Overcoming all odds, the Tin Men prevail.

Meet Andrew Donnellon, he’s the 17 year old senior kicker at Cincinnati’s Purcell Marian High School. You probably haven’t heard of him. In fact, unless you read the Cincinnati area newspapers, I’m sure you haven’t. On September 8th, he stepped onto the field against cross town rival Reading High, and nailed a 24 yard field [...]

Dusty Baker suffers stroke, calls in for a week or two

Last week we heard Dusty Baker was transported to a Chicago area hospital after experiencing a couple medical issues. Initially, reports were that the 63 year old manager for the Cincinnati Reds was suffering from pneumonia. That was incorrect. Subsequent reports said he was just having issues with an irregular heartbeat. That was true. What wasn’t [...]

Ozzie Guillen responds to Heath Bell: ‘I don’t respect him as a person’

The Miami Marlins are floundering as the 2012 season comes to an end, and the cohesiveness of the clubhouse is presently absence, especially with reliever Heath Bell and manager Heath Bell. Earlier this week, Bell told Dan Sileo on WQAM that it was “hard to respect” Ozzie Guillen as his manager. This stemming out from [...]

Barack Obama takes a moment from campaigning to shake his head about replacement refs

Video: The Dark Meyer Rises

I am going to assume that Dark Knight Rises parodies are going to make their way around college football, since this is the second one we have come across since last week, with “the Dark Chiz Rises” made the rounds previously.

Notre Dame opts out of Michigan game, internet has a conniption

In case you hadn’t heard, Notre Dame has opted out of its scheduled football games with Michigan in 2015 through 2017.  The series was going to take a two year break in 2018-19 anyway, so after 2014, we’ll have at least five years without a Notre Dame-Michigan game.  For some people, this is the worst [...]

The Week That Was College Football: Week 4

What an amazing season of college football, and we’re not even through the first month. Thus far, we’ve seen two National Championship favorites go down. We’ve had no clear Heisman candidate because no one is really playing over their head, and those we thought would be have been more than average. Every conference sucks. Every [...]

Scab referees have finally overtly affected the outcome of an NFL game

Last week, I took NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to task for paying lip service to the concept of integrity, given his treatment of the labor dispute with the NFLRA.  Many had speculated, and rightly so, that no amount of grousing from NFL fans would be enough to sway the league office from their stance and [...]

Heath Bell: Ozzie Guillen is “hard to respect”

Been a long, rough season in Miami for the Marlins. Reliever Heath Bell was thought to be one of the better off-season pickups by the organization, especially since he was averaging about 45 saves over the previous 3 years.

Davey Johnson really doesn’t care what you think about him resting starters

I am not going to argue with a guy that has a World Series ring as a manager. Granted, it was 26 years ago, but Washington Nationals skipper, Davey Johnson, has been a relatively successful manager throughout his career. But, there are people who are ready to question his decision about resting his starters once [...]

Emphatically blocking a potential game-winning field goal as time expires is reason enough to celebrate, right? Well, that depends on when you begin to celebrate.
