The rib bone’s connected to the…

Our rib cage is a very complex unit involved in allowing for proper breathing mechanics as well as protection of vital organs. The rib cage is constantly moving which can lead to pain if one or more ribs stop moving in sync with the other ribs. Rib dysfunction is often overlooked in the diagnosis of mid back and chest pain and many people live with abnormal rib function for weeks to years without... 

This Cubs fan’s faith restored with World Series win

I was beginning to wonder whether I would ever get the chance to write this column. After all, my grandfather died at the age of 90, lived through two World Wars, two Roosevelt and Bush Administrations, two flybys from Halley’s Comet, and zero Chicago Cubs championships. After 108 years of futility, the math and universe appeared stacked against a World Series win. Then came Wednesday night/Thursday... 

Hurricane Matthew puts sports world in proper perspective

I am writing this from my back porch on a perfect autumn night by moon and candle light. No electricity. No WiFi. Spotty cell phone reception. County-wide curfew with nothing to do, all thanks to last weekend’s unwelcome visit from Hurricane Matthew. The combination of darkness and silence sharpen the senses: Ashes crackle in my fire pit and give off an oaky aroma of sticks that were still... 

My Brain on NASCAR: Picking a champ by process of elimination

For those who love to argue, e.g. lawyers, and teenagers, the sports world is literally a dream come true. If I added up the minutes I have spent arguing with my cousin Rob about the relative merits of the Redskins versus the Cowboys (for some unknown reason we have a lone Dallas fan in the family), I seriously think it could add up to a year or more. And don’t even get me started on college... 

A very happy fifth birthday for Grand Strand Sports Report

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday dear Grand Strand Sports Report … Wow, that’s a mouthful of a name, something we were well aware of when we launched the local sports website five years ago today. Fellow founding father Tyler Watkins and I were worried about whether people would take the time to type that many words into their browsers to check us out for the... 

Everything you (k)need to know about total knee replacement

By the time you’ve made the decision (or you’ve almost come around to the idea) of having your knee replaced most people have all done the same old song and dance. The pain has reached a chronic state in which discomfort is near daily if not constant with coinciding stiffness and/or swelling. It limits your favorite activities such as golfing, walking, gym classes or even restricts your day-to-day... 

Local athletes recall ‘The Day Sports Stood Still’ 15 years later

It is still hard to believe 15 years has passed. It was September 11, 2001, on the fateful day when we were all changed by a moment in time that no American will ever forget. Maybe you are headed to work, like I was that morning, to put together a newspaper and the sports section. My column changed that day almost instantly. My headlines were originally talking about the football games. They now... 

My Brain on NASCAR: Racecar drivers are hard to Trump

Just a few short months have passed since GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump asked the following question at a campaign rally in North Carolina: “NASCAR endorsed Trump, can you believe that?” Well, it was pretty unbelievable … except it wasn’t NASCAR that made the endorsement. It was Brian France, the sanctioning body’s chairman and CEO. France had some fallout to deal with,... 

2016 SEC preseason media poll? Here’s mine

Today’s the day every college football fan has waited for this summer. The first of the 2016 preseason media polls will be released starting in Hoover with the final day of SEC Media Days on tap. It’s “talking season” and the July preseason polls give us all something to yak about or in the case of Sturg and his Crimson Tide, something to crow about. However, we all know...
