It was an especially sunny day as a small boy, no older than 6, sat in the backseat of his father’s Chervolet barreling down I-95 to visit his brother in Virginia.  His mother sat quietly in the front seat so her son could listen to the game that was blaring out of the speakers.  She hadn’t known him to...
Check out CJ Sullivan's newly released stand-up comedy album, "What Am I Complaining About" on iTunes! This NFL season was absolutely absurd, embarrassing, terrible, and even worse — inevitable.  It occurred during 2017, so it never stood a chance. The nightmare began well before the first ball was kicked in training camp, when Colin Kaepernick decided to "opt out" of his contract...
Voodoo's postseason record: Against the spread: 4-4 Straight up: 6-2 Over/Under: 4-4   Mike Procopio's postseason record: Against the spread: 4-4 Straight up: 5-3 Over/Under: 4-4   Sunday January 22nd @ 3:05pm ET Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons (-4.5) Over/Under: 61 Temperature: Indoor Wind: Indoor   I've been going back & forth all week with the outcome of this game, and as much as I want to see the Packers advance to the Super...
Remember the dialogue between Rocky and Paulie getting off the plane into a snowy Siberian abyss in Rocky IV? The scene was the perfect foreshadowing for what was about to unfold during the rest of the movie. I picture Belichick and Brady strolling into meetings at Gillette every day this week listening to the “Hearts on Fire” and “Dead...
After suffering through the Wildcard Weekend games, we've been rewarded with three marquee matchups in the Divisional Round — 3 out of 4 ain't too bad. And if you play Fanduel, you might have a reason to tune in to the Houston @ New England game. Mike & I didn't kill it last week on the totals or spreads,...
Congratulations, Mike Angelina, on winning the 2016 VoodooBrown Office Pool. Mike led the pack pretty much all season and went 15-1 in Week 17 to hold off 2-time defending champ Mike Procopio's late season charge. He posted a 168-84 record, which — just like Mike Procopio last year — outperformed most ESPN/Fox/CBS contributors. Well done, Mike. Follow Mike on...
  "Breaking records is not something you expect to do.  That's a sports thing, not a comedy or writing thing." - Louis C.K.   So, Jeff sits down and says to me, "Julio Jones had a day, huh?"  Immediately, the 300 yard club came to mind.  Who are they?  How many NFL receivers have caught balls for that much yardage in a...
  “Youth is wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw   There’s a movement happening in the NFL right now.  One I’m proud to see.  For what seemed like an eternity, I have witnessed what I believed to be a near catastrophic drop in talent at the quarterback position.  Just here in Philadelphia, if you track back to the mid 1980s,...
Remember Fred Savage’s brother in “The Wizard” who would just say “California” and proceed to destroy anyone he played in video games with his eyes closed?  That is what the NFL is becoming in relation to matching coaching wits with Bill Belichick.  He is a mastermind of epic proportions.  The power move of cutting off the NFL logo on...
  “Most people don’t grow up.  Most people age.” – Maya Angelou   When a man reaches 40, he generally heads in one of two directions.  The first involving an inner dialogue about growing up, maturing which can lead to taking life too seriously.  These gentlemen represent the well adjusted, financially responsible, company leaders of the world.  The kind of guys you...
