Anyone that knows me also knows that I am a huge sports fan.  I’ve been playing and watching sports my entire life.  So regardless of how things change over the years, I will always be a fan of anything that involves athletic skill. However, I can’t help but pull my hair out when I watch […]


Okay, so maybe that was a little bit harsh and mean spirited.  So let me take a moment to apologize to all of the scumbags out there.  Ryan Braun would have to improve as a human being to join your ranks. Look, I’m not naïve.  I know that as long as there are large pots […]


By now you are fully aware that I am a huge hockey fan.  I’ve gone on and on about the merits of the sport and the athletes that make a living playing the game.  So naturally, being a longtime resident of the Valley of the Sun, I have been a fan of the Phoenix Coyotes […]


To most people, Memorial Day marks the end of school, the beginning of summer, the season’s first full-blown BBQ party, or simply another reason to drink beer and watch the ball game. It’s understandable, given that it coincides with the temperatures rising to summer proportions.  And let’s not forget, it’s a three-day weekend.  You can’t […]


The first round is over, and everything went according to plan.  Well, if the plan was to have multiple upsets, then it went as predicted. All things considered, it actually did go as I had predicted several weeks ago, give or take a series or two.  I told you at that time that the NHL […]

It’s that time again.  March Madness! Time to scour all of the data from the past four months for 68 different teams.  Time to be repaid for the countless hours of dedicated research, watching every conceivable NCAA Division I basketball game available to mankind since Thanksgiving-ish.  Time to pick 65 games correctly, ultimately winning the […]


After nailing the Super Bowl, I decided to take a couple of weeks off from prognosticating, prophesizing and a lot of other really big words that simply mean “giving my opinion to whoever will listen”!! As I was enjoying my self-induced exile, I couldn’t help but listen to the experts bringing up the same old […]


Another week, another two out of three correct.  It should have been three out of three.  As you may recall, last week I rattled off four games that was I picking as upsets.  Then I had to go and choose the one that I got wrong as my pick for the week. Oh well, no […]


Hey, I was three for three last week.  Whoo-hoo!  If I can get the Upset of the Week right this week, I’ll be back to .500 or better in all three categories.  It’s almost beginning to sound like I know what I’m talking about. I said ‘almost’!  And keep those comments to yourself, will ya’? […]
