He Could Go All The Way…….

Even at the college level some players forget which way their team is going!

Check out Kent State’s Andre Parker pick up the muffed punt and run toward his own endzone!

The only thing more bizzare than Parker’s lacking sense of direction is the fact that two Towson players chased him down and tackled him.

Check out this bizzare video:

Breaking Down the Mega Deal

Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez wearing Dodger blue.

By Travis Vandenbrand

The Dodgers and the Red Sox caught a lot of people off guard last week with one of the biggest trades in recent memory. The Red Sox sent Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to the Dodgers for James Loney, Ivan DeJesus Jr., Jerry Sands, Rubby De La Rosa, and Allen Webster.

Fresh under new ownership, the Dodgers have put the rest of the MLB on notice that they are serious contenders this year and beyond. The four players they Continue reading

Where it all went wrong…

By Ryan Karhut

Investors Group Field has been a focal point for much of the Bombers season.

With the much anticipated hype of the new stadium, management took some bad advice and assumed it would be done prior to the original completion date. Armed with the good news the Bombers requested the CFL to start them on the road for the first four games. Thus giving them time to ensure the new stadium would be ready to open for game five of the season….let’s start there.

With delays of the stadiums completion taking away from the team itself, the Continue reading

Why Paul LaPolice Was Fired

By Ryan Karhut

Paul LaPolice was fired Saturday but why?

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced today that they have replaced Paul LaPolice as head coach of the team. The move came after a crushing defeat on a last second field goal by the class of the league, the BC Lions. The Bombers are 2-6 so the news shouldn’t be a shock. Yet somehow it is. Lets look a little deeper as to why that may be.

One year removed from winning the Eastern Division and losing in the Grey Cup to the same BC Lions, things seem to have taken a dramatic turn for the worse, or did they?

When we think about last years version of the Blue Bombers we think about an opportunistic defense, timely offense, and of course Swaggerville. We think Continue reading

How Did Adrian Gonzalez First At Bat Go?

After being officially traded to the Los Angles Dodgers on Saturday . Gonzalez was part of a massive 9-player trade that sent more than a quarter of a billion dollars and salary to the Dodgers in return for James Loney and four minor leaguers. Joining Gonzalez in Los Angles will be last years prize free agent Carl Crawford and pitcher Josh Beckett.

Adrian Gonzalez didn’t wait long to make an impact with his new team in his very first at bat.

The Buck Starts Here

By Ryan Karhut

A year removed from leading the Blue and Gold to the Grey Cup, Bomber Nation is calling for a change at quarterback…..I may not agree.

Joey Elliot led the lifeless Bombers to an improbably win last week against their division foes the Hamilton Tiger Cats. Not only that but he also passed for over 400 yards in the process, a rare feat by a Bomber QB.

Still my stance going forward is that Buck Pierce should be the starting QB as soon as his body allows him to be. Joey Elliot did a great job of executing the game plan (albeit a limited one) and giving the Bombers a chance to win on Friday. But the fact remains had the Tiger Cats not fumbled the ball 4 times (lost Continue reading

Welcome to the 21st Century Augusta

By Jonny Ali

Augusta National Country Club

Augusta Country Club, home of the Masters has finally made the decision to accept women into their membership. Both Condoleeza Rice and Darla Moore became the first female members at the prestigious Country Club. Augusta has been correctly lambasted  over the years because of its exclusive policies of being an all men’s club. Now it is worth noting that Augusta has always allowed women on the course and at the country club, it just has never Continue reading

Young, Talented, and Benched?

By Jon Ali

The Washington Nationals have certainly gained a lot of attention this season with their play on the field but it’s a recent front office decision that has created a great deal of debate. The Nationals have declared on several occasions that

Strasburg won his 15th game of the season on Tuesday night.

they will cap the number of innings thrown by their all-star pitcher Steven Strasburg because he is coming off a season ending surgery in 2011. In previous seasons this would be an easy decision, but the Nationals are having the best season in franchise history and are right in the thick of a playoff hunt. A great deal of their success comes from a dominant starting rotation led by Steven Strasburg who has an era of 2.91 and has 173 strikeouts in 139 innings pitched. He is not only the most talented pitcher in the National League he is also the most exciting. Every time he toes the rubber there is a chance something historic may happen.

The speculation is that Strasburg will be capped at 160 innings this season and will be removed from the rotation no matter the impact on this year’s post Continue reading
