Lowell Cohn's pertinent and impertinent take on sports
I will be on Comcast at 5 pm dispensing a few pearls.
Went to the movies in Berkeley today to see Wolf of Wall Street. The Oscars are starting soon and I had not seen that movie. I give it a “B.” Interesting premise. Interesting to look at. Way too long. Leonardo DiCaprio was adequate. I can imagine some actors doing better. I don’t think this film should win the Oscar but you never know. FYI, I went to the movies by myself. I like to do that. I started out as… Read More »
Just arrived in Arizona for six days covering spring training. It’s in the low 80s and dry and tomorrow I talk to ballplayers and this is the life. I think this is spring training No. 34 for me, although I may have lost track. Grant is with me and this is his third. Who has a better ballclub, the A’s or Giants? I lean toward the A’s.
Sid Caesar died. He was a comic genius in the early days of TV. I loved Sid Caesar. Go on YouTube and watch two of his skits, “The German General,” and “This is Your Story.” God love you, Sid.

I am reading Chaim Potok these days. I love Point Richmond. Everything is two stories or fewer and there’s no traffic and things… Read More »
Raining outside my door. Never thought I’d love rain so much.
By now, Richard Sherman has apologized multiple times for shooting off his mouth after the NFC title game. He said you don’t make yourself big by making the other guy small. He said he spoke in passion. All that stuff. As far as I can tell — correct me if I’m wrong — he never took back what he said. That Michael Crabtree is mediocre and sorry. Which means he stands by his opinion, just doesn’t stand by how he… Read More »
Are you suffering from allergic symptoms — stuffed nose, sneezing, the works? Naturally, I caught a cold freezing in Green Bay. But I’m OK now except for the allergy stuff. I think it’s allergy stuff and not another cold. It has something to do with this false spring we’re in. Are you in the same boat as me?
