Shut up already Charles Barkley

ESPN thoroughly disgusted me and betrayed every ordinary citizen ever burdened with any kind of addiction when they rolled out Charles barkley to offer “expert analysis” on, get this, he gambles too much money when he loses. Could someone point me to any poignant analysis in the disgraceful rant that followed? What exactly are we supposed to have learned...

Marcus Vick, former Virginia Tech football quarterback arrested on firearm charges

Last week, two ESPN radio jockeys were debating how embarasses the Vick family must be after Marcus stomped on an opposing players defensless calf with his cleated size 16. Vick was kicked off the football team, permanently dumped after the Gator Bowl. The ESPN apologists (all bow down to the Holy Church of the Professional Athlete), simpered that compared to Billy...

CONGRATULATIONS! – Lee Sossen and Michelle Ramoni and a Caddyshack moment

We interrupt this golf trip to offer hearty congratulations to two of the AWITP extended family. First, you read here about my buddy Lee Sossen who won the very first biatholon he entered back in May.
