We Went There…Is Atlanta Really a Sports Cesspool? An SBM Investigation

“Atlanta is a sport cesspool.” – @JeffJSays I mean, that’s easy to say. Atlanta sports fans get a bad rap, and without really knowing that’s an easy statement to accept on its face. But is it true? That’s what I set to find out last weekend. I had the good fortune of going to Atlanta […]

Will America Ever Fully Embrace Women’s Sports?

I could’ve chose any woman to place above but I selfishly had to put up Skylar Diggins because I’m not sure of many things in the world better than her. But today is about some new business and a subject that strays from my usual M.O. I love sports and today’s topic is about the […]

Why Don’t You Care About the Baseball Playoffs?

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. First, I’m not that big a fan, that’s a topic for another post. Second, there are about a million writers out there breaking down […]

4 Sports Podcasts to Get You to Football Season

We are officially in the dog days of the sports summer. This is when all your favorite ESPN personalities take vacation. When the only game in town is baseball, and we’re somewhere between NBA Free Agency and the start of NFL/College football season. (For the record, Week 1 of training camp does not count as […]

He Wanted To Date My Job, Not Me

I had to learn the hard way that every date is not a date. How so, you may ask. If it looks like a date, talks like a date, and the man pays like it’s a date…then one would likely look to call it a date. Right? I met him at an industry event and […]

4 Ways Being 30 Has Ruined My Sports Fandom

30. I’m behind on all the goals I had for myself at this age when I was a kid. I was supposed to be a billionaire, astronaut, NBA player (point guard for the Pistons, #1 draft pick of course), Sportscenter anchor, and music mogul. Not a rapper, more like Diddy. Just talk shit on other […]

It’s the End of Days for Derrick Rose’s Knees, Tracy McGrady’s Suits, and NY Sports Fans

There is a lot going on in sports right now. But every once in a while, something happens in the sports world that stops you dead in your tracks. These things are bigger than a game. No more scrolling on Twitter. No more conversations with loved ones. No more laughs with friends. Some things make […]

This Is It: Same Old Sorry Ass Jets… & Giants

William H. Strafe, Streetz, Joe Sargent and the rest of the seveneighteen crew discuss whether or not the Giants should just throw in the towel and tank the rest of the season. Later, Strafe calls Jets fan Landon (@Harlem4Dais) for an “animated” Hater’s Call  after the Jets lost to the 0-4 Steelers on Sunday. (19 […]

SBM Sports: What Sunday’s Game Said About the Lakers’ Playoff Chances

As the Los Angeles Lakers battle back to .500 (um…) respectability the playoff race, they started off by beating the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday in a game that felt like a tense Game 7. In coming out ahead, I lost myself in the action, thoroughly enjoying the back-and-forth between two seemingly evenly matched teams. Afterwards, […]

Time to Face Facts: The New York Knicks are For Real

It’s finally time to admit it: the New York Knicks are contenders for the Eastern Conference — even if they did get blown out by the Rockets…twice. I thoroughly enjoy ribbing Knick fans because there is so much material (Isiah Thomas, 40 years without a title, Eddy Curry, Jerome James, etc.) and they always react. […]
