Following the Eagles utter domination of the Vikings in the NFC Championship, my first thought was “How in the world did the EAGLES make the Super Bowl?” And once I really thought it through, there was one simple answer: Philly IS the best team in the NFC! No statistics, no advanced analytics are needed folks, it’s clear. There’s a reason why this team was a 1-seed, why they went 13-3… They outplayed their opponents and grinded out wins ALL SEASON LONG and proved that they are capable of winning under any circumstances. And we still doubted them in the playoffs (this “we” strongly includes myself). We...Read More

Being a Mets fan ain’t fun. From constant heartbreaks to horrible stretches of injuries, and of course, their trademark horrendous luck when it comes to pretty much anything – we can’t catch a break. And to make manners much worse, the franchise is run more poorly than maybe any other professional sports franchise around. For a quick background, following the infamous Bernie Madoff scandal (which the Mets owners, of course had to invest into) the Amazins’ lost an extremely large chunk of their salary, which now decades after, still leaves us with a very cheap approach to almost everything. Under the helm of the...Read More
It’s official. Big Baller Brand has landed in Lithuania, as former UCLA freshman Liangelo Ball, and Chino Hills HS dropout Lamelo Ball, will debut for the Lithuanian squad Vytautas as early as January 13th. The news broke out nearly a month ago that both would head to Europe to play professionally for the same team. This came as a shocker for fans everywhere, as the move to Lithuania was completely out of nowhere. But father LaVar Ball put his foot down and made the bold decision. It’s expected that both will ease into larger minutes with the team over time. According to many, this is nothing near a popularity stunt, but a legitimate decision for their basketball futures....Read More
To many sports fans, there’s nothing better than a good, old-fashioned, gritty rivalry between two teams. It makes the game much more entertaining and of course, worth so much more to the players. Although, amongst all of this there is a fine-line between a tough rivalry – and a dirty, unacceptable one… Before their Monday Night Football clash, the Steelers and Bengals have had a long history of dirty hits, trash-talk and of course – great games. MNF, however saw two players receive one game bans, as well as two leaving on a backboard because of injury. Pittsburgh stud LB, Ryan Shazier was rushed to the hospital...Read More
We all may love the awesome Color Rush jerseys, and seeing our fantasy football players face off under the bright lights of Thursday Night Football; but we’ve officially hit the realization that TNF is DANGEROUS, and is not worth all the hype. Last night in the NFC West showdown between Seattle and Arizona, we saw Cardinals DB Tyvon Branch tore his ACL, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was nearing the concussion protocol, and to top it off, big-name CB, Richard Sherman tear his Achilles’ tendon – ending his season immediately. We have enough evidence to prove that playing on a...Read More
