Twice in a span of five days, Manning's attention to detail was on full display, from scripting his own celebration of his record-breaking touchdown throw against San Francisco last weekend to calling out an overly exuberant scoreboard operator during Denver's 35-21 win over San Diego on Thursday night. He also didn't appreciate the way Philip Rivers was shown on the jumbo screen to draw jeers.

    The Percy Harvin trade from Seattle to the Jets generated a lot of commentary late last week, as it should have. The swap has the potential to generate waves in a variety of dimensions. The Jets’ organization is not particularly stable about now. Rumors and intrigues swirl around the head coach and the GM; the team is 1-6 and its “quarterback situation” is not exactly in a tranquil place. With no direct knowledge of Percy Harvin, let me just say that press reports indicate he might not be the easiest person to get along with. If he helps the Jets win a few games, he will be seen as a…

  • Not everyone see’s what makes Peyton Manning the best

    GB Bongiovanni
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:58 am
    Despite the news you hear, it’s not the record-breaking performances, stats, or winning records that Peyton Manning’s legacy should be judged on. What makes Peyton Manning the greatest quarterback ever to play in the NFL are the little things. Things that not every fan may notice. To many, it’s his accomplishments they will focus on and the upcoming records he could break. Odds are the allpro will break these records in only a matter of time. Manning is now under 5,000 yards, 1,500 pass attempts, and 600 completions short of Brett Favre for all-time passing records.

    I do not think there was a single person come Sunday night that expected Brett Favre to remain in possession of the career touchdown pass record at game’s end. I have always liked Peyton Manning as a person and as a quarterback, and that is how I will talk about him: as a person, and as a quarterback. Manning is not an unstoppable captain of a team prepared to steamroll the remainder of their opponents. He is one of the best quarterbacks ever, yes, but even his latest achievement does not make him the greatest of all time. Using one word for each of his touchdowns, here’s…

    Michael Vick will be forever judged as a man full of mistakes. A star-studded NFL player who made wrong choices along his career path. Michael Vick’s latest mistake might be the biggest one of his professional career. After five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick had his choice between the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  At 34 years old, none of the teams saw him as a starter. Plus, his history of injuries have prevented him from playing more than 13 games in a single season.  Instead of a starter, teams were looking for depth and…

    This week the “winner” gets $25 instead of $10! Huzzah!

But not that white, you know? He’s just painfully white. It’s over-the-top white. It’s, like … okay, Eli. We get it. You’re white.

Therefore, we have taken it upon ourselves to design several fair and rational tiebreakers to be used in the event that records alone do not produce a representative who will get smacked around by Florida State in the ACC Championship. (Please note that these tiebreakers do not account for ECU kidnapping Pitt and demanding their place in the Coastal.

    Each year you hear about teams and coaches having slogans and such to describe their teams or players, and how they are playing. For example in 2011 the Giants had a theme and slogan of “All in”, based on a poker saying. The 49ers have used “Who’s got it better than us? NOBODY!” except the Seahawks, Ravens, and Giants have proved them wrong three years running. Well now other teams are getting in on the fun and using their own team slogans for the year. Here is a small sample. I’m open to making another set of these so give me your best ones.

Additionally, sporting events offer a worthwhile sponsorship opportunity to marketers who want to reap the benefits of being seen by attendees. Unfortunately, getting started won’t be easy – nor will it be cheap. After initial costs and plans are laid out, there’s even more to think about in terms of hosting, promotion, permits, zonings; and the list continues on. If you think you can handle all the dilemmas that may (and probably will) arise, you’re ready to host your own sporting event. Sporting…

Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience.

    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup.

  • Often Overlooked, Nick Vannett and Jeff Heuerman are Valuable Weapons in Ohio State's Offense

    Tim Shoemaker
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:15 am
    The Roman philosopher Seneca is credited with saying, "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." By that definition, Ohio State redshirt junior tight end Nick Vannett got lucky Saturday, when he had two touchdown catches in the Buckeyes' 56-17 win over Rutgers. Vannett wasn't even supposed to be on the field during the plays on which he scored — it was supposed to be fellow tight end Jeff Heuerman. But when Heuerman took himself out of the game prior to each scoring play, Vannett stepped in. The rest, as they say, is history. “He got a little tired so he came running off…

A year later, Ohio State finds itself in a similar situation.

Overall the Cougars were 17-17 - their best finish in many years.It couldn't have come at a better time for coach June Daugherty, who was in the last of a seven-year contract. Thus, even with a 73-146 record in Pullman, she got a five-year extension. Daugherty's luck continues with her 2014-2015 roster.WSU lost only one…

  • The WNBA doesn't need to consider using anti-tanking measures for the draft lottery

    23 Oct 2014 | 5:08 pm
    The Philadelphia 76ers NBA team's rebuilding strategy has caused enough ire for the league to consider Draft Lottery reform, though it failed. There is no need for the WNBA to do the same. Tanking in the NBA has been a subject of debate, in particular during the 2013-14 season when multiple teams, most notably the Philadelphia 76ers were rebuilding themselves in anticipation of a draft class which was headlined by Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and Joel Embiid.   The 76ers in particular have rebuilt their roster not only with youth, but also with minimum contract-level players who…

    Tweet I’m always on the lookout for new, out-of-the-box ticket promotions, so when I got this email campaign from Rutgers, it definitely peaked my interest. Essentially, if you purchase a ticket at the “UWin” price for the first non-conference men’s basketball game, you get a free ticket to the next home game, and you can continue to get free tickets to each subsequent non-conference game as long as Rutgers wins. Historically, Rutgers men’s basketball has not been a very competitive program, so this is an interesting way to drive interest in these early…

You get the dialogue below between myself and Brian Connolly, a former MBA classmate of mine and founder of Victus Advisors. Here is our take on ESPN’s suspension of Bill Simmons. Brian: First of all, let me preface this debate by saying that I’ve never been much of a “respect authority” and “toe the line” guy. There’s a reason I started my own company! So that side of me always gets a kick out of a public figure challenging the powers that be.

    James Mirtle
    8 Oct 2014 | 4:04 pm
    Here goes nothing. I'm not predicting who wins shootouts or not, so this is regulation points only. Add in six points to every team if you want to give them all an average number of shootout wins. Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

After undergoing a dental procedure a woman woke up and began to sob, saying she expected to be Nicki Minaj when she woke up. “I just wanted to be her when I woke up.” The man at her bedside replied, “you’re still pretty though,” to which the woman retorted, “not like Nicki.” It appears that the woman is just feeling the effects of some pretty thorough post-op drugs, and she continued on to detail exactly what she envisioned in her…

  • Sox 99 – Division Series

    Michael Passanisi
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:41 pm
    The Red Sox ended the 99 season as the AL wild card, riding a hot September to finish 94-68. They finished 4 games behind the Yankees and 7 ahead of the Oakland A’s, their top WC challengers. It was the most wins for Boston since 1986. The Sox were paced by two men with tremendous seasons. Pedro Martinez went 23-4, capturing a unanimous Cy Young. He accomplished the pitchers’ triple crown, topping the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts. Pedro was first or second in 11 league pitching categories, and set an AL record with 13.2 strikeouts per game.  Nomar Garciaparra won the…

    12 Oct 2014 | 9:02 pm
    With the season over, the final Sox offensive stats are in, and they are not good. 634 runs (11th in the AL). 123 homers (12th), a .316 OBP (8th). a .369 slugging percentage (14th). 1337 strikeouts (a club record). a .237 average with runners in scoring position (last in the league). The stats are more baffling when you examine the 2013 totals, including 97 victories and a World Championship. The team was picked in spring training for 90 wins and ended up with 71. A recent Peter Abraham piece in the Globe cites several factors. The team’s inability to replace free agents Jacoby…
  • Sox 99 – September Hot Streak

    Michael Passanisi
    8 Oct 2014 | 5:18 pm
    The Red Sox continued as one of the hottest teams in baseball as September unfolded. They first took 2 of 3 from Cleveland, owner of the best record in the majors. In a battle of hot-hitting clubs, the Tribe prevailed in the first constest 11-7 before over 43,000 at Jacobs Field. The home squad went up 8-1, but had to hang on as Boston continued to pound the ball. Starter Tim Wakefield surrendered 9 hits and 8 runs in 4 innings of work, with homers by Kenny Lofton and Richie Sexson. The Sox countered with 4 in the sixth on round-trippers by Trot Nixon and Mike Stanley. The clincher came in…

    As is his style, Dan Shaughnessy had a rant last weekend on the state of the Red Sox. “Nobody’s mad at the local nine, ” he wrote. “After all, they’ve won the World Series three times in 10 years and they won it last year…everybody is happy just to enjoy another day in America’s most beloved ballpark..” “Fenway fans, ” he goes on, “don’t mind paying the highest ticket prices in baseball to watch the Pawtucket Red Sox stagger across the finish line in the basement of the once-proud American League East.” I have a few…
  • Young Pitchers – Don’t Judge Yet

    Michael Passanisi
    1 Oct 2014 | 7:34 am
    How have the Red Sox young hurlers done since THE TRADES? If you go on stats, not very well. Through Saturday, Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman, Anthony Renaudo and Allen Webster have made 49 starts. Their record is 12-23 with a 5.06 ERA and only 6 strikeouts per 9 innings. The latest disappointment is De La Rosa, who has faded badly after a good start. But numbers do not tell it all. Between them, the four hurlers have 19 quality starts. Though not a huge number, it shows they have had some good moments. Another factor is the length of their seasons. Of the four, only Workman has put in…

    Emre and the boys get ready After holding Arsenal to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, there’s no question that Hull City travel to Anfield this weekend believing that they can get something against a faltering Liverpool side. The Reds have had an eventful week; after barely scraping past last placed Queens Park Rangers in the capital, a midweek humbling against reigning European champions Real Madrid gave not only their fitness levels, but their fragile confidence yet another blow. While it doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to picture these two sides coming…

    We’re this much better now While much of Liverpool’s pre-match press is sure to be dominated with their post-match hangover following yesterday’s loss to reigning European champions Real Madrid, Hull City go into Saturday’s meeting on a decidedly different narrative. Last weekend’s draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium came as a bit of a shock — and not so much that they got out of London with a point to their names. Not only did they lead for much of the match, but the Tigers also quite easily absorbed whatever pressure their hosts were able to muster;…

    Ranker – Lists About Everything When Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho swapped shirts with then Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o at halftime last season, Kopites everywhere expressed their disgust with the French center-half. With under-fire striker Mario Balotelli pulling the same stunt as he walked off the pitch with his side 3-0 down, reactions have been, understandably, in the same vein. “We will deal with it,” Reds boss Brendan Rodgers said after the final whistle. “We had an incident with a player last year and we did it internally. It is not something I stand for. If you…

A magical opener from Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo after a set the visitors on their way after enduring a barnstorming opening 20-minutes from their hosts, but there was nothing glittering about the following two goals as the Reds once again showed their vulnerability to set-plays and direct football — much to the disappointment…

    Lowlights? Yeah, we got those. There was a point in and around the 65th minute when, after cutting Liverpool’s defense open far too easily with a mesmerizing passing move, Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema shared a chuckle with his team-mates after coming within inches of helping his side add a fourth goal. At times it was just that easy. Following an opening twenty minutes in which the hosts pressed their Spanish guests with the kind of gusto one would expect from a team managed by Brendan Rodgers, a moment of brilliance from Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a sublime effort…

The first thing that makes golf a great sport for betting on is the fact it is played all over the world and there are games being played almost the entire year. The European tour currently runs from January to November and takes in countries from all over the world including South Africa, India and Australia.

    Brett Austin

    Real Salt Lake has this knack of making themselves the underdog. In doing such, they suddenly find that switch that turns themselves into a very dangerous team. In 2013, the talk was that RSL’s run as an elite was coming to an end. At the end of the 2012 season, they shipped out many starters that forced many to consider that RSL was going into rebuild form. RSL found themselves in the MLS Cup Finals. 2014 starts and we have a new coach. Long gone is our most successful manager, Jason Kreis. His right hand man, Jeff Cassar, has taken over coaching the club. And the fans showed their…

    Week 9: BYU vs Boise State What a roller coaster ride of a season the BYU football team is having. The season started out with so much promise but has quickly turned ugly for the Cougars. Yet, after losing three straight games there are a few bright spots. The offense put up some big numbers and scored 35 last week, which should always be enough to win. Injuries have decimated the team and the defense just looks bad. Really bad. Throughout the week I have been reading a lot about how the defense needs to shape up. I agree with those feelings but some other areas of the game could also improve…

    At Mississippi State University, one of the most unique symbols of the school’s tradition is the cowbell. Cowbells are ubiquitous at Mississippi State football games, where the collective clanging of these instruments can become deafening—so much so that, in recent years, fans have been asked to “respect the bell” and “ring responsibly.” The school even has a whole website dedicated to proper cowbell etiquette. It appears, however, that not everyone has been minding their manners as of late. The cowbell cacophony reportedly has never been louder than it was…

  • 3 Tips For Transitioning Sports From One Season To The Next

    At CoachUp we’re strong believers in playing as many sports as possible when you’re younger (so long as you’re limiting yourself to one sport a season). However, one of the more difficult parts of playing multiple sports is transitioning sports from one season to the next. Depending on your age and competition level, you might end up missing some captains’ practices or even preseason practices. This can put you in catch up mode from the get-go and put you even further behind those who are concentrating on just one sport. Here are three tips to help make sure you start every season in…

    Things are starting to take shape in the NFL, as Dallas' defeat of Seattle substantiated that the Cowboys are the real deal, at least to this point in the season. In a division that was thought to be one of the weakest before the first game was played, we now find two NFC East teams at the top of the NFC, with Philadelphia joining Dallas at 5 - 1. In the other conference, San Diego has emerged as a contender to Denver as the class of the AFC.

There is no doubt that High School football is becoming more competitive and exciting to watch.  The skill level of many High School athletes is increasing as more private coaching and access to online training are readily available.

    With several races coming up, I thought I would share my thoughts on the benefits of having people there to support you at a race.  One of the things that makes big races fun is the vast amount of spectators.  The masses of people bring huge amounts of energy to a course. I definitely loved the spectators this year at Boston, they were excited and they were loud.  However, if I had to pick a marathon I have done that I would say had my favorite crowd, I would pick Chicago without a doubt.  There was literally not a moment on the course when there weren’t rows and rows of people. …

    “When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.” I have wanted to write this blog for weeks. Finally I decided to reach out to the parents of Michael Sloan and ask if they minded if I wrote a little bit about Michael’s story, and they graciously agreed. Watching him persevere over the last two months or so has been so inspiring to me. Not only watching him actually, but also watching the love and dedication his mom and dad have shown to him has touched me tremendously. I also wanted to share some…

    Diane Chesebrough
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:05 am
    It’s Dallas Week in Washington, D.C. and, as always with the U.S. capital’s home team; the goings-on in Ashburn are keeping everybody on their toes. The 6-1 Cowboys and 2-5 Redskins play on Monday Night Football this week and the big storyline is what quarterback will be in the offensive huddle. Starting quarterback Robert Griffin, III has begun practicing with the team in a limited fashion, healing from a dislocated ankle. First back-up, Kirk Cousins was pulled from the game at half-time last week versus the Tennessee Titans after losing the ball twice in the first half. Second backup,…

On any given play, fans saw brilliant design and execution or baffling mistakes and lack of discipline. It was like seeing a live version of the book Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For anyone who doesn’t remember, Dr. Jekyll is the main character’s good friend. Mr. Hyde is his evil alter ego.

    srpatterson
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:56 am
    The Ohio State Buckeyes moved higher to number 12 in the coaches poll after routing Rutgers Saturday in the Ohio Stadium. The poll released Sunday is disappointing to Buckeye fans who are looking to move into one of the top spots before the season comes to an end. Rutgers wasn’t much of a challenge for OSU who finished the game with an impressive 56 points only allowing the Scarlet Knights to score 17. The BCS no longer includes the Coaches poll in calculating who plays for the National Title at the end of the year so it is irrelevant for the most part.

For Tommy Paul, one of the nation’s top teen tennis players, the net demarcates the psychic space of strategy, mental toughness, and a place where his dreams are fulfilled. “He has always liked to compete, and he hates to lose,” explained Tommy’s mother, Jill MacMillan.

Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process.

    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

    Last week the St. Louis Rams converted a fake punt and a fake punt return, which helped them get a win over the Seattle Seahawks. In sports, I enjoy watching trick plays and teams mislead their opponents into thinking they are doing one thing…then throwing them off by doing something completely different. All too often in life, however, we mislead with our motives and intentions when we say one thing and mean something else. By acting fake and tricking others, we are heading down a path of destruction. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 12:22 says, “Lying lips are an abomination to the…

  • MLB Draft Disasters

    admin
    23 Oct 2014 | 8:09 pm
    The 2014 MLB draft saw one of the memorable draft incidents occur in recent memory. The Houston Astros went into the draft coming of a 70-92 season, a 19-win improvement on the year before, with the No. 1 pick With their No. 1 pick the Texan outfit opted for 17-year-old Brady Aiken out of San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic High. In theory, signing the high school left-arm pitcher made sense. The Astros hierarchy likened the 17-year-old to legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, believing that he was the perfect man to centre the rebuilding of Houston on. However, after using their No. 1 pick…

    I’ve been keeping myself quite busy over the last few weeks. First of all I’m back on training after I recovered from North Shore Marathon, but more - we’ve planned a trip for 3 weeks in a row. I must say, it is little challenging to manage training schedule while traveling, but I think I’m getting better at it ;).

    This post was in my backlog for a long time, but there was always something more important to do. Meanwhile I’ve moved around the world and raised my fitness to the point it has never been before, my blood results were never better and my VO2Max sits around 60 (which is great considering almost 10 years of smoking). But, couple of years ago I got scared a little and had my heart tested.

It was stopped for customs clearance and I needed to pay duty on it (first time!) and had to chase post office to give me informations about the state of delivery multiple times. Few days before North Shore Marathon it arrived. And it was worth waiting for!

Before Saturday, Stephen Weiss hadn’t played in an NHL game since December 10th. The past two years, he’s missed 66 percent of the games his team has played in. Most of that is due to injury, but Weiss is only 31. All accounts say he’s finally healthy and has plenty of energy. There just isn’t a spot for him.

Games in this league are…” Caldwell shook his head. “…are, uh, are crazy.” When it was 23-10 I was sitting with a friend who had grown up a Lions fan but had moved out of state. He still paid attention, but became apathetic to actually watching the games. “At a certain point they have to show me something,” he told me. This game was not that.
  • Red Wings rumor roundup: The latest on Tyler Myers and a list of some other defenseman Detroit has interest in

    Every Sunday I’ll bring you a recap of all the legitimate Red Wings-related transaction and signing rumors from the previous week. I see all this stuff anyway. I figured I might as well share it with you. • The Red Wings inquired about acquiring Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers, according to TSN’s Elliotte Friedman. The Sabres wanted Anthony Mantha. Detroit said no. Talks fizzled after that. TSN’s Darren Dreger told a Toronto radio station that he expects Myers to be moved, but maybe not any time soon. TSN’s Bob McKenzie also said that Detroit was one of many asking…
  • The Book On: Gustav Nyquist, the worst shootouter in Red Wings history

    Mike
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Gustav Nyquist is the absolute worst, and he’s extending his lead. Despite being one of the Red Wings’ most skilled players this side of Pavel Datsyuk, Nyquist’s shootout numbers are the lowest ever seen in a Red Wings uniform. Before Nyquist came along, no Red Wing had more than four shootout attempts without a goal. Nyquist is 0-for-6 after missing the net against Boston on Wednesday. Among those who have better shootout numbers than Nyquist: Tomas Holmstrom (1-for-4), Niklas Kronwall (1-for-2), Patrick Eaves (2-for-6) and Drew Miller (1-for-2). Nobody really needs the…

Rob Nelson, a pitcher at Nassau County Community College and at Cornell University, partnered with former teammate and baseball notable Jim Bouton to launch the product in the 1970s. Nelson played with Bouton on the Portland Mavericks in 1977, an independent team founded by Bing Russell, the late actor and father of Kurt Russell, and grandfather of former big leaguer Matt Franco.

Those soldiers had to keep occupied on the island just off the coast of the North Fork, so they took to open land and played sports.

Forbath has made seven straight field goal kicks — including yesterday’s game-winner — since his terrible 33-yard miss in Philadelphia back in week three. For the season Forbath is 11 of 12 on field goals [91.7 percent].

I remember my father possessing a Kimber which has always been very dear to his heart.

We had initially zeroed in on the plain-Jane version of Old Slabsides from Springfield 1911 pistols. But while doing our online research on the subject, we found Kimber proclaiming: On the…

    This is a big question: which optics should you choose for your long range weapons? The first thing that you do on picking up a rifle scope is to look through the reticle and put it on target. While we are discussing about the long range shooting, it is important to note that these involve shooting targets at unknown distances and even while on the move. This kind of shooting is found in both military and sports. Whatever the field of application, the most important requirement for this type of shooting is the rifle scope.

    admin

    The most essential quality in the hunting rifle is that it should be reliable and suitable for the owner. Thus, a prospective buyer should make a list of possible models and then visit his or her local gun shop and try each. Keep the rifle on your shoulder, operate the action, switch the safety on and off, dry fire the rifle. Then buy the one that fits best. Stock fit and ergonomics are important, so if a recommended rifle does not fit you, do not buy it. Even the best rifles in the market, like, the Kimber hunting rifles, should be tested prior to purchase. Although a number of hunting…

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:09 am
    The NBA season, like a Stockton-Malone pick-and-roll, always arrives on time. To prepare for the next 1,230 games (All-Star festivities excluded), we took each player’s projected Real Plus-Minus and wins above replacement, calculated a total for each team, and ran 10,000 simulations of the NBA schedule to divine likely records and championship odds.1 We’ve split the teams into the lower and upper tiers in each conference; these are the eight teams that will likely make the playoffs from the West. (We previewed the West’s lower tier here.) So fill that Kevin Durant-sized hole in your…

    23 Oct 2014 | 8:50 am
    On Sunday night, I put out a call on Twitter for burning NFL questions. Among the responses, some guy asked:@skepticalsports: Is Peyton Manning the best football player of all time?— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) October 20, 2014Whoa, boss. This is a question for which everyone seems to have an answer, but about which few people have anything new to say.Assessing how good someone is at something is easy if that thing is directly measurable, like running 100 meters, or is independent enough to be measured over time, like hitting a baseball.

  • The Playoff Implications Of Every Game For Every NFL Team

    Mike Beuoy
    16 Oct 2014 | 9:33 am
    “Playoff Implications” is a phrase you usually don’t hear until the final weeks of the NFL regular season, but almost every regular season game has playoff implications. In the early going, however, it can be difficult to figure out just what those implications are, and how much is riding on each game.Most other major sports leagues play a greater number of regular season games, and thus the playoff picture in those sports evolves in a more incremental fashion. The pace can seem glacial at times for MLB, and inevitable and foregone when it comes to the NBA. But with just 16 regular…

    Dallas (EVEN) @ New Jersey The Devils head into tonight's game with three straight losses.  Dallas on the other hand is 3-1 in their last 4 with their only loss coming in overtime to the Flyers.  The Stars' offense has been rolling lately, scoring 18 goals in their last 4 games.  New Jersey on the other hand has only found the back of the net 9 times the past 4 games.  Dallas should keep things rolling tonight on the road against a slumping Devils' team.Tampa (-120) @ WinnipegTampa's been struggling to produce consistent scoring lately but they've still found ways to…

    San Diego (+9) at DenverI had to check this line three times to make sure it was correct. Even after all that I still don't know if I believe it. Sure Denver looked like the best team in the league last Sunday night in their demolishing of the squad formerly known as the 49ers, but the turnaround is going to be way too hard on them. Couple that with the fact that they had one those classic Peyton on prime time type games and you have all the makings of a letdown game. I think that Denver still manages to find a way to win this game, but getting 9 points with the Chargers offense is basically…

People are questioning how good this Isles team really is.  Boston on the other hand, is in the opposite position heading into tonight.

    After a 3-2 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Edmonton Oilers are 1-4-1. Even though Edmonton got their first win of the season, is it enough to kick start a season that will lead them to their first playoff appearance since the 2005-2006 season when they lost to the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 in the Stanley Cup Final? In most cases, getting a win after a lengthy losing streak can possibly turn the course of a season around. This may not be the case for the Edmonton Oilers.

The ride is balanced, and allows the foot to make full contact with the ground at both slower and faster speeds. While not necessarily a “minimalist” shoe by purist definition, the RR allows for plenty of ground feel on both the road and packed dirt surfaces. Because of…
  • Tiger Tail Rolling Muscle Massager Review

    Endurance Sport
    3 Jul 2014 | 8:00 pm
    Like many runners, from the hobby jogger to the elite, I spend numerous hours a week on tending to various knots and soreness in my legs. I owned various therapy devices, lacrosse balls, softballs, foam rollers, you name it I had it. The foam roller that I previously owned was too soft and at the time I was not looking to spend $70- $80 dollars on one of those fancy shmancy new foam rollers. So I got online and started reading about various other types of massage therapy and decided to purchase the Tiger Tail. Tender “knots” in the muscle can prevent full range of motion, while causing…

    Convicted dopers Justin Gatlin and Tyson Gay go 1-2 in the Lausanne Diamond League Meet. 9.79, 9.93 Just 1-year after testing positive for PED’s, American sprinter Tyson Gay runs 9.93 in his season opener in Lausanne. With such an impressive opener, there was only one athlete who could challenge Gay, and that was Justin Gatlin (convicted doper), who crossed the line in a near world-leading time of 9.79 This was an impressive return for Gay that begs the question, “Was 1-year a long enough suspension?” Gay returned to competition an entire year early because of his…

  • Royals Redeem Themselves and Take Game Two

    Sarah Davis
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:25 pm
    After Wednesday night’s disappointment, this game was exactly what Royals fans needed to forget about their team’s ugly loss in game one of this series. Like in game one, tonight’s game got off to a rocky start, but after allowing a leadoff home run to former Royal, Gregor Blanco, Ventura settled down. The final run given up by Yordano came in the fourth inning on a Brandon Belt RBI-double. The young rookie finished his night in the sixth inning after allowing Buster Posey and Hunter Pence to reach on singles. Young Yordano ended with a line of 5.1 innings pitched,…
  • Finally Some Competetion!

    Walker
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:05 am
      After winning 8 straight games in the postseason, the Royals have finally found a little competition.  The San Francisco Giants, and Madison Bumgarner finally landed a postseason punch on the Kansas City Royals, a feat no other team can boast.  And it was no jab to the body they landed but a well placed upper cut to the jaw. It will be interesting to see how the perpetual underdogs will react to this initial onslaught. Here are some take aways from the game that I noticed. First: Shields<Bumgarner.  James Shields is a really good pitcher, and is a HUGE reason why…

    This is it, boys. This was the game that was supposed to get things rolling. Forget the undefeated playoff run. Forget the walkoff knocking the Cardinals out of the World Series. Forget it all. Everything starts over, and the better team wins. Tonight clearly showed that the Royals are not the better team. This game made my head hurt. Between yelling at James Shields, who apparently didn’t think this game was big enough, and yelling at the offense, who appeared to have gone full-blown 2012 Royals, I no longer have a voice. First of all, Shields did horrible. No sugar-coating needed.

    World Series Game One I haven’t written anything since the end of the ALCS. After attending game four and witnessing the end of the sweep I got teary eyed and didn’t leave the stadium for nearly two hours. I didn’t have a game log. I took my good friend’s ten year old son and had an absolute blast. When Moose corralled the last ground ball hit by JJ Hardy and fired it over to Hosmer I think I hugged half of section 413. As the Beatles Kansas City blared from the stadium speakers I couldn’t believe what I was watching. The scoreboard kept flashing AMERICAN LEAGUE…

    The Kansas City Royals are returning to the World Series once again.  In reaching the playoffs for the first time since 1985, the Royals have found a way to stir up ghosts of October past. Using speed and pitching, as well as combining both of those aspects with a great defense, they have found ways to beat the Goliaths time and time again. The big hits from the favored Angels and Orioles may have been struck, but they were never allowed to find grass. And that is only if you managed to do it in the first 6 innings. With a dominant bullpen anchored by the big 3 in Wade…

    SEATTLE- Fan favorite and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman has been under no police scrutiny after a murder was committed in Seattle on Sunday. Neither Sherman or Goodell will reveal specifics or if they even had a phone call causing media to draw conclusions about what kind of conversation could have taken place. Some media believe that a good story would be if one of the most liked players in the NFL did something illegal and called the league commissioner to try and decide the best course of action to cover it up and the two acted in mutual interest to preserve finical interests of…

    Matt Williams is showing himself to be an amateurish rookie manager. After inexplicably removing pitcher Jordan Zimmermann during Game 2 on the NLDS, a decision that’s justifiably being seen as an embarrassing lapse in judgment, the foolish manager took heat. Forget the heat though. Now he’s squarely in the furnace. With the Washington Nationals season ending in upsetting fashion, players were giving the media their final post game interviews of the season. That is, every player expect for Zimmermann. As Zimmermann approached his locker and signaled that he was ready for media questions,…

    Through the first quarter of the 2014 NFL season, certain statistics pop out. Peyton Manning, once thought to be out of football after neck surgery, is better and stronger than ever, nearly setting the league record for passing yardage against Arizona and closing in on Brett Favre’s touchdown record. Matt Ryan, never considered the strongest of quarterbacks, has had record-setting days against the Saints and the Buccaneers. The Dallas Cowboys, ordinarily the league standard for mediocrity, lead the NFC East due to the normally-fragile DeMarco Murray’s unexpectedly strong play and the…

    bignbeefy
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:40 am
    It’s always a long off-season for the A-League. And what makes it even worse is that we have to wait nearly 2 months after the Europeans kick off and wait patiently for the more traditional “Aussie” sports to wrap up their playoff series before Round 1 can commence. The Victory had recruited unbelievably well in the off-season, but it would remain to be seen what Kevin Muscat (the world’s dirtiest player) would do with his gameplan. Melbourne have played the past 2 years without a central striker, preferring 2 wingers instead (yes, still doesn’t make sense does it??) and have…

    After seven matches, the Premier League’s table is beginning to take its usual shape.  Chelsea is at the top, followed by Manchester City, with Manchester United is not far behind at fourth.  The only odd member in the top four is surprisingly Southampton who sold more than £100 millions worth of talents in the last transfer window. I don’t think they will last long though and I do expect Arsenal to complete the top four come May next year.

    To me, former Manchester United player, Phil Neville, was foolish when he said that the Red Devils must spend £100m to be title contenders. Neville was obviously referring to the weakness in United’s backline that need to be addressed after thee 5-3 defeat at the hands of newly promoted, Leicester City. He told BBC Radio 5 Live: I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100m – before they can even think about winning the title. There are still key positions in the team that need filling. I think the centre-back position is obviously…

    By selling Danny Welbeck to direct rival, Arsenal, Louis Van Gaal has certainly put his reputation on the line. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wengner seem to think that the England striker is a quality player. Sir Alex even choose Welbeck ahead of Wayne Rooney during their Champion League match against Real Madrid a couple of years ago. Van Gaal however, has a different opinion about Welbeck. The Dutchman decided that Welbeck is not good enough for United and happy to let him go for just £16 million. Many fans don’t think it a wise idea. Just £16 million to a direct rival?

    UFC fighter Yolo Romero created quite a stir at UFC 178 with what some are calling “stoolgate” as the fighter refused to get out of his stool following the second round, allowing himself time to recover.

Romero clearly intentionally took more than the allotted time to get up from his stool, and his coaches took their sweet time instructing their fighter to get up.

Bought for £800,000 from Norwich in 1987, he and partner Gary Pallister formed the rigid backbone of a United side that ended a 26 year wait for the league title. Ever dependable and unmovable, they soaked up enormous pressure, which allowed the likes of Cantona, Giggs, Scholes and Beckham to work their magic further up field. Bruce went on to make over 400 appearances for the Red Devils and…

    Ron Harris3. Ron Harris795 times Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris turned out in the blue of Chelsea during the 60s and 70s, yet not once was he called upon by England. Feared as one of the hardest players in an era that included the likes of Tommy Smith and Norman Hunter. Ron Harris was the bedrock of a defence that oversaw Chelsea‘s first F.A. Cup, League Cup and Cup Winners Cup victories. Being only 22 at the time of the 1966 World Cup, Harris’ omission from that stellar tournament is no surprise, but England’s failure to qualify for four successive major tournaments in the 1970s really does…

  • Vikings’ Offensive Line Holding Back Bridgewater, McKinnon

    Thompson
    19 Oct 2014 | 3:24 pm
    The Vikings’ defense played admirably despite a last-second, game-winning touchdown pass from Kyle Orton, Sunday. They forced four turnovers, and the Vikings offense could only muster 16 points in the loss. Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN and the Star Tribune has been pretty clear that rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is to blame for the anemic offense. He even wrote that Bridgewater’s performance against Detroit, the NFL’s top-ranked defense, was identical to Christian Ponder’s performance against Green Bay, the NFL’s 19th-ranked defense. Last time it was…

    I had a 20-hour bus trip ahead of me, and I wanted to be relaxed for the ride, so my friend and I took about a gram of Doox (20.54% THC) and made two-or-so Tablespoons of cannabutter. Doox, as described on The Farm’s website, is a “musky, skunky, earthy, pungent” hybrid of Chemdawg and Purple Cowthat provides an “instant intense high, uplifting mentally with a strong body buzz.” I feel that to be a pretty accurate description. There is no photo on the website, unfortunately, but there is one here. Since we only had a few grams of weed and wanted enough to smoke…

  • A Gonzo Look at the 2015 Minnesota Twins Coaching Staff

    Thompson
    9 Oct 2014 | 9:12 pm
    Coaches are underrated, underpaid and picking a coaching staff is hard. That’s what I’ve learned since attempting to dig into all the coaching candidates to fill positions on the 2015 Minnesota Twins coaching staff. Choosing a coaching staff is largely the manager’s job, but Terry Ryan will certainly play an active role in who the new manager hires, especially if the new manager is young and influential. Although recently it seems anyone Gardy wanted Terry allowed. Perhaps we’re seeing and feeling the effects of that now. The right collection of coaches makes all the…

    After a long and eventful Moto3 race, Australia has its new favorite. Local hero Jack Miller has won his home Grand Prix in front of more than 77.000 people, who probably collectively became fans. No wonder, since the farewell of Casey Stoner in 2012, the aussies are waiting for a new, australian top rider. It seems that Miller is the one they were looking for. The KTM factory rider started eighth position, but with the possible world title in mind, made his way up as fast as possible. His main opponent Álex Márquez instantly took the lead in front of his teammate Alex Rins, so Miller had…

  • Carbohydrate Loading: Enhancing Aerobic Performance

    Florence
    23 Oct 2014 | 4:41 am
    Carbohydrate Loading: Enhancing Aerobic Performance What is Carbohydrate Loading? The aim of Carbohydrate loading is to increase the body’s limited stores of glycogen, ultimately increasing endurance performance. As exercise intensity increases, the rate of glycogen use also increases. Endurance events longer in duration will also increase the amount of glycogen used. The majority of glycogen is stored within skeletal muscle: ~300 – ~600 g depending on fat free muscle mass, equating to ~1200 – ~2400 kcal. Glycogen is also stored within the liver: ~80 – ~110g, equating to…

    Paris recently extended its popular Velib cycle hire scheme to target an entirely new audience with entirely new bikes. The French cousin to London’s “Boris bikes” now includes 300 children’s bikes based at locations around their capital. Could we have the same scheme in the UK? Play in traffic? Before parents panic, the Parisian P’tit Velib scheme doesn’t see new children’s docking stations along the Champs Elysées. Instead, new hire locations are all based in parks or adjacent to other traffic-free areas – such as on the banks of the Seine.

Less than two weeks ago, Maddon said he is a Ray and wants to remain with the Rays. Well, apparently not. Reports say that the Rays offered him a significant raise, but Maddon turned it down. He’s now available for any other team that wants him. He’s one of the best managers in baseball, so he should have no problem becoming a manager elsewhere. It seemed like the departure of their general manager Andrew Friedman for…

PICK: LIONS Bills (4-3) @ Jets (1-6) The Bills are without both their running backs and are reaching down on the depth chart. The Jets have continued losing games by one possession. They bring in Percy Harvin. That and the fact Gang Green is home will be the difference in this one.
