Time to open up the notebook as we approach the second week of the NCAA Tournament. Quite a few items to get to...
Sporting News picks up a story from sister publication Sports Business Journal by John Ourand and David Broughton on the NHL's TV ratings since the lockout. Suffice to say like the NBA a year ago, ratings both locally and nationally have gone up significantly from the previous season. And Chicago has seen a huge ratings bump thanks to its early regulation unbeaten streak.
Speaking of the Sporting News, Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead reports that about a dozen writers and editors were fired on Wednesday including some high profile reporters. Here's hoping they all find work soon. I hate to see people lose their jobs.

US Weekly decided — wisely, I might add — to plaster Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods all over the cover of the periodical’s latest issue. Woods and Vonn, who awkwardly made their relationship public last week, have stressed that they crave privacy as the two pursue their budding romance, so I’m sure US Weekly will respect their wishes after this issue. On the other hand, maybe...
Some people are up in arms over Nike seemingly suggesting in their latest ad that Tiger Woods getting back to his winning ways somehow erases his much publicized off-course misdeeds. Of course, that’s only subject to interpretation, but we all know how Nike rolls. Provocative ads are nothing new to the shoemaker.
Tiger Woods, the newly-crowned No. 1 golfer in the world, reportedly sent a crude text to Rory McIlroy, the No. 2 golfer in the world.
According to Houston Chronicle columnist Jerome Solomon, Woods gave McIlroy some pointed advice as McIlroy prepares for the Shell Houston Open this week.
Tiger Woods finally caught back up with his talent this week, and his destiny is within spitting distance once again. His long climb back to the world No. 1 ranking after career and life stumbles is, quite frankly, inspiring.
He lost his putting stroke, his wife and his reputation along the way. He had caddie issues, deep regret and unimaginable shame. He had critics and haters...
When marketing is less about truth and more about endorsing one view of reality, Nike often comes out the winner.
The company’s latest ad pushes the preferred narrative once again, no matter how wrong or how rankling it is.
Nike capitalized this week on Tiger Woods‘ latest run, which includes two PGA Tour victories and regaining the world No. 1 ranking heading into the Master’s...
Tim McCarver will be retiring after the 2013 season. Good riddance.
In honor of our second anniversary, Mish put this together.
The post Tim McCarver to retire appeared first on Obstructed View.
Regaining the No. 1 spot in the world is something that has been a long time coming for Tiger Woods.At times it appeared as if it was never going to happen again, but after falling down pretty fart professionally and personally it now appears that ole Eldrick might have it back together again.
And he's okay with losing it too (the No. 1 ranking that is).
Ben and Sam talk about Tim McCarver`s impending retirement and share their thoughts on broadcasting, then discuss whether changes in players` routines have reduced the importance of clubhouse chemistry.
With the news breaking Wednesday that Tim McCarver is retiring from broadcasting at the end of 2013, there has been a lot of discussion as to just who will be paired with Joe Buck for the 2014 season and beyond. Buck and McCarver have been teaming since 1996, and while they're well past their expiration date in many eyes, they've been the top broadcast duo in the sport for...
FOX baseball analyst Tim McCarver announced earlier this week this season would be his last. He’s 72 and he obviously feels like taking a step back.
After a 21-year career in Major League Baseball (1959-1980 with St. Louis and Philadelphia twice, along with Boston and Montreal) – plus 33 years in the booth beginning in 1980 – one can’t blame him.
McCarver, when he played...
