The question for the remainder of the week in the NFL will be, was Mike Tomlin in the way of Jacoby Jones during his kickoff return? In the third quarter of Thursday night’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens, Jacoby Jones took a kickoff return down the Steelers sideline. What seemed to be a clear path to the end zone for Jones, was not so clear after all. Read the rest of this entry »

DeShawn Stevenson is currently a member of the NBA free agency pool. He was cut by the Hawks this preseason because at this point of his career, he’s a bum.
But that wasn’t always the case.
Coming out of high school, Stevenson was one of the most highly touted prospects…ever.
One NBA Prospect scouting service even went so far to compare Stevenson’s game to Michael Jordan’s game. Read the rest of this entry »
So we just had two episodes of side story about what the Governor’s been up to and what did we discover? Absolutely nothing. He’s still the same bat shit Governor from last season except this time, he has a motive for being bat shit crazy. He wants to protect his adopted family! Man, when they find out that you occasionally flip your lid, they won’t want to be around you at all. Those chess games with that little girl? Gone. Tapping her nurse mom? Sayonara. You can kiss all that good bye, Brian. They’re going to find out. And guess who’s going to tell them? Rick and stuff. Read the rest of this entry »
You’d think a simple question like “is it against the law to bet on sports in America and Canada?” would have a simple answer. Well it doesn’t. It might come as a surprise to you, especially if you’re not a sports fan, but the waters of sports betting are seriously muddy.
Players in both countries have of course become adept at dodging the legal pitfalls of betting on their favourite past times – it’s human nature; you can’t really stop people from doing what they want. Read the rest of this entry »

The New York Yankees and catcher Brian McCann have came to a contract agreement. This contract is a 5 year deal worth $85 million, with an option for a 6th year. The Yankees have actively pursued McCann since the beginning of free agency and rightfully so. McCann was the best available catcher in free agency and provides much needed pop in a questionable Yankee lineup. This gives the Yankees stability at the catcher position for the first time in years. Ever since Jorge Posada retired, the Yankees have had a hard time finding someone to stick in the spot. Now they have there guy.
This past season McCann has been in the spotlight for applying the “unwritten rules” of baseball. He confronted both Jose Fernandez and Carlos Gomez at home plate after they showboated after their home runs. This shows that McCann will stand up for his teammates and his pitching staff. Not only did the Yankees get a great offensive and defensive catcher, but they got a leader and a man that is hungry for postseason success. Money well spent by the Yankees.
The big question is, now that the Yankees have spent money on McCann, will they have enough money to stay in the Robinson Cano sweepstakes? The Yankees will still be competitive in pursuing Cano, but they aren’t going to go after him at his current asking price.

Ok we get it, the Mets have stunk for 5 years so you’re broken, sad, angry and don’t know what to do with your life to fill the void. It’s cool, but this in no way means that the best way to go about coping with the failures of this team is to sit home and hate every move the team makes whether it is positive or negative, and while you’re at it hate on other fans of the team for being optimistic or dare I say rational about the situation at hand. The Mets fanbase has become a divided place of logic and sense. Read the rest of this entry »
