Week #11: Raided yet again

If you missed the news, the Raiders are moving to Las Vegas. The Black Hole is leaving Oakland (again) for a newer, nicer, stadium in the desert. But let's talk about how we got here, and how different this is from the moving of the San Diego Chargers to ...

Week #10: March Sadness

In California March Madness is really...March Sadness. The only Californian team that is still in is UCLA. UC Davis made it in but was quickly eliminated. USC and Saint Mary's both fell in the second round. Cal and Stanford didn't even make it in. At best we ...

Week #9: The jersey returns

And so it has been found. Tom Brady's jersey was in Mexico the whole time, stolen by a member of the press. And while it's great news for Brady, sports memorabilia fans, and the FBI, it doesn't look good for journalists. Journalists are given a lot of ...

Week #8: Warriors are on the right path

Last weekend was the NHL All-Star game and skills competition, with Brent Burns, Martin Jones, and Joe Pavelski representing the San Jose Sharks in Los Angeles. And to no one's surprise, they were all booed!

Pavelski scored a goal during the tournament for the ...

Week #2: NATTY HATTY FOR PATTY

The only person who would dare upstage Patrick Marleau's four goal night is Randy Hahn, with his hilarious call after Marleau's third goal to finish a natural hat-trick: "NATTY HATTY FOR PATTY". And after scoring another, Marleau became the first player to score four goals in a single ...
