I don’t have sound on my computer but I can only assume R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” is playing in the background of this Kerwin Roach throwdown.  Check the video after the jump.  Good lord. Read the rest of this entry »


Remember that video of just about everyone in the state of Kentucky standing up and saying they were declaring for the NBA Draft in 2015?  You won’t see anything similar this year.  The NCAA Men’s 2015-2016 talent pool is lacking, and it’s apparent with the parity we’re seeing in college basketball right now.

Flight of the Conchords poked fun at their home country of New Zealand because of it’s relative obscurity. Always getting trumped by Australia, advertising big rocks, and boasting 4 TV channels are all Kiwi nuances according to the comedy duo. After I returned from a month-long stay in the south island, I got several people asking if English was the primary language (it is) and some who flat out forgot the name of the country. So the humor is not unfounded. The country is extremely small, and you only need to drive about 20 minutes in any direction to find a herd of sheep. But, a lot like the facile notions of American fatness and boorishness, all anybody needs to do is see a culture for themselves to find out that there is much more than meets the eye.

SB Trophy

This year will see the Super Bowl hit a 50 year milestone. This season is expected to be an epic one that should provide another great Super Bowl. As punters size up their NFL odds, we reflect on some of the greatest Super Bowl contests in history.

Unexpected dominance by the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Seattle Seahawks sheer dominance over a formidable Denver Broncos side. The Broncos were left embarrassed as the Seahawks romped to a 43-8 victory. Many pundits recall Denver not bringing their A team to the game as many of their key defensive players were out. Whether the Broncos would have won the game with their key players is another story. Many argue that the game would have been more tightly matched. Despite the opinions, game is remembered as one of the most one-sided contests in Super Bowl history. Read the rest of this entry »

Heavyweight boxing is all but a relic of past glory days. The eighties and nineties saw talent by the likes of Michael Spinks, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, Larry Holmes, and Buster Douglas that shook boxing arenas with roaring crowds and knockout spectacles. But the last decade and a half has seen a progressive freezing and thawing of the heavyweight division as the biggest draw in the sport of boxing.

Lloyd Christmas: You know, I don’t really recall. Starts with an S! Let’s see. Swim? Swammi? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson?
Harry Dunne: Maybe it’s on the briefcase.
Lloyd Christmas: Oh, yeah! It’s right here.
Lloyd Christmas: Samsonite! I was way off!

Dumb and Dumber.  That’s how I describe my first couple of articles about the Knicks’ Rookie Kristaps Porzingis.   Read the rest of this entry »

Holly Holm KO’d Ronda Rousey at 59 seconds of the second round at UFC 193 with a monster head kick. Holm dominated Rousey from the opening bell with fantastic boxing and ultimately kickboxing.  Holm’s victory is easily the greatest upset in MMA history.  To be honest, I thought she was going to be just another name to fall to Rousey.  But, she was completely dominant and fought the perfect fight.  Hats off.  Enjoy the KO.

I have a lot of fun pretending to be Rocky when I’m out for my runs. I cue the music in my head, and begin to huff and puff and throw feint left hooks with every other step. The colder it is outside the better to set the scene. It serves to make the run a bit less grueling, and adds some color to the monotony of training. But the montage ends when I enter the gym and step back into the ring. And in the back of my mind I believe it’s because sheer hard work gets the job done about as well as mowing the lawn with a pair of scissors. This is a sport that punishes going through the motions. You have to bring more than sheer brute strength to be victorious. Read the rest of this entry »


Godzingis. Porzin6is. Slim ‘Zingis. The Human Scarecrow. Whatever the youngbloods are calling Kristaps Porzingis nowadays, the Knicks’ rookie has impressed early this season.  The kid is a putback dunk machine.  Kristaps claimed another victim tonight when he threw down a putback slam on the entire country of Canada.  Check out the vine: Read the rest of this entry »
