LATEST STORIES FROM LEGEND OF CECILIO GUANTE

Winnipeg Fans Carry “Oh, Canada” in Tribute to the Fallen

I’ve been struck all week by the show of solidarity and respect by Canadians all across that nation following the shooting deaths of Patrice Vincent and Nathan Cirillo. The incredible Highway of Heroes spectacle. The universal rallying. It spoke volumes to me about that culture and its people…while reminding me of where we may often fall short here in these United States. On...

LeBron Returns to Akron in Powerful New Beats by Dre Commercial

Beats by Dre did it again. This time LeBron is the featured star. The formula doesn’t deviate from previous Beats communications. Because it shouldn’t. Music that tells a story. Beautiful visual storytelling. Content that makes you ponder and discuss. It’s even got its own title: Re-established in 2014. It’s a clever nod to the tattoo inked in the King that reads Akron:...

Sanchez recommends the chicken fingers to Nick Foles

We like Mark Sanchez. For serious. Decent guy. Got a bum deal in New York. Still, not a very good NFL quarterback. That doesn’t stop him from making headlines — even as a backup signal caller in Philadelphia. Thank goodness for microphones on the field. And thank goodness for Sanchez continuing to feed whatever cravings he has on the sidelines. The man who infamously treated...

Paul Rudd invites fans to his mom’s house for kegger following Royals sweep

We can’t get enough Royals right now. They’re the team to root for, if your team is long-gone (see: Me/Mets). Likable young bunch. “Dunce” manager whose team plays for him. Postseason-starved city livin’ a dream. Now, you can add approachable celebrity fans to the mix. Last night, following KC’s sweep of the O’s and ticket-punching to the World Series, Royals fan...

Jets fans’ biggest nightmare: Thursday night in Foxboro

Awwww, shucks. Figures. Brady and the Pats hitting their stride. A five-game slide for Gang Green that continually seems to find new depths in a seemingly bottomless barrel of crap. Why not have this be our Thursday night engagement? Pace is right. They DO have it out for us. The FANS. Forget about the game and the match-ups. The scariest part is for Jets fans. Thursday night in...

Royals have “we don’t suck anymore” postseason apparel

The Kansas City Royals magical postseason continues. After a 2-1 victory at home over the O’s last night, KC is one win away from the World Series in their first postseason appearance in 30 years. It’s been a long time since 1985 when the Royals were baseball royalty. Fans and the team acknowledge such. In fact, they’re not shy about admitting it. It all leads to a great...

Time to say no to public pooping, mkkayyy?

Welcome to a new feature on LCG entitled “WTF.” In today’s edition, we say WTF to the child (notice I don’t say BABY) dropping a deuce in the middle of my neighborhood playground this past Sunday. Moreso, a special WTF to his parents. OK, so I like to make it a habit of NOT being a judgmental person. This personality trait extends particularly to parenting. It’s actually...

The Florida Panthers have a slight attendance problem

The Florida Panthers played their second home game of the young NHL season on Monday night at the BB&T Center. The announced attendance was 7,311. The arena seats nearly 20,000 for hockey. As the puck dropped tonight against the Ottawa Senators, it was an ugly scene is South Florida. Ottawa Sun reporter Bruce Garrioch captured the fan frenzy. 7,311? I’m going to call bullsh...

Golden Tate is right about Jim Schwartz: total douche move

Last weekend, Jim Schwartz was carried off the field by the Buffalo Bills following their 17-14 comeback win over the Detroit Lions. Schwartz served as the head coach in Detroit for five seasons, compiling a 29-51 record in the process. He was fired at the end of the 2013 season. Schwartz now serves as defensive coordinator for the Bills. At the time of hearing about Schwartz...

Tony Sparano looks to bury the past for Raiders…uses football to demonstrate

Tony Sparano has been handed the reins of the Oakland Raiders…at least on an interim basis. The coach is ready to do anything to start to change the losing culture of the 04 silver-and-black. He is apparently starting with a metaphor. How powerful a metaphor…well, I’ll leave that up to you. You see? He’s BURYING THE PAST. Say goodbye to the football, the SYMBOL of all that...

J-E-T-S: Just End the Season, Indeed

Every Sunday is a celebration for those playing the 2014 New York Jets Six wins is a stretch goal. The Jets are that bad. I guess many of the pundits knew that going into the season. Maybe some of us fans simply got sucked into the sometimes mystical fairyland that one allows hims or herself to travel to when the record is 0-0 and there is no tarnish on anything. But, of course...

Nats awesome Jayson Werth gnome playoff promo

The Washington Nationals begin their 2014 postseason journey in a few hours in D.C. as they get set to face the San Francisco Giants. The ‘Natitude around the capital city is strong to quite strong, so tickets are not easy to come by. However, the Nats are opening up a unique opportunity to a few sleuthing fans to score tickets to Saturday’s game two at Nationals Park. Simply...

Marcus Mariota is a top pick?

Am I missing something? No, really. What gives? No offense to Mr. Mariota, but I though NFL Draft projections haven to to with professional football capacity and application of skills…or is it simply about stats that look good on a piece of paper? I’m starting to think it’s a little bit leaning towards the latter. I certainly don’t watch every game, so my apologies if this...

Bronson’s Arroyo’s Pearl Jam ‘Alive’ Cover

Pete Rose. The Mayor, Sean Casey. Bronson Arroyo. ALL the Reds stars of every era!! Am I right? Am I right? OK, maybe it wasn’t exactly the all-time Reds hall of fame. Still, it was a decent gathering of Cincy Red Legs. Eddie and the gang were in town to rock the Queen City. They did…so I’m told by trustworthy sources. And, as you took a look at the participants in the Cincy...

Missing the magic of postseason: Benny and the Mets

Ah, the magic The chill — and the chills -of October. The crowds. Postseason slogans. Waving towels. Drama. Storybook tales. I love every minute of it. I also miss it horribly. As I’ve managed to sneak in a few minutes here and there of the initial contests of this 2014 baseball postseason, it’s reminded me about all that makes playoff ANYTHING so amazing. And while one can...

Devon Still Pep Talk Video; Her Diagnosis Made My Week

Devon Still’s story keeps getting better. In part, because he’s choosing to share it. Still is a defensive tackle with the Bengals. He’s made news for the reasons you don’t want to make news as an NFL player. His four-year old daughter Leah has/had Stage 4 cancer. The story got national attention in great part because the Bengals chose to keep Still on their practice squad...

FSU’s #askjameis twitter party probably not such a good idea

I’m consistently amazed at how dumb supposedly educated people can be. Yesterday, someone on the Florida State PR/communications team stood idly by and let an absolutely moronic idea come to life…like, in real life. The Seminoles, in an effort to “to continue to find ways to connect our fans and the players they support,” opened up the social lines to allow the Twitterverse...

WATCH: Manning brothers drop another rap video for DirecTV

If something works, you should just do it again right? Uhhh, not always. See Blues Brother 2000 for reference. DirectTV should peep the history books and learn that sequels don’t always mean “better.” Although, I guess you could argue that since I’m penning a post on this second Manning brothers rap video commercial, the marketers have won. Point taken.Still, it doesn’t...

Top Surprise College Sports Scholarship Celebrations

As a communications guy, I love it. Emotional. Real-time. Immensely shareable. As a sports fan, I love it even more. You could argue it’s getting “played out,” but I’d counter that it never really can. I’m speaking about the increasing trend in today’s social world of capturing “surprise scholarship awarding” by major college sports programs. It’s got all the ingredients...

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Welcome to Strongville. In case there was any doubt, the Texas Longhorns are now coach Charlie Strong’s team. Even if he is removing those iconic ‘Horns from everywhere you can see them. I’ll be straight up. I’ve long been a Charlie Strong fan for a long, long time. I’ve also spent a decent amount of time in Austin and probably have more burnt orange gear than any NY-bred...

Richard Sherman’s Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Patrick Peterson is a tremendous athlete and football player. In recognition of his skills, the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday rewarded him with a five-year contract extension worth $70M. It makes him the highest-paid corner in the NFL. Such contracts get people talking about the best corners in the league…a conversation that begins to naturally include one Richard Sherman. As luck...

LeBron James is Coming Home to Cleveland…and He Did It Right

The King is Coming Home There are certain sports moments that, as a human with a blog, you simply have to respond to in writing. If nothing else, because they are historic. Perhaps that phrase is an overstatement, but I’d argue not. The greatest player in the NBA — and one who continues to push himself in the G.O.A.T. discussion — is returning to the place where it all began...

ESPN Breaks Down Chestnut’s Hot Dog Stomach

Over the fourth of July holiday, Joey Chestnut continued to build on his legacy and perhaps solidify himself as the greatest competitive eater of all-time. The latest feather in his cap was another Nathan’s hot dog eating contest crown, this time taking down 69 dogs in 10 minutes. It’s a truly incredible and frightening figure to get a handle on. However, when ESPN’s Sport...

Time for LeBron to Start Acting Like He’s Been There Before

Act Like You’ve Been There Before The Miami Heat defeated the Brooklyn Nets in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday night in Miami. The Nets played poorly down the stretch, and the Heat showed their mettle. None of that surprised me. Nor did I think any of it really worth commentary. What did catch my eye though was LeBron James’s post-game reaction. I can hear...
