A reason to be mad about March Madness

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

This, right here, is my sad face. Naturally, you can't see it. Had I any idea how to make those cute faces most of you cooler, younger people know how to make with your colons, semicolons and commas, I would have offered it up. But I am neither cool nor young. So instead, you get that sentence. What's the cause for the long face, you ask? From Jason McIntyre at my most favorite-est sports blog in the whole, wide world (and who once was evennice enough to grant a budding chap like myself ... read more

The Super Bowl. Oh, the Super Bowl

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Because I've seen the word "historic" way too many times when describing NBC's attempt at streaming the Super Bowl (and because I rushed home to make sure I streamed the thing myself in hopes of possibly writing about it this week), we are going to revisit the year's biggest night in sports television a few days after the fact. Yes. I know it has been nearly a week now. And yes, I am fully aware that the New York Giants have even already marched the streets of New York during their championship parade. But ... read more

The Super Bowl is coming! The Super Bowl is coming!

Ahhhhh, the Super Bowl. It's a time when people who don't usually watch sports break down and try to pretend they know the difference between an interception and a touchdown.

And most of all, it's an event that proves as a showcase for some over-the-top halftime musical performance that almost ... read more

I love soccer (or, well, football. But if I used that particular terminology here, thoughts of the Redskins or Ravens would more than likely jump into your head, and that's not right). I played the sport all through my kid years, teen years and then (somewhat) college years. Before moving here, I even coached a soccer team that consisted of adorable 4- to 6-year olds (we finished the season 4-1-1, thank you). And last year's USMNT's World Cup run? Goodness. Each match wasn't just another reason to ... read more

Playoffs? Who said anything about playoffs?

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Wow. How did we get two months into this thing without ever touching on sports? Honestly, though. Sure, we all love our sitcoms, movies and music programming, but what about the NBA and NHL playoffs? Or how about the upcoming (probably locked-out) NFL season and the current MLB marathon? The NCAA lacrosse finals? Soccer's Champions League finals? Cricket? Golf? Tennis? Whatever odd, "this is actually a sport?" sport NBC airs on Sunday afternoons? Those are all valid questions, friends. The interesting ... read more
