Praying to St. Aaron

Losing Aaron Rodgers put the Green Bay Packers in the position of not making the playoffs for the first time in… a long time. Brett Hundley turned the team into the Cardiac Pack. Engineering a couple of come back wins in overtime and almost taking down the mighty Steelers. But he isn’t the answer at […]

Baby Badgers Making Progess Growing Up

After years of college basketball success in the Big Ten and the NCAA tournament, the Wisconsin Badgers are experiencing growing pains. Gone are four of the five starters from a team that could have won it all. They have finished in the top four of the Big Ten for something like 14 years straight-formerly unheard […]

Little Love For the Wisconsin Badgers

Being a lifelong Badger fan, I feel sad for the Badger football team. The experts downplay their season because they “haven’t beaten a good team”. They are pretty much handing the Big Ten Championship to OhioState. Of course they are. OSU always have one of the top recruiting classes with several top 300 high school […]

Close but no cigar for Green Bay

After Aaron Rogers went down with a shoulder injury, the Green Bay Packers turned to his protege, Brett Hundley. Anyone could’ve played as well as he did for 4 games. That ended, hopefully,Sunday night against the Steeler. Yes they lost and yes it lessened their playoff hopes, but Hundley showed some glimpses of Aaron and […]

Manny Pacquiao KO’d – By Judges

Last Saturday’s WBO welterweight title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn reaffirmed my decision to stop watching boxing matches since Muhammed Ali unlaced his gloves for the last time. Pacquiao won that fight. The old man landed many more quality punches and had Horn on the ropes in the ninth round. Even the referee […]

Anthony Rizzo: The New Prototype Leadoff Man?

Anthony Rizzo is not the old school type leadoff man. Doesn’t need to be. He’s not the little scrappy guy who’s always a threat to steal a base or two and who can exhibit a little HR power. He can,however work the count, get on base as well as knock the stuffing out of the […]

Please stop the bleeding!

Praying that the Warriors put an end to the NBA season tonight. Why 3 days between games anyway? Put the Cavs out of their misery tonight please KD.

Predators are the Prey

It’s still hard for me to envision hockey in the south. Although not a great NHL fan, I was hoping the Predators would hoist the Cup. They would’ve if they didn’t have to play in Pittsburgh.

Stick a Fork In the Cavs

Before the championship series between the Warriors and Cavaliers, I predicted the Warriors in six games. After watching the first two, I see a broom on the horizon. Maybe the Cavs could win one at home, but they look seriously over matched.

Three’s A Charm?

It’s the rubber championship match between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers starting Thursday June 1. My pick is the Warriors in 6 games. I don’t think the Cavs have enough to win more than 2 games. My hope is that we see two different teams next year. A fourth installment of this […]
