We haven’t done one of these in a year – so might as well address some things I’ve received via email and Twitter before football season kicks into high gear. If you have questions for future editions, don’t hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You come off as such a hater of the local major […]Read More August Mailbag: My D-Backs ‘hate’, the Territorial Cup rivalry, multiple favorite teams, my dating life, and more!
I haven’t written a Quick Hitters column in month so time to bring it back this time with an Arizona sports-only theme! -First, let me commend the Diamondbacks for turning things around quickly after it seemed like their season was going in the absolute dumpster. It also helped that Paul Goldschmidt hit .620 last week. […]Read More Friday, June 15th Quick Hitters: Arizona Sports Teams Edition
The Cubs-Nationals nearly five hour 9 inning marathon was beyond belief on Thursday night. I’m writing this column minutes after running around my house, as an ecstatic Cubs fan, nearly deciding to break open a bottle of champagne for my favorite team advancing to their third straight National League Championship Series! In what will go […]Read More Friday, 10/13 Quick Hitters: GO CUBS GO, Weekend Football Thoughts + Best Bets
FIRST DOWN: Khalil Tate – a performance for the ages! Two weeks ago I wrote that Arizona football was a dying brand under Rich Rodriguez. And when Saturday’s game in Boulder kicked off I thought no differently. Nor did most Arizona football fans. But when starting QB Brandon Dawkins, who I maintained shouldn’t be playing in […]Read More Four Downs – October 9th: The Savior of Arizona Wildcats Football Present and Future?
The Arizona Diamondbacks’ 11-8 Wild Card game victory over the Colorado Rockies was honestly one of the craziest baseball games I can remember in recent memory. Outside of last year’s World Series Game 7, no postseason game comes to mind that reminds me of Wednesday night’s insanity. Four triples, including one by Archie Bradley, a […]Read More Friday, 10/6 Quick Hitters: Can the D-Backs take down the Dodgers? + Best Bets
I’ll admit it – I was wrong. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! I said New England would go undefeated…and that’s done in Game #1. Stunning and very impressive win by Kansas City. Among the most shocking in recent memory. Completely dominant offensive performance by the Alex Smith and the Chiefs. And Tom Brady had ZERO TD passes […]Read More Friday, 9/8 Quick Hitters: My New England 19-0 Prediction? GONE! + Best Bets
My very brief live blog during the ASU-New Mexico State Game: 1st Quarter: Wow ASU’s offense looks sharp. Maybe they’ll be better than the 5 win team I predicted. Even Manny Wilkins looks like a player this year. 2nd Quarter: Wait, the Aggies are only down by 1 at halftime? Will Todd Graham survive all […]Read More Friday, 9/1 Quick Hitters: ASU Football is who we thought they were + Week 1 Best Bets
FIRST DOWN: Should the NFL reduce the six game suspension levied upon Cowboys second year RB Ezekiel Elliott? To be honest, if the allegations are true, Elliott is getting off easy with only six games. The NFL did its due diligence by undertaking a year-long investigation into Elliott’s misdeads against his girlfriend (see the TMZ […]Read More Four Downs – August 14th: Is the Ezekiel Elliott suspension justified?
You know what I love about this time of year? That most every NFL and college football team’s fanbase has reasons to be optimistic. Even you, Bears fans (despite your new starting QB throwing a Pick-6 on his first possession of the preseason). After two Preseason plays, Chicago Bears fans already experiencing … pic.twitter.com/e9XGT6xsgf — […]Read More Friday, 8/11 Quick Hitters: Preseason Football, D-Backs, Uniform Watch, and Josh Rosen’s Comments
Which is worth more: the amount you’re paying for this column or Brandon Knight’s current trade value? Answer: They’re both the same…ZERO! -While that may have been a lousy joke, sadly the statement above is true. Knight is likely done for the 2017-18 season with a torn ACL suffered in a Miami Beach pick-up game […]Read More Friday, 7/28 Quick Hitters: The Cardinals’ New Secret Weapon?
