LATEST STORIES FROM THE VICTORY FORMATION

Charlie Weis Gunt ‘O the Day

In this wholly original idea for a new feature I would like to point your attention to something breathtakingly beautiful. This is not some leftist smear campaign against an American patriot and presidential frontrunner. This is an appreciation of a young coaching career that had brilliant ideas but no foundational support to realize them all.Continue reading...

Time to move on from the Andrew Luck Error in Indianapolis

After neck surgery knocked out Peyton Manning for the entire 2011 NFL season, the Indianapolis Colts were faced with an impossible decision. Should they move on from the only quarterback the franchise had ever known or draft some obnoxious young upstart who would bring down the franchise from its lofty perch as one of 2 […]Continue reading...

Sepp Blatter resigns amidst a really stupid idea from Darren Rovell

I went ahead and screen-capped the tweet where RTARL fanboy Rovell predicts some upstart rival to FIFA swooping in and taking over the soccer world in light of Sepp Blatter’s re-election to and subsequent recusal from the president’s chair at the only governing body capable of running the World Cup and organizing all of the […]Continue reading...

Other Important Wrestling Terms

So you’ve heard a lot about the Dusty Finish this evening, that is if you watched wrestling instead of Game of Thrones. Boy, Game of Thrones. Row your boat gentlemen. Row your boat. As such, because I’m an elitist (about professional wrestling?) I’d like to share other incredibly important terms that every hip cat is […]Continue reading...

Diary of an Atlanta boy at the Eastern Conference Finals

Driving toward downtown, most of the rest of the city seems oblivious. In the suburbs, ad hoc merchandise tents have popped up selling Hawks gear of questionable license. Along Ponce, however, you’d be hard pressed to find any evidence that the hometown hoops team was an hour and a half away from taking the floor […]Continue reading...

This is what you get for cheering for the Clippers in the first place

I had considered skipping game 6 and just going to see Fury Road tonight but I keep thinking, “hey, I’ve rooted for the Clippers when Loy Vaught was easily their best player, I should at least stick around and see them (hopefully) get to their first ever conference finals.” Right now I really wish I […]Continue reading...

Guinness Girl’s Preview to the 2015 Women’s College World Series

It’s that time of year again! Bracketology! The field of 64! Yes, that’s right. Softball!! The NCAA softball postseason starts out with the field of 64 chosen by committee. There are 32 conference winners and 32 teams chosen at large. The first round consists of regionals with teams of four, double elimination. The host team […]Continue reading...

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...

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...
