Here’s to the game

By | Feb 7, 2011

Believe it or not, I was actually initially planning to write a post on Super Bowl XLV being the first proper Super Bowl blowout since Super Bowl XXXVII. After the Packers raced out to a 21-3 lead, it seemed like a reasonable idea for a post for this blog. So of course the Pittsburgh Steelers…

Meet the New Boss….Same as the Old Boss???

By | Feb 4, 2011

I’ve never really made any attempt to hide how much of a Buffalo Sabres fan I am. I fell in love with the team during the spring of 2006, when they were a couple injured defensemen away from advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals to face a far inferior Edmonton team and when I’m feeling…

The mess that are the Mets

By | Feb 4, 2011

As a New York Mets fan I’m used to being disappointed by the team I root for. Saying you rooted for the Mets was a badge of honor that you wore proudly. Yes we have had tough times in the past but there was always the Miracle Mets of 1969 taking down the juggernaut Orioles…

All-Star Games

By | Jan 31, 2011

Did anyone watch the NHL All-Star Game or the NFL Pro Bowl yesterday? Yeah, me neither. I love watching hockey and football’s pretty high up on my list of favorite sports to watch but when it comes to All-Star Games, they’re just not as much of a must-watch event as some of the actual meaningful…

Flat Out This Is A Boring World Series

By | Oct 30, 2010

I called it when the LCS series were coming to a close. If the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers both advanced to the World Series to play against each other, it would be hands down the most boring Fall Classic in baseball history. After Games 1 and 2, I rest my case. The most…

Point Blank: The NFC Stinks!

By | Oct 30, 2010

The two teams that share the best record in the NFC currently are the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons. Neither of those squads would be playoff teams in the AFC. Period. It’s been a trend over the past decade and a half that the AFC has been the better conference in the NFL. Well,…

Texas In The Big Show

By | Oct 23, 2010

Last night, the Texas Rangers closed out the New York Yankees 6-1 in Game 6 of the ALCS to advance to the team’s first World Series appearance in franchise history. That includes their predecessors the Washington Senators as well. Unbelievable. Who would’ve thought this Rangers team could even get by the Rays in the ALDS?…

MLB Playoffs Living Up To Excitement

By | Oct 16, 2010

As the League Championship Series begin, it’s real hard not to get excited about what’s transpired so far in this year’s baseball postseason. Some nay-sayers might think that since two of the LDS series were sweeps and only one went five games that it has not been thrilling to watch. Quite the contrary. Here’s just…

Thoughts On Much Anticipated McNabb Return

By | Oct 5, 2010

After a week long of speculation about how Donovan McNabb would be received by his former fan base, what actually happened was not a shock, even though the other way would’ve been more fitting. McNabb was cheered and given a standing ovation when his named was announced to the crowd. It was a classy gesture…

Too Boo or Not To Boo…That Is The Question

By | Oct 3, 2010

It seemed like yesterday during that April Saturday in 1999 when 30 die heart Eagles fans appropriately dubbed “The Dirty 30” booed Donovan McNabb on draft day. Twelve years later, that moment is still brought up in several conversations regarding the now Washington Redskins quarterback. It’s used to stereotype Philadelphia fans as distasteful and give…

Age Limit On Wearing Current Players’ Jerseys?

By | Sep 26, 2010

The natural maturation of a child into a teen, adult and eventually elder has various stages. Putting aside the physical changes of people, it’s no secret that growing up brings “growing out of tendencies.” At age 11, a kid who always loved playing with toy legos may become interested in violent video games. A little…

For Thos Who Didn’t Know, Andy Reid is Really a Politician

By | Sep 24, 2010

Point blank fact – Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is a politician. He’s not  a football coach. He’s not a talent evaluator. He’s a back stabbing politician looking to have his own butt and job security. Following the Eagles 35-32 victory over the Detroit Lions last Sunday with then back-up quarterback Michael Vick leading…
