    ​Carrollton's Kelly Dearmore emailed me with a simple request: I wanna write for Sportatorium. Being that he's a free-lance writer that has covered concerts for the Observer, he hates the New York Yankees and he loves him some tennis in general and one of my fave sporting events -- the ...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the Greatest Shot in the History of Tennis

    Not really a local, Dallas-y angle here. Other than the fact that I know you guys appreciate sports greatness when you see it. And since this moment happened in the U.S. Open tennis semifinals while y'all were probably still high-fiving Cowboys 34, Bucs 21, perhaps you didn't see it.

    The Top 10 Hottest Female Athletes in the History of Ever

    She'll be in town this weekend. Plan accordingly.

    Advantage, Mrs. Modano

    I choose to believe, er, fantasize, that she wears this under her tennis skirt. But that's just me. So I got this friend who, like me, plays competitive tennis.

    Ya know what Richie's doing tomorrow? Getting tennis lessons from this woman. He calls it "working." Whatever eases his guilty conscience...

    Owens' Sausage

    This picture was taken yesterday, when Jerry Jones tried to take back Terrell Owens' jersey. Sorry. That's just wishful thinking. I watched as late as I could, but it was exhausting and I was exhausted: Some time around 1:30 this morning, Andre Agassi won his first-round match at the U.S. Open, and ... More >>
