Tonight's NBA Matchups
Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors - Denver will take this game. The Warriors have proven over the year that Stephen Curry can’t win a big game all by himself, though he can keep them in games. David Lee went down the other night, and I think that will make the difference in this game. Expect the Nuggets to win by 10. - Nuggets win 112-100 Miami Heat vs. Milwaukee Bucks -...

How Many Games Can the Heat's Streak Continue?
The Miami Heat are in the midst of a 14 game winning streak, in which they have won 9 by double digits. Lebron James has been an animal, averaging more than 29 points a game and shooting well above 50%. In their past 2 games they faced major opportunities to end the streak, in the Memphis Grizzlies and the New York Knicks. They handled both teams narrowly, winning by 7 and 6 points respectively,...
What To Expect From the New York Yankees in 2013
If you take a look at the Yankees projected opening day lineup, things look a bit different. Derek Jeter is still recovering from his postseason ankle injury, with Eduardo Nunez taking over. Curtis Granderson broke his arm off a fastball this past weekend, and will be out 10 weeks with Juan Rivera filling in the vacant outfield spot as Brett Gardner shifts to CF. The catcher position will be...
Thanks Alot, Lakers
I give you a solid article on how well you’ve played lately, and you go and poop the bed against the Nuggets.
Can the Lakers make the Playoffs?
This past week Kobe Bryant guaranteed that the Los Angeles Lakers, and teammate quickly piggy backed on that promise. Currently, the Lakers are on the outside looking in, sitting 2.5 games behind the 8th place Houston Rockets. The Lakers are gaining ground, though, as they have won 3 straight and 7 of their last 10. The Houston Rockets are currently 31-27, with 24 games left to go. Let’s...
NBA: My Top 5 in Each Conference Right Now
Eastern Conference: 1. Miami Heat 2. New York Knicks 3. Boston Celtics 4. Indiana Pacers 5. Chicago Bulls Western Conference: 1. Oklahoma City Thunder 2. Los Angeles Clippers 3. San Antonio Spurs 4. Memphis Grizzlies 5. Denver Nuggers
Arizona Diamondbacks 2013 Offensive Preview by...
1B – Paul Goldschmidt – 2 years ago Goldschmidt broke onto the Major League scene in a big way, and many wondered if he could follow it up with a solid 2012 campaign. Goldschmidt didn’t disappoint, as he hit .286 with 20 dingers and 82 RBI’s, while stealing a surprising 18 bags. That seems to be a solid baseline for what to expect in 2013, but expect the batting average and steals to drop a...
My divisional round picks went terribly wrong. Only my Patriots pick was right, the Seahawks, Packers, and Broncos picks all backfired. I even lost $5 on the Packers pick! I thought I had a shot to pick the whole playoffs through the Super Bowl, but those hopes were shattered this weekend. I was especially surprised by the Falcons. I thought it would be another year of faking their way through the...
NFL Divisional Round Preview
AFC: Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos When I project this game, I can’t help but remember what happened just a few weeks ago when Baltimore was embarrassed at home 34-17 at the hands of Peyton Manning. Granted, it was without Ray Lewis, but this time the Broncos are at home and I expect much of the same. Manning is playing just like the Manning of old, and the Broncos defense has been...
BCS Title Game Preview
Tonight’s BCS Championship game features two rugged teams with distinct playing styles; the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Both teams boast stifling defenses, as the Irish and Tide were number 1 and 2 in defensive points per game, respectively. While the Irish have the slight edge on defense, ‘Bama seems to hold the advantage on offense. With their bruising...
Vikings QB Christian Ponder Ruled Out With Elbow...
Joe Webb will get the start for Minnesota in tonight’s playoff matchup with the Green Bay Packers. While Ponder hasn’t lit it up this year, he is certainly an upgrade over Webb. Adrian Peterson is going to have to shoulder the load, as he has been doing all year, if the Vikings want to win this game.
A&M Dismantles Oklahoma as Manziel Shines
The Aggies topped the Sooners 41-13 in tonight’s Cotton Bowl as Johnny Manziel accounted for 4 TD’s and a bowl record 516 yards. That Manziel kid is something special, and the best part is he’s a FRESHMAN. The college football world has never seen anything like him, at least not at his age. I am certainly looking forward to a couple more years of Manziel Mania.
Fiesta Bowl Preview
Tonight’s Fiesta Bowl features two teams whose title hopes were crushed late in the season; the Oregon Ducks, and the Kansas State Wildcats. A little over a month ago, Kansas State and Oregon lost on the same night. This essentially ended their respective title runs, as well as any shot at winning the Heisman for the Wildcat QB Collin Klein. While they both had disappointing finishes to the...
Louisville Tops Florida 33-23
In a shocker, Louisville showed they are for real as the Cardinals Teddy Bridgewater threw for 266 yards and 2 TD’s.
Louisville leads Florida 24-10 at the Half
Seeking an upset in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, Louisville is playing far better than anyone expected.
The Great Ray Lewis Announces His Plans to Retire
After years of dominating NFL offenses, and inspiring countless teammates, the great Ray Lewis announces his plans to retire upon the finish if the Baltimore Ravens playoff push. Lewis has undergone a tough injury. Tearing his tricep towards the beginning of the year. At the time, Lewis was expected to miss the entire year, but has made a quick recovery and is expected to play in Sundays game...
NFL Wild Card Round Preview
NFL Wild Card Round Preview AFC: Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans If this game was played a month ago, the Houston Texans would be the hands down favorite. They might stil be so, but there is a case for reasonable doubt. They have struggled in recent weeks, losing to both the Vikings and the Colts in the last two weeks of the season. While I no longer think they are at the top of the AFC,...
Whisenhunt Out, Reid In?
Adam Schefter is reporting that Andy Reid is the favorite to emerge in Arizona as the new head coach of the Cardinals. This move would be an interesting one, as there are multiple variables in place. If Reid goes to Arizona, will he go all in on Kevin Kolb, who he coached in Philly? Or will he try to entice management to bring in Mike Vick (who has been rumored as a possible option for the Cards)?...
Well, There Goes my BCS Projections...
Just a few days ago I predicted that Kansas State and Oregon would finish the year at 1 and 2 respectively. After Saturday, I am left looking foolish as many were who made any kind of predictions for the top teams. Kansas State was beaten up brutally by Baylor, and Oregon lost a heart breaker to Stanford in OT. Nonetheless, they are both out of the championship picture, while Notre Dame moves into...
The Whole Jets-Tebow Dilemna is Just Laughable
At this point in the year, the Jets are 3-6 with a QB who flat out stinks. Essentially, their season is all but over. They have been riddled with injuries, and lost a lot of ball games. Really, it can’t get any worse for the New York Jets. Over the summer, the Jets made the huge splash of adding Tim Tebow, the most polarizing figure in sports, if not the entire world. Tebow had a fantastic...
Today the Tigers Signed Torri Hunter to a 2...
And while I love Torri Hunter and have actually met him, he is NOT worth 13 Mill a year. Maybe 5 years ago, but not now. I’d say he’s worth 8 million a year, and even that could be pushing it. He is an average player at this point in his career, but he is 37 years old. He might hit .300, hit 15 home runs and have 80 RBI’s, but ultimately I think the Tiger’s will be...
What to Make of the College Football BCS Standings
Currently, the BCS top 4 looks as such: 1. Kansas State 2. Oregon 3. Notre Dame 4. Alabama At this point would be bizarre to think any team outside these top 4 could make it into the top 2 for the National Championship, so lets zero in on these 4 teams. Kansas State: The Wildcats are having a fantastic year being led by Collin Klein, and at this point is tough to believe that they could...
I Finally Get to Sit Down and Watch a Suns Game
And with that, I think the Suns will really surprise a lot of people this year. They actually have a decent roster, with a great point PG in Goran Dragic, and a legitimate big man in Goran Dragic. They have Michael Beasley who still has a lot of potential, Luis Scola who is a scrappy player who’s really got a lot to offer. Jared Dudley is a fantastic shooter, and Shannon Brown is a...
The American League East is the Best Division in...
I just realized how stinkin good the East is gonna be this next year. I mean, lets think about it. The Yankees have their issues, but they are still a great team that will win a bunch of games. The Orioles just won 93 games. The ORIOLES! The Rays will still be a threat as they are every year. The Blue Jays just got ALOT better with the additions of Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio...
R.A. Dickey and David Price win Cy Young Awards
The 2012 N.L. and A.L. Cy Young Awards have been given to Dickey and Price, and perhaps to the surprise of many. Personally, I believe Dickey was by far the most dominant and was well deserving of the award, but there were many who thought Gio Gonzalez or maybe even Clayton Kershaw, were more deserving. But Dickey won 20 games, had a 2.73 ERA, with 230 K’s. Those are some pretty...
How Mike D'Antoni Will Fit With the Lakers
Yesterday, the Los Angeles Lakers hired Mike D’Antoni, former coach of the Phoenix Suns as well as a stint with the New York Knicks. Right off the bat, this hire is going to make the Lakers better. Their main issue is that they have a great deal of skilled offensive players, and they aren’t winning games. Mike D’Antoni will solve that issue. Steve Nash, while he has been hurt, is...
MIKE BROWN FIRED AS HEAD COACH OF THE LA LAKERS
After a 1-4 start, Mike Brown is out in LA.
BREAKING NEWS: Chris Young to the A's, Heath Bell...
This deal was just finalized, and it is an interesting one at the least. The D’Backs, who had been openly shopping Young, got what they wanted. They dumped his big salary, but at the same time brought in another high paid underachiever in Heath Bell. Cliff Pennington is a great add and will give them a bit more depth in the infield. But the D’Backs still need a solid, proven shortstop....
Jason Giambi is Interviewing for Rockies...
If you don’t believe me, check out this article: http://www.denverpost.com/rockies/ci_21780500/jason-giambi-will-interview-colorado-rockies-manager I guess not everyone thinks it’s that crazy. But c’mon, the guy was still playing for the team JUST last year! Can you imagine as a player having to go out and play for the guy who was your teammate just a few months ago? I would...
Monday Night Football Preview - Broncos/Chargers
On Monday night, Peyton Manning can begin to quiet a lot doubters with a big win in San Diego. He has put up big stats thus far into the season, but for many it hasn’t been enough. People have still been critical of Manning’s arm and ability to go out and win tough football games. But Monday, he can begin to change that. He needs to go out and make big throws early and often, and I...
Great Sunday for Sports!

Game of the Day: Notre Dame 20 - Stanford 13
Notre Dame defeats Stanford 20 - 13 in Overtime in a highly contested match. Notre Dame’s Kyle Brindza kicked the field goal to tie the game at 13 with only 20 seconds remaining. Notre Dame scored on the opening drive of overtime and managed to stop Stanford’s Stepfan Taylor at the goal line during the final two plays of the game. The last play was close, but the refs went to replay...
Melky Cabrera Reinstated by the MLB, Left off the...
It has officially been 50 games since Melky Cabrera was suspended by Major League Baseball for violating the league’s substance abuse policy and embarrassed himself with his horrible cover up attempt. However, the San Fran Giants decided not to include him on the roster upon reinstatement, and have stated that he will not play in any part of the postseason. It’s hard to believe he...
The St. Louis Cardinals Find a Way to Win... Again
Just like last year, the Cardinals were down to their last strike to be eliminated from the playoffs, and still came through to win the game. They seem to be the New York Giants of the MLB. The NLCS matchup is an interesting one, as both the Cards and the Giants are coming in with an incredible amount of momentum and confidence. It will be exciting, and I predict the Cardinals to win it in 7. And...
Yankees defeat the Baltimore Orioles 3-1
As much as it pains me, the Yankees are moving on. I’m not a Baltimore fan, I just don’t like the Yanks. But I gotta give them credit, they found a way to win the series, and what a series it was. This postseason has been a lot of fun to watch thus far, and there’s still a lot more to go. And just a little side note, that ball WAS a home run. From the view I saw, the...
I'm not buying all the Denver Nuggets hype
ESPN ranked the Denver Nuggets number 2 in the Western Conference for the 2012-2013 season, and I have some serious issues with that. My first issue, is that there are at least 3 teams that are a whole lot better than them. The Thunder, Spurs and Lakers quickly come to mind, and I think the Mavs are better than them as well. Yet, ESPN has hoisted the Nuggets to the number 2 spot in the West, only...
NFL Standings End of Year Projections
These are not up to date standings, but rather projections for the standing at the end of the year. NFC EAST: 1. NY Giants - They aren’t always consistent, but they are experienced and they know how to overcome adversity. 2. Philadelphia Eagles - This team is way too talented to miss the playoffs again. 3. Dallas Cowboys - Like the Eagles, they have a lot of talent. They just...
Why Steve Nash Will Not be Himself in LA
Steve Nash’s days are numbered as a healthy, productive point guard. He is clearly one of the best point guards of all time, if not one of the best all around players of all time. He is 38 years old, and he has absolutely defied the odds as far as being an older, productive player. Throughout his entire career in Phoenix, he has often been plagued with back issues. If you have ever watched a...
2012-2013 NBA Predictions
Eastern Conference Standings Predictions: 1. Miami Heat - A team that didn’t really need to improve in the off season but did anyways, with the additions of Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis. Miami is scary good. 2. Chicago Bulls - With Derrick Rose coming back and a team that is very good without him, the Bulls are set for another great year. 3. Boston Celtics - Boston is aging, and lost Ray...
