Today’s View From the Bull Pen
St Patty's Day
To celebrate the return of Patrick Roy, I thought I'd post my three favorite and most requested Roy cartoons from my days at the Rocky Mountain News. I'm excited he's back and I know you guys are too. So here's to St Patty. I'll raise a pint o' Guinness to that!
Have a great a safe memorial day weekend!

It’s a long season. Way, way, way too long. And for those of us who have to endure it to get to the good part, that being the playoffs, the…
The odds aren’t good. Simply put waiting for an NBA player to make a free throw is a bit like waiting for the Cubs to win the World Series. It…
I’m not sure why the NBA decided to give Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) a break on his suspension (only 7 games). It’s beyond belief really. And yet, no matter…
Contracts. Mega million dollar contracts for people to hit a baseball, shoot a basketball, throw a pass, score a goal. Meanwhile the unemployment rate hovers at 10% (or so we…
I don’t know about you but the return of the NBA is NOT on my Christmas list. In fact one way to assure a less than perfect holiday season is…
Everyone once and awhile one of those really fun images just seems to appear out of thin air. This one, oddly enough, came while showering. Now stay with me. The late great Bill Mauldin, who won multiple Pulitzer prizes as an editorial cartoonist, used to make it a rule that he had to have 10 ideas every morning while he sat in the bath tub. Creativity happens at weird times and usually it’s when you’re in the midst of some mundane task, like shaving, or driving a car. Anyway, I couldn’t pass up the chance to draw the witch from Snow White. It seemed like the perfect metaphor for Carmelo Anthony’s recent case of New York blues.
The song says ” If he can Make it there he’ll Make it anywhere, it’s up to you New York, New York.”
And, for Carmelo Anthony, so it is. He might be thinking by now, this Big Apple idea was a really bad one. And he’ll find out soon enough, if he hasn’t already, people in New York are much less forgiving than those of us here in Denver. Especially the media. It’s that old adage. Be careful what you wish for.
You all have any thoughts about Melo’s choking on the Big Apple? Rant away!
There’s no crying in Baseball. Basketball, apparently, is a whole different matter. Members of the Miami Heat actually teared up in their post-game press conferences Sunday night after dropping their 4th game in a row. The Avs have lost 15 of their last 16 and I don’t see any Hockey players crying in their beer. Course maybe that’s whats wrong with the Avalanche. They seem like they have stopped caring.
When LeBron “took his talents to South Beach” I’m sure this isn’t exactly what he and his teammates had in mind. It reminds me a bit of a pickup basketball game we played in one morning before school.
We had a bunch of guys in our neighborhood who were not bad (OK, I WAS really bad) but certainly not to the level of the starting 5 from our 8th grade team that we played that morning. We beat them. A bunch of Sandlot kids beat the starting 5 for the Morehead Red Raiders. Why? Because our guys played together as a team while the real “team” played selfishly, and with arrogance. Sure it wasn’t an official “game”. But it was a lesson. A lesson in teamwork. Which is what 99% of the players in the NBA could stand to learn. Especially the Miami Heat.
