Figure skater — and (now) figure skating commentator extraordinaire — Johnny Weir is in the news, after it was revealed he intends to reconcile with husband Victor Voronov. In case you’re not tracking the personal lives of former figure skaters (BECAUSE I AM), the two called off their divorce over the weekend, citing two stipulations presented by Voronov: an apology from Weir...

SOCHI SCENE: 'Humor is healthy': Kerrigan

Twenty years later, Nancy Kerrigan tries to chuckle when she recounts the plots against her as the 1994 Lillehammer Games approached. She does that, she says, because she has to. Kerrigan suffered a badly bruised right knee when an associated of Tonya Harding's ex-husband whacked her with a baton after a practice during the national championships. She was able to recover in...

Johnny Weir’s wardrobe is a giant “F U” to Russia’s stance on homosexuality

Figure skater Johnny Weir has been doing a great job with commentary thus far through the winter games in Sochi. He’s also been putting on quite the fashion show. He’s been using his wardrobe choices to make a statement about Russia’s anti-gay policies that have been in recent news, and boy has he gone all out.  Some of these get-ups are as flamboyant as they come, and would...

2010 champion Yuna Kim taking Olympics like a job

Don't judge Yuna Kim's workouts by her body language. Nothing could be more misleading. The defending champion figure skater from South Korea is approaching the Sochi Olympics like a job. So when she appears to be uninterested in practice, well, forget about it. Kim gets it done. There's little or no flair and she expresses virtually no emotion. Kim seems to be a totally...

Jason Brown's free skate routine at U.S. Championships was amazing

If you’ve ever doubted that the idea of being “in the zone” has its place in every sport, stop whatever you’re doing and watch this video of figure skater Jason Brown and his routine from this weekend’s 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. You don’t have to watch the entire routine if figure skating isn’t your “thing,” but this video jumped from 33,000+ views...

The Bay Area is also known for its historic sports franchises; from the Say Hey Kid Willie Mays and the San Francisco Giants to the Mad Bomber Daryle Lamonica and the Oakland Raiders. I’m sure back in the good old days there...

Dallas Cowboys Position Preview: Running Back

This is the third post in my ongoing series reviewing the Dallas Cowboy’s roster position by position. Might as well just call this a position preview of DeMarco Murray and his unheralded, unproven backups, but that’s neither here nor there. Evaluating last year’s ground game as a whole is pretty laughable. As I’ve said many times, there’s a reason Romo had to chunk it...
