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 […]

Draft15

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 […]

The Rolling Stones hit the stage on May 24th to open their 15-city “ZIP Code” tour. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards led the band through a 20-song set, including many of the classics. The band re-released the classic “Sticky Fingers” album this week, thereby opening up the legendary album for consumption by a new generation. […]

Happy Birthday, Star Wars. As we commemorated Memorial Day on Monday, I spent some time relaxing with my family grillside. I scrolled through my Twitter feed and saw a note from one of those “This Day In ….” accounts. Yeah, I’m one of those people who loves information overload and follows too many Twitter accounts. […]

Last week, the Chicago Bulls were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. A report immediately surfaced that the Lakers would be interested in replacing Byron Scott with embattled Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak appeared on AM570 LA Sports with Bill Reiter and Leeann Tweeden to dismiss […]

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 […]

ShawAsQuint

For some reason, I’ve always been fascinated by sharks. Perhaps an early expedition to the Shedd Aquarium spurred my interest. Or, more likely given my pop culture obsessions, I watched Quint, Brody and Hooper battle the mammoth great white in “JAWS” at too early an age. To tell the truth, “JAWS” maintains a “Shawshank”-like hold […]

FooFighters

A friend of mine lamented his early holiday travel plans on Facebook earlier today. The source of his angst was the release of Pre-Sale information for the 2015 Foo Fighters Tour. Unlike the usual chase to a “virtual waiting room,” Foo Fighters are going old school for this tour. Sure, you’ll be able to log […]

On Monday night, the “battle of the bands” in late-night talk was to begin. Metallica was scheduled to begin its run on “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.” Bono and U2 were locked in to do a week on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” Unfortunately, a Central Park biking incident put the U2 frontman […]

Avengers

“Age Of Ultron,” the second installment of the ridiculously profitable Marvel series, is on the way in May of 2015. On Wednesday, the first trailer appeared for the movie and took the internet by storm. I appreciate the inclusion of the classic “Pinocchio” reference in the trailer. But, as you know from my entries herein, […]

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 Afghan Whigs made a new friend last year when they performed with Usher at South By Southwest. The full performance from the band appears below (Usher shows up at the 13:30 mark). Last week, The Afghan Whigs played in Brooklyn and were joined onstage once again by Usher. He acknowledged a win by the […]

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 […]

BeatsStudio

One of my favorite stories of the week came across the wires when Colin Kaepernick was fined for wearing his “Beats By Dre” headphones. We’ve been talking about a lot of heavy issues related to NFL off-field transgressions in columns and on radio and television, so a discussion about official headphones and fining players who […]
