All-American Movie Football Team

Two things I have always found entertaining are sports and movies. One of my favorite things to do is merge the two. With football season around the corner, I figured now would be a perfect opportunity to pick my fictional fantasy football team, sort of. Not all of the movies I will select from will be totally fictional as we […]

Hope Solo: "Dear Diary…"

I imagine it went something like this… Hope Solo is sitting in her hotel room after the United States lost in a penalty shootout to Sweden. Her teeth are cringing. She is seething over the premature eliminaton. She begins pacing back and forth past the TV, desk and fridge at the foot of her bed. The premature elimination for the shot […]

Michael Phelps is Overrated

If you thought for a single solitary second that I would claim the absurd notion that Michael Phelps is overrated, you were sorely mistaken. However, I have heard, read and seen that preposterous claim pop up multiple times since Rio 2016 began. At 31-years-old, Michael Phelps claimed his 22nd gold medal and fourth straight 200-meter individual medley on Thursday night. Roughly […]

2016-17 Playoff Predictions

The long and dreaded wait is finally over! Football season is officially here, at least in some form. Preseason is nothing more than being friend-zoned. The flirting is there. The attraction is there. It isn’t the real thing though. Ultimately, most of us will take it. We would rather live with it than without it. The major difference…you eventually get […]

Time for me to take notice

I will shamefully admit that I have never been one to really get into all of the hype surrounding the Olympics. As a child, teenager and college student, I would check the results and see who was winning the most hardware. I could tell you about Michael Phelps, Apollo Ono, Usain Bolt, Gabby Douglas and the many polarizing athletes whose […]

All Great Species Evolve

Tyrann Mathieu, better known as the Honeybadger, evolved right before our eyes and now is the highest paid safety in the NFL. Honeybadger inked a deal on Tuesday worth $62.5 million with $40 million in guaranteed money. The Cardinals have invested what in Mathieu who was once a “sad waste of talent.” I remember August 10, 2012 like it like […]

Top 10 Quarterbacks of 2016

Another glorious NFL season is upon us. One of the most interesting that will happen in 2016 is the landscape of the quarterbacks. For starters, Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset after winning the Super Bowl last year. It is crazy to think about a Peyton Manning-less NFL. In addition to Manning retiring, there are a bunch of young […]
