Blame Cannada

Dream team?

Team USA announced its men’s basketball roster for the upcoming summer games in Rio this week, and after I stopped laughing, I figured I would share some thoughts.

Before I proceed with this column, however, you should know that I can’t be very objective about this topic (or any topic, now that I’m thinking about it).

Full circle

Most people won’t remember a regular season basketball game they attended 13 years ago, but after what LeBron James accomplished Sunday night, I couldn’t help but reminisce.

In fact, I remember that day quite well.

Lost

It’s the worst feeling in the world.

Your stomach drops to the floor. Your heart starts beating a mile a minute. The room begins to spin.

You slip into a deep, dark state of depression and anxiety.

All you can do is wait for the phone to ring.

Seriously, you need that phone to ring…because you’ve lost it.

Concussions

It’s a topic football can’t escape…and it’s not going away any time soon.

Concussions.

On Monday afternoon, coaches in Greenville County were given instruction on how to deal with and prevent concussions through a program provided by USA Football.

Warrior fatigue

Here we are again on the eve of another Warriors/Cavs NBA final.

There’s no question we’re about to watch the two best teams play for a championship, but talking heads would have you believe it’s Golden State’s series to lose.

Not handy

People who have known me for years wouldn’t make the mistake of asking me to anything handy.

Well, my wife does, but she doesn’t really ask. She tells me to do handy stuff—then fusses at me for messing it up. I believe the word for this is “marriage.”

Bogey golf

I love to golf, but I’m terrible.”

This is the warning I give anytime someone asks me to go play a round.

It’s a completely serious warning, too. I couldn’t be worse at this sport. It’s one of the most enjoyable warm weather activities, but one of the most difficult to master.

Not going back

I feel as though I need to follow up on last week’s column by giving you an update on where I am as a sports fan.

I am not currently a sports fan.

That’s the update.

In fact, I have renounced all sports on several occasions since last Monday. Some hurts just go too deep. Some wounds simply won’t heal.
