Tripple Overtime

Tripple Overtime: Bragging about awards is so lame… but I’m gonna do it anyways

I wish I could be as cool as Bob Betram. You know — the Coastal Point ad-design guru that always had the funny job descriptions under his name on the editorial page of the paper?

Tripple Overtime: Only Twitter can destroy the city of Baltimore in 140 characters or less

Twitter. What a wonderful thing it is — allowing people to express their every opinion publicly and freely as soon as it’s formed.

Tripple Overtime: What’s in a name? Don’t ask Shakespeare, ask the Lady Indians

I was standing there at Indian River High School, watching the Lady Indians take on Milford last Friday night... until I realized that I wasn’t.

Tripple Overtime: You LOLZ’ing at me? Are you LOLZ’ing at me?

Almost every week, I turn over the dangers of social media as a potential Tripple Overtime subject before I ultimately decide that it’s 2015 and we all know that we’re supposed to whatever and blah, blah, blah, and save us the speech because we all know it by heart.

Tripple Overtime: The Shorebirds are the only birds when you’ve got ornithophobia

I was very much looking forward to spring. I was very much looking forward to Shorebirds baseball and peanuts and Crackerjack and the cracks of bats and blah, blah.

Tripple Overtime: I hope you’re ready for spring sports, ’cause they be sprangin’

You know how, every once in a while, a television show will just show clips from previous episodes because the writers are too lazy to come up with a new one? You gotta just hate that. Where’s the creativity? Where’s the originality?

Tripple Overtime: Wintertime rewind:Top winter sports moments

I was an hour late for work last week, which can only mean one thing (aside from the fact that I forgot about daylight-saving time again): Spring sports are upon us.

Tripple Overtime: Only Phill can save us from a ‘The Grey’ type scenario this coyote hunting season

If you’re like me, you know who Phill is and you’ve seen the movie “The Grey” featuring the incomparable Liam Neeson.

Tripple Overtime: What the woo woo, Larry?

I have never quite fully understood the true meaning of Indian River basketball super-fan and unofficial ambassador of the student section Queen Bratton’s “What the woo woo?” chant until last Friday night, when Delmar’s Larry Ennis miraculously sunk not one, but two buzzer-beating three-pointers to force triple overtime (which I heard was a pretty good column in the Coastal Point, by the way) and eventually lead to a 95-91 victory for the Wildcats.

Tripple Overtime: Lady Indians finally get a lax program? It’s about time!

One of my first summer jobs ever was selling hotdogs on the beach in Fenwick. It was great. I got to take skim breaks, eat free hotdogs, and even call out when the waves were good, because the owners were pretty cool. Plus, I was really good at it. I only wish I could be half as good of a writer as I was a hotdog salesman.

Tripple Overtime: Who’s ready for the ‘Pro Bore’ this weekend?

Before you say anything about how “Pro Bore” when referring to the Pro Bowl isn’t my best work when it comes to wordplay — cut me some slack, I just got over the flu.

Tripple Overtime: Ducks, Bucks end BCS quackery with ‘January Madness’

Clearly the NCAA hasn’t seen any of the Terminator movies because for more than 15 years they let a computer system run the show with what they liked to call “The BCS” playoff system. And much like the decision to cast Arnold Schwarzenegger in the film, and his eight-year stint as the governor of California, for that matter, the end result was pretty terrible.

Tripple Overtime: New Year’s resolutions fit for ESPN’s Top 10

Every year I make the same New Year’s resolutions. This year, I’m going to volunteer more. This year, I’m going to eat healthier. This year, I’m going to write more interesting columns and not turn them in at the last minute before press deadline. But, just like most New Year’s resolutions, they never seem to pan out.

Tripple Overtime: Tribe pride on display with new Indian River student section

Seattle has the 12th Man. Cleveland has the Dawg Pound. South Africa has those weird vuvuzela horns they used during the World Cup. And now, Indian River High School has their own official student section cheering on the Indians this basketball season.

Tripple Overtime: Oh, really, Obama?

I don’t usually bring up politics. Partly because this is a sports column, but mostly because I twice failed “Introduction to American Politics and Government” during my one-year stint at community college. In my defense, I didn’t go to class very often because I was busy surfing, which is a sport, and considering that I’m now a sports reporter, I’d say it all worked out for the best.

Tripple Overtime: Ten things I learned about Bali

Well, 62 hours of traveling, one broken board (thanks a lot, American Airlines), one gnarly scar from hitting the reef on my second day, and about 100 Bintangs later I’m right back in good old Sussex County and ready for basketball season.

Tripple Overtime: I’m pretty ‘hype’ about this Bali trip

So I’m leaving. On a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be back again.

Tripple Overtime: To RGIII or not to RGIII, that is the question

Washington Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden had a decision to make going into last Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Start the quarterback with the hot hand? Or the one with the $21 million contract?

Tripple Overtime: Is Percy Harvin a height supremacist?

There’s been a lot of speculation this week as to why the Seattle Seahawks decided to trade wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets — much of it being based off of rumors, hunches and whatever else Adam Shefter says.

Tripple Overtime: Playoffs!? Playoffs!? Actually, yeah — let’s talk about playoffs

It’s that time of year again. And, no, I’m not talking about the time of year when the leaves start changing colors and the days start getting shorter. I’m talking about the time of year when sports pundits start breaking out references to former NFL Head Coach Jim Mora’s famous “Playoffs!?

Tripple Overtime: Maybe NCAA athletes should get paid, but Jameis Winston should stop being such an idiot

I was fully prepared to put something together on my buddy Phill’s top 10 favorite sports-related Halloween costumes for this week’s column. Then I heard Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s name on ESPN, which, obviously, could only mean one thing — he’s done something stupid again.

Tripple Overtime: Is Petyon Manning the best Papa John’s spokesperson/ quarterback of all time?

Everyone knows Peyton Manning from his brilliant acting in Papa John’s pizza commercials, but what you may not know is that he’s also a pretty good quarterback.
