Hey crazed sports fan-if you must kill someone over a game, can it please be yourself?

San Francisco 49ers’ Wide Receiver Kyle Williams has not had the best few days. During the 49ers’ 20-17 loss in the NFC Championship on Sunday, Williams had two costly turnovers, including a fumble in overtime which allowed the Giants to kick a field goal and ultimately punch their ticket to the Super Bowl.

Memo: God doesn't care about the NFL (or sports), stop acting like he does

On Sunday, Tim Tebow threw for a “divine” 316 yards-(3:16!) and moreover threw a “miraculous”, game winning 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas in OT , as the Broncos upset the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-23. In other news on Sunday, Shantel McCoy, a 32-year-old Chicago woman, was killed when she unknowingly rode an elevator into a... Read more »

Raping kids in showers at PSU is one thing, but hiring an "outsider" as Head Football Coach? Appalling

So, rumor is New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien will be named Penn State’s new head football coach. An outsider, with no ties to the University, with no ties to 46 year Head Coach Joe Paterno.

6-for-22 for 60 yards, 1 INT and a passer rating of 20.6. No, that’s not the stat line of a perennial third string/practice squad quarterback, getting his chance in the first preseason game of the year. No, it’s not the season stat line for a 3rd grade quarterback (who plays on both sides of the ball! ) in... Read more »

Joe Cowley has become the new Jay Mariotti

Joe Cowley has become the new Jay Mariotti
When Jay Mariotti abruptly left the Chicago Sun-Times in 2008, it left readers who enjoy sensationalistic, pointlessly provocative commentary, with a painful void; sure these people probably had friends who were pot stirrers, who immaturely sought attention through being mindlessly contrarian, but it just wouldn’t be the same. Who in Chicago would call us stupid?... Read more »

Joe Frazier was better than Muhammad Ali, in and out of the ring

Joe Frazier was better than Muhammad Ali, in and out of the ring
 ”My name is Smokin’ Joe Frazier, sharp as a razor. Yeah, floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. I’m the man who done the job. Yeah, he know. Look and see….” This was the late Joe Frazier’s voicemail message. While the reference to Muhammad Ali is unmistakable, the dark, sadistic meaning behind the... Read more »

The New Miami Marlins Logo is Awful

The New Miami Marlins Logo is Awful
In an over the top ceremony which would make LeBron, Dwyane and that third guy proud, the “Miami Marlins” unveiled their new logo and uniforms on Friday, and well…much like their fan support, it is nothing short of awful. It looks as though a 7 year old named Mark was given some Crayola Paints/Markers and simply... Read more »
