Earlier last week, Senator Herb Kohl, the Milwaukee Bucks owner of 29 years, sold the team to a pair of rich dudes. While I’ve been fairly critical of Kohl’s job over the years, I was glad to see the old man finally come to his senses and make a move for the betterment of the […]

This was supposed to be a celebrated event. A monumental breakthrough in sports and a landmark moment for society as a whole. Something we can look back on years later when this sort of thing is a cultural norm and recall where we were when Michael Sam announced to the world that he was gay. […]

It’s certainly hard to feel sympathy for anyone who conspired to essentially order a hit out on another human being, but as I watched ESPN’s latest 30 for 30 series, ‘Price of Gold’ the other night, I couldn’t help but wonder if there was actually more than one victim in the whole Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan […]

On Monday, Keith Olbermann ran a smart segment during his show in which he talked about cheating in sports. To recap, Olbermann touched on the latest string of cheating accusations – from Mike Tomlin’s rumba on the sideline to Jason Kidd’s soda fumble – by reminding everyone that cheating in sports goes back as far […]

By now we all know that Richie Incognito is a racist, hateful shithead. It’s no real surprise given that before this past weekend, most NFL observers viewed Incognito as just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill shithead. Now he’s just adding to his resume. But while Incognito’s threats and racist comments and accusations of bullying teammate Jonathan Martin […]

Yesterday afternoon on my drive to the gym I caught Bill Michaels talking about the Jermichael Finley injury he sustained during Sunday’s game. If you’re unfamiliar with Michaels, he’s your typical local sports talk radio host. A middle aged, blazer and-turtleneck wearing blowhard who, in a desperate attempt at remaining relevant, has chosen the empty-but-provocative […]

This Sunday, the Packers will play linebackers Jamari Lattimore, Nate Palmer, Sam Barrington and Andy Mulumba in relief of several of their injured starters. Together, these four have combined for a grand total of 47 snaps played on defense this season. A.J. Hawk has played 214 alone. Even when you factor in the other starting […]

Well, that didn’t take long. Just three games into the season, the Buccaneers announced today that they’ll be benching Josh Freeman for rookie quarterback, Mike Glennon. It’s been a precipitous fall from grace for Freeman who at one time was considered to be one of the rising young stars of the league. So where did […]

As someone with an advertising background, it’s always fascinating to me when I see such epic failjobs by PR professionals and the athletes they represent. Today’s fuckup comes courtesy of New York Mets pitcher, Matt Harvey who, appeared on the Dan Patrick Radio show. Let’s just say he’s not exactly Billy Mays when it comes […]

If you recall, we last saw Jim Harbaugh performing an exaggerated pantomime of a holding call in the Super Bowl like a WWE wrestler pleading his case to the ref about an illegal move he missed. The football version of “THAT GUY JUST EYE GOUGED ME!” In some ways I suppose, that was the tamest […]

If you’ve followed the media narrative over the last day or so, you’ve likely learned that according to most sports writers, Ryan Braun is the physical embodiment of evil. A lying, cheating, diabolical mastermind who was made from some kind of McGwire/Clemens/Armstrong science project, and whose atrocities merit punishment in the gallows of baseball. He […]

Quick, did you know that when Dwyane Wade eats pancakes for breakfast, plays on the second Monday of the month and is caught walking into the arena wearing manpris that he actually shoots 17% better than his average? Here’s another little something you might now know. I just made that shit up. But for a […]

The Bucks introduced new Head Coach, Larry Drew today. I know. But rather than throw my arms in the air with enough force to send small objects within my vicinity flying, I’ve chosen to embrace the hire. In fact, I’ve taken the time to give the local Milwaukee media some headline starters for tomorrow’s story. […]

In sports, there’s a long-running argument that involves whether one team won a game, or the other team lost it. Now, unless that game featured some historically bad choke job or heroic effort, the answer usually lies somewhere in the middle. And yet, in the wake of last night’s Game 1 of the Eastern Conference […]

Part of what makes being a sports fan so fun is the acceptance that in our own way, we’re completely delusional about our teams.That fact is never more evident than at this week’s NFL Draft. And while you might think it’s an event filled with negativity based on what’s become an annual  tradition of booing […]

We’re now firmly entrenched in the NFL off-season which means one thing: I’ve completely run out of shit to talk about. So to help spice things up around here, I’ve invited a special guest to discuss some the off-season’s more interesting stories and questions. Who is this mystery man you ask? Well that’s just the […]

Ever try a total bullshit trade in a sports video game like Madden just to see if the other team would say yes even though you knew they wouldn’t? Yeah, the Vikings hit ‘accept’ yesterday. If you haven’t heard the news, the Vikings did a very Vikings-like thing by hilariously trading away their all-world Wide […]
