I decided to check in on former ESPN Superstar Jay Mariotti. What’s my most hated sportswriter of all-time up too these days? ( Bill Plaschke is lucky that Jay Mariotti is around or I’d turn my hate on him)   He’s keeping busy! Good for Jay! He is hosting a National Podcast. How is that ...

Did this Nebraska fan poop her pants on National TV?

I’ve had this little clip in my phone since before this blog began. I just “re-discovered” it and I feel like it’s too hilarious not to share. It’s from Illinois @ Nebraska Oct. 1, 2016.   I’ll let you guys be the judge but I say we have a clear cut case of pooped in ...
