I don't make it out to the ballpark very often. I watch plenty, I listen plenty, and of course I write about it plenty. But Sunday, August 10 was different; our next edition of The Sports Post's Sundays at the Ballpark series was destined to be special—or at least that's what I told myself one week prior upon learning that Clayton Kershaw would be pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers...

Nelson gaining confidence, adding spark to rotation

MILWAUKEE -- Losers of 10 of their last 11 games at the time, the Milwaukee Brewers were in need of a jolt of energy, some sort of a shake up to try and turn things around just prior to the All-Star break.

Jimmy Cracked Corn, Insert Team He’s Facing

Now that I'm married Jimmy Carter's line, "I've looked on a lot of women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times." Really stands out to me. I don't necessarily want to think about Jimmy Carter in lust, or even contemplating lust. The thing he doesn't say is if he wasn't married, he'd be lusting too.
