Come on, LeBron, grow up

Never mind his multi-million dollar slogan with his multi-billion company: "We Are All Witnesses." LeBron James, the so-called Chosen One, lives by these words, as if to say we all should be grateful that we're breathing the same air as him.

Where, oh where did my youth go?

The other day, in 100-degree weather and without the comfort of shade, I was sweating like a fugitive on the basketball court. I was playing against a former high school teammate. We hadn't played together in nearly a decade - and I swear there were two guys sitting comfortably under a large tree hoping for a story to tell.

A good high school coach is hard to replace

I never met Ed Thomas, the Iowa high school football coach who was shot and killed last week. I never had the chance to go through one of his practices. I never had the privilege of being chewed out because I goofed up. I never suited up for him or rode the bus with him to a football game or enjoyed victory with him.

Soccer finally gets the recognition it deserves

Holmes cruises to an easy win

Last season, after incurring a flat tire, Escalon's Eric Holmes was somehow able to claw his way back through the field to earn a hard fought, come-from-behind victory on the tight confines of the .375-mile bullring at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Ore. This year the defending NASCAR Camping World Series West champion followed a much easier path by jumping out in front and staying there for all 150 laps to win the June 6 Toyota/Bi-Mart 150 presented by NAPA.

Even without LeBron, Finals a must-see

LeBron James was a poor sport last weekend, failing to shake hands with the Orlando Magic after his Cleveland Cavaliers were shunned the chance for an NBA Championship after losing in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. He decided to walk through the tunnel of Amway Arena - the Magic's home court - with his head down, avoiding any kind of human contact, and on to the locker room.

Savor the New Giants' golden age

With one out to get for the 2014 World Series title, a colossally bad defensive play threatened to lose the Giants a championship. San Francisco center fielder Gregor Blanco missed a fly ball. Left fielder Juan Perez kicked it. Kansas City's Alex Gordon sprinted to third and the Royals sent Salvador Perez to bat with a chance to win the game.
