The Celtics are now 8-2 when they score 100 points or more, and even though their NBA betting odds depend on their defense, Boston is showing that they can fill the basket as well."

Eric Gargiulo presents Fantasy Football Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups posted at, saying, "Quinton Ganther, Washington Redskins - I picked up Ganther last week but didn't trust him to start. I got burnt as Ganther had 21 points last week and was the first Redskin running back to start and get goal line carries in a long time. I learned my lesson, and yet he is still available in most leagues off of the waiver/free agent wire. Ganther has a fantastic matchup this Sunday against the New York Giants. The Philadelphia Eagles ran all over the Giants Sunday night. As a matter of a fact, everyone has run on the Giants this season. I love his matchup, and he is one of the few backs in the entire league to get the ball as both a feature and red zone back."

Steve Patterson presents What did we learn from week 14 in the NFL? posted at FryingPan Sports, saying, "The Cowboys took a major hit with their loss to the Chargers. With the wins over the Giants the Birds took control of their division."

Eric Gargiulo presents Week of WWE Wrestling: 11/28/2009 to 12/05/2009 | posted at, saying, "Who should be Raw's guest host on Jan. 4? For wrestling fans these days, it would be huge for if the Rock or "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is the guest host.

Eric Gargiulo presents Another Bias HBO Boxing Show posted at, saying, "HBO should come up with their own title, as they come up with their own facts, instead of stating them like opinions. In what ruined a great show, was the announcing team of HBO, this time it was the more annoying presence of Max Kellerman that was ranting about his "thoughts" that he states as fact. First, Chris Arreola was scheduled to fight club level Brian Minto in a comeback for Arreola, after losing to Vitali Klitschko. Max Kellerman would go on to review the heavyweight division, and say that the way to become a heavyweight champion, the only way, is to beat one of the Klitschko Brothers."

UFC 107 lived up the hype with decisive finishes, great fights, lots of blood, and dominant performances. BJ Penn and Frank Mir both looked tremendous in their wins at UFC 107. Unlike recent UFC shows, there were no questionable decisions…just questionable futures."

Dick Lafrance presents My Sports Heroes posted at My Thoughts on the World of Sports, saying, "Growing up during the 1960's and 70's I was fascinated by sports by the 4 major sports and their athletes."

Rose King presents 100 Cool Coffee Hacks for College Students posted at Online

Eric Gargiulo presents Iron Mike Tyson: Boxing After Prison posted at, saying, "When Mike Tyson was in prison public consensus was that he was still the best heavyweight, dare I say, boxer, on the planet. When he was released from prison he already signed for millions of dollars with Don King for his return to the ring.

Cheryl Ragsdale presents 10 Reasons Why Female Bodybuilding is the Greatest Sport posted at That Girl is Funny, saying, "Renee Willis, female Figure Competitive Bodybuilder, shares her thoughts on the sport of bodybuilding – how she got into it and why she does it. It’s a sport of muscle and high heel shoes, hair, make-up, accessories, having the right suit, having the right color suit - a sport of conditioning – a sport where too much conditioning could be your detriment and too little conditioning could be equally detrimental.

Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Betting - Free-scoring Lakers host stingy Bulls | posted at, saying, "The Bulls have won two in a row, although that probably won’t be enough to make them NBA betting favorites on the West Coast. They’re having some troubles scoring with only one 100-point game so far this year, but their defense is stellar as the Bulls are sixth in points allowed. The Bulls were hurt by an early-season injury to Derrick Rose, who is the key to their NBA betting odds, but John Salmons and Taj Gibson have been coming on as of late as well. Rose averaged 25.0 points in two games against the Lakers last year."


Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse – NFL Week 11 Preview & Picks | posted at, saying, "Starting off with a very important game in the NFC between two struggling teams that had high hopes going into the 2009 season.

Steve Patterson presents Happy Thanksgiving?The NFL Provides the Turkeys posted at FryingPan Sports, saying, "Unless he continues to improve his passing, defenses will adjust to the Young led O and stop this version of the team as well."

Eric Gargiulo presents Beat The Shark Wrap Up Plus Other Tidbits From NFL Week 12 posted at, saying, "Well despite the terrific efforts of last weeks contestant, Miss Candice Albanese, “The Shark” was back in the winners circle, and of course back to brag about it. With a big 3-1 record on the week, thanks to winning picks the Buccaneers, Seahawks and Titans, “The Shark” was able to lift the picks record to 21-18-1 and take a 6-5 lead over the ladies. Candice did a pretty good job as well, going 2-2 as she had winners with the Colts and the Vikings, but fell with the Dolphins losing to the Bills and the Eagles were unable to cover against the Redskins. So now with that the women are back to .500 with a record of 20-20. Oh so maybe it is time for the tie break against myself and the Albanese girls. Sister Karyn got me in week 3, and I took down Candice in week 12. Hmmm, perhaps a me vs. both in a week or 2? Anyway it goes to show once again that beauty does not always beat the beast! Nice efforts Candice, but you’ve been Shark Bit!"

Eric Gargiulo presents Is Bute Superior to the Super Six? | posted at, saying, "If the Six Man tournament in the Super Middleweight Division is not enough to shake it up, how about a rematch, and we all wanted one, because the first was so controversial, between undefeated IBF champ Lucian Bute and Librado Andrade. They showed what happened in their first fight. Max Kellerman said Bute got knocked out twice and won the fight, and it was the worst kind of hometown refereeing he has ever seen. It’s true, but besides Emanuel Augustus getting robbed and jobbed in Burton’s hometown on ESPN, this fight was for a title on a pay network. They had a clock and showed that instead of a ten count Bute got a 21 count. Kellerman also said that Andrade should be the champion. So there is a compelling match up between the “other” super middleweight champion. In the tournament, now, we have undefeated Andre Ward with the WBA title, and undefeated Carl Froch with the WBC title. Well here was undefeated IBF champ Bute trying to state his claim that he is the best."

Dick Lafrance presents Some Athlete Websites posted at My Thoughts on the World of Sports, saying, "'m going to take a bit of a break from my normal blog posting and present some Websites from some sports figures."

Dick Lafrance presents Some Athletes Websites – Part 2 posted at My Thoughts on the World of Sports, saying, "n my last post, I presented some Websites of athletes from the sports of baseball and football.
