By Ken Napzok When I was a kid obsessed with the game, rooting for my heroes, and dreaming about taking the field myself, the Sporting News put out a couple of books called The Series: An Illustrated History of Baseball’s Postseason Showcase.

Did the Patriots do Josh Gordon dirty?

by Jordy McElroy The New England Patriots needed Josh Gordon until they didn’t. That’s the moment the former All-Pro wideout learned the Patriot Way wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows—a perpetuating narrative given life through the popped champagne bottles, confetti parades and Lombardi Trophies.

Emotionless, heartless and merciless—it’s a rare approach … Continue reading Did the Patriots do Josh Gordon dirty?

by Ken Napzok Though I am very well-studied in baseball history (I think I’ve watched the third inning of Ken Burns baseball 42 times alone) and there is nothing more historic than the World Series. Every at-bat is history in the making. It’s a living document that connects the present day all the way back to the first series in 1903. And though I am … Continue reading THE BIG HIT | The 5 things the Astros and Nationals need to do to win the World Series
