Flashback

It’s Monday as I write this. I’m at work, I’m getting nothing done, my email program has decided it no longer wants to cooperate, and I’m good and hungover. I’m a sentient Garfield cartoon. The good thing about a shit day like today – which has been one of those days where I felt fine…

WrestleMania

Happy Friday to you. Do you know what Sunday is? It’s WrestleMania. In fact, it’s WrestleMania XXX. While that may not mean anything to you, it means something to me because wrestling basically is my childhood. If I were to devise a Dewey Decimal System for my own life, it would have headings like “Hulk…

Sportpissy

Seeing as we’re in what’s probably the second greatest sports month of the year (October is obviously first), what with March Madness, baseball’s Opening Day, the playoff picture coming into focus for both the NBA and the NHL, and WrestleMania just on the horizon, it’s time to piss a little bit into everyone’s tranquility pool…

Olympics

I’m not generally one for Schadenfreude much anymore, but it’s hard not to take some enjoyment in watching the absurd spectacle of these Sochi games shine a light on how hopelessly corrupt the IOC is in awarding the world’s premier sporting spectacle to a country so hilariously ill-equipped to handle it despite somehow spending $50…

YES!

What do we have here? Why that’s my wife wearing a Daniel Bryan t-shirt, yours truly wearing a vintage Macho Man t-shirt, and our friend Cindy in a Dolph Ziggler t-shirt in a photo taken over a month ago inside a luxury box at the Pepsi Center for a WWE live event. How did we…

Process

Here’s a hypothetical question that shouldn’t take you very long to answer: Would you rather your favorite NFL team play a very tight game that is widely regarded as one of the greatest matchups in the history of the Super Bowl, but ultimately lose? Or Would you rather your favorite NFL team dominate their opponent…

Trash

As much as I might hate certain teams, (and I do) I’m done trash talking any of their fans. I just don’t have it in me anymore. And truthfully, I never did, anyway, so it’s not like this is any great loss. But I realized very acutely after this weekend just why I don’t talk…

East/West

Not really a post, but something I just wanted to share because I’ve watched this maybe 25 times this week, and there are still no signs of me slowing down. Out of nowhere, and with no explanation, my friend Jamie sends me a YouTube link via text. I’m not in a good place to open…

Market

I am not a baseball general manager, which remains on my life’s most egregious miscarriages of justice. I say that based mostly on one drunken rant I unloaded onto my best friend Jason on July 4th, 2005. I knew how to fix the Rockies, dammit, and they wouldn’t be any good until they took my…

Unidiculous

When I talk to people about sports, I frequently get bored quickly at how unimaginatively everyone seems to discuss them. Most discussions are either rote exercises in fantasy general managership (What the Yankees need to do to get under the cap next season is…), or wild-eyed (and boring) speculation about questions with no answers that…
