One final thanks
By the time your eyes find this on the page or online I will have left Jamestown for good. Yes, my role in one of the most bizarre sports writing experiments ever undertaken at The Sun has officially come to a close. Over the past three years I did my part to showcase in this spot...

Opinion Corner: NDHSAA deserves praise
It's not often the North Dakota High School Activities Association earns praise. That's not to say it makes bad decisions; it just makes many unpopular ones. Often the most frustrating of the unpopular decisions is when an advisory committee recommends a change in its sport, and...

Opinion Corner: Bad press sells papers
Of all the lessons I've learned through the years is that people love to read negative stories. There is just one caveat: negative stories are awesome as long as it's not about you or your interest. The in phrase now is, "Whose ox is being gored?" Frequently this sentence or email...

Opinion Corner: Hall voters were correct
There seemed to be some angst Wednesday when the baseball writers voted to not elect anyone to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Why the unrest? I have no idea, but they made exactly the right call.

Opinion Corner: Let the season play out
As part of the cable TV programming package I'm breaking in, there was a free preview of the NFL's RedZone channel last Sunday. It's the channel that shows only touchdowns as best I can tell. It's the dream channel for the fantasy football pyscho we all know or the ADHD fan that...

Opinion Corner: NFL banks on QBs
Above-average quarterback play seemed to be the theme to last week's NFL games, and when I say above-average, I'm talking about the young quarterbacks who happened to fare well. Christian Ponder of the Minnesota Vikings and Blaine Gabbert of the Jacksonville Jaguars did pretty well,...

Opinion Corner: Analyzing Week 1
Coming into week 1, the headlines were dominated by Peyton Manning's Broncos debut, the number of starting rookies, and the impact of Sean Peyton's absence. Week 1 is now in the books, and the names that are on our minds are Kevin Ogletree, Alfred Morris, and Stephen Hill?

Opinion Corner: McIlroy making it happen
Four PGA Tour victories in a season. Believe it or not -- it isn't Tiger Woods boasting that accomplishment this time. Twenty-three-year-old Rory McIlroy established himself among golf's elite on Sunday when he fended off a number of other major winners at the BMW Championship to...

Opinion Corner: For Vikings any win is a good win
The Vikings 2012 season-opening win against the Jacksonville Jaguars was everything Vikings fans have come to expect, maybe except for the winning part, that is. Any true Vikings fan had to have had an uneasy feeling in the pit of their stomach when the Vikings went three-and-out...

Opinion Corner: Nationals facing dilemma
So picture this: Your team has the best record in the league. They're one of the odds-on favorites to win the championship. However, the general manager of that team is not thinking about, but rather has made up his mind with full certainty, to shut down the team's best player for...

Opinion Corner: Jimmie hoops will be just fine
It was hardly a month ago Matt Murken was sitting next to me here at the Sun offices. We were discussing the upcoming season, summer plans, his coaching staff -- shooting the breeze would be the technical term. About a month later, Murken is gone. Off to Minot to tackle the challenging...

Opinion Corner: Flicks for when the rain falls
No one likes rain delays and chances are there will be a few more before the season ends. Next time it starts coming down, do the next best thing to watching baseball, put in a movie about baseball. In no particular order here are this scribe's top 5 baseball movies of all time....

Opinion Corner: A's sweep makes statement
It is possible. For the first time since May of 2003, the New York Yankees were swept in a four-game set on Sunday. The culprits? Small-market Oakland and its heralded general manager Billy Beane, whose process of selecting players made the basis for the movie, "Moneyball." The...

Opinion Corner: Jimmies a good bargain
Even with a real spring, the college baseball and softball seasons go really quick. So fast in fact that today is the last chance to watch the Jimmie baseball and softball teams without having to shove several gallons of nearly $4.00 gas into the tank to do so. Both teams have back-to-back...

Opinion Corner: Stick to what you know
Accidentally the other day, I came across a non-sports person doing a feature on Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer. It was intended to be funny, it wasn't. I think the reporter thought he was clever, but failed miserably there, too. Moyer, of course, is the 49-year-old pitcher...
