    I’m going to go ahead and assume that you have never seen a $40-million check before in your life.  Heck, most of us haven’t…until now.

    Do you ever find yourself thinking, “man, I wish there were some kind of hybrid combat sport between boxing and mixed martial arts?” No, of course you don’t.

    I’m not a boxing expert or anything, but I imagine one of the cardinal rules of the sport would have to be something like, “when you have your opponent on the ropes, don’t let up in order to taunt him.” Unfortunately, nobody ever told this to Miguel Zuniga, and he’s obviously not one of our regular […]

    The super welterweight championship bout between Canelo Alvarez and Austin Trout at the Alamodome in San Antonio this past Saturday had a pretty interesting storyline.

    Everybody hates going to the DMV. In terms of things people dread doing, renewing drivers licenses is right up there behind having a root canal and getting audited. Of course, there’s nothing really painful about actually renewing a drivers license or buying license plate tags. You walk up, you look at some stuff, you answer […]
