Darryl Strawberry Was A Poor Man’s Wilt Chamberlain

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Darryl Strawberry was the most recognizable figure on the Mets 1986 World Series team.  That team is one of those special teams that will always be remembered in baseball history.  The fact they didn't win more than one World Series can partly be blamed on the fast lifestyle of drugs ...

Larry English Discussed the Chargers Defense and His Fit With Shawne Merriman

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Larry English was a surprise first-round selection by the San Diego Chargers. No one questions his talent, but everyone thought that the value there would have been better spent on a USC linebacker. However, AJ Smith has done a pretty good job identifying early round talent in years past, so who ...

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Mike Leach stirred up plenty of national controversy during the NFL Draft when he called out Eric Mangini for dogging Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree, stating that Mangini should probably win something before he started questioning Crabtree's character.

Brad Childress Is Learning Things

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Unlike last year, Brad Childress has not named Tavaris Jackson his starter for the upcoming season.  Some may say that may cause controversy come training camp, but I say it's the right move.  First, it means the Head Coach understands Jackson in not yet a #1 guy and the job ...

Sixers GM Is Not Happy With The Elbow Thrown By Dwight Howard

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Next to the Bulls/Celtics series (which is just insanely entertaining), the Sixers/Magic series has been the second best series.  Three of the five games have been won in the last seconds and now the teams officially don't like one another.  That's the way it should be.  On Tuesday night the ...

Danny Ferry Has Done Good

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

In 2007, with his team headed to the NBA Finals, things still looked dim for Danny Ferry.  After the Cavs were swept by the Spurs, people claimed that LeBron needed a better supporting cast to win and if Ferry couldn't provide it, 'Bron would be gone.  Same goes for last ...

The Bucs Love Stockpiling Quarterbacks

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Many Buccaneers fans weren’t satisfied with their current situation at quarterback heading into the 2009 draft. General Manager Mark Dominik did all he could, without trading into the top 10, to land the franchise quarterback everyone in Tampa covets. Dominik and Buccaneers brass decided on Kansas State signal caller Josh ...

Will Ferrell, Possibly the Most Athletic SNL Member of All Time

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Will Ferrell's got something going on, which is no big surprise. The funniest man on the planet (admit it or die!) almost always has a movie, a promotion, something up his sleeve. And now is no different. Pete Carroll just got him on Twitter and he's obviously trying to build ...
