  • McNair isn't only puzzle piece that has to fit

    The Ravens report to training camp today with fairly high expectations for a team that went 6-10 in 2005. They think they should make the playoffs, not that they're going to shout that just yet. Enough prognosticators support the idea that it would seem to have merit, or at least, shouldn't be immediately...

  • Let Guillen be Guillen

    Whenever Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen gets in trouble for being brutally honest or for shooting off his mouth before he thinks about what he is saying, I think of the preview I witnessed almost a decade ago.

  • Game over for concept of sports dynasties

    This isn't a good weekend for American sports patriots. There's no place to invest cheers. At the World Cup, which concludes with tomorrow's final between Italy and France, Team USA was knocked out without winning a game. At Wimbledon, which also ends tomorrow with the men's final, every American...
