So sports fans, you have two whole nights off from the four biggest North American sports league  – two of the three days in your average calendar year. It used to only be two, but baseball decided to extend their break by a day.
Quick Tangent: That was always one of my favourite trivia questions. ‘What [...]

Comparing the Liberals’ demise to sports

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball, Basketball, Football, Golf, Ice Hockey

After watching the Canadian federal Liberal party get absolutely crushed during Monday’s election, I tried to think of a sports comparison of what just happened. Well, there’re a few different routes you could go with this one.
 
Michael Ignatieff took over a party that was doing fine and led the, straight into the gutter. Sounds like [...]

Where is the Masters?

by Dan Bilicki In: Golf

What’s up with the lack of early coverage for the Masters? For some reason, it’s impossible to find any sort of TV coverage of the early tee times and of the front nine.

Tiger’s back on the prowl

by Dan Bilicki In: Golf

So Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are now divorced. Yawn. Wake up me up when the news comes out about how much money she got for a few years by his philandering side.
This is one of the richest athletes in the history of sports we’re talking about here. And, as far as any report I’ve [...]

Just what golf needed … Not!

by Dan Bilicki In: Golf

This British Open was precisely what golf needed, and I say that with as much sarcasm as I could possible infuse in that statement.
In the most prestigious tournament that there is, a person that even die-hard fans had probably not even heard of won – and held a nice lead from early on too. Louis [...]

Day of drama

by Dan Bilicki In: Golf, Ice Hockey

There was no shortage of compelling stories on Sunday in the world of sports. Phil Mickelson made his charge at the Masters, firing a five-under 67, to win the biggest tournament of them all. He beat Lee Westwood by three strokes to take him his third green jacket.
He even made one ballsy shot from directly [...]
