Redemption for Lebron James

Lebron James did the right thing – he’s coming home. I say “coming home” because I’m writing this from the Cleveland area and was pleasantly surprised to see Lebron right the wrong of “The Decision” in such a classy way with “The Letter.” Everyone can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to come home, but the folks in Northeast Ohio really needed to hear this from...

Fans celebrate Team USA victory

The scenes in this video from Hermosa Beach are pretty amazing and were replicated in other parts of the country like Grant Park in Chicago. Team USA’s victory over Ghana may not have been pretty but fans rejoiced nevertheless. Now things will get tougher with Portugal, a team coming off an embarrassing loss against Germany. Team USA has shown it can score, and that’s critical...

Epic rant from owner of California Chrome

Like many, I got to see this epic rant live, and it’s amazing what people say when they’re pissed off. Never mind that this has been going on for years, as some horses show up in the Belmont Stakes to thwart a Triple Crown. That’s why it’s so damn hard. The debates on Twitter were priceless and also informative, as those who understood horse racing explained why Steve Coburn’s...

The Stakes

The stakes are huge tonight for both teams as the NBA Finals kicks off in San Antonio. For the Heat, they’ve cruised to their fourth straight Finals after toying with the pathetic Eastern Conference. If they get the three-peat, then we’ll have to start listening to pundits discuss where this team ranks among the all-time greats. The same goes for Lebron. But the flip-side for...

Hate-Watching the Pacers

Jason Whitlock can be full of himself at times, but he’s still one of the best sportswriters out there. This recent column about the pain he experiences in watching his beloved Pacers is biting and hilarious. Of course he’s not the only one mocking Roy Hibbert and the emotionally fragile Pacers, but Whitlock does it more eloquently.

Heat flop their way to victory

Yes, the Heat have been dominating the pathetic Pacers since the second half of game 2. So don’t get all excited over the headline here. But the flopping by Dwyane Wade we see in this photo is so lame it needs to be pointed out. Lebron James had how own flop during the game as well. These should be technical fouls. Period. Perhaps we just need another official who has all the TV...

Johnny Manziel likes to party

Right – like we didn’t know this already. Well, stuff like this will get plenty of attention, because Johnny Manziel loves the attention and outlets like ESPN can’t talk enough about him. The whole topic is already exhausting. In the end, the key here is whether he can perform at the highest level while maintaining this partying lifestyle. The best quarterbacks live and breath...

Who will contend for College Football Playoff?

The BCS is dead. Finally! We’ve been complaining about it for years, and now we finally have a playoff system, so all of the debate around who is the best team in college football can at least be expanded to the four best teams who should play in the playoff. All of the debate on ESPN and other outlets will still be annoying, but at least the end result is somewhat more rational...

There’s a war going on that you may not even know about. We hear a lot about world events like missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, Syria and the Middle East. But one thing we don’t hear about is the overspraying epidemic that exists for 75% of guys.

California Chrome wins the Kentucky Derby

California Chrome was the favorite to win the 2014 Kentucky Derby, and the chestnut colt purchased for $10,000 will certainly get the Triple Crown talk going again. The story behind this California-bred horse is pretty awesome, as two average Americans from California dubbed “dumb asses” by a trainer when they got into horse racing somehow managed to win the Kentucky Derby.

The NCAA’s idiotic drug test penalties

It’s fashionable these days to bust on the stupidity of the NCAA, but they keep making it so easy. The latest fiasco involves Mitch McGary being suspended for a full season for failing one marijuana drug test. Now he’s heading off to the NBA. The NCAA has archaic and idiotic rules. Everyone knows that. Now we’re learning that it takes years to get rid of some of the dumbest...

Can we finally get a Triple Crown winner?

The Triple Crown was part of my childhood. I was a little too young to appreciate Secretariat in the early 70s, but Seattle Slew and Affirmed were both incredible horses and I remember those vividly. Seattle Slew was dominant in 1977, even if it wasn’t celebrated quite as much as the legendary Secretariat. Affirmed was special due to the classic rivalry with Alydar in one of the...

Bullz-Eye on location at Daytona 500 with Jimmie Johnson

I have never been a NASCAR fan. For a guy who loves sports, I knew more about curling than I did NASCAR. I could never understand why watching cars making hundreds of laps was so popular. Then I attended the 2014 Daytona 500 in Jacksonville, Florida courtesy of Lowe’s and my life changed. I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve watched each of the ensuing races in Phoenix and Las Vegas...

Schaub and Vick find landing spots

There’s been an unual amount of logic to the quarterback moves this offseason, with today’s moves making sense for both the Raiders and Jets. The Raiders sent a late-round pick to the Texans for Matt Schaub, who is coming off one of those season where everything went wrong. We’ll see if he can turn things around in a place like Oakland, but that franchise is desperate for steady...

With the 2014 NFL Combine coming to an end, teams will have poked, prodded, questioned and scrutinised every last prospect.
