Royal Rumble Fallout:The Problem with Wrestling is the Fans

There is no soundtrack to accompany the picture above but for the uninitiated to the bizarre world of professional wrestling that is the likely next World Heavyweight Champion being jeered out of the building in what should have been his finest hour. Roman Reigns, of the wrestling royalty Anoa’i family, began grooming to be the […]Continue reading...

R.I.P., Ernie Banks

Ernie Banks, one of baseball’s all time greats, passed away on Friday at the age of 83. Condolences to his friends and family. Ernie Banks is famous as the all-time greatest Chicago Cub but his whole life he was a trailblazer in and out of baseball. He started his career in the Negro Leagues before […]Continue reading...

Klay Thompson sets the NBA record for points in a quarter

Sitting on my couch trying to convince myself to be healthy I decided to flip over to the Warriors-Kings game because the score was tight for the first half and DeMarcus Cousins apparently played the whole first 24. So by dumb luck I ended up watching NBA history as Klay Thompson turned into an NBA […]Continue reading...

Get to know the 2015 NFL Draft “risers” now!

I know some of you sick ***** will torture your souls this weekend by watching the Pro Bowl. I hope to god that makes you feel just terrible.

DeflateGate Day Four: It really is a league matter now

After listening to the press conferences from Bill Belichick and Tom Brady today, a thought hit me: Everything we think we know so far about the league’s investigation has come from a single “sourced” report from ESPN’s Chris Mortenson. So truthfully, we don’t “know” anything. The sheer fact that the NFL has remained so silent […]Continue reading...

Jimmy Walker Playing the Role of Tom Lehman

My first post in this space on the Ryder Cup looked ahead at players who were likely to rise and fall over the next two years in the run up to 2016 and Hazeltine. Here is what I wrote about Jimmy Walker’s prospects: “Jimmy Walker. Wait! Walker was one of only about 3 guys who […]Continue reading...

THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED LINK DUMP

OK, I don’t have time to write the stuff I want to write but the power of Christ compels me to post something so here you go: Anybody here ever tried ayahuasca? I feel certain it can cure all that ails me and I sort of plan to seek it out for some therapy purposes. […]Continue reading...

TVF predicts the NFL Playoffs: Conference Championship Week

Even the hottest teams sometimes falter and last week was the exception that proved the rule when the Seahawks got a few lucky bounces and beat the Panthers and the spread. My hot hand cooled just like the Panthers as my record was a poor 1-3 after a solid 2-2 the week before. If this […]Continue reading...

Occupy Golf and the Rio Olympics

I never saw the introduction of golf to the Olympics as a very bright idea. Seems to me participating sports should view the Olympics as the very pinnacle of achievement. Once every 4 years, hard working athletes in such endeavors as luge, water polo, speed skating, and pole vaulting to name a few ought to […]Continue reading...

Keep chopping wood, Oakland!

Sources have former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jack Del Rio heading to Oakland to take over as the head coach. Other reports seem to heavily insinuate that Mark Davis was drunk when he made the decision. More on this fluid story as it develops. The only domino left to fall in the coaching maze carousel firing […]Continue reading...

Should Ezekiel Elliott sit out 2015???????????

I write a lot of things that are dumb on purpose but Mike Florio has one-upped me with this idiotic idea. “Should this player at the most devalued position in the NFL, where even a sure shot Hall of Famer isn’t guaranteed to go top 5, sit out next season and become the running back […]Continue reading...

TVF previews the Super Rose Bowl

This is it, the very last preview post of the 2014 college football season. Depending on if there is or is not controversy in the game (or something stupid hot happening in the game) it could be the last post of the whole season. We’re into draft/recruiting season now. But I don’t come here to […]Continue reading...

Did you see the new St. Louis stadium proposal?

This post is dedicated to SportsGal, I don’t think she’s seen this yet. Planners announced an open-air stadium along the riverfront in St. Louis today in a last ditch effort to keep the Rams in the city. Right, but it’s just a blatant PR move for city officials to say, “See? We did all we […]Continue reading...

TVF picks the NFL playoffs, Division week

If you followed my advice last week you went 2-2. So I’m your go-to guy because two direct hits is a great track record. I had two direct hits just last week and how many did you have? Probably none, I’m guessing. #DirectHits are the name of the game. And #ratings. And #SizzleQRating. And #Re2pect. […]Continue reading...

PGA Tour Preview 2015

My golf watching season start has changed around a good bit over the years. For a long time, I started with the L.A. Open (never have cared for the Pebble Beach Pro Am) then later settled on Doral or Bay Hill. Oddly, I’m not sure I’ve watched much golf until the Masters the last 5 […]Continue reading...

Suddenly the Cavs are loaded!

Because of JR Smith, you see? That is the joke. Any time JR Smith gets traded I will dredge that up. Really, I mean, it seems like a pretty sweet deal for Cleveland. Iman Shumpert is a defensive stopper who’s still very young. He might never develop into much of an offensive threat but he […]Continue reading...

Rest in peace, Stuart Orlando Scott. Condolences to his family, particularly to his daughters, Taelor and Sydni.
