I am a New York Giants fan.  In other words, I don’t like the Patriots.  But I’m happy Tom Brady won his appeal. I know.  It’s hard for me to say.  The words feel strange coming out of my mouth and off the tips of my fingers.  It goes against everything I believe in, every…

Tebow Time-Out

Tebow Time-Out

By:

Since 2010, most people have considered Tim Tebow more of an internet sensation than a football player. The college phenom was a sudden burst of light in the NFL, taking the Broncos to the second round of the playoffs in 2011, before slowly burning out in a disastrous 2012 stay with the Jets and an…

In January of 1976, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys 21-17 to win Superbowl X. That season, the Colts played in Baltimore, and the Broncos finished under .500. A few weeks later, on a warm March Wednesday in New Orleans, a 12-pound baby boy was born named Peyton. Two surgeries and almost 39 years…

The NBA All-Star Weekend is always a special time of the year. We marvel at acrobatic dunks and trick shots in the Slam Dunk Challenge, watch Kevin Hart match up against Chris Mullin in the celebrity game, and celebrate the best talents on the planet in the main event. But, this year’s All-Star season is…

For many, the start of the New Year is an opportunity to turn the page, to start anew, a clean slate. This is especially true for the 25-year-old American striker Jozy Altidore. After a disastrous eighteen-month stint with Sunderland worth no more than three goals, Altidore has decided to move stateside and join USMNT teammate…

Kobe Bryant is having the worst year of his career.  He recently broke John Havlicek’s record for the most missed field goals of all-time.  Supporters of the Black Mamba insist that Kobe’s spot on top the all-time miss list is simply a side effect of a nineteen-year career, and that his number four spot on…

The Jets are the worst New York football team this year…which is saying something.  Wasting away at the bottom of the AFC East at a measly 2-8, the Jets need to make some moves.  They began to address their serious talent deficiency with a trade for Percy Harvin, but the Jets’ woes go deeper.  This…

Between the World Cup, the World Baseball Classic, and FIBA, watching some of our favorite sports in foreign venues has become commonplace.  But there’s still something exotic about the NFL London Games, or the “NFL International Series”, that sets international football apart.  Maybe it’s because, unlike the increasingly international baseball and basketball, football has always…

As I write this, the three undefeated teams in the NBA are the Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, and Golden State Warriors.  Lebron James and the Cavaliers are 1-2, the Thunder are 1-4, and the Pacers are 1-3.  We’re barely a week into the season, but so far little has gone as expected.  Somehow, the anticipated…

Following the World Series, everybody seems to be talking about Giants ace Madison Bumgarner…and so am I.  MadBum gave one of the best performances of all time in a Fall Classic, bringing the Giants their third championship in five years.  Traumatized Royals fans will be waking up in the middle of the night in a…
