A 1:1 With WIBF World Champion, Oregonian Molly McConnell

When I started exploring this topic I knew I had to reach out to the boxers if I wanted the real story from inside. Of course as with any writer in order to do that, you have to knock on doors and hope for one to open up. If the door you knocked opens, the feeling of fortune embraces you right away. But when the door opens and you get champion Molly McConnell, well that’s just...

5 Boxing retirements that need to happen in 2014

Hanging up the gloves is always a touchy subject in boxing, but even so every year sees a number of high profile retirements. This year has already seen more than most, with the likes of Erik Morales, Yuri Foreman and Vitali Klitschko bidding adieu. And even so, there should have been even more retirements. David Haye unofficially retired late last year only to (shockingly) spend...

2014 U.S. Open: Less Water, More Fun

I think this week’s U.S. Open serves as a both a lesson given and a lesson learned for the USGA. The term ‘embrace the brown’, the vaunted organization’s term for the game’s contribution to greener planet (is that some sort of an oxymoron?), has been received loud and clear. Limiting watering systems to a single file line down the middle of the fairways is both brilliant...
