Baseball needs the Cubs to reach October

The Chicago Cubs aren't quite the "lovable losers" we've been acquainted with over the past 10 years. No, no.

Baseball's most keenly observed rebuild showed all signs pointed towards a fruitful future, but the plucking...

2015 Disgraces and Delights: Defense & Special Teams

Greetings! It's not often that I deliver a double dose of Beddict, but when Jay calls for me, I come flying like an arrow shot by Robin Hood himself! Bullseye Muthaf*cka!

The Browns are ready to shoot Mike Pettine… with paintballs

In his second year with the Browns, Mike Pettine took his team on another team-building exercise. Last year, he took them to the movies. That probably made sense in the same year that Kevin Costner portrayed a Cleveland Browns executive as Sonny Weaver in the movie Draft Day. The team-building exercise came back this year, but rather than go see Chris Pratt wrangling dinosaurs in...

‘Black or White’ thinks it’s important, but avoids tough discussion

There’s a good movie somewhere within Black or White. Unfortunately, we don’t get that movie during its two-hour run time. Director Mike Binder (The Upside of Anger, Reign Over Me) seemingly has some important things to say about race and we currently get along in modern culture, but can’t really focus those thoughts into a story. As a result, Black or White kind of feels...

For the last week we have heard about little else in the world of football outside of deflate gate.
