2016 N.L. West Preview

With the Super Bowl out of the way, that clears the path for baseball! With the National Pastime right around the corner, now is a good time to preview each division starting with the N.L. West.

Which Quarterback Needs A Super Bowl Victory The Most?

So we're down to the Final Four in the NFL. Cardinals vs Panthers, Broncos vs Patriots. Each team is captained by a Quarterback in a different stage of their career, and for each one a Super Bowl victory would ...

Who Had The More Frustrating Playoff Loss: Bengals or Vikings?

We had two types of games over Wild-Card weekend: either it was a laugher of a blowout, or an improbable win under ridiculous circumstances. The Chiefs and Packers were on the plus side of the blowouts, while the Steelers and ...

Making A Murderer: What's Your Verdict?

Warning: This Post Contains Spoilers

The nation has been captivated by the Netflix documentary "Making A Murderer" since its release last month. The documentary follows Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who was wrongfully convicted of rape and served 18 years ...

Who Has The Best Lineup In Baseball?

In the current, post-PED era of baseball, pitching has become dominate. Runs scored and homeruns are down as a whole as compared to 15 years ago. That places a stronger emphasis on hitting. So this begs the question - who has ...

A small fix to the NFL playoffs

The Minnesota Vikings and the Cincinnati Bengals are both the #3 seeds in their respective conferences. The supposed advantage of being the #3 seed is that you get to play the lowest seeded team in the playoffs (#6) while the ...

I recently read that Gweneth Paltrow published a smoothie recipe that cost $200. The disconnect between celebrity life and real life is too wide to take anything they say seriously. Whenever they talk about getting in shape for a role ...

Like Herm Edwards said, you play to win the game. No team is playing to set arbitrary records that will make for a good episode of 30 For 30 down the road. Every team, and every player, is in it ...

Food addiction is rough because you have to eat. But Lacy should look at it like this: if he can stay in shape, he'll make a lot of money for his remainder of time in the league (likely 5-6 ...

Woo hoo! I actually had the most trouble with the more recent stuff, everything else has been pounded into my head since I was a kid. Thanks guys!

Definitely seems like a case of "he can dish it out but can't take it". When the Panthers were rolling, Cam had no issues with dabbing, or taking team photos on the sidelines before the game was even over ...

The man got another ring and will (likely) ride off into the sunset as a champion. I doubt he cares that he was statistically the worst QB to play a Super Bowl. Right now there are 31 other QB's ...

I agree with @Kurt Hirsch pretty much verbatim, so I'll give another X-Factor(s) - CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman. The Denver running game has to be top notch in order to grind down the Carolina D and keep the ...

I don't have any problem with it. It's no different than every other NFL player. Anytime someone even makes a simple tackle they have to do a little shimmy or pose or something. Just let him do his ...

I'm predicting a blow out as well, which is a shame because the vast majority of the most recent Super Bowls (Seahawks win aside) have been competitive, with several coming down to the final seconds. And this game will ...

Newton has to be number 1 for me. He can throw, he can run (and take a hit), he's young. He lost his best receiver before the season even started and still went through the league like a hot ...

Denver treated Brady like their own personal tackling dummy. It wasn't until the waning moments of the game, when perhaps the Denver D was a little gassed, that Brady showed any life. I'm sure New England will tackle ...

I did hear that this is the best combined record of two NBA opponents this late in the season. With Duncan out and the Warriors nearly untouchable at Oracle, I've got to go with the Dubs tonight.
