Big Z throws a no-no.

Carlos Zambrano threw the second no-hitter in the majors tonight in the Cubs 5-0 victory over the Astros. Much to the delight of the crowd at Wrigley North in Milwaukee, Big Z struck out a season high 10 and walked one in the Cubs’ first no-hitter in over 30 years. This is after leaving his […]

Wells to play against USC, but will it even matter?

Chris “Beanie” Wells has been given the OK to play when the No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes travel to play the No. 1 USC Trojans.

College Football Week One: What have we learned?

New season, same ole Clemson Tigers It baffles me how a team with so much talent always finds a way to piss away a season. It’s almost not funny anymore. At this point, Tommy Bowden is stealing money from the university. Either Clemson is perfectly fine with being mediocre or Tommy Bowden has photos of […]

Rudi Johnson is cut by the Bengals……………….Wait what?

As thin as the Cincinnati Bengals are at wide receiver, Marvin Lewis decides to cut Rudi Johnson who could possibly shoulder the load until the Bengals are back to full strength. Is it me or is this move completely crazy? So I guess Marvin is putting his job and money on a proven #2 receiver […]

Where’s the easiest place to catch up with Usain Bolt?

It’s definitely not on any track, but I think I know just the place. All he needs is a little Guinness and a club full of Jamaica’s finest women and he’ll slow down just enough for an interview. (1:27 mark in the video)

The thrill is gone! (And so is the "Stache")

So, Jason Giambi has decided to cut his mustache to break him out the funk he has been in lately. Giambi was hitting .234 with three homeruns for the month of July and followed that up with a 0-for-9 start in August. Giambi insists that he’s growing it back, but you know what they say, […]
