10 Years Ago Today, The Perfect End to a Perfect Game.

This time of year is the sports doldrums, there is very little to get excited about. I mean all we have is Baseball, and Baseball isn’t exactly thrilling. Except for when it is. Ten years ago today was one of those thrilling times. It was when Mark Buehrle pitched the 18th perfect game in MLB ...

NBA Free Agency: A Beautiful New League.

It’s been a minute since my last sports-related blog but NBA free agency came in like a bat out of hell and reset the NBA. This is a glorious day. No longer is it the Warriors (if they stay healthy) and everyone else. THIS LEAGUE. We have Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant to thank for ...

Hey A-Train, what about Sansa? Hey A-Train, what about Arya? Hey A-Train, what about Hot Pie? Hey A-Train, what about Brienne of Tarth? I’m getting to them, Jennifer! We pick up with Sansa I think somewhere around when she makes Ramsay dog food. Sansa is becoming the woman her mother wanted her to be, a ...
