Where Sports and Faith Connect.

Monthly Archives: March 2013

When I read about Robert Guerrero getting arrested, all sorts of emotions welled up—at first. Then I read what happened and I thought, “No big deal.” Yes, No. Big. Deal. We have a logic fail by anyone who thinks otherwise, including people like ESPN’s Dan Rafael who, unfortunately, have essentially equated it with crimes like domestic violence...

Let's go back to 1988. To the suburban community of Lake Bluff, Illinois, home of Lake Forest High School. Rob Pelinka is nearing the end of an outstanding prep basketball career. As a senior, the 6-foot, 6-inch guard is averaging 30 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game. Recruiters from around the country are knocking on his door, offering their championship promises on a daily basis. Coaches from Arizona, Stanford, Illinois, and Michigan are regulars at the Pelinka residence. That's not to mention the letters of interest from perennial basketball powerhouses North Carolina and Duke...

The NCAA Tournament is one of my favorite events in sports. The reason for that is that college basketball always seems to exemplify the cliché that anything can happen. This year, that cliché has stuck throughout the entire season with top-five teams losing left and right. The field was as wide open as ever, and March Madness has definitely lived up to its namesake, especially in one section of the United States...

Phil Robertson called signals, darted, dove and threw. He wasn’t trying to call or chase ducks, he was quarterbacking Louisiana Tech’s football team against Alabama in 1966. It’s an interesting clip on YouTube that shows Robertson’s high skill level at quarterback...

Andy Finch and Tommy Czeschin stood in Cathedral Square in Panama City, Panama. The flowing skirts of the traditional tamborito dancers swirled and spun...

Duck Dynasty - How It Almost Never Happened

Phil sits in Willie’s office at the Duck Commander warehouse. He’s telling a story, like Phil usually does. Being with him in person is kind of surreal, like you’re having coffee with a cartoon. It looks like he came straight out of your television and sat in your living room—sunglasses resting on his head, camouflage bandana and pants, as if he’s been hunting all day, and a nest of a beard you could probably turn into a winter scarf...

If you could have stood in the locker room before the fight, you would have thought an army was about to charge into battle. The energy gave you chills. The noise made your head throb. As Robert Guerrero’s team, family and friends gathered around him, howling and chanting, Bob Santos stood quietly, questioning their naivety, nervously wondering if this would go down as the biggest mistake of Robert Guerrero’s career...
