Supreme Court Ruling on Gambling Prosperous for Pro Sports

This is a day I thought would NEVER happen.  EVER. When I saw that the Supreme Court ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) was unconstitutional, I immediately assumed that the sports leagues would be panicking like crazy.  After reading more about it, I think those leagues should be embracing…

The World’s Quickest 2018 NBA Playoff Preview: Conference Finals

After an exciting opening round, the second round was a little more, let’s say, SHORT. Three of the four conference semifinals ending in “gentlemen sweeps” (five games). The other series? A four game sweep by the Cavaliers over the Baby Dinosaurs (which got a coach fired). Will the conference finals bring back the excitement? After…

What Should the Future Hold for the Toronto Raptors?

I meant to write this rant the evening of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ sweep of the Toronto Raptors. In fact, I was so disgusted with the Baby Dinosaurs I was ready to write those jokers off altogether. Then I slept on it. I started to take a deeper analysis into what Toronto has going on as…

The World’s Quickest (and Latest) 2018 NBA Playoff Preview: 2nd Round

These NBA Playoffs have gotten off to such an exciting start!  With the exception of the Pelicans’ sweep of the Trail Blazers, the first round was “must-see TV”.  Even those 5-game “gentlemen sweeps” were captivating! Now, let’s see if the conference semifinals will bring us the same level of excitement.  The matchups are pretty tantalizing,…

Mayfield and Jackson: Best QB Picks in First Round

Now before y’all go off on me for an perceived use of hyperbole, understand something. ALL of the top five QBs in this draft are flawed — some could argue VERY flawed. Baker Mayfield’s hot-headedness and off the field issues. Sam Darnold being a turnover machine. Josh Allen’s lack of accuracy and performance in a…

Josh Allen: a Bust in the Making

Before I get into this rant, let me make one thing clear. I am not one for picking on college kids. I am also not one for hoping they fail, particularly at the NFL level. In short, I want to see all these kids do well on the next level while making their NFL dreams…
