Tara Lipinski to cover the Kentucky Derby now

If you have Tara Lipinski on your talent roster, then you use Tara Lipinski every chance you can. It’s like the joke my brother-in-law once made to me. “Hey, we got airplanes, let’s use ‘em!” Olympic figure skaters Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinksi, who received critical acclaim for their figure skating analysis on NBCSN’s coverage of the 2014 Sochi Games, as well as for...

Andrew Wiggins most popular athlete in state of Kentucky, wait WHAT?

A new survey ranked the most popular athletes in every state. Andrew Wiggins was #1 in Kansas; as expected. However, Wiggins was also #1 in Kentucky. HUH? What? Que? Well, we know this survey didn’t take into account media skills; since Andrew Wiggins doesn’t have any. Seriously, a Wiggins interview is almost always as painful if not more so than any time Cody Zeller or Michael...

Pennsylvania’s most popular athlete? Not a PSU Nittany Lion!

Given how PSU football is bigger than a 1,000 Jesus level figures in the state of Pennsylvania, I was shocked and I mean SHOCKED to see who the most popular athlete in the state of Pennsylvania was. It’s not someone who plays at PSU, went to PSU or coached at PSU. I know I’m amazed. It’s actually someone who didn’t even go to college; and he’s never played for a professional...

Derrick Rose still state’s most popular athlete; despite issues (STUDY)

This NBA playoffs there is zero conversation surrounding Derrick Rose. Quite the contrast from last year at this time, when Derrick Rose was the most polarizing figure in the city of Chicago and probably the state of Illinois. The absolutely disastrous manner in which Derrick Rose and his handlers managed his rehabilitation and return made him public enemy #1. But like Ayn Rand said...

Man United transfer rumors: Louis Van Gaal, Moyes, Lallana, Strootman

Today, the biggest story not only at Old Trafford, but in the Premier League overall, is the inevitable sacking of David Moyes. If Moyes gets called into any meetings with Ed Woodward, or the Board. Or if his phone rings and it’s them, I’m sure Moyes would be feeling/thinking something along these lines: Don’t speak I know just what you’re saying So please stop explaining...

Man United to sack David Moyes today, reportedly

By now it seems inevitable that David Moyes will be ousted at Old Trafford. Someone at Manchester United leaked the story, because everyone had it, and his dismissal should be made official sometime today.

Should the 49ers stay committed to Colin Kaepernick?

I love to hear regular people talk about how pro athletes should be fired for doing dumb things. The common phase I hear when an athlete screws up is, “if I did that in my job, I would get fired immediately, so player X should be dismissed also.” This logic does not fly with me even though I do hate to see pro athletes get away with some egregious behaviors. The fact is, pro...

David Moyes getting sacked by United rumors starting up again

Another pathetic performance by Manchester United yesterday in a season of huge disappointments. Manager David Moyes again looked clueless and incapable of leadership as his old club, Everton, beat the Reds for just the third time in 19 years.

Brady Hoke has an interesting take on his 2014 Michigan Wolverines schedule.

We really don’t feature our skill guys very much.” So don’t...
