 Share on Tumblr It finally happened. Our national nightmare is over. Floyd Mayweather is fighting Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd. I talked sh*t for years about not caring if this fight happened at all.

 Share on Tumblr This weekend was my first time experiencing NBA All-Star Weekend live.

Readjusting the NBA Championship Contenders at the All-Star Break

Always looked like Pac Man to me as a kid :-/

 Share on Tumblr I was standing for six minutes after the Super Bowl ended. That was exhausting.

A Hater’s Guide to the NCAA Football Championship Game

Ohio State football trample

 Share on Tumblr If you’re new to my Tuesday posts, you don’t know that I’m a Detroit sports + Michigan fan. It’s not my fault. I grew up a Navy brat in Virginia Beach, VA around no pro or big-time college teams. My dad seized the opportunity to indoctrinate me before I could resist, and […]

Man, I Didn’t Expect to Miss Stuart Scott This Much

Stu Scott Knee

 Share on Tumblr I woke up Sunday morning, like most of you, to some bad news. Stuart Scott had passed away overnight at 49 after a seven-year fight with cancer.
