...which is exactly what the NFL wants.

...although I'm an A's fan, so the "teenage Heat fan" burn still kinda applies.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Joe D||
As a 35-year old Bulls fan who spent his formative years loathing the Bad Boys, watching Joe D run the Pistons into the ground over the past ten years has been quite enjoyable. And yes, I apologize for the dickishness of this comment. Sort of.

Think I read that the current rate for 1.0 WAR on the open market is about $6 million, meaning Choo's only gotta be a three win player to be worth his annual salary...

Congratulations, Brendan Gibbons!

This should be sponsored by Casio next week, because obviously.

Seeing, like, 20 sideline shots of Denard made me sad. I miss his musk...

...never start anyone whose name starts with "Justin Verlan" in the postseason against the A's ever again. Thanks.

I guess, the fact of the matter is, in the present, no one accepts losing any game ever. In the future it's fine, it's realistic to a degree, but in the present it's never something that should happen. Likely, it's because in the present we get too caught up in the finite (down to a play here or a play there, but also game to game) and often lose sight of the big picture.
...that is goddamn brilliant. I'm stealing the hell outta this when I talk sports with my buddies. Well done.

If Gibbons hits a 40 or 33 yard kick, UM wins. Sometimes, the best team doesn't win. Yes, it sucks. Yes, we're still moving in the right direction. Chill the f*ck out. Nothing worth having ever comes easy.
P.S. I'm also an A's fan. It's been a "glass half full" kinda week.

Totally agree with saveferris--it's a fumbled snap with 22 bodies mashed into a pile. Refs gave it their best guess, which is all you can ask of them. Buckeyes win. Bummer.
On the positive side, I can't wait until Braxton Miller has to return his July Heisman. Gonna be totally awkard.

Didn't the Dodgers just announce a $7 billion rights deal with Time Warner this past winter? $30 million a season for Cano is walking-around money for them.

Can't say I ever expected to see the field where I played high school soccer to appear on the front page of this blog...

...not "big" enough for you? Dude went to a Super Bowl with a combination of Rex Grossman & Kyle Orton taking snaps. Seriously. That happened. It's on the internet and everything.

...a "Jerry Kill seeing this schedule and having a seizure" joke in here somewhere, but I just don't have the heart to make it.

Amen, brother. My bottle of Chivas 18 didn't stand a chance, either.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||62 First-Team votes...||
Every year, when baseball announces its HOF inductees, I have a buddy who always says, "If you don't vote for someone who receives 95% of the vote, you should lose your ballot for five years since you're clearly wrong. Yes, your opinion is wrong." I bring this up since three people who apparently watch/write about college basketball for a living didn't think Trey Burke was one of the best five players in the country this season. I'm speechless.

...I was amazed at how good of a receiver Harvin was in the NFL from the jump. I just don't think Denard ever gets to that level. A faster Julian Edelman (who was also a college QB, IIRC) seems like a better comp; not just a slot, but some sort of slot/RB/PR combo that sees him get seven-ish touches per game.

Didn't News Corp. recently "buy" the YES Network? Package them together & all of a sudden NYC fans "care" about the BTN.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||100% agree||
Amazing that these dudes--prolly with a couple iPhones, a laptop and some music software--put out something that is infinitely better than that "We are ND" travashamockery the University spent who knows how much on a couple years back.
