I'm late with this blog. Very late. You see, last, week a young Notre Dame student named Declan Sullivan died when the scissors tower that he was filming the football teams practice from crashed after being blown down by wind gusts of over 50 miles per hour. He was 20 years old. A week after the... Sign in to see full entry.

The NFL Network is ranking the 100 Greatest Football Players of all time. The show will air this fall. I'm lookig forward to it. Not, because I'm into all of that greatest ever stuff,but to watch the highlights. Having said that, who would you vote for as the greatest player of all time? And who do...

I'm torn. I'm a huge Pittsburgh Steelers and have always been proud of the way that they run their organization. But the whole situation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has left a sour taste in my mouth. I like Roethlisberger and want him to do well on and off of the field. But after being...

Boy, it's been a while since I last posted. Too long. I was thinking about giving up blogging and retired from my NFL Monday post at the end of last season. Or so I thought. But like Brett Favre, Muhammad Ali, Lance Armstrong, just about any boxer you can name and even hall of fame pitcher Jim... Sign in to see full entry.

Each year, I try to come up with a blog about moments I remember from past Super Bowls. I try not to use anything from a highlight film or plays and moments that I think everyone knows. It's more of a personal thing. And every year it gets harder, but here goes. I saw the Minnesota Vikings play in... Sign in to see full entry.

Quick Thought

This NFL season marks the 50th anniversary of the famous "Sudden Death" championship game of 1958 between the Baltimore Colts and New York Giants. Last year the Giants won the Super Bowl. Two years ago, the Indiannapolis Colts won the Super Bowl. Would the football Gods conspire to have the Giants... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm glad that I was able to make it up there a time or two even if it wasn't the original. And, I'm even more happy that my father, a huge baseball fan, was able to get there. I can still remember him saying as we left the stadium after his first game there at age 62, "I thought I'd never see the... Sign in to see full entry.

That's what Usain "Lightning" Bolt of Jamaica ran on Saturday to win the Olympic 100 meter men's final. A world record by.3 seconds. Can you imagine being able to run that fast? Sign in to see full entry.

"Them Boys Wasn't Playin'!"

I'm not a big tennis fan, but like most sports fans love the big events. And Wimbledon is the only championship I watch annually. This year, the men's singles final in which Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer, was definetely worth watching. Nadal and Federer played one of the best tennis matches... Sign in to see full entry.

The 12th of Never

The Baltimore Orioles had the Washington Nationals down to their last strike Sunday afternoon before Ronnie Belliard hit a two run homer for a 3-2 Nats victory. Belliard hit his homer in the bottom of the twelth inning which is ironic, because Baltimore's loss was their 12 of the season on a Sunday.... Sign in to see full entry.
