Who Is The Athlete That You Go Out-Of-Your Way To Watch?

Brett Fah-ve-rah comes to mind for me. I don’t remember ever being a fan of the Green Bay Packers. Of the 70’s Packers only Chester Marcoal sticks in my craw. I had heard and read stories of the great Vince Lombardi. I loved seeing video clips of the famed ‘Frozen Tundra’ game. They play in […]

Team Name Game

Okay we’ve done this before. The rules have been modified ever so slightly. Now we play the game using the names of teams (professional and amateur).

Where it stops, the sports world never knows. So many topics to discuss. Where should we start?

The North Stars controlled the first half of play and […]

From NO EXCUSES by Charlie Weis and Vic Carucci

Something that is a little different. Thought I’d share some wisdom from Weis and get everyone’s take. Brief background – these events take place after Notre Dame’s loss to USC at South Bend. The game made infamous by Reggie Bush’s shoving of Matt Leinart into the end zone. Here goes. After addressing the media, then […]

Jr. Rhinos Win The Northern Ohio Cup!!!!

During Saturday’s team meeting Coach Rene Tadal told his players: “This is going to be a good weekend. This will be a good tournament for us.” Five games and two sets of penalty kicks later the Junior Rhinos made good on their coach’s promise. Amanda ‘AT’ Taylor clutched the final penalty kick attempt from the […]
