We want to take this time during the off-season to recognize broadcasters, commentators, and analysts. During this day and age of media and technology, sports talk is an aspect of the game that we really enjoy. For this segment of “Athletes Turned Analysts”, we discuss two guys that truly belong on the tube! Continue reading

FX has created one of the funniest shows ever regarding Football: “The League”. This show is about childhood friends (now mid thirties men) who have been playing fantasy football for years. It’s so relatable! The show covers everything from the draft , making trades, questionable decisions, etc…all the way up to the awarding of the league trophy: The Shiva. Last season, they even created a last place trophy called the Sacko. Oh, the hilarity! Continue reading
We had SO much fun Monday night, that this week we decided we wanted to go where the people are again! A couple years ago, we watched a Monday night football game at BlackFinn when the New Orleans Saints played the Atlanta Falcons. (the year the Saints wind up winning beating Atlanta and winning the Super Bowl later). We had such a great time that we decided to go back!
We were NOT disappointed! If you know about me, you know I love talking trash and being around proud fans of their team. While I went primarily to check out my Redskins (and the official ESPN 980 post game show was being taped there), there were fans for just about every 1 o clock game on! Steelers, Texans, Cowboys, Philly, 49ers…and of course Redskins fans! Everyone was cheering (or jeering) at different games. They had the sports bar MUST HAVES: lots of huge tvs, lots of beer options, and delicious food! Check it out:
HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL Week 2
Burgers on the grill is how we kicked off Week 2 of NFL games on a crisp early fall day in Washington, DC. Kudos to the NFL network and ESPN for starting game day coverage even earlier this year. It’s fantastic! I fully expected my Redskins to go 2-0 heading into Dallas and they did not disappoint…well sort of. They should have blown OUT the Cards but due to mistakes, they let them hang around the whole game. Still..a win is a win and now WE WANT DALLAS!
I continue to be impressed with Cam Newton! He certainly has that star quality! He still needs to learn personnel on the field though…Charles Woodson is pretty good. I think he must have forgotten.
As a Cowboy fan coming off another loss at the mistake prone hands of Tony Romo, it wasn’t a good week for me. I heard it from everybody and everywhere: people on Twitter, Facebook, co-workers, employees, customers!! I even see my boss’s boss and the first thing he says to me was, “Hey Daryle, HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS!”. Then he sends me a work related email using the tagline, HTTR. Since I wear my Cowboy colors proudly, I take it, but I also give it. I even got into a friendly twitter battle yesterday with a fellow blogger @Sports_R_Me_MP3, who loves his Niners, who happened to be playing my ‘Boys. Now before I get to the game, I ripped Romo last week for giving away another game. I wiped my hands of the QB. But yesterday, after being knocked out of the game with fractured ribs, Romo toughed it out to lead the ‘Boys back in an OT victory, after being down going into the 4th quarter. Romo is in no way off my Hit List, but he showed me and a lot of fans what he is actually capable of doing Continue reading
