How Do You Lose Millions? Play in the NFL

Listen up, sports fans! Don’t get yourself into crippling debt like your favorite NFL stars. While the minimum NFL salary is just under $400,000, most players make almost $2 million in salary per year. Over the course of an average career, this will equal more than $10 million. You’d think the players would aggressively save, make smart investments, and leave …

NFL Week 10 – Predictions

IND Over JAX – I have yet to see anything from Jacksonville that would lead me to believe that they’ll repeat their performance against Indy from September 23.  Jacksonville has continued a downward slide while Indy has rallied around their coach.  Pagano’s extremely unfortunate sickness seems to have crystallized this team in to a unified single-minded group.  I think Luck …

NFL Week 9 – Predictions

KC @ SD – KC did not look pretty last week against the Raiders but SD has not been too impressive this season either.   They only managed 6 points against Cleveland.  Come on, Cleveland?  Everyone’s scoring on Cleveland.   I’m looking for an upset win here with KC taking the victory.   Perhaps Norv get his offensive coordinator job back after this …

The Loss Of A Friend

It feels like I have one more day with my friend, before they leave me. This might seem ridiculous to you, and I accept that – but I am going to feel a sense of great loss today. Baseball season is over. There’s going to be a gigantic parade down Market Street in San Francisco today. Hundreds of thousands of …

Top Exercises That Improve Your Golf Game

The common notion about Golf game among people is that it doesn’t require much physical fitness unlike other sports. The reasons why people draw this inference are due to the fact that golf players are not seen moving much around the golf course, they take limited swing and follow them with limited steps. But these are wrong notions about the …

SF Giants Pitcher Sergio Romo and that WICKED Slider

The World Series has gone in favor of the San Francisco Giants for the first 2 games. There’s been some serious offense coming out of the dugout for the Orange and Black, but the pitching is just ridiculous. Check out this short highlight of closer Sergio Romo. Watch his wicked slider cross the plate and practically buckle batters in their …

NFL Week 8 – Predictions

TB @ MIN – Josh Freeman and crew visit Ponder at Ponder’s house…  OK, it’s a little early to call it his, so we’ll go with A. Pete’s place.  Anyway, though I like some of what I’ve seen from the Bucs, I don’t think they can muster enough offense to beat the Vikings.  I expect to see a couple TD’s …

Tweet Now, Think Later?

The San Francisco Giants made history last night. In a game 7 blowout, the Giants survived elimination game after elimination game to dethrone the current national champions…the game ending in a theatrical downpour that made for one of the most unusual conclusions of a series in memory. St. Louis Cardinals fans are generally regarded to be if not the best, …

NFL Week 7 – Predictions

SEA @ SF -As I look back at the records for these teams, I see Seattle’s losses are to teams are to teams with winning records.  Then with San Francisco, they lost to a .500 team and a team with winning record.  So, Seattle’s losses are to more ‘impressive’ teams.  This is a home game for the 9ers and they …

NFL Week 6 – Predictions

Last week’s report card – 9 out of 14 and I got the Cromartie playing offense call correct. PIT @ TEN – Pittsburgh continues winning ways after rolling to a victory in Tennessee.  Chris Johnson, as I mentioned last week, is not putting up numbers like he did in the past.  Running on this Steelers D should be pretty difficult.  …

NFL Week 5 – Predictions

Last weeks results – 10 out of 15. ARI@STL – Cardinals are attempting to go 5 and 0 tonight.  I will cautiously step on to the bandwagon and pick them to continue on undefeated.  It’s tough to go in to a division rival’s house and take away a victory but I think they have the right personnel to defeat the …

The Truth About The NFL: Why The Ref Lockout Will End Soon

Seattle Screw. Fail Mary. Clueless in Seattle. The clever names are flying around Twitter this morning. I watched a football game last night that was mostly unremarkable. The Seattle Seahawks defense put Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers on the mat 8 times in the first half, that was something. Not much offensive spark was demonstrated by either squad. Then we got …
