The epidemic of smiling in the NCAA must be stopped!
These kids are out of control!
The NCAA needs ban smiling. Each game I watch I see more and more guys taunting each other and the fans by showing off their teeth in this disrespectful expression of joy. It needs to be gone. I mean seriously, nothing grinds my gears more than a guy smiling at me just after he has just scored on my team. A guy who feels the need to show me just how happy he is to h...
The Final 2010 Back Porch Podcast!
Well it has been a crazy year in the world of sports. LeBron James went from good to bad, a Heisman trophy was returned, Brett Favre auditioned for Playgirl, and of course, we learned Tiger Woods may in fact be human after all.

It is all about how you finish - NFL Fallout
Thought #1 - Trickling out

Sunday Morning Coming Down: The X-Mas Afterparty and NFL questions
Ah, December 26th. For some it is extremely depressing as they stare at another Christmas in the rear view. For others it is a feeling similar to the post race relief a marathon runner experiences, just as sweaty, but minus the awkwardly short shorts.

Whatever your take on today is I hope yesterday left you with at least one good memory and at least one story which will seem way funnier in a few...
