I for one didn’t watch a second of the guy who took over 9 minutes to descend from the heavens over the weekend. I have no plans to start drinking Red Bull because he made it. However, I had no problem watching the 30 seconds of fail from this basejumper. He survived! H/T Off the [...]
It seems like we’re in for at least 2 top 10 upsets every weekend. Nothing else would surprise me at this point. Regardless Saturday’s slate left us with a billion questions as the initial BCS rankings leaked out. Florida number 2?!!? I guess the thing to remember is that, there are like, 8 more weeks [...]
The big story from last night was not the San Francisco Giants tying the series against the St Louis Cardinals, but Matt Holliday breaking up a double-play by taking our Marco Scutaro with a hard slide into second. If you missed it, take a look. I think we need to understand the difference between a [...]
The dominant storyline of the last half of the MLB regular season was no doubt Stephen Strasburg, his surgically repaired elbow, and the decision to shut him down. After the Nationals were eliminated Friday night, the proliferation of “told you so” columns was somewhat muted, given that the Nats squandered a six run lead in [...]
Tuesday afternoon Deadspin posted a well crafted and well sourced piece about Derek Jeter’s injury, and the fact that the future Hall of Famer had utilized cortisone injections prior to his season ending injury Saturday night. The piece links several interesting items, among them Joe Girardi’s admission that Jeter took a cortisone injection, evidence of [...]
It wasn’t all great for the the New York Giants over the weekend. While the team was preparing for their best game away in San Francisco, thieves broke into several players cars, stole items from them, and even made off with some of vehicles themselves. According to a report, the burglaries took place sometime early Sunday morning, [...]
NO PLACE LIKE HOME
While the Giants were busy preparing for their game against the 49ers last weekend, thieves were busy helping themselves to several players' belongings.
In an election year, it’s wise for candidates for office to make sure that they are in front of as many cameras and microphones as possible. And while some candidates try to be as vague about their opinions as possible to court the most voters, generally an incumbent candidate for office has a bit more [...]
The Philadelphia Eagles have an awful lot of talent on their team, and haven’t quite figured out how to put it together, except for a few streaks here and there. The highs are high, and the lows are bottomless pits. You would think a team that boasts names like Mike Vick, DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy, [...]
With the lockout in the NHL rapidly reaching Mexican Standoff proportions, there is only a few ways to get your hockey fix. College hockey, which who went to a hockey school watch (Minnesota, for example) and minor league hockey. Sure there’s the AHL for good minor league, but that’s not what I’m talking about today. [...]
The year was 1992 I was a huge Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls fan. Both were dominating the sports landscape in way never seen before or really seen since. The Bulls were winning titles with ease and Jordan had endorsement deals that were seemingly endless. His face was in your face non-stop, from Gatorade to [...]
Tom Izzo really enjoys playing up Midnight Madness, the first official “practice” of the college basketball season. The Michigan St Spartans head basketball coach has dressed up as a hippie, a race car driver, Dracula, a fighter pilot, an astronaut, and Leonidas from 300. This year, he chose a character that was front and center [...]
'BE A MAN'
Ravens cornerback Cary Williams called out Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant for complaining about the referees.
Hello. We all know about Felix Baumgartner. We saw what he did. It surely was crazy. It was unprecedented. It takes balls to do that. It also means that nothing is impossible, to borrow a tagline from another brand. It means that the human spirit remains indomitable. May it inspire us the way previously unheard [...]
I swear to God, being a Red Sox fan is rubbing off on my attempts at picking games this season. Seriously. It’s almost like this is a completely lost season for me, only I’m not able to admit it yet. And after Week 5’s astonishing 4-10 showing, I’m sitting at 27-47-3 (.351). Yes, you read [...]
Good morning. Quick edition today, I’m running out the door to the local Green Market this morning, where I’ll be destroying a baker’s dozen of warm, fresh fried, apple cider donuts. Speaking of killing things, I’m 11-0 right here picking the big games the last 2 weeks. Today’s feature match-ups are a little tougher to [...]
Alex Rodriguez will not be in the starting lineup for the New York Yankees tonight in Game 5 of the ALDS. A-Rod has had a terrible series, going 2-16, including 9 strikeouts. We have lost count of how many swings and misses. For as bad as A-Rod has been, Robinson Cano is 2-18, Nick Swisher [...]
It is no surprise that John Calipari was once again able to land a consensus Top 10 recruit for the Kentucky Wildcats. This is what he does, and he does it better than anyone else in college basketball. His latest conquest was the acquisition commitment of James Young, a highly touted wing player from Rochester, [...]
Week 7 gives us one of those rare noon couch magnets as Texas and Oklahoma meet in Dallas. It’s not always the sexiest game, and usually results in a blowout, but it’s a reason to watch fotball at noon. That’s all you need. A reason. The ACC? Big East? Big Ten games with a female [...]
Facing elimination in yesterday’s Game 4 of the ALDS, the Washington Nationals needed a spark. And while Jayson Werth’s walk-off home run is the most historic moment in the teams history since moving from Montreal to DC, there was a moment in history that was used as motivation prior to the start of the game. [...]
It has been awhile since Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was a holder on field goals. We all remember what happened in the 2007 playoffs, Romo’s first appearance in them, when he botched the snap against the Seattle Seahawks on a field goal that was merely a glorified extra point. The ball went right through [...]
The Washington Nationals entered Thursday afternoon’s NLDS Game 4 trialing 2-1, and faced elimination. Jayson Werth forced a Game 5 with a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. It was a 13-pitch at bat until he put it over the fence Impressive as hell. The Nats and Cards meet again on Friday [...]
LION AND CHEATING
Recent comments by Megatron on a Detroit radio show may indicate that the all-world receiver recently tried to cover up a concussion to get back on the field.
It is a very special day here within the Victory Formation family, as one our youngest family members is celebrating a milestone in his life. Today is the 1-year anniversary of Holden “Tin Man” Flynn’s arrival to the world. Happy Birthday, Holden! You may be too young to read this, but I would wager a [...]
Longtime college football analyst Beano Cook passed away in his sleep at the age of 81.
