I know, you’re probably scratching your head, sounding something like Tim the Tool Man Taylor – HUGHHMM?  (If you don’t get that one, ask your father!) Of course someone will win the World Series.  (Okay, technically it will be a team.  Lighten up, will ya’?) The problem is, this has been one of the weirdest […]

You work hard all season long just so you can gain the home team advantage in the playoffs.  It’s huge in football, with the home team winning more times than not.  In basketball, it’s rare that a seventh or eighth seed ends up with more than one or two victories before being knocked out of […]

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 […]

In recent years, it hasn’t been too difficult to pick the two winners for these games.  Usually a team (or two) has […]

Well the Divisional playoffs have concluded and, after watching nearly twelve hours of football, I learned two valuable lessons. 1)      I’ve got the AFC dialed in really well.  The NFC…..not so much! 2)      A team with a powerhouse offense and a mediocre defense needs to be on top of their game to beat a good […]

NFL playoffs!  Just saying that out loud gets the blood flowing, doesn’t it?  I mean, is there a better time of the year for true sports fans than the NFL playoffs?  All of the fantasy football leagues have finished, so we can now go back to rooting for actual teams instead of individual players.  The […]
