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 & […]

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 […]

The cycle churns quickly. We’re already counting down the minutes until the start of Week 6. Trevor Siemian returns to the fray for Denver as they battle the 1-4, snake-bitten Chargers. Can Philip Rivers solve the Denver defense? We also see Colin Kaepernick back on the field for the 49ers in Buffalo. Is the Rex […]

It’s time for another big run in fantasyland. LeGarrette Blount got things started with a huge night against the Texans behind Jacoby Brissett. Today’s action features a host of intriguing matchups, including the Battle for Pennsylvania (Read: Wentz vs. the Steelers) and another helping of the Bears in primetime against Dak Prescott and the Dallas […]

The games of Week 2 began with a thriller on Thursday night between the Bills and Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick shredded the Buffalo secondary, Eric Decker’s wife opened the door for one million nicknames … and Matt Forte crashed through a Dareus-less run defense for three touchdowns. With Gronkowski and Ertz out, the tight end position […]

It’s that time again. You exhale after a couple days of hotly-contested football action. You resume your normal work activities and before you know know it, you’re smack-dab in another fantasy football matchup. We can only hope that the beginning to Week 2 between the Jets and Bills trumps the misery of the Rams-49ers Monday […]

The glorious morning has finally arrived. In just five hours, the NFL season will kick off in full effect. Sure, we had a stuffed appetizer on Thursday night with the Broncos taking down the Panthers in a Super Bowl rematch. But, that was just the first of 256 battles to settle the NFL regular season. […]

On Thursday night, we got the new 2016 NFL season started with a big-hitting and dramatic affair. The Denver Broncos came from behind to beat Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers 21-20. Graham Gano missed a 50-yard field goal in the waning seconds of this game. But, the missed field goal is only a footnote. […]

Last call! Final fantasy football drafts for 2016 are being conducted ahead of Thursday’s Super Bowl rematch between the Broncos and Panthers. Naturally, my Northwestern-loving self can’t wait to see Trevor Siemian under center for Denver. But, it’s about the start of a 256-game journey to the postseason. Will Tom Brady return from suspension to […]

It’s the beautiful time of year. College football begins in earnest this weekend, and we’re just one week away from the first of 256 regular season NFL games. OK, you can lop off the final 16 games for fantasy purposes. When we are referencing Major League Baseball, we joke about the fact that “hope springs […]

The first weekend of the NFL preseason was greeted with great passion, energy and trepidation. It didn’t matter that the top stars would play a series or two before stepping to the sidelines for the night. No, fans lined up in droves to cheer the return of football and to evaluate young talent. Rookie quarterbacks […]

Prince

I pieced together a quick video (you can see the tired eyes) on the outpouring of emotion following the death of legendary musician Prince, the latest in a string of jarring losses in the entertainment world this year. Harmon examines the connection of pop culture, music and sports, the similarity of fan bases and the reverential […]

There are few days on the calendar that get me as fired up as Super Bowl Sunday. The six-month buildup, a period that encompasses innumerable radio hits, columns read, numbers crunched, fantasy musings delivered, game reviews and shows hosted, funnels directly into a frenetic final week. And this week leading up to Super Bowl 50 […]

I saw this story published earlier this week by our colleagues at FOX Soccer and it made me smile. It’s a different take on the annual rite of “weight loss” resolutions on New Year’s Day. Started by a man frustrated by his inability to find the motivation and support through traditional weight loss programs, “Man V […]

Locked and loaded for the regular season. In just a little more than 24 hours, the new NFL season will begin when the Patriots and Steelers get things started. And, as “Harmon’s Fantasy QB Rankings Final” note, Tom Brady is back and ready to roll (No. 3). I felt compelled to re-post the final draft […]

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 […]
