Scoring and DEA Investigations are Up in the NFL…Where Do We Go From Here?

saupload_30d88e9

 Share on Tumblr A couple things happened this weekend in the NFL that got my attention. First, Aaron Rodgers took another step to Yeezus status. He followed up his six touchdown, 50+ point annihilation of the Chicago Bears with a three touchdown, 50+ annihilation of the Philadelphia Eagles. Second, the DEA conducted surprise investigations of […]

 Share on Tumblr If you didn’t know (which means you NEVER watch ESPN), college football is adopting a long-awaited playoff format this year. Instead of a computer ranking to determine the TWO teams that play for the championship, a committee of 12* people, mostly made up of old white guys, will meet weekly to determine […]

 Share on Tumblr  In case you missed it Sunday, Peyton Manning passed the most overhyped QB of all time Brett Favre in career passing touchdowns. He only needed 246 fewer games, 1,514 fewer passes, and managed not to also set the record for interceptions in the process. Seriously, get Brett Favre tf outta here. Anyway, […]

 Share on Tumblr With a breather in the MLB playoffs last night, it’s the perfect time to break down the League Championship Series. I don’t write much about baseball here for a couple reasons.

 Share on Tumblr Hear me out! I know your immediate answer is some variation of, “Hell no!” The Cowboys are 4-1. Firmly ahead of where you (or I) had them five games into the season. They have beaten two bad teams, one decent one, and one we thought was good. The defense is still horrendous […]

The Only Four Things We KNOW About the NFL Season So Far

NFL: Preseason-Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers

 Share on Tumblr We are a quarter of the way into the NFL season, and I couldn’t be more confused. I lost one of my survivor pool picks Sunday when the horrible Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers…in Pittsburgh. A team with no offense to speak of beat a team I thought was good […]

3 Reasons Being the Only Black Guy on Your Corporate Basketball Team is AMAZING

ONE guess who's responsible for that championship

 Share on TumblrThe past few weeks in sports have been depressing. I spent the last couple days deciding what to write about, and it all just made me sad. Adrian Peterson and corporal punishment? Check. Ray Rice and domestic violence? Yuck. Roger Goodell and incompetence? Nah. Just a bunch of divisive topics that will give […]

 Share on Tumblr I can’t lie, my Twitter and Facebook feeds have confused me the past few days. I know my friends are smart, accomplished, interesting people, and the general reaction to the Adrian Peterson child abuse accusations feels beneath them. Full disclosure: I wasn’t spanked as a child. My mother was, and she believed […]
