We’ve waited 21 years for this. Tonight, we are back!

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are set to play in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament tonight at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC. It’s a night that we’ve been waiting on for 21 years. When Coastal last visited the tournament, the expectations were high that Coastal would be back, and soon. With a new name, new colors, and a team that would return for the 1994 season, things looked promising...

Winter Dull-ympics offer little relief for real sports fans

I love sports – almost all of them. During my 20-plus year sportswriting career and 40-ahem year life, I’ve either played it, watched it, covered it or gained an appreciation for it even if I’m not a fan. I’ve seen people play basketball on donkey back; I’ve attended a camel race in the Middle East; and I’ve witnessed a big crowd watch in anticipation while wagering... 

Five simple stretches to improve your golf game

Have you ever noticed the first few holes of a round of golf seem the hardest to play? If you answered ‘yes’ to this question, then you may need to take more time to stretch prior to your next round. Stretching is a crucial component to any physical activity.  Golf is no different.  Stretching awakens the muscles, loosens the tendons and ligaments and elongates the muscles to create elasticity... 

Ten reasons to watch Broncos-Seahawks in Super Bowl

Aside from the obvious matchup between the Denver Broncos’ No. 1 offense vs. the Seattle Seahawks’ No. 1 defense, here are the top 10 reasons to watch this year’s Super Bowl: 1)  Football – First and foremost, it is just the biggest football game on the planet that happens only once a year; plus did I mention that it was football! 2) Two words – Broncos/Seahawks: Just to see... 

Clemson sends wrong message by extending Dabo

I guess Clemson is content with playing second fiddle. That’s all I could think upon reading the news of head coach Dabo Swinney’s new 8-year contract extension that will pay him close to $3.5 million annually, according to a report on www.clemsoninsider.com. I spent the majority of my childhood in Myrtle Beach, and remember a time when the split between Clemson and South Carolina fans was truly... 

Panthers break the ice with playoff experience

One of the best and worst assignments of my 22-year sportswriting career was covering the Carolina Panthers in the 1996 NFC Championship Game … IN Green Bay … IN January. It was the Panthers’ second year in the league, and they were going up against one of the most storied franchises in NFL history. The Packers delivered a stern 30-13 lesson in playoff football that chilly day in... 

Basketball Players- Be Aware of Functional Ankle Instability

With the start of basketball season upon us it is a good time to provide some insight on ankle sprains and strategies to offset them.  Most basketball injuries occur in the legs, and even more so in the foot and ankle. This is in part due to the constant starting/stopping motions, acceleration and deceleration of the body, moving in multiple planes, and moving within traffic “in the paint.” Most... 

Plantar fasciitis can be a real pain in the foot

One of the most frequently reported foot problems in our clinics is plantar fasciitis.  The plantar fascia is a flat piece of connective tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes and helps to form and support that arch of your foot. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammatory condition of this tissue.  Causes of plantar fasciitis vary, though they include being overweight, high arches, flat feet,... 

A not-so fond farewell to the BCS

It’s already a happy new year for college football fans, if for no other reason than knowing its the last one we will have to spend at the mercy of the BCS. Yet even though I know the unfair system is on its way out the door, I can’t help to give it one last kick in the “S” for making us sit through a New Year’s Day primetime matchup of Central Florida and Baylor. It’s...
