Last month, radio stations descended on the Sheraton Times Square for the annual congregation that accompanies the Super Bowl. During the week leading up to the game, current and former players, Hollywood stars and media personalities do interviews with these stations, often to promote a product or charitable cause. They generally roll through their careers, [...]
One of the stories we followed into the 2014 Olympics in Sochi was that of the Jamaican Bobsled Team. Sure, there have been more than a few references to “Cool Runnings” and we’ve all wondered aloud about equipment availability and performance. There was a crowdsourcing effort to raise funds to get the team to Sochi. [...]
Greetings, Everyone – It’s been a wild and hectic week here in New York City as we prepare for the power and glory of Super Bowl XLVIII. I’ve been caught up in the spectacle, the pageantry, the mania of Super Bowl week in New York City (I know New Jersey’s the site for the game, [...]
The long, arduous road to Super Bowl XLVIII (48) is winding toward a dramatic finish. This weekend, NFL fans and fantasy owners will celebrate AFC and NFC Championship Games. The storylines are everywhere, from the battle for legacy in the AFC between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to the rise of a heated NFC West [...]
It’s time to rack it up again with another Fair Market Fantasy contest. I had great success in the Wild Card round and won my 10-team contest, getting tremendous value from T.Y. Hilton and Donald Brown in the Colts’ ridiculous comeback victory over the Chiefs. Ladarius Green makes a repeat appearance in my TE slot. [...]
Longtime listeners to my ranting know of my obsession with Peter Griffin and the one-liners put forth by Seth MacFarlane and his team on “Family Guy.” One episode and its dialogue routinely makes it way into conversations and diatribes and, given the obsession with the Neckbeard of one Andrew Luck, the timing of this article [...]
The 256-game marathon to the NFL Playoffs finally concluded last weekend with a wild, though familiar, ending in Dallas. The Cowboys fell to the Eagles, a game that concluded with a Kyle Orton interception and a lot of hand-wringing. Of course, the close of the regular season also signaled the end of most fantasy competitions. [...]

It’s finally here. You’ve navigated injuries, failed draft picks, “Ninjas” or “Sleepers” that didn’t wake up, bad beats and the occasional wrong lineup decision. You’ve made your way to the fantasy title game or the runner-up contest. Harmon’s back to help with his Week 16 Championship Fantasy Football Rankings. Do you trust Brees on the [...]
The 2013 season has been the year of the passing game and ridiculous point totals. There will be as many as 13 quarterbacks (with a couple of massive games for the back-end options, of course) to finish the season with 4,000 passing yards. With a couple big games by those on the fringe, perhaps 14 [...]
Sometimes it’s just entertaining to dive inside the numbers and evaluate the good, bad and ugly of the NFL season. In the next 24 hours, I’ll dole out my Week 16 rankings and picks. For the moment, I’m pausing to review the Quarterback position and shake out quarterbacks scored on a weekly basis. Forget about [...]
We tried to keep it short, so rolling out Marvin Jones, replacements for Jordan Cameron (concussion) and throwbacks to players like Jordan Todman and company couldn’t be done. Of course, as this Championship Week rolls on, numerous players are being shut down. Matt Schaub is back into the mix for the Texans. Ben Tate is [...]
I always say that the world could use a little more Bootsy Collins. As I ponder suit choices for Super Bowl coverage in New York, I can’t help but thing that one of these numbers would bring down the house. Listen to Bootsy’s tribute to Peyton Manning.

Harmon’s back with the next round of rankings for Week 15. We’re anxiously awaiting word on Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart, Eddie Lacy and a host of would-be stars in this all-important playoff week. Either way, Thursday Night Football between the Chargers and Broncos promises a scoring barrage. Can we top last week’s touchdown parade?
Harmon reunites with Tracy Hackler of Panini America to discuss new trading card releases (Immaculate Basketball), the autograph redemption process (and a huge mail day for people waiting on Tom Brady product), jersey cards, the NFL Playoff picture and Black Friday. According to a study by industry experts, Panini’s “Black Friday” promotion drove nearly $1.4 [...]
The Onion and Lenovo put together a series of videos following a fantasy team from creation through the playoffs. There are eight videos in the series that show the scouting process, draft day and the excruciating in-season roster management. What if Alfred Morris and Larry Fitzgerald were lobbying for a starting spot in your Flex [...]
The Fantasy Football Playoffs begin with a huge battle – look at me sell – in the AFC South between the Texans and Jaguars. Do you trust Maurice Jones-Drew and his four-game scoring streak? Are you willing to gamble with Case Keenum? It’s a schedule that includes some high-scoring games (DAL-CHI, NYG-SD and maybe TEN-DEN?) [...]
We see a lot of strange stories flow through the inbox and across our television screens related to sports passions running wild.

As I made my rounds to procure the vital pieces for the holiday dinner (read – liquor and desserts), I heard an interesting piece on NPR that just seemed so appropriate.
