I saw this earlier on Saturday morning and felt compelled to share. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band performed in Auckland, New Zealand this week. Springsteen opened the show with an acoustic set before breaking into his traditional extended set. Part of that acoustic set became a viral sensation — a rendition of “Royals” […]

NFL history is filled with big plays, heroes, villains and unforgettable figures. Bill Romanowski was one of the most outspoken and dominant defensive forces in the game during his career.

Sometimes it’s just entertaining to dive inside the numbers and evaluate the good, bad and ugly of the NFL season. In the next 24 hours, I’ll dole out my Week 16 rankings and picks. For the moment, I’m pausing to review the Quarterback position and shake out quarterbacks scored on a weekly basis. Forget about […]
We tried to keep it short, so rolling out Marvin Jones, replacements for Jordan Cameron (concussion) and throwbacks to players like Jordan Todman and company couldn’t be done. Of course, as this Championship Week rolls on, numerous players are being shut down. Matt Schaub is back into the mix for the Texans. Ben Tate is […]
I always say that the world could use a little more Bootsy Collins. As I ponder suit choices for Super Bowl coverage in New York, I can’t help but thing that one of these numbers would bring down the house. Listen to Bootsy’s tribute to Peyton Manning.

The Fantasy Football Playoffs begin with a huge battle – look at me sell – in the AFC South between the Texans and Jaguars. Do you trust Maurice Jones-Drew and his four-game scoring streak? Are you willing to gamble with Case Keenum? It’s a schedule that includes some high-scoring games (DAL-CHI, NYG-SD and maybe TEN-DEN?) […]
We see a lot of strange stories flow through the inbox and across our television screens related to sports passions running wild.
