Rutgers football, the Big Ten team that no one in Big Ten country actually cares about. You can say the same for Maryland too. This is year two of this odd arrangement and we’re still not buying in.

John McDonough failed the Blackhawks community today; miserably

John McDonough, the so-called genius of message control and marketing, defined today’s Patrick Kane and Chicago Blackhawks press conference with two soundbites. “I can assure you I am anything but tone deaf,” he said in response to a reporter who asked the best question of the day. McDonough actually didn’t have any response to this journalist, who showed strong reporting...

Patrick Kane, Blackhawks press conference in Tweets

The Chicago Blackhawks and Patrick Kane are in an extremely tough spot.

Make no mistake though, Patrick Kane, and the Blackhawks brass in charge of this thing are not sympathetic...

You think Roger Goddell knows the meaning of life?

Given the gluttonous nature of the NFL, we might as well call the commish Mr. Creosote. As the mouthpiece of a group of owners who now preside over...
