Eric Gargiulo presents Looking Back At Ten Philadelphia Eagles Memorable Trades posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The Philadelphia Eagles have had some major success throughout the history of the franchise when it comes to trades. Some of the biggest names in Eagles history have donned the green as a result of a simple telephone transaction. Yet, not all trades have ended up in the Eagles' favor. It’s fair to say that when they get it right, they get it right, and when they screw it up, they really screw it up."
Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Preview ? Grizzlies vs. Hornets Matchups posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "This Wednesday, two teams that are fighting an uphill battle for the final playoff spot in the NBA Western Conference will square-off on Bourbon Street where the New Orleans Hornets play host to the Memphis Grizzlies."
Eric Gargiulo presents College Basketball Betting – Orangemen look to stay No.1 posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Syracuse Orangemen vs Louisville Cardinals odds – The No.1 Orangemen (28-2, 15-2) have won four straight since losing at home to Louisville, and their 85-66 romp at St. John’s was their third straight win by double digits. Arinze Onuaku led an attack of five Syracuse players in double figures."
Steve Patterson presents Ohio State Men’s Basketball Win a Share of the Big Ten Title posted at BrutusReport, saying, "The Buckeyes return to the top of the Big Ten with a #1 seed in the upcoming tournament and a share, at least, of the conference title."
Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Betting ? Grizzlies vs. Celtics Preview posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The Memphis Grizzlies had such a bright start to the 2009 season but they have been skating downhill ever since. They were five games over .500 on February 1st and were competing for a playoff spot in the Western Conference playoff race."
Eric Gargiulo presents L.T. & B’West: Deadly Combo or Duds In The Water? posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Is it football season already?! Less than a month after The New Orleans Saints pulled off the impossible in lifting the Lombardi, both LaDanian Tomlinson and Brian Westbrook are looking for new homes. Both have lead amazing careers in the NFL. Both have tasted playoff victories, with Westbrook going to the Super Bowl with the Eagles. One more thing in common? They both have had injuries that have kept them off the field. A team that is struggling right now is considering this a miracle. Is it the answer a team like the Lions or Redskins are looking for? Or are both number 21 and 36 a little too late to be a threat?"
Eric Gargiulo presents Love Me Tender – NFL Free Agency Begins posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Football fans who feel sad about the fact the season has ended, this is for you. Yes no sooner did the Saints and Colts walk off the Super Bowl field did the football buzz come right back around with scouting combines, rumors, lockouts, salary caps and of course the biggie (with no disrespect to draft day) NFL Free Agency!"
Eric Gargiulo presents An Early Look At NFL Free Agency posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "We are just days into NFL free agency and the frenzy continues throughout the league. Within a matter of hours the NFL’s hottest free agent was signed, while other teams look to sit pat in something of a holding mode. It may only be March but a series of moves may have changed the balance of power between some NFL pretenders and contenders coming into what could be the last season before an NFL lock out."
Harold Gelien presents Top 50 Pro Athletes on Twitter Worth Following posted at sports management, saying, "The top 50 pro athletes listed were based upon their Twitter popularity, but the number of the most popular sports is limited to ten, and baseball and tennis are combined for a total of five Twitter users in those two sports."
Eric Gargiulo presents Waahhh! Derek Anderson Is Mad! posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "I've witnessed Michael Irvin get a standing ovation for getting injured in Philadelphia and I've also seen Donovan McNabb get benched for having a horrible game but bounce back and win another. These guys never said one ill word towards the fans, but Mr. Derek Anderson has."
Eric Gargiulo presents Canada Wins Olympic Gold; Gets Revenge on Team USA posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Team Canada knew deep down the moment they lost to USA earlier in the tournament that they would meet them again in the Finals for the Gold. With that in mind, they knew they had to play a solid game, and not make the same mistakes the USA had been making during the tournament. Boy did they deliver. Canada came out in the Gold Medal game ready to play and immediately brought it to Team USA as they did in the previous game they lost to USA. USA did not show up to play in the first period."
Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Betting ? Tuesday Game Previews posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the best teams in the Western Conference and while one of their key stars, Patrick Kane, is sour from missing out on a gold medal in the Winter Olympics, he’ll still have a chance at another prize if his team keeps it up in the NHL."
Steve Patterson presents Will the NHL build on the US interest in Olympic Hockey? No. posted at FryingPan Sports, saying, "Bill is every optimistic about the outcome of the increased interest in hockey after Canada met the US in the Winter Olympics and tv ratings reached an all time high."

Harold Gelien presents 25 Fun Video Games for Health and Fitness Nuts posted at BSN to MSN, saying, "If you doubt the veracity of video games for health, fitness and even for pain management, you might think again when you realize the fun you can have while working towards better overall well being."
Words2Words presents Empathy: My Take on Tiger posted at What If - Editorials and opinions covering popular culture., saying, "Tiger Woods screwed up. He's paying for it, and will continue to pay for it. So, why is it that people need to condemn him even more and wish the worst possible fate upon the guy? Can't we give it a rest?"
Natalie Thomas presents 100 Excellent, Inspiring Career Coaches on Twitter posted at Online Degree, saying, "For recent college graduates, the job search once a degree has been conferred stands almost as stressful as higher education itself. The listed career coaches host an active feed that serves as a handy support for a multitude of different professional needs."

Mir’s comments specifically about wishing death upon current UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar have set off a fire storm. The UFC and MMA community responded with outrage and some in disappointment with Mir’s tone. However at the end of the day Frank Mir proves once again why he drew the biggest buyrate in UFC history and is one of the few that truly gets the show."
