Not As Strong As They Seem...


Lance Armstrong, the Boston Red Sox and my 2012 fantasy football team. What, you might ask, do these 3 things have in common? Well, if you guessed, "they can all be described as 'one nut and a bunch of drugs'", you're wrong. But I like where you're heads at. Nope, they're just this week's topics de jour. And needless to say, I've got some strong opinions to share on them...

What's Your Fantasy?


The line between fantasy and reality can often be a blurry one. And with fantasy football drafts quickly approaching, I figure now is the perfect time to come through with not just a few fantasy tips, but a few stories that beg the question as to whether those in the world of sports and entertainment are even aware that the blurry line even exists...

It' a week of quick hitters, fantasy style. But if you think I'm going to be telling you who to actually draft for your fantasy team, then you, my friend, are currently on the wrong side of that blurry line...

Enjoy...

Another Year of Chicken & Beer...


I don't even know what to say about the Red Sox, anymore. Meh, I'm sure I'll think of something...

The Dude Abides: My Answer to Sight & Sound's 50 Greatest Films of ALL TIME


It's an interesting time right now in the world that makes up my sports viewing consciousness. The Red Sox are proving more and more each day that they're nothing more than a .500 team; the Patriots have started camp, but are still a few weeks away from really grabbing my attention; and in an odd yet predictable turn of events, the entire world seems to be caught up in a major sporting event (the Olympics) that I find about as interesting as...well, about as interesting as an amateur track & swim meet...

That being the case, I'm turning the bulk of my allotted attention this week to the latest release of Sight & Sound's famous poll that, once every decade, ranks the 50 "best" films of ALL TIME. Needless to say, I've got some beef. And seeing as I've got the Interweb space to do so, I've decided to take to it and offer my own ranking. Granted, I didn't have the time I felt I'd need to to get to a proper and well thought out 50, but I did get to 30. Which is pretty damn impressive/pathetic when you consider I only started out intending to do a Top 10...

So, yeah. The Red Sox suck right now, and everyone wants to blame Bobby V (even though we all know the real problem is ownership). And the NFL season is just a few weeks away. That's why today, we're talking movies. So get you're popcorn ready, friends. And enjoy...

NBC's 5 Ring Circus...


I don't know about you, but I like my sporting events LIVE and the pro sports teams I route for to be proactive with their roster. Needless to say, that would mean I'm not all too thrilled with the current sports landscape. Fortunately, I'm also a big fan of watching various media outlets make complete asses out of themselves on national TV and across a myriad of social networks. So I got that going for me, which is nice...

Olympics, Red Sox, and even a few entertainment reviews. Let's go...
