Olympics Loss, Unsportsmanlike Sniping Spell Epic Fail for Hope Solo, Women’s Soccer Equal Pay Demand

With all the grace and class of a Tinder profile, Hope Solo once again proved that if she’s the voice, face, and heart of the United States Women’s National Soccer team, then they are the quintessential Ugly Americans. It was as colossal a disaster as Women’s soccer could possibly absorb: a perfect storm of athletic defeat, ghastly sportsmanship, and the...

As Nike Golf Closes, Phil Mushnick Slams Them as a Grisly Shuck

If you want the truth about what’s happening in the darker corners of the sports world, Phil Mushnick of the New York Post should be a daily stop.

Sally Jenkins Wins Gold Medal for Body Slamming Corrupt Olympics Cesspool

We’ve said it from day one – golf didn’t need to be in Olympics. This was just a money grab for the networks, the IOC, and the PGA and European Tours.

I’m all for quirky golf courses, but there’s “Quirky Interesting” and then there’s “Quirky Weird,” and although it’s a fine a line between the two, you know the difference when you see it.
