August 09, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

There seems but one safe bet when it comes to NFL football, and that is that there are no safe bets when it comes to NFL football. Every year though, we as fans tend to forget that anything can and usually does happen, that teams summarily written off before the season starts routinely find themselves [...]

Playing poker with Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio may sound innocent enough on the surface. That probably explains why fans, at least to this point, have been largely dismissive of the latest A-Rod indiscretions (if true) and are expecting them to blow over quickly with little or no consequence.

Who is the Orioles’ Most Productive Bat?

Who is the Orioles’ Most Productive Bat?

The official halfway point in the Major League Baseball season is all but upon us and by now we have a pretty healthy body of work to scrutinize. When it comes to scrutiny, no one has seemingly gotten more, from an Orioles perspective, than 3rd baseman Mark Reynolds. While his defense has been an exercise [...]

James Not To Blame The Dallas Mavericks got themselves back into the NBA Finals on Tuesday night with another come from behind fourth quarter effort, and although they’re back on mathematical even footing with the Heat as a result, there are still plenty of reasons to doubt their chances.   The advantages that I thought [...]
