Sports Bio

I am a vivid fan of baseball, (In fact I dream of playing a baseball game almost every night). I was born in Nicaragua and when I was a kid I got tickets to the national Championship, (Nicaragua's World Series) game 7, behind home plate no less!! The Nicaraguan Government-owned baseball team, the "Dantos" (their Boston Red Sox), and "Leon" (MY New York Yankees), a team named after the former capital of Nicaragua, engaged into an 18-inning marathon that ended in the Dantos defeating my beloved Leon 4-3. A memory that will forever live in me, (I only hoped my Leon would have won).
The team I follow so passionately is the NY Yankees. And yes, the past two seasons have been painful, (especially their demise against the Boston Red Sox last season), and yes, in case you're wondering, I did cry like a little girl then, and this season. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful site for sports fans.
God Bless you.

I'm vivid UCLA fan, but I have found it difficult to not root for USC lately, especially for its three big stars. The FS/USC game was awesome and entertaining.

Air Force Football Team sucks because they have no black kids

Another (in)politically-correct issue. Whatever happened to Freedom of Speech?

Say It Ain't So, Jackie

I too wonder, when will this politically-correct and racially -driven mentality stop? I understand about the Government's attempt to equal the opportunity level for minorities and other disadvantaged groups, but must we have the same approach even in sports? Come on people, so the Astros are the first baseball team in the World Series without a black player. We all know this is not representative of a systematic problem in baseball. Perhaps Houston's black players, (and other players), in the farm system were not ready to be in the big leagues. Baseball is about selling and displaying the best product regardless of race or origin. Just take a look at the NBA or NFL.
