Hawk Harrelson will miss the current White Sox road trip

Chicago White Sox fans listening for Hawk Harrelson’s voice over the next week and a half won’t be hearing it – Harrelson won’t be with the Sox on their 11-game road trip that started on Monday because of what CSN Chicago described as a “minor surgical procedure.” The radio voice of the Chicago Bulls, Chuck […]


Fox Sports expresses interest in re-signing Jay Onrait & Dan O’Toole

When Fox Sports 1 launched in August 2013, two of the first public faces of the network were anchors Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole.  The popular pair were exported from the Canadian version of SportsCentre (notice the important order of the “r” and “e” there) on TSN to be the lead anchors for Fox Sports […]

Matt Millen leaves ESPN to join Big Ten Network and Fox Sports

Matt Millen, who has given some rather head-scratching analysis during his years on ESPN, will be heading back to the place where he was a number two analyst for the NFL.

NBC’s French Open television schedule is still the worst in sports

Memorial Day is a holiday, not an ordinary weekday. One of many pleasant ways to spend a holiday is to watch live sports. Let’s put it this way: If it’s good enough for a Sunday, it should be good enough for a holiday as well. That basic distinction brings up the first genuine problem with […]

Bill Simmons has now been taken off’s homepage

If you visited over the weekend, you may have noticed a slight change.  The face of Bill Simmons is no longer present in the featured space that is given to Grantland.  You can still see Nate Silver’s portrait as the face of FiveThirtyEight, but no sign of The Sports Guy. It’s likely the first of […]

NBA investigating moving up the Finals?

Both of the NBA Conference Finals sit at three-nil in series that are surprisingly whitewashes thus far.  In the east, the Cavaliers took the first two games in Atlanta by an average of 10 points per game before winning Game 3 in overtime at home thanks to an epic triple double from LeBron James.  In the […]

Larry King has some amazing, random hot sports takes

In his retirement, former CNN host Larry King is still keeping very active on Twitter.  Of course, Larry King’s Twitter account is different than 99.9% of the social media world. Back in March, the Washington Post reported that King tweets by leaving voicemails to an associate who then transcribes them to put on the platform.  Hopefully […]

Television networks have been fearful of Netflix for a long time. With plenty of movies, TV series, documentaries and foreign content, Netflix has revolutionized binge watching. The streaming service provides content to members whenever they want and however they want. But the one thing that has been missing has been live sports. Netflix has said […]

Jeff Van Gundy reportedly a candidate for Pelicans coaching job

ESPN has had relatively good luck with their top analysts staying in place and resisting the temptation to return to the coaching profession.  But that may not be the case much longer.  Lead NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy is reportedly a candidate for the vacant New Orleans Pelicans job. Van Gundy has been with ESPN […]
