Indianapolis Motor Speedway releases awesome Brickyard 400 ad

I have never seen so much goodness confined to a 64 second span than this YouTube video posted by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  It’s a “Sunday!  Sunday!  Sunday!” retro ad that also contains an absurd amount of ridiculously over-the-top humor in an attempt to promote $30 tickets for this week’s Brickyard 400 NASCAR race. Watch […]

College football players want NCAA 15 back, too

The news that EA Sports would not release an NCAA football video game for 2014 was not surprising – considering the ongoing Ed O’Bannon trial concerning image and likeness – but it was disappointing. And it wasn’t just college football fans that were despondent, college football players were as well. CBS Sports’s Jon Solomon reported […]

It’s been a terrible year for major championship golf ratings

I’ve always been a golf guy, whether it be playing or watching.  That’s why it’s difficult to embrace the reality that the sport is at a difficult crossroads right now.  In the wake of Tiger Woods’ loss of form and constant battle with injuries, golf has suffered in the ratings department.

Jason Whitlock’s comments about Canada are insulting to everyone

Full disclosure: I’m Canadian. Okay, let’s get to it. Jason Whitlock has written a lot of questionable things in his career, but on Monday night, he said something that should offend an entire nation. The ESPN columnist joined Keith Olbermann on the latter’s eponymous show to talk about what the Cleveland Cavaliers should do with Canadian […]

Chip Caray makes an unfortunate verbal slip-up

Although that headline could come from 2009, it appears once again thanks to something that happened in the booth Monday night. Evan Gattis returned to the Atlanta Braves’ lineup on Monday night after missing 17 games with a bulging disc in his back. Well, Chip Caray would have you believe differently. Bulging dick, bulging disc…what’s […]
