So, Valentine’s Day came and went. Perhaps you failed to come up with the killer gift. Forget about the chocolate and/or flowers. You can go big by buying clothes. More specifically, you can go limited-edition and embrace some inner evil (… or good). Well, a quick run on the Disney website offers you up an [...]

It’s that time of year again. The dust has settled on Super Bowl XLVII, though the advent of this week’s NFL Combine puts the spotlight on the next class of would-be heroes. The NCAA Tournament is still one month from tipping off and the NBA and NHL Playoffs are still some two months away. I [...]

I came across this article in the wee hours of the morning as I traversed the Internet for topics to start the day while watching bad late-night television. As an unapologetic observer of the second golden age of wrestling, also known as the rise of the WWF, World Class Championship Wrestling, the AWA and through [...]

Am I the only one excited about the prospect of next year’s Super Bowl celebration in New York (New Jersey)? The dust has barely settled on the Ravens’ victory over the 49ers, but everyone’s already looking ahead. The NFL never sleeps. Joe Flacco’s Disney commercial hasn’t even completed its run. The investigation into how two [...]

The action is starting to heat up in “The Big Easy” as the countdown to kickoff grinds toward zeroes. Fans from Baltimore and San Francisco are making their presence known, and the party schedule has expanded immensely. Follow the Twitter-verse and you’ll see a ton of notes about celebrities being out and about at restaurants [...]

As we begin a new week of writing and ranting in the Dome, we have to stop an exhale. Following a terrible, miserable and, at times, unwatchable Wild Card round, fans, fantasy owners and football-watchers were treated to four fantastic games. A number of water cooler topics spawned out of the games. Here are some [...]

It’s the stretch run in fantasyland, and owners are rolling toward to Ronnie Hillman, RB, DEN: Willis McGahee is out indefinitely. Hillman logged 15 touches for 59 yards in a workload split with Lance Ball in McGahee’s absence. Bryce Brown, RB, PHI: Brown logged five carries for 35 yards in relief of LeSean McCoy late [...]

I made a couple quick tweaks to the rankings for this week because of the issues at wide receiver for the Chargers. With Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal ailing, Danario Alexander and Seyi Ajirotutu are back onto the long-range fantasy radar. Alexander sits in the No. 48 slot – Ajirotutu comes in at No. 60. [...]

Quarterbacks 1. Christian Ponder, MIN: Ponder dominated the 49ers in Sunday’s shocking win. Yes, I like the look of the Minnesota offense running forward. A healthy AP in the backfield opens up play-action, and defenses looking to stack the box get hit by Harvin, Rudolph and reinstated wideout Jerome Simpson. 2. Andy Dalton, CIN: Dalton [...]

You can pick your biggest failure from Week 3 of the NFL season. There are many, many candidates in what was one of the wildest Sundays in recent NFL memory. 1. We’ve already written extensively about Cam Newton’s struggles on Thursday night. 2. Jay Cutler, CHI vs. STL: The Bears handled the Rams. Cutler and [...]

1. Wes Welker, NE – played only 43 of the Patriots’ 67 offensive snaps against the Titans. He was limited to five targets, producing three receptions for 14 yards. 2. Chris Johnson, TEN – I thought we left the early-2011 version of Johnson in our rear view mirror? Johnson was limited to four rushing yards [...]

QBs 1. RG III – How can I look past his dominance? He posted 320 passing yards, including the 88-yard catch and sprint (YAC!!!!) from Pierre Garcon, with two touchdowns and 42 rushing yards. 2. Matt Ryan – He positively crushed it against the Falcons. Expectations were sky-high for the Atlanta offense, and Ryan delivered [...]

There have been numerous shark sightings on both coasts this summer. Here in SoCal, a baby great white was pulled from the water by excited fishermen a couple weeks ago before aquarium officials released it back to the water. On the East Coast, there have been a number of reports about sharks looming near the [...]

It’s hard not to like what’s been happening in Buffalo this offseason. There are the obvious moves in free agency to bolster the defense with Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. On Monday, the Bills solidified the running back position by extending Fred Jackson through the 2014 season. Jackson was a workhorse for the Bills in [...]

Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers eagerly anticipated Thursday’s trade deadline. For weeks, local newspaper columnists, radio and television personalities shouted from the rooftops about the team’s need for a point guard. They pondered what appeared to be the likely departure of Pau Gasol and dissected his every movement on the court while questioning his [...]

I wrote earlier about Jack Del Rio’s dismissal by the Jaguars. He led Jacksonville to a 3-8 record before getting the news of massive changes to come. As you’d expect from the former linebacker, the defense led the way for this squad. In fact, Jacksonville ranks fifth in total defense at 18.2 points allowed per [...]
