    Entourage: Fitting Finale or Farewell Flop?

    ​I dunno, last Sunday night's finale to HBO's Entourage was a little too tidy for me. Vince finally got the girl. Eric was back with Sloan. Ari was reconciling with Mrs. Ari. Drama's show was a go and even Turtle was a trim, fit millionaire. What the what?!  I guess I prefer my bre ... More >>

    Sad Sports Sunday For Your Good Ol' Red, White and Boo

    ​Woke up rooting for America Sunday morning. Phil Mickelson made a charge, Dustin Johnson was in the hunt and it looked like a U.S. golfer would steal the Claret Jug at the British Open. I was rooting for America after lunch, too. Abby Wambach scored late and it looked like the U.S. would ... More >>

    Why We Love Sports in America: 2011

    ​Since I'm out on vacation next week let me get to this Fourth of July tradition a little early: Happy Birthday, America. Our country turns the ripe old age of 235 on Monday.

    Our Next American Sports Idol is ...

    ​Beats me. Monday I watched both Williams sisters lose at Wimbledon, a week after Andy Roddick bowed out. It leaves as the only American quarterfinalist gentlemen's 10th seed Mardy Fish, a 29-year-old doubles specialist who will hardly threatening Rafael Nadal's throne. We heard a b ... More >>

    ​Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Best news for your Texas Rangers is that they're not only successful, but extremely popular.

    Why We Love Sports in America

Between burgers and beers and bikinis, I tried to spend some time remembering how friggin' fortunate we are to ha ... More >>

    Hey, I Found a Reason to Go to the HD Byron Nelson Classic

    ​No Tiger. No problem. Phil Mickelson won't be at today's opening round of the HD Byron Nelson Classic out in Las Colinas. Neither will Tiger Woods or past champs like Sergio Garcia or Adam Scott or, really, anybody you've ever heard of outside Vijay Singh and maybe defending champ Rory Sabba ... More >>

    Hey, HP Byron Nelson Classic, I Got An Idea

    ​With Phil Mickelson out and Tiger Woods out and golf pretty much dead, this year's HP Byron Nelson Classic in Irving May 20-23 will be much ado about nothing The Pavilion. What's new, right? That could change, if the dudes in red pants would think outside their yellow-roped bo ... More >>

    Chalk One Up for Karma: Tiger Woods Overshadowed by Phil-Good Story

      Karma 1, Tiger Woods 0. See, that's what I'm talking about. Why give Tiger an exaggerated ovation when you can cheer for someone who overcomes adversity that isn't self-inflicted? Someone who doesn't made repititive, horrible, corrupt choices. Someone whose wife and mother are dealing w ... More >>

    The World's Top 10 Left-Handed Athletes

    Right is wrong and left is ... right? Seems to be. It's not exactly a bass-ackward revolution, but left-handers are doing okay for themselves in sports these days. Or are they? The idea struck me last week when I saw highlights of college quarterbacks Josh Heupel and Matt Leinart winning BCS Nationa ... More >>

    From Elite to Embarrassing

    Only a few guys on the planet had a worse Father's Day than Phil Mickelson, and they were all Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs left for Miami a week ago with a 2-0 NBA Finals lead and parade plans tucked in their duffle bags. They'll return home today 48 minutes from one of sports' all-time choke jobs and ...
