Alex Boone: Tasered and Arrested, Definitely Not a Ninja.

Almost three years ago, Ohio State Buckeye Alex Boone was arrested and convicted on a driving under the influence charge.  He was then 18-years of age, but managed to avoid a jail sentence due to being 0.001 of a percent under the legal limit for a mandatory three-day stint.  Needless to say, after his antics

New Year’s Resolutions for Sports

I hate resolutions.  It seems to me that, when you really think about it, that people wait until an arbitrary moment in time before they stop eating and start exercising or whatever else the resolution might be.  If you feel like changing something in your life, you should probably just do it whenever.  That’s usually
