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

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 […]

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

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 […]

Nats awesome Jayson Werth gnome playoff promo

The Washington Nationals begin their 2014 postseason journey in a few hours in D.C. as they get set to face the San Francisco Giants. The ‘Natitude around the capital city is strong to quite strong, so tickets are not easy to come by. However, the Nats are opening up a unique opportunity to a few […]

Manning rap video sequel falls short

Manning rap video sequel falls short

If something works, you should just do it again right? Uhhh, not always. See Blues Brother 2000 for reference. DirecTV should peep the history books and learn that sequels don’t always mean “better.” Although, I guess you could argue that since I’m penning a post on this second Manning brothers rap video commercial, the marketers […]

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Welcome to Strongville. In case there was any doubt, the Texas Longhorns are now coach Charlie Strong’s team. Even if he is removing those iconic ‘Horns from everywhere you can see them. I’ll be straight up. I’ve long been a Charlie Strong fan for a long, long time. I’ve also spent a decent amount of time […]

Richard Sherman's Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Richard Sherman’s Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Patrick Peterson is a tremendous athlete and football player. In recognition of his skills, the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday rewarded him with a five-year contract extension worth $70M. It makes him the highest-paid corner in the NFL. Such contracts get people talking about the best corners in the league…a conversation that begins to naturally include […]

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 […]
