VIDEOS: all 7 Man United goals in Rose Bowl ROUT of L.A. Galaxy

Have the Baltimore Ravens improved their offense enough?

The Baltimore Ravens rode Joe Flacco’s big arm and a strong defense led by Ray Lewis to a magical Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. That was the 2012-2013 season. The 2013-2014 season was much different. Gone were future Hall-of-Famers Lewis and Ed Reed. Also gone was Flacco’s favorite target Anquan Boldin. To make matters worse, another one of his other favorite...

VIDEO: Reggie Wayne shows up at Colts camp in IndyCar

In the words of fictional Springfield news man Kent Brockman, “this barely qualifies as news.” Still it is amusing to see Reggie Wayne showing up in a race car to Indianapolis Colts training camp in Anderson, Indiana. All he needs to do is somehow employ a cornstalk and a reference to the sitcom “Parks and recreation” and Wayne would hit every single Indy stereotype in just...

Manchester United predicted starting XI for Rose Bowl friendly

Manchester United will kick off in a matter of hours at the Rose Bowl, or as I call it heaven on Earth. Seriously, watching the sunset against the San Gabriel Mountains in Pasadena, California, when it’s 80 degrees on New Year’s Day, that’s living right there. That’s the high life. Sure, Louis van Gaal wants to end these U.S. preseason tours, so I guess Man United won’t...

Dave Wannstedt was the head man with the Chicago Bears from 1993-1998. During his tenure, the Bears went to the playoffs once, and won just one playoff game- a memorable New Year’s Eve 1994 upset at Minnesota led by the “legendary” Steve Walsh. After a fun-to-watch 1995 Bears team had a winning record, but failed to reach the postseason, he built up expectations in Chicago...

Carolina Panthers will have fierce defense, running game in ’14

The talent is definitely there for the Carolina Panthers on D. However, it seems that everyone else in the NFC NASCAR division improved, or at least they addressed their weaknesses this offseason. The Panthers tried but got worse. The Atlanta Falcons should leapfrog Carolina this year. And the Saints are a notch or two above both of the teams. That said, I would not be surprised...

VIDEO: Cubs fans excited about FAKE Cubs prospects

Some experts believe the Chicago Cubs now have the best farm system in all of baseball. So I decided to see how much those who bleed Cubbie blue really know about the blue chip prospects who might be headed to Wrigley Field one day.

The Qatar World Cup in 2022 is the most preposterous idea in the history of sports. You saw there were a couple cooling breaks in Brazil during this past World Cup when the temperature was in the mid 80s. Imagine the Qatar World Cup, where the temps reach 115-120 on average. The game LITERALLY CANNOT BE PLAYED. That’s how morally depraved FIFA is. They took the bribe and signed...
