Bo Jackson: Greatest Dual Sports Athlete Ever

Now, he’s the most entertaining star of television’s Heisman House football commercials. But, back then in the late 80’s, this fabulous football and baseball player was all the rage. Because of his exploits, many sports fans regard him as the … Continue reading

NFL Week 1: Already “Wait Til Next Year” for Some Fans

NFL Week 1 officially kicked off this weekend, and for some football fans like me, it’s already time to start singing “wait til next year.”

That’s because like last year and the year before and even the year before that, I foolishly fell into the same trap.

As a “famished” NFL fan, I’m desperately hungry to root for a winner.

TB Bucs Foolish to Sign Richie Incognito

The newly transformed Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be foolish to sign NFL free agent Richie Incognito.

With respected new coach Lovie Smith, proven new General Manager Jason Licht and colorful new uniforms for its upcoming 2014 campaign, the metamorphosed Tampa Bay franchise would quickly mire itself in old ways by signing the disgraced former Miami Dolphins lineman.

The new look Bucs should be seeking every conceivable way to jettison every vestige of its ugly past off its metaphoric pirate ship.

Tampa Bay Sports Fans Don’t Deserve Better

In covering yesterday’s surprise Tampa Bay Rays’ trading ace David Price to the Detroit Tigers, USA Today Sports’ MLB writer Mark Whicker reported this morning that Tampa Bay fans deserve better.

Really, Mark? The Tampa Bay Rays players may deserve better, but Tampa Bay area sports fans?

Are you serious? Before making such a bold claim, did you take the time to check out the pathetic attendance figures involving Tampa Bay area sports teams?

NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp is No Boy!

NFL Hall of Fame inductee Warren Sapp is not a boy.

However, he’s certainly not a man either.

I think we can all agree that big ol’ 99 is a big baby, a spoiled child, a disgruntled brat, an opinionated lout and a washed up former NFL star whose behavior has grown tiresome.

Earlier this week the big fella proved just how small minded he’s become.

Al Lang Stadium: Tampa Bay Sports Fans Deserve Better

Tampa Bay area sports fans deserve better.

Oft maligned over the years as a second rate sports town for its inferior sports venues, the Tampa Bay area has struck again with the soccer pitch its North American Soccer League franchise calls home.

And, it’s not the fans’ fault.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers New Logo Not Enough Change

Yesterday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled a new logo design for the struggling NFL franchise.

Like me, most fans immediately thought that the Bucs’ new look pretty much resembled the old one.

Upon closer inspection, Buccaneer fans will note a few minor changes. The pirate flag on the pewter helmets is bigger. The skeleton’s eye sockets appear larger. And, the rich red color is now even more vibrant.

Former NFL DT Warren Sapp Slams ABC Morning Co-host Michael Strahan

Yesterday, the big fella proved just how small minded he’s become.

NFL fans have always known Hall of Fame DT Warren Sapp is a bully.

However, few were aware of just how petty the retired #99 has become until Sapp inexplicably rekindled a longtime personal feud with former NY Giants DE Michael Strahan.

Sapp senselessly slammed the Good Morning America Co-host in the media. Sapp’s cheap shot reminded NFL fans how he unnecessarily administered a needless, blind sided hit on Green Bay Packers’ OT Chad Clifton back in his playing days.
