Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

How the Chicago Blackhawks Made Me a Hockey Fan

USP NHL: STANLEY CUP FINAL-CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS AT B S HKN USA MA

Hockey, you sneaky devil. You timed it so well. You waited for the perfect Monday night—the NBA Finals are over, the most boring Bachelorette of all time is on, and you put me in the city of the new champions, the Chicago Blackhawks.

When I moved to Chicago, I took any chance I could to take subtle (or not so subtle) jabs at hockey, its fans, and its players. Now, three months later, I find myself writing a post about it, with fireworks continually shooting off on the streets outside, and with my heart still racing from that unbelievable finish in game 6. [Check out the highlights below. Chicago was 90 seconds away from losing and going to a Game 7 to determine the Champs when the unbelievable happened.]

Zakki Blatt Tours the USGA Museum

In honor of the U.S. Open this weekend, I found it appropriate to share this amazing story I saw on TV a couple days ago. This young man is a true testament to the underrated healing powers that sports can have on our souls. Zakki is a true inspiration and I’m really proud to be a part of the same First Tee organization that he represents so well.

Here is Zakki’s story: Read more

The 2012-2013 Memphis Grizzlies: A Reflection

Grizzlies

If you’re anything like me, you cringed as the Grizzlies’ 2012-2013 season came to an abrupt close, thanks to the marvelous and annoyingly efficient play of the San Antonio Spurs. Sure, every team’s season ends, but why ours? Why this way? Why, after all the talk of how Tony Allen would shut down LeBron James and how Big Spain and Z-Bo would maul Chris Bosh, did our season have to end in such a rude fashion? Read more

Coach Jayzor’s 2013 MLB Predictions

World Series - San Francisco Giants v Detroit Tigers - Game 4

Coach Jayzor’s 2nd Annual MLB Predictions

 Last year, I made my predictions before the season started, as all respectable prognosticators should. However, this year, life got busy, and I found myself two weeks into the season. A wise man once said, “Better late than never.” That was either Benjamin Franklin or Winston Churchill. At any rate, I have included the current standings and my predicted standings. In some cases, they are similar. In some cases, they are very different (See the AL East, where I have predicted the exact opposite of the current standings). If you read until the end of this post (which is quite a feat), you will be rewarded with my predictions for MVPs, Cy Young Awards, and World Series teams. Enjoy the predictions, and enjoy the season!

*NOTE: Current Standings are as of the morning of 4/17/13 (before any games were played).* Read more
