Although Colby Men’s Lacrosse ended their week with a 2-2 record overall, it fails to do the team justice and does not capture how well the Mules have played lately.

Warm Sports Takes: Fastballs of Dreams

I may be in the minority, but I love a good 3-1 baseball game. There’s good pitching on both sides, tense situations with runners on base, and ultimately some timely hitting that puts one team over the top. In the 2014 season, a 3-1 game became commonplace, as 4.07 runs were scored in the average MLB game last season. That […]
