Mea Culpa: The Train’s Worst Takes So Far…

This website has been around long enough for me to start owning my mistakes. So without further ado, I present some of my works takes thus far. The Titanic of Bad Takes: The Rams will be so bad that Todd Gurley won’t be worth keeping in fantasy.  Coming out of the gates hot with a ...

Jalen Hurts Isn’t Getting His Job Back. It’s Tua Time in Tuscaloosa.

That was a mic drop of a TD pass. It was one of three that Tua Tagovailoa tossed in relief of the ineffectual Jalen Hurts. The Tide were dead in the water at halftime if something didn’t change down 13-0 to Georgia. WHAT. A. GAME. Tua Tagovailoa to DeVonta Smith … BALLGAME!!!@AlabamaFTBL WINS THE NATIONAL ...

Alabama vs Georgia: Breaking Down the Matchups. Plus Final Prediction.

One thing is perfectly clear from my gambling picks in the semifinals, I’m not digging deep enough. I need to go beyond the X’s and O’s and really see who has the true advantage when it comes to Alabama vs Georgia. Mascots: Crimson Tide vs Bulldogs.  Alabama is the Crimson Tide the mascot, however, is an ...

Seattle Man Eats Two Bags of M&M’s Labeled “Sharing Size” in One Sitting & Lives to Tell His Tale.

No, this isn’t “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” but in fact a true story straight from A-Train HQ where one of our reporter’s (me) got the scoop on a local rebel, who defied the Mars Corporation’s recommendations to share his bags of M&M’s. (also me) You see we no longer live in a land where ...

New Year, Same Beak, Get it Wet. College Playoff Picks.

I have been talking about the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl for weeks now. This group of 4 teams is so close that picking winners are proving to be very difficult. In the Rose Bowl really no outcome would shock me. I usually ALWAYS go with the team built like Georgia, the team built around ...

Why is ABC Bringing Back Roseanne?

Am I taking crazy pills or is ABC actually bringing Roseanne back to television? Who was clamoring for more Roseanne Barr? I just assumed her character and John Goodman’s would have both succumbed to heart disease by 2018 but apparently, they are alive and well. I remember watching Roseanne as a kid and thinking it ...

Wet the Beak: The Final Countdown.

Que the Music. Cotton Bowl: I covered this game but the line has moved considerably. The line in the Cotton Bowl has now moved heavily towards Ohio State, I was actually expecting this, but not to this degree, it has gone to as high as -9.5 points. That really worries me now, is it public ...

Tiny Wet the Beak: Thursday + Friday Bowl Picks

Another addition of “Wet the Beak” My apologies for not getting picks in for the games on Wednesday. Military Bowl: Virgina vs Navy I don’t have a solid play on this game. It’s supposed to be cold, it’s the Military Bowl, I would think that favors Navy. Virgina opened as the favorite but it’s been ...

A-Train Eats: Sister’s Stew, A Christmas Tradition is Born.

Today we have a very special edition of my favorite segment: A-Train Eats. I plan to make a recipe directly out of the text of A Dance with Dragons the 5th novel of George R.R. Martin’s epic A Song of Ice and Fire.  Throughout A Song of Ice and Fire Martin gives his reader’s detailed descriptions of ...

RIP to The Legendary Dick Enberg & WTB Bowl Season Part II.

Before we get into this week’s “Wet the Beak” I need to pay tribute to the great Dick Enberg who passed away yesterday at the age of 82. There are very few voices more recognizable to the sports fan of the last 40+ years than Dick Engberg’s. If you were a sports fan then at ...
