So, What Went Wrong?

Monday, January 5th, 2009

After what was arguably the most interesting final Sunday in NFL history -- The Big Lead at least had a premonition of this awesomeness, but it played out far wackier than any of us could have anticipated -- and a fairly decent Wild Card weekend, we're down the final eight playoff contestants. ...

As poor Wendi Nix (seriously, does she not have anything ...

Ari Fleishcer to the Rescue!

Monday, August 4th, 2008

As has been extolled in the blogosphere, on ESPN and pretty much everywhere, the Brett Favre saga is dragging on endlessly. I'm not even going to bother linking to any old posts. You know the damn story. We found out Sunday that NFL commish Roger Goodell officially reinstated Mr. Wisconsin and ...

The National Drama Continues: Brett Speaks
