  • Pardon, your bias is showing

    I have a very serious bias in the NCAA tournament. It's called Virginia Commonwealth University. Or VCU for short. This year's Cinderella (though I'm biased against that term), the team people thought shouldn't be IN the tournament that is now a day away from playing Kansas for a spot in the Final Four. Which means the Rams are in the Elite Eight. Published March 26 2011

  • The Times jinx?

    We haven't even published a section yet -- look for the first one on Monday -- and we're already moving into Sports Illustrated territory when it comes to jinxes. Published March 19 2011

  • Sound without pictures

    It turns out surviving without television can be done quite nicely. Published March 17 2011

  • Selection Sunday

    Ain't technology grand? That was my thought late last night as I watched the end of the Virginia Tech-Florida State game. Not all that long ago, Florida State's celebration would have continued. The refs would have run off the court and the Hokies would have been very sad losers probably relegated to the National Invitation Tournament. Published March 12 2011

  • A 'dirty' goal

    Alexander Semin dirty? Really? I've heard Semin called all kinds of things, but never dirty. Come to find out, "dirty" is some youthful slang that means wicked sweet or beautiful or incredible or some such. Published March 7 2011

  • Coming home

    The Washington Times is bringing back its sports section and it has chosen not-so-little ol' me to be the editor. Published March 5 2011
