By Josh Kramer We all knew it was just a matter of time.  An inevitable occurrence.  There are not too many certainties in the MLB these days.  I mean who saw the Cardinals winning the World Series, much less making … Continue reading

The past few days have been bonkers in the wide world of sports as usual.  NFL Football returned in the form of Preseason games.  America finally ended their drought at golf majors.  In addition, the American public got to witness one of the biggest choke jobs of all time in the tournament.  Plus we are now in the thick of the best few weeks of tennis that we have in the states.

Here are the items that have my attention.

A 22-year-old just made a mockery of one of golf’s most prestigious tournaments.  The best tournament in tennis just began.  And the NBA Draft is set for Thursday.  There is so much going on in the sporting world.

Last week was absolutely wild.  A Stanley Cup Game 7.  Riots in Vancouver.  A 22-year-old making a mockery of golf on the big stage. Plus there was continued hope,  and then loss of hope from the NFL regarding a possible CBA.  What should you be looking forward to this week? Continue reading

“Weekly Nickel”

Chris Bosh (pictured above) was masterful for Miami in Game 3. I fully expect Miami's Big Three to continue to conquer the East on their way to an appearance in the NBA Finals.

This past weekend was a wild one.  Great playoff action.  The start of Interleague Play.  More horse racing.  And of course the ongoing NFL disputes.  Have no fear, next week is here.  Lets take a look at what the big events for the upcoming week are.

5.  Ray Lewis says that crime will rise if the season is lost.  Look for more players to come out and speak their minds as the week continues.  Though it is not actual NFL action, it is the best we can get during this unfortunate strike.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have not exactly had a story book season thus far.  Really not much has gone right on or off the field.  Surprisingly though, the team has not completely flopped.  Or at least not yet.  Sitting at 13 and … Continue reading
