Thoughts on Day One of 2017 NFL Draft…

The Bears don’t know what the hell they are doing.  Sigh, where do I begin?   First of all, the Bears already signed a QB (albeit a scrub) to theee years, and $45 million — $18 million guaranteed.  Then, after realizing “what the f$&k, we gave a scrubby QB $18 mil guaranteed?!”, wanted a QB…

Myles Garrett Is Top Pick by Default

In two nights we sports fans will be glued to our TVs, computers and smartphones.   Not the NBA playoffs (as exciting as it is), not baseball, and we can’t even find the NHL playoffs on TV (damn Gary Bettman).  It’s the NFL Draft, baby.  Every year we get to pontificate over several things heading…

The Reason I Love the Steelers: Dan Rooney

There are a few professional sports franchises that have a one-name association with them. New York Giants: Mara.  New York Yankees: Steinbrenner.  Oakland Raiders: Davis.  Los Angeles Lakers: Showtime.  Dallas Cowboys: “Jerry-world”.

Tony Romo = Danny White

Las Vegas Raiders: it Just Fits

There are partnerships that are considered to be the most successful in American history.  Laurel and Hardy.  Peaches and Herb.  Amos and Andy.  Sanford and Son.  Cookies and cream.  Afro and Sheen.  And what better partnership to add to the list than Las Vegas and Raiders? The NFL made the move official earlier today, voting…

Tony Romo Should Sign with the Texans

I didn’t think that good ‘ol Jerry Jones had the stones to break off Tony Romo.  I could have sworn that Jerrah would stubbornly stick by a player whom many would say is like a second son to Jones.   Nevertheless, it looks like that the owner/general manager/cat daddy of the Dallas Cowboys had finally…
