Weeden compares QB situation to 'backing up Derek Jeter'

Brandon Weeden was drafted by the New York Yankees in 2002, so it’s not surprising his assessment of the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback situation Wednesday included a baseball analogy. Weeden became the Cowboys’ starting quarterback in Week 2 after Tony Romo suffered a broken collarbone in Dallas’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles. With the position comes great responsibility...

Ben Affleck jumped at chance to present ESPY to Derek Jeter

Jeter's 'Players' Tribune' to become a restaurant chain?

Ed Note: The following appears courtesy the brand new Bloguin site Food & Sports.  The mission of the site is fairly self-explanatory.  If you love sports or food, or the intersection of sports and food, then check it out and learn about God’s gift to humankind known as bacon s’mores.
