Manti Te'o is not impressing at the NFL Combine, leading some experts to predict he might fall out of the first round in April's NFL Draft. He ran a 4.82 40-yard that caused John Harbaugh to shake his head. Add all the stress from having to answer questions from the media horde and it sure sounds like he could use a friendly ear...
The story broke this morning -- school presidents in the the Mountain West Conference are circulating a memo questioning the leadership of the NCAA and asking each other if they should reshape the leadership or do something else entirely. So we'll ask you, too, in our poll below.
The El Paso Rhinos and the Boulder Bison saved the best for last. After Friday's 3-0 Rhinos' win and Saturday's 4-1 Bison victory, Sunday's rubber match promised to be the best of the three-game series. It lived up to the billing, going to the ninth frame of a shootout before Taylor Barger scored on a top-shelf wrister to win it for El Paso.
The first thing that ran through my mind was, "You want me to do play-by-play for what?!"
Call it a blind date that turned into a 16-year relationship spanning Acts II and III of hockey in the high desert. I wasn't around for Act I in the 1970's (Paul Zimmerman's excellent attached video on El Paso's hockey history shows a little of that). Like most of us here, I didn't know hockey from jalapeños; but I wouldn't trade my experiences calling the fastest game on earth for anything.
The El Paso Rhinos are back in action this weekend against the Boulder Bison. You can listen to the action on 600 ESPN El Paso, but it's even better in person, especially when the Rhinos' team captain, Mike Rivera, is from right here in El Paso. It also helps that Mike is pretty good, too, as you can see.
Does Dickie V's commentary hold water? Will Kobe Bryant do as he says and not as he does? Is David Beckham the Geico Gecko and does he use a butt double?! These questions and more answered in this week's "That Will Do" with Duke Keith.
Today is the final day of the regular season in boys high school basketball before it's playoff time. Two teams that will be making the post-season played a GREAT game at Montwood last Friday night, as Bel Air hit a last-second shot to beat the Rams, 57-55. And we have a few of the highlights!
Having done more than my share of minor league hockey play-by-play, I can appreciate a good call of the wackiness that happens when you combine chaos theory with not-well-thought-out marketing strategies and sporting events. This is called minor league sports. I've dealt with a team that changed its name to the Cow Pattys, seen a team play when it snowed through a hole in the El Paso County Coliseum roof and more. So I can appreciate the reaction of these announcers when faced with a large condor that decided it didn't want to be in a hockey rink. Imagine that!
Sean Kugler might be a first-year head coach but he's no stranger to El Paso or the game of football. When he unveiled his first class of recruits on National Letter of Intent signing day, two kinds of athletes stood out -- local stars and hard-nosed players.
