Have you ever just had a really bad day at work and a fellow employee comes over to you and says one of those “it’s just one of those days, huh” types of comments and you just have to give a sly smile about it given the circumstances? Well ESPN cameras caught Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback Derek Anderson doing just that last night in the waning moments of an embarrassing loss to the 49ers on Monday Night Football. And when asked about the smile during a postgame press conference, Anderson made the unwise decision of going into defensive, freak out mode, cursing ...
I’ve always felt that as a gambler, you should always split any season into two parts just to keep things fresh. Whether you were the god or the goat of the first half of the season doesn’t matter, just remember there’s always tomorrow and always another line to lay your money on. So call it a rebirth, a reawakening, a resurrection or a rejuvenation—whatever floats your boat. Just look forward and continue to focus on the future.We’ve got some games sitting out there this Saturday that are just begging for some action.So, in the good spirit of all things holy, ...

By Danny Flynn On September - 30 - 2010
There are a lot of things I love about college football. I love the pageantry, I love the excitement, and I love the tradition. I love pretty much everything about the sport with very few exceptions. But if there’s one thing that I simply can’t stand, it's the double standards when it comes to shortchanging the players.It seems that in recent years we have seen far too many cases of players being screwed by the system and being hurt by silly technicalities while schools and athletic departments sit back and load their pockets with cash. The most recent case involves ...

Irvin, Deion, cocaine, hookers, Aikman, Jerry, ...
LT and AI. Two Monikers. Two Symbols. Two Dark Shadows. Lawrence Taylor and Allen Iverson are two men who have reached such a magnitude and infamy within their respective sports that they can be recognized simply by their initials. These are two men who have seen both the pinnacle and prodigal side of life. These are two larger-than-life athletes who faced more then their fair share of problems, vices, and demons along the way. The only difference between the two is timing. Lawrence Taylor has been there and done that. Twenty years ago he was living out the saga that Allen Iverson is ...
