Winnipeg Fans Carry “Oh, Canada” in Tribute to the Fallen

I’ve been struck all week by the show of solidarity and respect by Canadians all across that nation following the shooting deaths of Patrice Vincent and Nathan Cirillo. The incredible Highway of Heroes spectacle. The universal rallying. It spoke volumes to me about that culture and its people…while reminding me of where we may often […]

LeBron Returns to Akron in Powerful New Beats by Dre Commercial

Beats by Dre did it again. This time LeBron is the featured star. The formula doesn’t deviate from previous Beats communications. Because it shouldn’t. Music that tells a story. Beautiful visual storytelling. Content that makes you ponder and discuss. It’s even got its own title: Re-established in 2014. It’s a clever nod to the tattoo […]

Sanchez recommends the chicken fingers to Nick Foles

We like Mark Sanchez. For serious. Decent guy. Got a bum deal in New York. Still, not a very good NFL quarterback. That doesn’t stop him from making headlines — even as a backup signal caller in Philadelphia. Thank goodness for microphones on the field. And thank goodness for Sanchez continuing to feed whatever cravings […]

Royals have “we don’t suck anymore” postseason apparel

The Kansas City Royals magical postseason continues. After a 2-1 victory at home over the O’s last night, KC is one win away from the World Series in their first postseason appearance in 30 years. It’s been a long time since 1985 when the Royals were baseball royalty. Fans and the team acknowledge such. In fact, they’re […]

The Florida Panthers have a slight attendance problem

The Florida Panthers played their second home game of the young NHL season on Monday night at the BB&T Center. The announced attendance was 7,311. The arena seats nearly 20,000 for hockey. As the puck dropped tonight against the Ottawa Senators, it was an ugly scene is South Florida. Ottawa Sun reporter Bruce Garrioch captured […]

Tony Sparano looks to bury the past for Raiders…uses football to demonstrate

Tony Sparano has been handed the reins of the Oakland Raiders…at least on an interim basis. The coach is ready to do anything to start to change the losing culture of the 04 silver-and-black. He is apparently starting with a metaphor. How powerful a metaphor…well, I’ll leave that up to you. You see? He’s BURYING THE […]

    J-E-T-S: Just End the Season, Indeed

    Six wins is a stretch goal. The Jets are that bad. I guess many of the pundits knew that going into the season. Maybe some of us fans simply got sucked into the sometimes mystical fairyland that one allows hims or herself to travel to when the record is 0-0 and there is no tarnish […]

    Missing the magic of postseason: Benny and the Mets

    The chill — and the chills -of October. The crowds. Postseason slogans. Waving towels. Drama. Storybook tales. I love every minute of it. I also miss it horribly. As I’ve managed to sneak in a few minutes here and there of the initial contests of this 2014 baseball postseason, it’s reminded me about all that […]

    Marcus Mariota is a top pick?

    Am I missing something? No, really. What gives? No offense to Mr. Mariota, but I though NFL Draft projections haven to to with professional football capacity and application of skills…or is it simply about stats that look good on a piece of paper? I’m starting to think it’s a little bit leaning towards the latter. […]

    FSU’s #askjameis twitter party probably not such a good idea

    I’m consistently amazed at how dumb supposedly educated people can be. Yesterday, someone on the Florida State PR/communications team stood idly by and let an absolutely moronic idea come to life…like, in real life. The Seminoles, in an effort to “to continue to find ways to connect our fans and the players they support,” opened […]

    Jets fans’ biggest nightmare: Thursday night in Foxboro

    Awwww, shucks. Figures. Brady and the Pats hitting their stride. A five-game slide for Gang Green that continually seems to find new depths in a seemingly bottomless barrel of crap. Why not have this be our Thursday night engagement? Pace is right. They DO have it out for us. The FANS. Forget about the game […]

    Time to say no to public pooping, mkkayyy?

    Welcome to a new feature on LCG entitled “WTF.” In today’s edition, we say WTF to the child (notice I don’t say BABY) dropping a deuce in the middle of my neighborhood playground this past Sunday. Moreso, a special WTF to his parents. OK, so I like to make it a habit of NOT being […]
