How would Jim Healy address this Dodger Bankruptcy

June 28, 2011

With the Dodgers filling for bankruptcy today, I began to wonder how the late Jim Healy would have done his show on a day like this. Well, here’s my opinion of what it would have sounded like… Dateline Los Angeles Today in Federal Bankruptcy court, Dodger owner Frank McCourt and the dodgers officially filed for […]

A Non-Sports Post For Once…

June 22, 2011

I don’t blog very often and when I do, its sports related. I get all excited about blogging, then I’m over it after a few days, but I digress. I’ve been having some thoughts recently after 3 co-workers/friends have left their posts to explore other options in their life. These folks are all in their […]

The Hypocrites in Indianapolis

March 10, 2011

The NCAA is at it again.  These guys must use a magic-8 ball when deciding who to punish and for how long. Ohio State Football coach & sweater vest aficionado, Jim Tressel, recently admitted that he knew about his  players committing violations long before reporting it to the NCAA because, he was worried that his players might have […]

“Little Giants” highlight the football weekend

September 21, 2010

So this weekend produced some of the most exciting football games in a while. Granted, it was only week 2 in the NFL & week 3 in college football, but there were about 7 or 8 games this weekend that were not decided until the closing minutes of the game or in overtime.  While the Clemson-Auburn may […]

USC’s fight song should now be “Move On” instead of “Fight On!”, thanks to Reggie’s recent act.

September 16, 2010

Well Reggie Bush, for the 1st time in years, has done the smart thing. He has given back his Heisman Trophy and the trust has accepted. Now, once the NCAA rejects USC’s appeal for a reduction, all parties can focus on other things. USC now must “Move On” from instead of “Fight On” the NCAA, […]

Uh Playoffs!?, PLayoffs!! Are you kidding me?, Playoffs!?

January 7, 2008

Wildcard weekend in the NFL is over and while all 4 games were not decided until the 4th quarter, the game of the weekend was Jacksonville/Pittsburgh. The jags stormed out to 28-7 lead, only to watch the Steelers come back & take a 1 point lead late in the 4th quarter. The problem was Steelers […]

FSU-From Free Shoes U. to Fake Scores U.

December 19, 2007

Word has come down that up to 25 Florida State Seminoles will be suspended for the “who gives a crap bowl game” in Nashville. These kids apparently cheated during an online exam. If this is true, then they deserve to be suspended. As a former Division I athlete , I feel it’s only fair to […]

Ravens lay an egg!

December 18, 2007

In the modern era, only 1 NFL team has managed to go win-less (unless you count the 1982 Colts which went 0-8-1 in the strike year) & that was the 1976 expansion Tampa BayBucs. As a matter of fact, they nearly went win-less in their 1st 2 seasons, losing all 14 in 1976 & thier […]

Pettitte Admits Using HGH

December 16, 2007

Yankees Pitcher, Andy Pettitte, today admitted taking HGH for 2 days to help recover from a 2002 elbow injury. While I don’t condone his use of the product, he was able to at least save some face by coming clean. However, I am a bit skeptical over the fact that he says he only used […]
