Vin Scully used to be (gasp!) a Giants fan!

Recent years have only increased the appreciation for legendary Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully, one of the few public figures the rest of the public hasn’t gone out of they way to tear down.

Pedro Martinez stays as sharp as he was on the mound for TBS

NEW YORK — There are few analysts in sports TV who draw a crowd of reporters just to ask them their thoughts. Charles Barkley is probably the king of this. Even though he gives his opinion on almost everything every week on television, writers will still sit down with him to find out what he […]

Big Ten Network looks to go national thanks to east coast expansion

One of the things I was most interested in when I talked to BTN President Mark Silverman on Wednesday was this: what were among the first things he did upon learning that Rutgers and Maryland would become the 13th and 14th members of the Big Ten at the start of this academic year. To get to […]
