The 2021 Baseball Hall of Fame results may finally force change in the way players are inducted into Cooperstown. Curt Schilling's public whines are offset by discussion of whether he's even worthy, if he was just a "really good" player and not a legend, and the morality clause for induction. Veteran MLB columnist and reporter Bob Klapisch has one of those sacred votes, and even he is tired of the double standard, t...

Super Bowl LV hasn't been played and already there's talk about this being a "game for the ages". Why? Because there's a QB who has obviously made a deal with the Devil against a youngster whom some have already tabbed the next GOAT? There's more to the game than all that, and it's right here on "The Man in the Arena: Sports Pulse".

The Super Bowl is much more than just a football game, It is an experience, a carnival ride, a week's worth of color and dazzle that turned football fans into zealots, and made even non-sports fans part of the action. It took years to become the bacchanalia of today, and at the core of that revelry, popularity and profit, there sits Jim Steeg.

Hank Aaron leaves behind much more than lines in the MLB record books, and it's up to this generation to carry that legacy. On a related note, real questions have to be asked yet AGAIN why Eric Bieniemy, a worthy black coach, is not HC in the NFL. It's all about society and how people of every color fail to look past their own nose.

In an odd twist, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is enraged at the thought of doing background checks on his National Guard. Why would this bother him so, especially in light of what occurred just hours after he made his statement? At issue here is th...

Newsfront, America holds its breath during Inauguration week as we need to ask who is protecting whom? What will Donald Trump do in private life to continue his shock and awe? Is he now the single most dangerous individual in America? And you will meet the single most delusional DC rioter of them all, or perhaps a perfect example of insanity.

Shaq goes after the whiny James Harden over his deal to the NY Nets and calls him out for failing in Houston. Even with a new Head Coach, why should NY Jets fans trust the worst ownership in the NFL? Should the US Olympic family punish one of their own involved in the Washington DC insurrection riots? And is the rivalry between Boston and NY still something fans even think about?

In any normal year, America is dotted with sports camps of all types and sizes. This is where they promise to prepare young athletes for their next athletic step, often from high school to college. But aside from teaching them how to block, tackle and shoot, are they really preparing this next generation for the real skills and opportunities they will face? The Florida Rising Stars Foundation is changing the way camps are run, brin...

There's a fight set for July 18th in Iowa that is not merely another boxing sham, but it has the approval of Governor Kim Reynolds to potentially be deadly for all in attendance. Let's not forget the "main event" features an "old as dirt" champion who can barely get in and of the ring under his own power.
