Yinzburgh Stillers 2018 Preview

Well, holy hell. Wasn't that AFC Championship Game the throwdown everyone, expected, and deserved? Two titans of the AFC having yet another remtatch to see who is who? Two greats, with history, both recent, and historically, to add to their legacy? Steelers and Patriots, two rivals vying for for supremacy

HAWT PRESEASON AXXSHUN! Thursday Night

WEEK ONE OF THE PRESEASON WOOOOOOOOOO.... Who's ready to watch sixth-round draft picks from Middle Tennessee State run into undrafted guys from Cal-Poly and Mount Union?! This is our methadone for the four weeks, before our six month heroin bender begins. 24 teams (that's 75% of the league; MATH!) play tonight. Here's

Your 2018 US Open Day 1 Preview and All-Day Thread to Waste Time at Work and Avoid Your Family!

This United States Open. Golf's greatest test; it is my favorite tournament in golf, which makes it one of my top-three and a half sporting events of the year (NCAA Basketball Tournament, NHL Playoffs, and/or NFL Playoffs/WVU made a major bowl game). What makes the US Open truly "Open" is that

2018 Tradition Like Any Other Preview and Afternoon Livethread

We just finished the NCAA Tournament. I bet you're asking yourself, "Where can I get more Jim Nantz? I can't wait all the way to the start of the NFL season to hear his velvety voice!" This is you, right? No? Yes, it's The Masters. Golf's biggest event, and it's most self-serving.

Pens-Jacks Quasi-Preview Or Some Such (mostly Ice Stillers)

The Pittsburgh Ice Stillers commence their Stanley Cup title defense against the "third best" team in the Metro Division, Columbus. The Pens recorded their third-best record in franchise history with 111 points, which not only wasn't enough to win the division (piss off, Crapitals), but, has them playing the equally

A Completely Neutral, Thorough Preview of the AFC Championship Game

WCS: Well, strangely enough, the Steelers are in the AFC Championship Game. Again. Oh, and it's against the Patriots. Again. This after being 4-5 at one point in November. They've since run off nine-straight wins, won the AFC North, and got through their first two playoff games. Mike Tomlin and

2016 U.S. Open Primer

STANLEY CUP WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Enjoy the golf.   No, just kidding. Today marks the start of the year's second golf major, our national championship, the US Open.

Your Thursday Night Looks-Like-We-Take-Beerguy-Rob-For-Granted Live Thread

Whoopsie-doodle. Looks like no one volunteered for tonight, so here's a quarter-assed fill-in right quick. I spent today driving wifey to work, various doctor's appointments, picking the wifey back up, filling new prescriptions, getting a much needed haircut, installing my parents' third printer since September (seriously, guys?!), picking up said scripts, and

Wednesday Night Game 7s Are a Blast if It Doesn’t Involve Your Team Thread

In the world of sports, there are very few things better than a Game 7. By that point, the series has been balanced, both teams are clearly evenly-matched, and it's come down to whomever makes the fewest mistakes, who sticks to the fundamentals a little bit better, and sometimes, who

Diary of a Panic Attack Pt. 1

Sup, kiddos. I used to suffer from the occasional panic attack episodes (meaning 1-4 over the span of 2-3 days) every year, year and half growing up. I didn't know what they were, nor did my parents ever really see fit to have it looked into. It's not their fault; I

A Tradition Unlike Any Other (Barf)

Hello, friends. It's a tradition unlike any other. It's The Masters. I'm Jim Nantz, and it's my distinct pleasure to bring you one of the great events in all of sports. It's Augusta National Golf Club, the Mecca of professional golf. The pride, the heritage, the racial purity. Yes, The Masters embodies
