    Thursday is the start of the big dance, March Madness, tournament time.  Last year I spent the opening weekend of March Madness in the great city of Las Vegas, Nevada and watched as my buddy Bryan, after playing poker for 14 straight hours, laid $1,000 dollars on Gonzaga because it was the first game of…

  6. Mike Patrick & Dickie V. Suck

    Mar 12, 2006, 3:57 PM EDT

    Mike Patrick may actually be more annoying than Dick Vitale.  I don’t think I would hate J.J. Redick all that much if those two windbags didn’t fellate him over and over and over.  J.J. Redick can play, but watching Duke on ESPN has become a trip to the dentist. Louis Hinnant played phenomenal and Craig…

    Mar 10, 2006, 12:33 AM EDT

    I know things have been a bit slow this week, but Philly sports news hasn’t been jumping.  So to keep you people occupied I thought I would come up with a new weekly feature, the Friday Random Video.  Every Friday I will post a video which somehow ended up on the Internet.  What will these…
