Cry BlueThe Dodgers organization reached an all time low this week when owner Frank McCourt filed for bankruptcy protection. The case of the ugly divorce, over leveraged debt and just plain boneheaded management, the Dodgers are now in a very precarious position and one of the most storied franchises in baseball sits on the precipice of disaster. no comments

The CONCACAF Gold Cup is over and now the waiting begins.  Following Saturday’s loss to Mexico, we know no more about the US Men’s National Team than we did going into the tournament.  Still, everyone wants to draw conclusions.  But what inferences can be taken from a tournament where the team both underperformed and over performed as well?  What do we take from a tournament where Bob Bradley’s biggest risk paid off and blandest decisions did not?  We end up left with the same big question we had following the World Cup: to replace Bob Bradley, or not to replace him?

Dehler ParkIn the world of youth sports there is one constant, most of the jobs are done by those who are volunteers or who give up some portion of their own lives to benefit the program. From little league to scouting to Legion baseball programs. It is those who choose to give back that make the difference. The difference in the lives of young athletes and the difference in their own lives as well. In Montana, there is Legion baseball not high school baseball. Two former Billings Montana American Legion baseball players chose to give back to the teams and programs that helped shape their lives into and after high school. This is just a part of their stories. no comments

RehabIt looks like Terrelle Pryor is going to try to rehab his image with the help of retired NFL personnel exec Ken Herock. I don't know why he would bother. And not just Pryor, but in the American sports culture we live in today, there is no need for ANY athlete of ANY sport to worry about rehabbing their image - as long as they and the team they are on are winning. no comments

The Fort
For those of you who have not heard the news about the New England Revolution, I will not get into too much detail, instead I will point you over to The Drug is Football and The Bent Musket.  As a fan of the Revolution since their inception in 1996, the infuriation that I feel cannot be described in a few words.

While watching DC United play Real Salt Lake, Charlie Davies took a dive in the waning moments to pull out another penalty kick, which stole two points from RSL, and put Charlie Davies in the crosshairs of the soccer media.  After all, Charlie Davies is supposed to be an All-American hero, a regular Captain America, the striker to blaze trails into the 2014 World Cup, and here he was --once again-- resorting to the old Italian standby, the spectacular dive.  People went nuts.  Twitter exploded.  Bloggers attacked.  RSL players complained.  And everyone, except for Davies, are overreactionary morons.

Loss, what loss?
Looking back at the last year with the USMNT everything is A-okay!  The World Cup was a lot of fun. Who cares that the team went 1-2-1 in it? Because, as the new campaign began the Yanks were world-beaters!  Right? no comments

JordanKern3Another windy night at the ballpark but at least it's not raining....yet. The season has had a rough go with a lot of missed games due to all the rain and flooding in Montana this year. As many as 20 games missed by some teams so far this season. Of course, all that rain has made the field an absolutely emerald green of lushness in the hazy June evening sun. no comments

PryorLets all just face it, the golden boy, Terrelle Pryor, does not play college football anymore, but in all honesty he did live up to the hype. Haha, I do make myself laugh sometimes. I assume that anyone who has read something I have written on the subject of TP knows that I do not support him. My opinions on Terrelle Pryor are simple, his quarterbacking skills are average, the hype surrounding him was just that, hype, and he should have switched positions a long time ago. The guy lived the dream for three years in Columbus, Ohio. He had money, friends, and the worshiping fans know as Buckeyes. He made it onto every Heisman board for two of his three years for no reason other than he was 6 foot 6 and could run fast, but he still made it on the Heisman watch. All he had to do was keep up his ten or eleven win seasons and he would soon be off to the pros where he would make millions.

Aftermath from the tornado in Tuscaloosa

On Wednesday, April 27, the city of Tuscaloosa was devastated by an EF4 tornado. Over 200 people were killed and countless homes were damaged or destroyed. Now, one of the most sports-oriented cities in the country is looking for hope, and the University of Alabama Softball team is looking to provide the first dose of that.
