Washington, DC - May 2, 2009
One period is all it took to show just how amazing the talent and skills of the mega superstars are, in the Washington Capitals-Pittsburgh Penguins series are.
However, one period was simply not enough. We thirsted for more, and good god did we ever get it.
I guarantee you no matter how [...]

His name does not have the cache or ring to it that George Steinbrenner has. He is completely the opposite of Al Davis, to say that he actually is in touch with the reality of his sport. He is far from Jerry Jones, he actually allows his team to be run with a real general [...]

What a shame that so many Americans have not fallen in love with the NHL in massive quantities, like we do for the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball.

“Welcome to the Buff” by Chris Russell
As a proud graduate of Buffalo State College, having spent almost 8 full years of my life in the city of good neighbors as they like to call it – I feel I am more then capable of serving as the un-official welcome committee chair for Terrell Owens, [...]

So many thoughts on a busy sports weekend as the calendar turns from February to March. I just can’t focus on one particular item, so I’ll let it rip “Russell Mania” style.
You know free agency has started when the Redskins or the Raiders start throwing around gobs of money like it’s growing off a [...]

It was 5:05 PM ET, on Sunday September 28th, 2008 when the dread of another September collapse, and more importantly – the collapse of a piece of New York and baseball history came to a bitter end.
Shea Stadium opened on April 17th, 1964 – and after months of piece-by-piece destruction, the big round ‘dump’ as [...]
