On The Attack – The Seattle Seahawks And Green Bay Packers Set To Clash With Opposing Styles

The Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers concluded the preseason in divergent manners. The Seahawks, previously a well-oiled monster truck, stumbled and bumbled their way through a head-scratching loss to the lowly regarded Oakland Raiders. In contrast, the Packers ended their preseason schedule with a thorough whipping of the Kansas City Chiefs, a playoff […]

Marcus Mariota

Paging Dr. Mariota

No matter how the Oregon Ducks’ football season turns out this year, I’m making a request for next year. It’s not too early, not after watching Duck quarterback Marcus Mariota’s 2014 debut where he showed us what to expect from a focus player. Mariota isn’t the only good Duck. The media makes it sound that […]

Timbers Whitecaps

Portland Timbers Click, Smash Vancouver

There was really no way to see this coming. At least in a non-dreamlike state. Timbers 3, Whitecaps 0? In Vancouver? With the traveling Timbers Army blasting out a chorus of “Our house, in the middle of BC” as fans of the home team scuttled out well before the final whistle making a stadium that […]

Fantasy Football – Week One Options

Green Bay at Seattle Start: Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA The front line of the Green Bay defense has been hit hard by the injury bug. B.J. Raji will miss the entire season, and his replacement at nose tackle in Letroy Guion is doubtful as well. Lynch should easily break 100 yards this week. Bench: Zach […]

Four Good Reasons To Keep Watching While The Oregon Ducks Clobber South Dakota

There’s nothing quite like kicking off football season with a huge intersectional matchup between ranked teams to get the juices flowing. Matchups like Clemson vs Georgia, Florida State vs Oklahoma State, and Wisconsin vs LSU are the kind of games that even the most fair-weathered fan can get excited about. Unfortunately for Oregon Duck fans, […]

Josina Anderson Makes Worst Sports Report Ever – Spot Highlighting Michael Sam’s Showering Habits Causes Huge Backlash At ESPN

This whole thing angers me for several reasons. Apparently Josina Anderson, reporter for ESPN, never listened to Salt N’ Pepa because she would have known that nosing around the St. Louis Rams’ training facility asking about the 411 on the shower “sitch” ever since Michael Sam showed up is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. Or anybody’s, […]

Pac-12 Walk-Thru Week One – And On The 7th Day, Royce Freeman Created …

It’s here. Gone is training camp, preseason hype, and prognostications about who is and isn’t good, and in its place are the games we’ve been waiting for since Florida State was crowned the long awaited final BCS Champion.

The Importance Of “Team”

Of the ten players suspended by Lake Oswego football coach Steve Coury, one quit. Team building is a complicated business. Do it right and you can let out the rope. Coach Coury has been doing it right for decades. He knows when to let out the discipline rope, and when to tighten it. When he […]

JJ Watt

“All Division” Teams – AFC Edition

Football season is upon us. In a couple seemingly long weeks, Sundays at my house will consist of nothing but eating terrible food, drinking beer, and yelling at the TV constantly, so in other words, Sundays won’t change much, except during football season I’m usually sad by the end of the day on Sunday due […]
