LATEST STORIES FROM THE VICTORY FORMATION

NFL mock-a-mania

I had the brilliant idea to mock the commenter mock draft but you know what? You people don’t have any ******* original ideas. Except for GG picking Leonard Williams at #1 (which is actually a pretty great pick IMHO). Now I don’t have a concept at all that I’m working from, I just wanted to […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: The Worst Things in Sports, MEDIA Region, Round 1

You know them. You hate them. Oh, god do you hate them so well. They are the sports media who have simultaneously fed your addiction and ruined your enjoyment of organized athletics, each in ever-increasing measure for longer than you have been alive. I know this. We don’t have any readers that have loved sports […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: The Worst Things in Sports, FANS Region, Round 1

Here it is, a look in the mirror. Who do you hate more than you? This is like the opposite of when Time magazine named You! the man of the year. You’re terrible so let’s toast to that. Here’s your chance to vote for what about FANS is the absolute worst, and maybe we can […]Continue reading...

Does Phil Mickelson Need to Heat Up For Augusta?

With the entirety of March Madness cranking up today, it’s not quite correct that we’ve hit The Masters homestretch but surely the presumptive favorites have positioned themselves for a final kick. Just about all the big names have had anywhere from respectable to outstanding pre-Spring starts potentially setting up for an epic tradition unlike any […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: The Worst Things in Sports, ETCETERA Region, Round 1

Our first day was a rousing success by our own humble standards. I don’t think we actually got a bunch of new traffic but I didn’t hear about any glitches. You know what’s weird? I don’t have anything in here about gambling. I don’t know where I went wrong but let’s not worry about that […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: The Worst Things in Sports, ATHLETES Region, Round 1

Well, technically the play-in games were a success! The votes worked even if there weren’t very many of them. But there is more hate to spew, and we need to focus on the task at hand. Let’s revel, all of us here, in those things that make us scream at our computers. Let’s rejoice in […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: the worst things in sports selection show, pt. 4

You went and saved the worst for last! Honestly, probably could have made a full 68 entries just on this heading. This is the easiest part of sports to hate. It’s all terrible. I don’t know how I cut off where I did. Some of these things should have been way lower but I wanted […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: the worst things in sports selection show, pt. 3

This was, somehow, the hardest bracket to fill for me. Maybe that’s because I’m attributing things incorrectly? Fans are, in general, the absolute worst thing in sports but I had to really dig and stretch to come up with 17 hateable topic headings. This should be controversial, I suppose, if we get some eyeballs on […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: the worst things in sports selection show, pt. 2

I think the concept is explained by now. You are voting on your least favorite things to advance. This is the second region to be announced, after the ATHLETES region. Please, vote. If you can figure out ways to vote more than once (I’ve got faith in you!) do so. The more the merrier. Vote […]Continue reading...

The Final 68: the worst things in sports selection show, pt. 1

It’s Brackets Season, the most manic time of the American sports calendar and I’m a mean-spirited, cynical, manic depressive guy (with a heart of gold!) so why not come to bury sports instead of celebrating them? If you came looking for something clever or well thought out, you’ve come to the wrong place. If you’ve […]Continue reading...

So…I Went Toe To Toe With Joey Chestnut

It was Saturday, March 7th. My son’s foundation, Yellow Brick Road, (cheap plug, but check us out!) had a booth at the Orlando Chili Cook-off. This year was our 4th year competing, and we were hot, having walked off with a trophy last year. I typically try to stick close to our table, slinging ungodly […]Continue reading...

Vote in the most important hot dog election of our day

In news that would surely excite Tim Ryan if he weren’t already stuffing the ballot box, the Wilmington Blue Rocks are running a promotion to name a future staple of the American diet: a hot dog covered with raspberry jam and bacon served on a Krispy Kreme donut bun. The Blue Rocks are the high-A […]Continue reading...

ANNOUNCING! The Final 68: Worst Things In Sports Tourney

This post is the press conference announcing that an announcement is upcoming. In the tradition of candy brackets and cereal brackets, I’m doing a bracket here at Sparty! You can vote! I’m going to figure this all out so hopefully Dave is reading this post and can offer some kind of guidance for making a […]Continue reading...

PAY THE CADDIES!!!!!11111

How y’all doing? Been awhile I know. I started three posts since we last met and they stunk out loud so I trashed them. I never claimed to be a writer and now I know why. It’s damn hard to come up with something mildly original even weekly never mind daily. So this post was […]Continue reading...

WIND DOWN REDUX: Some links from the weekend

I’ve got to put something here just to show I still care. I really, really do. Somehow I’ve just been completely devoid of inspiration. Oh, well. Here’s the return of a thing that maybe nobody has missed. It’s a collection of things that caught my attention the last few days while I was crawling around […]Continue reading...

SEC Basketball? It Used To Be Good!

Part of my online schtick is trolling passionate basketball fans who never fail taking the bait. The truth is there was a day when basketball was by far my favorite sport–NCAA OR NBA. In terms of understanding the game I would be more qualified to coach basketball than any other. Granted, that’s sort of like […]Continue reading...

Everyone is on Steroids Guys

Most NFL players are using a performance enhancing substance. Most NBA players are using a performance enhancing substance. Most MLB players are using a performance enhancing substance. I suspect less than those top two, but most of them. Hockey? **** if I know. But the financial benefits are the same, so one would think. MMA (and by […]Continue reading...

Who needs the NFL combine?

OK, that’s a trick headline. The NFL Combine is hilarious as public spectacle because it’s well-nigh unwatchable and doesn’t really show an NFL fan anything worthwhile about how these youngsters will play once they hit the league next year and beyond. From a team scout’s perspective the Combine is an incredibly valuable assessment tool for […]Continue reading...

Chipping Yips: Physical or Mental?

Last Friday as Tiger Woods was in the process of shooting a cataclysmic 82 in Phoenix, I opined in The Big Lead comment section I had never heard of chipping yips where I was promptly mocked. Now, most know that I’m not one to put a lot of thought into my comments prior to posting […]Continue reading...

Happy Football New Year!

It’s National Signing Day! The happy-happy-happiest day of the year for some football programs. Which is sad in its way, when you think about it. What good is a high recruiting ranking from Rivals if you don’t win a lot of games? But we don’t come here to argue about who is or is not […]Continue reading...

Charlie Sifford and Why His Legacy Is Limited

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post originally ran on November 20, 2014 but in honor of Charlie Sifford’s legacy we are re-publishing it today. Last week, our friend @BushMush suggested a post on Charlie Sifford in light of the announcement of his honor by the White House. This was a rather obvious topic to tackle for a […]Continue reading...

2015 Australian Open Rewind

The Australian Open closed up shop for the year last weekend in a rather mundane, chalky fortnight. This post isn’t exactly timely but I didn’t see much sense in posting yesterday in the shadows of the Worst Coaching Decision Known To Man(Trademarked). There were no titanic upsets nor any classic matches which had been routine […]Continue reading...

Super Bowl weekend post

We haven’t been writing about it much here but Super Bowl XLAX is almost here! Are you doing any betting for The Big Game? You should! It’s technically illegal for most people in the country but it’s fun and everything is sort of illegal unless you have a lot of money anyway. I’m supposed to […]Continue reading...

Plausibly Live Diary of Robert Allenby’s Press Conference in Wonderland

*Note: Anything here not in quotes is the imagination of the author. It could easily be argued that imagination and Allenby’s reality are similar but nonetheless this is opinion and satire. Robert Allenby faced the press corps on Tuesday concerning his frightening brush with a real world version of Taken. There have been “concerns” that […]Continue reading...
