It's finally Championship Week! I really wanted to post a video of ESPN's commercial from the early 2000s advertising college basketball's championship week here. Do you remember that one? It's a little cartoon of Dickie V hopping around singing 'Championship Week, Championship Week, oh how I love Championship Week..." or something to that effect. If anyone can find that clip, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or slide into my DMs. I would really like to see it again.... Continue Reading
The Iron Bowl. The Apple Cup. The Game! Clean, Ol' Fashioned Hate! Whatever you call your game, it's here! Can you smell it in the air? No, not what the Rock is cooking! It's RIVALRY WEEK!!! The week of all weeks where you get to spend more time than normal on social media roasting your school's rival and continuing that if you win...or lose let's face it.

Made that last part up, but you get the idea.... Continue Reading
In my college football article this past week, I referenced an SNL skit to lead things off. Well, I'm doing it again, folks! You can't tame this beast. So there was a sketch in the late '90s where Will Ferrell is sitting at a bar playing Newt Gingrich next to someone playing another timely 90s figure. They had both had bad weeks in the news from what I remember. Anyways, the premise of the sketch was that these two were just meeting purely by chance in the bar talking about their crazy bad weeks. Will Ferrell as Newt Gingrich turns to the other after a few moments of silence and just shouts, "WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!"
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you...
Game 2 of the 2017 World Series.... Continue Reading
Jake is an NYC based actor who loves to put off daily responsibilities by writing and researching about all things fantasy baseball and college football. He is a life long Auburn Tigers fan, and yes, he does have the same SEC bias as ESPN. Most days, he can be found reminiscing about the 1990s Braves teams or complaining about their rebuild.
