Igot an email from a dad of a girl I coached in basketball a few years back. I have to say that he came close to being the perfect sports parent. He would show up to the games, root for his daughter and her teammates, not say anything to or about the refs, and never forget that no matter how…

Because I am cursed with a pretty-good understanding of mathematics, I don’t gamble. I almost never have. I’ll bet on myself to make a free throw or win a tennis match, but gambling in a casino is a sucker’s bet. (Next time you feel like placing a bet in a huge, lavish casino, stop and try t…

Three odd things about me: I’ve never chewed gum (my Mom wouldn’t let me, so I never started); I’ve never tasted alcohol (I watched other people doing it while I was growing up, so I never started); and I’ve never bought a lottery ticket (I understand mathematics). However, I have been told …

In this time of pandemic and a self-imposed post-season ban (not to mention the still-detectable whiff of Major Disappointment at the Nico Mannion Season that landed with a thud), this year’s University of Arizona men’s basketball team is the least-talked-about Wildcat squad in nearly four d…

The age-old question is asked, “If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?” A fourth-grade teacher could probably burn an entire morning by posing that question and having his/her class debate it ad infinitum. (Scientifically, it would certainl…
