What A LeJoke

Monday, October 5th, 2009

When running back LeGarrette Blount was suspended for the season by Oregon's Chip Kelly, the first-year head coach was lauded with praise for sticking to his guns and setting an example for his players.

Talk About Kicking ‘Em When They’re Down

Monday, September 21st, 2009

The Detroit Lions blow. I know, shocking. On Sunday, the Lions lost for the 19th consecutive time. The streak is the second-longest in NFL history behind only the Buccaneers' historic futility in the late 1970s.  ESPN's "NFL Live," put up the above nifty little graphic illustrating the Lions' continued failures. Chopin's "Funeral ...

Chris Fowler Is Mistaken

While flipping between channels last night I came upon the Georgia Tech - Clemson game on ESPN. Chris Fowler, Craig James and Jesse Palmer were in the booth bestowing their infinite wisdom on the viewing audience.

The Sports Dude Goes To Mexico City and Lives To Write About It

Monday, August 17th, 2009

A few months ago, Bill Simmons had ESPN soccer announcer Rob Stone as a guest on his radio show to talk soccer - a rarity on the Sports Guy's show. Listening to Simmons trip over soccer concepts and names made ardent soccer supporters cringe. But he admitted during the segment, ...

Link Dump! Brought To You By Eli Manning’s Money

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Well, not FUNDED by it, but definitely inspired by it. I realize he won a Super Bowl for them, but really? And I also have to admit that it's not like the highest paid player in the various sports leagues is always the most deserving. Eli's about to get paid. But ...
