    This draft could be one of the wildest ones in years regarding trading up, down, picks, and maybe even veterans so all of us that do mock drafts could have a bad year this year. Round 1 1. Tampa Bay Bucs = Jameis Winston QB Florida State 2. Tennessee Titans = Marcus Mariota QB Oregon 3. Jacksonville Jaguars = Leonard Williams DL USC 4. Oakland Raiders = Amari Cooper WR Alabama (watch out for the Falcons here trying to move up to get Dante Fowler) 5. Washington Redskins = Dante Fowler Jr. EDGE Florida 6. New York Jets = Kevin White WR West Virginia 7. Chicago Bears = Vic Beasley EDGE Clemson…

    Home-ice advantage is important because players can thrive off of the energy their fans provide through loud chanting and cheering. Fans have always shown their support for their home team by wearing their team’s colors. Perhaps, the idea behind “white-outs” is it can be […] The post Lightning taking extreme measures to ensure home-ice advantage appeared first on MyFantasySportsTalk.

  • Awesome: Tampa Bay turns rink to Giant Blades of Steel Game

    28 May 2015 | 12:40 pm
    Scott Audette/NHLI via Getty Images by: OSGPhil/@osgphilThe Tampa Bay Lightning saved their last home game Tuesday night for the one of the coolest intermission breaks we've ever seen. And the break took place during game 6 of the Lightning's best-of-7 series with the New York Rangers, one that is likely to go down as a classic.The Lightning's game production unit used the laser presentation system to turn the ice rink into a life-size version of NIntendo's "Blades of Steel" video game back in the late 1980's. Complete with the appropriate sound effects. Though they changed the name to "Bolts…

    Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports by: OSGPhil/@osgphilWell, you've got to hand it to the management of the Chicago Bulls, they showed now former coach Tom Thibodeau who is boss.The Bulls parted ways with Thibodeau Thursday afternoon after 5 seasons as the teams head coach. Thibs was pretty good in that role, leading the Bulls to a 394-255 record during that time. He also garnered NBA Coach of the Year honors in 2011 after leading the Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals.But, apparently his style lost favor with the players and created a lot of tension between him and team G.M Gar Forman along…

Blatter is now the center of attention as almost everyone following the indictments/charges is calling for him to step down. FIFA is supposed to hold a vote for president on Friday. And because Blatter apparently has some…

    11 May 2015 | 8:51 pm
    It's been a few days. I hate when life gets in the way of football. But what better way to get back into the blogging groove than to analyze the just-announced suspension of one of football's most polarizing figures.Unless your last 24 hours were spent disconnected from society (perhaps you were swimming 26 miles to shore after falling off your fishing boat in the middle of the Atlantic), you've heard that Patriots QB Tom Brady, a shoe-in future Hall of Famer, has been suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season. An NFL investigation determined he willingly played a role in…
  • WATCH: Top 100 College Football Plays of 2014-15

    <a href=http://www.SportsBlog.com/profile/SaturdaysintheFall>SaturdaysintheFall</a>
    2 May 2015 | 2:17 pm
    Here's another fun college football video from last season that will make you wish kickoff for 2015 wasn't still four months away.Props to the guy who made it. Culling over 100,000 plays down to the best 100 isn't easy. And given that it's YouTube, whose comments section is notorious for drawing the dregs of society out of the gutter, I'm sure hordes of ignorant homers representing teams across the country immediately swarmed the poor guy for leaving out some three-yard touchdown run or interception where the ball was thrown right to the DB.But I'm happy with the list, even if the top 25 or…

    I know the draft is on tonight and that's what anyone into football is supposed to be watching. But I haven't tuned in to a minute of it. Too much pomp and circumstance, too much manufactured suspense and, most of all, WAY too much downtime filled by uninformed bloviating from the talking heads. It's just not exciting to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm still keeping up with who goes where, especially when it comes to my team, the Titans (we got Mariota! Good luck with headcase Winston, Tampa Bay!). Luckily for me and for others who lack the patience to endure this event live, there's an app for…
  • VIDEO: 89-Year-Old Scores Touchdown at KU Spring Game

    28 Apr 2015 | 2:22 pm
    Yet another reason why college football is awesome. Check out this video from the spring game at Kansas. Watch #28 run it in for the score. That's 89-year-old Bryan Sperry, a WWII veteran and former Jayhawk player. He played in the 1948 Orange Bowl. He may not have the same speed as 67 years ago, but look at that vision as he navigates through the openings made by his blockers.Even better, look at the smile on the guy's face. Ear to ear, baby.

    Hopefully that'll get some SEO traffic in here.This post isn't about Bruce Jenner, though. Personally I don't care if the guy is transitioning to a lemur. If he's (she's?) happy, I'm happy for him (her?), and I certainly won't judge him (her?). Live and let live. But beyond that, I have no interest in talking incessantly about Bruce and his (her?) life choices. And I'm over being inundated with Bruce, Bruce and more BRUCE BRUCE BRUCE with a side of BRRUUUUUUCCEEEEE every time I pick up a newspaper, turn on a TV or log into social media.Consider this my attempt to change the subject.Besides,…
