It’s time for another run inside the fantasy universe. These are the early Week 5 Rankings ahead of the Thursday night game between the Packers and Vikings. Teddy Bridgewater sits, thereby putting Christian Ponder back on the radar. Can he get the deep threats involved?
Everyone in the sporting world rushed to take their shot at former NFL MVP Brett Favre once the first of his MicroTouch ads hit the airwaves this week. I’ve called Favre the “Yoked-Up Santa Claus” on the radio for quite some time now, so I was sad to see the beard go. Some derisively mocked […]
I saw the headline “On to Cincinnati” regarding Bill Belichick’s Wednesday press conference. Now, nobody expected the Patriots coach to reverse course and suddenly become verbose and forthcoming in the wake of Monday’s crushing loss to the Chiefs. His smirk and stare in his post-game press conference was about all you needed to see. Well, […]
Art Stapleton, a Giants beat reporter for The Record, offered a fantastic nugget on Twitter early Wednesday. He referenced Week 4 Fantasy Football hero Larry Donnell’s retelling of his own benching. That’s right. All of the fantasy owners that were wringing their hands for benching or neglecting to pick up the big tight end were […]
Aretha Franklin took to the stage for “The Late Show With David Letterman” and delivered a powerhouse performance of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” Of course, putting the term “powerhouse” behind Aretha Franklin’s name is redundant. Just watch the clip.
For the past several weeks, stories related to Michigan football have been primarily negative and derisive. The team’s early struggles, combined with the Coca-Cola can ticket promotion, led to public skewering of head coach Brady Hoke and the program. On Saturday, Michigan faced Minnesota and absorbed a dismal, disappointing 30-14 loss. This was tabbed the […]
I remember sitting in the theater and watching a world of trolls, magic and a talking, singing snowman looking for “warm hugs.” I imagined this Disney “Frozen” world linking to the stories that had come before it and looked for the inevitable “Easter eggs” planted therein. This runaway freight train of a movie spawned numerous […]
I was on the air Sunday morning when the initial Vine posts of this ESPN conversation starting popping up in my Twitter timeline. Once I finished my show, I circled back to review the segment in question that included Ray Lewis’ comments about the NFL and its handling of the Ray Rice situation. Lewis talked […]
Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs, currently on tour in support of “Do To The Beast,” visited Steve Gorman Sports! on FOX Sports Radio. The frontman discusses Pete Rose and the Hall of Fame, his beginnings as an artist, top concerts and dream band mates. You even get some reading tips with a Civil War […]
This showed up in my timeline earlier today, a random, juvenile joke from the “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” show. Given the gravity of many of the sports stories we’ve been tracking over the past several weeks, this random bit of a chuckling Strahan opposite a straight-faced Ripa was a nice diversion. <iframe width=”574″ height=”350″ […]
Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared on CP24 News in Canada to promote the arrival of his one-man show “Undisputed Truth” to Ontario. Host Nathan Downer asked Tyson about his relationship with Rob Ford and referenced the former pugilist’s rape conviction. Tyson then unloaded on the host with a string of profanities. <iframe width=”668″ height=”400″ […]
For months, the domestic violence incident involving Ray Rice and his then-fiancee dominated the headlines. The incendiary nature of the case crossed beyond normal sports reporting and became a huge national story. Monday’s release of the graphic in-elevator video renewed debate over Rice’s two-game suspension and the NFL’s treatment of this investigation. Now, commissioner Roger […]
I saw this story referenced as I traversed the Internet this evening during my post-show wind-down. Roy Hibbert captured a great moment during which an Indianapolis police officer produced an extra pair of boots from the trunk of his vehicle and presented them to a homeless gentlemen on the side of the road. Hibbert shared […]
