2005 PLAYOFF ABSOLUTE TOOLS OF THE TRADE DAVID CONE
Everyone knows a real patch when they see one.
There’s Patch Adams, the treacly doctor/clown portrayed by Robin Williams in the treacly doctor/clown movie of the same name.
There are Sour Patch Kids, those tasty tartaric-acid-coated gummy candies.
There’s the soul patch, as worn by your douche-chill neighbor circa 1997 (see...
Pepsi Center has been a barren place as of late, as Nuggets and the Avalanche fans have been noticeably absent. And who can blame them? Both teams are heading down the backstretch of disappointing seasons, with seemingly not much left to play for in the final month or two.
But not so fast, there are still a few reasons to head to The Can and knock back a couple of $6 beers.
Not since August 4, 1982, when Joel Youngblood saw action (and got hits!) for both the New York Mets and Montreal Expos, has Major League Baseball witnessed a player suiting up for two different teams on the same day.
Thursday, Will Ferrell did Youngblood a few times better…playing for ten teams.
The actor started his day shortly after noon in Mesa, Arizona, as a member of both...

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Forget the friends Garth Brooks might have in low places. The country music star has some high-profile buddies he can count on as well.
Like, Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas, for example.
The Pro Football Hall of Famers were among numerous current and former athletes to join Brooks in holding a football camp for more than 100 children at the Buffalo Bills' practice...

Looks like Jim is using his down time before spring practice to do things he couldn’t have done in the NFL.
The post Jim Harbaugh Hangs Out With Garth Brooks After Concert appeared first on Diehardsport.

“Some of God’s greatest gifts are [unsigned Hochevars].” — Garth Brooks
In the 2005 draft, the Dodgers did not have a true first-round pick, having lost their pick (number 26 overall) to the Boston Red Sox as compensation for signing free agent Derek Lowe. Their first pick came at number 40 overall, a compensation pick for losing free agent Adrian Beltre to the Seattle...
The Pittsburgh Steelers (past and present) can really sing. Sort of.

In a year that saw U2 give an album away for free and piss everyone off, Garth Brooks re-emerge as an “independent artist,” and former Creed frontman Scott Stapp threaten to kill the President, the music world in 2014 can be summed up with one word: pop.
The Billboard charts were dominated by artists like Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, Katy Perry, Meghan Trainor...
Oklahoma, "The Sooner State," has had its ups and downs. The Dust Bowl, twisters and "The Grapes of Wrath" have been countered by energy booms, agriculture gains and a country music hot streak (Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood).
Rams will play Raiders in St. LouisA few days before the protests in Ferguson broke out on Monday, the Indianapolis Star reported there was a remote possibility of the Rams-Raiders game being played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The game would be played on Monday night, if need be. Although the chances of that happening were slim, the news breaking that Lucas Oil would be...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Five-thousand, one-hundred and eighty travel miles. Twelve days on the road, in the air, or both. Two lost starters. A trip to high-altitude Mexico City sandwiched between back-to-backs away from the Target Center as it played host to a slew of Garth Brooks country concerts.
Injuries, attrition and ineptitude.
"It's already hard enough when you go on a 12, 13-day road...
I went to a Garth Brooks concert on Thursday night. I’m not a huge fan of Brooks, but my wife loves him and he’s one of the biggest artists of my generation. I figured seeing Brooks live would be a good time, and I was right. He was great.
My main worry about seeing Brooks wasn’t so much the quality of his performance, it was his fans. More specifically, country fans. Even...
The gauntlet begins tonight, a 6 game road trip starting in Brooklyn and moving all across the Atlantic side of the continent, including to Mexico, and ending with a SEGABABA in Dallas, the town in which I currently reside and a game I will attend. It will be a very difficult stretch that could make or break the momentum of the remainder of the calendar year or longer. Will the Wolves...
That was a much better effort.
Boy is Illinois bad. I mean really bad.
Really, really bad.
The Buckeyes could have scored 100 if they tried.
I didn’t see much of the game as I was in Lexington with 21,000 other Garth Brooks fans watching an amazing concert at Rupp Arena.
But I saw highlights and the last quarter or so. That’s enough.
I was entertained...
From here on out, I think we all want to see Ohio State win by 60 points each week.
The Buckeyes received no love at all from the playoff committee. Perhaps a pasting of Illinois and a win by Virginia Tech will help things.
But before I get too far ahead of myself, OSU has some work to do on the field after a near-debacle in Happy Valley. A seemingly safe 17-0 lead that was going...
Kauffman Stadium was raucous Tuesday night. Just ask Steve Perry.
The former lead singer of Journey has been front and center this World Series, supporting his beloved San Francisco Giants with crazy antics at AT&T Park. A few Kansas City Royals fans turned the tables and trolled Perry during Game 6 by professing their love for Garth Brooks.
Perry obviously left Kauffman Stadium...
Kansas City Royals fans hold up a sign during Game 6 of the World Series that reads: Garth Brooks is greater than Journey.

Garth Brooks just started his latest world tour…but that didn’t mean the country superstar couldn’t take a break from his unprecedented seven-night, eleven-night stint in Chicago to take in a little batting practice. That’s right, the full-time country crooner-turned-part-time spring training sideshow (he’s played with the San Diego Padres, New York Mets and Kansas City...

This will mark McClure’s 248th-career start and his 11th at the 1.5-mile speedway. McClure came home with a 25th-place finish earlier this season and his best finish of 18th came in 2011.

When he first heard that Atlanta Motor Speedway was having its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series date changed again for 2015, this time to the second race of the season, track president Ed Clark admitted his first instinct was not necessarily to be overjoyed.
