New-Look Celtics Shut Out of Final Six Minutes; Lose in Denver

When asked about the many trades the Boston Celtics made right before Thursday’s 3 pm trade deadline, many of the players said they were shocked. Thursday night in Denver, they played like it, too. The Boston Celtics did not score in the final six minutes of the fourth quarter, allowing the Denver Nuggets to go […]

Chris Johnson Signs 10-Day Contract With Celtics

After the Celtics made three trades at the deadline, dealing Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Thunder, Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to the Cavs, and the injured Marquis Daniels to the Kings. They were left with just eight players against the Denver Nuggets for a game Thursday night. As a result, Danny Ainge […]

Why Randy Won’t Be Handy

At first glance, Randy Moss going to the Titans seems like a good outcome for the wayward wide receiver. Tennessee is 5-3, half a game out of both the wildcard and the AFC South, with two games left against the Colts. They have a good coach in Jeff Fisher, who makes smart decisions on the […]

With Week 1 of the NFL in the books, you and your fantasy team are in one of two situations.

AFC South Fantasy Preview

The next stop on the fantasy preview train brings us to the AFC South. This division has some of the best top shelf talent of them all, featuring one of the top 3 fantasy QBs in Peyton Manning, two of the top 4 fantasy RBs in Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew, two of the top […]

Pierce’s Buzzer-Beater Has Celtics Thinking Sweep

Paul Pierce scored 32 points, including a buzzer-beating 21-foot jumper, helping the Boston Celtics defeat the Miami Heat 100-98 at America Airlines Arena in Miami on Friday night. Through the first three quarters of the game, it was a familiar re-run episode of Celtics vs. Heat. Boston’s “Big Three” and Rajon Rondo, all in double-figures, […]

Patriots Close to Signing TE Crumpler

Multiple league sources have reported that veteran tight end Alge Crumpler has informed the Tennessee Titans (his former employer) that he has agreed to terms with the New England Patriots. Crumpler, 32, is expected to ink an official deal with the Patriots later this week. The Patriots released free agent Benjamin Watson, who signed with […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2010

With the conclusion of the 2009 season, it is time to start looking ahead to the future. Although it may be too early to accurately project what the first round of the draft will be next season, it is still fun to think about. I have gotten into the habit of making my prediction for […]

Be a Titans Fan For a Day!

Let’s be frank.  The New England Patriots had their chance to stop the Colts from making a run at its record 21 straight regular season wins.  They blew it.  Since then, The Colts struggled against the Ravens and, thanks to Ed Reed’s stupidity, squeaked away with a win.  Then they appeared to be getting blown […]

Rajon Rondo Wants to Race Chris Johnson

It seems that Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo wants to start a new tradition in December besides singing carols, roasting chestnuts, and playing Christmas Day games: challenging star athletes to 40-yard foot-races for cash. Last December, it was Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter who set world record after world record at the 2008 Summer […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 12

In one of my leagues, I have lost two straight weeks. Normally, I wouldn’t dwell on it, but in both losses, I have lost only because I made a last minute roster move. Every Sunday, I make a frantic re-arrangement of my roster before the first kickoff. Two weeks ago, if I had played WR […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 10

All week long I was told that Ladell Betts was questionable for Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, and even if he did play, he would be in a committee. So, I benched him. Instead, he rushed for 114 yds and a TD. If I had played him, I would have won my matchup. Oh, […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 8

I think it is time that we made it official. Next season, nobody should draft LaDainian Tomlinson in the first round. I know, I know, he used to be a great back and was fantasy football’s most dominant player. I myself never had the pleasure of having LT on any of my football teams, and […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 5

I just watched “Little Giants” on television the other day. I also watched Monday Night Football last night and saw the semi-resurgence of Jets WR Braylon Edwards. It just made me think that Edwards is like the Little Giants WR “Hot Hands” Hanon, the WR who constantly dropped passes. Maybe Edwards learned to catch the […]
