Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One; Another Vikings QB Question Bit

If you follow football, in particular the Minnesota Vikings, you have undoubtedly seen no less than 8 million pieces on their quarterback situation.  I cannot tell you how bored I have become by these.  This is not just because they all say different versions of the same never going to happen scenario but because they ...

Wait, MLB Opening Day 2018 Is On A Thursday??

As I slowly emerge from my football induced tunnel vision and begin to look ahead to the next pointless sports related time suck I will be engaging in, I suddenly became aware of the fact that the 2018 MLB season starts on a Thursday and it’s taken me on a roller coaster of emotions.   My ...

I’m Glad The Vikings Didn’t Win The Super Bowl: A Moratorium of Meh

Another year, another disappointing end.  I suppose disappointing is a strong word.  If I was truly still able to be disappointed by this team I would have to be the most gullible idiot to ever idiot.  It was never not going to end this way.  But that got me thinking.  This season was a fun, ...

Hard Knocks Episode 2: A Couple Thoughts

HBO's Hard Knocks episode 2 came out last night I was just going to watch it and let it go into the ether but then that music hit and I had no choice.  A couple thoughts real quick. DeSean Jackson talking shit about LeBron will always garner a post.  Him basically calling him a pussy ...

The Minnesota Vikings Meaningless Game Number One Recap

1-0 baby!  Thats what Mike Zimmer does, goes blind in one eye and has surgery after surgery after surgery and wins preseason games.  No one does it better.  Now, I did not actually watch the game because even though I live in New York and they were playing the Buffalo Bills, the game was not ...

Don’t Look Now But The Red Sox Have Won 8 Straight

Thats a real life winning streak coming at you.  I forgot how much fun baseball can be when your team actually resembles a competent set of human beings working together to achieve a common goal.  You know things are going well when even Rick looks good.  I am not sure how much longer this wave ...

Preseason Primer: Minnesota Vikings Week 1

With the unofficial start to football season kicking off last night with the premier of HBO's Hard Knocks, we will finally get to see some actual football being played this weekend.  Now, I know the Hall of Fame game and one other game this Wednesday have already been played but I don't give a shit about that. ...

The Unofficial Start To Football Season Is Here, Hard Knocks Is Back

Oh boy oh boy, professional football is back in our lives and, as is the yearly tradition, we kick it off with the premiere of HBO's Hard Knocks.  This year, the film crew will be following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers which means we are gonna get a whole lotta Jameis.  The Bucs are an interesting ...

Yankees, Not Red Sox, Trade For Todd Frazier, Others

I am so glad this is finally over and I no longer have to worry about what it would feel like to trade the remaining top prospect in the organization for a package that includes an aging third basemen just barely peaking over over the Mendoza Line.  I also realize the Yankees got some much ...

Sox Finally Cut Ties With Overweight Millionaire

I want to preface this post with stating that I have many fat friends who are shit at baseball so the harsh wording I'm about to use is perfectly fine. Back in 2015, the sox needed a third baseman. Unfortunately, they ended up with Pablo Sandoval.  The overweight, 'switch hitting,' mediocre at best, hot corner ...
