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″ […]

For months, the domestic violence incident involving Ray Rice and his then-fiancee dominated the headlines. The incendiary nature of the case crossed beyond normal sports reporting and became a huge national story. Monday’s release of the graphic in-elevator video renewed debate over Rice’s two-game suspension and the NFL’s treatment of this investigation. Now, commissioner Roger […]

I saw this story referenced as I traversed the Internet this evening during my post-show wind-down. Roy Hibbert captured a great moment during which an Indianapolis police officer produced an extra pair of boots from the trunk of his vehicle and presented them to a homeless gentlemen on the side of the road. Hibbert shared […]

I always look forward to these reports. Every year, the firm of Challenger, Gray and Christmas puts out reports about the impact of hobbies and sporting events on the economy. We see it for the NCAA Tournament run each and every March. Well, the fantasy football report is in. The firm estimates a robust total […]

I participated in an “Expert” league at the start of the summer hosted on MyFantasyLeague.com. It’s a 20-slot, 12-owner, “Best Ball” type of league. That is to say, we draft the league and watch things unfold without an ability to shift, substitute or replaced injured (or dare I say, suspended) players. So, here’s a snapshot […]

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 […]

Enjoy the next round of World Cup competition. Save the endless spinning of the NBA Free Agency wheel. And hope that the offseason (pre-training camp) NFL chatter circles back to talk of camp battles instead of bathroom photos (Johnny Manziel) and legal woes (Cleveland receiver Josh Gordon). I’m going to slide off the grid momentarily […]

I saw this news item earlier today and smiled. Carmelo Anthony is one of the top prizes in this year’s NBA free agent class, producing nearly as many rumors and headlines as Olympics teammate and 2003-04 Draft classmate LeBron James. The NBA offseason has been more animated and energized than the 2013-14 regular season and, […]

Following the death of Ralph Wilson, a number of rumors surfaced regarding the future of the Buffalo Bills franchise. A number of home games in recent years were played in Toronto, thereby opening the door to myriad relocation options (it fills a lot of column inches here in Los Angeles whenever such issues occur). The […]

What can I say? There are some movies that just hit you the right way. You have the phenomenon known as “being Shawshanked.” That is to say, “Shawshank Redemption” has become one of those movies that forces you to put an end to the channel-surfing and sit on the remote control. Over time, “Napoleon Dynamite” […]

jeterwatch

The Derek Jeter farewell tour continued this week in Seattle, and naturally there had to be a gift bestowed upon the future Hall of Famer. Jeter received a gift from his former double play partner Robinson Cano, who presented him with a $34,000 watch. The watch was of the Jay-Z Hublot line.

As we prepare for each edition of “The Jason Smith Show” on FOX Sports Radio, we leave no stone in the sports and pop culture worlds unturned. I saw a notice about an upcoming auction from Grey Flannel that includes one of the finest movie wardrobe entries that I’ve even seen. The robe and trunks […]

spellingbee

The annual Scripps National Spelling Bee concluded on Thursday night with a tie after they ran out of words. I’m not sure how that happened, but it did. It was the first tie in the past 52 years of competition. But that wasn’t the story of the night. A young speller named Jacob Williamson earned […]

I caught this on “The Big Lead” the other day and chuckled quite a bit. Listeners of “The Jason Smith Show” on FOX Sports Radio know of my affinity for commemorative jerseys, theme nights at Minor League Baseball stadiums and the fun side of sports. Every time I see something about “Star Wars” night, “Bacon” […]

When you need to go suit-shopping for a wedding, business conference or big event, you’re ready (psychologically) to commit a decent-sized expenditure. You get past the “I’ll wear it once” mentality and plunk down a stack of cash or your plastic. Whether you just surrender to your surroundings or embrace the event, you suit up. […]

Sanchez

How Did I Miss This? Sanchez Butt-Fumble Jersey Sold ———— I saw the headline of this story from the Shutdown Corner blog at Yahoo! Sports. One Jets fan pays big bucks for Mark Sanchez’s ‘Butt Fumble’ jersey I immediately started scrolling through the article to see what price was paid for this significant piece of […]

Joey Chestnut retains the belt in the hot dog-eating challenge that occurs annually on July 4. This weekend, Chestnut saw another of his marks fall to the wayside, as Molly Schuyler of Nebraska wolfed down two 72-ounce steaks in under 10 minutes. That’s 144 OUNCES OF MEAT … plus the sides. I’m just awestruck by […]

dufner

This weekend, Adam Scott defeated Jason Dufner in the Crowne Plaza Invitational on the third playoff hole at Colonial. Dufner joked about falling short in the playoff against the game’s No. 1 player. He cites Scott’s ability, of course, but suggests that a secret weapon ultimately felled him. “It’s tough to beat him,” Dufner said. […]

wrigleymural

This story got some legs in the blogosphere from a number of sources around my hometown of Chicago. The Cubs put forth a series of murals to commemorate the history of Wrigley Field, as the ballpark celebrated its 100th birthday earlier this season. Paul Sullivan of ChicagoNow issued a blog post earlier this week about […]
