Let’s face it; this is a pretty abysmal time of the year. A good day is one that comes close to 40 degrees up here in Worcester. A bad day is one in which we get 87 inches of snow, then have to hire Balto to drag us to class, because why would school ever be cancelled? And a normal day is somewhere in between.

On February 12, 2014, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter announced that the 2014 season will be his last in professional baseball. I say this professionally, as a reporter would, but in actuality I could not believe the news. I knew that Jeter was old as far as baseball players go, and that it was only a matter of time until he retired, but I do not think that I am alone in saying that Jeter was a good thing that no one wanted to see end.
Thoughts from the Celtics, Spurs Game
As I write this I am sitting on a bus filled with fellow Holy Cross students en route to the TD Garden to watch the Celtics take on the Spurs. Yes, I am writing this on my phone, so to everyone on the bus who thinks I’m really popular and texting tons of friends, I’m really just writing an article and being anti-social.

United States Men’s Hockey Team Goes for First Gold Medal since “Miracle on Ice” in 1980
I remember watching Edgar Renteria hit a grounder back to Red Sox closer Keith Foulke as the Red Sox completed a sweep of the Cardinals en route to their first World Series victory since 1918, a drought that lasted for 86 long years. I remember the seconds ticking away on Vancouver as the Bruins dominated the Canucks to the tune of 4-0 in Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals ending a championship drought of 39 years.
The Love for the Game of Football
I would be willing to bet that nine times out of ten, boys are late because the game ran late. At least, I know that this is why my dad is never on time. Yet somehow, he is never late to arriving to the actual game. With season tickets to the Giants, my dad has never once missed the coin toss at Giants Stadium, now Metlife Stadium, on a Sunday.

For many people, it’s the stress of money, schoolwork, or other such important aspects of life that keep them up at night. While I certainly do have my fair share of these stresses, they do not cross my mind when my head touches the pillow. Instead, I am haunted by a far more powerful agent of insomnia: the what-ifs of sports.
