Game 7: The worst/best experience in sports

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

From a fan's standpoint, I believe the key to successfully preparing for a Game 7 is to resign yourself to the fact it'll never happen in the first place. That's the beauty of falling behind 3-1 in a series -- simply extending the series to a winner-take-all game is a ...

Bowl Preview: Little Caesar’s Bowl

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Florida International (6-6) vs. Toledo (8-4) (-1.5) Games like this are what make bowl season so awesome. Toledo hasn't been to a bowl in five years, and this is the first bowl appearance EVER for Florida International...and they get to play in Detroit the day after Christmas. Their fans are showing ...

Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get Worse…

On The Prowl

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

From The Files of Police Squad

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Outside of sports, the thing I like reading about the most is anything that can be tagged "stupid criminals" or "news of the weird." Actually, to be honest, I like those stories even more than sports. There just isn't much of a market for beat writers in news of the ...
