Lance Armstrong has gotten a lot of heat for his doping confession, and rightfully so. We believed in him, raised him as our champion, and he betrayed our trust through the use of performance enhancing drugs. We could leave it at that, but it’d be unfair to someone who worked so hard, trained so long, […]

Since March 2, 1951, The All-Star Game has been a fixture in the National Basketball Association. It has pitted the top twelve players of the NBA Eastern and Western Conference against each other in a mid-season exhibition game. It’s an honor to be selected as an All-Star- it’s recognition from the league’s Coaches, Managers, Players […]

The 2013 campaign is over. Best case scenario, the Lakers squeeze into the playoffs and lose in the first two rounds, the Western Conference Finals if there’s a miracle. For a team with two more years of Kobe Bryant and an all-star squad full of potential, this is a failure. With so much talent on […]

Manti Te’o is the latest athlete to be outed as a creative deviant, clutching onto the childhood convention of imaginary friends long past its accepted expiration date, but he is by no means the first to have such a fantastic crutch. It is a long tradition for the most stressed, expended minds to swing towards […]

It was a interesting year for sports and while not all moments were those we’d prefer to remember, few can doubt it was a good year to be a sports fan. Well, expect for NHL fans at the moment. That being said, I’m going to break down the year into three categories and review what […]

I’m going to be honest from the very start, I did not watch very much of this year’s NBA finals. I could barely watch five minutes of it without feeling the urge to blow chunks. This season, ripe off a very bitter lockout, the finals came together with what I could clearly say was the […]

Here we have two General Managers: Bryan Colangelo for the Toronto Raptors and Brian Burke of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Both GMs are going to be pressured to make a big splash in the off season to push their respective teams closer to being a contender rather than the pretenders they’ve been for the past […]

This is where My Entertainment World synergy comes in handy. Our most recent Sports Superstar of the Week (My Sports) is the subject of the latest 10-minute-musical from Stratford Shakespeare Festival company member Kevin Yee (My Theatre). Thus, dear MyEntWorld reader, you should enjoy this:

If you haven’t heard of the Knicks’ new superstar by now you clearly haven’t been paying much attention. The 23-year-old undrafted Harvard grad (3.1 GPA in Economics, by the way) has taken the world by storm in a way that no sports star has since, I don’t know, Tiger Woods maybe? Maybe Tebow, I guess, […]

The Lebron saga has been hashed, rehashed, debated, analyzed so much that I almost feel bad adding to the endless space on the internet already devoted to the subject. This is way past beating a dead horse; it’s been beaten to death and then beaten again until the corpse is mutilated beyond recognition. But that […]

If you’re a basketball fan, or even a sports fan (which I’m assuming you would be, since this is a sports-related blog) you’re aware that this summer’s class of NBA free agents is considered by many the most talented in the history of the league. This abnormal concentration of talent through free agency has given […]
