By gordyb | February 24th, 2016

It has recently come to my attention that the NCAA has no rules governing the BB that is used in their games.

By joelb | February 21st, 2016

As I predicted in my post about getting ready for the Daytona 500.  None of my predictions came true today.  In what was a mostly unspectacular race turned exciting on the final lap.  Just when it looked that Matt Kenseth was going to run away with the race.  Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr.  made […]

By gordyb | February 15th, 2016

I just read that the Packers will be required to play in the Hall of Fame Game this year! Not exactly an honor and I wish they could turn it down. The two teams that play in the HOF game each play 5 preseason games, every one else plays in only 4 and that’s already […]
