    Falling Stars

    ​The Dallas Stars cleared out their lockers yesterday. They long ago vacated our minds. Once upon a time Stars games were Dallas' see-and-be-scene. The hockey team won. The bold and beautiful watched. Even as recently as two springs ago we were staying up late and digging in hard for Dallas' ... More >>

    This Just In: Hockey is - Surprisingly - Still Alive

    Nothing says hockey like ... hotties?​Coulda swore the National Hockey League never returned from its 2005 lockout. No, wait, don't I sorta remember a hip little hiccup back in 2008?

    Dallas' Fantasy Roster

    No. 12 in your football program ... No. 12 on our fantasy roster.​When I say No. 22, who comes to mind? Do you immediately think of the Dallas Cowboys' all-time best runner? Or their all-time best rusher? Or perhaps instead the second-leading all-time scorer in the history of the Dallas Mav ... More >>

    The Dallas Stars: Rest In Pieces

    Give the Dallas Stars credit for being spunky and resilient and stubbornly fun to watch. But the season's over, right? To me it ended Saturday in San Jose. Not just with the 5-2 loss to the Sharks, but more so with another major injury. This one to Brad Richards, who broke his left hand while hurryi ... More >>
