Why the Weekend After the Super Bowl Seems a Little DrabAll you need to know about U.S. sports in February is this: the lead story in the sports section of today's "New York Times" was about a huge controversy about possible conflicts of interest involving a prominent sports official -- a dog show judge. When it comes to calling the block or the charge on a German shepherd, this guy's the best known in the business.
In fairness to the Times, this was a much entertaining read than its obsessive pursuit of PEDs in every game this side of Scrabble. That's not setting the bar very high. Didn't they have some pictures of pitchers and catchers they could run?
