NBA Trade Deadline Reactions

I've never checked whether the Woj account I was looking at was the real one, more than I did yesterday. What a whirlwind? In a move that surprised no one, the Cleveland Cavaliers overhauled their entire roster in what appears a last ditch effort to remain relevant in the Eastern Conference and make a run...

NFL Playoff Picks: Round 3

Last Week: 3-1 Overall: 5-3 Quick sidebar. In 2000, I was a sophomore in college and may or may not have had a couple of online sports betting accounts. That year, I went 11-0 in the Playoffs and turned a $100 playoff parlay bet into almost $15,000. For the upstanding citizens of our society who... Continue Reading →

The Gerrit Cole Trade

Couple of thoughts: Oh my goodness, the Astros are going to have four 20 game winners. Oh my goodness, the Astros are going to win the World Series again.

Couple of takeaways from Round 1: I picked the Chiefs straight up last week because "they had the more... Continue Reading →

The popular opinions you will most likely hear in response... Continue Reading →

NFL Playoff Picks: Round 1

Wait, it's the playoffs already? Believe, me when I say that I'm not trying to be funny or heap on to the already large pile of grief that the NFL has received for not being as compelling as in previous years. I'm being serious. I haven't paid attention to the NFL since Week 8. Now... Continue Reading →

Ranking Every Astros World Series Home Run

On November 1st, 2017, the Astros won the World Series and ended the third longest drought (55 years without a championship) in MLB history. In doing so, the Astros (and Dodgers for that matter) dazzled fans not only with their unbridled youthful exuberance but with a relatively new wrinkle in the sport of baseball. Offense....
