It was a weekend of screen-watching for the Observers. They saw the latest rebuilt squad of Milwaukee Bucks go 1-1 to open the NBA season. There was the World Series, with Frank's Yanks taking charge in Philadelphia. And of course there was the second version of the football game...

The Fairly Detached Observers

The first week of the NCAA basketball tournament began well but ended sadly for local fans. Marquette beat Utah State, 58-57, but lost to Missouri, 83-79, despite a stirring second-half rally.

Sports in Real Life

For many years I’ve been daydreaming about sports. Not in your traditional “I wish I were Hank Aaron, or Tony Mandarich” kind of dreaming. In this wonderment I look at a sport and consider why some things aren’t different or more sporting. How could we make professional sports more interesting? What if we made golf balls out of something a little denser? How about filling the little orb with ball bearings or cement? Let’s see Tiger blast a chunk of concrete off the tee 300 yards...
