Book Review: Baseball Maverick

Kids, don’t try this at home. Let me preface this by saying I am a big Sandy Alderson fan.  I bought this book around the start of the season and planned to give it a mostly sarcastic review, but then the Mets got off to an extremely hot start and I thought “Maybe they are revived?” so that kind of took the air out of my plan.  Now that we are at Memorial Day, the Mets...

Uncut & Unbiased: Steadicam Curve for GoPro Review

I’ve owned a GoPro for just about a year now and was excited to get my hands on the Steadicam Curve. It’s dubbed as an accessory that is best for creating smooth short clips, mainly outdoors and for use with action sports. While I didn’t dust off my skateboard or hit the slopes, I did use the Steadicam Curve a bunch of different times over the last few months. So, let’s...

Movie Review: Avengers: Age Of Ultron

This is only a third of the characters who appear in this film.   I was doing comic book movie reviews on here for a while but started slacking off after seeing “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”.  I only recently caught up on the rest of 2014 by watching “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″.  Quick review: One was awesome, one was an abomination.  Last...

#1 Overall NFL Draft Pick Jameis Winston Celebrates With Crab Legs. Seriously.

After being selected first overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, former Florida State QB Jameis Winston posted a picture of himself celebrating on Instagram.  The new Tampa Bay Buccaneers signal caller was eating, you guessed it, crab legs. Check the photo after the jump: If you’ve been living under a rock, Winston was under a lot of scrutiny for “forgetting to pay for” a few pounds...

With Kevin Love Out 4-6 Months, Should the Cavs have Kept Andrew Wiggins?

  Hindsight is 20-20, but trading the most hyped player since LeBron and other pieces for Kevin Love shortly after the draft was always a gamble.  The extremely athletic Andrew Wiggins didn’t decimate the competition during his 1 year NCAA stint, but he showed flashes of brilliance at times and would go on to handily win the NBA Rookie of the Year award while dropping almost...

Why I No Longer Root for LeBron James

LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet.  While Steph Curry will likely win the MVP award this season, anyone with eyes knows LeBron James is a better basketball player, and is more important to his team.  I used to be a fan of LeBron.  Ever since I caught wind of his high school hoopsmixtape where he was dunking on little white kids and chasing down fast breaks...

Total Sports Babes: UFC Strawweight Fighter, Paige VanZant

  Fresh off a victory over Felice Herrig, Paige VanZant has a career record of 5-1 in MMA, but is undefeated in winning over men’s hearts.  We were robbed of seeing the up-and-coming fighter on The Ultimate Fighter TV show because at the time, she was only 20 years old.  Now 21, Paige “12 Guage” (awesome nickname) VanZant is working her way up the rankings and is this week’s...

Total Sports Babes: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/MMA Fighter Gabi Garcia Transformation (Pics/Gallery)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion and soon to be MMA fighter Gabi Garcia first caught my eye when she was a guest coach on TUF with Wanderlei Silva.  Not because she was a dime, but because she was a gigantic she-hulk who could pick me up and break me in half.  She was about 225 lbs of pure bulk, making MMA legend Wanderlei Silva (204 lbs) look like a twerp in comparison: But Gabi...

Game of Thrones Season Premiere Recap: “The Wars to Come”

Guys! Game of Thrones is back! I was seriously going through some major withdrawal but thankfully, HBO was like “Nah, we got you” so now I’m fine. Is it time for a recap of the season premiere? Yep.  The episode opens up with a Cersei flashback scene where she and a random meet with a witch so she can find out her future. The witch’s prophecies were pretty spot on but the...

NCAA Men’s Basketball 2015-2016 Early Predictions

Every November I put out an article with my NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four, Championship, and All-American predictions.  I’m easily the most accurate Champion predictor in the game.  Check the report card: 2012: Kentucky Correct. Everyone else loved UNC that year. 2013: Louisville Correct. Indiana didn’t live up to the hype. 2014: Arizona Wrong. C’mon, no one saw...

What People are Willing to Trade for Final Four Tickets

  Inspired by a article I read a couple of years ago, I decided to have a little fun on Craigslist tonight and see what people would be willing to trade for this weekend’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four tickets.  I posted an ad in the Indianapolis “for sale” section on, and waited for the responses to pour in. The ad read: I have 2 Final...

How Former Slaves Helped Shape The Distinguished Kentucky Derby Tradition

  While much of the fun at the Kentucky Derby is in placing a bet and winning big, then celebrating your wins with a round of mint juleps for all your friends, there is also a fascinating culture that surrounds the Derby, which ranks the event right alongside the Master’s Tournament in Georgia and the Daytona 500 as the Big Three annual sports events in the south.

Recover from Injury, Manage Pain

Imagine the ballpark on a perfect sunny afternoon in mid-April. Fans stuffed into their chairs like sardines in a can, ready to erupt with the mighty swing of the bat. Then you hear that beautiful noise; the perfect crack of a bat when it smacks the ball just right. The runner is off with a shot in the gap. As he rounds second and digs for three you hear a second loud pop, see the...

2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four Predictions

  In November before any meaningful games had been played, I predicted the NCAA Final Four would be Kentucky, Duke, Arizona, and Gonzaga.  Halfway through the season, I dropped Arizona from my predictions and gave the nod to Wisconsin.  Lo and behold, all of those teams made the elite 8, and since Gonzaga and Duke were in the same region, only 3 of my mid-season predictions came...

Mets Fans: Your Opening Day Outrage Is Dumb
