Juan Mata writes final blog of the season; summarizes 2014-15

Manchester United Midfielder Juan Mata has been publishing his thoughts on the season via his blog on the official team website. As you know it was a very up-and-down year.

2015 MLB mock draft version 5-27-15

Welcome to 2015 MLB Mock Draft version 1.0. The 2015 Major League Baseball Draft, round one, is June 8th.  It then continues through the weekend all the way to round 40. I’m not sure if there’s another independently owned and managed site that does a mock draft for baseball, basketball, football and hockey like we do. Maybe there is another “mom and pop” shop out there...

For Chicago Bears, NFL fans, how much is “enough?”

The story of the day is former NFL Defensive Lineman getting arrested for domestic abuse and child endangerment. This is his third arrest in nine months, and we can all safely assume that he’s one God Awful human being.

VIDEO: Buffalo Bills CB bowls a strike without looking

Buffalo Bills Cornerback Ron Brooks bowled a strike without even looking. It’s a very interesting and unorthodox form he’s got here. But hey, go with whatever works right? It’s kind of a long-snapping, “granny shot” in basketball hybrid thing going on. In the video below you can also see the cool bowling shirts that Buffalo Bills Coach Rex Ryan got for his team. Because...

We’ve said numerous times how underrated and important Michael Carrick is, and it seems Manager Louis van Gaal is expressing similar sentiments about his value.

Chelsea News: Begovic, Drogba, J.J. Watt, Title celebration

Chelsea ran away with the title this season. They just dominated, start to finish, and they never really had any competition for the championship. Although they won the title weeks ago, today it was awarded to them. Here are some photos from the scene.  Perhaps the best defender in NFL football, the Houston Texans J.J. Watt is a huge Blues supporter, both literally and figuratively...

The goalless endeavor was even more boring than it sounds. However, it did have significance, as the Tigers were sent down and Victor Valdes...

Liverpool News: Rodgers hot seat, Sterling saga, 6-1 humilation

What a horrifying way for Steven Gerrard to go out! It’s probably the worst half of football we’ve seen from Liverpool since…well as long as most of us have been alive anyway.

Guide to Indy 500 Museum; Photo of 1st ever Indy 500 car

I visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum in mid-March 2014, just hours before Michigan State thrashed Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament Final. I used what scarce vacation time I had to take in Indy 500 history and Indy 500 culture. It was literally 26 degrees outside, with a wind chill of 10 that afternoon, in Mid March (just in case you needed yet another reminder of what...
