Penn State students react to sanctions (Reuters, Craig Houtz)

The NCAA announced Monday morning the sanctions that will come as a direct result of Penn State’s actions over the past (at least) 14 years. After covering up the actions of Jerry Sandusky – assistant football coach and convicted pedophile – for over a decade, Penn State will now face the harsh consequences.

$60 million fine

The NCAA will collect a record $60 million fine from the school. While this is an unprecedented amount, the school does typically make that much in football revenue per year, and they will still be allowed to collect revenues from television deals and ticket sales. They will pay the $60 million in five installments. Continue reading NCAA Announces Penn State Punishment for Jerry Sandusky Cover-Up »

The MLB All-Star Game is around corner, yet the event, once heralded by speculation and excitement, has been replaced by one which draws little more than indifference from casual fans. From the selection process all the way to the actual game, the flaws surrounding this event make it a no-competition when it comes to the NBA All-Star game and even the…gulp…Pro Bowl (At least people care about who gets chosen, something that MLB can’t say).

The result? MLB’s Summer celebration surrounding its biggest stars, is completely burnt out. Continue reading Let’s put the Star back into the MLB All-Star Game »

Bobby Valentine

Bobby Valentine has had a rough week. First his sideshow debacle with Kevin Youkilis, and now another loss to the Yankees has the rage of the city of Boston at his office door. It looked like a brilliant day early on at Fenway Park late Saturday afternoon, with Felix Doubront quieting the high-powered Yankees offense over six dominant innings, but then the Boston bullpen showed up and surrendered consecutive 7-run innings in the 7th and 8th, resulting in a terrible 15-9 loss. The game represented everything that has gone wrong for the Sox in 2012.

Sox Bats Still Hitting

The one thing that has gone right all season has been the offense for the hot Sox lineup, which battered Yankees starter Freddy Garcia early and often, knocking him out after just 1.2 innings of work. Garcia was tagged for five earned runs, including RBI doubles from David Ortiz and Adrian Gonzalez in the first inning. Ortiz was 4-4 on the day, reaching base five times and raising his average to .436. Continue reading Red Sox Blow 9-Run Lead in Horrific Loss to Yankees »
