  • Let Free Agency Begin

    The 8th Circuit Court issued their ruling on the legality of the NFL lockout. They said the lockout was legal the injunction barring the lockout was not legal, but this money paragraph tells me that though players under contract can be locked out, those not under contract cannot as there is no employer-employee relationship. Another […]

  • Disparaging “Player” Fans

    A lot of football around these parts lately, so let me stir things up… Again. I know I’m going to get the Haterade. I’m okay with that. I have opinions and they are ALWAYS right. Let me gripe about a certain type of fan for a moment. These aren’t the fans that jump a bandwagon because a team wins the Superbowl, although I can go down that road too (I’m looking at you, Steelers and Patriots fans). These aren’t the fans that call themselves fans and can’t bring themselves to find a way to listen or watch their team on Sunday, instead choosing to go to brunch! Nope… These are the fans that profess their love of players over teams.

  • Pittsburgh Sports Radio vs. Baltimore Sports Radio

    With the AFC Divisional game – a.k.a. Armageddon – set to kickoff at 3:30 CST on Saturday, I have altered my daily routine a bit. Normally, I listen to 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore over the internet. This week, however, I’ve taken great interest in what Pittsburgh is saying about the Ravens-Steelers matchup. For this, I’ve been also listening in on Pittsburgh’s 93.7 The Fan.

  • Eight Best Sports Moments of 2010

    I realize I’m a bit late on a 2010 wrap-up post but I don’t care… I’m a big sports fan. Sports is something that my life revolves around to a large degree. Here are my top sports memories (good and bad) of 2010. In no particular order. Team USA Wins Group, Loses in Group of […]

  • Ravens, Playoffs, Ho-hum

    The Ravens have reached the playoffs in 7 of the last 10 years, an astounding number considering the strength of the AFC North (and Central pre-2002) and the lack of offensive talent that has been pattern of the team for most of those 10 years. In this year, 2010, the Ravens are 11-4 with a […]

  • President Obama Throws a Super Bowl Party

    With the Super Bowl a few days away, I have yet to figure out where I’m watching it. However, President Obama knows where he’s watching it. He is throwing a party at the White House for a handful of elected officials. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) Senator Arlen […]

  • Exporting Textile2 Content with WordPress

    A friend of mine approached me recently to help him out. He had tons of archives in his WordPress blog that had been created using the Textile2 plugin. Textile is a form of markup that is wiki-like. In other words, it’s not straight HTML. The Textile2 plugin interprets the markup and renders HTML that browsers […]

  • NFL FAIL (Or, how Hurricane Ike Helped Good Men Forget How to Do Business)

    As a Baltimore Ravens fan, I’m pretty pissed off at the moment. The reason is very simple. Due to the NFLs incompetence and lack of planning, the team with the fourth most difficult schedule before the season began is stuck with a Week 2 BYE. The scenario was clear on Monday. A massive hurricane was […]

  • 4th and 11 and Going for It

    Congratulations to the New York Giants for their Victory in Super Bowl XLII. It was a classic. It was much closer than anyone expected. The thing that sticks out at me as the epitome of the 2007 New England Patriots is the arrogance. With a 7-3 lead in the third quarter and faced with a […]
