I love marketing. I love products that incorporate team logos and try to inspire and fuel a fan base. The Chicago Blackhawks put out a product that was the target of much derision, ridicule and scorn at the beginning of the week. “It’s just water.” “They won the Cup in Boston!” It sold out in [...]

I came across an interesting blog on MLB.com that discussed the infectious hit “Royals” by Lorde. Evidently, the Kansas City Royals are an inspiring bunch – straight to the top! – by signing baseballs. “Royals” as a buzzword to inspire art. I suspect that the tune becomes integrated in the 2014 marketing push. Get More: [...]

Vince Vaughn’s new movie – “Delivery Man” – is set to hit theaters later this week. Vaughn plays a man who generously donated (frequently) to a sperm bank.

As parents, we constantly test systems by which to communicate information and have it pass over the radar of the children. Think about it. You’re pushing information about trips, doctor visits (shots!), playdates and so on, trying to have a conversation between coloring sessions or watching bad children’s programming.

Anybody familiar with my work at Yahoo! Sports, FOXSports.com and FOX Sports Radio knows of my affinity for “The Shawshank Redemption,” an obsession that began at its release.

When the NFL schedule came out long ago, this Thursday’s NFC South battle between the Falcons and Saints was one of the games circled as a huge test for Matt Ryan’s squad on its path to New York. Alas, injuries and inconsistent play by the offense coupled with a sieve-like defense have sent the Mike [...]

I saw this story coming together some time ago, a beautiful city-wide event in support of a Make-A-Wish Foundation wish. I don’t believe in the “all news is negative” slant that many people take when discussing newspapers and the evening news. No, there are positive pieces in the mix. I know that we’re conditioned on [...]

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 [...]

Well, with six teams OFF (see below) and myriad stars injured, fans and fantasy owners are holding their collective breath for Week 8. [...]
