Supreme Court Ruling on Gambling Prosperous for Pro Sports

(Editor’s note: this is an old-ass post I’ve long forgotten about. Oh well…) 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…

The World’s Quickest 2018 Major League Baseball Preview

The 2018 Major League Baseball is upon – like REALLY upon us given that the season will start this Thursday.  From my beloved New York Yankees being the modern-day Murderer’s Row to the loaded National League, this is shaping out to be an exciting year in baseball.

So instead of watching…
