    A Breakdown of the Former NFLers Bull Rushing Houston Sports Radio Market

    When George Costanza was looking for a job, he said that he might like to be a color commentator for baseball to which Jerry Seinfeld responded, "Well, they tend to give those jobs to ex-ballplayers and people that are, you know, in broadcasting." While this may not have seemed fair to George, it is ... More >>

    Game Show Follies: Jeopardy Contestants Have No Clue On The Big Ten

    Of all the sports "things" that are set to debut this fall (a list which includes Jadeveon Clowney, the SEC Network, and A.J.

    What I Want In My Easter Basket

    In one of his stand-up routines, Jerry Seinfeld has a terrific bit on Halloween, in which he says the "only clear thought" he had in the first 10 years of his life was: "Get candy." Hmm.
