  • Ramsey: Boston taxpayers revolt against Olympic tyranny

    Blame Vladimir Putin. The citizens of greater Boston revolted against the 2024 Olympic Summer Games. They revolted because of costly Olympic disasters of the 21st century. The 2004 Athens Games helped launch Greece toward national insolvency. The 2008 Beijing Games cost $44 billion. Putin spent $51 billion - give or take a billion - on the...

  • Ramsey blog: Former Air Force star Antoine Hood chases highly unlikely NBA dream

    Former Air Force star Antoine Hood is clinging to his highly unlikely - highly, highly unlikely - quest to play in the NBA. Here's the story from The New York Post: http://nypost.

  • Ramsey: Wes Welker should retire to protect his damaged brain

    In America, we're free to do what we want, as long as it's legal. Doesn't matter if we're foolish. Doesn't matter if we're self-destructive. › This freedom means the Kroenkes can pay Danilo Gallinari, aka Mr. Mediocre, $17 million a season to play for their Denver Nuggets. That's foolish. › And this freedom means Wes Welker can choose to take...

  • Ramsey: Air Force's Pilipovich must read teen minds, and that's not easy

    Kamryn Williams nearly abandoned the Air Force Academy. He's glad he remained. He arrived at the academy in 2011 as a basketball-first teen. He helped lead Sierra to consecutive state 4A titles, largely because of his laser-like focus on the game. He was forced to widen his view when he moved from family home to military academy. He had to...

  • Ramsey blog: Jurgen Klinsmann deserves to remain US soccer's head man

    I'm not a Jurgen Klinsmann fan. He dismissed Landon Donovan from the U.S. team competing in the 2014 World Cup for mostly personal reasons. Donovan would have been a highly effective and dangerous sub. Klinsmann waved goodbye anyway. So it's tempting for me to call for Klinsmann's dismissal after Wednesday's stunning 2-1 loss to Jamaica....

  • Ramsey: Sky Sox liberated from Rockies, but not liberated from losing

    Manager Rick Sweet arrived at Security Service Field at 7:30 Wednesday morning. He had endured a tough loss to the Nashville Sounds on Tuesday night. He didn't want to endure another defeat. He worked on a video of Tuesday's mistakes to show his players. Sweet is a baseball lifer, a survivor of thousands and thousands of games, but he's not...

  • Ramsey blog: Nuggets overpaying Gallinari, big time

    What happens to an NBA forward who struggles to rebound, partially because of effort, and shoots below 42 percent and plays for a losing team? Answer: He gets a $34 million, two-season contract extension. The Nuggets believe Danilo Gallinari can be key piece of the franchise's future revival. I see him as a key piece of the team's...

  • Ramsey: Mike Gould welcomes renewal of Air Force-CU football series

    For those who believe time has somehow stood still, Air Force's football trip to Boulder in 2020 will deliver disappointment. The Falcons will play the Buffs, and the game will be...like other games. CU students will conduct themselves...like students at Michigan, Oklahoma and Colorado State. In the lively imaginations of some Air Force fans,...

  • Ramsey: Clutch defense allows Switchbacks to salvage tie with Seattle Sounders 2

    A disappointing second half was about to become even more disappointing for the Colorado Springs Switchbacks. Oalex Anderson, a forward for Seattle Sounders 2, had burst into the open. He had an open path to the goal. The Switchbacks were in serious trouble. Rony Argueta rescued the Switchbacks, allowing the team to salvage a 1-1 tie. The...

  • Ramsey blog: Stabler was the anti-Peyton Manning (He said so)

    Kenny Stabler, who died earlier this month, was a superlative quarterback at the height of his career.  He completed 66.7 percent of his passes in 1976, which might not sound that dazzling until you consider the NFL average that season was 52.7. (Defenses are currently defenseless against the pass. The average in the 2014 season was 62.6...
