reviewed Montreal Canadiens. February 14, 2013
Montreal Canadiens
We all know Canada is, along with Scotland, one of the most important ancestral homes of hockey. It's where the game as we've come to know it today was developed into modern form and perfected. …
reviewed Chicago Blackhawks. February 13, 2013
Chicago Blackhawks
Looking at a list of NHL teams, one can't help but wonder: Where are all the teams in the pacific northwest? It seems like a perfectly natural area for hockey to thrive, after all, being so close to Canada. …
reviewed Columbus Blue Jackets. February 12, 2013
Columbus Blue Jackets
So its come down to this: There is actually an NHL team residing in Columbus, Ohio. How did this happen? Did Gary Bettman think this was just an untapped gold mine? Was he banking on the idea of Zombie …

Buffalo Sabres
The National Hockey League in Buffalo. Now really, this should have been obvious right from the very beginning. Buffalo is still known as one of America's snow capitols. Professional hockey was naturally …

Houston Astros
The state of Texas can never seem to catch any real breaks when it comes to getting new professional sports teams. The NFL, which is iconic in Texas, didn't show up until the Houston Oilers and Dallas …

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Baseball didn't exactly zoom right out to the west coast once it became a major sport. For decades, westward expansion to Major League Baseball meant maybe putting a new team in Kansas City. The barriers …

Washington Nationals
The big question about the Washington Nationals is, why did they choose to call the team the Nationals at all? Washington had TWO baseball teams depart, after all: From 1901 to 1960, there was an American …

Seattle Mariners
Seattle has a history in baseball that is somewhat unique. Like most of the other west coast teams, they had a history in minor league baseball before trying to land a Major League Baseball team when …

San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres seem the odd duck when they're compared to their California baseball brethren. They're the only California team which has never won the World Series (although they do have two Pennants, …

Milwaukee Brewers
Milwaukee's pride in its beer is one thing I don't believe I will ever come to understand. I've certainly had some damn good microbrews that came out of Wisconsin (Spotted Cow), but Milwaukee is home …

Kansas City Royals
Kansas City is regarded by both insiders and tourists as one of the most underrated cities in the United States, for any reason. The city has a famously lively food scene, rich music and sports histories, …

Toronto Blue Jays Logo
Toronto, Ontario is a fine city. Loads of attractions, very pretty, friendly people, money to be made, high quality of life, film industry giant, Toronto has it all. That being said, I guess I can't blame …

Minnesota Twins
It's totally normal now that when we think of the Minnesota Twins, we think of them only as the Minnesota Twins and not anything of their past as the Washington Senators. The Twins organization has done …

Tampa Bay Rays
When you mention the Tampa Bay Rays to a baseball fan, it usually only evokes one response: The question, why? Given a few moments to think up a different reaction, the baseball fan will usually follow …

Pittsburgh Pirates
It goes without saying that today's Pittsburgh Pirates are bad. Hell, yesterday's Pittsburgh Pirates were bad, and the day before too. As of the 2012 baseball season, the Pirates have now gone through …

Atlanta Braves
I really hate the history of baseball before the modern era. It tends to screw up the continuity of my teams series. How many teams have I written about so far that can be considered the oldest continuously …

Baltimore Orioles
Who are the Baltimore Orioles? There are a thousand different ways to answer that question. It has something to do with the fact that constant city-shifting can take a real toll on the history of teams …

Cincinnati Reds
People seem to like retro things a lot these days. Retro styles, retro cars, retro clothes, or at the very least, imitations of things that are retro. Even in sports, a lot of spectators seem to pine …

Colorado Rockies
Some team names just seem obvious. Some of them are so obvious, they get overused to such an extent that people get sick of seeing them, no matter how geographically obvious or appropriate they may be. …

Arizona Diamondbacks
In 1998, the Arizona Diamondbacks took the baseball diamond for the first time. In 2001, they won the World Series. And, review!    What? Just that won't do? But the Diamondbacks haven't... …

Philadelphia Phillies
It's remarkable to me that the Chicago Cubs somehow get the all-time loser reputation, along with the Boston Red Sox until 2004. The former's first half of their existence is littered with Pennants, and …

Oakland Athletics
"Loser" is not a word we throw around. In baseball, we certainly wouldn't dream of applying it to a team which has won the World Series nine times, a number surpassed only by the Saint Louis Cardinals …

Cleveland Indians
There are times when I think the whole mythology of baseball is built on its curses. The Curse of the Bambino ran from 1918 to 2004. The Curse of Coogan's Bluff ran from 1954 to 2010. The Comiskey Curse …

Detroit Tigers
Ty Cobb's reputation as a racist is a wee bit more overblown than it should be. I realize that to a lot of critical theorists who can't look at Tony the Tiger without spotting racism, I'm …
