Tailgating season is in full swing.  Major League Baseball is going strong, NASCAR is revved up, and there are plenty of summer time music festivals to party in the parking lot.  Tailgating is a wonderful way to get the party going before you go into the stadium or concert venue, or in many cases – in place of going in.  It’s a time-honored tradition of outdoor hedonism, wherein people park their cars, open their trunks, and bask in their love of the game or rock and roll.  Here are a …

Why Drew Brees’ Consecutive Games Record is Overrated

Kudos to Brees on a terrific accomplishment
This isn’t an entire post dedicated to slamming Drew Brees or the Saints – he should be recognized for what he accomplished Sunday night in New Orleans. Breaking a record that’s more than 50 yrs old is an achievement no matter how you look at it.
48 straight games w/ a touchdown pass… Let that sink in for a minute – 3 full years of at least 1 TD in each game. Brees passes Johnny Unitas for the NFL record in most consecutive games with …

50 Olympic Events You Won’t See At London 2012

At the Olympics we’re looking forward to watching the 100 metres sprint, the cycling and the live pigeon shooting. What? There’s no live pigeon shooting? What do you mean there’s no live pigeon shooting?! This was the highlight of the Games in 1900, how could you possibly not include it this year!
We imagine that is how a meeting at the scheduling committee of the 1904 games might have gone. Though to be honest the live pigeon shooting probably wasn’t actually exciting, I mean it did have to compete with things …

Carlos Beltran: Is He Undergoing a Career Renaissance at Age 35?

Carlos Beltran signed with the 2011 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals this year, in part to replace power numbers on the team that Albert Pujols once provided. Tough shoes to fill, right? Absolutely, yet Beltran has managed to do it so far. While Pujols has struggled for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, his new team, Beltran has excelled in St. Louis so far, leading the league in homers as of press time and providing great numbers in batting average, RBIs and even the stolen base category.

Early 2012 NBA Playoff Storylines

While the 2011-2012 NBA Playoffs are still a few weeks away, the notable story lines are already shaping up well. The NBA season has been pretty good by all accounts, including that ofNBA Commissioner David Stern who said that the league was doing great this year on a Salt Lake radio show. I don’t believe the regular season will hold a candle to the playoffs however. We’ve already seen a few playoff-type games recently that demonstrate the intensity and type of play I think we’ll see once the playoffs commence.
