The. Best. Year. Ever. The Golden State Warriors NBA team is all the rage these days. For years they were a championship afterthought. Last year, Golden State won the title, and now they just completed the best regular season of all time. They eclipsed Michael Jordan’s 1996 Bulls team by winning 73 games in one […]

Gilgal: New Beginning
The Blessings of Failure It’s no secret I’m a KC Royals fan. Some of my earliest sports memories go back to the 1980 World Series between the Royals and Philadelphia Phillies. The entire decade of the 80’s was a high for a Royals fan – the peak being the 1985 World Series Champions. Royals fans […]
