The Year Of Sport And Society In Review, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2001

The Year Of Sport And Society In Review, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Normally I don't do a year in review piece although I think I did review the year in Sport and Society one time. I will do it because of the fact that one event so dominated American consciousness this past year that it will make this calendar year a very memorable and special one.

"Ali" The Film: A Review, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Across the world in this century there is no other sports figure better known and more admired than Muhammad Ali. In the United States there may be no sports figure more admired and reviled in any century than Muhammad Ali. For these and other reasons the opening of the film "Ali" today is a much-anticipated event.

George O'Leary And Notre Dame's Integrity, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

George O'Leary's tenure as head football coach at the University of Notre Dame was shorter than even his most vehement detractors had predicted. It took him only five days to self-destruct which could be a NCAA record.


Sport And The Theater Of The Absurd, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2001

Sport And The Theater Of The Absurd, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

There are times when I think that the entire world of sport was put on this earth to amuse me with unending scenes from the theater of the absurd. The last several days brought repeated waves of this feeling.

The Bcs And The Non-Sense It Spawns, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2001

The Bcs And The Non-Sense It Spawns, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

About this time each year since the creation of the BCS I have posed the question, "Who took the "C" out of the "BCS?" Each year there are different answers to the question, and this year there are many and there may be still more to come.

Thanksgiving And Football, Richard C. Crepeau Nov 2001

Thanksgiving And Football, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

(As with all American traditions if it happened once or twice it is one. Therefore I present my traditional Thanksgiving piece) The History of Thanksgiving and of Football both go back into the Middle Ages, and so it may not be so strange that the two would become intertwined in modern America.

Mark Mcgwire Leaves The Game: His Legacy, Richard C. Crepeau Nov 2001

Mark Mcgwire Leaves The Game: His Legacy, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Mark McGwire has retired. He will be best remembered as the man who broke Roger Maris' single season home run record. He will be remembered in tandem with Sammy Sosa for that wonderful season of 1998 when the two of them chased Roger Maris across the sands of time and then both caught him. He will be remembered for the wonderful scene as he broke Maris' record. He will be remembered as one of the "Bash Brothers" who, along with Jose Canseco, redefined the term "long ball" and became a "murderer's row" of two.

Downsizing Mlb, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

When asked if it was a sad day for baseball when it was announced that two major league baseball teams would be eliminated within the next few weeks, Bud Selig, Baseball's Wizard of Oz, said "no." What did you expect from the man who cancelled the World Series?

Patriotism Post 9/11 And Contraction, Richard C. Crepeau Nov 2001

Patriotism Post 9/11 And Contraction, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Now back in the country among My Fellow Americans, but still wandering the highways and byways, I watch with some interest the spectacle of the baseball playoffs and the World Series in the new Post-9/11 World. I am struck by the intensity of the patriotic pageantry prior to each game. The often beautiful and moving singing of the National Anthem; the excessive displays of the red, white and blue; President Bush throwing out the first ball at the World Series; all conspire to mark these events as great moments of communal remembrance and/or celebration.

The Late But Still Great World Series: Bob Brenly Is Blessed At The Bob, Richard C. Crepeau Nov 2001

The Late But Still Great World Series: Bob Brenly Is Blessed At The Bob, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

In many ways this unpredictable World Series was highly predictable, in other ways it was one of the wildest crapshoots in recent history. It was also one of the best World Series ever, rivaling the 1991 Twins-Braves in my memory bank.
