Miami Heat has a good chance of winning third straight NBA championship

Around this time of the year, many sports fans are occupied by so many things like the final month of the college football regular season, the second half of the 2013 NFL season, and the start of college baseketball. Despite all those things going on, there's been one thing that has gotten some of the fans attention and that is the return of the NBA. The 2013 NBA...

Weekly McAlester News-Capital Roundup

Time marches on, and no matter how much we beat our oars against the tide (or however "The Great Gatsby" ends), we can't stop the seasons. The long warm days of summer give way to the long cold nights of winter, and with it... Sorry, no idea why I got all poetic. My bowling league didn't meet Monday, so I haven't done much besides watching "Doctor Who...

Give credit to the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets

Before the 2013 National Football League (NFL) season began, I felt the New York Jets would be the worst team in the league. I went as far as to say there was a possibility the Jets could go 0-16 for the season. They drafted quarterback Geno Smith in the second round of last April's NFL Draft, but they still didn't know what to do with incumbent QB Mark Sanchez. The offense...

What Are The Ravens Doing?

After the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl last season, it was apparent the roster would have to make major changes going forward. For the last decade, the Ravens' identity was based on strong defense and running the football. After quarterback Joe Flacco threw 11 touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's playoff run, the decision was made to build the team around...

For College Athletes, a Scholarship Just Isn't Enough

by Ryan Clarke This morning on SportsCenter: Johnny Football, Johnny Manziel, last year's Heisman winner, that college kid who likes to party and just so happens to sign autographs for cash! (Allegedly, but probably) That sentence wasn't actually uttered by ESPN's finest, but it still carries a lot of weight regarding a big issue in sports today: whether or not college...

Forgotten players: A tribute to John Tudor

While growing up in the 1960s and coming of age during the 1970s, it seemed the collective conscience about various baseball players, not just Hall of Famers, was long-lived and extensive.  Ironically, with ESPN and other 24/7 digital sports media coverage, it seems this has diminished.  A longtime friend who is a news reporter attributed this phenomena to the fact that in our...

Tonight's Preview

The Flyers coming off their 1-0 win over the New Jersey Devils are looking to continue their momentum into PNC Arena as they take on the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes are riding a five game LOSING streak and hope to snap that tonight against an up and mostly down Flyers team. The Hurricanes haven't had the goal support their expected from Alexander Semin and Eric Staal...

Weekly McAlester News-Capital Roundup

The other day my editor asked me if I knew what channel on which an OU football game was being broadcasted. I didn't and said as much, leading to a lighthearted jab at my abilities as a sports writer that I'm certain was meant entirely in jest. But jest or no, it led me to an interesting realization: I've really lost all taste for college football. Several reasons have...

Joseph Fafinski's Full Court Heave: October 31, 2013

Well, Halloween brought us a doubleheader to remember. I'm glad I watched it. Consider that my lonely, alternative way to celebrate the big holiday. MVP: Chris Paul, PG, Clippers BULLS 82, Knicks 81 Derrick Rose's return to the United Center may have not been exactly pretty in a 7-for-23 showing but he came through when it mattered most. He scored 18 and led Chicago to...

The Full Court Heave: October 30, 2013

Hey all, Welcome back to the Full Court Press. Starting today, I will be writing daily synopses, entitled the Full Court Heave, to get you all caught up on the best of the best in the NBA. So get used to it. I'd like to thank NBA League Pass and caffeine for my ability to perform said task. Without you, I'd be lost and... forget it, let's just get to the good stuff...

Congratulations To The Boston Red Sox

On Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox became the champions of Major League Baseball (MLB) by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 of the World Series. The victory gave the Sox a 4-2 series win, and also clinched the franchise's third title in 10 seasons. That's not bad for a team who had not won a title since 1918 before finally breaking that drought in 2004. This...

Cowboys Have Much Bigger Problems Than Bryant's Tirade

Let's start with the facts. The Dallas Cowboys have a 4-4 record at the midway point of this National Football League (NFL) season. This puts them right on target for their third straight 8-8 campaign. The only difference is their record has them in first place in the surprisingly horrible NFC East division. Their latest loss was 31-30 at the hands of the Detroit Lions on Sunday...

Weekly McAlester News-Capital Roundup

Not every athlete is a loudmouth. Even in football, which at the professional level seems to produce more hotheads than any other sport, you'll find plenty of athletes whose default volume is considerably lower than 10 and who manage to play with confidence without it becoming actual cockiness. As a coach, those more soft-spoken players are the ideal, so long as a lack of volume...

Hail To The Chiefs? That's The Case So Far

Before of the start of the 2013 National Football League (NFL) season, a lot of people felt the Kansas City Chiefs would have a much better season than the 2-14 session they had a year ago. In an effort to shift things in the right direction, the Chiefs had a busy off-season where they had to change the culture and direction of the team. Those changes would come in places of leadership...

Hail to the Chief

  The Kansas City Chiefs are undefeated this season so they deserve I write about them this week. The Chiefs are at their best start since 2003 when they won their first nine games . This victory came despite blowing a 13-0 halftime lead in early AFC showdown between the teams surprising rebound after losing seasons. The Titans could not have been more in sync with the first...
