With Independence Day approaching, let's look at our Founding Fathers. There were many. But for now I'll focus on three; John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.  Adams was "obnoxious and disliked." This description is his...

Cavaliers 93, Warriors 89. Not quite believing it, I continued repeating the score, again and again. But it was a lot closer. With about a minute to go, the game tied at 89, Kyrie Irving made a 3-pointer over the head of Stephen Curry. With their...
