UPDATE 7/31:  BRONSON WAS ADOPTED LAST WEEKEND! Looks like the Browns are getting a mascot. Browns VP of Marketing Kevin Griffin telling me that the Browns will unveil a LIVE bulldog mascot named “Swagger” this season. — Chris Fillar (@ItsFillar) July 13, 2014 I have two thoughts on this. Shouldn’t the mascot...

Savannah Day.

While I was creeping Savannah’s Instagram for the Why Lebron Comes Home piece written two weeks ago, I came across her sophomore Buchtel High homecoming pic.  The tumblers trying to the crack the code of ‘yeah it’s nice Lebron stuck with his high school girlfriend all these years but he can...

World Cup round of 16 degenerate thread.

Let’s give our World Cup degeneracy a home.  Here’s some picks and notes on the round of sixteen.  The lines are as of Saturday PM.  Straighten me out soccer people because as it stands, I think being a non-soccer guy has actually been an advantage in that I didn’t bring...

Why LeBron signs with Cleveland.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  What can I tell you… it’s been too damn nice around here.  Hampton, NH is not often never called a beautiful beach but at low tide, it can surprise you. There’s also been not a whole lot that’s gotten my attention. World Cup...

World Cup: five questions, open thread.

Friend of the site and Liverpool Man, Tom_RR88, did one of his five questions in five minutes at his site.  Sadly, I didn’t get the call: We’ve gathered a panel of soccer enthusiasts to talk about which games and players to keep an eye on, and try to figure out...

AFCN status report. //Steelers-Bengals-Ravens

I asked Zarathustra to take the AFC North for us because his football opinions and mine sometimes diverge and he’s a uniquely fun read.  What I hadn’t considered is that the guy who goes last out of this group AND is charged with the AFC North review … kinda carries...

AFCW status report.

Bluedog is one of our correspondents from SoCal (San Bernardino way) and he’s giving us a looksee at the AFC West this morning. Welcome to the AFC West.  Last year, this division saw three playoff teams (including the eventual AFC Champions), two quarterbacks who some had previously written off coming...

NFCW status report.

I’m going to pick up the NFC West for Jeff Rich.  It sucks when real life interferes with the important business of internet football blogging but we must be flexible.  Won’t lie, am disappointed because Jeff’s stuff is top-notch and being Phoenix-based he’s a lot more tuned in to the...
