I for one am very excited that the lockout ended. I was getting nervous and didn't count down to preseason because I wasn't sure it would happen. But last night football fans everywhere were cheering as the first preseason games were played. Philadelpha Eagles took the Baltimore Ravens, 13-6 Seattle... Sign in to see full entry.

Los Angeles Dodgers and Frank McCourt

Normally I am not a fan of Baseball. Not that I don't enjoy it but I don't really follow it like I do Football. One story in Baseball I have been following is drama surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers. The drama all started when Frank and Jamie McCourt announced they would be getting divorced....

Big Weekend in Sports

The Pats haven't lost a home playoff game in 30 years! That has got to tell you how bad your season was. I love you guys but... Sign in to see full entry.

Saints handed their first loss and early morning picks

I am here in the frozen tundra where the beer is cold and the ground is colder. I have been here for 2 weeks and will be here for another 2 weeks. Yes one whole month of watching bad local sports newscasters (they think they are funny but are really nerds), and enjoying the cold, snowy weather. Last... Sign in to see full entry.

Brett Farve returns to Lambeau today

Today Brett Farve returns to Lambeau field for the first time since signing with the Minnesota Vikings. It should be an interesting game, not only because Minnesota and Green Bay are big rivals, but because Brett will be booed the minute he steps onto the field. He made a lot of enemies in Wisconsin...

Let Regular Season Begin

Preseason is over. The teams have cut down their rooster and now they are playing for the goal at the end of the season, to be the next Super Bowl Champs. All of the teams have showed in preseason what to expect during regular season. This season also wouldn't be normal without its drama. An ex con... Sign in to see full entry.
