Your Week Nine College Football Picks

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Record after week eight: 91-48, 68-70-1 AS 12 pm ET Purdue (3-5) at Wisconsin (5-2) (-7) I would love it if Purdue would soften Wisconsin up for IU a little. Won't happen, of course, because Purdue sucks just as bad as Indiana these days, but it'd still be nice. Don't watch this game ...

Your Week Eight College Football Scores

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

10 am ET: We're coming to you LIVE from Ryan Field in whateverthehellsuburbNorthwesternisin, Illinois! Okay, not really.

Peavy To The Other Chicago Team?

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

The Chicago White Sox have thrown their hat into the Jake Peavy Sweepstakes. And I continue to use mixed metaphors. Tough day all around. Look, Phillips has said again and again and again and again that Peavy ain't going anywhere, but that's not really the point anymore. There are always going ...

Shut Up, Numpties

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Okay, maybe not everyone, but the title is still apropos (of doors) given the Blues' reaction to losing to Barcelona on a 93rd minute away goal. It's been two days since the match and Chelsea's players are still all in the press talking about how the official didn't give them enough decisions ...
