Hate Week: Crosstown Shootout

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”, yes everyone it’s Christmas time or the holiday season if that’s how you roll. More importantly it’s college basketball season!!!!! With all the early season tournament games out of the way we find ourselves in a mixture of warm up games, conference v. conference games, and best of all rivalry games. Cincinnati, Ohio is home to some famous chili and an even better inner-city rivalry, and no it’s not Skyline chili vs Gold Star chili (Skyline by 90), it is the Xavier University Musketeers vs the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. Growing...

Hate Week: Michigan-Ohio State

“Your outside may not say their name. But your inside can't imagine life without them.” FOX's promo for Saturday's game is 🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/UFtMFIJYWv — Eleven Warriors (@11W) November 21, 2017 Ah the last week of regular season college football. The most hateful of hate weeks. Michigan and Ohio State will be meeting for the 111th time. Michigan leads the rivalry 58-48-6. Yet, much of sports is “What are you doing for me lately?” and in the case of Michigan the answer is not much. Since 2000 the Michigan Wolverines have won just three games against the Buckeyes….Three games….since 2000…let...

Has Anyone Ever Gotten a More Raw Deal than Steve Harrington in Stranger Things Season 2?

*I guess Spoilers ahead* Steve Harrington has probably had the greatest 180 in TV history, as he starts out season 1 as the antagonist and by the end of season 2 he is without a doubt the most likable character in the show.

Results Not My Precedent defeats Big Lawyer Brand 5-4 After the tight victory outfielder, Will Hrabe had just one thing to say… “Respect Us!”   Hughes, Jahnke, Wang and Associates defeat Athletic Malpractice 18-3 HJW refers to themselves as the team that has the most fun.

Kneel Before Saad

When Saad was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets after the 2015 Blackhawks Stanley Cup win, I was confused, angry, and sad all at the same time. Well now Saad is back where he belongs in Chicago, and he’s come back in a huge way. Saad brings back so many things that were either lackluster in the 2016 and 2017 playoffs, or he brings back things that his counterpart; Artemi Panarin, never had. The things that were lackluster that Saad brings back to me are speed, size, and scoring. Panarin had a hard time being effective in the two...

List of the Best Ogres and Dwarfs

In honor of the Astros vs. Yankees ALCS matchup and the inevitable Aaron Judge-Jose Altuve comparisons, I’m putting together a list of the best big guy-little guy combos in every major sport. Always remember friends, whether you’re pushing 5 ft 5 and have drawn comparisons to Oompa-Loompa Timmy your whole life or you’re 350 and none of your belts fit, you are all God’s children and Jesus loves you. NFL 5 ft 6, 190 lbs Darren Sproles and 6 ft 4, 340 lbs Marcus Peters.  Ted Washington and well, just about anybody. Back in his playing days, Big Ted was...

Burger King Adds Spicy Nuggets to Menu

On the night where the US Men’s Soccer team lost to Trinidad and Tobago, we, as a nation, are angry. But, like always, Americans will rally around one another and pick each other up in times of great need. And that is exactly what the Hamburger King has done. Just a mere days after I mentioned that Wendy’s had eliminated Spicy Nugs from their menu, BK brings them back from the dead. Not only do they bring them back, but they absolutely bury Wendy’s in the process by taking out a full-page ad in the Miami Herald offering a free...
