    Our British Texan Discovers the Dallas Stars and Falls Madly in Love with Weird-Ass Hockey

    Two years ago, when I arrived in the States from the UK, I had a very vague idea of what ice hockey was. I was, though, sure that it was one of the most far-fetched sports out there. While most sports are played on the sort of easily accessible field we can all find and involve a ball, hockey is pla ... More >>

    The Omni's Godzilla-Sized Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl Promo Is Now Haunting the NFL

    Thanks in large part to a series of freak snow-and-ice storms leading up to the game, North Texas made a shambles of its first ever Super Bowl-hosting opportunity in February 2011. Canceled flights, snarled traffic, an overbooked stadium, sheets of ice falling from the roof of Cowboys Stadium -- it ... More >>

    Tony Romo is Sixth Most Hated Player in the NFL, Says Nielsen Survey

    Tony Romo's partying-in-Cabo-with-Jessica-Simpson-right-before-the-playoffs days seem to be behind him, but he's still a hard man for Cowboys fans to love.

    March Madness, NFL Style: DeMarcus Ware a Madden Cover Boy?

    ​While in the midst of a lockout, the NFL owners and players these days can't even agree on what they disagree on. What to do for a football junkie?

    Packers 31, Steelers 25: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. Can't believe I just watched Troy Polamalu play like Alan Ball. And James Harrison like Anthony Spencer. I know Harrison had a sack, but for the most part those playmakers were non-factors. 9. Biggest play of the game was Rashard Mendenhall's fumble at Green Bay's 36 on the first pl ... More >>
