    College and Pro Football: This Weekend's Best Bets

    If you followed my picks last season (and God forbid, used them as your own picks), then you know exactly how painful the hit was by the end of the year. In fact, you're probably cursing me and contemplating exactly how you can dismember me without getting arrested while you stand in the welfare lin ... More >>

    Three Years Later, Did The Texans Win Or Lose The 2011 NFL Draft?

    The Shiloh Keo Era ended earlier this week. I think most of us could see that coming, what with Keo only being healthy for like one day this entire 2014 preseason and regular season. (To be fair, it was a very productive day, as he had 11 tackles in the final preseason game to temporarily save his s ... More >>

    Two days away from the start of the NFL season, and I'm getting all my ducks in a row for kickoff Thursday night. I have the Texans schedule loaded in my calendar so I know exactly how many Sundays I'll have to watch a total menu of other teams' games during the season. (Total? Three. October 12 af ... More >>

    NBA Playoffs Weekend in Viral Video Form

    Flopping Is Probably One of the Greatest Sports Sins of Them All

    I got into a semi-argument on air with my SportsRadio 610 cohost Ted Johnson the other day. The tiff was about Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman, and his act in the wake of the NFC Title Game on FOX, when he eviscerated Michael Crabtree in an interview with Erin Andrews and turned a "WE" moment into a ...

    Twitter Wars: Richard Sherman Takes On The World

    It was a polarizing moment, maybe the most polarizing moment of the NFL season (not involving Richie Incognito talking about running a train on one of Jonathan Martin's female relatives), but I loved Richard Sherman's promo that he cut on Michael Crabtree after the NFC Title Game in Seattle. It was ... More >>

    Super Snooze: "Best Matchup in Years" Turns Into Boring Route

    I know that players on the winning team are elated when the final seconds tick off the clock in a championship game. But is there anything more anti-climactic than confetti raining down on players who knew the outcome of the game for more than a full quarter? As excited as they must be to win, I hav ... More >>

    Super Bowl XLVIII: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

    It all started with a safety on a snap over Peyton Manning's head on the first play from scrimmage, the nail was driven in further by a Malcolm Smith pick six to close out the first half, and Percy Harvin hit the death blow with the kickoff return for a touchdown to open the second half. Game, set, ... More >>

    BATTLE-DRINK, SUPER BOWL: Manning, Sherman, and Weed! OH MY!

    Well, it finally happened! After a week's worth of exhaustively discussing the Seahawks depth on defense, Peyton Manning's wobbly spirals, and Marshawn Lynch's reluctance to use his words, we finally got a nice, juicy hooker story to spice up Super Bowl week! Granted, no NFL players were involved ... More >>

    Super Bowl XLVIII: Hype Week Is A Popcorn Fart, Somebody Do Something

    We are generally an impatient people. As soon as the AFC and NFC title games are over, most of us would like to see the Super Bowl played the following week because, quite frankly football is a drug and one week without it starts causing withdrawal symptoms. The Pro Bowl doesn't satisfy the jones ( ... More >>

    10 Silly Predictions For Sunday's Grammy Awards

    This Sunday the music business will celebrate its equivalent of Oscar night when the 56th annual Grammy Awards are handed out at L.A.'s Staples Center. Basically it combines two high-school traditions, the prom and the talent show, but the Grammys are always worth watching -- if nothing else, the ou ... More >>

    Why Richard Sherman Is Awesome

    For an AFC and NFC Title Game weekend that I compared to Wrestlemania 3, the ending was entirely appropriate. No, I'm not talking about Peyton Manning's (at the very least) evening the score and perhaps surpassing (certainly, giving himself a chance to surpass) Tom Brady in the "greatest of our gen ...

    6 Antiquated Objections to Mayor Parker's Marriage (and Same-Sex Marriage in General) on Social Media

    As recently as 25 years ago, an openly gay mayor would have seemed inconceivable to most people in Houston. A lot can change and we are now in the third term of Mayor Annise Parker, the only openly gay mayor in America. Last week, it was announced Parker and her longtime partner, Kathy Hubbard, were ...

    In between not one but two live NFL games on Sunday night and one cross-country flight on Monday, I had plenty of time these last couple of days to think about the current state of the Houston Texans. And as they sit amid the charred, barely recyclable remnants of what was, at one time, viable Supe ... More >>

    The beauty and tragedy of sports comes in transcendent, "Where were you?" moments. I remember the apartment and spot on the couch in December 2011 where I watched T.J.
