I saw this story published earlier this week by our colleagues at FOX Soccer and it made me smile. It’s a different take on the annual rite of “weight loss” resolutions on New Year’s Day. Started by a man frustrated by his inability to find the motivation and support through traditional weight loss programs, “Man V […]

Last week, the owners of the NFL voted to approve a stadium project in Inglewood, CA. NFL fans in California celebrated the return of a team that departed following the 1994 season. Those in St. Louis burned merchandise and jerseys and cursed the name of owner Stan Kroenke. Fans were allowed to plunk down a […]

Sometimes in sports media, we have the ability to laugh and joke like we’re 12 years old. Sometimes our subjects act just the same. And, that has never been exemplified better than this week’s presser in Australia that left UFC Champion Ronda Rousey in stitches. Rousey was answering a question about how to attack striker […]

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 […]

        It’s go time. The 2015 NFL season kicks off tonight as the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers square off. The long national nightmare of “DeflateGate” has been tabled for the moment and we’re on to real, hard-hitting action. Here are Harmon’s Fantasy WR Rankings FINAL. Have to be on record. […]

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 […]

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 […]

“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
