The good, the bad, and the ugly of the 2014 MLB Postseason

We’ve now entered the worst part of the year for baseball fans – the offseason. No meaningful games will be on TV until April, and all we have to hold us over for the next five months are the Hot Stove season and Spring Training games. However, we can still reflect on a thrilling Postseason, […]


Dan Le Batard and Colin Cowherd are playing the feud?!?

Nothing tickles our fancies quite like a little ESPN Family Feud action.  Although with the characters involved here, this has an equal chance of being something real or some kind of bizarro-world Halloween prank. (Do Halloween pranks even exist?) Dan Le Batard was doing his usual “Gleeful Troll” thing on his Twitter page Thursday night and […]

NBC hires Krista Voda as NASCAR host

NBC continues to roll towards next summer, when they finally begin their long-term deal with NASCAR. The deal is particularly big for NBC Sports Network, as it kind of gives them 12 months a year of at least somewhat marquee sports programming if you add in NHL, EPL, Tour de France and the Olympics. NBCSN […]

Kiko Alonso’s Weird World of Gourmet Cooking

Campbell Soup’s sponsorship of the National Football League over the years has led to some strange, out there promotions.

The videos you’re about to see, however, might be the most left field things the […]


Giants-Royals Game 7 draws, unsurprisingly, massive ratings

The 2014 World Series will be remembered for its compelling, overarching narrative despite — on a game-by-game basis, at least — being fairly non-compelling. I mean, the very fact that the Royals were there and the series went back and forth makes it a classic. That said, the numbers are there: this is the first […]
