Delta serves as tough challenge For anglers

The other day while I was reading through some online fishing forums, I came across a picture of a new bass boat that was rigged with a 400 horsepower outboard motor. That's easily a 90 plus mph boat! Most bass boats rigged with an engine over 200 horsepower can run in the 70s. I can't imagine what a boat with 400 horsepower can run.

Warriors so good, they’re turning rivals into fans

When Byron Scott forgets he's a coach of a rival team, just focuses on the game he loves, he can't help but be impressed with the Golden State Warriors.

Can Warriors Get to 33-0 and Break Another Record?

The Warriors have won their first 16 games of the season, which is ridiculous. So talking about them doubling that streak is doubly ridiculous.

Still much work ahead for undefeated Warriors

Congratulations to the Warriors for going 16-0 out of the gate. Let me express my overriding sentiment about the achievement in two words:
