7 Athletes and PEDs http://ballhyped.com/2013/02/03/7-athletes-and-peds/ Mon, 04 Feb 2013 02:34:53 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/02/03/7-athletes-and-peds/

TweetPerformance enhancing drugs (PEDs) are part of the modern day sports culture. From turning an Olympic East German woman's shot putter into a man in the 1980s to the deer antler spray of today - the desire to have a competitive edge by any means necessary is an accepted evil in athletics. Personally, I am […]

TweetThere is no need to explain the significance of Stan Musial's baseball career as a St. Louis Cardinal. The three time MVP and three time World Series champion played all 22 seasons for the Cardinals of St. Louis. While his career as a Cardinal statistically undoubtedly made him the greatest Cardinal of all time; it […]

TweetThe Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) got it right in 2013. The Baseball Hall of Fame (HOF) is not the Hall of Good Guys. (Dale Murphy) The Baseball Hall of Fame is not the Hall of Milestone Numbers and you are automatically included regardless if you cheated, regardless if you are a bully, regardless […]

TweetFor the old school NBA hoops junkies out there, today marks the 25th anniversary passing of former NBA All Star and basketball whiz Pete Maravich. Maravich averaged 24.2 points per game in the NBA and his college hoops career at Louisiana State University was even more impressive. Maravich not only owns the three highest single […]

TweetAt midnight, December 31, 2012 the United States will fall off the Fiscal Cliff. Whatever. The United States fell off the Fiscal Cliff years ago. As of the Fiscal Year ending September 30, 2012, the US spent 15.3% of the tax revenue collected on servicing debt (i.e. interest). In addition to an unsustainable debt service […]

Rating the Arizona Cardinals starting quarterbacks since 1988. http://ballhyped.com/2012/12/29/rating-the-arizona-cardinals-starting-quarterbacks-since-1988/ Sun, 30 Dec 2012 03:32:59 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/12/29/rating-the-arizona-cardinals-starting-quarterbacks-since-1988/

TweetOkay, the original plan was to rate Arizona quarterbacks in some sort of sequential hierarchy since the Cardinals moved from St. Louis to Tempe, Arizona in 1988. After further review, this plan seemed frivolous. Only two quarterbacks have taken the Cardinals to the playoffs since arriving in the desert, Kurt Warner and Jake Plummer. Kurt […]

TweetYep, it's happened. The fine folks in Phoenix are ready to go against the environmental grain and break out the paper sack mask for Arizona Cardinal home football games. In fact, there is a Craig's List advertisement touting the paper sack perk the Dec. 23, 2012 home game against the Chicago Bears. According to the […]
