If you’re like me, your bosses are out for the day and to cope with the monotony of cube life, you fired up ESPN Watch to catch the Wimbledon Semi-Final between Kevin Anderson and John Isner. Holy shit what a match. If you haven’t seen HBO’s “Seven Days In Hell” starring Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington, I recommend you don’t. It’s highly overrated. That aside, … Continue reading Tennis Has An Adderall Problem
It’s been months since Dez Bryant was kind of surprisingly let go from the Dallas Cowboys, and he still hasn’t signed. That’s ridiculous, right? I know that people love citing how many drops he had last year, I know his numbers haven’t fully justified his contract, I know he’s become more of a prototype asshole than a prototype receiver, but if the NFL has proven … Continue reading Where In The Hell Is Dez Bryant?
NBA free agency has started and so continues the unending news cycle that is “the association.” The most notable news has come out of California with the Los Angeles Lakers stocking up as much talent as they can as they look for a title push with LeBron James and the Golden State Warriors signing embattled center, DeMarcus Cousins, just last night.

Has there been a greater battle between millennials and whichever letter defines the older generation than Phil Mickelson’s “meltdown” on Saturday? My dad, an established old guy, thinks being banned from all future US Opens is a fair punishment. I saw some old British guy on TV, John Hopkins (great name), treating Phil’s actions like he clubbed a baby seal, or worse, got taco bell … Continue reading Phil Mickelson May Not Have Gotten The Career Grand Slam, But He Was The Cool Dad On Father’s Day
I know I’m not alone in being tired out from the constant debates in the media regarding the greatness of LeBron James and Michael Jordan. For those of you who aren’t up to date, here are the spark notes. Jordan is 6-0 in the NBA finals, James is 3-6 Jordan won a big game when he was hungover once, James won an important game while … Continue reading If LeBron James Has Any Sense He Will Sign With The Charlotte Hornets This Offseason
I’m unemployed right now so I’m watching every single sport you can imagine. French Open? Yup. European Golf Tour? Yes, but only because of the announcers. One time they used the word “supple” to describe the fairway. I have no idea if that even makes sense, but it was amazing. I thought that word was only used to describe breasts, but I digress. Before you … Continue reading Being Unemployed Has Sent Me Down The Weirdest Sports Rabbit Holes That Cable Has To Offer
