    A little more than a year ago, the San Marino international soccer team scored its first goal in international competition in more than a 5-year span. Notwithstanding that feat, San Marino failed to win the game; in fact, San Marino has never won an international soccer game. The international team has been in business since 1990 and its record stands at 0-61-1. That tie game happened about a week ago when San Marino and Estonia met in something called “European qualifying” and the game ended at “Nil-Nil”. Question: Given the performance of San Marino over the last quarter of a…

    27 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    The 2014 NFL season is now hitting the crucial point where every win and loss means playing for a chance in the Super Bowl or wondering what could have been.  It also time for Thanksgiving, and time for being thankful.  This football season, the one thing I’m most thankful for, no it’s not the fact my team is in the midst of the playoff hunt. I’m thankful for parity that runs wild in the NFL. Quick quiz for you readers out there. Name the last time a NFL team won back to back Super Bowls? If you said the 2004 New England Patriots, then you would be correct. The Patriots…

    This Thursday the NFL is serving us up a three course visual meal in the form of three mouth-watering divisional match-ups. These three rivalry games come heavily smothered with different implications. Well, for the most part anyways. The CHI@DET game shouldn’t affect the division too much, unless the Lions tank from that point on, but the game still has its own “special” implications to it. I will get into that below. This holiday you can add “the NFL” to your lengthy list of things to be thankful for. They’ve put together a divine viewing menu for your heart to consume. Geez,…

    Do I need to still keep saying “another whacky week?” At this point, isn’t it just a standard week? I guess that doesn’t have as much flare to it though. Someone think of a really fun word for “standard” and send it to me on Twitter. There was a last minute change to Arizona this week, and Dallas crept back into the top five. Despite a win, and the return of LeSean McCoy, Philly is still outside of the top-five bubble. Washington managed to stay out of the bottom five, but that doesn’t mean they were free from criticism. All that, and more, in this week’s rankings. The Top…
  • Fantasy: Patriots RB situation is a Gray Area

    “A Gray area”, Other than a delightful play on words, its the very definition for the New England Patriots’ running back situation. Or for any Patriots player not named Tom Brady when it comes to fantasy, really. During the long reign of Bill Belichick, there really haven’t been consistent fantasy “locks” on the team. Besides a select few, that is. Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady may be the only names on the list. Recently, Jonas Gray made a big splash in New England’s backfield rotation. Which caused a lot of you to scramble to your phones, tablets, or…

    The life of a fan of a team in the National Football League can be a Jekyll and Hyde experience. In just the 17 weeks of a NFL season you can experience an array of emotions. As a true fan, or fanatic, you will often feel the same as the coaches and players. However, being a fan of the Washington Redskins means being one thing, decades of disappointment. It all started for me in the fall of ’88. I was a young boy growing up, in what was then, a small Colorado town. Growing up in a state that already had a football team, everyone thought I should plant my roots there. But I wanted a team…

    Two years after the infamous buttfumble, Mark Sanchez exorcised his Thanksgiving demons in Dallas today. Nevertheless, the blunder was a persistent topic of discussion throughout the game. Early in the fourth quarter, LeSean McCoy lost the ball on a play that was initially ruled a fumble. Upon further review, it was clear that McCoy was down on his back before the ball popped out, Mike Pereira told a buttfumble joke that felt a bit forced, there was a moment of awkward pause, and Joe Buck (playfully) deadpanned, “He’ll be here all week, folks.” Related: Joe Buck Burned…

    Virginia Tech’s football team gathered last night for a team Thanksgiving meal of turkey and stuffing, but the happy event took a dark turn when it was discovered the players and coaches were feasting on the school’s beloved turkey mascot. “It’s unfortunate what happened, but we will replace HokieBird,” said Virginia Tech director of athletics Whit Babcock. “It’s not much consolation, but if HokieBird had to die, I’m sure it would have wanted to provide sustenance and nutrition to the team it loved so very much.” The Hokies have a game…

    HIS FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR, SINCE HE ENJOYS SLICIN TURKEYS UP I'm thankful that Mark Richt gives away two wins a year even though there's no tax benefit to him. I'm thankful that Will Muschamp wasn't at Auburn, because nobody finishes there within four years. I'm thankful that Tennessee shows commitment to all its sports by only finishing with football records that could also be a basketball player's height. I'm thankful that Dabo's not cooking this holiday. Can't stuff a bird once in five tries. Don't be so proud, Arkansas. The 21st century shut out Mississippi, too. Nobody else wants to…

    MARSHALL RISES MARSHALL IS RANKED. Sure, it's below a two loss Boise State team, but they're ranked and that has to mean something! Right? No? Shit. At least we can laugh at other parts of the Playoff Committee rankings, like how winning on the road against West Virginia did nothing for Kansas State while beating Tennessee gave Missouri a three spot bump. Also UCLA is the number 8 team which, well, sure, if you say so. ALL REFS ARE AWFUL.

This is incorrect. The Committee's purpose is to determine the best four of any group, college football or otherwise.

    There’s a fine line between insanity and genius. Andy Kaufman was certainly a cutting edge performer who pushed the limits of comedy and entertainment, but his detractors said that he was certifiable. Vincent van Gogh was an artist of brilliance, but he also suffered from a variety of mental and physical ailments that resulted in mutilation and ultimately suicide. There’s no denying that Shia LaBeouf is an extremely talented actor, one who Brad Pitt described as being one of the finest actors he has ever worked with. In no way am I trying to compare LaBeouf to the aforementioned…

    NBC A Seattle-San Francisco game lived up to its billing as a defensive struggle incapable of allowing points, at least midway through a quarter. That was the point that Richard Sherman had an interception, the first turnover of the game that led to Robert Turbin scoring on a swing pass that exploited a blown coverage for the game’s opening score. It was a game waiting for a mistake and then Perrish Cox provided that derp with a fumbled punt return. That helped the Seahawks extend their lead to 13-0. For most games, that wouldn’t seems like much of a lead, but this is a game where…

In 2013, they had the Steelers and the Ravens, a nice enough rivalry that resulted in a game only truly memorable for Mike Tomlin obstructing Jacoby Jones on a kick return and Le’Veon Bell being denied a touchdown because he was decapitated. This year, the NFL has the premiere division rivalry going in the NFL. The problem is that the two teams are part of an insanely competitive division where…

    The fifth-ranked TCU Horned Frogs took one step closer to a possible college football playoff bid on Thanksgiving, beating the Texas Longhorns 48-10 in Austin. If TCU was going to slip up and remove itself from top-four consideration, then it likely would've been on Thursday, with the Horned Frogs taking on an improving Longhorns squad on the road. Texas entered on a three-game winning streak, making visible strides under Charlie Strong.

    The Hall of Useless Bike Inventions is littered with crap designed by people trying to "improve" an already perfectly functional piece of cycling equipment that simply isn't for them.  All those anatomic seats, for example?  Simply the product of riders who won't accept that they belong on a recumbent:Or how about that rolling hernia truss?Same thing there: deep, deep recumbent denial.Clipless pedals are another invention that work quite well for what they are, but are not for everybody.  If you enjoy the sensation of having your shoes attached to your pedals for certain types…

The difference, however, is that people went bigger back then--and I'm not just talking about the helments:I'm also talking about the routes:Sure, it was a little easier back then since the continents were slightly closer together in 1980 due to continental drift.   Still, that's a whopping 45,000 miles:Which took them six and a half years to complete:That is one long-ass vacation.  Indeed, to put…

Earlier in the day, Gilmore claimed her 6th World Title after a close race between Sally Fitzgibbons, Tyler Wright and herself, which has provided a reason to crank up the music, get the drinks flowing and party late into the night. With the World Title race coming down to the final event of the season in Maui, I was happy to see that the event experienced favorable surfing conditions that…

Especially since many from the current commentary and broadcast team lack formal broadcast or commentating experience. Sure, it's nice to have commentators who have backgrounds in professional surfing who can articulate some of the finer details during a contest, but it needs to be matched with some seasoned veterans as well to create a nice balance. That's why I think it could be extremely beneficial to add some experienced…

  • Nebraska vs. Tennessee-Martin - 11/28/14 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

    27 Nov 2014 | 11:38 pm
    The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks and Nebraska Cornhuskers play Friday night at the Pinnacle Bank Arena. The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks have won three straight and playing solid basketball at both ends. On the season, Tennessee-Martin is averaging 70.7 points on 45.2 percent shooting and is allowing 69.3 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Twymond Howard leads the Skyhawks with 14.8 points on 57.1 percent shooting and Myles Taylor is averaging 12.8 points and 8.3 rebounds.

    The Oilers look to rebound less than 24 hours after a heartbreaking loss to the Nashville Predators as they continue their road trip in St. Louis. The Edmonton Oilers have been highly critcized over the last few weeks and for good reason but you can't argue with how much heart and effort they have come back with after their dreadful 7-1 loss at home to the Chicago Blackhawks and Thursday night was a perfect representation of that. The Oil went into Nashville to take on a Predators team who is at the top of the Western Conference and pushed them into overtime before the Preds broke the…

    The Wild look to shake off a loss on home ice as they were pasted by the Kings when they head into Dallas to take on the Stars. The Minnesota Wild have been one of the best home ice teams in the league over the last couple of seasons but they didn't have anything in the tank in their last outing as Darcy Kuemper was shelled for four first period markers that ultimately held up as the difference as the Wild were shut out. The Wild are a very solid team and have deep postseason aspirations but they need to find more consistency in their game if they're going to stay competitive in the Central…

James Madison have won 4 straight since their opening season loss at Virginia, and recently handled the Sacred Heart Pioneers, 79-72 this past Wednesday night. Leading the way for the Dukes was Paulius Satkus who had a career high 21 points (5-5 FG, 10-11 FTM-A) and 8 rebounds and Jackson Kent who had 15 points and 6 rebounds. Head Coach Matt Brady has done a nice job with this squad, especially as the Dukes have been without the services of their leading scorer and pre-season CAA…

The Ottawa Senators head into Sunrise on Friday night looking to make up some ground in the Atlantic division while keeping the Panthers at bay in the process as they sit just a single point back of the Maple Leafs for fifth in the division and two points up on the Panthers for sixth. Ottawa has had a decent start to the season sitting three games above .500 through 21 contests and look like a team that could…

    Is America’s pastime becoming a thing of the past? Baseball is currently the nation’s second-favorite sport, trailing only football. Despite this ranking, most baseball economists are reporting that baseball game attendance and popularity is on a steady decline. Unless Major League Baseball (MLB) does something to gain the attention of modern viewers, it’s not going to fair well (popularity-wise) in the years to come. A report released May 29th, 2013, shows that MLB game attendance had declined 2.9 percent. Some teams saw more declines in attendance than others. For instance, the…

    Injuries are part of playing sports, but sometimes we wonder if sports injuries have to be so devastating. Players bank on their health for a paycheck and, at the same time, they have to entertain demanding fans. If they don’t perform, they won’t be around for long. Some think that some sports, like football, need an overhaul because of the severity of injuries when they do occur. Should national leagues be paying more attention to these injuries? And, what can be done, if anything, to minimize or eliminate them? Here are just a few examples of devastating sports injuries and what could…

    While almost every American is aware of the popularity of the NFL, NCAA, NBA, MLB and NHL; most would be stumped if asked which is the fastest growing team sport. If someone were to hazard a guess, they would most likely be wrong, because the fastest growing sport is none of these. It’s lacrosse. Fastest Growing Sport According to an annual report by US Lacrosse,“A record total of 746,859 players competed on organized lacrosse teams in 2013.

In order, Ohio State looms behind Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, Mississippi State and TCU.

    YOUR 2016 QB SITUATION Let's start off your Thanksgiving night with a little something to be thankful for: Ohio State doesn't need to sign a quarterback in 2016 barring disaster. Next year's roster should be chock full of quarterback deliciousness. Braxton Miller, Cardale Jones, JT Barrett, Stephen Collier, Joe Burrow and Torrance Gibson will all get their shot in the shotgun, at least initially. Yes, transfers could happen from that group, but overall, it's likely that at least five quarterbacks will appear on your 2015 roster. That said, we're talking recruiting and in my personal opinion,…

It seems to have brought us together."--Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers, in an interview prior to last season (October 2013).And the adversity just keeps coming.  Many people have predicted another losing season for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have lost the first five games of the 2014-2015 NBA season.

    28 Aug 2014 | 7:57 am
    I attended a great professional basketball game on Tuesday night. It was the deciding Game 3 of the WNBA opening round, conference semifinal match up between the Eastern Conference's #1 seed, Atlanta Dream versus the #4 seeded Chicago Sky in Atlanta's Philips Arena. The game included a classic individual match up pitting the Dream's leading scorer and two-time WNBA scoring champion, Angel McCoughtry, against last year's WNBA rookie of the year, Elena Delle Donne.I expected a great game, but I did not expect a greater lesson in leadership in the Sky's 81-80 comeback victory over Atlanta to win…

    Some experts say “yes.” Zane Benefits, for example, has been promoting a plan it says allows companies to reimburse employees who buy individual insurance with pre-tax dollars. And it’s been getting away with it. That’s partly because most states practice a “don’t ask; don’t tell policy.” If an insurance agent doesn’t ask where the premium dollars come from and the buyer doesn’t disclose the source, the agent is off the hook. (In Texas, by contrast, agents have an affirmatively obligation to determine where the money comes from.) The…

  • Setting Triathlon Goals – Racing Happy

    19 Jul 2014 | 10:14 am
    At the beginning of each triathlon season, most triathletes sit down and plan their races based on their goals. Some goals are event based – “I want to qualify for X championship race.” Some goals are time/distance based – “I want to do a sub 5 hour 70.3.” Others are competition based – “I want to finish on the podium, or at least beat my brother who won’t quit bragging about the last race where he bested me.” While I’ve built previous seasons around each of those different types of goals, this year is different for me. This year my goals are “happiness…

In the northern part of the country, that also means lots of runs on snowy trails, masters swimming sessions and most importantly, long boring sessions on the trainer. Which leads me to the point of this post: What is the point of being  a nerdy, triathlon-obsessed social media geek if you can’t make fun of yourself? What do many triathletes do on the trainer?

    My relationship with the triathlon world has been all over the place this year. When I was at my worst, I completely disconnected myself. I stopped reading triathlon blogs, avoided Twitter all together and stopped thinking about anything fitness related. The last thing I wanted to see was someone complaining about missing their marathon goal when I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to run a single step without crippling back pain.

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

Often treating the injury by oneself is meant to serve only as a first aid measure before getting specialized attention.

    Now that the Red Sox have come out guns-blazing in the free-agent market, their pitching situation has changed. No longer must they pin their hopes on youngsters and worry about giving up too much in trades. With Hanley Ramirez in left field (probably) and Pablo Sandoval at third, they should have an offensive revival. Whether or not they keep Yoenis Cespedes, the outfield looks stronger, especially if Shane Victorino returns to his 2013 form. Now the team must concentrate on getting one and maybe two hurlers to lead the staff. A return of Jon Lester is still a long-shot, and James Shields or…

    Have you ever been placed in a position where the most important decisions you need to make have to happen before you really have a lay of the land? Maybe you’re hired for an important company position and you have to approve a budget for the year ahead. At the point that you’re hired, you don’t really know what’s worked in the past and what hasn’t. You don’t even have a firm read on all of the people on your team. And yet, important decisions need to be made right away. That’s a tough situation. It’s not dissimilar to starting a new blog or…
  • Football Trick Plays: 5 of the Best Ever

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:10 am
    When football trick plays work, they’re a lot of fun to watch. A well-run trick play might make the local news, and the better ones can go from a lot of hits on YouTube to a viral sensation. Trick plays can also change the outcome of games. In addition to plays resulting in scores, the plays can be demoralizing for opponents. From PeeWee games to the NFL, you’ll find coaches trying to outfox the opponents with some trickery. Personally, I’m not a big fan of the trick plays that attempt to deceive opponents by pretending that play has been stopped. Perhaps you’ve seen…

Basketball Feel Good Story Roundup Drake Student cans buzzer beater to win a new truck At Drake University, as part of their “Bulldog Madness” half-time event, first year student Alex Tillinghast was chosen in a contest to make a layup, a free throw, a 3-pointer and a half-court shot in 30 seconds for an opportunity to win a new truck. When it takes Tillinghast 3 attempts to finally make a layup, you sense that most of the crowd on hand has written off his chances for the grand prize. But, he makes the free throw…

    Oak Harbor and Marysville Pilchuck, two Seattle area high schools, were scheduled to play for the title game last Friday night. But, tragedy struck on game day. A freshman student of Marysville Pilchuck walked into his own school cafeteria with a gun and began shooting, killing one and injuring several others.

Rockefellar, was once asked the question, “How much is enough?” The multimillionaire’s response was simple and to the point: “Just a little bit more.” If the late multimillionaire were alive today he would be in good company with many of the top-name professional athletes that grace our television screens.

    The Blog That Boredom Built

  • Looking At Danny Santana

    Erik Voldness
    5 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Danny Santana had a fantastic rookie season. Santana's .319/.353/.472 slash line and his OPS+ of 130 are fantastic numbers for anyone, let alone a 23-year-old in his first big league season. Because of Santana's youth and the fact that he had what appears to be a breakout rookie season, the expectation for Santana is that he will continue to improve and build upon his great rookie season.To be blunt: That's highly unlikely. His strikeout to walk ratio was 98 to 19, and very rarely do players who can't control the strike zone continue to hit at a high level year after year.It's important to…
  • Aaron Hicks: Not a Bust (yet)

    Erik Voldness
    4 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Aaron Hicks is not yet a bust. I realize that's an unpopular opinion amongst the Twins faithful, but a simple understanding of his numbers makes it a fact.Calling Hicks a bust seems to stem from him struggling offensively over the last two seasons in the big leagues. The thought process seems to be that he got two years to show he belonged on the team, and he struggled. Of course, each season was less than half a season's worth of at bats, so Hicks first two years in the big leagues are really the equivalent of most rookies first seasons.To be fair, Hicks hasn't just struggled with the bat,…

    Ricky Rubio can't shoot. I would imagine looking through basketball fans tweets during a Timberwolves game would reveal several tweets complaining about Rubio's shooting ability. And while it is true that Rubio's shooting leaves a lot to be desired, fans as usual focus on the "flashy" part of the game rather than the big picture.When Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown, many fans were convinced that he HAD to be the MVP, because he had won the triple crown for goodness sakes! How could he not win it? It's simple; fans and writers and even "baseball experts" had been valuing the wrong parts of…

    Yesterday was one of the more surprising trade deadlines in recent memory. There were several big trades that saw several roster shakeups, including Jon Lester heading from Boston to Oakland for Yoenis Cespedes. With Oakland acquiring arguably the two best pitchers available over the last month (Jeff Samarzdija being the other), one of their main competitors knew they needed to get involved in the arms race. And get involved the Tigers did.After weeks of David Price trade speculation, with a different "favorite" emerging seemingly daily, the Tigers came basically out of nowhere to land the Cy…

How concerned should we be with the play of Alec Burks? John English: Somewhat concerned. He’s now a bonafide starter, and it seems to have affected his game early.

We heard phrases like “high-octane”, “fast paced”, “high scoring” to describe the type of offense that was going to be installed. Tight Ends and Full Backs were going to be a casualty as this “offense” had everything from 1 RB/4 WR sets to 5 WR sets and they were going to be fast, explosive and score a lot of points. Christensen was going to bring a new life to the offensive…

    While underdogs did well in Wednesday's Liguilla quarterfinals, the higher seeds got the job done on Thursday, with Toluca and Atlas both winning away. UANL Tigres are heading home with an away goal, but they don't have quite the stranglehold on this quarterfinal tie that they should have. Pachuca stole a stoppage time goal, grabbing a 1-1 draw in the Liguilla opener. Pachuca got off to a very strong start and probably should have scored in the early going. Nahuel Guzman tipped a Rodrigo Salinas stinger over the bar in the 11th minute, then Aquivaldo Mosquera badly missed an open header that…

    Jaguares were good, but probably not good enough. Jaguares de Chiapas probably needed a win on Thursday to feel like they had a good chance to advance from the Liguilla semifinals, but they didn't quite get it. Toluca scored just before halftime to put them in a hole, and while the home side did pull one back, they couldn't find a second goal and had to settle for a 1-1 draw. The first half was light on serious chances, and Toluca should have been given a chance to score the opener via a penalty just before the break. Horacio Cervantes haled down Pablo Velazquez in the box, but the referee…

A week after shutting down the Arizona Cardinals, the Seahawks D dominated the San Francisco 49ers to lead the team to a 19-3 win on Thanksgiving night. Unable to get any semblance of an offensive rhythm all night, the 49ers gained just 164 total yards. The Seahawks run defense, which has struggled at times since losing space-eating defensive tackle Brandon Mebane, held the Niners to just 64 yards on the ground and kept Frank Gore to a 2.8-yard average.

    Louis Van Gaal is finally set to strengthen his depleted defence with a stunning 30m move for Real Madrid duo Pepe and Fabio Coentrao. United have struggled to cope with a handful of injuries to stars since the start of the season and were forced to deploy academy graduates Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett alongside Chris Smalling in last weekends victory over Arsenal. Van Gaal is aware that defensive recruitments must be his first priority, and the Metro have reported that the club are ready to push the boat out in order to secure the signings of the Portuguese duo. Pepe has built a…

  • TCU impresses with Texas win, but still needs help in CFP rankings

    27 Nov 2014 | 8:39 pm
    TCU needed to make a statement in its final game against a worthwhile opponent and it didn’t disappoint. The Horned Frogs thrashed Texas 48-10 and did its best to make a case for a spot in the top 4 of the College Football Playoff. Of course, there’s still one more game to play — TCU will finish the season next week at home against Iowa State — but Thursday’s game marked the last quality matchup on the Horned Frogs regular season schedule. While Texas struggled early in the season, it came into Thursday's game winners of three straight and bowl eligible. Texas’ defense ranked…

    27 Nov 2014 | 5:56 pm
    LSU freshman running back Leonard Fournette hit the truckstick button on his controller en route to a touchdown Thursday night against Texas A&M. Fournette burst through the line and absolutely bowled over A&M defensive back Howard Matthews on a 22-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. It's a hit that makes you feel sorry for Matthews. The touchdown tied the game at 7-7 in the second quarter. It was Fournette's team-leading eighth touchdown of the season. Earlier in the game, LSU fumbled on third down and was forced to punt after recovering the fumble and failing to get a first down.

    Tony Romo did not play well on Thanksgiving in the Dallas Cowboys' 33-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. But one of his interceptions was mostly the fault of his receiver, Terrance Williams, who has been ghost like Swayze the past month or so. Williams has been on the injury list with a bum finger of late, but his heart looked damaged on the interception that was credited to Romo with the Cowboys down 30-10.

    There are thousands and thousands of youth sports teams, but how many of them are really doing team the right way?

    There were a lot of big games last week, but none resulted in any big moves near the top of the playoff standings. I missed five games, and three of them were ACC games. Considering I’m a follower of the conference, this is just a little confounding to me. Florida State escaped again, but unlike the rest of the top teams, they haven’t yet failed to close. I happen to think that’s a great accomplishment, considering three of those wins are against ranked opponents.

    With the unpredictable British weather, what could be better than a fun day out at an indoor waterpark. Both adults and children alike love the excitement and action of moving water and the different challenges that it can present and for the less adventurous, there are many attractions that can be both relaxing and stimulating. Most indoor waterparks are open all year round, except during periods of maintenance, so even on dark, dreary winter days they all have something special to recommend them. Sandcastle Waterpark Situated in the north of the UK in Blackpool, the Sandcastle Waterpark is…

  • “I Run for the Party Half Marathon”

    18 Nov 2014 | 12:13 pm
    Getting by with a Little Help from a Friend This past weekend I ran the “I Run For the Party Half Marathon”, also known as the Nashville Half.  It is a smaller marathon with about 1400 running the half and 400 or so actually doing the whole marathon. There is also a 5K as well. It is my second year doing this race.  It starts right in front of the Hard Rock Cafe, which I like. There’s a lot of cool scenery down at the end of Broadway. One of the main reasons I decided to do this race is because it is good pace training for the Memphis full I have coming up December 6th. …

    This week we’ll see the biggest cold front of the season so far, although no snow yet in Tennessee like our friends up north. That got us thinking about all of our favorite cold weather things. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, of course, signal fall and cold weather.

  • St. Jude’s Marathon – Giving Help for Hope

    4 Nov 2014 | 9:34 am
    “Once you choose hope, anything is possible.” – Christopher Reeve In 5 weeks on December 6th, 2014, my friend Jenifer and I will be running the St. Jude’s Marathon in Memphis. This will be my third time running this race. It is without a doubt the most inspiring marathon I have ever done. Last year I ran as what they call a St. Jude’s Hero, meaning that I signed up to raise money for the children at the hospital. This year I’m going to do something a little different and we are going to ask for everyone’s help. Help for Hope A high school friend of mine, Gwen Reynolds, has spent…
  • The Importance of Nutrition and Rest for Runners

    31 Oct 2014 | 9:24 am
    “You know you’re addicted to running when your least favorite workout of the week says ‘rest’!” I am at the tail end of training for the Memphis Full Marathon.  Last weekend I was set to do 18 miles.  You would think that being a seasoned runner, I wouldn’t make dumb mistakes.  Ha!  Think again.  I ended up having one of my worst (if not the worst) training runs ever.  That week had been very busy so I hadn’t been to the grocery store. Yes it was one of those weeks where we frequented Wendy’s and Subway after a zillion practices with my kids. (No judging…
  • Running the Middle Half (Murfreesboro Half Marathon)

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:55 pm
    About a week ago I ran the Murfreesboro Half (also known as the Middle Half) for the fifth year in a row. The best part about it is that I always go with a few of my friends. That always makes getting up at the crack of dawn a little easier. Registration for this race was over four months ago. It fills up in just hours so if you want to run it, you have to register the day it opens. What I didn’t know when I registered was that I would be in Philadelphia the whole week before, flying back home the night before the race. I am not going to lie, I was dreading it and even slightly considered…

And the standings remain close, including in the AFC North, which is the first division in NFL history to have every team at least three games over .500 at any point in a season. So with five weeks to play, nothing has been settled. “We feel like we are in the playoffs,” says San Francisco 49ers safety Antoine Bethea about playing games at this time of year. “Win at all costs.” Week 13 begins on…

    According to sources within the organization and first reported by Adam Schefter, starting quarterback Robert Griffin, III will sit out this Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.  Backup quarterback Colt McCoy will start in his place. This decision might surprise some but it should not. Head coach, Jay Gruden has 52 other guys to consider when doing his job. Those guys want and deserve to win. Throughout the season, Gruden has been lukewarm in his support of Griffin and even though he said he intended to start Griffin this weekend, he never really committed to it 100 percent.

    Current starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin, III, has had some problems executing his position to his head coach’s satisfaction. Last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought that into stark relief. RGIII threw interceptions when there was no need to force throws, appeared to feel that his protection in the pocket was breaking down when it was not and, as Jay Gruden said to the media on Monday following the game, “he took three-step drops when he should have taken five. He took a one-step drop when he should have taken three…” and so on.

The noon kickoff this weekend in Columbus will be a nice home coming for the Buckeyes that faced Minnesota on the road last Saturday. The Buckeyes will be favored by 30+ points and need a break from a tough couple of games to get healthy and let some younger players get some experience.

Wenn Dein Arzt die Diagnose “Darmträgheit” trifft, dann verschreibt er vielfach Abführmittel. Diese sorgen für ein einmaliges Absetzen des Kots, eine langfristige Verbesserung wird allerdings nicht erzielt. Die Medikamente verfügen über verschiedene Nebenwirkungen und stellen das Darmgleichgewicht nicht wieder her.

The Wildcats held Michigan without a basket for a stretch that spanned the final seven of the first half and the first three of the second. Michigan finally bottomed when Caris LeVert was ripped by JayVaughn Pinkston for a steal and easy dunk to stretch the Villanova lead to 13 points. From there, the Wolverines called three timeouts in 18 seconds. First to stop the momentum,…

  • FAITH & SPORTS MINUTE: Hitting Rock Bottom

    21 Nov 2014 | 4:01 pm
    In sports, there are some games where everything goes wrong and a team has an embarrassing loss. Cincinnati Bengals’ head coach, Marvin Lewis, dealt with this recently and said: “Sometimes you gotta hit rock bottom before you can go all the way back up to the top, and we certainly were at rock bottom a few weeks ago on Thursday night.” We can argue whether the Bengals really hit rock bottom, since they still have a great chance to win their division, but the concept of hitting rock bottom is an interesting one. I think most of us can relate to this concept when we experience…

  • 5 Tips for Taking Great Leads and Putting Pressure on the Defense

    17 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    As a player, I loved running bases. It’s so super fun to push your limits, make your opponents sweat a little, and take extra bases any time the opportunity arises. Good baserunners give defenses something to think about. They’re always a threat. They make things tough for the opposing defense and add pressure to otherwise “routine” situations and plays. All this distraction on the bases often takes focus off the batter. It can also open up holes for batters to hit through. When you… take extra bases every chance you get put added pressure on the defense open up…
  • Why you need to compete less

    11 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    If you want to get ready for competition… Compete less, train more. You don’t get better at competing by just competing more. You get better at competing by TRAINING. Effective learning, and development of skill work and technique, requires training under conditions where “results” don’t matter.You must be able to focus solely on HOW you’re doing what you do. Not what the actual result is. That’s what training is. Time for emphasis on process and technique. When you’re trying to improve a particular part of your swing, you probably won’t…

    3 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    Share this article: Click Here to Tweet It’s a common misconception that strength training slows athletes down. I used to believe that was true. After all I’d seen players add weight lifting to their training. Yes, they got stronger, but they got slower too. Slower in running. Slower in pitching. Slow is not a goal in softball training. When I went to college, our strength and conditioning coach had us to “lower weights” and “higher reps” in the weight room. My understanding was that we stayed “light” on the weights since speed was important in…

This past Sunday, and for the first time since then, the five-time NFL MVP led an offense to less than ten points in a game, which serves as a suggestion that times are a-changing in the NFL, and the pre-season Super Bowl favourite Denver Broncos can no longer carry that moniker.

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • Breaking down the Red Wings’ second segment: This is the story of how special teams can save a team

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Franzenstein Not too long ago, people were worried about the Red Wings power play. LOL. The Red Wings completed their second segment on Monday. They went 5-3-2 in the 10 games, earning 12 points. When combined with their 15-point segment in the first 11 games, they’re ahead of where they were after 21 games a year ago. They probably shouldn’t be. Look at the chart: 2013-14 Averages Segment 1 Segment 2 GF 27.1 29 30 GA 27.6 22 27 5-on-5 GF 19.1 19 17 5-on-5 GA 18.4 15 18 PPG 6.1 5 12 OPP PPG 5.9 3 5 (*The splits don’t add up to the total because I didn’t include empty-net…
  • Jim Caldwell’s 11-game referendum as Detroit Lions head coach

    24 Nov 2014 | 7:03 am
    Jim Caldwell was trying to minimize the pain, get out before the bomb went off. The questions didn’t stop. Most of them were the same, some variation of, ‘Why has the offense sucked?’ Caldwell let the pressure pierce him. His demeanor changed. He spoke clear and fast, but with bitterness. He was either a man without answers or one with answers he’d rather not say. Caldwell spent a lot of his press conference saying he needed to “look at the film.” The reason for the offensive struggles? We’ll have to take a look at the film. How were the Patriots so…
  • Tracing the Detroit Red Wings’ roster roots: How one draft pick in 1990 is still paying dividends

    21 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Thank this guy for Darren Helm On June 16, 1990, the NHL converged upon BC Place Stadium in Vancouver for the NHL Entry Draft. The Red Wings’ Bryan Murray was in his first year as coach and GM and was tasked with improving a team that had posted a 28-38-14 the previous season and finished last in the Norris Division Murray selected Keith Primeau with the third overall selection. The Red Wings had no second-round selection, so Murray’s next pick came in at the top of the third, when he selected Vyacheslav “Slava” Kozlov with the 45th overall pick. Primeau would become…
  • Jimmy Howard isn’t getting better, he’s just sucking less

    19 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Red Wings Twitter exploded after Jimmy Howard made the save above in Detroit’s 5-0 win over Columbus on Tuesday. Most of them said roughly the same thing: “I’ve been a Howard detractor, but he’s been really good this year.” Howard’s goals against average is down to 1.97 from 2.66 and his save percentage has risen 14 points — from .910 to .924 — in comparison to last year. Want to bring analytics into it? Howard had 8.3 Goalie Point Shares for the Red Wings last season. That’s 8.9 percent of Detroit’s 93 points. This year Howard has…
  • What facing a real-life Monstars football team taught us about the Detroit Lions

    17 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Jim Caldwell was calm. Matt Stafford was calm. Ndamukong Suh was short — but calm. They stood at the podium and in the hallway and spouted off about how they had to be better, how that Cardinals team was good, how the offense needed to score off those two interceptions. Those could be their true emotions. But I imagine when they reconvene on Tuesday there will be a little fear. Let’s get it out of the way: the officiating wasn’t good. Fox’s officiating analyst, Mike Pereira, came on TV and proclaimed the Ebron play at the end of the half was a certain first down only to…

    The Wizards lost back to back games for the first time this season, losing 113-87 to the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Thanksgiving Eve. Lebron James nearly turning a triple double with 29 points, ten rebounds and eight assists. Cleveland (7-7) stormed to a 31-18 first quarter lead and it was for all purposes over. It was just five days ago that the Wizards had their way with the Cavs at the Verizon Center, so payback was certainly on the minds of Lebron and crew. At 9-5, Washington still leads the Southeast Division and hold the second best record in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards again…

  • Wake ‘em up, Coach

    22 Nov 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Some members of the media will have you believe that the Giants players have stopped playing for their coach. While most of them are just stirring the pot, some of them are clueless. The Giants defense showed heart and played well enough to win under their embattled DC Perry Fewell. It was the offense, in particular Eli Manning, who gave the game to the 49ers. With Pugh out, Manning was under pressure all game and until the 4th quarter, the running game was no help. We have seen Eli have bad games but this was almost laughable. While I long for the days where the Giants would run it four…
  • Giants vs. 49ers Pregame Thoughts

    16 Nov 2014 | 7:58 am
    This week we’ll see if these Giants have any pride. Can you imagine how pumped Kaepernick is to run the read option against the Giants, who have had no answers to stop or even slow it down? The Giants must show discipline on defense this week or it will be another disaster. Can Perry Fewell put his defense in position to compete this week or will this team give another sub-par effort? On the other side of the ball, the running game should get a boost depending on how many snaps Jennings will play, but let’s hope Eli stays patient and doesn’t force the ball into double…
  • Giants vs. Seahawks Post Game Thoughts

    11 Nov 2014 | 5:35 pm
    The once proud Giants defense looked like a sub-par high school team on Sunday against an average Seahawk offense. The rest of the league knows you have to limit “Beastmode” and take away Wilson as far as the read option. For a while it looked promising and then, during a record setting performance by the Seahawks, it all collapsed drastically. I can’t believe at the highest level of football, the best coaches and players in the world, that the Giants had no adjustment to stop the “zone read.” When JPP was asked after the game, “Were there any adjustments…

  • Tottenham Hotspur: What a Joke

    28 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    Just over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the sacking of Andre Villas Boas, where I questioned whether the bullet should have stopped at Andre, or whether the problem lay further. Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

    It’d be quite the understatement to suggest that Tottenham’s transfer movements have as far this summer been quiet underwhelming, with the only major dealings being players leaving the lane, as opposed to players coming in, however, this may well prove to be the most efficient summer in recent years.Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino begins to shape his Spurs side.It’s well known that we’ve needed a minor clear-out, with many players failing to live up to the hype that their names hold, looking specifically at players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, as well as a certain…

Sandro.The self-proclaimed, ‘Beast’, joined Tottenham in March 2010 for around £8 Million from Internacional.

Ramirez received for his marching orders for kicking out at Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen in an off the ball incident but there did not seem to be much malice in the coming together at all. Ex-Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore rifled the Tigers in front after just eight minutes but Harry Kane equalized soon after the hour. Christian Eriksen settled the occasion with an angled shot past Allan McGregor in the 90th minute to leave Hull fans cursing referee Craig Pawson.

Late strikes from Joe Ledley and an astonishing Mile Jedinak free-kick sealed the three points for Palace despite Liverpool taking the lead after just two minutes. Rickie Lambert scored his first goal in Liverpool colours to give his boyhood club a dream start before Palace pegged them back. It was a goal made in Southampton with Lambert latching onto Adam Lallana’s through ball before tucking the ball past Julian Speroni. Dwight Gayle…

(Mandatory Credit: Joe Robbins/Getty Images) The New England Patriots are coming off an impressive string of victories after a slow start to the season.

  • Skeptical Football: Thanksgiving Preview Edition

    Benjamin Morris
    27 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    On Thanksgiving Day 1892, the Allegheny Athletic Association — featuring the world’s first professional football player, William Heffelfinger — beat the Cleveland Athletic Club with a single touchdown, by a score of 4 to 0. Back then, field goals were worth five points — meaning, yes, a field goal was worth more than a touchdown — and the forward pass was illegal (it wouldn’t be allowed for an additional 14 years). In other words, teams have been playing football on Thanksgiving since long before it was football as we know it.The NFL has embraced that tradition…
  • What’s At Stake For Every College Football Playoff Contender

    26 Nov 2014 | 11:49 am
    The college football playoff committee didn’t make much news when it released its new rankings Tuesday: The top seven teams remained the same. The biggest shift was for Mississippi, which lost badly last week and fell from No. 8 to No. 19.This was in line with what our college football forecast model expected. Because the model is based mostly on a historic analysis of the Coaches Poll, this means the committee behaved in the same boring way the coaches usually do — keeping the teams in the same order except when one drops a game and loses its place in line. So, our national…

     Turkey and football is an annual tradition. Turkey and meaningful football is a treat. So be thankful this year: When ranked by total playoff “swing” — a measure of how much each game affects the playoff picture9 — three of the top four Week 13 games will take place on Thanksgiving.When the Chicago Bears visit the Detroit Lions in the first Thanksgiving Day game, the stakes are straightforward. The Bears are largely out of playoff contention, so all affected teams do better with a Lions loss — excluding the Lions, of course.You don’t need a complicated…

    Which teams are most likely to make college football’s first-ever four-team playoff? And which have the best chance of coming away with the national title?The quick answer is the obvious one: The Alabama Crimson Tide lead the way on both counts. They’re No. 1 in the playoff selection committee’s current rankings and No. 1 according to most computer systems, including ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI). Alabama is no stranger to postseason success, having won the national title in 2009, 2011 and 2012.But it won’t be easy for Alabama, or anyone else. To win the national title, the…

    The first 10 games of the NFL season are its exposition period — we get to know the characters and themes that we expect to see develop as the race to the playoffs unfolds.13 This year, like nearly every other in the past decade, the New England Patriots’ refusal to regress to the mean is a central storyline.Remember back when the Patriots were 0-1 and faced a must-win in Week 2? Well, they won. Then in Week 4 they dropped to 2-2, and the end of an era was supposedly nigh. Except no. Pats will be Pats, and now they’ve won their last six games en route to the best record in the AFC.

He's franchise player good. Unfortunately, Anthony Davis is All-Time Great good. The Brow has put together an incredible season thus far, including a 28 point, 9 rebound, 3 blocks, 2 steals performance. You know what other number he put up? 0. As in 0 assists. The Brow might be a black hole, or he's just so good that he doesn't need to pass. Either way, he's really, really good and with Eric Gordon out for the forseeable future (again), Davis should have a few extra…

What do you think dalton was thinking about last night? You know he didn't get any sleep. He just sat there thinking about Watt plowing through his line like a mallard duck, over and over and over again. Somehow, the Texans Fitzpackian offense will suck so much that the Bengals will field goal there way to victory, leaving an angry Watt sulking on the sideline.GB (-9) at MINLet's throw this out there: The…

Today, one of the biggest stars in the game is headed to one of the most storied franchises and one of the rising stars in the league has solidified his place in Seattle for the foreseeable future. First, Kyle Seager. He’s been a durable, solid option for the Mariners, and was rewarded for that with a 7-year, $100 million extension. Any other year, a 7-year deal would seem like a lifetime, but the 2104 free agency period will of course be shrouded by 13-year deals. Seager hit .268 last…

  • Orton Signs with New York Jets for Pee Wee League

    31 Oct 2014 | 6:29 am
    Just when you thought the New York Jets couldn’t get any worse, in walks another team who is usually in the same boat. The Buffalo Bills, with Kyle Orton at the helm. Except the “helm” for Orton is more like a cruise control button on a vacuum cleaner. And that is exactly why the Jets have signed Orton to a new contract deal. That’s right, Kyle Orton is to be the new quarterback for the New York Jets. Although they will be calling themselves the Sunnyside Jets, and they will be finishing out their season with a bunch of 9 year-olds. Jets owner Woody Johnson said in a post-game…

  • Did Richard Sherman Call Roger Goodell After A Murder In Seattle On Sunday?

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:34 am
    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…

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:25 am
    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…

    Alexis Sanchez – The New Rising Star in EPL   Alexis Sanchez is becoming an influential player for Arsenal.

Alexis is currently the third top goalscorer in Premier League, with 8 goals in 10 matches, behind City’s Sergio Aguero and Chelsea’s Diego Costa.

The experienced Italian boss had to work with a locker room that was split by the differences between the Portuguese group (Pepe and Fabio Coentro were Mourinho’s favorites) and the Spanish group (well know disputes with Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas).

    What better way than to spend a Wednesday night than some “World Championship” Boxing. I’m not 100% exactly sure what the “Silver” title is or entails but it certainly doesn’t entitle the holder to be a “full” World Champion. Anthony “The Man” Mundine is certainly no stranger to these type of titles, as although he claims to be a 3 time World Champion, he has only ever been an “Interim” title holder (as there was a “Super” Champion above him at the same time) or the very lightly regarded IBO Champion, which is…
  • FOOTBALL – October 10th – A-League – Melbourne Victory v Western Sydney Wanderers

    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…

    Loss to Memphis reveals how Lakers should play moving forwardNov 27, 2014 Kobe Bryant, the NBA record holder in missed shots, didn’t take one for the first 13 minutes against the Western Conference leading Memphis Grizzlies. And no, he didn’t play with a broken finger. Instead, Bryant went 5-for-15 and finished with a team-high 22 points. The Lakers (3-12), who are currently the second worst team in the NBA, actually held their own against a hot Grizzlies (13-2) team through the fourth quarter and contained Marc Gasol, who was coming off of back-to-back 30-point performances, to just…

By all means, put a bumper sticker on your rivals car, make outrageous bets on the outcome of your game, remind them how stupid their mascot is, how easy it is to get into their school, and how bleak the job market is…

    Manchester City last night managed to beat the imperial Bayern Munich in Manchester, but the brilliance of Sergio Aguero once again papered over the cracks of a weak City team.Sergio AgueroAfter a brilliant start which saw City dominate the German giants, they took the lead through a penalty. Mehdi Benatia got the wrong side of Aguero and cut him down, receiving a red card in the process. It should have been plain sailing, from there, as you’d expect a team of Manchester City’s quality to dominate against ten men, but that was not the case.Bayern came back into the game with ten men and,…

    It is the day before the G20 Summit kicks off in Brisbane (Queensland, Australia). The temperature is expected to peak at 40ºC (104ºF) both on Saturday and Sunday. Throw tropical humidity in the mix and you know it will be unbearable. Of course, that is the least of the worries for most people, especially police, protesters and civil liberties groups. Because no one wants a rerun of what happened at the G20 Summit in Toronto (Canada) in 2010, where police used kettling on protesters, and it was rumoured that police also instigated the protesters so they could practice for what they had been…

    According to a 2013 survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, 43% of American physicians use mobile health technology for clinical purposes. That number is bound to increase dramatically thanks to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approving new services to be covered in 2015, including mental health services. Still, due to the limited number of mobile health services covered by American health insurance companies, the majority and most popular mobile health applications are designed to provide preventative care.

My companion had come in full regalia – full military gear complete with a Winchester AR-15 assault rifle and a big ugly .45 Smith & Wesson. I convinced him to leave the former in the big grey Cadillac, which we had conveniently parked far off the shoulder of the highway, with the headlights off, of course. “Leave the engine running,” I said, “and for Christ’s sakes put that fucking machine gun away, man.

They are silent for now, licking their wounds and sleeping off victory hangovers. The winners won big this year and the losers lost bigger.

    The plot is not complicated. An assassin takes an impossible job to get out of the business in order to spend more time with his dying wife. She dies, but gives him a reason to live – a dog. Some prick kills the dog, and the assassin goes back to work. John Wick doesn’t need a complicated, dramatic plot to be the reason why we still got to movie theaters. I’d been jacked to see John Wick since Doug Benson recommended it on his podcast, “Doug Loves Movies.” John Wick is the perfect film to see with a large audience on the big screen, so when my cousin and I got to…

Hamilton looked to have the edge in the first two qualifying sessions, but a lock-up on his first run in the top 10 shoot-out evaporated his momentum and allowed Rosberg to steal pole position.

His redemption tour continues as he leads the 8-3 Eagles against its division rival, the 8-3 Cowboys. Sanchez has been quite solid in Philly since stepping up for the injured Nick Foles. However Sanchez’s fortune wasn’t always so positive. He was once a New York Jet. On Thanksgiving 2012 one of his most embarrassing moments as a New York Jet occurred. The infamous “Butt Fumble” had happened on Turkey Day in a game against the New England…

The rookie Titans Quarterback had a series of selfies go viral this season. The selfies were taken before games and…

  • NFL Week 12, Infuriating Parity

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:44 pm
    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

    19 Nov 2014 | 1:41 pm
    2013-2014 was something of an eventful year for the United States Men’s National Team.   In October of 2013, the Stars & Bars qualified for their seventh straight World Cup and midfielder Graham Zusi was canonized by El Tri fans after equalizing in a meaningless CONCACAF qualifer against Panama—Mexico qualified for Brazil after a two-legged inter-continental win over New Zealand.   The U.S. were drawn into the Group of Death for the World Cup and somehow finished second among the likes of Germany, Portugal and Ghana. This was the pinnacle for the team as their…
  • Philadelphia 76ers, the NBA is Tanktastic

    14 Nov 2014 | 4:02 pm
    The Philadelphia 76ers reached the first of what promises to be many lows for the 2014-15 NBA season against the Dallas Mavericks on November 13. After amassing an impressive 29 first-half points (Dallas led 73-29 at the half), the Sixers exploded for 41 in the second half en route to a 123-70 loss, their 8th straight to start the season.   Words like “laughingstock” come to mind and though the season is still young, discussions about this year’s Sixers being “the worst NBA team ever” are blooming among NBA pundits, including USA Today’s Mike Foss.

After a scoreless draw in Salt Lake City, Donovan led the Galaxy charge with a resounding hat trick and an assist.   Landon Donovan was not good enough for the US World Cup team? Yeah right.

    As major club football enters a two-week international break, all is not well for two of England’s most storied clubs.   Arsenal—after a midweek meltdown in the Champions League against Anderlecht at the Emirates—once again let a lead slip in the late stages, this time away to Swansea in Barclays Premier League play.   Liverpool’s dreadful season continued after surrendering an early 1-0 lead to Chelsea at Anfield. The Reds got a goal from Emre Can in the ninth minute but Gary Cahill equalized in the 14th.   Liverpool hopes were shattered in the 67th minute by…

  • Willie Young Calls “Frustrated” Chicago Bears Wimpy

    27 Nov 2014 | 7:14 pm
    After narrowly missing the playoffs in 2013, everybody on the Chicago Bears believed 2014 would be their year.  And why not?  A productive off-season had brought some fresh talent to relieve a beleaguered defense and the offense was entering the second year of scheme development after setting records in its first under Marc Trestman. Instead the team has stumbled to a 5-7 mark, all but eliminated themselves from the playoff picture and been left wondering what in the world went wrong with a season that held so much promise.  If there was one emotion that has boiled over in the locker room…

    Erik Lambert
    27 Nov 2014 | 6:56 pm
    Normally a team or player is supposed to improve from the first year to the second under a head coach.  In 2013, the Philadelphia Eagles under Chip Kelly went 10-6.  So far in 2014 they are 9-3.  Bruce Arians and his Arizona Cardinals were also 10-6 last season and are now 9-2.  So obviously Marc Trestman followed the same path right? Not even close.  After an 8-8 finish last year, the Chicago Bears are 5-7, which means they are likely to end with an even worse record than before.  That speaks to a complete organizational failure and will undoubtedly cost people their jobs  The only…

Whether Bill Belichick would be able to make anything of yet another band of merry men and outcasts? They out-duelled the Broncos a few weeks back, ran all over the Colts last week and this time they picked apart the Detroit Lions like it was nothing. One of the best defences going around. Most of their best games have been at home, but that’s hardly an issue heading into the playoffs when they have the best…

  • Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry Could Play His Last Ever Game This Saturday

    Talking Baws
    27 Nov 2014 | 3:23 pm
    As far as careers go, Thierry Henry’s will certainly go down in football folklore. With a World Cup, Champions League, Super Cup, Ligue 1, Premier League and La Liga (to name a few) to his name, the Frenchman is by far the most successful player ever to play in the MLS. This Saturday’s MLS Cup second leg at the home of New England Revolution could bring down the curtain on Henry’s glittering career. The Red Bulls currently trail 2-1 and would need to win the game by a two goal deficit to overturn the first leg loss and progress or their season is over, and so could the Ex…

Davy Bhoy, as he is known on Twitter, took to the social networking site to display his anger at what he believed was mistreatment from other supporters who told his eight-year-old to sit down and stop singing. Davy then claimed he was advised to leave the stadium by stewards due to complaints about his child who then grew upset and cried as he made his way home. The events were catalogued on the Celtic…
