Eric Gargiulo presents Tailgating And Drinking Nightmares. Why Are fans Killing Phillies Baseball? posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Before this story even begins I feel the need to start with this disclaimer. I enjoy some tailgating, the smell of freshly barbecued food, a nice ice-cold beer and the company of fans and friends alike. Nothing starts off an event like some fun games, some music, and yes maybe even getting a little bit tipsy. Hey I’m human, and like most I love a good party. However what has been going on lately before, during and after Phillies games at Citizens Bank Park, is no party!"

Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse: Should the Pittsburgh Steelers draft a QB at 18? posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "With all the latest “Big Ben” drama coming out of Pittsburgh in the last month and a potential suspension on the rise, one has to wonder as we are days away from the NFL Draft whether or not the Pittsburgh Steelers will go out and select a Quarterback with their 18th overall pick. Ben Roethlisberger is going to get suspended from the NFL without a doubt. If he does not for some reason Roger Goodell will be looking at a ton of backlash from the media, fans and support groups alike."

Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Game 1 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "This Easter Conference semi-final match-up is not one that the sports betting experts saw coming at all. The NHL odds had the Boston Bruins losing to the Buffalo Sabres in the first round, and the Philadelphia Flyers were not even supposed to have a chance against the New Jersey Devils. But this NHL game preview is about a game one between two teams that wanted it more than the favorites did. It is also about how unpredictable NHL playoff betting can really be."

Eric Gargiulo presents Does UFC have a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Blockbuster? posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The Floyd Mayweather vs. Shane Mosley boxing fight is predicted to do 1.5 million buys. That number is just short of UFC’s biggest show, UFC 100. Early estimates for a Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight are between two and three million buys. With such a big Mega Fight on the table in boxing, one has to wonder if the UFC can deliver the same numbers for MMA?"
