    We'll Take Baylor ( 6) and the Accompanying Kick to the Adrenal Gland

    ​Okay, let's do this. And by "this" I mean let's make some moolah. The good ol' illegal fun way, shall we?  In 2008 I lost every penny of my virtual $10,000. In 2009 I wound up losing only $150. In 2010 I netted a cool $5,000. By my math, that's a bottom line of ... oh, who's coun ... More >>

    American Women: Fun to Watch Running Around in Soccer Shorts

    ​You know what I think of women's sports. Why watch them when you can see men run faster, jump higher or hit the ball longer? And you know what I think of soccer.

And TCU (which is apparently jumping to the Big East in 2012) - at the very worst - is going to the Rose Bowl. Couldn't believe my eyes early Saturday morning. Despite a stirrin ... More >>

    BCS Playoffs: Quarterfinals/Semifinals

    ​See, that's the problem with the current bowl system.
