Tim Sherwood was often confident during his public appearances while he held the managerial position at White Hart Lane. Sometimes he was too glib for Tottenham Hotspur.

Bill Simmons, Grantland doing an Oscars preview show

Bill Simmons may be nicknamed “The Sports Guy,” but he really knows his pop culture. His writing reflects that of an individual who watches at least 8 hours of bad television per day. He must have a team of writers, all coalescing together to consume mass quantities of trash TV and trashier music. If there’s one person the moronic “stick to sports” cliche doesn’t stick...

America is ready for Jon Stewart to replace Brian Williams

In 2006, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd penned a cover article for Rolling Stone entitled “America’s Anchors.” It featured Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert in a sentiment that was much less ironic than you might think. Back then, the idea of Stewart and Colbert being a primary source of trusted news seemed a bit novel, and perhaps a bit too progressive for some tastes...

Michigan St’s Lourawls Tum Tum Nairn: the next Magic or Mateen?

You’ll never find, as long as you search, a name in sports as unique as Lourawls Tum Tum Nairn Jr. The freshman point guard is indeed a natural man.
