Jillert Anema coached the Netherlands to 21 Speedskating medals during the Sochi Olympic Games, a remarkable display of dominance. Much had been made domestically about the struggles of the United States in those events, results magnified by the arrival of a new “Super Suit.” Anema quickly dismissed excuse-making, and instead took aim at American football [...]

“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is white-hot out of the gate. The latest viral sensation to come out of Fallon’s production team features NBC News anchors Brian Williams and Lester Holt. The editing effort is positively brilliant.

My musical preferences have been well established here inside the Swollen Dome. Well, The Afghan Whigs have announced a tour for 2014 in support of their first album in 16 years – “Do To The Beast.” The tour includes a visit to Coachella in Indio, but you’ll have to wait for that live experience and [...]

Last month, radio stations descended on the Sheraton Times Square for the annual congregation that accompanies the Super Bowl. During the week leading up to the game, current and former players, Hollywood stars and media personalities do interviews with these stations, often to promote a product or charitable cause. They generally roll through their careers, [...]

One of the stories we followed into the 2014 Olympics in Sochi was that of the Jamaican Bobsled Team. Sure, there have been more than a few references to “Cool Runnings” and we’ve all wondered aloud about equipment availability and performance. There was a crowdsourcing effort to raise funds to get the team to Sochi. [...]

Greetings, Everyone – It’s been a wild and hectic week here in New York City as we prepare for the power and glory of Super Bowl XLVIII. I’ve been caught up in the spectacle, the pageantry, the mania of Super Bowl week in New York City (I know New Jersey’s the site for the game, [...]

Romanowski

NFL history is filled with big plays, heroes, villains and unforgettable figures. Bill Romanowski was one of the most outspoken and dominant defensive forces in the game during his career. Romanowski played 16 years in the NFL, spending time with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. He appeared in four [...]

We’re rapidly approaching the deadline for highly-coveted Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

Before he departed for Sundance, Rainn Wilson stopped by “The Jason Smith Show” on FOX Sports Radio to talk about his lifelong love of the Seahawks, the role of Fantasy Football on “The Office” (and Harmon’s sit-start advice failings) as well as his new television and film projects. Come on. Tell me you don’t want [...]

It’s time to rack it up again with another Fair Market Fantasy contest. I had great success in the Wild Card round and won my 10-team contest, getting tremendous value from T.Y. Hilton and Donald Brown in the Colts’ ridiculous comeback victory over the Chiefs. Ladarius Green makes a repeat appearance in my TE slot. [...]

GriffinBeard

Longtime listeners to my ranting know of my obsession with Peter Griffin and the one-liners put forth by Seth MacFarlane and his team on “Family Guy.” One episode and its dialogue routinely makes it way into conversations and diatribes and, given the obsession with the Neckbeard of one Andrew Luck, the timing of this article [...]

The 256-game marathon to the NFL Playoffs finally concluded last weekend with a wild, though familiar, ending in Dallas.

The 2013 season has been the year of the passing game and ridiculous point totals. There will be as many as 13 quarterbacks (with a couple of massive games for the back-end options, of course) to finish the season with 4,000 passing yards. With a couple big games by those on the fringe, perhaps 14 [...]
