SoB NBA Eastern Conference Power Rankings: Thanksgiving Edition

After watching the Boston Celtics struggle through the initial part of the 2012-13 NBA season, I made the executive decision that doing a full NBA Power Rankings was too depressing.

NBA Power Rankings: The Almighty to Unsightly Edition

So far, things have not exactly gone as planned in the NBA season.

Just in time for the celebration of the birth of the Son of God, the crazy improbability of Week 15 in the NFL arrived. A number of teams kept their improbable playoff hopes alive, the Colts managed to win, and the Packers found a way to lose. Did the Colts and Packers hold onto their […]

Power Rankings 3.0 – The Push for the Playoffs

It’s hard to believe, but the NFL regular season is dwindling.  We are already 3/4th of the way done and now teams will be jockeying for a playoff spot.  The best part, there are many teams still in the running.  The Saints and Colts have punched their tickets to the postseason, now 22 teams will […]
