I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

Letter To The Editor

This post comes from Lakeland, FL native Jeremy Wilson. Jeremy wrote our first ever guest post entitled, The Curious Case of Jeremy (Lin). He is now joining us to blaze another trail and to help spark a debate. This is our first “letter to the editor”, in which he is responding to Colin’s post yesterday on why the NBA Playoffs are better than March Madness. He originally started writing it as a comment and then it kept getting longer and longer and was submitted as a guest post. Feel free to weigh in on the debate in the comment section below!

Why The NBA Playoffs Are Better Than March Madness

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports | 5 Comments

The NBA playoffs are better than March Madness. Try and debate me. If you have a team of interest in the NBA, then the NBA Playoffs are so much better than the few weeks of March Madness. If you are a basketball fan the playoffs give you the best sample of competition possible. Allow me to rebuttal the anticipated arguments. After deconstructing those oppositions, I will then present the reasons for you to agree with my opening statements. Read more

The Memphis Grizzlies Case For Support

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Basketball, Featured, Sports | 1 Comment

“If right now I had to stake my life on one team making the NBA Finals it would be the Memphis Grizzlies.” -Bill Simmons

As some of you know, I work in the non-profit world. For non-profit organizations to survive it is essential to have a solid case for support together to share with prospective donors. Every charity organization is trying to do good in an area of need and they are all competing for the same dollars from prospective donors. A solid case for support is something that can really set you apart. It’s something that leads donors to believe that their money is going to have the greatest impact with you.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I present to you the Memphis Grizzlies case for support. This is designed to persuade citizens of cities outside of Memphis (i.e. Nashville) to hop on board with the Grizzlies. So if you’re tired of pretending like you care about hockey and want some real excitement in your life, I’ve got you covered. Read more

Tuesday’s With Tony: Tony Steals The Show

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports, Tuesday's With Tony | Leave a comment

Here’s a fun and easy transition for my night. I spent hours studying for and insurance test, then wrote a blog post about Tony Allen. That transition went about as well as this clever pun not inserted here, which was intended to be, but my brain hasn’t allowed the funny part to be turned on just yet. Yes, I know several of my readers have already clicked away by now. But for those of you still here, I thank you. We will get there, have faith in me and my abilities to draw you in more and more. See, it’s working isn’t it. Read more

Tuesday’s With Tony: Quest for the Retweet

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports, Tuesday's With Tony | 1 Comment

And so it began. Yesterday I made several attempts to get my buddy Tony Allen to retweet something I sent him. He is always RT’ing, so I figured I would make a conscious effort to get TA to approve a 140 character or less configuration.

I would like to apologize to those whose Twitter feeds I overwhelmed. Don’t judge my desperation as the night came to a close. Now to share with you my feeble attempts to get @aa000g9 to give me my 12 seconds of fame, since @Scootereater didn’t seem too impressed with our blog or website or blog or is it a website? Am I getting paid for this? Bazinga. Full circle. Read more

The Calipari Legacy

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports | 9 Comments

You hate broccoli or you love it. There is no middle ground or grey area. The same theory is applicable to coaches. Some people loathe the name Calipari while others celebrate it. Many were celebrating last night after Kentucky’s win over the Kansas Jayhawks.  Living in Memphis gave me first hand accounts of Calipari and his genius, nevermind the fact that I have played 18 holes of Putt-Putt behind he and his son only days after his hip surgery. Or the time he and his children were gallivanting around the 12th green at Galloway Golf Course while I accidentally rolled a few tee shots in their direction. During his tenure in Memphis he galvanized a city and created a culture unlike any other this city had seen. Then he left.

Name calling, disavowed allegiances were sworn, and hatred festered for a slick-haired Italian crook. Well, I for one did not participate in this mob-like mentality. He left for a better job. Get over it. Yes, I was disappointed that MY team no longer had his goon squad of recruiters or his charismatic demeanor that soothed and calmed every worry. He went to another Blue school, who desperately needed to win again. So what did he do? He won. He won a lot. Calipari still hasn’t lost in Rupp Arena. Memphis fans hate him because he’s winning elsewhere – his character never came into question when he was the orchestrator of the Tigers success. Read more
