Top 10 Sports Questions and Thoughts of 2013

Here are the top stories of the year.

10) Jason Collins announces he is gay. Would have had a bigger impact if was still playing, no?

9) Mariano Rivera retires. As much as I despise the Yankees, I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about the “Sandman.” He is easily a first ballot Hall of Fame player. Great closer ever?

8) The year of "a lack of evidence." From Johnny Manziel to Jameis Winston, there were plenty of legal cases that fell flat due to a lack of evidence in sports.  

7) Alabama loses to Auburn on a missed field goal that was returned for a touch down. Wow! You could make the case that it was the greatest play in college football. 

6) The Miami Dolphins bullying scandal. The allegations, the text messages, the phone calls, the teammate’s lack of action, and fans initial reactions made this the most polarizing story of the year. Was it over the line? Was it tough love? Who knows?

5) Oscar Pistorius and Aaron Hernandez arrested for murder. Speechless. 

4) The NFL agrees with formers players on a $765 million concussion settlement. Current players are calling the league “soft,” older players are having major medical issues and suffering. Some have even committed suicide. Such a nightmare.

3) Lance Armstrong admits that he cheated. So many people thrown under the bus, careers ruined by his cover up attempts, and his charity, that did great things, is now left in the mud… all over an “everyone else was doing it” excuse. Pathetic. 

2) The MLB PED suspensions. Biogenesis may be the wakeup call MLB needs. Players like Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez have shown that the current anti-PED system is a joke. Add in the fact that suspended players are still getting massive contracts upon their returnn show just how much the whole system needs to be changed. Every other sport has gotten a handle on it, why not MLB?

1) The Boston Marathon bombing. Words cannot express the shock and anger over this tragedy. The courage and pride Boston showed afterwards was just amazing and awe inspiring. I wish I could say more about it, but only two words seem to fit… BOSTON STRONG!
