The Case Against Paying Joe Flacco Big Money.

Now that the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl the NFL is now going through the grueling task of getting their teams ready for the 2014 season. Some players will cash in and some will see their careers ended. A lot of current talk has come to the future of Baltimore’s top signal caller Joe

“Don’t Blame it on the Whistle”

Referees do not play the game, they officiate the game. Yes, officials do make incorrect calls at times, and yes some of those calls do happen to occur at more costly moments in a game then others. It needs to be understood that through the minutes of a game, through the blood, sweat, and tears

Time for Bud Selig to step up to the Plate

  The names are easy to remember…. Jesus, Gio, Nelson, ARod, and Braun. They are linked together in what has become the Watergate of baseball, “The Anthony Bosch notebooks”.

This Crow Tastes Like……. Falcon?

Throughout the 2012 NFL season, I was one of the bigger critics of the “Dirty Birds” in the ATL, now I have them in the Super Bowl. After a 13-3 season and a first round bye, I expected more of the same from Atlanta, loads of hype, followed by a huge letdown in the Georgia

This Is Not Your Father’s NBA, Or Is It?

The Heart of a Champion, Even in a Loss

Anyone who is a football junkie like myself can quote line after line from various sports movies. Some of these quotes can be used for humor, some for motivation. But a choice few can be used as a philosophy explaining the mindset used in competition. Enter the 1993 film The Program. “Are you hurt or
