NikeCleats

Over the past couple days, I’ve seen a few stories about custom cleats and shoes as I traversed the Internet. Michael Jordan’s son gave the world a glimpse of some new golf cleats inspired by the original, iconic Nike “Air Jordan” shoes. You can see a picture of those here. Over at TerezOwens.com, I found […]

It seems that the past year or two has been replete with innumerable reminders of my age. In the sports world, I mark the passage of time with the latest announcements of Hall of Fame enshrinements, retirement tours (like the one just begun for Yankees captain Derek Jeter) and the first at-bats, jump shots or […]

With the “Sweet 16″ getting ready to pop off last night, the football world stopped to watch Johnny Manziel participate in his “Pro Day.” We generally look at these efforts with a shrug unless the player posts a ridiculously poor day. If a quarterback woefully over/under-throws receivers with regularity, a receiver drops multiple passes or […]

Martinsville

The Sprint Cup Series rolls into Martinsville Speedway this weekend. Carl Edwards sits atop the leaderboard, having generated four top 10s, including a victory, through the circuit’s first five weeks. He’s been challenged by Jef Gordon (on my squad this week), who has rolled up four top 10s of his own. In fact, the leaderboard […]

NASCAR officials, marketers and those with licenses to sell Sprint Cup merchandise celebrated Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s return to Victory Lane in the rain-delayed Daytona 500. By winning the race, Junior has already put a huge stamp on the 2014 season and has ardent supporters talking “Chase” and “Championship.” But, there are still plenty of events […]

Springsteen

I saw this earlier on Saturday morning and felt compelled to share. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band performed in Auckland, New Zealand this week. Springsteen opened the show with an acoustic set before breaking into his traditional extended set. Part of that acoustic set became a viral sensation — a rendition of “Royals” […]

The NFL kicked off the 2013 season with a high-scoring, wild affair in Denver. Peyton Manning posted a game for the ages, ripping apart a tired and over-matched Baltimore defense. The game played even for a half prior to Michael Oher’s injury, and the surgeon-like Manning went to work. Naturally, Harmon was quick to reach […]

Harmon’s Podcast 7.23 puts him back behind the microphone to discuss the Ryan Braun suspension and the state of Major League Baseball. Results can be achieved through better chemistry and, let’s face it, there’s a ridiculous financial incentive to discover the next great thing. But, Major League Baseball will not be deterred. The question of […]

Lance Zierlein continued the NFL chatter with Peter Burns and Michael Harmon on this week’s “Fantasy Freaks” show on FOX Sports Radio.

Harmon hits the microphone on a Friday to chat up the NBA Finals and the dominance of LeBron James. We’ll save the “legacy” debates for a later day. This day is about honoring the clinic put on by the divisive star. Harmon touches on the evolving Aaron Hernandez case, a bit of Major League Baseball […]

Don’t forget. There was some reality involved in “Goodfellas.” Here’s a piece from The New York Post talking about the need to dig up the driveway of the person portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the classic Martin Scorsese film. Jimmy “The Gent” Burke, known as Jimmy Conway in the film, was a Luchese family associate. […]

Harmon returns from a fantastic SoCal weekend to chat up Stanley Cup Playoffs, Eastern Conference Finals and the sudden roadblock to a dynasty, weekend box office, “No Peacocking” and more. Get it. I started it by going to the “Rock N’ Brews” in my neighborhood and cranking up the rock. Listen to internet radio with […]

Harmon returns to the microphone to scream about the first round of the NFL Draft, his own mock draft , NBA Playoffs and more. He calls for video chat Kobe as coach, a summer of peace for Derrick Rose and offers investing advice for the degenerates among you. Listen to internet radio with Swollen Dome […]

Harmon returns to the microphone, the first “Inside The Swollen Dome” podcast for 2013, to discuss this week’s NFL Playoffs – Divisional Round. Peyton Manning and the Broncos fall: Who’s to blame? Ryan survives. Brady marches on … and Kaepernick becomes a superhero.

It’s time to update the charts and get things rolling to the fantasy playoffs. That’s right. We have one more week of regular season action before the glory of the fantasy playoffs begin. I’ve gone thought the playoff schedules (Weeks 14-16) for each team to find you some value. Perhaps you can make a play […]

I quote Ozzy Osbourne as we enter Week 13 of this NFL season. “I love you all.” It’s been a crazy run to this point, and owners have stalked the waiver wire and rolled over their rosters in pursuit of a playoff berth. The injury list reads for several pages. You might wish to just […]

The Bye weeks are over. It’s a final. We’re finally at that point in the season that the 16-game slates have returned. Sure, there are 9 million injured players on the list for this weekend’s slate of games. It gets started on Thursday with a triple-header of beautiful football action. You’ve got the embattled, confusing […]

It’s the stretch run in fantasyland, and owners are rolling toward to Ronnie Hillman, RB, DEN: Willis McGahee is out indefinitely. Hillman logged 15 touches for 59 yards in a workload split with Lance Ball in McGahee’s absence. Bryce Brown, RB, PHI: Brown logged five carries for 35 yards in relief of LeSean McCoy late […]

The time has come again. Week 10 is already upon us with a Thursday night matchup between the Colts and Jaguars. By now, you’ve heard every angle related to Andrew Luck and the first-half success of the Colts. In my head, I just keep hearing “It’s a trap!” and fear for a letdown. But, on […]

Earlier on Wednesday, I had a chance to talk to longtime Seattle Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant. The Seahawks are rolling into the second half of the season with a shot at the NFC Playoffs — and a nice slate of home dates in December. We get into that, this week’s matchup against the Jets (and […]

We’re still keeping tabs on the injury situations, particularly dealing with Calvin Johnson. Brown downgraded (Delone Carter up in the ranks a few spots) and we get Justin Forsett up in the ranks with Ben Tate out in a tasty matchup against the Bills.
