Champions League Reactions: Matchday 6

So the group stages are in the books, and I really can’t tell if there’s anybody who actually wants to win this competition. Yes, some big clubs that stumbled had already won their group, but not all of them did, and even some that managed to pull it out in the end were on the...

NHL First Quarter Season Review

As November comes to a close, the NHL has crossed the quarter mark for the 2018-19 season. We are getting to the point where sample sizes are no longer small and the contenders—as well as the disappointments—are starting to emerge. Here is a quick summary of how all 31 teams of the NHL are faring...

Champions League Reactions: Matchday 5

Group A Club Atlético de Madrid: We need to stop sleeping on Thomas Partey because he’s good. He may not have scored, but his volley really was something else. Also, Ángel Correa–don’t do him like that. Jemerson has a family. Borussia Dortmund: Christian Pulisic and Marco Reus both should’ve scored. They’ll advance, but if they...

A New Purple Reign in Baltimore

The Baltimore Ravens do not make significant changes in personnel very often, but it seems they are on the verge of something new. While we are used to seeing the calm, cool, and collected quarterback Joe Flacco on the field for the Ravens, it seems his days are limited. With first round pick Lamar Jackson...

Should NFL Teams Consider Running the Triple Option?

Each Sunday at 1, I settle in with my lunch and an illegal Reddit stream to watch my beloved Buffalo Bills in action. Around 2 I snap my laptop shut and lament the incredible fall from grace Western New York’s finest football team has experienced since making the NFL playoffs only last year, while going...

Champions League Reactions: Matchday 4

Here we go. Some teams have locked up slots in the knockout stages and others are on the ropes. The minnows also packed some punches on an intriguing Matchday, so let’s dive right in. Group A Borussia Dortmund: Roman Bürki came to play for Dortmund, but the same can’t be said for the rest of...

Since J.R. Smith’s Finals screw-up and the Golden State Warriors’ subsequent sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers back in June, we have been witness to a far tamer offseason than the epic blockbusters of recent years. Superstar free agents like Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Joe Harris, and Paul George decided to remain with their respective teams,…

Growing Pains in Oakland

Following Sunday’s devastating loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, one cannot help but think “what the heck is going on with the Raiders?” This season was supposed to be somewhat better than last year, wasn’t it? What is Jon Gruden up to? And once again, why did the Raiders trade Khalil Mack, who is well-off…

This year’s football season has been full of questions, such as: What’s wrong with the Steelers? How do the Browns have a better record than the Patriots? Why didn’t Patrick Mahomes start last year? But most pressingly, when did the NFL become so soft? This is the first year of the NFL’s new “body weight…

As the groups begin to take shape, about half of my Matchday 1 reactions seem very foolish now. I’ll still try again for Matchday 2, which at first glance seems much more interesting to me, but we’ll see if I still feel that way at the end of this piece.   Group A Borussia Dortmund:…

As the start of the 2018-2019 NBA season draws closer, the question arises as to what will happen to Minnesota Timberwolves all-star Jimmy Butler. Butler recently expressed his desire to leave Minnesota. Though not certain, many speculate that the cause might be the discord in the locker room between Butler and teammates Andrew Wiggins and…

2012. That’s the last year the Chicago Bears had a winning record. Now I know you may be reading this saying “So what, the Browns have only had one winning season since 2003.” Well, I’m not even sure the Browns qualify as a real football team, so we’re going to ignore them. Right now, we…

One of the reasons the hockey offseason is fascinating is because, perhaps more than in any of the other three major American sports, bona fide superstars are constantly on the move. These trades shake up the NHL and drastically change the season’s outlooks for the teams involved. Teams that finish at the bottom of the…

From November 17, 2013 to December 8, 2013, Josh Gordon was the greatest receiver in NFL history. He went for 125 yards in Week 11, followed that up with 237 yards in Week 12, somehow outdid himself the next week going for 261 yards, and closed with 151 yards against the Patriots. In true Browns…

The Seattle Seahawks. Just hearing their name should cause an immediate response: you either love them or you hate them. Even when I could not differentiate between the Seahawks and the Eagles, I was able to guess who the Seahawks were based on people’s reactions. They are the team you love to hate, yet being…
