LeBron James is Coming Home to Cleveland...and He Did It Right

LeBron James is Coming Home to Cleveland…and He Did It Right

There are certain sports moments that, as a human with a blog, you simply have to respond to in writing. If nothing else, because they are historic. Perhaps that phrase is an overstatement, but I’d argue not. The greatest player in the NBA — and one who continues to push himself in the G.O.A.T. discussion […]

ESPN Breaks Down Chestnut's Hot Dog Stomach

ESPN Breaks Down Chestnut’s Hot Dog Stomach

Over the fourth of July holiday, Joey Chestnut continued to build on his legacy and perhaps solidify himself as the greatest competitive eater of all-time. The latest feather in his cap was another Nathan’s hot dog eating contest crown, this time taking down 69 dogs in 10 minutes. It’s a truly incredible and frightening figure […]

Time for LeBron to Start Acting Like He's Been There Before

Time for LeBron to Start Acting Like He’s Been There Before

The Miami Heat defeated the Brooklyn Nets in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday night in Miami. The Nets played poorly down the stretch, and the Heat showed their mettle. None of that surprised me. Nor did I think any of it really worth commentary. What did catch my eye though was […]

Thank Goodness for the Draft, So the Stinkin' Mocks Can End

Thank Goodness for the Draft, So the Stinkin’ Mocks Can End

Tomorrow night, Commissioner Goodell will welcome the world to Radio City Music Hall. The Houston Texans will be on the clock. The madness will begin. Thank. Friggin. G-d. Because with that declaration, it will signal the death of the far-more-insane mock draft phenomenon. It can’t come soon enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to […]

Mets Rep NBA Style on Flight to Denver, Jay Horwitz Wins the Day

Mets Rep NBA Style on Flight to Denver, Jay Horwitz Wins the Day

This is why social media can be fun. It often gives us a glimpse into our favorite teams, players and the “life” of athletes off the field — moreso than would have been possible before. Case in point? The New York Mets NBA-themed road trip. My Metros take on the Rockies tonight in Denver. Prior […]

Frank Caliendo's Jon Gruden Impersonation is Pretty Money

Frank Caliendo’s Jon Gruden Impersonation is Pretty Money

Frank Caliendo may not be the best comedian of all time, but he does do some damn good impersonations. Whether it’s former Presidents or famed commentators, the man has a knack for becoming his subjects. We’ve loved what he’s done with guys like Barkley in the past. The latest? Caliendo tackles Jon Gruden…and does it […]

Crying youngster captures essence of Chicago Cubs fandom

Crying youngster captures essence of Chicago Cubs fandom

The Chicago Cubs haven’t won a championship in 105 years. During that century-plus, the Cubbies have not only lost. They’ve made a habit of finding new and creative ways to torture their fans. Sadly, Wednesday’s tilt at Wrigley against the Diamondbacks was simply another sterling example of the Cubs being the Cubs. And I’m not […]

Canadiens Pre-Game Video Sets the Ice on FIRE

Canadiens Pre-Game Video Sets the Ice on FIRE

It’s hockey playoffs time, people. It gets no better. And it gets no bigger. ESPECIALLY in Montreal. The most storied franchise in hockey with absolutely rabid fans. When passion is at a fever pitch, how do you manage to continually crank it up even more? Your in-game producers at the Bell Centre for game three […]

Dancing Texas Tech Coach Kliff Kingsbury Wins the Internet for Today

Winner winner, chicken dinner. Some days it’s tough to determine if the massive through that is the Internet has presented anything that is even worth taking a short swig. Other days, the winner is immediately identifiable. Today’s champ is Texas Tech Red Raiders head football coach Kliff Kingsbury. Kingsbury, who previously torched records as a […]

Mike Pelfrey Poorly Tries to Pump Up His Alma Mater Wichita State Shockers

Mike Pelfrey Poorly Tries to Pump Up His Alma Mater Wichita State Shockers

Mike Pelfrey spent several years in Queens as a member of my beloved Mets. As much as he often pained me with his on-field performance, he was always a stand-up guy. Pelfrey is now a member of the Minnesota Twins and pitched his college days at Wichita State. He’s a big Shockers backer. So, his […]

Goodbye, Mistress Bracket

Goodbye, Mistress Bracket

I want CHAOS. ANARCHY. Give me the first #16 seed victory. Double digit seeds scattered everywhere into the later rounds. Brackets CRUSHED INSTANTANEOUSLY. That’s what I’m rooting for in this year’s NCAA Tournament. In fact, it’s been that way for six years now. Ever since my mistress and I parted ways… Originally published on this […]

DeSean Jackson Would Look Great in Jets Green

DeSean Jackson Would Look Great in Jets Green

Come fly the friendly skies. News is out today that the Philadelphia Eagles are listening to offers for receiver DeSean Jackson. We know D-Jax already looks good in green, so why not the Jets? Like a lot of other Gang Green faithful, I’ve been waffling during this free agent binge period. I want to believe […]
