The Tuesday Links Are Finally Here

I’m finally finished with the proposal and now I can move on to other stuff including the links. There’s been quite a flurry of trades in the last two hours in the NHL. The biggest surprise, the Montreal Canadiens sending goaltender Cristobal Huet to the Washington Capitals for a second round draft pick. Earlier in […]

Ways to Monitor the NHL Trading Deadline

I’m trying to finish this proposal, but if you’re at work and want to find out about the latest trades as the NHL Trading Deadline approaches, you can do it in several ways. First, is streaming TSN’s live all-day coverage and you can catch it here. Among TSN’s analysts are Mike Milbury, former Toronto […]

Tuesday Links Will Be Late

I’m working on a proposal that is way late, but has to get done today. I’ll put up the Tuesday links sometime in the afternoon.

Late Monday Night Update

Time to give you a few more links on this Monday night. First, Neil Best of Newsday tells us that the Arena Football League’s New York Dragons will have 1050 ESPN Radio as its flagship station this season. The Albany Times Union’s Pete Dougherty writes in his blog about the higher ratings NBC experienced for […]

Monday Evening Links

Let’s give you some more links this evening. First, Newsday’s Neil Best notes in his blog that the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship on NBC with Tiger Woods outpaced the NBA game on ABC with Shaquille O’Neal on Sunday. Neil reports that NBC has passed on the Boston Bruins-New York Rangers tilt for its NHL […]

Giving you a quick Monday update. Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch has his media winners and losers of the week and CNBC’s Darren Rovell is as one would expect, a winner.

It's the Monday Links

Back to work here and my internet is back up here so it’s nice to have right now. USA Today’s Michael McCarthy says ESPN’s Jim Rome is not a fan of the gallery at golf tournaments yelling “You Da Man!” or “Get in the hole!”. The New York Post’s Phil Mushnick says there’s a lot […]

It's a Sunday Morning Thing

Doing the links this morning on a Dell Dimension XPS T600 Pentium III computer with a dial-up connection from an office where I usually am not based. This is going to be interesting how long this will take. I’m starting at 10 a.m. so take a look at the timestamp below to see how long […]

Klitchko is beginning to land his jab with regularity….

In the second round of the so-far incredibly boring Klitschko-Ibragimov fight on HBO, play-by-play announcer Jim Lampley noted that Wladimir Klitschko was beginning to land his left jab with regularity. Two minutes later, boxing charlatan Max Kellerman said, “Klitschko is beginning to land his jab with regularity.” Thanks for the stellar analysis, Max. I hope […]

Oh, Great!

Just after I was going to write that this has been a tremendous night for sports (Tennessee-Memphis meeting in a #1 vs. #2 matchup on ESPN, the Klitchko-Ibragimov fight, the Joe Louis documentary, Hockey Night in Canada), I find out that boxing charlatan Max Kellerman will be ringside for the heavyweight unification fight on HBO. […]

Your Saturday Linkage

Before I begin, it’s nice to have some live sports this morning. While watching match play golf isn’t the most appealing thing in the world, it’s assuring to wake up and have the WGC Match Play Championships on the Golf Channel. I’m certainly enjoying having his on my TV this morning instead of the silly […]

Quick Friday Night Update

Giving you some links tonight before I check out some late night TV programming. The Sports Media Watch notes that the NBA All Star Game ratings dipped below a 4 for the first time ever. However, while the NBA All Stars did not get a great number of eyeballs, the newly named “Big Cactus” did […]
