Crippling Materialism Failed Us All: Commercials During the Big Game

Since the Bears haven’t even sniffed a world championship since the first quarter of the game in 2006, the main focus for me has been the ads that run into between Peyton Manning interceptions or blown coverage by New England’s secondary. The commercials are usually the highlight of the game and offer the most accessible water cooler talk to non-sports people (read: losers) but this year, they were down right HORRIBLE. Obviously, I’m not going to include links to any because we don’t do free ads but all the ads this year were absolute duds. The only ones that...

It is a must, and Boston doesn’t have the overall production you need to be successful between the pipes. Claude Julien fired with the #bruins sitting 30th...

NBA Rules That Are Basically Suggestions

Traveling has been one of the most popular criticisms of the NBA for many years now, but it seems like it’s become even more of a problem recently. There are owners and coaches, such as Mark Cuban and Steve Kerr, that have been vocal in their disapproval of the rule’s enforcement. And even as a huge fan of the game, I can’t blame them or NBA critics, because guys like James Harden and LeBron James have been getting away with egregious travels for years now. But this isn’t the only rule that’s essentially a “suggestion” for NBA referees; here’s...
