That being said, yesterday I had a great time on the air in my sixth appearance on Adam Taxin’s radio show.

New book validates Lake, implicates Bush

It’s not in time for Christmas, but a new book due out next month will still seem like a lump of coal in Reggie Bush’s stocking this holiday.

Don’t Start Yapping Until After Monday Night

Nothing like Monday Night Football, especially when you are barely losing in your big fantasy football league and you have one player left who may push you over the top. Often times, it will be a kicker or third WR, but you still think you have a shot. Anyway, I was sent the above video, […]

Agents only have 10 minutes to sell their 1st round potential draft picks in the 2008 NFL Draft (down from 15 minutes for each team to select). Hopefully this […]

With Tuesday’s trade for Chris Chambers and their performance these last couple weeks, it seems that the San Diego Chargers are trying to get back on track…not that they’re back on track just yet.
