There is arrogance in sports. And then there is arrogance without cause in sports.
This is very unique. It’s pretty awkward. It’s a little embarrassing, to be honest.
The minute I heard the Phoenix Suns had made yet another clear-the-cupboard, shake-the-Etch-a-Sketch, let’s-try-this-again trade on Friday, I thought about my nephew Jake.
SPRINGFIELD, Colo. — Southeast Colorado farmer Ryan Loflin tried an illegal crop this year. He didn't hide it from neighbors, and he never feared law enforcement would come asking about it.
It wasn’t just another nationally televised disappointment for the Arizona Cardinals. It was, for all intents and purposes, another season ending before Halloween.
When the Diamondbacks fired pitching coach Charles Nagy this week, there were a lot of nodding heads that met the move. If you’ve watched Arizona pitchers for the last two years it was pretty hard to argue.
So with the NHL regular season beginning its long, winding regular season this last week I spent a lot of time recently perusing the pundits to compare analysis of who will be fighting for the Stanley Cup in June.

On St. Vincent de Paul Executive Director Steve Zabilski’s wall is a photo taken a few years ago of former Fry’s Food Stores President Jon Flora during a visit to the center. It’s of the now-deceased man surrounded by a group of children, all holding books donated to them during his visit.
Vince Lombardi was quoted as saying “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.”
WASHINGTON — Glued to your desk at work? Cross that off the list of reasons not to exercise.
The minute the words left general manager Kevin Towers lips — the Arizona Diamondbacks need to add a power-hitting outfielder next year — the second-guessers of the Justin Upton deal shifted into high gear.

The last time Hamilton lost a home football game, George W. Bush was on the verge of being reelected as President.
Every fan and media member and most NFL players loathe the fourth and final preseason game. Most of the players you care about either play a series or sit out completely. Anyone with a nagging injury? Take seat. Nothing beats spending four hours pondering “Why hasn’t the season started already?”
I can honestly say that six months ago, I thought (and wrote) the Diamondbacks would be pretty much where they find themselves today.
Yasiel Puig’s first 60 games as a major leaguer have been very exciting. He’s hitting .370, driven in 27 runs in his first 250 at-bats and the Los Angeles Dodgers have gone from under .500 to a team on pace for 100-plus wins since he arrived in early June.
Full disclosure to start: I had the Los Angeles Dodgers dead and buried in June. Done. Over. Even with the phenomenon that is Yasiel Puig; even with Ian Kennedy poking the big, blue bear with a sharp stick at just the wrong moment with two of the most ill-timed beanballs in baseball history.
It’s been more than eight years since Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro and the rest of the original ‘Roid Pack marched in front of Congress and said, in order: (a) I just want to move forward, (b) I don’t understand English and (c) I’ve never taken anything (insert finger wag here) during some of the most uncomfortable programming in C-SPAN history.

I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received this season from Diamondback fans lamenting the great season Max Scherzer is having with the Detroit Tigers, and how his 13-0 record would have Arizona comfortably in first place instead of fighting tooth-and-nail with its shaky starters and flammable bullpen this summer.
Funny how things can change in a week in the sports world.
