Heed the early warning signs of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The hand and wrist are the most active and intricate parts of the upper extremity. Due to the high levels of demand they are vulnerable to injury, which may ultimately lead to functional difficulties involving fine motor skills of the hands. A repetitive strain injury may be at play, which is an “overuse” syndrome that results from excessive use of the hands to perform a repetitive task, such as... 

Tee it up for junior golf at SpeedGolf Tournament

I would like to invite everyone to the first-ever SpeedGolf Tournament in Myrtle Beach. SpeedGolf is a newer concept of golf where you run and play as fast as you can. Your SpeedGolf score is determined by the  minutes + strokes during your round. This is a two-person team effort, so you can partner up with a friend and run and play together. We will have lots of prizes to the top six teams for nine-... 

Gilmore gets his 1,000th win the old fashioned way

It was only fitting that Coastal Carolina baseball coach Gary Gilmore’s 1,000th career victory came in extra innings. After all, much of his success is a product of putting in lots of overtime. Gilmore reached the milestone Thursday when the Chants needed 13 innings to knock off Presbyterian, which coincidentally was the same team Gilmore got his first victory during his head coaching debut at... 

Spring and summer are the seasons of sports injuries

For many people spring and summer mean one thing—time to get off of the couch and enjoy the sunshine. Many of us like to spend that time actively, whether hitting the beach for a game of volleyball, lacing up the running shoes  for a jog, or cleats for a game of softball.  We love to humble ourselves on one of our many golf courses, or challenge a friend in a tennis match for bragging rights. ... 

Blowing the whistle on all the Madness

The college basketball season comes to a close tonight with the most unlikely of matchups – No. 7 Connecticut vs. No. 8 Kentucky. Pretty unbelievable if you are among the millions who won’t be receiving a billion-dollar check from Warren Buffett after your bracket was busted before the start of the Not-So Sweet 16. But if you really think about, chaos is really the only thing that makes... 

They ought to Quidditch while they’re still ahead

Over 70 teams from 3 countries are in North Myrtle Beach this weekend for the International Quidditch Association World Cup VII. Let me put that in a different perspective, nearly 1700 college kids are riding around on brooms, trying their best to find a snitch. The chasers are running around with a quaffle, and the beaters are running around with bludgers. Got all that? Good. While hanging out at... 

It’s a good time to be a self-loathing Gamecock fan

Clemson, a series that normally trends the opposite way. Head ball coach Steve Spurrier made sure to remind Tiger fans of that fact on New Year’s Day after winning the Capital One Bowl, taking some of the luster off Clemson’s impending Orange Bowl victory. The South Carolina baseball team just completed a three-game sweep of the Tigers on the diamond to earn the No. 1 spot in the national... 

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...
