    SEC; 2014 And Still Overrated

    Author Administrator

    We've heard it time and again. Find anyone who follows college football or listens to sports talk radio and ask them which conference is the best conference in College Football. Without a doubt, they will say "SEC". And if they don't? They will. much like myself, be branded a hater. Now to be clear, I am not going to lecture you about which conference is the best. While I personally would say the PAC 12 this year is the best, I'm not going to try to convince you of that. What I am going to do is absolutely destroy the logic behind the knee-jerk "SEC" answer, but this time with facts and numbers. The bottom line? The South Eastern Conference is not nearly as good as you think they are.

  • Oh, Those Magical Royals

    It's that time of year again. Yes, the time where words like "pitching" and "hitting" get replaced with phrases like "they've got that magic" and "fairy dust". Last night at as I was watching the Royals cash in on that "magic" and finish off their sweep of the Angels I saw a sign in the stands that read "We have always believed. Now everyone else does." Cute sign. Realistic? No. After all, it was just a month ago that Royals Manager Ned Yost ripped into the Royals fans for not showing up to games. In fact, the Royals ranked 25th in the league in attendance this year. So no, you haven't always believed, Royals fans, and I don't believe now either. Magic and fairies can be fun. This is baseball.

  • How Donald Sterling Will Beat The NBA

    First off, to be clear I am not a lawyer. I am an over the road truck driver. While this may make you want to be quick to dismiss my observations here, hear me out first. If at the end of the article you still want to dismiss me, feel free. If, however, this article leaves you thinking that I make some valid points, come back and read this first paragraph again. A truck driver, not a lawyer, came up with this. Donald Sterling will be represented by lawyers, not truckers. I'm willing to bet that they can do at least as good a job making a case for him as I am doing right here, and I would even go so far as to suggest that they might do better. Hard to imagine, I know, but it is possible.

  • NBA and Race Relations

    The verdict is in. Donald Sterling is banned from life from the NBA. He cannot run his team nor attend his (or any other NBA) games or any NBA meetings. Furthermore, new Commissioner Adam Silver has announced that the league owners will be meeting to vote on taking the Clippers away from Sterling. He also claims to have talked to a few of the owners and claims that he has the votes. Wait a second... I thought this guy was supposed to be a genius lawyer. Way to plead guilty to collusion before the deal is even done and open the door to the Sterling antitrust lawsuit that will allow him to keep his team. But I digress.

  • Donald Sterling is a racist, but...

    Author Steve Parry

    Yes, this is the topic of conversation for the day. Did you hear what Donald Sterling said to his girlfriend? He should lose his team. All over sports talk radio, and even into the mainstream sources, this is all I hear. What's my opinion on it? Sports talk show hosts are idiots. That's my opinion on the matter. I say this for two reasons. 1, these are guys whose very living depends on their ability to exercise free speech, yet they want a man to lose his livelihood for expressing an unpopular and undesirable opinion. Catch the irony here? But that aside, there is a much larger issue at hand. To be specific, I am speaking here to Evan Cohen, Steve Phillips, Dan Patrick, and Adam Schein. Would any of you hosts care to swim up from the bottom and deal with the real issue at hand here?

Ethan Mack sentenced to 25 years

Written by Mona on .

The Waring family no longer has to worry about a second trial for the man accused of murdering their daughter in 2009. 

On April 1, 2011 Ethan Mack plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter. Mack entered a Alford plea. An Alford plea is when a defendant does not admit his guilt but acknowledges a jury would likely find him guilty had his case gone to trial. Mack was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The prosecution in the case, Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said she had mixed feelings about the plea. But agreed to it because of the unreliability of their main witness, Heather Kamp. Kamp told a jury in October 2010 that she and Mack had murdered Waring. Kamp testified that on June 12, 2009, that she and Mack took Katherine Waring to their home and after tasing her repeatedly hit her in the head with a wine bottle. Kamp said that she and Mack then put Waring in a bathtub filled with water where she drown. Kamp said she and Mack then dumped Waring's body. Kamp led investigator's to the location where Waring's skeletal remains were found in October of 2009. No physical evidence could be linked to the scene where Kamp said the crime had occurred. She told investigators that after the murder, Mack took a nap and she cleaned the bathroom. Waring's body was still inside the home at the time.

Mack's trial ended in a mistrial for murder, but he was found guilty on obstruction of justice and forgery. Heather Kamp plead guilty but mentally ill.  Her sentencing is expected later this month.  Before leaving the courtroom Mack told the Waring family that he was sorry for the loss of their loved one (Kate Waring) and that she would be missed.
