    Fan Fighting League! Red River Shootout Edition

    In the pantheon of college football rivalries, few have the combination of tradition and bitter hatred of the Red River Shootout between Oklahoma and Texas. (NOTE: I refuse to call it by the more politically correct Red River Rivalry, as if somehow including the word Shootout means that the irresp ... More >>

    Battle-Drink, NFL Draft 2014: The Johnny Manziel Era Begins

    Pretty much everyone that I interact with on a daily basis loves the NFL. I work at a sports talk radio station that is the flagship for the local NFL team.

    Movie Review of Draft Day (Featuring Texans RB Arian Foster)

    The NFL Draft has grown into a monster business. There are literally hundreds of websites, pundits, and magazines making money hand over fist on the (intelligent sounding, but in the end largely random) speculation on which teams will draft which college kids. Smoke, mirrors, and the Wonderlic, bab ... More >>

    NFL Draft 2014: Nolan Nawrocki's Annual "Character" Salvo Hits Johnny Manziel

    There are parts of the NFL Draft process that can be a lot of fun. The chess game between front offices, the study and analysis of game film, and the leaks of really horrible Wonderlic scores at the combine -- I love those things! Then there's the overanalysis, the portion of the player study that ... More >>

    Former Fat Quarterback Jared Lorenzen Is Now Even Fatter (And Still Playing Quarterback!)

    I have great respect for people whose physical shape (shape meaning both "condition" as well as literally their shape -- oval, circle, pear, etc.) belies their athletic performance.

    Vince Young's Money: Where It All Went

    In addition to carving out a flash-in-the-pan NFL career, former Longhorn QB Vince Young has apparently burned through cash like a heavyweight boxer on a binge.

    Things keep getting worse for Vince Young. An application he filed in Harris County court was denied today amid questions of why it was ever brought in the first place.

    A week or so ago, you may remember, I wrote a post about the auction for Bobby Petrino's crash-damaged motorcycle.
