"We do not remember days.  We remember moments." - Cesare Paves   36 hours before writing this, I sat alongside Cousin Nick at a pool bar in Mexico, drinks in hand.  Thirty feet to our right was the beach.  A few feet in front of us, our wives, also with drinks in hand, were laughing.  To my left, our kids splashed...
"If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story." - Orson Welles   The honeymoon is, indeed, over. The Philadelphia Eagles are bordering on a Kotite-esque collapse and the majority of the blame should be placed squarely on the coaching staff.  A team that was once poised for a first round bye or even home...

Any fan in the New England region circled this this Sunday on the calendar, the second the schedule was released. The drug addict owner, the scumbag general manager, and a fan base whom is planning on flying a blimp over the stadium (which has a closed roof might I add), have to face their demons in a just...
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...
