If you’re like me, you’re counting down the days until college football starts.

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

It’s cool that KFC found a guy who looks exactly like Colonel Sanders to play the iconic chicken peddler in new TV ads. What’s odd is how they’ve chosen to utilize him.

Why the ‘5 Best Baseball Movies’ Are Actually Terrible

Monday, April 20th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

$212.46. That is what the average family of four spent at a major league ballgame last year.  For the budget-conscious, that price tag makes it mighty tempting to stay home and enjoy the boys of summer on TV—either a live game or a classic baseball movie. But watching some of the most fondly remembered films […]

Nymphing the Green Weenie: Husband & Wife Fly Fishing Adventures On the Fabled Gunpowder River

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015 - by Audie Cockings

Nymphing sounds naughty. Perhaps because it is. Teasing a rainbow trout out from under a boulder with flashy fake bait can be at once titillating, nerve-racking, frustrating, and exhilarating when the mission is indeed a success. The drive to feed is a universal pillar among survival instincts. A satisfying rush on par with few other […]

Don’t Take Me Out to the Ballgame?

Saturday, April 11th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

Reports accuse the Mets of cutting its stadium security force by 1/3. Mets officials dispute. “The security of all who enter Citi Field is a top priority,” reads a press release. Maybe, but it’s impossible to find public safety info on the stadium web site. And, its not just sports, in this post-9/11 world, any public event from […]

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

The Duke basketball team sailed into the Sweet Sixteen. That may be ho-hum to Blue Devils fans. The hoopsters have been there 28 times before. Twenty-two — think about that for a moment.

NFL Star Retires at 24, Leaves Millions on the Table. Why?

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

San Francisco linebacker Chris Borland packed it in after one season. The cash and fame, he claimed, weren’t worth the risk of retiring with a scrambled brain. To be fair, we know a lifetime of being battered in sport can be debilitating. Famed Dallas Cowboy running back Tony Dorsett in a recent interview. acknowledged he […]

‘March Madness’ is an Understatement

Friday, March 20th, 2015 - by Rick Moran

If Thursday’s opening act of the 2015 NCAA Tournament was any indication, college basketball fans better have the local ER standing by with a defibrillator. There has never been an opening round like this one in the history of the tournament — and we’re only half way through. Two #3 seeds — Baylor and Iowa […]

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015 - by Max Steinberg

Last week, I wrote an article covering strategy for Daily Fantasy Golf on DraftKings. Golf, in my opinion, is one of the most fun daily fantasy sports, but it’s limited in its profitability because the contests are usually on the smaller side and the tournaments run only once a week. Daily Fantasy NBA, on the […]

How to Profit Playing Daily Fantasy Golf on

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015 - by Max Steinberg

Some people would say I’m a professional gambler. I’d say that I’m a professional gamer — strategy games, specifically. I’ve played professional poker for a living since I was 19 years old, and I’ve only had a handful of losing months in my career. But this may not be surprising to you. Over the past […]

Does Brain Damage Make a Case for Ending Sports?

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 - by Theodore Dalrymple

When I was working in Africa I read a paper that proved that intravenous corticosteroids were of no benefit in cerebral malaria.
