If you’re like us you’ve probably binged watched those good shows that you look forward to from the time the first trailer came out, until it is uploaded, legally and otherwise, for general viewer  consumption.

In the football world, there are dozens of examples where a player refutes the pleas from observors for him to make a position change. Ryan Tannehill switched between WR and QB while attending Texas A&M, only to be drafted in the first round for the latter position. Recent draftee Shaq Thompson had many draft analysts […]

The NBA season has come to a conclusion. Chef Curry and the Golden State Warriors managed to beat another LeBron James led team for the Larry O’Brien trophy. Andre Iguodala wins the MVP after being the X-Factor to the Warrios success by allowing the team to go with a smaller line-up against the Cavs bigs, […]

You’d be hard pressed to find a bigger lull during the calendar year in college football than right now.

There just isn’t enough time to accomplish everything we want. With only so many hours in a day, we need to eat, sleep, along with social and physical to remain healthy. When it comes to forgiveness, what is the time frame before a wound can heal? We’re talking in the mental and spiritual sense more […]

Personally, we loved last years edition of the HBO series Hard Knocks.  From Bryan Cox dropping wisdom on rookie Ra’Shede Hageman, or Roddy White harping on fellow wily vet William Moore (WillMo) in practice. The show is not for everyone, yet those of us who are suckers for the game will be glad to get […]
