Tisha Dotson presents 100 Best College Sports Blogs posted at Online Blog.

Marcelo presents March Madness - East Region March 20th posted at March Madness Info.


Eric Gargiulo presents Who is the beast of the NL East? ? Part 1 posted at, saying, "Philadelphia Phillies - The back-to-back National League Champions are only better than they were last season when they went to the World Series. Their offense focused around extreme power has seen few speed bumps in their road to the playoffs and they finally have the front line pitcher to keep them ahead in the race."

Eric Gargiulo presents Who is the beast of the NL East? ? Part 1 posted at, saying, "The Florida Marlins are the sad kid in school that everyone feels sorry for. They have so much potential but no one there to look out for them. This team has practically no money in the bank, and anyone who is anyone in a Marlins uniform doesn’t need to waste his time unpacking in Miami, as they will be traded for cheaper options. This is a key reason that no fans show to games, keeping the team further in debt."


Eric Gargiulo presents College Basketball Odds ? Hurricanes look to blow away Hokies posted at, saying, "Miami Hurricanes vs Virginia Tech Hokies odds – Friday, March 12, 2:00 PM ET. Freshman Reggie Johnson had the game of his life as the Hurricanes pasted Wake Forest 83-62 on Thursday, hitting all eight of his field-goal attempts, and he went 6-of-6 at the foul line for a season-high 22 points. James Dews added 15 points for the Hurricanes, who shot 51.7% from the floor while holding the Demon Deacons to 35.1%, including 4-of-17 from beyond the arc."

Eric Gargiulo presents Bracket Racket: Talking The NCAA Tournament posted at, saying, "It is NCAA March Madness time again. Attention all bosses or managers etc., let's not give Bill from accounting a hard time today, he has brackets to fill out, like just about every other red-blooded American does this time of year."

Eric Gargiulo presents NCAA Tournament First Round Odds and Picks posted at, saying, "Butler ran the table in the Horizon League going 18-0 and wasn’t really challenged along the way. Led by G/F Gordon Hayward (15.4 points, 8.5 rebounds), F Matt Howard (12.3 points, 5.4 rebounds) and G Shelvin Mack (13.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists) the Bulldogs are a small team and don’t have a true center. Butler’s veteran presence and extreme ball movement skills will be up against a physical bunch in the University of Texas El-Paso Miners."

Eric Gargiulo presents March Madness Betting – Battle of The Tigers posted at, saying, "Missouri Tigers vs Clemson Tigers odds – Friday, March 19, 2:45 PM ET. The Tigers, a tenth seed in the East region, stumbled down the Big 12 stretch, losing three of their last four, and their lone win came in overtime at lowly Iowa State. Mizzou is a run-and-gun team that shoots three-pointers at a 37.1% clip, and the main gunners are Kim English and Marcus Denmon."

AndrosenDsouza presents 50 Unbelievable Sports Clips on YouTube Worth Watching posted at Sports Management Degree, saying, "If you have a little extra time on your hands, you might want to watch some sports bloopers, amazing extreme sports and some of the best football tackles of all time. No need to spend time searching, though, as we’ve already compiled a list of 50 unbelievable sports clips from YouTube."

Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Betting Lines- Orlando Magic vs. Atlanta Hawks posted at, saying, "The Orlando Magic are playing some of their best basketball of the season down the stretch, winning three straight and nine of their last ten games to pull away from both the Boston Celtics and the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern conference."


Michael presents 2011 Offensive Lineman Michael Bennett is Weighing Every Option posted at eScoutRoom, saying, "Michael Bennett is quickly receiving many scholarship offers to become a member of the biggest 2011 football recruiting classes."

Diane Steward presents Top 50 Official Blogs by Professional Athletes posted at sports management, saying, "Technology and the Internet have made it possible for professional athletes to interact with fans via blogs and through social media, like Twitter. Indeed, some sports agents encourage blogging and social media use by professional athletes as a way to further promote the “brand.”"

Eric Gargiulo presents Craigslist Cleveland Browns Style? From Bad To Worse posted at, saying, "Usually when something starts to turn, “brown” it means it is going stale. Most fruits and vegetables tend to get that way when they are about to expire. Apparently when football goes bad it also turns “brown” as in the Cleveland Browns. Can you just imagine this Craigslist ad in Cleveland, Ohio under Free Stuff: “Free stuff not needed, first come first serve. We need to unload all Quarterbacks, Half-Backs, Wide Receivers, Line-backers etc. Everything must go by April 22nd. Will also accept your unwanted draft picks. For details contact Mike”."

Morgan Schwartz presents Beef It Up! posted at - Local Writing from the Heartland, saying, "thanks!"


Eric Gargiulo presents Philadelphia Flyers Woes Continue posted at, saying, "Since the Olympic break, the Philadelphia Flyers have been 4-1-1. Before the break the Flyers were in the 8 games prior were 6-2. Those numbers are misleading by many standards. The Flyers were maybe the hottest team in the NHL prior to the break."

Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Betting Preview: Montreal Canadiens vs. New York Rangers posted at, saying, "The Montreal Canadiens and the New York Rangers are two teams in search of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The sports betting world remembers these two teams at the beginning of the season when both were having a difficult time winning games. With all of the March Madness odds going on, the fact that both teams are now looking towards the playoffs can sometimes be lost. The sportsbook reviews for this upcoming Canadiens at Rangers game are much different than they were at the beginning of the season."

Eric Gargiulo presents Injury Bug Plagues Philadelphia Flyers posted at, saying, "Philadelphia Flyers lost Michael Leighton late in the first period of Wednesday March 16, 2010 game against Nashville Predators. Leighton was making a save and fell backwards onto his leg. Leighton later said he heard a “pop” noise while falling. A pop noise is never good in an injury. This could possibly be ligaments or tendons, which take weeks to heal."

Eric Gargiulo presents No Fire Power Flyers posted at, saying, "On Sunday night the Philadelphia Flyers squared off against the Atlanta Thrashers. After taking a beating in Atlanta the night before, the Flyers knew they needed to come firing the puck. Before the game Flyer's Coach Peter Laviolette addressed this by changing his lines."

Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Game Preview: Penguins vs. Capitals posted at, saying, "While sports betting experts debate the newest March madness odds, the NHL races towards the playoffs with the lower-tiered teams fighting for their playoff lives. At the top of the heap are many of the same teams that were top contenders last year. At the very top of the price per head odds for winning the Stanley Cup are the Washington Capitals and the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins."

Eric Gargiulo presents Injury Bug Bites Philadelphia Flyers Again posted at, saying, "During the Philadelphia Flyers vs. Atlanta Thrashers game on March 21, 2010 Jeff Carter was blocking a shot and took a puck to the side of his left foot. Carter stated, "It was a harmless play, kind of took one off the side. I went home last night and it started getting worse and worse."


Eric Gargiulo presents Rumor: Rich Franklin In, Tito Ortiz Out of TUF 11 posted at, saying, "News broke over the last few days that Rich Franklin replaced Tito Ortiz during the tapings of The Ultimate Fighter season 11. Further news indicates that Chuck Liddell vs. Rich Franklin is all but set for UFC 115 with the future of Tito Ortiz in serious doubt."

Eric Gargiulo presents Dana White Was Right About Fedor Emelianenko posted at, saying, "I have been fairly critical of UFC president Dana White over the last year. My criticism was at an all-time high when negotiations between the UFC and Fedor Emelianenko broke down last year. However, seven moths later and it looks like Dana White was correct all along about Fedor, M-1, and those “crazy Russians.”"

Eric Gargiulo presents UFC on Versus: Preview and Predictions posted at, saying, "This Sunday the UFC debuts on a network other than Spike TV: Versus (congratulations to any DirecTV subscribers reading). This will be the first of two shows on the cable-owned sports network and could help send more eyeballs to sibling WEC’s shows in the future. I’ve already had my first shot of Jameson (Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone, btw) so let’s get to the main card:"

James O'Connor presents Converse Trainers - Information & Review posted at UK Designer Fashion Blog - Designer Clothing Info - Men's & Women's Brands, saying, "Information about Converse trainers, one of the leading brands of mens and womens trainers worldwide."

Eric Gargiulo presents UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste Photo Shoot posted at, saying, "Ariannay Celeste has become one of, if not the most popular UFC Octagon Girl of the crew. In addition to her ring girl duties for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Arianny Celeste is also a fitness model. Check out this fun video of the beautiful Arianny Celeste on a recent photo shoot."

Brutusreport Blogspot Sports Carnival - March 11, 2010

Welcome to the March 11, 2010 edition of Brutusreport Blogspot Sports Carnival. We have some great stories once again from many of the popular writers and some new ones. Eric Gargiulo starts off with some NFL free agent articles including one on the most memorable Eagles trades. Eric also looks at two running backs that might get another chance but might be done, LaDainian Tomlinson and Brian Westbrook. Steve Patterson has an article on Ohio State rapping up their Basketball season on top of the Big Ten and wants to know if the NHL can capitalize on the success of the Olympic Hockey gold matches. Finally, Harold Gelien has 50 athletes you can follow on Twitter. Sounds like a lot of fun seeing what these great athletes are doing on a daily basis. Make sure to bookmark, share, and come back in 14 days for another edition.

Eric Gargiulo presents Looking Back At Ten Philadelphia Eagles Memorable Trades posted at, 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." presents Sports Injuries and Chiropractic Treatment posted at Marshall Chiropractic.


Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Preview ? Grizzlies vs. Hornets Matchups posted at, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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."

Neven Szary presents Crosby vs. Ovechkin ? Case Closed posted at Eastern Invasion, saying, "Sidney Crosby vs. Alexander Ovechkin. The debate rages on."

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."

Bruce Hollingdrake presents “Leafs are finally on the road to recovery.” | The Hockey Writers posted at The Hockey Writers, saying, "Thanks for the effort with this."


Anthony Stewart presents Top 50 College Rankings Blogs posted at online university rankings 2010, saying, "If you are looking to learn more about what different colleges have to offer, you can check with these top 50 college rankings blogs that can give you an idea of what is available."

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."

Samantha Marks presents Guide To Buying Softball Gloves posted at TheProSportsFan.


Eric Gargiulo presents UFC Fighter Frank Mir Gets It posted at, saying, "The MMA world has been buzzing for a week following comments made by UFC fighter Frank Mir. 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."
