“To Pimp a Butterfly” Album of the Year Worthy?

Rather reluctant to admit that when To Pimp a Butterfly was released you couldn’t get me within a foot of the Grammy nominated album. I’m an old school Kendrick fan who’s been hopelessly stuck on Section 80 since it’s release in July 2011. Upon TPAB’s debut, the internet was flooded with a slew of negative […]

The Madness of NBA Free Agency, Impending Cap-A-Palooza and the Spurs Skip A Rebuild

Iman Shumpert is worth $40 million, Demare Carroll netted $20 million more bills than that, and even Al-Farouq Aminu will cost a franchise (the Portland Trail Blazers) $30 million big ones in the open market.

2014 NFL Predictions: NFC East

The NFC East is no longer the beast of the NFL it once was. The Giants, Cowboys, and Redskins are shadows of their former selves, but the Eagles appear in the midst of a resurgence under the tutelage of offensive-guru Chip Kelly. None of the teams in the division on the surface appear to have […]

World Series Preview: Cardinals-Red Sox

It’s World Series time folks. Every year brings the promise of an epic, seven game series that could result in an era-defining moment. Both teams have had such moments recently. David Freese’s monster World Series that brought the trophy to St. Louis, and the BoSox ending the “Curse of Bambino” will forever be entrenched in […]

Alex Ferguson: My AutoBiography

There is no doubting Sir Alex Ferguson is the greatest football manager ever. However, is his book the greatest sports biography ever? Back home overseas the book has already dropped, but in the states we have to wait until October 24th to get our hands on it. From the excerpts I have read on other […]

Government Shutdown Could Halt Sports Too

It appears the government shutdown has even extended to the realm of sports.

An Ode to Banker's Club

Throughout the years I have grown particularly fond of one really cheap kind of alcohol. That alcohol is Banker’s Club. Yesterday, amidst the Mexico-USA Game and poker I sipped on one of my favorite mixed drinks, Banker’s Club Vodka and Orange Juice. I am often asked why Banker’s Club? It tastes like rubbing alcohol they […]
