I suppose there certainly could be an argument as to the surprise team early on in the NFL season. On the bad side, you have teams like the Kansas City Chiefs and the Indianapolis Colts, but they've been decimated by injuries to this point. On the good side, you could ...

Larry Fitzgerald: “I’m disappointed in our last two performances, but we can’t do anything about that now, those games are behind us.”

If the Arizona Cardinals happen to miss the playoffs in the mediocre NFC West, they might just look back at their Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks as one of the huge missed opportunities in their season. No time for that kind of thinking right now though. The Cardinals ...

Charlie Manuel Is Not Overlooking the Cardinals

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Brendan Shanahan: “I understand the passion in the game, but it’s time that unfortunately James Wisniewski had to get the message.”

Brendan Shanahan sure has been put to work in the preseason. Shanahan is the senior vice president of the NHL's newly formed department of player safety and also the chief disciplinarian for on-ice offenses.

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The Chicago Bears opened up the season with a surprise victory over the Atlanta Falcons, but have dropped two straight games due to lousy defensive performances. Poor defensive play is something foreign to the Monsters of the Midway. The face of the Chicago Bears defense recently lost his mother a few weeks ...

Are the Yankees and Phillies on a Collision Course for the World Series Again?

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The last time the New York Yankees won the World Series, they beat the Philadelphia Phillies in six games to win it two years ago. Might they be on a collision course for a rematch in 2011. The Predictalator certainly believes so. The Yankees wound up cruising to the pennant in ...

Tony LaRussa on Cardinals Improbable Wild Card Berth: “A lot goes into this season, that’s why the emotion was really overflowing yesterday.”

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

What a night for Major League Baseball. Not one, but two races came down to the final day. And both were almost equally as improbable. The American League Wild Card race unsurprisingly got more publicity, but in the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals have punched their ticket to October ...
