MIKE BURKE Allegany Communications Sports I offered a snide aside here yesterday about Tom Brady never going away, clearly not knowing he would choose first thing the very same morning to announce he was going away.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Communications Sports The perception is the Baltimore Orioles have not had a productive offseason following their surprising 2022 when they stayed in contention right up to the final week.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Communications Sports Truthfully, Scott Rolen did not ring in my mind as a Hall of Famer; he never has. Frankly, neither does Fred McGriff, with whom Rolen will be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame this summer in Cooperstown.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Communications Sports Well, it’s like this: Last week for #NFLTheTVShow’s Divisional Round (I call it the second round), I was 3-1 on winners and 2-2 playing the points, which can be viewed as respectable, but, frankly, I find the 2-2 on the points to be a complete and utter failure.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Communications Sports Mark Twain said, “Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” That’s pretty much the take of just about everybody when it comes to what Baltimore Ravens free-agent quarterback Lamar Jackson wants to make on his next contract, what the Ravens want to pay him on his […]
