IMG World Congress of Sports

I spent last Wednesday and Thursday (March 21-22) at the IMG World Congress of Sports conference at the Pierre in New York City. The WCOS is perhaps the most prestigious sports business conference and consists of luminary panelists and attendees within the sports business industry. Naturally, this conference is held annually in New York City [...]

GNN Blazer Football Rules

I checked my voice mail tonight (which is a big task for me) and was pleasantly surprised to receive a hilarious message from one of my best friends from high school. He was impersonating our high school football coach. I never played football or lacrosse in high school so I don’t have a good Coach [...]

I read recently that running back Dominick Williams was cut by the Houston Texans. You probably know Williams as Dominick Davis, his name before he was injured. He must have rehabbed really really well because he repaired his name in the process. Shortly after changing his name Williams/Davis told the Houston media, “That was Domanick [...]

O.J. — Oh Snap

There’s a new O.J. coming to LA and he’s one bad ass…. It feels like I have been hearing about high school basketball star O.J. Mayo since forever. As he finally approaches college it seems like he is a bad, bad apple. In January, he assaulted a referee after being ejected from a game. Then [...]

Who will be Michigan’s next basketball coach?

I was going to write a post about Tommy Amaker being fired and evaluate his potential replacements but my friend Wolk beat me to it by sending out a great email today (a copy is below). I agree with Wolk that we need a coach who can recruit and coach. Although Michigan has a great [...]

Tourney Stuff To Watch

One of the reasons I fell in love with college basketball as a kid was because there seemed to be an infinite universe of schools, players and storylines. I used to wonder how every team had such a good record. What happened to the teams with bad records? Were they like the guys in the [...]

Sportsvite Rocks

This week I sent out an email to all of my contacts (over 300 people) touting Sportsvite.com. The other dudes in the office did the same. Our network of friends and teammates is pretty substantial. More importantly, they like sports and they like us. The number gets to be even more substantial if our friends [...]

March Madness Thoughts & L-Hoops Pool

This week of March Madness is far and away my favorite week of the year. First, Championship week leads up to selection sunday (today). The next few days are great for filling out your brackets and to build up tremendous anticipation. Thursday and Friday are my favorite two days of the year. I’ll probably take [...]

Old School LittyHoops

A bunch of people have been asking me to write about college basketball. This makes sense since most people are used to reading my Littyhoops articles back in the day. I still try and carry on the Littyhoops legacy where it is appropriate (hence the header graphic of this blog). Actually, I’ll gladly buy a [...]

My Best Piece of Writing Ever

I love to write. It’s part of the reason why I started this blog. I’ve been writing in some capacity since high school. Back then I wrote for the school newspaper (I was also captain of the math team!). In college I kept a personal journal and took a bunch of literature classes. Interestingly enough, [...]
