The best thing about hot and swampy mid-August as far as my brain box is concerned? We're that much closer to the most wonderful month of the year-the one that comes afterward. Can't recall its name but I do know the weather cools down a bit, (suck it, warm Earthers!)
It's shitty preseason ball and a couple of shitty teams are involved in this double-header. Call it "un-beautiful symmetry", maybe? Whatever, my eyebulbs are gonna catch some action. One thing I've got an issue with is the fact that this is the first weekend that all teams are playing and
Are you footballed out yet? If you are this site is no place for you. Gird your pyjama bottoms, eat some processed sugar product, find some caffeine, (have you tried that coffee enema yet? Maybe now's the time) get rid of the family and lock the doors. You've got some
It's the day before Christmas and lives hang in the balance-well, fantasy lives anyway. Best of luck to all you bastages that made it this far and will win some sweet, sweet moolah. The rest of us will hustle and bustle about, searching desperately for some place, any place that sells
I'll acknowledge you west-coasters in the lede just this one time and then never again. There's so much football, basketball and hockey coming out the ying yang, it's an embarrassment of riches. And I must say that all commenters acquitted themselves quite well all day/night long yesterday. Now it's time
There's a couple of beaut's featured at this spot. Let's quit jabbering and dive right in, shall we?
NYJ/Den: No this ain't one of them. Well, unless you like misery in handy, dandy football form. Denver hadn't lost eight in a row going all the way back to the Summer of
Some of our brethren are enjoying the sweaty, seedy favours of the fine town of Las Vegas this weekend. Say a prayer for them, will you? Here's hoping none of them are flying back home wearing nothing but a barrel held up by suspenders. I wonder what they'll be doing
Where did the time go? [looks inside the folds of the sofa] Nope, it's not there. [eats week-old Cheeto] The Wild Card spots are sorta, kinda, maybe taking a bit of shape. But maybe that dead-in-the-water 4-6 team will win out and sneak in with the help of three different
Well, here she is-the meat of the week 10 sked. Will it be an overcooked skirt steak cut along the grain ("for extra chewiness!") served with a side of store-brand ketchup or will it be a slow-roasted bone-in prime rib seasoned (the previous evening, of course) with sea salt, cracked
The Astronauts did a thingy last night according to spurts pages everywhere. When do you think they'll come back down to earth? Will Buzz Aldrin officiate at the wedding between that guy and his girliecake? How much motorboating will Verlander do this off-season? More than the usual amount? The questions
We're nearing the half-way mark of the regular season. Let that sink in for a moment. Are you done? Good. I feel like time is speeding by myself. I book-learned somewhere that as one ages this feeling occurs because there are no longer any 'firsts' to mark the passage of
Hopefully that Londonderry game was entertaining. There be eight features on tap now and more than a couple seem to have some potential. Let's have a look. TO THE GAMES!
Cin/Cle: Two O-and-3's have at it. All the Bengals need to do to put this one away is to get inside
