Rams and the Bengals: Battle of Feel Good Teams on Football's Biggest Stage

New York. - Back at the start of the NFL season as any seasons, football analysts, both professional and living room laid down their pics for who would enter Sunday's Super Bowl. For me, it was Tampa and Kansas City. An admittedly boring pick but one that many would assume would at least be plausible. And I came close to looking like a genius, with the Bucs narrowly missing by 3 and the Chiefs oddly blowing an 18 point lead at home bringing us to the final stretch with two teams that by all accounts, make you feel good to root for.

The NFL is Fading, and That’s a Shame

New York. - Over the last weekend the NFL had a playoff weekend the likes of which I don’t remember in nearly 40 years of being a fan. 4 games, three ending in a game winning field goal and the fourth ending in a game winning touchdown in overtime between two teams with some of the biggest fan bases in the league. 4 games, and a combined score differential of just 15 points (which beats the previous NFL record for this round of playoff action of 18) and gave old fans like me enthusiasm for next week and certainly helped new fans get into the game.

The New York Giants: The Best Division 3 Team in the NFL

New York. - I've been a New York Giants fan since the 1980s. As a kid one of the coolest treats I ever got was being a 10 year old and meeting a ton of that eras players after Giant lineman Jim Burt (who lived in my town) coordinated an event where a select few of us got to meet L.T., Phil Simms, Phil McConkey and others. A year later, they won the first Super Bowl of my lifetime, going 14-2 that season and outscoring their opponents 105-23 during their run to the Lombardi Trophy. During my years of loyalty to Big Blue, there's been another 3 Super Bowls; including two in my 30s that were tried and true David vs Goliath wins lead by Eli Manning over Tom Brady and the Patriots . Good times, and oh how do I miss them.

Argos win home opener behind Arbuckle Magic

TORONTO. - Toronto Argonauts were back at BMO Field in Toronto led by Nick Arrrrrbuckle for the opening home game of the 2021 Season. It was Arbuckle’s first start for the Argos winning 30 to 23 over the visiting Bombers. Last week the Argos did not look ready for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, defence offense or even special teams. This week was another story with the Argos even though they had to cover for multiple injuries. Arbuckle was 23 of 32 passes completed for 310 yards. The Argo defense was close to throwing a no hitter.
