A Giant Upset In Arizona

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Feb 4, 2008

... the entire NFC playoffs, including being a 13 point underdog against New England going into Sunday's game.

They especially believed in their quarterback Eli Manning when nobody else wouldafter it seemed as if Eli could do nothing right. In the very end, it payed off as they shocked the football world.

Before the week 17 game with the Giants and Patriots, NFL Network correspondent Cris Collinsworth said, "I don't know why the Giants feel as if this is a big game for them, they have nothing to win and nothing to lose tonight."

The road to a championship has to begin... (more)

... ask if they’d like to be featured. Then I do a little research and come up with my questions.

Atlanta: Southern Charm, World Class

By tnecvolfan2001, published on Jan 16, 2008

...and one of them would be spring. Two things about spring are the many festivals here including The Dogwood Festival, or as I know it, PollenFest!. It's the official opening of spring festivals here which usually drag on toward the end of June. Spring is also the unofficial opening of college football season. Its when our favorite teams, like the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers have their spring games. And you don't need an excuse to begin talking about college football, either, so bone up so you'll be ready for fall kickoff!A Little Of This, A Little Of That: Atlanta is a great... (more)

Scab! The Writers' Strike

By Philip Heavy, published on Jan 4, 2008

....5in; line-height: 200%;">But I’ve saved the best for last. An action-drama story. A handsome pizza guy finds fame and fortune while delivering a large pie with tomatoes and bacon to a powerful movie producer. It’s Do The Right Thing meets The Waterboy, minus the riots and football, and with a lot of hot women, and maybe some gunplay. Think a deep dish James Bond.

Oh. I see. Well, think on it and get back to me. I guess I’ll just wait—right, your pizza. I’ve got it right... (more)

THE LAST MAN STANDING

By Chedvah, published on Dec 14, 2007

I am a football fan; at first my intentions for joining the acclaimed world of ‘footie’ were ulterior. I was strongly motivated by the fact that the guy I had my eye on at the time, was so totally into footie. I have never been one to rely on my looks and so I used my intellectual side and learnt and studied footie as a whole, his team and yes my endeavours paid off. Well the footie caught on and years later, I am still totally hooked. So I too have held my bated breath as England began and has carried out its quest in the hunt for the next England Football Manager. A job not entirely... (more)

Pick a sport and stick to it

By M Harwood, published on Dec 10, 2007

...Formula One (Lewis Hamilton), Boxing (Amir Kahn), and of course the recurring example at each Wimbledon event (Henman is never going to win, reading that vibrant Comic Sans writing on the very aged wall). Maybe I have a bias towards true followers of sport. I, after all, support my local football team through thick and thin. When they lose, we lose. This doesn’t seem to happen with the fickle British public. Once the race, match, fight or game is lost - their faceless interest falls with it. Isn’t it time we stopped kidding ourselves that we have such a immense... (more)

Dog from "Air Bud" films in steroid scandal

By Shawn Norris, published on Dec 6, 2007

Beverly Hills, CA - I.M.D.B.’s plot analysis for the Disney Film Air Bud: Golden Receiver is as simple as the “Story of a golden retriever who can play football,” however today’s allegations could change that plotline forever. A new athlete was indicted today for the alleged use of Human Growth Hormone, as former Maine Senator and Disney Chairman George Mitchell added professional athlete and former employee Buddy the Dog AKA “Air Bud” to the growing list of athletes under investigation for using performance enhancing drugs to meet the ever evolving demand for bigger faster and stronger... (more)

The BCS is B.S.!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Dec 4, 2007

This whole Bowl Championship Series (BCS) thing is a big load B.S as far as I’m concerned. Why NCAA Division I football won’t embrace the idea of a playoff system is beyond me and this season should be a prime example of why such a format is needed. The powers that be in college football should be ashamed of themselves – how long are you going to drag this sport down and hold fans throughout the country hostage? People want a clear-cut winner and it’s not rocket science to figure out how it should be done. All of the lower-level divisions in college football have a playoff system.... (more)

The Road Less Traveled

...their body with steroids. But the sport that comes to mind that serves no purpose in athletic ability is golf. There's no need to bulk up. But what do I know? Prove me wrong! That's a whole new topic anyways... In high school there was a friend of mine who took steroids because he played football. Yes, he looked great with a body like a greek god. Do you know where he is now? He's dead! Plain and pure F'in simple! Do you feel like losing your hair, having Severe mood swings, reduced sperm count, impotence, enlarged prostate, depression, and thoughts of suicide? The list goes on and... (more)
