    The Heisman Trophy: Style Over Substance

    Denard Robinson, the next Heisman winner? Yawn.​Reggie Bush gave back his Heisman Trophy. To which I respond: Big friggin' deal. I know the Heisman is one of the most hyped awards, but - let's be honest - it's also the most meaningless sports trophy this side of the Governor's Cup, Golden B ... More >>

    Mavericks 109, Nuggets 93: My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. Is this really progress? Looked around American Airlines Center in the first quarter last night and seemed like everyone was not watching the game on the court, but rather looking down at the phone in their hands. Texting. In general, we've evolved to the point of going to games and then ... More >>

    The Dallas Mavericks Have Lost Two in a Row and Mark Cuban is Fightin' Mad!

    Actually, it's not confounding defeats to the Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks that has Cuban peeved, but more so tonight's American Airlines Center invasion by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). (This is, after all, a blog named after an old rasslin' barn.) Cuban, never one to turn ... More >>

    Happy Basketball! Do You Believe in These Dallas Mavericks?

    Dirk looks excited about the season. You?​Last time we saw our Dallas Mavericks it wasn't pretty was ugly. Jason Terry was flopping (only 15 points per game), the defense was floundering (surrendering 115 per game) and owner Mark Cuban was flapping (his gums at Kenyon Martin's mom) in ... More >>

    The Top 10 Couples I'd Like to See on DWTS

    ​Granted, it would force me to actually watch the ridiculousy cheesy show, but I'd be willing to stomach Dancing With The Stars' sequins and sass and smarminess of Tom Bergeron if only I could orchestrate whom was boogieing down with whom. Following in the "Foxtrot" footsteps of Emmitt S ... More >>

    Mavericks-Nuggets: A Requiem in 5 Predictable Parts

    No Jason Terry. No Gatorade dump. Hindsight, they say, is 20/20. Sometimes, unfortunately, so is foresight. On Friday, May 1 I picked the Denver Nuggets to eliminate the Dallas Mavericks in five games. Last night it came to pass, in the form of Nuggets 124, Mavs 110. Dirk Nowitzki was as grit ... More >>

    Stay classy, Kenyon Martin's girlfriend. Stay classy.Let's keep this short and sweet, as I'm scurrying off to Las Vegas this morning to accept a CLIO Award.

    Nowitzkis 119, Carmelos 117

    Better late than never, a happy tune.Now that, my friends, was a basketball game. A playoff basketball game, with everything on it. Delicious. Considering they still won't win this series, the Mavericks had every reason to fold. And after the week he's had, Dirk Nowitzki had every reason ... More >>

    Attention K-Mart Shoppers: He's Still a Thug

    I was waiting for Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to apologize. But to CBS 11 camerman Bill Ellis, not Kenyon Martin's mom. He issued an "I'm sorry" to her? For what exactly?! As you probably know by now, I detest peer-pressure, politically correct apologies. I'm not suggesting Cuban's cybe ... More >>

    Danny Bollinger Dirk Nowitzki has a case of the old-school Bird Flu. Certain that my prediction of Thuggets in 5 is spot on, my head is bursting with pride. But desperately wanting my Mavericks to pull the upset, my heart is breaking with pain. Before tonight's pivotal Game 2 at De ... More >>

    With his team trailing only 90-82 and eight minutes remaining in Sunday's Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals against the Denver Nuggets, Dallas Mavericks' point guard Jason Kidd sailed a cross-court pass for ... nobody?

    Dallas v. Denver: Nuggets in 5

    I sincerely hope I'm wrong about this, but I have a feeling we're all about to get really pissed. Watching the most athletic - and by far the most animated and arrogant - team in the NBA knock the Dallas Mavericks out of the playoffs could be very painful. Get out your hate hats, Game ...
