Portland Timbers Switch Up Lineup, Smash Seattle

It is exceedingly rare for an MLS team to lose a game 5-0 and still end the week all smiles. And yet, that is exactly what the Portland Timbers did after trouncing a depleted Seattle Sounders team 4-1 Sunday night at Providence Park. The win snapped a four-match winless streak for the Timbers against their northern rivals in MLS regular season clashes and capped off a roller-coaster...

The Beauty Of Mount Freaking Hood

What is the force that gravitates us to a mountain? Why, I’ll place my bet that a prominent landmark is interpreted as prominence, and we love prominence! Like humans to prestige. Mt. Hood’s eminence spreads in many directions. With a grandeur of size that’ll inform you of a visiting Texan when you overhear “It’s bigger’n Dallas!” (At least give them credit if they...

2015 NBA First Round Draft Diary

Since I had today off from work, I had the bright idea to … work.

I started at around two o’clock, and I wrote these entries at the exact time I list. We all know the results of the draft by now; what follows is my account of the moves as they...

Oregon’s NBA Connection

Home is warm and sweet like a cup of hot chocolate on Hawthorne. Sweet and warm like a pot of comfort tea in the Pearl. Home in the NBA used to mean wherever you got drafted. That’s why it’s called the home court. Then LeBron left Cleveland. And returned. His action changed the notion of home for players who need the comfort of familiar surroundings to succeed. These are grown...

The Mysterious Disappearance Of Robinson Cano

It doesn’t take a stat geek to come to the conclusion that second baseman Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners is underperforming from what was expected when the Mariners signed him to a ten-year, $240 million deal. Year one of his tenure in the Emerald City saw a .314/.382/.454 slash line, numbers consistent with his career in BA and OBP, but with a drop in slugging. The 14 HRs...

Portland Thorns Struggle To Tally A Win

74 Days. That’s how long it’s been since the Portland Thorns secured a victory. The women are 2-3-4 on the regular season. With 11 games are left on the books, not all hope is lost but the Thorns will need to get things going. The most glaring difficulty for the team is offensive production. While 11 goals this season is about middle of the pack in the NWSL, only five of those...

Drafting A NBA Ready Player Must Be Priority One For The Portland Trail Blazers

With the breaking news of Nicolas Batum being shipped to Charlotte last night, the city of Portland wakes up on Draft Day in a kind of stupor.  On one hand, everything has changed. But on the other, the plan stays largely the same regardless of the new fate of perhaps Portland’s most polarizing player. Batum was the subject of trade rumors for the last few weeks, so it shouldn’t...

Should The Portland Trail Blazers Consider Selecting A Shooting Guard In 2015 NBA Draft?

As the NBA Draft nears, experts are constantly updating their projected selections by teams looking for the next big star. The Portland Trail Blazers hold the number 23 overall pick, and as opined earlier this month, if the team has the opportunity to draft Louisville power forward Montrezl Harrell, they should jump at the chance.

Six Questions For The Seattle Seahawks

In this final stage of the NFL offseason, we find ourselves put on pause. It’s annoying. With the Seattle Seahawks’ players and coaches scattered across the world, getting some R ‘n’ R in before returning for training camp on July 31, the Seahawks still have some vital unanswered questions. It would be preferable to have those questions answered with actual football: practice...

Links Of Wrath – My Day At The U.S. Open

Image – About as close as I could get to Rory that day. To be honest, I’ve never so much as sat through a major on television, let alone attended one. Unsure of what to expect given the overwhelmingly negative attitude about Chambers Bay by any media outlet not carrying it on their channel, I begrudgingly made my way to the last day of the U.S. Open (also known as the only place...

Demetrious Johnson Needs To Return To Bantamweight

Washington native Demetrious Johnson hasn’t lost in four years, and has also won seven straight title fights during this time period. Although he is largely dominating his division, he’s done little to win over the casual MMA viewer. If the UFC were the NBA, “Mighty Mouse” would draw an all-too appropriate comparison to the San Antonio Spurs. He’s a skilled, destructive...
