About

 

My name is Colin Ward-Henninger. I am a sports writer that has always taken an interest in the absurdities of athletics. I’m currently a freelance journalist doing work for several different websites.

I use my blog to call attention to all things ridiculous, and usually humorous, in the sports world. If you like what you see, please leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.

    Hey Colin,
    Nice blog! I’m starting a blog on the Buckley website myself…
    I’ve never been a fan of Clemens’, so if this is all true, it makes me giggle, although I do agree with you that it belongs on Access Hollywood and not in the sports page!

    Hi Colin-

    Following up to your recent post on the Celtics’ win and the Doc Rivers Gatorade dunk – many people have wondered what did Doc do with his clothes?

    Well, we thought you’d appreciate this great story about his Gatorade soaked shirt and cooler from the first ever Gatorade dunk in the NBA, which generated $55,000 for charity. Below is a clip of Bill Parcells calling in to a Boston radio station on behalf of Gatorade to place a bid for the memorabilia. Parcells was the recipient of the first Gatorade dunk in 1985.

    Parcells’ surprise appearance on WEEI kicked off a furious round of bidding. When the dust settled, Gatorade stepped aside to let a passionate Celtics fan place a winning bid of $35,000 – but Gatorade tossed in an extra $10,000 donation for the Celtics Shamrock Foundation. Another fan, spurred on by the exchange, later added $10,000 to bring the total charitable donation to $55,000.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,
