Charlie's Inside Corner: June 29

The Kansas City Royals finally crawled up to the .500 mark for the 2017 season this past week, only to fall back a notch or two. Surprising? Not really. Didja know that our Boys in Blue are playing at about the same winning percentage that they have throughout their major league history? Yes, all-time the Royals winning percentage is .482, so if you are a gambler, you'd best put your money on the Royals finishing below the .500 mark.

Charlie's Inside Corner: June 23

Sports are rife with great motivational speeches. Coaches are legendary for their fiery pre-game and halftime speeches that fire up and inspire their athletes to achieve what might have been considered impossible. Vince Lombardi, Knute Rockne, Bobby Knight, Lou Holtz and, yes, even Roy Williams and Bill Self come to mind. Of course, one of the greatest motivational cheerleaders of all time wasn't a coach, but a leader in battle, General George Patton, but then, wouldn't he have made a terrific and ferocious football coach?
