It’s been a while! The 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup ended on Sunday, with the US Women’s National Team dominating Team Japan, 5-2.  It was the 3rd time in the 24-year history of the tournament that the US Women have won.  I, like an est ...

My adventures in bandwagondom.

  I’ve never been a baseball fan. Some people would even say that I hate baseball. Those people are correct. But my hatred of baseball has nothing to do with the actual game itself. It’s not a bad game to watch. The problem is that there ...

Isaiah Austin can’t catch a break.

I’m not a Baylor fan. At all. In fact, I like to point at them and laugh when they lose. And throughout history, they’ve lost a lot. It’s only been in recent years that they’ve somehow managed to turn things around in basketball (b ...

Not A Good Look.

  Jingle Bells (NBA Christmas Day 2013 Commercial) BIG That’s how the NBA tries to do everything.  They try to capitalize on a great 2013 NBA Finals by having a great 2013-14 regular season.  The NBA almost always tips off with some great (on ...
