Macarena presents 2009: The Year of the Side Chick posted at On The Inside Sports.

Engelbert Hudson presents 50 Free Online Educational Games That Are More Fun Than You’d Think posted at How To E-D-U.

FavreDollarFootlongs presents I Live For the Moment posted at Favre Dollar Footlongs, saying, "The column discusses the moments in sports that are unforgettable and can never be taken away from us, no matter what or who is involved."


Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse: The Beltre-ville Horror posted at, saying, "My beloved Boston Red Sox came to terms with Adrian Beltre on a 1 year/$9 million deal, with a player option for 2011 for $5 million. While that news is not surprising (or important enough to break through as one of the top stories on’s front page…), it is significant to Red Sox fans, Yankees fans, Mike Lowell fans, and fans who think that money is wasted in Major League Baseball."

Eric Gargiulo presents The Ultimate ?Unit? Of Measurement ? Looking At Randy Johnson posted at, saying, "As the 2009 MLB season drew to a close, many were already wondering about big name free agents, and wondering about certain plyaers that may or may not be able to help their teams in 2010. A name that many had to consider, much the way they had for the last 20 years, was the ageless wonder, 6 foot 10 inch Randy Johnson. Yes he is 46 years old, but he still had that same mound presence last year as a member of the San Francisco Giants. The only problem here is that Johnson has decided to hang it up, and end a brilliant but often misunderstood career."


Eric Gargiulo presents The Most Memorable NFL Game Of The Decade posted at, saying, "Over the course of a decade, there have been many memorable and great NFL games. Super Bowls, playoff upsets, and even some historic regular season meetings that were about more than a win or a loss. In looking back at the decade I can only think of one NFL game that meant more to the decade than any other. It wasn’t a Super Bowl, nor was it even a conference playoff game. When you think of all of the NFL games played in the last ten years, I can’t think of a game with more ramifications and controversy over the decade than the infamous “Tuck Rule Game.”"

Eric Gargiulo presents NFL Week 17 Preview and Picks posted at, saying, "The biggest game of the week takes place Sunday afternoon in Dallas, Texas. The new Texas Stadium will host the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles playing for the NFC East title. Both teams have already clinched playoff spots, but the post season road for each team would be much easier with a win. For the Cowboys, they will be guaranteed a home game. For the Eagles, they can clinch the overall second spot and would only play one game on the road in New Orleans if the Saints win their divisional game. Needless to say, both teams have plenty to play for and nobody will be sitting starters in Texas."

Steve Patterson presents Wisconsin Puts the Hurt on Miami to Score for the Big Ten posted at BrutusReport, saying, "The Badgers finished the year with 10 wins after a disappointing season last year."

Steve Patterson presents What to look for in New Years Day bowl games. posted at FryingPan Sports, saying, "Auburn is the better team that played a better schedule and will win."

Eric Gargiulo presents The Tim Tebow Reality Check posted at, saying, "The Gator faithful have been out in full force since the Sugar Bowl. Tim Tebow has turned into the hottest NFL prospect since Peyton Manning. The hype machine is at an all-time high for Saint Tim. Yet the reality of the situation for Tebow fans is that the Sugar Bowl means absolutely nothing about the future NFL prospects of Tim Tebow."

Steve Patterson presents What to look for in the BcS Championship game. posted at FryingPan Sports, saying, "I expect a low scoring game. I don’t see either team exploding offensively. The over/under is 45 and the under is the best bet. The line is Bama by 4. I expect them to win but it may be closer than that."

Steve Patterson presents Pentello and Gibson Leaving, Heyward and Chekwa Staying posted at BrutusReport, saying, "Gibson choose to enter the 2010 NFL draft instead of coming back for his senior season."

Eric Gargiulo presents NFL Wild Card Preview and Picks posted at, saying, "Let’s start out with the game that hits closest to my heart between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. After being declared the hottest team in the NFC, the Eagles reminded fans like me why we can’t trust them in certain situations. Rivalry game, on the road, second seed on the line, and the Eagles decided to take their Bye Week early. The Dallas Cowboys spanked the birds at home and locked up the NFC East, and a home game this weekend with last week’s drubbing."

Eric Gargiulo presents NFL Head Coaching Cash For Clunkers posted at, saying, "Pete Carroll being hired by the Seattle Seahawks with a generous amount of personnel control is yet another example of a team enamored with name over facts. The next time an NFL head coach wants a raise he is better off tanking a season, getting fired, and getting rehired somewhere else."

Eric Gargiulo presents The Annual Philadelphia Eagles Postmortem Blog posted at, saying, "Here we go again. It looks like it is time for the annual Philadelphia Eagles postmortem blog. For the fourth straight year I sit here in disgust and disappointment as a birds fan. The obvious two names up for discussion here are the head coach and the quarterback. Are we better off without one, the other or both? Unfortunately while a valid question it is one without much merit after the coach’s latest contract extension."

Eric Gargiulo presents Are the Olympics A Peter Forsberg Showcase? posted at, saying, "Peter Forsberg is currently enjoying a good season with Modo Hockey in Sweden where he has 19 points in 18 games. It was also recently announced that Forsberg will be added to Swedens olympic team that will be on display in Vancouver this February. Forsberg has collected two gold medals with the team and is considered the team’s unsung leader. I post a question to all of you though; Are the Olympic games one last go around for Swedens biggest NHL hero, or is it an NHL showcase for teams to see if he still has anything left in the tank, and is worth signing to a contract for a potential playoff team?"


Rob presents Tips for Finding the Best Beginner Bike posted at Beginner Cycling, saying, "Cycling can be a great, low-impact workout to get fit in the New Year!"

SS presents Today?s Climate and What It Means for Winter Sports in 2009-2010 posted at Ski Snowboarder.

Eric Gargiulo presents Howard Stern Announces Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant posted at, saying, "Howard Stern announced today that he will hold a $100,000 Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant on his radio show. Could this turn out to be one of the biggest stories of 2010 or a failed attempt to ride out into the sunset after 30+plus years of broadcasting?"

Cheryl Ragsdale presents Mixed Martial Arts: Best Skill Set for a Fighter? - The Sports Chat Place posted at Sports Chat Place, saying, "Which is the best skill set for Mixed Martial Arts? Wrestling? Brazilian Jiu Jitsu? Striking? One woman shares her opinion."

Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse: Calling out Mayweather posted at, saying, "According to, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum announced that, “The fight’s off.” The fight in question is the potential super-duper-mega-huge match between the two best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Both fresh off of impressive victories in 2009 and both saying they want this fight to happen. The deal that was on the table would, most likely, not only shatter pay-per-view records and generate a possible $200 million in revenue, but net each fighter in the neighborhood of $40 million each. Each! And you can’t iron out details for $40M?"

Eric Gargiulo presents UFC Fight Night 20 Preview and Predictions posted at, saying, "The main event, Gray Maynard vs. Nate Diaz is not only a grudge match, but may hold lightweight title shot implications should Maynard pull out the victory. Now, I only say "grudge" since Diaz subbed Maynard during season 5 of The Ultimate Fighter, knocking him out of the tournament."

reesan presents Aussie Rules Football Enlists First Ever Japanese-Born Player posted at loneleeplanet, saying, "some international sporting news perhaps?"
