Got Mail?

December 31, 2009 1 comment

It’s New Year’s Eve which can only mean one thing: there’s still time to squeeze in one last Got Mail? blog. And don’t worry I won’t pull a Reilly and devote the entire piece to Tiger Woods. In fact, it’s my goal to steer clear of all Tiger questions period. Despite being asked completely loaded quandaries such as, “Which mistress thus far has been the hottest?”

Loaded of course being the gun my wife would be pointing at me should my tongue loosen.

Let’s do this. Read more…


NFL Week 17 Update

December 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Those of you who have been reading my work since the T-Mof Sports days, might remember a weekly feature I used to run called Ben’s Jumbilia. Essentially, it was a team-by-team breakdown of significant happenings in the NFL and the correlation to fantasy teams.

Once upon a time I, along with 73-percent of America (seems reasonable) got sucked into one of the three most exciting NBA dynasties of all-time. That list includes Bill Russell’s Celtics, the Showtime Lakers and of course, my personal favorite, The Jordan Rules Bulls.

Who Am I?

Too many weird things are happening and I’m beginning to slowly lose my brain because of them. A.I. crying during a press conference? Bernard Berrian getting gobbled up by the Minnesota Po for driving 104 mph, just two days after Adrian Peterson got stopped for going 109? The Raiders beat the Steelers?
