    Celebrating the Long and "Pretty Impressive" Career of Texas Legend Nancy Lieberman

    Via.​It was quite the big deal back in '80, when the Dallas Diamonds of the fledgling Women's Professional Basketball League signed Old Dominion star and Olympic silver-medalist Nancy Lieberman to her first pro contract. I have a hazy memory of sitting among a few packed houses at Moody Coliseum, ... More >>

    Advertising Patches on Major-League Sports Unis? Count On it, Says Mark Cuban.

    ​It's been a question since forever: When oh when will the National Basketball Association or National Football Leaguer NFL start selling ad space on their team unis? Because, c'mon, the Euros do it and make millions. The WNBA does it. Some Major League Soccer teams do it. Why not everyone else? T ... More >>

    Welcome to the Day After March 31

    ​*Ron Washington's first and only experience with cocaine came at age 57? Of course I believe him. Why wouldn't I? *Okay, I admit it. I secretly, desperately wish I wrote for the Dallas Morning News and talked for 1310 AM The Ticket and admit that my jealously bleeds through into my sub- ... More >>

    Giggle. Giggle. Guffaw. Snot Out My Nose. Laughter. Giggle.

    A little vamping while I toodle down to San Antonio if you don't mind. Usually I reserve my Video of the Week until Friday, but this one couldn't wait. In last Saturday's WNBA All-Star - wait, it gets funnier - Sylvia Fowles wanted to dunk. So the players cleared a lane. The refs let ... More >>

    Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Might Michael Irvin's days at ESPN Radio be numbered?

    Richie Whitt: Unplugged, Unmasked and Universally Apologetic

    This is by far the most difficult post I've ever written. But it's time. I can continue this charade no longer. Over the past 11 months on this blog I've spewed forth a plethora of radical opinions, most of which this morning I'd like to officially denounce. I admit, most of them didn ... More >>

    Title Nein!

    I play sports because I love them. But I watch sports because I love to see done what I can't do. I watch Tiger Woods because I can't hit a 7-iron 210 yards. I watch Andy Roddick because I can't hit a serve 149 mph. I watch Kobe Bryant because I can't dunk. I read ESPN The Magazine's Rick Reill ... More >>

    A Whoozie to the Whatsis?

    Till there's fresh meat, courtesy tonight's Mavs-Hornet's Game 2 tipoff set for 6 p.m. , plenty of folks are still gnawing on Saturday night's leftovers. The question remains, apparently: Should Dirk Nowitzki have socked David West, after the Hornet stung Dirk with a love tap, or did he do the right ... More >>
