Willis McGaheeLEXINGTON, KENTUCKY—I’m so sick and tired of sports right now I don’t know what to do… NFL rookies who haven’t played a down demanding to start or be traded…

240 hitters making six-million dollars a year…

Jim Gray…

The possibility that the Red Sox will be the American League wildcard…

The probability that Larry Holmes, George Foreman, Mike Tyson, and Riddick Bowe will fight again…

The American commitment to diversity in developing athletes to compete at the international level in sports other than track and field…

Never played the game “Experts”…

Taunting after a routine tackle…

12 professional basketball players who as a team can only make 61 percent of their free throws and only 19 percent of their three point shots…

“Genius Coaches” who can’t understand that when the game ends, the team with the most points wins…

The number of African Americans other than players and coaches who work for a professional sports organization…

In a couple of weeks we’ll again see more African Americans on the field than African Americans in the stands at big time college football games…

Maurice Green’s gold medal mouth and bronze medal performance…

Parents in youth sports fighting in the stands about whose kid deserves more playing time…

The media’s tone of joy in Tiger Woods normalcy as a professional golfer…

Baseball’s absence of spirited dugout chatter from Little Leaguers to Major Leaguers…

Ticket prices…

Athletes train all their lives to be athletes then decide they can all of a sudden be a credible actor or actress…

The ranking of eight and nine year olds as basketball players…

Columnist who feel like whining…

And on that note…
