I still contend that Manny Pacquiao was in on the fix. The 33 year old fighter only has a few good years left, and without the Floyd Mayweather bout in his future he had nothing to sell. His last few fights have been dogs. Interesting is dropping, quickly. His fight against Timothy Bradley didn’t sell [...]
Yesterday evening college football’s league commissioners and Notre Dame’s Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick finally came to an jawdropping agreement in Chicago. A plan was forged for the first playoff in major college football history. Similar plans have been proposed over the decades, usually by some yahoo who claims to have money to pass out. It [...]
I have been on vacation this past week, so to speak, and I thank Trey, JP, and Big D for pitching in like they have. Not sure if anyone has anything planned for today, but I sure don’t. Being in a house with 9 kids is making it almost impossible to get anything done. Right [...]
Or… he might be completely off his rocker. I mean, he’s talking about the possibility of FAU making the college football National Title game. There’s no way the man is in his right mind. Schnellenberger gave an interview to The University Press – FAU’s school newspaper – in which he ripped on the Sun Belt, [...]
“No. Let me get this straight. What you guys say doesn’t make me happy, doesn’t make me sad. Doesn’t do anything. It’s all about my team and us winning a game. I don’t have a personal challenge against you guys, and it’s not me against the world. It’s not the world against me. It’s [...]
If the NFL Pro Bowl ever expects to get viewers back, they may be able to learn something from the Lingerie Football league. Now, we don’t need guys like Nick Mangold running around scantily dressed, but maybe have some of the fire that these women have. Check out these punches to the belly from their [...]
If you aren’t a Kevin Love fan, then you don’t pay enough attention to the sports. The Minnesota Timberwolves forward was visiting Jimmy Kimmel and joked about how we was going to make the US Olympic basketball team for one reason, because he is the “token white guy” Of course, the original Dream Team had [...]
Tampa Bay reliever Joel Peralta was ejected in the Rays’ 5-4 victory Tuesday night after Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson asked the umpires to check his glove while the pitcher was warming up in the eighth inning. A quick check by umpire Tim Tschida revealed a “significant amount” of pine tar. Ideally the substance would [...]
We’re smack in the middle of the NBA Finals, but in this lockout season, the draft is a mere 9 days away. So while Miami and Oklahoma City duke it out on the court, teams are actively scrambling to reshape their futures. An early report from Cleveland has LeBron James’s former employer taking Florida’s Bradley [...]
College football’s out of conference schedules are a subject that get more debatable play than pretty much any topic in sports. You can probably thank the BCS for that, but in all honesty, it does mean something. In the true stride of needing something to fill the pages in the offseason, the Oklahoman ranked the [...]
If you managed to make it past the witching hour last night, and saw the end of the Miami-Oklahoma City game you know what’s up. OKLAHOMA CITY IS DONE. It’s not that they didn’t play well, because they did, and they have all series. They just made so many late mistakes that a young team [...]
With England leading 1-0 in 62nd minute of yesterday’s European Championship match, the Ukraine scored…only they didn’t. If you recall, England found itself on the wrong side of a similar situation at the 2010 World Cup against Germany. We all know the Ukraine won’t let this down. UKRAINE IS GAME TO YOU?!
WHERE'S THE BEEF?
An Indoor Football League team decided to skip a playoff appearance it had earned. It's a very interesting reason why.
The Miami Heat are currently up 2-1 heading into tonight’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and fans know exactly where to be to watch game 4. But if they want to travel back to Oklahoma via caravan to watch Game 5, they are going to need to learn where the state is. I lived [...]
New York Jets back up QB Tim Tebow racked up the awards while he was at Florida, but he had yet to bring home any hardware until today, when the Pro Football Writers of America named him the recipient of the Good Guy Award. I know what you are saying, just “what is the Good [...]
Former lightweight championship boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho has a court appearance this morning stemming from a 2011 child abuse charge. Camacho has been accused of attacking his son during an argument at his ex-wife’s home. His attorney, Linda George, has told the press this is all a misunderstanding that stemmed from a verbal argument, in [...]
Nobody has been blown away by the little evidence that the NFL has released publicly in regards to the alleged bounty program that the New Orleans Saints had been running for the the past few seasons. All that Commissioner Goodell and his office have given to are 200 pages of what is supposedly a 50,000-page [...]
New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and his buddies seemed to have a little too much fun in Aspen during what could be described as a type of bachelor party. They had a run-in with security at the 30th annual Aspen Food & Wine Classic. My guess is that there was plenty of wine [...]
And I didn’t go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I’ve helped. There are many that I didn’t have—I hardly had any contact with who I have helped in many, many ways. That quote, and what you yourself can listen to, is a part of the interview with Jerry Sandusky from [...]
Back in 2004, Doug Mientkiewicz was accused of “stealing” the game ball that recorded the final out of the Red Sox’ first World Series win in 86 years. It took eighteen months, but the story finally blew over – once Dougie permanently “loaned” the ball to the Baseball Hall of Fame on behalf of the [...]
While everyone had their eyes glued to their TVs watching the US Open and the NBA Finals, everyone in San Diego was pumped up for the biggest sporting event since Trevor Hoffman was taken deep by Scott Brosius way back in 1998. We are talking about the 7th Annual Dog Surfing Competition. The competition takes [...]
We saw one of the more awkward post event interviews after the finish of yesterday’s US Open. As the video clearly shows, a fellow, wearing a British flag tuque and windbreaker jumped into the frame and starting making bird-like noises as NBC’s Bob Costas was interviewing US Open champion, Webb Simpson. He was quickly pulled [...]
LSU lost to Alabama, 21-0 back in January. Forgotten in that mess of a game, was the fact that LSU won the SEC Championship about a month earlier. Winning the SEC Championship entitles your players to a SEC Championship ring, regardless of what happens in the postseason. LSU recently released the design of the rings [...]
NO LAUGHING MATTER
The man whose emails set off the NFL's investigation into the Saints' bounty program is now claiming that what he sent was meant to be taken as a gag.
Fans in Flushing were in for a treat yesterday when Eli Manning tossed the Fathers’ Day ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field. (I always thought the rule was Giants-Yankees; Jets-Mets? Whatever) He arrived at the mound with his daughter, Ava in his arm and lofted one of those famous Eli passes that we’ve seen go [...]
