Boston Says ‘Nope’ to the 2024 Games

wsj.com — Boston didn't want the Summer Olympics. OK, that is not totally accurate: Some Bostonians were excited for the city to host the Summer Games in 2024, just not enough of them to, you know, give the idea popular momentum. Boston never became gripped with Olympic fever, not even close.

Bike Brakes for You, but Not the Pros (Yet)

wsj.com — One cool-slash-geeky aspect to watching the Tour de France is that the weekend rider at home can ride exactly what the pros ride. Those magnificent carbon-fiber machines currently ascending Alpine switchbacks? Most of them are available for a consumer to buy.

The Buzz About Motors in Cycling

wsj.com — Is it evil that I kind of want to see somebody get caught? Just to see what all the fuss is about? Just to watch the authorities saw a $10,000 bicycle open like Jaws on the dock to see what's lurking inside? I love the sport of cycling, but I can't be the only one who's curious.

Why the Super Bowl Should Be Free

wsj.com — How much would you pay to see a Super Bowl? Last week, the Journal's Matthew Futterman reported on the National Football League's plan to raise ticket prices for its upcoming New York/New Jersey Super Delicious Possibly Freezing Outdoor Snowfall (or Perhaps Sleet) Bowl. Actually, raise is too generous a word.

Caitlyn Jenner and What Courage Means

wsj.com — It is not insignificant that when Caitlyn Jenner spoke in public last week, she spoke to a room full of jocks. Jocks like herself. The best, the champs, the stars, the MVPs. The unchallenged A-side of the American cafeteria, on another night they are lavished like royalty. Those ESPY awards?

Can One Tweet Make You a Better Golfer?

wsj.com — Against all my better judgment, I am playing golf again, and the situation has gotten out of control. I'm trying to squeeze in rounds when I can't squeeze in rounds.
