Thanks For The Memories Tom Terrific

It was the annual “Kid Glove Night” ball game at Riverfront Stadium. My little league team was piled into my coach’s station wagon. We were riding home after the game, listening to Marty And Joe on Reds Radio. It was the wrap up show and Marty Brenneman spoke over Joe Nuxhall and said something... Read More

Harper Hits The Jackpot

The Bryce Harper Sweepstakes are over and the Philadelphia Phillies are…well, sort of the winners. Really Harper himself is the big winner. 13 years, $330 million. That’s roughly $25.384 million a year for, what we would assume to be, the rest of his playing career. He’s a Phillies for life. With... Read More

Johnny Can't Help But Be Johnny

Jonny Manziel is back in the news for violating the contractual agreement he had in place with the CFL and thus he has been terminated. CFL Commissioner, Randy Ambrosie, told every team in the league that Manziel is basically no longer allowed to play football in Canada. How bad do you have to be... Read More

Cousins Still Can't Win

Aaron Rodgers is still the cream of the crop when it comes to quarterbacking in the NFC North. He’s the overall best QB and he’s the smartest. He’s articulate and calculated when it comes to things that he says, tweets and posts. The Vikings quarterback on the other hand, well, he’s not. He’s... Read More

Antonio Brown Want's Out

Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade from the Steelers. We saw that coming since the Pro Bowl wide receiver tweeted a farewell to the Steelers and their fans, saying it is "time to move on and forward." Then again, this was just before he was found guilty of reckless driving after he “no-... Read More

The Future Is NOW For The Bucks

The arms race in the NBA Eastern Conference has taken on a life of its own. The Sixers hauled in Tobias Harris earlier in the week. Marc Gasol ends up with the Raptors and the Bucks turn a Thon Maker trade into Nikola Mirotic. The Celtics can be scary good if they all put it together and that’s the... Read More

The Brewers 2019 Questions

The trucks are loaded and they’re on their way southwest. From bats to bubble gum, hats to helmets, pullovers to pine tar, the Brewers semis are on the road towards the 2019 season. The big question is can this team replicate, and go one step farther, from what we witnessed last year? Can they? Of... Read More

Davis Would Be Nice

So Anthony Davis says that the Milwaukee Bucks are one of 4 teams that he wouldn’t mind being traded to and then signing long-term. That’s great but there are 2 problems there. 1. I don’t think the Bucks have enough pieces to put into the deal. And 2. With Giannis coming up on the Super Max... Read More
