The Sports Edge - Early NBA thoughts

My favorite time to watch the NBA is the beginning of the season, say before the thirty or thirty-five game mark. It's the most intriguing to me because no one really knows anything yet. People just think they know things.

The Sports Edge Exceeding Standards

Last Saturday, the season ended for the University of Maine football team with a disappointing 24-21 loss at home to the New Hampshire Wildcats. The game marked the 14th time in 15 meetings that the Cats have won the rivalry game, offering the Bears only a fleeting glance at the elusive Brice-Cowell Musket as they raised it aloft in celebration.

The Sports Edge Reality > Fantasy

I don't know how to pose this to people, so I'm just going to lay it out there - I'm pretty sure that playing fantasy sports have been ruining my experience as a sports fan.

The Sports Edge Farewell to the 2016 Sox

Farewell to the 2016 Boston Red Sox, a team that, in the never-to-be-forgotten words of former Vikings coach Dennis Green, were who we thought they were.

The Sports Edge - In praise of Papi

What's your Big Papi moment?

It seems like every Red Sox fan has one and that's because the story of David Ortiz and his impact on his team and adopted hometown can't be measured simply in numbers, even though those numbers are remarkable.

The Sports Edge Different players, different rules

I had a hard time watching the NFL'sThursdaynight opener.

Not just because they puked so much pre-kickoff pat-themselves-on-the-back pageantry on their fresh-from-the-box cleats (although that certainly didn't help). No, it was the sad, simple fact that the referees have taken on one of the worst habits of NBA officials - and it's impacting the game just as severely.

The Sports Edge #Hunters

The #Hunters hashtag was adopted not long after Joe Harasymiak was named as the head coach of University of Maine Black Bear football, becoming the youngest Division I coach in the country at age 29. It was clear from day one that the former defensive coordinator was going to bring the aggressive, confident approach that has been a hallmark of the 'Black Hole' defense to the entire team.

The Sports Edge The most wonderful time

The recent cool, damp weekend was a friendly reminder that the dog days of summer will soon be making way for fall and everything that goes with that in Maine. Some tend to view the autumn as a harbinger of what follows; I prefer to take a deep breath of that chilly morning air and celebrate what I think of as the best our state has to offer.

The Sports Edge - Waning Moments

It's too easy to take potshots at this year's incarnation of the Olympics Games. The Zika, the air and water pollution, the body parts washing up on shore - the punchlines are there to be had for even the worst late-night staff writer. And I have long held the opinion that the Olympics are the longest running and most boring reality television series in the history.
