It was only a matter of time. Trey Parker and Matt Stone get after the latest NFL debacle, Deflategate, in this week’s “South Park” episode. Cartman’s seething and stalking the hallway, likening himself as Tom Brady in his fight against school administration.


The NFL season is now off and pacing on the road to Santa Clara in Super Bowl 50. The Patriots and Steelers whet our proverbial appetite with the season opener last Thursday. Fans were treated to the opener of the Tom Brady “Revenge Tour” and frequent Rob Gronkowski sightings. Then, we all got up and […]


The glorious spectacle that is the NFL returns to our televisions on Thursday night. The Patriots and Steelers get things rolling, and all of the anxiety of curious offseason moves and nonsensical litigation blows away. It’s time to roll up Harmon’s Week 1 Fantasy Rankings. These will be updated heading into Sunday morning’s action as […]


              The running back position has been devalued (in theory, anyway) for some time now. Committee situations and goal-line vultures have become the norm in today’s NFL, thereby creating early separation. Harmon’s Fantasy RB Rankings Final    


While I work to tweak final Week 1 Fantasy Football rankings, the Twitter feed is constantly refreshed for breaking news and injury updates. And the occasional pop culture brilliance … such as this. Her dominance in the ring unquestioned, we know that Ronda Rousey is working to expand her brand beyond the octagon and to […]


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 […]

On Thursday, we celebrated the beginning of a glorious new season of football. In the NFL, we witnessed the final performances of the preseason slate. Most stars stood around in ball caps while waving to the crowd. Collegiate players took to the gridiron for games that counted, and none was more celebrated that Jim Harbaugh’s […]

The first trailer for the forthcoming Will Smith vehicle “Concussion” landed on Monday. Peter King included it in his MMQB piece. I’ve watched it several times and have seen the attention-grabbing headlines that have taken over social media and entertainment/sports websites. Many of these headlines include some variation of the “Movie that the NFL doesn’t […]


This is one of the greatest things I’ve seen in recent memory. I’m feeling like I want to sell off anything extraneous in my house to participate in the ridiculous Elvis auction on eBay. The header image displays a doll released in 1957. I’ve never seen it before. The auction includes a number of autographed photos, […]


“Blue – You’re My Boy!”  You all have heard the movie line and probably shouted it from the top of your lungs on multiple occasions. Well, “blue” has a whole other meaning and is blowing up social media and news sites mid-week. “Deep Blue” is now the lead in the summer of the shark, and video […]


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard the captivating tale of newly re-signed Los Angeles Clippers big man DeAndre Jordan. His sojourn to Dallas and the fallout over a decided lack of communication have become the stuff of internet legend and countless punchlines. Suffice it to say, Jordan reconsidered his intent to […]


On Thursday night, the NBA welcomed its latest draft class. After months of speculation, the top pick went down without incident. The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Karl-Anthony Towns from Kentucky, the first of a long parade of John Calipari disciples. Calipari had six players selected overall, including four in the lottery. I digress. Calipari was one […]


Earlier this week, the Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals (4-2). I’ve heard the arguments all week about how the health of Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving flipped this from a Cleveland sweep to a Warriors victory. That’s some specious thinking, to my mind, to say that […]

In prepping for a stint on “Steve Gorman Sports!” for FOX Sports Radio on Monday, I read a report that made me take pause and, frankly, made me a bit sad. It was revealed through a Tampa Bay Times article that Dick Vitale was removed from this week’s iteration of the UNC-Duke rivalry. Jay Bilas and […]

I first saw this teaser trailer over the weekend and winced. My South Side Chicago roots are no secret, and my affinity for the Bears comes through in my radio/video work with some regularity. So, when the cracks show from the legends, the heroes of your youth, you sit up and pay attention. Tuesday’s edition […] Fantasy Football Logo Fantasy Football Logo Fantasy Football Logo

Harmon returns with his latest set of rankings. There are a number of injuries being tracked ahead of kickoff, not to mention the beginning of weather issues across the landscape. Things kick off Thursday with the Jets and Patriots — and a lot of rain. Will Tom Brady continue his surge?


The Eagles and their fans, including a prominent actor, have been hyping Sunday night’s home game against the Giants better than any broadcast partner could possibly ever could. Bradley Cooper, star of “The Hangover” and “Silver Linings Playbook” (among others), started the smack-talk earlier in the week. Well, the Eagles themselves upped the ante through […] Fantasy Football Logo

Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer took to the podium after Friday’s loss to Louisville and left us scratching our heads. You’d expect some anger or disappointment following a crushing home loss. Instead, Shafer couched his opinions on the team’s shortcomings or coaching decisions and started talking about the world’s problems. We recognize the greatness of […]

We know of Snoop Dogg’s affinity for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as evidenced by the vitriolic rants posted against offensive coordinator Todd Haley. He’s been a leader of youth football in the greater Los Angeles area, and several players have elevated their games to the NFL level. We’ll, he’s also the proud father of a player […]


The magnificent run of Matthew McConaughey added another chapter this week as the Academy Award Winner addressed the Texans Longhorns. Coach Charlie Strong brought McConaughey, a longtime Longhorns fan, to practice in search of some inspiration and, let’s face it, to relax the squad after a rough start. Of course, McConaughey channeled one of his […]
