We all love creating lists and debating the merits and shortcomings of our favorite Hollywood stars and athletes. After all, poll questions get you thinking about putting players, teams and films/television shows in perspective and stir emotions. Some dismiss the polling process as a quick check-box exercise, but that’s selling it woefully short. The best [...]

The good folks at MLBFanCave gave us a brilliant spin on the recent Spike Jonze movie “Her.” What if the idea of the operating system, voiced by Scarlett Johannson in the film, was expanded and we were offered other options? The MLBFanCave spin inserted the voice of Harry Caray in the mix. You can watch [...]

Longtime wrestling announcer Jim Ross is a walking encyclopedia about the history of the squared circle and Oklahoma Sooners football. He’s now offering digging into his vault of stories on tour (keep an eye out for a live event in your area) and penning regular columns for FOXSports.com. Ross tackled the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin allegations [...]

Sometimes you come across the headline for a story that you just can’t ignore. Deadspin’s “Some Genius Painted 35 Black Velvet Portraits Of Pro Wrestlers” reeled me in without hesitation. As a child of the 80s, I openly celebrated the advent of the WWE Network this past month. So, this concept is a winner. Of [...]

Ric Flair celebrates his 65th birthday on Tuesday, as I’ve been reminded by many of my wrestling-loving media brethren all morning. The legendary grappler remains a fixture in the business, particularly as the WWE trumpets the arrival of its 24-hour network. I’ll log a separate post on the network itself later in the week. Well, [...]

We love inspirational speeches. There’s no question about it. From the time we first grab a glove to hit the diamond, buckle a chinstrap or sit down in the classroom, we’re looking to be inspired. Coaches, teachers and parents work to find the proper words to elevate our performance and keep us on the path [...]

Wrestling legend Ted DiBiase used to shout out “Everyone’s got a price … for the Million Dollar Man!” The bit was that DiBiase would offer someone out of the crowd cash to do something and then mock their efforts. “Doing your best just isn’t good enough … for the Million Dollar Man.” Would you get [...]

Michael Strahan attended Sunday’s WrestleMania XXIX festivities, and then called out the new champ on “Live! With Kelly & Michael.” John Cena crashed the set and talked about his pre-fight exchange with Strahan.

What do I need to say? Doesn’t the title of this post capture it all? I saw them on sale during Super Bowl week in New Orleans. And, of course, I saw them on Bourbon Street when Baltimore fans invaded the city. The New York Times featured Zubaz on Wednesday, prompting memories of old school [...]

I came across this article in the wee hours of the morning as I traversed the Internet for topics to start the day while watching bad late-night television. As an unapologetic observer of the second golden age of wrestling, also known as the rise of the WWF, World Class Championship Wrestling, the AWA and through [...]

The eyes of the sporting world were divided on Saturday. College football ruled the early part of the day. No. 1 in the BCS dropped and several other top teams fell. Iowa State beat a confusing Texas team. My Northwestern team was felled once again by the Michigan State Spartans after building a 17-0 lead. [...]

On February 13th, I was sitting around watching some DVR’d “Law & Order” episode and crunching some baseball numbers (big Saturday night!) when I shut down the laptop and rallied. As the title suggests, I rolled up to The Hollywood Improv to get my comedy on. As the title suggests, there were drinks to be [...]
