The Spurs tough season continues, and the injury bug has continued to bite the team. In fact, it is beginning to look like San Antonio may be the unluckiest team in the league. Tony Parker is now out for the second time this season, this time with bone spurs. Parker missed several games in December with a sprained ankle, and this time is expected to be out until after the All-Star game. It’s not like the guard position is one in which the Spurs are particularly deep. They did recently sign Damon Stoudamire, but in his 12th year in the league, he is certainly on the tail end of his career, and has not put up particularly stunning numbers in quite some time. Manu Ginobili is an All-Star at the G/F position, but…

The Spurs choppy season continues, and as the team struggles to overcome the injury bug and regain its championship form of last season, San Antonio finds itself sinking in the standings. A team who possessed one of the best records in the league during the early part of the season, now finds itself in third place in one of the most competitive divisions in the NBA. The good news is that San Antonio finally has everyone healthy and can now focus on regaining the chemistry that has been lost.
San Antonio is 3-2 over their last 5, with the three wins coming over Minnesota, Philadelphia, and Charlotte, the NBA's version of the Sisters of the Poor. The two losses were against stiff competition—Cleveland and…

For struggling NBA teams, there's nothing like visits from the New York Knicks and the Memphis Grizzlies to set things right. The San Antonio Spurs are struggling with injuries, and Manu Ginobili continues to remain on the bench with a sprained finger. Since Christmas, San Antonio is 3-2, and struggling to maintain its lead in the division. Just one game back are Dallas and surprising New Orleans, who seem to be waiting for a Spurs’ slip. Houston, who was expected by many to challenge the other Texas teams, remains seven games back, and are struggling to stay at .500.
The day after Christmas, the Spurs hosted the Chicago Bulls, and were the first lucky team to face them after axing their coach on Christmas…

San Antonio is a city that enjoys two things, and does them both well: keeping itself clean, and throwing a party whenever possible. If the two can be combined, then all the better. Knowing this, it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the city, that the Mud Festival does just that.
One of the city's most interesting and bizarre events, the Mud Festival takes place each January for one week, and commemorates the draining and cleaning of the river. Early in San Antonio's history, the river was thought to be dangerous, dirty, and was even declared off-limits to military personnel for a time. Today, these ideas have softened quite a bit, as the River Walk is now a world-class tourist attraction,…

San Antonio is many things: a vibrant cultural city; a growing technological center, and a sporting capital. It’s also home to a wide variety of shows and contests that are based in the city’s Wild West roots. The annual San Antonio Rodeo, started in 1950, has long been a favorite of residents of South Texas, and has grown in popularity such, that today over 1 million people attend each year. In the 40s, the Joe and Harry Freeman Coliseum was built to house the rodeo and show, and served this capacity well until the AT&T Center (formerly known as the SBC Center) was opened in 2003. Since then, the rodeo has been located in San Antonio’s most modern and comfortable sporting arena.
This year’s event will take…
