LAMM AT LARGE: When sports are at their most beautiful

LAMM AT LARGE: When sports are at their most beautiful

By: David Lamm Perhaps the real beauty of sports is it’s the one endeavor where our biggest challenge can be ourselves. It’s when competition to win comes from within. When there are no opponents to conquer. No championships to win. It’s the toughest possible challenge, trying to be better than we think we’re capable of…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars draft deserves high marks

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars draft deserves high marks

By: David Lamm It won’t take long to know just how good the Jaguars draft class is.

LAMM AT LARGE: Masters Sunday is special – the most special

LAMM AT LARGE: Masters preview

LAMM AT LARGE: Masters preview

By: David Lamm The arrogance is so thick you can cut it with a Georgia butter knife. The tradition is so pronounced you’d think its members still lived in the 19th century. The rules may seem silly, but they are rigidly enforced. There are so many reasons not to like August National Golf Club, its…Continue Reading »
