My Favorite Music From 2014

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 primer: 'Consistent' Sooners, plus Chuck Norris and SpongeBob

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 News and Notes: Week 13

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...

Timberwolves deep in dredges of 'rebuilding' season

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...

5 Reasons why the Packers will beat the Eagles (and 1 reason why they might not)

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...

Game 4: Flip vs. KG and the Nyets

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...

Are You Not Entertained? Illinois

That was a much better effort. Boy is Illinois bad. I mean really bad. Really, really bad. Horrible. 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. Wheeeeee! I was entertained...

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Illinois

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...

Journey's Steve Perry trolled by Royals fans during Game 6 of World Series

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...

Barack Obama’s bro-in-law, Craig Robinson, hired by ESPN

Craig Robinson has friends in high places. Unlike myself, and Garth Brooks, who have friends in low places. However, Robinson’s political connections weren’t enough to save his job in Corvallis, Oregon. Sometimes it’s actually NOT about who you know (shocking, revolutionary concept I know) but more about the results you can produce. Robinson didn’t produce many results with...

WATCH:Garth Brooks takes batting practice in Chicago

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...

Then he started thinking about the myriad other events in the Atlanta area over Labor Day weekend, all of which syphon potential fans...

Video: This LSU Hype Video Set To “Callin’ Baton Rouge” By Garth Brooks Will Fire Up Any Tigers Fan

Lost in the many story lines of the SEC last season — like Auburn’s turnaround, Alabama’s quest for another national title, Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M — was that LSU had another really good year. The Tigers went 10-3, won the Outback Bowl, and had huge wins over Auburn and Texas A&M, yet Les Miles and co. didn’t seem to get the national attention that a team of...

Traditionally the Royals Try Too Hard for Tradition

Tradition is an extremely tricky thing. When you hit on something and it works, it can be an awesome thing. But when you’re so desperate to have a “tradition” that you try to force it, well, that’s when bad things can happen. The Royals are in that latter camp trying too hard to mess with tradition. And it’s a bad look. A little history. The Royals tried to make...
