I was a little down last week when “The Last Dance” ended. I learned a few things this past week without more Michael Jordan to look forward to. I thought I’d like the Lance Armstrong documentary, which is sort of the MJ replacement on ESPN. Well, it was on at the same time, but that’s…Continue Reading »

The Last Dance

I have to admit that I’m a little sad today. And it’s not what you think. For the first time in a while, I’m not going to talk about the dreaded “C” word today. Instead, I want to reflect on two topics in my sports world that made me feel happy and, at the same…Continue Reading »

Normally, in the beginning of May, I’d be in a really good sports mood. We’d have NBA playoffs in the second round, and same with the NHL.

Gary’s Hoops Scoops: Bad “Bad Boys”

By Gary Dickman. I have to admit that I’m surprised there’s so much going on in sports, considering that there’s really nothing going on in sports.

Gary’s Hoops Scoops: L.A. Story

Before Sunday, the only dancing I really watched was “Dancing with the stars.” But now, like most of you, I’m sure, I loved “The Last Dance,” the 10-part documentary on ESPN about the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls and a guy named Mike.
