Andy Murray in High Spirits Ahead of Grand Slam Double-Header

They say that behind every good man there’s a good woman, and in Andy Murray’s case that certainly seems to be true. The Scottish star married his long-term partner Kim Sears in April in a ceremony in his hometown of Dunblane. The holy matrimony has coincided with Murray’s best ever form on clay, and not content with picking up his first ever trophy on the surface in April’s...

Confidence opens doors that nothing else can. But confidence can also be misplaced. How do you know if the shirt you’re wearing is completely ridiculous until you actually wear it outside the house? Thanks to Speed Stick, at least I had confidence in my underarm scent. But confidence was definitely not lacking for driver Cole Whitt. Even though Front Row Motorsports is at a...

Bob Kravitz mocks Phillip Dorsett pick by Colts

Most criticisms of NFL draft picks can be pretty lame as sportswriters and fans whine about certain picks. Of course that’s all part of the fun, but few of them offer much insight. This rant from Bob Kravitz, however, is worth reading for many reasons. First, he makes some great points. More importantly, much of it is well-written and hilarious! Like Kravitz points out, Phillip...

Joe Gibbs on the return of Crispy M&M’S and the forgotten Redskins’ dynasty

For an unknown reason, NFL history has robbed the Redskins dynasty of the 1980s and early 90s of the recognition it deserves. But the real question is, why? NFL fans remember the Packers championship teams of the 60s, the Steelers of the 70s, the 49ers of the 80s, the Cowboys of the 90s, and the Patriots of the present day. But no one remembers the Joe Gibbs-led Redskins. From...

Seahawks on verge of luckiest Super Bowl ever; end with biggest choke job ever

This was the greatest Super Bowl ever. The ending was stunning in so many ways, from Tom Brady leading a fourth quarter comeback against the Seattle defense, only to be followed by another miraculous catch that seemed to spell doom again for the Patriots, to what can easily be described as the worst play call in NFL history. Here are some thoughts with some real time tweets mixed...

Le’Veon Bell injury stops Steelers

If you read the Pittsburgh papers, there are plenty of reasons why this Steelers team couldn’t get past Baltimore in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. But most of that talk is just filler for sports columnists. It all starts with the loss of Le’Veon Bell who emerged as one of the top running backs in football this season. Ben Roethlisberger is still an elite quarterback,...

R.I.P. Stuart Scott

There’s sad news today as ESPN anchor Stuart Scott has passed away following a battle with cancer at the age of 49. Scott was talented and entertaining, and he was always a class act. I saw him in person several years ago at the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year awards where he was the MC as you can see in the photo above. Our thoughts go out to Scott’s family and everyone at ESPN.

What happened to RGIII?

Several years ago I attended the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year Awards and RGIII was there as one of the presenters. He was riding high as a high draft pick after the Redskins had mortgaged their future by trading a boatload of draft picks. Meanwhile, as a Browns fan, I had to hear about how the Browns blew it by not offering even more for the right to draft him. Several...

NET10 Wireless #FreedForSpeed NASCAR Event Rides Us Hard, Puts Us Back Wet

Inadvertently, the above shirtless NASCAR fan, with a canister of what we can safely assume is “Purple Drank,” a southern beverage of choice, dangling from his loins, summed up the entire three-day NET10 Wireless NASCAR event.

Let’s put aside for a moment this hideous sweatshirt Brady Hoke was wearing during today’s game, or how stupid he looked clapping and trying to rally his team after this running play was blown up by Michigan State. The embarrassment on the field is starting to be matched by the antics of Hoke and his players before and after games. The Michigan players decided to bring a stake...

The debacle in North Carolina poses a real problem for the NCAA.

Madison Bumgarner quiets Royals

The commentary above brings up a good point – the Giants probably needed this game more with Madison Bumgarner on the mound. They needed their ace to step up and he did. He also stopped the ridiculous post-season winning streak by the Royals. Now we’ll see how the Royals react. They’ve been resilient during games, and now they have to bounce back from a home loss and avoid...

The game lived up to the hype. Notre Dame gave Florida State everything they could handle last night in Tallahassee, with the winning touchdown being taken off the board on what turned out to be the correct call. Both Jameis Winston and Everett Golson were spectacular, and it seemed like whoever had the ball last would win. As it turned out, Notre Dame thought they had it but the...
