Cavs-Celtics Game 1 scores big for ABC

While the NBA on ABC struggled overall this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers were one of the few highlights.

Schizophrenic SportsCenter puts ESPN’s identity crisis on full display

When the news was announced that Tim Tebow would be signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, we all prepared for the inevitable – a deluge of hysterical coverage from ESPN that would treat it with the importance of the Berlin Wall coming down. The network has always had an unhealthy obsession with Tebow ever since his […]

The levels of social media abuse towards EPL players is shocking

Social media is a great and wonderful tool that has brought our world closer together and allowed us to interact with others in ways we could never dream of before.  Unfortunately, with all the good that social media has brought there is also a dark side.  It’s also much easier to abuse, threaten, intimidate, and […]

The Philadelphia Eagles will sign ESPN’s Tim Tebow

Ever since Tim Tebow signed with ESPN, both he and the network have maintained that the door would be open for the former Heisman winner to return to the NFL if the opportunity ever arrived.  We never really thought that opportunity would come given Tebow hasn’t taken a snap since the 2013 Preseason and he […]

NFL Draft

Why we love the NFL Draft

Ed Note: This post appears courtesy our friends at This Given Sunday. The NFL draft was once a nerdy little satellite of football: A lonely, barren moon upon which asthmatic, bespectacled geeks pored over magazines and spiral notebooks, newspapers and mail-order draft guides. Once a year, all the rough-and-tumble Real Fans would pour in from the big […]
