    LeBron James to Exit Miami Contract (The Decision II)

    Weren't we just here yesterday? Man, four years went by fast. When comparing the Cleveland 2010 and Miami 2014 situations for LeBron James, many qualitative doppelgängers are in place -- Post season run ending in a soul crushing fashion? Check.

    Rockets' "Meaningless" Finale Wasn't Meaningless For Gamblers

    I've said many times, we need a special corner of the sports media world for gamblers. A special channel, a special talk radio show, a special Tweetdeck. All of it. People who don't wager generally don't care about the same nuances of a sporting event as people that do. That much was obvious on th ... More >>

    Zapruder Analysis Of Richie Incognito's Interview With FOX's Jay Glazer

    It's been quite a year for the NFL, and I'm not talking about on the field. Off the field, the soap opera has been depressingly interesting (or interestingly depressing, depending on how you look at it).

    Zapruder Analysis Of This Delightfully Awkward Interview With Tiger Woods

    One thing I've learned in my five years or so of doing radio is that very few (stress VERY) athletes enjoy doing interviews. Most barely tolerate the process and treat it like it's a nuisance, something that's just part of the deal when you sign on the dotted line for seven figures. So when you see ... More >>

    Astros Media Day Kicks Off 2012 Season -- 5 Early Storylines

    In sandlot football growing up, we always had a saying after touchdowns that "losers walk," meaning the team that scored stays at that end of he field to kick off and the "losers" on defense have to march to the other end of the field to receive. So it's probably appropriate that, due to the NBA c ... More >>
