Nick Wright’s 4 Favorite Things About The 4th Of July

The boss has asked me to list my four favorite things about the 4th of July. (Get it, 4 things because it’s July 4th. I’m sure this numerical alliteration delighted him when he thought of it. Like I said, not the brightest bulb.) As it turns out, the 4th actually is maybe my favorite Holiday, so I agreed. And, here we are.

Greatest performance in a losing effort: Tim Howard among best ever

The list has been an easy one — inarguable, in my opinion, for years.

Three athletes always have stood at the top when it comes to transcendent feats and performances in what ultimately was a losing effort: Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Mike Scott.

Each deserved a better result, instead ultimately having to settle for a tip of the cap and a place among the greatest near-misses in sports history.

Time For Perspective On World Cup Popularity

We want aggressive violent action, not the over-dramatic flopping of a four year old girl who’s overtired and cries of lifelong physical impairment because her older sister brushed flesh. Offer that girl a cookie and suddenly it’s “what pain?!” Soccer encourages this melodrama as if contact with an opposing player will require life-flight and most likely an organ transplant. But give that team the ball and suddenly it’s “what injury?!”

The Extra Pass: Where the 2014 Spurs rank among NBA’s greatest unselfish teams

Run the offense. Defend. Check your ego. And, always — ALWAYS — make the extra pass.

These 2014 NBA champion San Antonio Spurs most certainly will rank among the greatest teams in NBA history. Exactly where you put them in the pantheon depends on personal preference, likes and the value of individual greatness: Shaq and Kobe dominance in the early 2000s? Hakeem’s Dream Shake of the mid-’90s? The great Celtic dynasty of the ’60s or the Showtime Lakers of the ’80s?
