It has been five long and miserable months since the NFL season came to a close in New Jersey.  Fans witnessed a very anti-climactic Super Bowl filled with super human defensive backs from Seattle, Mr. Wilson taking the next step, and of course plenty of Manning Faces.  The beauty of the NFL is everyone gets a clean slate once...
How can you sum up the last few days if you are a Patriots fan?  The typical pun on words would be deflated, like the air got taken out of me, or flat.  Forget being a fan of the NFL, if you have been anywhere but sleeping under a bridge like Frank Gallagher in Shameless, you’ve been made well...
Regardless of what happens on Sunday, Tom Terrific is going to head back to his mansion in Brookline, crawl on top of Super G for the evening, and wake up and make the world’s best pancakes for his kids.  The Neck Beard is going to still read books on The History of Concrete, continue to climb the ranks of...
    “You can take that to the bank, Jack.” – My Dad, countless times.   There are few guarantees in life. The most annoying people in the world will remind you that two of them are death and taxes. Screw you. I despise the notion of both and prefer life guarantees to be far more positive like: ‘Rock and roll will never...
Laying your hard earned money on sporting events can be really fun or ruin your day, life, marriage and bank account. We all get a rush when we win big. That same rush is felt when we lose. It is this feeling that entices us to keep coming back for more. This guide is set-up to help you survive the...
Some of the NFL backlash has died down recently, because that's how things work. We scream louder now, but then wear ourselves out and watch a video of a bear on a swingset. The outrage machine usually finds something else to devour and completely forgets about last week's meal. Recently, ESPN offered themselves up to the people to take...
The horrible state the NFL is currently in was inevitable. This is what they wanted when they decided to become an extended arm of the law. They told their fans to look to them to right the wrongs that our judicial system allowed. They wanted to be Batman. Some millionaire gets no jail time for vehicular manslaughter? The NFL...
Week 4 in the NFL really raised a lot of questions. Who are the Saints? Are the Steelers overrated? (yes) ... And the Pats look absolutely lost. For the most part, we had horrible weeks picking these games. Mike P had a stellar week given the circumstances at 8-5. Darren coming in with a solid 7-6... and Voodoo &...
  “I’ve done a bit of smugglin’, I’ve run my share of grass. I made enough money to buy Miami but I pissed it away so fast.  Never meant to last, never meant to last.” – Jimmy Buffett, “A Pirate Looks at 40.”   I’m 40 years old today and, I think, any man who reaches such a milestone, takes a look...
  Well, it starts tonight. The 2014 NFL season. Week 1 can typically feel like a crapshoot when it comes to picking winners, but this year (as opposed to Week 1s in past seasons), I feel that I have a pretty good handle on how things are going to shake out. Just a refresher – I (Voodoo Brown) have won the...
