Christopher C. Wuensch: Writing For The Internet

Have Franchise, Will Travel

With a heavy, metallic clamor like that of a locking prison door, the gate of the moving truck slams shut. The smell of diesel fumes licks the air as the U-Haul fires up its engine and rattles down the road. Before long it disappears onto one of America’s many clogged arterial highways. And you’re left […]

Designated Twitter: Verifying the Game’s Greats

Pete Rose is familiar with the scorn that accompanies being jilted. The sting of exclusion is still certainly fresh for Jim Rice — despite the backing of 6,521 people. Think less Cooperstown and more Twitter-verse. It’s here where a player such as Los Angeles Angels’ sophomore third baseman Mark Trumbo — with his 6,498 fewer career hits than Rice and Rose combined — has something […]

Goodbye Dodgertown

Years after breaking the hearts of Brooklyn, the Dodgers packed their bats and gloves and relocated once again, this time eschewing Vero Beach, Fla., home of Dodgertown, for the desert of Arizona… IT’S IMPOSSIBLE to surmise the history of Major League Baseball’s Dodgers without using the term “heartbreak.” Perennial bridesmaids, the Dodger’s and their fans championed […]

Life On Her Feet

It was down a quail-riddled cul-de-sac in the Northwest, aptly named Magic Place, where Jessica Cox grew up like any other kid – a dancer at age six, high board diving daredevil as a teenager and a two-time black belt by the time she finished college.

Slier Than The Fox

There’s a biting cold to the morning as 40 foxhounds nervously scour the frost-laden ground at Palmetto Bluff’s Longfield Stables. Something is out there, but their horse-bound masters won’t allow them to jaunt off to find out exactly what lurks in the nearby wilderness. For now, they’re confined to a tight pack and allowed to […]

Food For Sport: You Are What You Comp-eat

I like to think that Arizona track-and-field jumps coach Sheldon Blockburger is a good time at barbeques. Or that, at the very least, he’s got splendid cholesterol levels. I suspect pancake blocks in football aren’t as delicious as they sound. And I’m quite certain that I never want to eat a bat donut — be […]

Gnome Sweet Gnome

There are many times in a man’s life when he’s forced to choose sides. Democrat or Republican? Sharks or Jets? Fries or coleslaw? We spend the entire schoolyard-kickball game’ that is our lives choosing sides. When it comes to either enslaving a dwarfish race of garish Earth-dwellers or abetting their trollish ways, one is best to […]

Alone In The Woods

It took some clever posturing but Vijay Viswanathan finally settled himself into the hunting blind located on an 8,000 acre quail-hunting plantation on the outskirts of Yemassee. To an unsuspecting deer, the demure blind looks like nothing more than a 5-foot tall, robust shrub. For Viswanathan, it’s a voluntary, 4-foot-long by- 5-foot-wide prison and the […]

Horsing Around on Hilton Head

Horse racing returns to the beaches of South Carolina after a 42-year hiatus. “AND THEY’RE OFF” Bluffton Today: Feb. 24, 2009 By Christopher C. Wuensch … Ashley Lowther sat atop his horse Strawberry with a confident yet disarming grin that suggested “this cowboy’s got some beach bum in him.” Behind him, the tidal waters had […]
