Saints' Tight End Benjamin Watson's Post on Ferguson Unrest Worth Reading

Saints’ Tight End Benjamin Watson’s Post on Ferguson Unrest Worth Reading

I’ve admittedly read little of the post-non-indictment Ferguson commentary. This is purposeful. I’ve found so much of what I’ve read or heard — including media, friends on various social platforms and everday conversation — to be stupid, ignorant, misinformed, uninformed or, not atypically, some unique amalgamation of all of those things. So, I choose to maintain my […]

Richard Sherman Destroys NFL with Help of Doug Baldwin Cardboard Cut Out

Richard Sherman Destroys NFL with Help of Doug Baldwin Cardboard Cut Out

Richard Sherman is a very talented football player. He is also quite an intelligent individual. Did we mention he’s outspoken too? Sometimes these dynamic forces come together in very compelling ways. Today’s “press conference” was another sterling example. Sherman shines as he and a cardboard cut out of Seahawks teammate Doug Baldwin take the stage […]

Patrick Peterson Says DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace Have “Crackhead Speed”

Sometimes you miss great things, if you’re not looking. Like new terms. Phrases you’ve never heard. You know, like “crackhead speed.” Not following?

The […]

Luckily, that means the “week of greatness” is back from Foot Locker. The weeklong pre-Turkey Day blitz from the footwear retailer traditionally integrates athletes and does so in a […]

 Winnipeg Fans Carry "Oh, Canada" in Tribute to the Fallen

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

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 […]

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 […]
