Sprinting to a Massive Payoff

I don’t mean to keep coming back to the Olympics when the football season is getting near, but there just keeps being interesting topics to consider. I promise I won’t talk about it anymore by next week. Anyway, I want to take a few minutes to talk about the sprints. The Americans have mostly been […]

Random Thoughts on a Thursday Night

I wrote a couple of days ago that I thought that betting on the 200m world record being broken at +200 was an attractive bet. Even though I had obviously thought about it happening, and even thought it could happen, I was amazed how thrilling it was to actually see it happen. Usain Bolt is […]

Back to Football

It’s time to move on from the Olympics and get back into what matters – football. We’ll find lots of different ways to look at things in the coming weeks, but to ease back into it lets take a quick survey of some of the interesting stories out there concerning the most over-watched and over-hyped […]

It’s Finally Over!!!

I actually don’t believe that headline, but at least we have taken a giant step forward. In the last few minutes the news has broken that Brett Favre has been traded to the Jets. We will have to endure a few more days of drama as we hear how he feels about the move, as […]

Two Things Catching My Eye

Two things are catching my eye as I glance at the sports news today: The Olympics are now only three days away. I will be writing extensively about how to get some action down on them as they go on. For now, though, the biggest story is obviously the basketball – the Redeem Team. My […]

Hall of Fame Observations

Starting off the NFL season with a winning bet did little to change my mind about the Hall of Fame game – it was still a ridiculous, glorified practice that taught us little about the two teams. Things went pretty much as expected – Jim Zorn looked keen and eager to please, while Tony Dungy […]
