NCAA Men’s Football Top 25 Update:

  • LSU continues its scoring orgy under new coach Orgeron, when big Len ploughs a big hole through the Ole Miss defense. #Rebels #Tigers
  • Huskies continue to hog the headlines in the Pac-12 with a thorough thrashing of the washed up Beavers; OSU limps home with its flapper between its legs. #Beavers #Huskies
  • It was chock full of yards, not to mention officials’ whistles in Lubbock. Each team compiles an eye popping 856 yards, in a contest that looked more like the NBA All-Star game than college football. #Sooners #RedRaiders
  • Nebraska strings along the Boilermakers before Armstrong finally decides to go long. #Cornhuskers #Boilermakers
  • Anatomy of Tiger taming in Annapolis, as Navy grinds out an impressive 14 point win over Memphis. #Midshipmen #Tigers
  • Arkansas gets a serious case of razor burn after close encounter of the worst kind in Auburn. #Razorbacks #Tigers
  • This is one white out game that the Urban legend will want to forget; Lions leave the Happy Valley crowd in a jubilant frenzy when they rise up late in the game and bite the Bucks with a savage comeback that would have made Joe Pa proud. #Lions #Buckeyes
  • Utes got rewarded for sticking with a running game that reaped consistent dividends; UCLA paid the price for staying a little too Fafaul to its prolific passing attack. #Bruins #Utes
  • Skyler airs it out with some major success in Morgantown. #HornedFrogs #Mountaineers
  • In Kalamazoo, Westerners show Easterners what it means to be a top 20 ranked team. #Eagles #Broncos
  • Highly regarded Houston gets set to the emergency room after Ward has problems all day warding off an intense Mustang pass rush. #Cougars #Mustangs
  • Another black eye for the light in the loafers Illini, as Michigan toys with them in the Big House … like a fat, lazy cat that got a bit bored with the dead mouse… but was that fake punt with a 34-0 lead in the 4th really necessary, Jim? #Wolverines #Illini
  • QB Mitch was nearly pitcher perfect in road demolition of virtually defenseless Virginia. #TarHeels #Cavaliers
  • Stubborn Badgers persist for Chryst; travel to Iowa City and walk off yet again with the Heartland Trophy. #Badgers #Hawkeyes
  • Boise boys do a great job keeping their poise after Moa gives them a much needed helping hand. #Cougars #Broncos
  • Jarring defeat for the A&M’ers as they play Bama tight and tough for nearly 3 quarters, only to see things fall quickly apart at Tuscaloosa when Ford’s ball bearings are jarred loose. #Aggies #CrimsonTide
  • Wolfpack should never have packed their bags for this one; simply stated, they were out of their league against Louisville and Action Jackson. #Wolfpack #Cardinals

MLB Playoffs Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 10-22


MLB Playoffs Update (NLCS):

  • Another milestone reached by the scrappy Cubs, as they notch their first pennant since Gabby Hartnett and the shot in the dark. Maddon’s men showed their toughness once again, taking out a very determined bunch of Dodgers; now comes a fight to the death with another team of destiny and near misses. We shall see which team with the C comes out on top, and the nice part is at least one incredibly long dry spell will finally be over. #Indians #Cubs
  • Cubs are now heard to gloat, “What @#$#@$’ing goat?!”

NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 10-20



NHL Update:

  • Bruins’ Patrice says his peace with a big stick. #Devils #Bruins
  • Ducks refuse to expire in the face of home standing Flyers. #Ducks #Flyers
  • Coyotes continue to look like road kill, and the season’s just begun. #Coyotes #Canadiens
  • Another lovely effort from that super mover in the net Varlamov. #Avalanche #Lightning
  • Washington never tires from ringing the register with its Big O. #Capitals #Panthers
  • Staal is again his stalwart self in 2016, with two more big goals (nearly 1/7th his total from 2015). #Wild #Leafs
  • On the ice in Dallas, Kings take the occasion to get off the schneid. #Stars #Kings
  • Hurricanes given free rein to douse the Flames. #Hurricanes #Flames
  • Blues goalie is fodder for rampaging Oiler Connor. #Oilers #Blues
  • Tonight’s hero was a different Sedin, but the result was one we’ve already seen from the unbeaten and confident Canucks. #Canucks #Sabres
  • Fantastic comeback in Pittsburgh, as the Pens press hard to confirm June’s mastery of the still psyched out Sharks. #Sharks #Penguins

MLB Playoffs Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 10-20


MLB Playoffs Update (NLCS):

  • Cubs scrub Chavez Ravine with some very strong Blanton bleach in an uber disruptive 8th inning, and head home firmly in control … if that’s possible for still nervous Northsiders. Yes, they have some unpleasant memories, and will have to deal with Kershaw in Game 6, but they also are clearly the more talented team in terms of offensive prowess, fielding, team speed and relief pitching. #Cubs #Dodgers
  • Over and above the genius Epstein, Boston’s contribution to the Cub winning starts with lefty Lester.  #Cubs #Dodgers

MLB Playoffs Update, Recap and Perspectives: Wednesday, 10-19



MLB Playoffs Update (ALCS and NLCS):

  • It’s official — Cleveland has officially clawed its way to the precipice of another major sports title. And for the Jays, the silence at the plate was deafening. #BlueJays #Indians
  • Cubs emerge from their slumber hitting Urias to Uranus, with the major moonshots coming in huge 4-run 4th and 5-run 6th inning rallies. Now, regardless of what Kershaw does to them in Game 5, they will be returning to the friendly confines for the stretch run. #Indians #Dodgers

NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Tuesday, 10-18



NHL Update:

  • Pitlick feast for Tyler and the Oilers. #Oilers #Hurricanes
  • For now, the Sedin machine is running clean and doing a great job carrying the Blue and Green. #Canucks #Blues
  • Brayden points TB to victory in this exhausting Florida shootout. #Lightning #Panthers
  • Hossa that for a 500th goal celebration for made man Marian. #Blackhawks #Flyers
  • Kings lack their usual sting, and fall to the call of the Wild in St. Paul. #Wild #Kings
  • Nashville’s Cracknell gets cracking with 2 goals, and celebrates after the game at where else…. the Cracker Barrel. #Predators #Stars
  • Sens put the Coyotes on the endangered species list. #Senators #Coyotes
  • It’s the regular season, and of course, the Caps continue to display lots of O with Ovechkin and his pal Oshie. #Capitals #Avalanche
  • Sharks look suitably hungry after falling short in the finals last year; another stellar effort from their couple of Joes. #Sharks #Islanders
  • No Hall pass for dead Ducks in Jersey. #Devils #Ducks
  • Monahan leads Flames over the dark blue and tan. #Flames #Sabres
  • Pens spend a miserable night up north, while Canadiens are in love with new kid in town Radulov. #Canadiens #Penguins

MLB Playoffs Update, Recap and Perspectives: Tuesday, 10-18



MLB Playoffs Update (ALCS and NLCS):

  • With today’s bounce back win by the talented Jays, the Indians may be thinking more about Game 6 in Cleveland, what with the questionable merit of their inexperienced starter Meritt in Game 5. Toronto looks good at home and stays alive. #BlueJays #Indians
  • If there wasn’t a big hill to climb, it just wouldn’t be the Cubs. Rich has a wealth of success against the meat of the little bears’ lineup, leaving Chicago teetering on the brink of armageddon. It now falls on the tempermental Jon Lackey, along with the noticeably dormant Anthony Rizzo, to pick up some very serious slack. #Cubs #Dodgers
