GSP is no athlete of the year

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

I have to take serious exception to the Rogers Sportsnet poll that they are running to decide the Canadian athlete of the year. In case you haven’t seen it, here is a link.
Canadian Athlete of the Year
Now, I have no problem with Sidney Crosby making the finals. He scored the gold medal winning goal at [...]

Seriously Alberto Contador?

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

Seriously Alberto Contador? Seriously?
It is finally time to completely give up on cycling forever. For the umpteenth time, the guy who won the Tour de France has failed a doping test.
How many times are we going to be put through this mess? A guy gets caught by the sport’s increasingly improved tests, he makes up [...]

The longest match ever

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

After seeing what happened with the Wimbledon final last year between Federer and Roddick and now this year’s epic of Isner-Mahut, maybe it is time for the English club to change their tiebreak rule to the current one.
Seriously, matches that span three days and last 11 hours and five minutes – the fifth set alone [...]

Floyd Landis: What a dope

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

So apparently it’s news now that a guy who was caught cheating has admitted that he’s a cheater? Well, not really, but now he’s hurling accusations around the already seedy world of professional cycling.
What he’s done, at this time is just plain dumb. Does he really care so little about damaging the sport that made [...]

The Amazing Bolt

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

How great is Usain Bolt? Quite simply he is the best sprinter ever and yesterday he was at it again. Just days after smashing his year-old record for the 100-metre sprint, he smashed his year-old record in the 200-metre dash. The weird part: He beat both World Records by .11 seconds.
Not to say that he [...]

An absolute monster

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

While we’re sure to see home monster homers tonight in the Home Run Derby, there was only one monster in the ring for UFC 100’s main event. That monster was Brock Lesnar and to say that he dominated Frank Mir from the beginning of the match until Lesnar was pulled off a defenseless opponent might [...]

A weekend of showdowns

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized ran several promos on their site this weekend about how this Saturday was “Showdown Saturday.” While one or two of the events didn’t particularly live up to a headliner’s billing, they did get it right for the most part.
On top of the NHL and NBA playoffs – which are moving along quite nicely I [...]

The best week in sports?

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

When you start to think about all the great times of the year that sports has, is there any better than this week — the first week of April? You have two sports wrapping up their regular season — the NBA and NHL — with great races determining playoff seeds, division battles and even lottery [...]
