For those who can't get enough hockey and particularly those who might consider it a future career, the upcoming Hockey Business Career Conference on June 29-30 at the Marriot Marquis hotel in Times Square is worth a visit.
Jason Collins came out to near universal jubilation, with hundreds of supportive social media messages, blog post, and TV commentaries. Everyone was supportive – at least publically. But the reality of the gay rights battle in sports is more murky.
Billy Beane believes the regular season should crown baseball's champion. There should be no World Series. Strictly speaking, Beane only said that regular season achievements should be recognized by more than a playoff berth.

About a month ago, I wrote an article trying to tease out who the number one team was in college basketball. It's safe to say the season hasn't exactly gone to plan thus far – there's not a single dominant team, and everybody can lose almost every night.

I'm on my way to South by Southwest (SXSW); otherwise known as the world's largest geek tech festival. SXSW is one giant party, Texas-style – with brand new gadgets and Star Wars helmets thrown into the mix.

If your a Hockey fans or not, if you haven't heard, the Chicago Blackhawks have recorded a point in 24 straight games to start a season (which is already an NHL Record). If that wasn't enough, if you go back to previous season, the Hawks, (yes I say the Hawks because I'm a life long fan from Chicago), have recorded a point in 30 straight games, which is good for the second longest streak in the history of the NHL (35 is the record by from the 1979-1989 Philadelphia Flyers at 35), and are also riding a 11 game winning streak.
