It’s Fake News that LeBron Beat Jordan’s Consecutive Games of 10+ Points Streak.

876 consecutive games scoring 10+ points for Lebron James sounds really great. He just broke MJ’s record of 866 games scoring 10+ points. Or did he? There is a very important factor that nobody is mentioning. This is a regular season record. This record does not include the MOST IMPORTANT GAMES. The games played in ...

Josh Allen Crushed the Wonderlic, What Can’t This Guy Do?

Tall? Check. Rocket Arm? Check. Big Hands? Check. Took snaps under center in college? Check. Josh Allen has been checking off all the boxes and now he can check one more. The Genius Box. That’s right Josh Allen is a genius as far as I’m concerned after scoring a 37 on the Wonderlic test. Ok, ...

A-Train Makes a Magic Wand.

I was listening to The Last Podcast on the Left. I don’t remember the episode, but they were talking about the concept of magic and magical items. To make a long story short, magic is real, (probably) and anyone can make a magic wand. If I had a working magic wand back in 2012, I ...

Tom Fornelli Thinks Vince Young is the Biggest Bust QB of the BCS Era.

First, let me say that I like and respect Tom Fornelli. I listen to his college football podcast and he provides good insight. On March 23rd Tom came with a take so hot that I hesitate to even touch it. In his “Friday Five” he listed the five biggest busts of the BCS era at ...

A-Train Nation Update.

What’s up, guys? A-Train here to apologize for lack of recent posting amidst the NCAA tourney. I am working on some new updates/upgrades to the website, including adding podcasts and video. I am a one-man operation over here and I have to teach myself how to do all the technical stuff. It takes time, and ...

The Year of the Dog: UMBC Retrievers are 1st 16-Seed to Knock Off a 1-Seed in History.

I’m a superstitious fellow when it comes to sports. We recently entered the year of the dog on the Chinese zodiac. I jokingly suggested to a friend that you should take as many dog mascot teams in the NCAA tourney as possible. I should have listened to my own advice. A team named the Retrievers that nobody ...

Friday Sports Dump: NCAA Hoops and NFL Free Agency.

Let’s start in the NFL where the Chicago Bears finally did the inevitable and cut Mike Glennon, news first reported here. No word yet on who is going to overpay Glennon in 2018, but if Sammy Sleeves contract is any indication then giraffe neck Glennon is going to be just fine. The Bears also cut a ...

The Chicago Bears are Getting Mitch Some Playmakers / WTF Arizona.

The Bears have agreed to deals with Allen Robinson and Trey Burton and I am very excited. I wanted Jarvis Landry to the Bears and I felt a surge of disappointment when he was traded to the Browns, but given what the Bears want to do on offense Allen Robinson might be a better fit. He ...

The Official Bracket of ATrainSports.

It’s March Madness time to fill out your bracket. Each year I seem to get worse and worse at filling these out. The brackets filled out in my late teens and early twenties were money. Lately, I have pretty much gotten kicked in the teeth every March. I’m going to try and turn it around ...

The 2018 Oscars Are Tonight. Let’s Talk About The 1996 Oscars, Because Movies Were Better Then.

First, let me say I hate how they do the Oscars in regards to the 2018 Oscars are actually awards for the movies of 2017. It’s confusing, so when I say I want to talk about the 1996 Oscars, that means the films released in the 1995 calendar year. I firmly believe that the high ...
