Admittedly, this blog post was supposed to be a review of the new Umami Burger in NYC. However, after waiting 2 hours of what was a 3 and a half hour wait during Ramadan, I gave up and ate somewhere else. We have more important fish to fry anyways (mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I could use an ahi tuna burger from Umami right about now). AMC released a teaser trailer for Breaking Bad yesterday and it’s teeming with themes and foreshadowing on how the show will end.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Cincinnati Bengals open up training camp with A.J. Green as their number one receiver, and a battle between Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Jones, and Brandon Tate for the number two receiver spot.

Marvin Jones, the second year man out of the University of California, caught 18 passes last year for 201 yards and one touchdown. Late in the season, Bengals’ QB Andy Dalton started targeting Jones more often. Jones averaged 5.6 targets per game throughout the Bengals final 5 games, showing that Dalton trusted Jones to make some big plays in some of the biggest moments of the season.

The New York Giants finished up their 4th training camp practice earlier today, and everything went according to schedule.

Every ten minutes the blow horn would go off and the players would move on to their next drill.

Overall, it was a pretty basic practice, consisting of a lot of walk throughs and warm up type drills.

Here are some specific notes from today’s practice. Read the rest of this entry »

USA vs Panama

On Sunday, July 28 2013, I attended the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final in Chicago at Soldier Field in the American Outlaws supporter section.  If you are unfamiliar with the American Outlaws, they are the fastest-growing USMNT supporter group in the United States, and they offer quite the gameday experience.

Installment #2 of the “Mets Twitter GM” series comes from @Metsjetsknicks7.  Even you don’t agree with the moves, please give a follow.

Lets be real, the ideas of the other MetsTwitterGM’s are simply not realistic. It is absurd to think that the Toronto Blue Jays would trade arguably the best short stop in the league in Jose Reyes and they most certainly are not going to pay fifty millions dollars for him to play in a different uniform. Frank Francisco, Jason Bay, and Johan Santana will be coming off the books, freeing some money up for the Mets to spend on talent for the first time since Sandy Alderson took over. If I were the GM, I would make the following moves starting this upcoming July 31st trade deadline:

Trade Bobby Parnell to Pittsburgh for OF Gregory Polanco

New Orleans Saints, Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram

Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, and Mark Ingram

The New Orleans Saints opened up training camp this week with the hopes of having a more productive running game in 2013. The starting running back position is still open, and Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas will battle it out throughout camp to determine the starter.

Pierre Thomas has been around the league for a long time now, and has been pretty productive when given the opportunity. Last season, Thomas averaged 4.5 yards per carry, which was the most for any Saints running back with at least 100 carries.

3rd year man Mark Ingram had 156 rushing attempts last year, which was 51 more attempts than any other New Orleans’ running back. However, Ingram only averaged 3.9 yards per carry and didn’t rush for 100 yards in any game last year. Ingram is more of a power back, and picked up 28 first downs on the ground last year compared to Thomas’ 16.
