For years, Doug Flutie has been known most for his “Hail Flutie” play back in his Boston College days.  That will surely be one of the most talked about plays for many generations.  The 1984 Heisman Trophy winner now has something else to be remembered by. Earlier this season, in a meaningless game versus the Miami Dolphins, Flutie executed the first drop kicked extra point since 1941.  There wasn’t a soul in the stadium - aside …

Forget all the talk about Super Bowl XL being in Detroit, let’s talk about the hometown team - the Detroit Lions.  I know you Detroit fans hate Matt Millen with a passion, so I hope to give you some optimism for next year.  Firstly, there has been a coaching change, even though some fans may say ex-coach Steve Mariucci wasn’t really the problem.  The new head coach coming in is a relative unknown. He is Rod …

Everyone at some point in their life has wanted to kill the ump.  This is beyond a bad call or even bad moral judgment.  Tom Pender, Houston’s coach, collapsed on the floor Monday night with 52 seconds left in the first half.  Officials thought that he was reacting to a call that had been made as UAB’s Wen Mukubu drove to the basket and was fouled by Oliver Lafayette.  It has been a ritual in the …

The New York Knicks lost again last night to the Orlando Magic, dropping their record to 7-20. With this loss, they are now tied for the second worse record in the entire league, and have already played 18 different starting lineups.

The season did not start well for the New Orleans Hornets, the hurricane floods had forced the team move their home games to Oklahoma, their neighbors to the Northwest. Byron Scott was introduced as the team’s new coach last year, after Tim Floyd’s one year stint. Scott inherited a team that included Baron Davis, Jamal Mashburn, and Jamaal Magloire. Things went south pretty quickly with injuries and they went from a playoff contender to a team …

The last placed Penguins with new rookie sensation Sidney Crosby may have to change their address after the ‘06-07 season, when their lease at Mellon Arena expires.  Penguins already have such a good history in Pittsburgh, they used to have a cool nickname for their stadium- the Igloo, but Mellon Arena is the oldest and smallest arena in the National Hockey League.  It’s been tough sports-wise for the city of Pittsburgh since 1992, if it …

New York Jets coach, had his weekly press conference on Wednesday.  He has been routinely asked why the Jets haven’t opened up the playbook, and the continued conservative approach on offense.  Here was his reply: “We’re doing the best we can do. It sounds real good, ‘Open it up, go for broke, go do this, and go do that,” he said. “That gives you the best chance of getting blown out in a game, trying to …
