PLAYERS: Barack Obama
As a Cubs fan, you don’t need to remind me that 1908 was a long time ago. That year is so far off, it is more of a concept than a concrete entity. It’s almost impossible to grasp just how remarkably different the world was the last time the Cubs won the World Series. We all know the basic details — there’s been two World Wars, a Cold War, cars have become commonplace and someone invented radio, TV, the internet, Snuggies, chemical and atomic warfare. Yet none of that puts the Cubs futility into context as well as taking a look at the electoral map from the 1908 presidential election, which occurred one month after they swept the Tigers for back-to-back world titles to start a still unfulfilled dynasty. Virtually everything about our nation’s population has changed. In this year’s election, Florida’s 29 electoral votes have been hotly contested by Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

It's Time for the Ole Miss Administration to Start Cracking Skulls

Last night, a small group of Ole Miss students decided to protest the re-election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, presumably because they are college students and have nothing but free time.  Eventually, the crowd got bigger and bigger, as more bored students wanted to see what was going on, and people started yelling at one another in the way only politics makes...

Pippen compares Obama to Jordan

Barack Obama and Michael Jordan may have more in common than just Chicago, according to Scottie Pippen. On Tuesday we reported that Obama spent part of his day eschewing the stress of election day by playing some basketball with Pippen in a pick-up game. By the end of the night, of course, stress wasn't part of the equation, as Obama won re-election handily (in the electoral...

With Leather’s Watch This: Not The Election

I don’t mean to imply that we couldn’t watch any sports last night. For instance, I watched the Orlando Magic at the Chicago Bulls last night. But since Barack Obama had to be such a winner and whatever last night, the Bulls had to ruin that game for me, too. I mean, Joakim Noah was knocking down jumpers and Carlos Boozer looked like he had an actual pulse.My point is that everyone...
