Harmon returns with a pick for the opener for Week 10. It’s time for the Thursday Night Football contest between the Redskins and Vikings. The Redskins are favored by 2.5 in Minnesota.

You know I’m a sucker for the “How this works” and behind the scenes-type productions. Each year, “The Hollywood Reporter” does a series of roundtable discussions with filmmakers, actors, directors, etc. This time out, it’s a 54-minute discussion about the screenwriting process. Here’s the description: “Superstar scribes Clooney, Grant Heslov, Julie Delpy, Nicole Holofcener, John [...]
“The expectations of athletes to perform at a increasingly high level has never been more relevant than it is in today current sporting climate.

ESPN rolled with Les Miles as he headed to the office ahead of the big showdown with Alabama. We learn about his family’s breakfast table and that he drives like a boss. Stop. Put your head on a swivel. Barrel through that red light with a nod to “anticipation.”

The World Series ended on Wednesday night with the Boston Red Sox vanquishing postseason Michael Wacha and the Cardinals in front of a raucous home crowd at Fenway Park.

Last year, the Lakers fired Mike Brown very early in the season and replaced him with Mike D’Antoni. We all know what happened to the “Dream Team” concept last year, but D’Antoni and a team of relative unknowns started the 2013-14 season in grand fashion with a win over the Clippers. But, that and Derrick [...]

Last week offered a strange set of games. Did you see DAL-PHI becoming a low-scoring affair? Did you see Adrian Peterson as a bystander while Josh Freeman chucked up 53 pass attempts? Well, with six teams OFF (see below) and myriad stars injured, fans and fantasy owners are holding their collective breath for Week 8. [...]
It’s that time of the week again. Week 8 of the 2013 NFL season begins on Thursday night with a clash between the Panthers and Buccaneers. I know. It’s hard to get excited about this primetime game following the debacle that was the Giants-Vikings on Monday night. But you have Cam Newton. You have Steve [...]
Monday’s game between the Vikings and Giants ranked among the worst that we’ve sat through in some time. Both offenses struggled markedly, and Josh Freeman’s frequent overthrowing of his receivers (16 times) became the subject of derision and scrutiny across the social media landscape and the broadcast network airing the game. I shan’t repeat some [...]
Later this year, the Channel 4 news team will reassemble to bring hilarity to the big screen. Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner return for “Anchorman 2.” Expectations are obviously high, and I’ll likely be the dude first in line yelling, “That’s how I roll.” In the interim, you can whet your [...]
