The Couch Potato Report: NFL, PGA, MLB, VMAs, and More Fun with Acronyms

For weeks, writing this article was a challenge. The summer months brought little in the ways of big sporting events, making it difficult to hype up a lackluster docket of weekend TV each and every Friday. But now… problem solved.

The Couch Potato Report: Supersized Edition

Nobody likes a whiner. So I won’t start off this week’s “Couch Potato Report” whining about why there wasn’t a “C.P.R.” last week. I won’t tell you that my awkwardly big feet kicked the switch of my surge protector underneath my computer, powering down my PC and leaving my unsaved, nearly completed article left as […]

The Couch Potato Report: Sox, Softball, and Snooki

During the 2008 Presidential election, we heard both Barack Obama and John McCain use the rhetorical expression “you can’t put lipstick on a pig” multiple times as their respective campaigns waged on towards election day.

The Couch Potato Report: Manny, Monkeys, and More Vuvuzelas!

We’re down in the dumps. We’re beaten. We’re depressed.

[…]

Another sports-filled weekend is upon us, and of course, all eyes are focused on South Africa, where the world’s most popular sport takes center stage in the biggest tournament of them all, the World Cup.
