Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse ? NLCS Preview posted at, saying, "Philadelphia Phillies and The Los Angeles Dodgers meet again in the National League Championship Series. One season ago it was the Philadelphia Phillies defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS in 5 games on their way to the World Series trophy. The magical run the Los Angeles Dodgers had was over, Joe Torre and Manny Ramirez were sent home a round earlier then expected by most."

Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse - ALCS Preview | posted at, saying, "The California Angels and New York Yankees are shaping up to be "teams of destiny" in the 2009 MLB playoffs.

The Phillies trailed the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-4 at home in Game 4 of the NLCS. It is the bottom of the ninth inning and Jimmy Rollins is up to bat. Rollins is batting with two outs and two men on base. Rollins then nails a fastball to the right-center, two guys score, game over, and the Phillies take a 3-1 lead in the series. This is truly playoff clutch hitting at its best."

Well we are 4 weeks into this 2009 season and as you all know its one quarter of the way finished. So what do we do when things are a quarter over? Well we grade them. Yes here it is, all 32 teams starting position guys and some extra players who get bulk work and how they have faired so far. This is thee must have measuring stick for your fantasy team. If you have A-Grade players you should be moving along nicely. However if you have F-Graded players, perhaps its time to view your bench or the waiver wire. So read up, enjoy, and scold those who come home with a bad report card!"

Eric Gargiulo presents NFL 2009 Season Week 5 Preview and Picks posted at, saying, "The Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals both have identical records and are coming off of disappointing weeks. Most importantly, the Bengals were able to pull out a win in OT even after struggling with the winless Cleveland Browns. The Ravens are still crying about their loss to the Patriots."

Eric Gargiulo presents NFL 0-4?Oh, no! posted at, saying, "I turn to the not so bright side of the NFL season. We see it virtually every year, and this is certainly no exception. There are always the teams a few weeks in who are absolutely winless. It' s painful to watch their games, as you really start to root for them, hoping they' ll pull it together and get at least one taste of sweet victory before the end of the season. Entering Week 4, there were seven of these winless teams. A Dolphins victory narrowed that down to six. For many of them, there isn' t much hope in sight."

Eric Gargiulo presents Beat The Shark NFL Pick ?Ems ? The Shark Looks For Back To Back Wins posted at, saying, "This weeks Beat the Shark Pick 'Ems contestant is a Philly native who currently resides in "Sin City", Las Vegas baby!

Eric Gargiulo presents Fantasy Football Week 5 Heroes and Zeroes posted at Best Fantasy Football Blogs, saying, "Matt Schaub – Schaub can be a very frustrating quarterback at times, as can be the coaching of Gary Kubiak. Schaub is one of those kinds of quarterbacks that like to throw in clunkers from time to time to remind you that you don’t own Drew Brees. The great thing about Schaub is that those clunkers rarely come two weeks in a row."

Ryan Popilchak presents NFL Hangover - Week 5 posted at Sports Opinionated, saying, "Summary of Week 5 NFL happenings."


Ryan Popilchak presents Battle of Alberta - Oct 9, 2009 posted at Sports Opinionated, saying, "The Battle of Alberta from October 9th, re-hashed from a the view of a true Alberta hockey fan."

Eric Gargiulo presents Is Roy Nelson A TUF Ringer? | posted at, saying, "The more UFC fights I see on The Ultimate Fighter, the more I start thinking about Roy Nelson. Nelson is 17-4, a former champion, former ADCC fighter, and yet he is competing with ex-NFL players and Kimbo Slice for a UFC deal. What is Nelson really doing there? I will tell you what he is doing there, he is a ringer!"

Eric Gargiulo presents Fixed on the Super Six | posted at, saying, "First off, I was completely appalled in only the first two fights of the “Super Six” six man round robin super middleweight tournament to crown the best “Super Middleweight” in the world. Aside from the “Six Super-Middleweights” (168 pounds) they chose, they left out undefeated IBF champ Lucian Bute, the “once beaten but has gotten better and wanted to be a part of it” in Allan Green, and then, the guy people thought got a raw deal in his fight with Bute, in super middle KO artist Andrade. Looking at the super middleweight Top 10, that’s leaving out numbers 2, 4, and 6."

Rod presents How to choose a tennis racket posted at Wilson Tennis Rackets, saying, "This guide to choosing a tennis racket explores some of the main features to look out for."
