  6. Vikings-Eagles TV Blackout: If It Happens, Who Benefits?

    The Vikings still must sell over 3,000 tickets by Saturday at 4:30pm Eastern for their Sunday playoff game versus the Eagles. A television blackout looms, unless Minnesota can fill those seats...

  8. Terrell Davis: Hall of Famer?

    Terrell Davis' last game in the NFL was in 2001, after which he walked away from a game he dominated. It was a brilliant but abbreviated career cut short by injury. The question bears asking once again: Is T...

  10. Time to Minimize the Importance of the NHL Shootout

    I'll put it out front that I'm old school. Never liked the shootout, never will. I do understand, however, that it's likely here to stay. There's an unattractive aspect to the tie and a lack of finality that paying fans deserve to resolve...

  12. Bowling Deserves More Attention in Sporting World

    As an avid bowler, I've always wondered why the popularity of the sport has waned from its heyday in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's. Bowling is an activity enjoyed recreationally and competitively, by young and old, without any restrictions on weather...

    Writer's note: I'll preface the article by noting that this in no way is an anti-Chargers rhetoric. Had Denver won Sunday night they still would not have belonged in the playoffs within a just system...

  14. Denver Broncos Defense Truly Offensive

    As this article is being authored, the Broncos-Chargers game is not technically over, but in all aspects it is—down 24 points in the fourth, and with one San Diego punt in the game, no sense waiting for the final gun to put "pen to paper...

  17. Broncos-Chargers: Thoughts on Sunday Play-in Game

    I'm excited for Sunday night's "it should never have come to this" game in San Diego. Making the playoffs, even if it's only a formality, would be a good achievement for a team that has been absent from the postseason recently...

  18. Broncos hapless Monday Night -- nothing has changed from 2007

    One can make a lot of excuses for last night's drubbing in Foxboro. Blame Jay Cutler's first-pass finger-smash against a helmet that rendered him largely ineffective. Blame Andre Hall's killer fumbles as Denver tried to impose a road lead early...
