Juice This: The Nightmare Football League

​ On this Memorial Day weekend, let’s not forget the brave people who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, for our country.

A.J. McCarron to Andy Dalton: ‘Hopefully one day we’re both $100 million guys’

Andy Dalton is the starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals and is getting paid over $100 million to play under center. Bengals’ fans cringe at that statement. According to Dalton’s backup, A.J. McCarron, he sees himself just as worthy as the incumbent. The former Alabama quarterback told the Cincinnati Enquirer that while he believes Dalton is truly the quarterback...

Realistic Expectations for FSU in 2015

With the recent news of former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson transferring to Florida State, it’s time to gauge the expectations for this 2015 squad. First and foremost is talent — the basic threshold of any team looking to win a national championship is recruiting more blue chip (4 and 5 star) players than not. FSU does meet this benchmark at the sixth-best rate in the...

UFC 187: Travis Browne vs. Andrei Arlovski (Video Highlights)

Andrei Arlovski (pictured) and Travis Browne not only used to be teammates at Jackson MMA, but they were also roommates. The heavyweights are so close that they still call each other “brother.” If that’s the case, there was some serious brother on brother crime Saturday at UFC 187. Arlovski entered the scrap as more than a 3-1 underdog, but managed to turn back the hands of...

Fair’s Fair, Except When It’s Unfair

Perhaps one of the “fairest” ballparks in Major League Baseball (not to mention the most beautiful), PNC Park in Pittsburgh has seemed a little biased against the visiting Mets these past two games. Even Matt Harvey seemed a little “penetrable” with his back to the Allegheny on Saturday. The test, I believe, the Mets will be facing the next four and a half months is how...

Yankees game 44 preview (5/24/15)

Chris Capuano (0-1, 12.00 ERA) and Yovani Gallardo (3-6, 4.26 ERA) close things out at the stadium on Bernie Williams Day. This will be Capuano’s second start of the year off the DL, the last one being not so impressive.

Analyzing the Philadelphia 76ers Draft Options

After another year of tanking, the Sixers were rewarded with the third overall pick in the draft. If there’s one thing we know about Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie, it’s that he’s going to take the best player available. Because of this, what the Sixers do is going to entirely depend on how the first two selections go. If Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor go number one and two...
