If you blink, you miss that patch of time between weeks of the NFL season. We’re at it again with a battle between the Cardinals and Seahawks. Both teams are chasing the high-flying Rams in the NFC West. That’s right. I type that as frequently as I can to remind myself of its truth. We’ll […]

The trade deadline came during the week and brought us many goodies in the fantasy world. Jay Ajayi, Duane Brown and Kelvin Benjamin find new homes for Week 9 and beyond, and fantasy owners are wondering about the domino effects. Do you like Kenyan Drake? How much more do you like Russell Wilson now? Well, […]

Sometimes we get a little wild in the FOX Sports Radio studios. This week, Jason Smith and I produced our first QB Monopoly feature for social media. Our social media director, Mike Fowler, watched us play with the names of NFL quarterbacks on a comically oversized Monopoly board. Smith put the names into groups for […]

OK. So I took a hit on Thursday night with the Patriots – as many prognosticators did. So, let’s rally. Here’s my Week 1 Picks Against The Spread.

It’s that time. We have one game in the books, the surprise 42-27 win by New England over Kansas City. And yes, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski owners are still smarting. Now we push forward to a full slate of action, including a highly anticipated matchup between the Cowboys and Giants. Will Odell Beckham, Jr. […]

I’m going to start up a new project for NFL 2017. Following each game of the NFL season, I will summarize things in one PowerPoint slide. So, I’m dialing up the “One-Board Recap.” It’d be easy to fire up the stats recorded from Alex Smith, Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt. Hell, this game featured 11 […]

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in a sweet Fantasy Football event put together by our team at 1360 KLSD-AM San Diego. In my long ride down the highway, signal strength came and went. But, I was gifted the audio gold of a repeat of an April episode of Freakonomics. If you […]

As I traversed my social media timelines on Monday, I found a gem between accounts of the eclipse. Yes, there were some solid, professional takes in the mix to offset the crazy “built my own viewer” crowd. I was most taken back by the photos showing large gatherings of people in city centers and campuses. […]

DartThrow

I haven’t done 17 versions of Mock Drafts ahead of tonight’s festivities. But, I felt compelled to at least toss a couple darts in the direction of this spectacle. Because we offered up some bold predictions in my shows on FOX Sports Radio, I included trades affecting the top 6 (had to include the Jets […]

Pancakes

Here’s your headline of the day. I saw this story first thing on Friday morning. Naturally, it started to appear everywhere given its comical nature. We joke about the Kevin Costner “Pancake-Eating (Expletive)” rant from the movie Draft Day during out shows on FOX Sports Radio and even celebrate a segment called Hot Takes & […]

It’s time to put the ball back up. Tipoff for Sunday’s games is just moments away when Michigan and Louisville get after it. We’re ready.

Participating in the world of sports talk radio (weeknights 8-11p PT on FOX Sports Radio) requires analysis, bold predictions and more than a few instances of hot take nonsense. In that vein, I present my picks ATS for Thursday’s NCAA Men’s Tournament action. * Picks are for entertainment purposes only. The numbers were taken off […]

Lock and load. The countdown clock is quickly ticking toward zero. And I’m in from the opening tip through the championship game. Sure, my attention will turn to Salt Lake City and the first-round matchup between my beloved Northwestern Wildcats and the Vanderbilt Commodores. Now I want to start singing “Easy” or one of the […]

I still want to know what happened to the wigs that were left over when Manny Ramirez left Los Angeles during the 2010 season (he was waived and joined the White Sox). They were hot sellers for a while in Dodger Stadium gift shops at a cool $25 each. Perhaps they can be repurposed with […]
