Thank baby Jesus Patriots Rob Gronkowski didn’t get the 2013 Madden cover. Instead it was Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson – sorry Detroit fans, looks like you’re going to have to bring back the paper bags.
Though an honor, we all know what getting the coveted spot on one of sports fans most beloved video games entails – death Injuries. Thus, this Wheaties Box type accomplishment has been dubbed THE MADDEN CURSE. Continue Reading
Pomp and circumstance today as the Boston Red Sox take on Tampa Bay at Fenway Park for the stadiums 101st season. Hopefully the 1-5 Red Sox can pull off a win today amidst the celebration and give us Boston fans something to really cheer for.
As a Red Sox fan I’m trying to stay optimistic.
Do one thing everyday that scares you – Eleanor Roosevelt
“I quit school in the sixth grade because of pneumonia. Not because I had it, but because I couldn’t spell it.”
I realize that I haven’t written for the past couple days about sports. Truthfully I’ve been avoiding all sports channels and websites like Michael Vick avoiding dogs. Doing so has been rough.
As most of you know I’m a diehard all things Boston fan. Obviously the Superbowl hurt my heart; a lot. My mother who knows nothing about sports, bless her heart, called me right after the game saying sorry for my loss. Ya that didn’t help much. Anyways with that heartache I decided to take a break for a few days from writing about and watching sports. With this being only the third day in that break, its been rougher than I thought it would. Here’s how my past few days have gone so far. Continue Reading

What do you get when you get when you mix the UC Santa Cruz Mascot and the Planters peanut man? – Victor Cruz’s logo on his Young Whale line.
Victor Cruz of the New York Giants has a new clothing line he’s been working on called Young Whale, not like the sea creature, but whale as in the poker term defined as a gambler or poker player of enormous wealth for whom big losses are not important (ya never heard that term either).
Like most athletes, Cruz has supposedly always really been into fashion:
“I love it,” Cruz says. “I’ve always wanted to be involved in fashion and have my own clothing line and do some things like that. And now that I’m able to have one, it’s amazing.”
Well good luck with that Mr. Cruz. Good thing your football skills aren’t as terrible as your fashion line; because then the Patriots would definitely have an easy win this Sunday.

A Playoff Beard is the practice of an athlete not shaving his (I suppose could be her’s too…) beard during playoff season. The athlete is only allowed to shave once the team: Continue Reading
Ulcers and nightmares have been plaguing me for the past week in regards to Superbowl XLVI – though I did have one good dream in which I played for the Pats and had more yards than Ochocinco has had the entire season (but I guess that isn’t saying much).
Anyways, with the Superbowl only a couple days away, I’ve realized I needed to take my mind off of all the excitement surrounding it. What else better to write about than my first love, Basketball.
With the Celtics having an up and down season (thank god I’ve had the Bruins and Patriots to preoccupy me) I’ve been watching how the other former/present power house teams have been doing such as the Heat.
Watching a Heat game, more specifically Lebron James can usually be summed up in 3 ways: Continue Reading
Tom Brady vs. Eli Manning.
Yes I’m aware it’s not another typical picture of Tom and Eli in their team uniforms throwing a ball or doing the “YAA” face (you know the one when they just scored a touchdown and they’re screaming?). Anyways, with ladies as lovely as theirs how could you blame me?
But back to the topic at hand: Brady vs. Manning.
Superbowl XLVI will definitely be the turning point for these two men’s careers.
Brady, who has already cemented his place in Canton with his remarkable record breaking career which includes MVP awards and Superbowls (plural), can make up for his *ahem* unfortunate loss to none other than Eli Manning in Superbowl XLII. Though I think the loss was due to David Tyree using some kind of, as Chowdaheadz said, Harry Potter magic to catch that pass with his forehead. Regardless, Brady Continue Reading
