Golf, the sport for the 1%

The U.S. Open golf tournament begins this morning in North Carolina, and Tiger Woods " the One, the greatest of his generation, the alpha and omega " remains sidelined while recovering from back surgery. He also missed the Masters, the first major tournament of the year, prompting The Atlantic to ponder golf's future sans Tiger and pronounce it "bleak." >More
 The 2014 NBA Finals, finally

It might seem hard to believe, given that the Wisconsin Badgers played themselves into and out of the NCAA Final Four a full two months ago, but basketball season has pressed on. And on. And on. >More
 Where to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Madison

For fans of international soccer who live in the United States, watching broadcasts of the World Cup is usually not a simple proposition. Set aside the quadrennial discussion over whether the sport is set to break out in this country -- it's that the last four editions have been held on the other side of the world that has made dedicated fandom a serious commitment. The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, though, is making supporting your side much easier. >More
 Can the Madison Mallards win again in 2014?

With spring semesters ending at universities across the country, a mostly new crop of Madison Mallards have filtered into town to begin their summer internships " defending the team's 2013 championship from the rest of the Northwoods League at the Duck Pond in Warner Park. >More
 Storm clouds gathering for Milwaukee Brewers?

At this point in the year, your evaluation of the Milwaukee Brewers might reveal more about you than it does the team. If you're an optimist, then the pitching is just fine, the hitting eventually will come around, and the Crew is still in first place despite slumping through May thus far, so shut up. >More
 Jared Abbrederis is rewarded with Packers pick in NFL draft

All right, fans, you can come out now. It's safe to turn on ESPN or local radio without hearing another day's yammering dedicated to measurables, motors and upside. America's biggest quasi-sports event is in the books for another year. We are off the clock. The NFL draft is over. >More
 The Madison Radicals are compelling contenders in 2014

We went to the Madison Radicals' home opener last Saturday, and to quote the old Jim's Journal comic, it was okay. That's not quite fair, actually. It's tempting for a meat-and-potatoes sports fan to smirk at the prospect of professional Frisbee, but Madison has treated Ultimate seriously for decades, an attitude that was evident last weekend among the crowd of 900 at Breese Stevens Field. >More
 The Brewers' amazing April

If you're a casual fan, you may very well be taking your sweet time to get into baseball season. After all, it's one of the few things that last even longer than a Wisconsin winter, so you're completely reasonable not to pay the first bit of attention until Memorial Day or July 4th. >More
 Dumb unwritten rules trigger the 'brawl' between the Brewers and Pirates

The Brewers are hot and have claimed the early lead in the National League Central. But the only thing anyone wanted to discuss after Sunday's game with Pittsburgh was the "brawl" ignited by Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez, who violated hidebound baseball protocol in the third inning by flipping his bat and pausing a beat too long to inspect a deep line drive he soon converted to a triple. >More
 The Milwaukee Bucks' chronic wasting disease

Because you certainly lost any faint trace of interest in the Milwaukee Bucks months (or years) ago, I am compelled to report that their season has ended. They fashioned the worst year in franchise history and did it with style, erasing a 20-62 effort in 1994 with a six-month spree of steaming garbage time that couldn't have been much worse. >More
