    Eli Manning, Tom Brady and Matt Ryan all have very good reasons to gloat following their strong personal performances over the Thanksgiving weekend, which helped lead their respective teams to victories.  And while they certainly didn’t allow the opportunity to bask in the glory pass them by in this week’s edition of the “NFL Quarterbacks […]

    You know what I love most about MMA? I’ll give you a hint: it’s not the kicking and punching and blood and guts. I’ll give you another hint: it’s the ring girls. Think about it.  Without the rise of the UFC, would we have ever known that sexy women like Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer even exist? Well okay, […]

    The Clippers’ Matt Barnes Was Throwing Elbows Last Night (Video)

    Is it just me, or are there more flagrant fouls in the NBA than there used to be—particularly ones involving elbows? Back in April, of course, there was the Metta World Peace-to-James Harden “elbow heard ’round the world” (or at least in North America and Taiwan). Then, just a few weeks ago, Thomas Robinson of […]

    Camera’s often capture fans making inappropriate gestures at sporting events. But while such actions might be considered crude or even lewd, they are rarely criminal.

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/26/2012 — Cam Newton

    Upon first glance, the most impressive stat line from last night’s game between the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles appears to belong to Eagles rookie running back Bryce Brown, who rumbled for 189 total yards and two touchdowns.  But one key area where Brown’s stat line was lacking was in the win column. That […]

    9 College Sports Rivalries Ruined by Conference Realignment

    Pretty much the only reason college sports are as popular as they are is that they offer tradition, loyalty, and rivalries that professional sports simply cannot. However, if you thought tradition, loyalty, and rivalries could trump the power and influence of money, well, you were sorely mistaken. As we’ve seen in recent years, university presidents […]

    Stat Line of the Night – 11/25/2012 – Janoris Jenkins

    Heading into the 2012 NFL Draft, pretty much everyone agreed that cornerback Janoris Jenkins had first-round talent.

    Scrabble In The Park

    Can Scrabble or any board game for that matter become such an addiction, such an obsession that it completely consumes one’s life? I dunno – let me check with my kids Tile & Rack – they’re 9 and 6 and a half. Journey back with me to late August of 2001. I was living in […]
