The only NFL Playoff predictions you need

It’s the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, so of course you’ve turned to for the only NFL playoff predictions you need whether heading to the sports book or your high stakes family pool.  Read ’em and bet the mortgage. Seahawks/Falcons-Matt Ryan is getting tons of MVP mentions this offseason, but, of course, the […]

Monday morning notes from Sunday in the National Football League

A few scintillating observations from yesterday’s day in the National Football League.  As you know, I’m the only person writing about the NFL today. Lions QB Matt Stafford is the kind of leader every team wishes it had.  He seems to be constantly (and legitimately) injured, yet plays through it all.  Oh, and by the way, […]

The NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” experience

They (and don’t ask me who “they” are) say that tonight’s Cowboys/Vikings version of the NFL’s Thursday Night Football should be a good game due to, among other reasons, the fact that both teams have had a full week off since having last played on Thanksgiving. So does that explain it?  Does that explain the lousy […]

Really important thoughts from the sports weekend that was

A lot has happened over the past several days in sports, so I know you’re wondering just what I’m thinking about the Thanksgiving sports weekend.  Right?  Alright, since you asked, here are a few really, really important thoughts from the past few days: Michigan and Ohio State played an epic (I guess?) game in Columbus […]

Being that it’s, you know, Thanksgiving, what better time to list five things every guy should be thankful for?  You’re absolutely right, there is no better time.  So here we go. 1) Your wife/girlfriend/some girl you really like who barely knows you exist.  Yes, that’s right, we all need to acknowledge the superiority of the […]

In honor of the Chicago Cubs

  I’m not saying the following video is from the recent World Series, but, you know, I’m not saying it’s not.  Just watch and enjoy this little ditty of a “long-suffering” twentysomething Chicago Cubs fan living the drunk life in the Wrigley Field men’s room, just maybe during this year’s series:   It’s only fair […]

Five extremely interesting things to know with November here

Well, would you look at that!  It’s November.  Or, as I like to think of it, “the month which ends in sheer, joyous gluttony”.  And football.  So without further ado, following are five things you absolutely have to know this weekend. If you’re fifty or younger, you’re not a “long-suffering” Cubs fan.  No, sir.  You […]

The weekend that was in sports

I wouldn’t say it was a spectacular past few days, but here are a few observations from the weekend that was in sports: Well, will you look at that, the Chicago Cubs are in the World Series.  What’s in been, 8, 10 years?  Seriously, though, it almost brings me to tears thinking of all those […]

Pitino, Rose, and Brown: A sports trilogy of terror

Pitino, Rose, and Brown.  Sounds a little bit like a highly respected law firm.  Yeah, not exactly.  Really quite the opposite.  More like a triumvirate of worthless crap.  (Is there any other kind of crap, really?) Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino didn’t know anything about the strippers/hookers who were provided for his players needs.  Of […]
