  • Mike's Minute

    The other day, one of the College World Series games took 4 hours and 39 minutes to play. 
    There are a couple of factors that most people wanted to blame; one being the fact that the coach calls all of the pitches. The other factor is the time between pitches. 
    Major League baseball has the two mentioned problems and more with the Tampa Bay Rays finding another way to make the game slower.

  • Sports and the climate change

    Sporting events were originally designed  for the enjoyment of the player and the spectator.
    All sports were supposed to be like T-Ball. Everyone gets to play and run around without a care in the world and in the end, fun was had by all. 
    I am not referring to the everyone-gets-a-trophy crowd either. In my world, playing the game with friends is trophy enough. 
    Sports today is dog eat dog from Little League until late in life.
