Before their UCLA Final Four run, they crossed paths as prep stars in Southern California

One of Johnny Juzang’s last high school basketball games at Harvard-Westlake High was against Santa Margarita High in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 semifinals. The Wolverines lost 50-45 that night in February 2019. Juzang scored 19 points, but so did Santa Margarita standout Jake Kyman, who was already signed to play for UCLA at the time. Little did they know that just a couple years later, they’d be teammates on a magical Final Four run. But not before Kyman went on to lead the Eagles to ...

Here is our first Kentucky Derby Super Six of 2021

I’m kind of proud of the fact that I had Authentic ranked No. 5 when I debuted my 2020 Kentucky Derby Super Six more than a year ago. Of course, he went on to win the Kentucky Derby and the Breeders’ Cup Classic, along with being named Horse of the Year. Now, I won’t bore you with the four horses I ranked ahead of Authentic. That’s all water under the bridge, right? OK, OK. I’ll tell you. After all, transparency is high on my list. I’m embarrassed to reveal my top four Derby contenders on Jan. 1...

Here’s an early triple play for Kentucky Derby consideration

We won’t unveil our first Kentucky Derby Super Six until later this month, but there are a trio of sophomore colts who warrant Derby watchers’ attention this week.

The True Value Of An Arts Degree

A recent graduate says of her art history, cultural analysis, and other classes, “Being able to take these topics seriously and giving them the same attention and weight as things such as 18th-century philosophy taught me so much more about our communities, what we value, what we enjoy and whom we pay attention to.” – Maclean’s (Canada)

Breeders’ Cup notes: All eyes on Jackie’s Warrior in Juvenile

Jackie’s Warrior is the 7-5 morning-line favorite for Friday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Keeneland Race Course, and for good reason. The Maclean’s Music colt has won all four of his races by a combined 13 1/4 lengths, including a pair of Grade I stakes – the Champagne at Belmont and the Hopeful at Saratoga. But Dennis’ Moment was highly touted heading into last year’s Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita, and he broke poorly and finished last. Plus, Jackie’s Warrior has never raced around two...

Breeders’ Cup notebook: Fever knocks Vekoma out of Sprint, possibly off to stud

Vekoma, the 3-1 morning-line favorite in Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Sprint at Keeneland Race Course, was scratched Wednesday morning after the 4-year-old son of Candy Ride spiked a fever Tuesday night. The George Weaver-trained colt was unbeaten in three starts this year, including victories in a pair of Grade I stakes – the Carter Handicap and the Met Mile – at Belmont Park. He’d won his three starts this year by a combined 12 1/4 lengths. “He shipped down early Tuesday morning, we took him out t...

Tiz the Law might benefit from Breeders’ Cup Classic being at Keeneland

Barclay Tagg, the trainer for Tiz the Law, is happy this weekend’s Breeders’ Cup will be held at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., and not Churchill Downs. Tiz the Law, installed as the 3-1 second choice on the morning line for Saturday’s $6 million Classic, has lost only twice in eight career starts and both defeats came at Churchill Downs.The most disappointing loss was his runner-up finish behind Authentic in the Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5. “He beat 14 or 15 other top 3-year-olds in the...

Which Was Better: The Movie Or The Book? A Debate For The Ages. Here’s TPM’s June Reading Recs

I’ve come to the conclusion that the outside is overrated. There, I said it. I know it’s June and I know summer is just getting started, but why spend your days sweating it out in the humid, hazy outdoors when you can be inside with the A/C pumping? I’m a homebody, so maybe that’s what’s underlying my opinion here. Like I said, it’s June, and despite my love of cool, filtered air, I do hate that we’re still in the same place as we were last month. Silver lining: we do have a new book list for...

Ottawa Senators’ Coaching History

Ever since the Ottawa Senators entered the NHL, they have had many head coaches. Far more than should be expected for a team that is barely 25 years old. In total, the franchise has had 13 coaches in their history, from their first coach in 1992-93 to their current man behind the bench. On average, the Sens have had a new coach every two seasons. The longest-tenured, and winningest coach was only behind the bench for eight seasons. With the long list of coaches, the Senators have had quite a...

The At Home Interview

from Cathal Kelly of the Globe and Mail, The other day, Ron MacLean had one of these home-studio chats with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. Each man was propped in front of a laptop in their comfiest “I haven’t given up yet” outfit. Though this wasn’t meant to be a fight, whatever it was was unfair. MacLean has the advantage of understanding how television works. The camera was angled above him, lengthening him. The lighting was soft. He did the interview whilst sitting in a book-l...

The Relationship Between Law, Private Enforcement, Social Pressure and “Snitching”

As it has with so many of our regular practices, the coronavirus crisis has highlighted or brought to the fore the advantages and disadvantages of the relationship between the law, private enforcement, social pressure and “snitching” in enforcing desirable social practices. Law requires legislation, regulation or by-laws, whether in public or private contexts. Private enforcement means a private actor downloads requirements to those using its services. Social pressure may work through personal ...

Devils’ Top 10 Goal Scorers of All-Time

The New Jersey Devils have had more than a few Hall of Fame-caliber players come and go over the years. Most people will associate greats like goaltender Martin Brodeur or defensemen Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer with the team. But they’ve also had more than a few high-level scorers who played a hand in shaping the franchise’s history since they relocated to New Jersey from Colorado in 1982. Here are the Devils’ top 10 goal scorers over that time.  1. Patrik Elias — 408 Goals Elias...

Whicker: John Beilein the latest to learn that NBA, NCAA share little but leather

Nine months ago there was no more respected college basketball coach than John Beilein. Nine months from now you might be able to say the same thing. As of now, Beilein joins the battered list of those entranced, and capsized, by the NBA’s siren song. At 66 he ended his 12-year tour at Michigan to become the coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. After they lost 40 of 54 games he walked away from the rest of his contract. Beilein and Michigan were in the 2013 and 2018 NCAA championship games. His pla...

Two Tales About the Rule of Law

A recent opinion piece in the National Post by Leonid Sarota and Asher Honickman explained how the rule of law functions: it constrains government and when people perceive it to overstep, they can challenge it; but it also requires individuals to restrain their actions and use the legal sysem and when they are unsuccessful, they must accept it. As they say, “The rule of law does not, by itself, guarantee justice, but without it just laws cannot be upheld and unjust ones peacefully reformed.” Her...

The Need For Civic Protest

Protest is meant to bring a reality that lurks beyond the sight lines of most people crashing down in front of them. When resistance to the current order arises, citizens are put to the test. We are forced to reveal where our allegiances lie. What are we willing to support, or do, in the pursuit of rightness and justice? – Maclean’s
