There’s a new dating site specifically for Green Bay Packers fans

Nothing is more frustrating that trying to navigate the landmine that is online dating. Or dating in general. Or even worse, being on a date that you think is going well, and then they exhibit one of your deal breakers, so you’re left to wallow in self-pity in your pajamas, wondering why you even went […]

Xander Bogaerts wants to be the next US Airways social media manager

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is off to a bit of a slow start on the field this season, but don’t let that slow down his game off the field.  According to Hall of Very Good, Bogaerts had only tweeted once since Christmas before Wednesday night.  He returned to social media with a bang though, […]

Sorry Jason Whitlock: No Pulitzer Prizes awarded to sportswriters this year

Ed Note: The following appears courtesy of our partnership with The Sherman Report and veteran sports media writer Ed Sherman. Dang Jason, you were snubbed again for the Pulitzer. If recall last year, Jason Whitlock took considerable flak for writing that he did Pulitzer Prize caliber work in 2012. He even compared himself to Mike Royko. He bemoaned the […]

NBCSN sets full-season NHL records

I was very curious to see how this NHL season would play out from a TV ratings perspective. There were signs to suggest that the NHL’s shortened 2012-13 season had factors that led to unsustainable TV ratings for future years. The season being shortened and an emphasis on in-conference rivalry games isn’t something the league […]

ESPN.com asks most ESPN poll question in history of ESPN polls

It may be April 16th and the middle of the NFL offseason, but you can’t spell “elite” without Eli. I honestly can’t think of anyone outside of Bristol, Connecticut or New York City that cares about this question at all.  Nevertheless, it’s good to see ESPN change things up a bit and go down the […]

At the time, Chelios’ […]

AA Q&A: John Buccigross and Barry Melrose on hockey at ESPN and more

We cover it early on in the interview, but it’s kinda crazy that John Buccigross and Barry Melrose have been working together for 15 years now. From Buccigross’ tenure on NHL2night from 1998-2004, to countless SportsCenter hits, to the semi-regular show they host for ESPN.com covering the coolest game on earth. Though Steve Levy and Linda Cohn may have […]

Rate the local MLB announcers – AL West

I really get the vibe that the American League West is a division that doesn’t exactly inspire much discussion in either way about their broadcast crews, but we’ll see today. Give each broadcast crew a rating, and if you have strong opinions in either direction, let us know in the comments. We’ll use your feedback […]
