the story:   Chapter 1   Chapter 2 Chapter 3   It took a while, but Seth finally achieved a tenuous Internet connection from the crappy wireless system that the motel provided. He also called his secretary Melissa with a list of items he wanted looked into. She was to call him back as soon as she got results.   The more he looked into Damon Ryche’s past, the more concerned he became.   He came in the league as an unsigned free agent. A talented minor leaguer who finally put it all together after three years . His first year with the Portland Nighthawks, he was injured for ...
Cassius Clay released I am the Greatest on Columbia records in 1963. Billed as a comedy album, the record features the future Muhammad Ali rumbling his way through bluster heavy proto-rap, poetic verses, fight music, standup monologues and even Ben E. King’s “Stand by Me,” all to the delight of a live audience who cheer, chuckle and ballyhoo behind Clay’s boisterous horn tooting. Apparently, Ali opened Pandora’s box set. Athletes of all stripes have since felt the need to rock the casbah—I've stacked up a six pack of questionable releases that managed to find their way out of the locker ...

At a mutual friend’s wedding in 2004, TSN’s Jennifer Hedger and Sportsnet’s Sean McCormick found their playful eyes locked in an epic game of “No, you blink first.” Six months later, he proposed to her on a Mayan Riviera holiday—and in 2006 they returned to Mexico to get married. Here’s what these cross-channel lovers have to say about each other. On Sliding Headfirst Into Their Relationship Jen says: It was a total physical attraction. I thought Sean was really hot, and then when I found out he was single, I decided to put my fishing line out and see if ...

Is Canada Still A Bronze Medal Nation?

"And Jacques Jock finishes a respectable eighth place … a valiant effort and Jock's time is a new personal best. He's got to be pleased about this!" a CBC sportscaster exclaims. We hear this time and time again during the Olympics. The celebration of mediocre results is as Canadian as beaver pelts. Canucks have a longstanding reputation for pulling off gutsy performances that fall just short of the real glory. Unfortunately the reputation is deserved. While Barrick and Goldcorp mine tons of the precious metal, Canada's top athletes seem predisposed toward the lower steps on the podium. Canada is the only country not ...

This story first ran in 2 Magazine. I sifted through thousands of hours of post-game locker-room tape to bring you 11 of the top clichés used by athletes. And believe us when we say we gave it 110 percent—Okay, there’s one out of the way! • “We’ve got another one in the win column, and that’s all that matters.” • “We’re just going to take it one game at a time.” • “They really brought their 'A-game' tonight.” • “I’m the last one to make excuses.” • “I want to thank God for this victory.” • “We know what we gotta do; we just gotta go out ...

As we close in on Father's Day this June, many fathers and sons will be enjoying the day by taking in the grand ole' game of baseball.  A Sunday afternoon of fun in the sun. The smell of hot dogs, popcorn, and roasted peanuts fill the air. A soda or beer to quench your thirst—all while hoping that your day will be made complete with your favorite team winning in dramatic fashion.  As a child, I lost my mother at the age of eight, so my father had to teach me many things on his own.  The one thing that he taught me and which bonded ...
