Why Do Love The NFL Draft?

By Theblueswink, published on Apr 27, 2007

...will they count on Calvin Johnson falling to them? Will the Cardinals do what everyone expects and take Joe Thomas? And considering their draft trade history, you never know what the Washington Redskins are up to. And on it goes, ever in flux, yet at the same time also semi-predictable. Nobody knows, yet lots of us sort of do, and everyone will know come Saturday. _____________________ 2007 NFL Draft coverage: Saturday, April 28th (Rounds 1-3) -ESPN 11am-8pm ET; 8pm-10pm ET on ESPN2 -NFL Network 11am-11pm ET Sunday, April 29th (Rounds 4-7) -ESPN 11am-6pm ET -NFL Network noon-7pm ET (more)

Bay Area Sports is Sick Right Now!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 25, 2007

...and basketball has to offer. If both the Sharks and Warriors get further into the postseason, you can be certain that the electricity in this area will be sizzling. On top of it all, the SF Giants are on a winning streak and the Oakland A’s are in first place. Maybe there’s even hope for the 49ers and/or Raiders to get considerably better by adding some young talent to their rosters during this weekend’s NFL Draft. There are a lot of positive things going on around here and if you’re into Bay Area sports at all – it’s a damn good time to be a fan. (more)

I Watch A Lot of TV

... of Full Frontal Fashion on Metro TV. Very basic in production, the runway shows are the show, but that's good enough. ● And, finally, I also watch a little sports. Mostly just the highlights and analysis, but occasionally the actual games themselves. The best announcer/analyst teams: NFL: John Madden and Al Michaels (NBC) Chris Berman and Tom Jackson (ESPN) College Football: Kirk Herbstreit/Lee Corso/Jay Crawford(ABC/ESPN) NBA: Greg Anthony/Stephen A.

Celebrate Life, Read the Obituaries

By Matt Weston, published on Apr 2, 2007

...for sitting in [only] his suit coat in 40-degree weather during the 1976 World Series.” Why did withstanding the chill of this night game in October prove so memorable? Not only was he decried in the press and by fans for changing the game’s start time to avoid a ratings war with NFL games on television (a charge he denied), Kuhn later acknowledged to having worn thermal underwear beneath his suit coat. Along with op-ed and long-form narrative pieces, obituaries have a strong claim over creative prose in journalism. Sticking to the facts is honorable but, let’s... (more)

Young People Today -- An Old Fogie's Take

By Charla Howard, published on Mar 19, 2007

... are telling us. It’s not the same anymore.” Some fantasize that stardom will be their salvation. James, 20, lays out this vision for his future: “Next year I’m planning to transfer to UCLA for football when I’m done [at Long Beach City College]. Then on to the NFL.” Good luck! The odds of landing a job as a firefighter are slim at best, let alone playing professional sports. But this is a common aspiration of kids from urban neighborhoods, many who emerge from twelve years of public schooling without basic reading, writing and math skills. Others ... (more)

All You Can Eat Dodger Seats? I'm In!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Feb 26, 2007

...machine. He doesn’t look like a big eater – He’s a little guy who’s skinny as a rail. But, man can he pack it in. Joey Chestnut from San Jose Calif. is a great eater too, but he will always be in Kobayashi’s shadow as long as Takeru is in the speed eating game. Kind of like when Steve Young was backing up Joe Montana. Young never became a star in the NFL until Montana left the 49ers. Then, he cashed in. The Dodgers are entering a new era of MLB baseball gluttony. And, I for one, love it! Bring on the hot dogs, baby! And keep ‘em coming!

2006 Playoff Musings

By G'Bre, published on Jan 19, 2007

...leading to the capture of their teammate's killer. January 13-14, 2007- The best weekend in football began with the Indianapolis Colts going to their birthplace in Baltimore that they abandoned over two decades ago to face a rabid and angry crowd, and more importantly, the best defense in the NFL. Baltimore's "new team's" defense didn't disappoint, as the Ravens held Manning and co. to 15 points, all off of kicker Adam Vinatieri's foot. The Colts defense just happened to be even better, holding the Ravens to an anemic 6 points. The Colts were on to the AFC Championship to face the... (more)

Death Of A Dodgers Dynasty

By dodgerjon, published on Oct 11, 2006

...digress. Here's the reason why the Dodgers lost Peter O'Malley: Several years had passed with LA having no professional football team to call their own. Published sources say that Mayor Richard Riordan approached Peter O'Malley with a question: Would O'Malley entertain the idea of becoming an NFL franchise owner? Would O'Malley build a football stadium on Dodger Stadium property? Reports say that O'Malley eventually spent a million dollars of his own money to finance environmental impact studies and architectural drawings for the proposed stadium. The Dodgers also purchased additional... (more)

Monorail To Tie Together L.A.'s Gems

By dodgerjon, published on Oct 11, 2006

Seeing that the NFL is still interested in doing business with the L.A. Coliseum, Hollywood Thoughts figured we'd throw-in our own two-cents on the whole shebang... For a long while we've thought it would be a wise idea to create a 'golden triangle' of L.A.'s more interesting -- but less-utilized -- cultural and entertainment venues. Specifically, we'd like to see an above-ground monorail built that would connect the L.A. Coliseum/ Natural History Museums to downtown's Broadway Street (home of the Million Dollar, Los Angeles and Orpheum movie palaces). Another spur could connect with the Convention... (more)
