Good day for Olympic wrestling, but it remains absurd that wrestling has to fight for inclusion in the first place. We’re talking wrestling, one of the originals, not equestrian dressage…

LeBron James can’t say of flopping, “Any way you can get an advantage over the opponent to help your team win, so be it”, then be surprised when he fouls out of a game…

Best of three now between the Pacers and Heat. Statistics tell us the team winning game 5 wins the series 83% of the time. The Heat will win game 5…

We asked our Murph & Andy Show listeners who would win a game of one-on-one if LeBron played Jordan, each at the peak of his powers. 94% voted for Jordan. I agree. LeBron may have as much or more talent, but Jordan would be willing to die on the court to win…

Ten members of congress asked Daniel Snyder to change the name “Redskins”. My thoughts: 1) Congress has more important things to worry about. 2) Snyder will not change the name. 3) Most fans do not want the name changed. 4) No football fan uses the word Redskin as a racial epithet. 5) Those same people would not walk up to a Native American stranger and call him or her a “redskin”, therefore the nickname should probably be changed.

Unlike the Rutgers basketball coach, Zubin actually graduated from Rutgers…

The Blackhawks should have won game 7 vs the Red Wings in regulation, but a bad call forced the most dramatic moment in sport: overtime. Blackhawks advance in thrilling 2-1 fashion over the Red Wings…

The Indianapolis 500 finishing under caution is so foolish and short-sighted, it defies logic. Imagine any other sport nearing the most exciting part of the competition, and freezing the field, and not allowing any further scoring. Fix this before you get to Iowa Speedway, Indy Car…

You ever look at the Jack Trice Stadium turf, and think, “Wow. Nice field.”? Well, the Sports Turf Managers Association did. It names JTS the 2012 College Football Field of the Year. Congrats to Tim Van Loo and staff…

Mariano Rivera blew a save without recording an out for the first time in his career. Even when failing, Rivera reveals his greatness…

Nike cuts ties with Livestrong. So much for Lance Armstrong’s trail of lies and serial bullying not hurting the cancer awareness foundation…

I hope this severe weather pauses enough to give the Principal Charity Classic a chance. It’s a great event…
