Kelly: On the outside looking in, John Daly joins merchants outside Augusta - The Globe and Mail
Published Friday, Apr. 10 2015

Daly’s ruminating about his career.

“I wish I would’ve played better in that ’96-to-2001 window. I wish I would’ve practised on my game the way I do now,” Daly says. “My problem is I didn’t say no. Went everywhere. Took the money. Wasn’t able to sit back and take the time to practise for a whole week. I kind of let my game falter.”

For a few years, John Daly was probably the most typical American allowed through the Augusta gates. But that’s done now. Like most of the rest of them, he’s back on the other side of the fence.

Kelly: The future looks bleak for MLSE – and all its teams -

After a couple of days of pointedly time-sensitive denials, the news that Tim Leiweke is leaving as president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment...Mr. Leiweke brought two things that cannot be pulled from the air by a new CEO, regardless of how competent – connections and a single-minded drive to put his personal stamp on every part of a business.

Kelly: Sports scribes take themselves seriously at their own peril - The Globe and Mail
The Globe and Mail
Published Monday, Jul. 28 2014

Hitchens was a very good writer, but he was a truly great debater. He thought in logical arcs. He was ruthless. Most of all, he was preternaturally articulate.

Regardless of whether you were his target, it was very nearly a physical pleasure listening to him talk....There is a species of this debate that can be fun to take part in or listen to. Reasoned, friendly, inflected with humour and – crucially – the knowledge that none of this is actually very important. A good sports argument is the sort you have with a friend and, eventually, agree to disagree over.

A while ago, someone on the broadcast side of this business asked me how I would change sports radio if I could. I said I’d make it a little more thoughtful and a lot less angry. I think I mentioned This American Life. He looked at me with the sad solicitousness we reserve for the simple-minded....This is the ne plus ultra of where we’ve been heading – a culture of sports argumentation so divisive and compulsively contrarian, it no longer has anything to do with sports. It has no idea what it’s about. Its only requirements are brute force and volume.
