Super Bowl XLVIII

On Sunday Night the most watched televised event in America will take place in the city that never sleeps – East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks play extremely contrasting styles but both have managed to get to this game by having equal success in what they do. Peyton Manning will aim for his second Super Bowl […]

Rose to Represent America!?

Rose to Represent America!?

It’s been reported that D-Rose wants to play for the USA in this summer’s World Championships in Spain. The FIBA 2014 World Cup is played like soccer’s World Cup in Brazil, where national teams search for gold and glory much like the Olympics, only it’s the FIBA World Cup. I have so many issues with this report that it’s almost […]

Blackhawks Fall to 2nd

They lost in OT last night at […]

Pro Bowl Preoccupation

Pro Bowl Preoccupation

I didn’t watch the Pro Bowl in its entirety because, well, that’s time I’d never get back in life.  However I glimpsed at it while channel flipping through the second half and – in the style of NBA viewing – I watched the entirety of the final three minutes.  Despite the my limited attention span, I formed some opinions. 1.  The uniforms were pretty cool.

DJ Augustin Filling In Fine

For the past two years the Bulls have engaged in compensatory strategies to replace the loss – temporary or worse – of their franchise player. When Derrick Rose tore his knee in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs in 2012, the PG position has been a high-profile revolving door that’s ushered in and out the likes of Kirk Hinrich, Marquis […]
