It’s been several years since I’ve looked forward to the final four matchups as much as I am this year.  I can’t put my finger on the reason, but I think it has something to do with fact that I picked three of the four remaining teams to be here.  This really surprised me, since […]

I know, I know, officially the playoffs don’t begin until all teams have finished their 82 game season on April 7th.  But anyone who has been paying attention knows that several teams have been playing for their playoff lives for several weeks now.  Now I must admit, being from the west side of this great […]


I must warn you, this is not a pretty sight to see. Boston Bruin Zdeno Chara hits Montreal Canadien Max Pacioretty on March 9, 2011.  This is a classic example of a bruiser (Chara) breaking the rules (not releasing when the puck is no longer in the opposing player’s possession) and the other player (Pacioretty) […]


That’s right, that wasn’t a misprint.  Tim Tebow has taken Peyton Manning’s place.  By now you’re probably wondering if I’ve been standing one step too close to that open bottle of model airplane glue (if that doesn’t give away my age, you’re never gonna figure it out)!  Before you draw blood from scratching your head, […]


Well, we’re down to eight teams in the NCAA Tournament, and who could have asked for a better set of matchups?  We all know that the tournament started off a bit shaky, with so many top dogs going down early.  But the cream has risen to the top and we are left with the potential […]


Okay, here’s one for those of you that just can’t get enough of these hockey hits.  It’s a full two minutes and twenty one seconds of contuous hits.  Be sure to keep the sound up while you watch. The very last one is a classic example of the need to know what’s going on around […]


Now that round two is finally over, we all face the daunting task of searching the shambles that once were our brackets for something to be encouraged about.  The scene resembles the gathering of the dead after a classic battle between the Greeks and Trojans in the epic movie Troy.  If I were an eternal […]


Back in February I told you several key things about the whole Manning story that had to be considered (see “PEYTON MANNING — WILL HE PLAY AGAIN?”, 2/19/12).  I warned you to not pay too much attention to the experts, since they would change their storylines every day and try to convince you that this […]


Now that the results of round one have been officially logged, I, like most people across this fine country, find myself sifting through the carnage of my brackets and thinking to myself, “Next year I’m paying more attention during the regular season”!  (Of course I won’t, since football runs all the way to early February, […]


This week’s HHOTW is from last Tuesday’s game in Philadelphia where the Flyers were hosting the Detroit Red Wings. I must warn you, this is not a pretty hit.  Detroit’s Niklas Kronwall takes out (literally) Philly’s Jakub Voracek with a viscious hit that nearly knocks him out cold.  Kronwall turns just before impact in order to […]
