It’s time for the Madness to begin. The conference finals have all been played, and though there were a few surprises (who saw Providence beating Creighton in the Big East finals – by a strong 65-58 margin too) the favorites are still rolling forward as the top seeds going into the tournament this week.

If the grocery store aisles full of green ribbons and bottles of Guinness didn’t already remind you St. Patrick’s Day was coming, it reminds people of another thing that only happens every 12 months – MARCH MADNESS.

It’s time for another look at Olympic Men’s Hockey! The United States, Canada and Sweden all emerged from the first round of group play undefeated, and while that seems like good news on paper, no unbeaten team from the opening round has gone on to win the gold medal since 1998. There’s good action to…

The 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi are in full swing and the “Olympic Madness” is upon us. There are always a few marquee events at the games that garner the public’s attention – figure skating, the ski jump, snowboarding and the like. My personal favorite has always been Olympic Hockey, dating back to the famous…

It’s a sporting event so big that some observers have argued it should be a national holiday – the annual NFL clash between AFC and NFC championship teams – better known as the Super Bowl.
