CC Sabathia is Looking for a Repeat in His Second Season in New York

Friday, February 26th, 2010

CC Sabathia got an enormous contract last year in free agency from the Yankees and while some questioned giving the hefty lefty who has had some postseason struggles that kind of cash, Sabathia earned every penny of that contract. In his first year in New York, CC went 19-8 with ...

Eric Berry Won’t Drop Past the Buccaneers

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Every year there are plenty of college football players that decide to forgo their remaining years of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft.  Most of them, in my opinion, have made the wrong decision and should have stayed in school to polish their skills, but every now and then there is ...

Javaris Crittenton Apologizes for His Stupid Mistake

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Have you ever had a gambling debt and had someone pull a pistol on you?  Not me!  But apparently that is what happened this past Christmas Eve in the Washington Wizards locker room at the Verizon Center in D.C.  Gilbert Arenas was too cheap to make good on his gambling ...

Linda Cohn on Her Suspended Colleague Tony Kornheiser: “Anyone who listens to his radio show locally or watches PTI, he says a lot of things that he gets away with and you just have to listen for it.”

Friday, February 26th, 2010

(Editor's note/apology:  In Linda Cohn's first quote that we've transcribed below, SRI initially put the word "slime" in by mistake where it should have said "time".  That obviously changes the tone contextually of her remark.  I know a few websites linked to the story and we here at SRI are ...

Brian Dawkins Talks Brandon Marshall, Philadelphia, and His Toughest Challenges on the Gridiron This Past 14 Years

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Yesterday on SRI we featured an interview with Oregun Ducks head coach Chip Kelly and John Canzano on 95.5 The Game in Portland. To say it was contentious would be somewhat of an understatement. Canzano basically told Kelly he thought he was running his program poorly, going so far at ...
