NFL Draft Snapshot: Quarterbacks

In an effort to get through all of the positions before the draft, I’ll be just shortly naming some of the prospects to watch in this draft class, as well as some potential sleepers and maybe busts.

United ready to move on, Houston in town

The Houston Dynamo were once known for their prowess on stopping teams and keeping them off the board, that wasn’t the case last season. The Dynamo surrendered a franchise high 58 goals, they struggled mightily to find consistency on that end of the field as they also had 10 shutouts last season as well. Their new coach may have gotten them back to their once proud ways as Houston has…

Ovechkin,Backstrom get Capitals back on track

The Washington Capitals looked like a much different team than in Game 1, they were much more active and aggressive as they tried to even the first round series against the New York Islanders. After skating past, over, and around the Capitals in Game 1, the Islanders got off to another fast start. Only, they wouldn’t be able to sustain it as they fell to Washington 4-3. Keep in mind,…

Baltimore Orioles off to .500 start

Last season, the Baltimore Orioles won the American League East. They did so with solid pitching and timely hitting. The closest team to them in the final standings was the New York Yankees, who finished 12 games behind the O’s. Baltimore ultimately were swept by the Kansas City Royals in the ALCS. This season, Baltimore hasn’t started off so hot. The Orioles are sitting at .500 with a 4-4 record….

Celtics, Bruins are perfect examples of sports irony

In high school, my English teachers used to rant that students didn’t understand the element of irony. We were barred from highlighting it in our essays and the adults cringed when they heard us use it incorrectly. After following the 2014-15 Celtics and Bruins seasons, I now clearly understand an ironic turn of events. You almost have to laugh when you see how it’s all turned out, whether it’s a…
