It was only a matter of time. Trey Parker and Matt Stone get after the latest NFL debacle, Deflategate, in this week’s “South Park” episode. Cartman’s seething and stalking the hallway, likening himself as Tom Brady in his fight against school administration.


This past weekend, the nation’s long national nightmare ended. The glory of football season began on Thursday night with a huge slate of college games. And Friday, towns across this country shut down early to celebrate the return of “Friday Night Lights.” For all the good vibes, tailgates and celebrations, there are always negative stories that […]

On Thursday, we celebrated the beginning of a glorious new season of football. In the NFL, we witnessed the final performances of the preseason slate. Most stars stood around in ball caps while waving to the crowd. Collegiate players took to the gridiron for games that counted, and none was more celebrated that Jim Harbaugh’s […]

The first trailer for the forthcoming Will Smith vehicle “Concussion” landed on Monday. Peter King included it in his MMQB piece. I’ve watched it several times and have seen the attention-grabbing headlines that have taken over social media and entertainment/sports websites. Many of these headlines include some variation of the “Movie that the NFL doesn’t […]


“Blue – You’re My Boy!”  You all have heard the movie line and probably shouted it from the top of your lungs on multiple occasions. Well, “blue” has a whole other meaning and is blowing up social media and news sites mid-week. “Deep Blue” is now the lead in the summer of the shark, and video […]


On Thursday night, the NBA welcomed its latest draft class. After months of speculation, the top pick went down without incident. The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Karl-Anthony Towns from Kentucky, the first of a long parade of John Calipari disciples. Calipari had six players selected overall, including four in the lottery. I digress. Calipari was one […]


Earlier this week, the Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals (4-2). I’ve heard the arguments all week about how the health of Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving flipped this from a Cleveland sweep to a Warriors victory. That’s some specious thinking, to my mind, to say that […]


The Rolling Stones hit the stage on May 24th to open their 15-city “ZIP Code” tour. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards led the band through a 20-song set, including many of the classics. The band re-released the classic “Sticky Fingers” album this week, thereby opening up the legendary album for consumption by a new generation. […]

I first saw this teaser trailer over the weekend and winced. My South Side Chicago roots are no secret, and my affinity for the Bears comes through in my radio/video work with some regularity. So, when the cracks show from the legends, the heroes of your youth, you sit up and pay attention. Tuesday’s edition […]


On Thursday night, the Lakers welcomed LeBron James to Staples Center for their annual visit. Kobe Bryant, who has been sitting out with increased regularity in recent weeks, established a new career mark with 17 assists. Unfortunately, Bryant and the Lakers were outdone by James and the Cavaliers by a score of 109-102. During the […]


On Monday night, the “battle of the bands” in late-night talk was to begin. Metallica was scheduled to begin its run on “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.” Bono and U2 were locked in to do a week on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” Unfortunately, a Central Park biking incident put the U2 frontman […]


“Age Of Ultron,” the second installment of the ridiculously profitable Marvel series, is on the way in May of 2015. On Wednesday, the first trailer appeared for the movie and took the internet by storm. I appreciate the inclusion of the classic “Pinocchio” reference in the trailer. But, as you know from my entries herein, […]


Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer took to the podium after Friday’s loss to Louisville and left us scratching our heads. You’d expect some anger or disappointment following a crushing home loss. Instead, Shafer couched his opinions on the team’s shortcomings or coaching decisions and started talking about the world’s problems. We recognize the greatness of […]


Derek Jeter is certainly enjoying the early days of his retirement. He launched a new website, as I’ve chronicled here on, and has taken to the streets of New York. On Thursday, Jeter visited Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.” He signed a few autographs (the “I need to retire” jokes are getting old) […]

We know of Snoop Dogg’s affinity for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as evidenced by the vitriolic rants posted against offensive coordinator Todd Haley. He’s been a leader of youth football in the greater Los Angeles area, and several players have elevated their games to the NFL level. We’ll, he’s also the proud father of a player […]


Everyone in the sporting world rushed to take their shot at former NFL MVP Brett Favre once the first of his MicroTouch ads hit the airwaves this week. I’ve called Favre the “Yoked-Up Santa Claus” on the radio for quite some time now, so I was sad to see the beard go. Some derisively mocked […]


Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs, currently on tour in support of “Do To The Beast,” visited Steve Gorman Sports! on FOX Sports Radio. The frontman discusses Pete Rose and the Hall of Fame, his beginnings as an artist, top concerts and dream band mates. You even get some reading tips with a Civil War […]


This showed up in my timeline earlier today, a random, juvenile joke from the “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” show. Given the gravity of many of the sports stories we’ve been tracking over the past several weeks, this random bit of a chuckling Strahan opposite a straight-faced Ripa was a nice diversion. <iframe width=”574″ height=”350″ […]


Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared on CP24 News in Canada to promote the arrival of his one-man show “Undisputed Truth” to Ontario. Host Nathan Downer asked Tyson about his relationship with Rob Ford and referenced the former pugilist’s rape conviction. Tyson then unloaded on the host with a string of profanities. <iframe width=”668″ height=”400″ […]

Mike Harmon of rolls up a quick preview of the Thursday opener. All the yapping is over.


Tony Stewart gave an emotional statement regarding his return to racing this weekend in Atlanta. You can watch the video and read the full text of Stewart’s comments below. “This has been one of the toughest tragedies I’ve ever had to deal with both professionally and personally. This is something that will definitely affect my […]


As we know, the fantasy football world is stacked with pundit and scribes looking for clever phrasing to complete their analysis. I would raise my hand and proudly declare myself to be one of those analysts seeking to make a point with a (sometimes) witty analogy or turn of phrase. Well, that point has not […]

On Friday night, the sporting world was overrun with thoughts about Week 1 of the NFL preseason and the ceremony welcoming LeBron James back to Ohio. However, there was one baseball highlight that captivated the imagination of fans and the viewing public from a baseball game in Milwaukee. The Brewers hosted the Dodgers and second-year […]


There isn’t much to add. I was on-air at FOX Sports Radio on Wednesday night as the annual ESPY Awards telecast occurred. The social media response to Stuart Scott’s speech when receiving the Jimmy V Award left me anxiously awaiting my arrival home to hear it. It’s a mighty powerful eight minutes and three seconds […]
