Last year during his rookie season, New York Giants safety Will Hill was suspended 4 games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, which Hill claimed was due to taking the drug Adderall (the most common excuse of 2013)
During his 2013 season debut last Thursday, Yankees captain Derek Jeter seemed to be playing well as the designated hitter, until he was suddenly pulled for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 8th inning. After the game, we learned that Jeter felt something during his final at-bat and took a precautionary MRI, which he acted very nonchalant about during his post-game press conference.
Back in 1993, the first recipient of the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage during the ESPY Awards was former North Carolina State men's basketball coach Jim Valvano. During his speech, which is still viewed as one of the best acceptance speeches at any American awards show, Valvano announced the start of a new organization to raise funds for cancer research called The V Foundation
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been very blunt and honest with my opinions about Dwight Howard - he's self-centered, rude, arrogant and not a guy I would want on my basketball team. And then last night, I happened to turn on the 20th Anniversary of the ESPY Awards for the only part I honestly care about: the host's opening monologue
When the 2013-14 men's college basketball begins for the new-look Siena Saints, head coach Jimmy Patsos will be looking at a difficult slate of non-conference games for November and December, an 11-game schedule that Patsos openly believes is one of the most difficult in program history
After graduating during the 2011-2012 men's basketball season, then-UAlbany shooting guard Logan Aronhalt was aware he still had one year of eligibility remaining, giving him a choice about whether or not he wanted to use it. Aronhalt went on to use his final year of eligibility under Mark Turgeon at the University of Maryland, and now it looks like the move paid off.
Over the last few weeks, more and more current NFL players have become open about their opinions regarding the arrest of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who has been charged with the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. However, let this be an example of what not to do as a form of "public protest."
It's a decision that Capital Region basketball fans have been waiting to hear for the last couple of months, and according to Mark Singelais of the Times Union, we finally have the answer: former Bishop Maginn standout Taran Buie will not be admitted to Siena College.
Over the last few years, the main focus of people against the use of performance-enhancing drugs or banned substances has been Major League Baseball and the National Football League. But this past weekend, we were re-introduced to one of the sports that used to be all the rage about performance-enhancing drugs back in the late 1980's and early 1990's - track and field.
Over the last year and a half of his MLB career, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has improved by leaps and bounds to a point of insanity. While having been playing in the Majors since 2008, last season was only Davis' 2nd season of playing in more than 80 games and having more than 300 at-bats.
Several media outlets have reported in the last 24 hours that on Tuesday morning, Dwight Howard was eating at a midtown Houston restaurant called The Breakfast Klub. The newest "citizen" of Houston was having what many consider the most important meal of the day, as well as conducting a brief interview with a local TV station. What makes this different from any other breakfast is that apparently, Howard decided to pick up the tab of every patron that was also having breakfast in the establishment.
As I have gone through early adulthood and now sit at 25 years old, I have discovered a number of things: my regretful inability to grow meaningful facial hair, my reestablished love for the NHL and my tremendous disdain for New York State politicians (just read my recent articles about Mixed Martial Arts as a reference point). However, the greatest of these observations is the one I have decided to address in this article: my growing disinterest for watching Major League Baseball games on television.
