I’ve updated the LSU-Tennessee Rivalry Blog. It’s interesting how LSU has dominated the series recently after it went the other way for 75 years.

 

The Tigers have historically had a more spirited rivalry with Tex...

Last Son of Krypton.....

Posted by Ark_Razor on November 18, 2017 at 3:20 AM Comments comments (10)

I have just received news that Nick, aka "Last Son of Krypton" has died. If true, he was about 30 and it was sudden. I'm trying to confirm. Devastating news for me as I had the pleasure of meeting him in Brandon, MB in 2012.

EDIT: I'm afraid it's true. He apparently died in his sleep.

Week 11: Who Else Quits?

Oh joy. Another week of... what? If Sgt. Bilko were still in the barracks he'd be running a pool on who quits this week. And on to our derisively short subject matter:



[email protected]: The Titans don't inspire faith. The Steelers are fake. But they're at home, where the officials wear black and gold underwear.


[email protected]: Two teams that look like they're trying. Detroit's better and maybe even trying harder.


[email protected]: Wouldn't ...

Goodbye to an Icon of the Greatest Generation

He was and remains a testament to the inadequacy of statistics. To see them, one would wonder (and some, believe it or not, actually have) why he's in the Hall. In his 14-year baseball career, interrupted a year by World War II, he only hit over .300 three times. He never won a batting title nor an RBI title. He never won a Gold Glove (they didn't exist between 1937 and 1951).


Yet over that career Bobby Doerr managed to bat .288. His average RBI total, normalize...

This is going to be long, because parts of this I meant to post midweek last week, and I forgot. I’ll make subheadings so it’s not a long ramble.

The NFL's Trouble Barometer

Posted by Radatz on November 14, 2017 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (13)


Think the NFL isn't in trouble? Think the hype and soft-pedaling by their media outlets is the truth? Think their pandering to players has solved a problem?


I didn't have much of a gauge myself until last night as I watched the awful Miami Dolphins put in about a quarter's worth of work in Carolina. It wasn't the awful product on the field, watching a game in which yet another team packed it in at midseason, that gave me the idea.

Week 10: Three Clinics Amid the Fire Drills

Well, well... an eventful week in the football part of football, most of it full of incredible lowlights. We had two touchdownbacks, crucial giveaways... amazing stuff. We had some pretender unmaskings. We crowned the worst team in football... and despite their being the only winless team left, it wasn't the Browns.


How bad were things? Exactly three teams looked impressive. They were:

1. New England --- dissected what once was the 'best defense in the leag...
