5 March Madness Teams that Could Be Celebrities

So, who got screwed over by Baylor and Iowa State last week, huh? If you’re anything like me, you were screaming obscenities at your TV as your bracket was busted within hours of the start of March Madness. The first week was whirlwind of upsets, lopsided victories and downright nail biters, or in other words, exactly what we want when the calendar hits March. As I watched the...

March Madness Trivia: Cinderella’s & Legends

After an exciting first weekend of March Madness tournament action, there were some interesting story lines, as always. UCLA is still playing after everyone told them they didn’t belong in the tournament, albeit due to a questionable goal-tending call. Wichita St. is making some noise and could potentially have a matchup with Kentucky in the Elite 8 to avenge last season’s...

Terribly Awesome Basketball Card: Sean Miller

This Sean Miller basketball card has all the hallmarks of 1990s white guy basketball high fashion. Let’s start from top to bottom with Miller’s non-descript haircut and clean-shaven face, lest anyone think he is a scruffy hooligan. He wears a baggy t-shirt under his jersey, because clearly, he doesn’t want to intimidate anyone by exposing those guns. The jersey itself even...

3 Favorite March Madness Cinderella’s

March Madness is the sporting event equivalent of Bret the Hitman Hart – the best there was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be. No debate. Every year everyone drops what they are doing to get engulfed in all things NCAA tournament – calling in sick, watching at work while the boss turns his/her head, brackets more prevalent than Shawn Kemp paternity suits, and...

Greatest Ben Gordon Call Ever

Last week I was going through my email archives from when Hotmail and Yahoo were fighting for supremacy to try and find some stuff about a unique March Madness pool I’m part of. Then I came across this gem which was very indicative of my life as a 26 year old at the time. I got a good chuckle out of it plus had the greatest call about Ben Gordon’s career ever so I decided that...

Live from Pittsburgh: A Gamblers Day 1 NCAA Tournament Diary

On a momentous March Thursday in 1997, my dad allowed me to play hooky from high school and we headed to Pittsburgh’s Civic Arena for the first round of the 1997 NCAA Tournament. The day consisted of four games, one of which featured #15 Coppin State Eagles beating the #2 seed South Carolina Gamecocks. At the time, it was only the third occurrence of the underdog besting the favorite...

The tournament is always filled with amazing games and astonishing upsets and this year has been no different...

It’s March and America rejoices! Not only do we get St. Patty’s Day, our favorite excuse to party and pretend we’re Irish, but we get March Madness, a multi-week holiday in its own right. As I filled out one of my three brackets the other day, I couldn’t help but wonder: Am I going to be the girl that upsets all of the dudes in this year’s pool? That got me thinking about...

The Business of College Basketball Jerseys

College football jerseys have been big business for awhile. During the 1990s, Nike aligned themselves with the University of Miami, and the success of the Hurricanes program helped the company raise itself to new heights. The next big milestone was when Nike and Oregon teamed up to begin their run of creating weird, crazy, and loud jerseys. It resonated with recruits, and as Nike...

9-Man Baseball Movies Starting Lineup

Baseball movies are the best. Seriously, I dare you to name one baseball movie that sucks. Fine, “Summer Catch” happened, but other than that, there are very few black marks on the collective resume of baseball flicks. Hollywood has created some iconic baseball players, but when it comes down to it, which of these characters would you actually want in your 9-man starting lineup...

Larry Bird Dunking Mix

Located inbetween the era of Dr. J and Air Jordan dunks is the Hick from French Lick throwing down the rock. Larry Bird dunking is like the unicorn of the sports world because it happened so rarely. Thankfully, we’re now just a YouTube search away from seeing the glory of the original white man that could jump. Yeah he could shoot the lights out on any given night (including...

Raplete Review: Los Angeles Rams Ram It

Ram It by the 1986 Los Angeles Rams is the raplete equivalent of Sugarhill Gang’s Rappers Delight. This old school trade-off rap has timeless appeal. Sure, it was not the first of its kind (the 49ers made a group song in 1984) or the most popular (the Bears 1985 Super Bowl Shuffle inspired many imitators), but it is by far the most entertaining of all of the team songs of the...

Yinzing In Free Agency with Duce Staley

NFL free agency starts tomorrow and what better way to kick off the signing period than by commemorating one of the mediocre signings the Steelers had. Duce Staley was a stud on the Eagles when healthy. He ran like a bowling ball and was a good receiver out of the backfield. That sort of combo made his signing in Pittsburgh very tantalizing, especially when teamed up with an even...
