Battlebots Season 2 Episode 2 Recap

It was primed to be a big night of robot fighting as the qualifying round concluded. Once again, we got 4 full matches and 4 highlighted matches. It’s still strange to me that ABC can’t figure out how to get more than four 3-minute fights into 42 minutes of television (Comedy Central got 6, sometimes […]


Battlebots Episode 2 Preview

The first episode of the second ABC season of Battlebots is in the books. I recapped it for those that want to re-live the robot-destroying action (and hear me complain about the lack of the Kill Saws). The first episode featured 16 fights – 8 full battles and 8 for which we got highlight reels. […]

Battlebots Season 2 Episode 1 Recap

The second season of Battlebots theoretically stared a month ago with The Gears Awaken episode that featured four rumble matches to whet our palette, but after a long wait, it was finally once again Robot Fightin’ Time. Shoutout to ABC for finally embracing the name of the trophy as the Giant Nut. Way to go. […]


Not Sure If Euro or Brexit: England-Iceland Tweetcap

It’s been quite the week for our former imperial overlords. Last Thursday they voted to leave the European Union then today their soccer team went out and lost to Iceland. Yes, Iceland. Twitter erupted like the Grimsvotn volcano. Icelandic commentator, what a — Soccer St. (@SoccerSt_)


Battlebots Draft and Fantasy League

The second season of Battlebots on ABC kicks off TONIGHT. If you missed it, I wrote a preview of the preliminary round matches and revisited my overall review of the first season. In preparation for the awesomeness that is robot fighting (and because sometimes NFL draft junkies need something to do in the offseason) I got […]

Battlebots Season 2 Preview

The second season of Battlebots on ABC kicks off on Thursday night. The revival of what was once the greatest show on television was a rousing success and gave me something fun to blog about during the doldrums of the NFL offseason. ABC ran a season preview teaser show about a month ago that featured […]


5 Reasons to Hate: Argentina

The United States scored their biggest win of the Jurgen Klinsmann era by running up a 2-goal lead on Ecuador. After Ecuador scored in the 74th minute, there was only one thing the US could do. One way or another, the US held on despite being down to 10 men for the second consecutive match. […]


Euro 2016 Advancement Scenarios

With the United States scoring a huge victory over Ecuador in the Copa America Centenario Quarterfinals, it has been a bit easy to overlook the group stage matches of the European Championship. With two rounds of games already played, three teams have secured a spot in the knockout stage while only one has been completely […]


5 Reasons to Hate: Ecuador

The Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup. I still can’t believe it. And to be honest, you were probably too busy watching the Stanley Cup Finals (or the NBA Finals, because I guess they’re happening too) to notice the craziness that went down in the third set of matches in the Copa America Group Stage. […]


Copa America Advancement Scenarios

The first two games of the Group Stage are in the books for all four Copa America groups. The top two teams from each group will advance to the Knockout Stage, a single-elimination tournament. So far, 4 teams have already secured their place in the Knockout Stage and 4 have been eliminated from the tournament. This […]


Euro 2016 Preview

Starting in 1960, UEFA began hosting the European soccer championships in every even numbered year without a World Cup. Over time, the size of the tournament has expanded with the most recent expansion occuring this year – from 16 to 24 teams in the tournament. Spain enters as the two-time Defending Champions and will look […]

Ryan Shazier smokes Antonio Brown, Steelers WRs in 40-yard dash

It’s not often that linebackers outrun wide receivers, but Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier is pretty damn fast. But in terms of breakaway speed, All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown is one of the fastest players in the league. When he gets going in the open field, he’s tough to catch. For bragging rights, Shazier, Brown, Sammie […]
