If you wondered why Kansas City Royals fans were booing New York Yankees All-Star Robinson Cano last night and also on Monday night during the Home Run Derby, it was because he seemingly lied.
Most commentators, writers, etc., failed to mention that fact when they derided the Kansas City fans for booing. The booing was merciless and constant… Continue reading
Musings about the world of sports…
Contracts, new jobs, difficult situations, working behind the scenes, slander, forgiveness.
Some of that sounds like what people deal with on a regular basis, but those things were evident in the world of sports this past week… Continue reading
* On Sunday, we saw where some zany fan breached “security” at the U.S. Open as they presented Webb Simpson the trophy (read a great feature on Webb Simpson by Sports Spectrum writer Stephen Copeland).
