Congratulations to Mike Procopio for winning the regular season Voodoo Pool. He essentially led from gate to post, so it was well-deserved. He'll be grubbing on some Davio's (Boston) courtesy of yours truly, so enjoy, Mike... well deserved. You can view the final standings after the picks below. The Wildcard Round often showcases a team that is coming in...
I was flipping through the channels the other day and noticed re-runs of some of my favorite old school TV shows.  Not only did it make me realize how old I was, it made me realize how REALLY old I was, because they were using AOL Instant Messenger on it.  I can recall throwing up “away messages” on AIM...
“I’m not the prototypical leadoff man.  I’m not the prototypical anything.  I just try to be the prototypical Jimmy Rollins.” – Jimmy Rollins   “Ultimately, it’s about being a champion.” – Jimmy Rollins   The city of Philadelphia will say goodbye to a sports hero this week.  A homegrown talent that was the first piece in a large puzzle that would ultimately bring...
Eagles Pick: The Eagles are clearly a better football team. I would have said that even if the Cowboys came back and won that game. Miami just gave up 250+ yards to the Bills on the ground, and the Eagles are built through the run. Furthermore, I think on the other end of the ball they will be able...

Halloween is a fun holiday that gets worse with age. It comes in three phases: candy, booze, and then lameness. Halloween is meant for children, and that’s why the candy phase is the best. It is so good, that we don’t want to give up this fun, so we stretch it out into our young adulthood period and replace the candy...
It is crazy to believe we are ten days away from the start of another NFL season.  With so many story lines completely unrelated to football, I’m not giving any of them one syllable of press.  Will we see our first repeat Super Bowl champions since the Patriots did it over a decade ago?  Will Aaron Rodgers get his...
Each week Mike Angelina will share his picks on the Eagles, a game against the spread in both NFL and NCAA, a Suicide Pool Pick, a 3-team tease, as well as a fantasy player to make sure you start. Follow Mike on Twitter @MikeAngelina Eagles Pick: Hold up. Easy. Take a step back. Hold your horses. Pick your favorite saying...
I took a week off, because when you are the boss of things like this, you can do that.  My Patriots had a phenomenal bounce back game in San Diego after losing to the King of Denim in Green Bay the week before. The defense is the best in the conference and once they get back a few other...
  “Let’s get together over the holidays.” – Me / Cousin Nick   We’re vastly approaching that special time of year.  The time when jewelry stores and car manufacturers smother us with guerilla marketing.  What kind of an asshole buys someone a Lexus for Christmas?  You know what you can do with that big, red bow, pal?  Anyway, “let’s get together over...
