We roll into Week 10 of the NFL with a rather large, purple elephant in the room. See him? Yep. I see him, too. That purple elephant in the corner, near the old Piñatas, the one banging on the snare drum and smashing those mini symbols attached to […]
Rick Suter—the guy watching Tom Hanks finally(!) get out of that damn airport terminal—is a Los Angeles-based writer and other stuff that doesn’t sound as cool but pays the rent. An entertaining sort of guy...even though that claim is being written by Rick in the third person. He has written columns for Bleacher Report, Faniq.com and Fox Sports (when their blog-o-shpere existed!). He has co-written a book—Rick Dempsey's Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball. The guy loves pizza.
There is a Foot Locker commercial, too...somewhere.
Welcome to football in November, gang! For you Chicago Cubs fans out there, I extend a congratulations to you, your family, and the incredible 2016 Cubs team—from the top, down to the last reliever, to the guy who is probably just going to bed, er, sleeping on the […]

Well, hello there, Week 8. It’s crazy but you’re the halfway point of the NFL season—kind of—the benchmark for when we as enthusiasts can really start to dissect and understand what the hell is happening from division to division, team to team, Tom Brady to Fozzy Whittaker, Frostee […]
When Ben Affleck stood on that stage several years ago, in front of seemingly bored millionaires and seat warmers, he was humble. He held a shiny statue in his hand, his voice determined and sincere he spoke about what a ride it had been…from the days of Good […]
The similarities are uncanny… While the hit Netflix show Stranger Things has the world wondering What happened to Barb?, the NFL community of watchers and opinion-makers can find similar confusion with the Carolina Panthers, creating hypothetical analogies about a very lost Cam Newton. Perhaps he is in the […]
The world’s oldest plumber turned 92 this week, and like Keith Richards or Betty White, you have to applaud the gusto toward such perseverance and consistency in this day’s job market—but, Canada’s finest, Lorne Figley, the aforementioned Warren Buffet of the Thinking Man’s Throne, the Pied Piper Cleaner […]
The little boy grabs his bat and strolls up to the plate — which could be a Frisbee or a piece of wood, or maybe it’s just a bare spot in the grass where the doghouse used to be (he misses Buster, but that dog loved UPS trucks more than […]
Before we string up the paper-mache donkey for another swing at the unknown, the herculean cuts in the name of what teams will be in Houston in February for the Super Bowl alongside Lady Gaga and her…stuff—let’s give credit, where credit is due. It’s been 67 years since […]
So Tom Brady was getting some sunshine on his ass this past week, while also frolicking on a boat with Giselle and what looked to be a stand-in from The Leftovers. It was an atypical moment, one that most likely conjured specific recollections about the time you were […]
