Montreal Canadiens Cross The Sacrebleu Line

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Randy Cunneyworth was named interim coach of the Montreal Canadiens this weekend when the team fired Jacques Martin. Cunneyworth is Canadian so one could assume that a Canadian coaching the Canadiens would be enough to placate the fan base. Ah, but you see these are Canadiens, not Canadians. And those French Canadians ...

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

While David West entertained a press conference with all of two media members regarding his free agent deal Tuesday, the real story coming out of Indianapolis is the Pacers apparent signing of five-month old Jarrid Famous.

See, I Told You I Didn’t Lose In Finland

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Last week, I touched on the Hellacious Helenius Helsinki Hustle (channeling my inner Don King) when Dereck Chisora was robbed of the vacant EBU heavyweight belt. The hometown judges awarded the title to Finn Robert Helenius in a match people are calling "one of the worst decisions I've seen in ...

Well-traveled English soccer player Michael Chopra claims $3 million in gambling debts. I know, peanuts. Charles Barkley lost $10 million gambling. But since you've never heard of Michael Chopra (that is unless you're a Newcastle fan), he can't afford that much red ink. Per BBC News: "Your first bet's your worst bet. As ...

Let’s Play Some Russian Roulette In A British Courtroom

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

It's been called the Lawsuit of the Year. A team owner in the midst of a high-profile breakup that could cost big bucks. No, I'm not talking about Frank and Jaime McCourt and the Los Angeles Dodgers. (Though who doesn't love limo driver-induced infidelity that brings one of MLB's banner franchises to ...

Who Knew Roger Clemens Was A Biggie Smalls Fan?

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

I'm sure Roger Clemens loves it when people call him Big Poppa, but I always figured The Rocket to be more of a Brooks & Dunn guy. However on Tuesday, Clemens evoked Biggie Smalls in federal court in an effort to save himself some chedda/scrilla/dough. The seven-time Cy Young winner asked ...
