    Ever read a short story about a staged war (and sports violence)?

    Hello Alien Soup gang, I am in search of a short story I must have read in the late 1980s. I remember it so vividly: The stage is set by a pair of TV announcers at a coliseum, setting the audience up for an unbelievable match to take place. It sounds like two sports teams will be taking the...

    Sports 2018 Winter Olympics

    The 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea starts this week. For some odd reason I've always paid more attention to the Winter Olympics than the traditional Summer Olympics. Anybody else watching? What are some of the sports you're looking forward to? I'm partial to the bobsled and skeleton events.

    Sports 2016 Summer Olympics - Rio

    So, just saw that Michael Phelps has qualified for his fifth Olympics team! :eek: That's a pretty impressive feat of it's own considering how young most Olympic athletes are these days. Hopefully as they get closer to the game starting Rio will start getting more positive news stories. So...

    Sports Professional athletes in the Olympics?

    OK, I'm not exactly a sports fan so this might be common knowledge to some but I think I missed the answer somewhere over the years. In short, if the Olympics are supposed to be about the best of amateur athletes competing against each other, how did professional athletes start taking part in...

    Sports Winter Olympics 2014 - Sochi

    So, who will be watching the Sochi Winter Olympics? Based upon all of the news stories about construction taking place yet, and likely will be till the last possible minute, any watching I do will be as a result of wondering if anything will wrong on international TV. :coffee:

    Just on Sportscenter, the cheater is supposed to be banned for 214 games, the announcement coming tomorrow. I still don't think this is enough. He is a cheater, he has tainted the game of baseball, and he needs removed from the game. It's not his right to play the game, it's a privilege. He...

    Sports Riley Cooper

    Opinions? Thoughts? And in case you are not in the sports world at all, this dude uttered the "N" word during a Kenny Chesney concert and the video just surfaced. Not sure how well he thought this would play out, considering the majority of his teammates as well as players in the NFL are black.
