Baseball starts today, going on as we speak with the Yankees, Tigers, Braves and Nationals kicking it off. Should be a fun season.

Madden ’12

By Blaidd Drwg

EA Sports, in conjunction with ESPN is letting the fans pick the cover of Madden ’12. Each team has one player listed and the voting is taking place in a bracket format. There are some guys on there who you would expect and some really questionable selections. I have no idea what […]

Mike Sweeney calls it a day

By Blaidd Drwg

In 1995, the possibilites were endless for Mike Sweeney. Oh, what could have been.

Mike Sweeney signed a one day deal with the Royals yesterday and then promptly announced his retirement. Sweeney was probably the most feared hitter no one ever heard of back in the early 2000’s playing for […]

The Big Dance – Sweet 16 Results Show

By Blaidd Drwg

I really need to congratulate myself. With Ohio St. losing, my bracket is officially done, before the Elite 8. I think this has to be a record for someone who was actually picking games with some degree of knowledge. There were some great games in the Sweet 16 – Bulter continues to […]

The Big Dance – Day 3 Results Show

By Blaidd Drwg

Day 3 was an utter disaster for me. The ending of that Pitt game, well, lets just say I am never picking them again. It was a good day of hoops watching though – lots of exciting, close games to keep the viewing interest. I had a bunch to say about the […]

The Big Dance – Day 2 Results Show

By Blaidd Drwg

Day 2 was a much better day for picking games than Day 1. There were some tight games and fantastic endings. Memphis came within a last second blocked shot of pushing my record to 15-1 for the day and George Mason made a furious comeback to down the once Tops 5 ranked […]
