Dew Tour, Welcome, Podcast, Sweep?

This might be a little fractured, but it’s all of the things (minus the stuff I’m certainly going to forget) that need to be addressed on this heat-of-a-thousand-suns Sunday morning. First, the Dew Tour has been mentioned in the comments a couple of times and I’ve been meaning to get to that. The bad news […]

AST Dew Tour Coming Back to Baltimore

You might remember last June when I spent a fair amount of time covering the Panasonic Open. It didn’t get a whole lot of press, but I’d argue it was as intense and professionally contested as anything else in town last year. I enjoyed the hell out of it. And I plan to do so […]

A Silver Lining

The Ravens lost, the Red Sox won, but there is some solid Baltimore news today: hometown hero Bucky Lasek skated off with the top spot in today’s PlayStation Pro event in Orlando, Florida. Some of you might remember the cover story I wrote for PressBox earlier this year, highlighting Lasek and the Dew Tour in […]

The Cal Ripken induction, the trade deadline, the constantly developing Michael Vick and Tim Donaghy stories, NFL training camps opening up, a weekend series against the hated-but-surging Yankees…the next seven days could very well be news-rich. That, and I’m going to […]

2-0 Socks in the Second

Panasonic Open Wrapup

I didn’t spend as much time at the Panasonic Open as I would have liked. I only attended on Saturday, and the only event of consequence that I witnessed was the skateboard vert finals. The reason I chose that one event, of course, is tied directly to Dundalk native Bucky Lasek and my recent cover […]
