Last week in the picks we once again had a very nice week.  The pics got four games right and no games wrong.  Of course it is still early in the season and the polls are still working to get the teams in the right order.  Last year after a great start the right picks […]

Has Michael Vick become a Crybaby?

By gordyb | September 28th, 2011

The answer is yes! Whenever a NFL Player tries to play the”poor me” card, they always lose. This is something I never expected from MV! We had been led to believe in his pristine athleticism. We had already been fed the “poor me” stuff from the talking heads but never in a thousand years did […]

Destroying College Sports From the Inside!

By gordyb | September 23rd, 2011

We have all been following the merry-go-round of our Division I College teams. No school seems secure in any of the Major conferences. When tradidion plays money, tradition always loses! How sad.

By gordyb | September 14th, 2011

We are barely into the 2011 College season and already we are hearing the sad pathetic cries from the talking heads on ESPN who would totally destroy the college game. In their view the poor college atheles are owed some monetary remuneration! Nothing could be further from the truth. Not only are they afforded a […]

NASCAR Playoffs 2011 Set

By joelb | September 11th, 2011

With the new format for 2011 there was quite a bit of excitement even if the last race results were not exactly what NASCAR had hoped for. I’m sure that they were thinking that in the last few races the racers would change spots and someone would make it with someone else falling out. It […]
